Dr. Joel Aronowitz is a prominent Los Angeles plastic surgeon with a reputation built over 25 years for compassionate patient care, refined surgical skill, and a passion to improve lives through leading edge plastic surgery.
Dr. Aronowitz’s scope of practice encompasses most areas of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery with an emphasis on use of the body’s own natural adipose or fat tissues for regrowth and regeneration of body tissues damaged from surgery, radiation and age with less need for invasive muscle flap surgery and foreign implants.
Dr. Aronowitz founded the University Stem Cell Center in 2009 to conduct IRB reviewed clinical adipose stem cell research not widely available yet for American patients. These highly publicized studies use the patients’ own fat stores for breast enlargement and breast regrowth after breast cancer surgery and radiation treatment.
Slow adoption of proven breast cancer surgery advances motivated Dr. Aronowitz to found the Breast Preservation Foundation (BPF), a non-profit 501c. The BPF works to promote innovative alternatives to disfiguring breast cancer surgery, such as nipple sparing mastectomy. Charitable funds are used help advocacy groups educate women about these options and teach Onco-plastic operations to cancer surgeons in America and internationally.
Many notable people and celebrities count Dr. Aronowitz as their plastic surgeon and he is frequently the preferred choice of doctors for their own families based on his reputation for natural results and skill in handling the most difficult problems. He travels widely to speak on advances in Cell Based Surgery Therapies, Oncoplastic Surgery and present his latest clinical research findings. Dr. Aronowitz is recognized in numerous media appearances and in print as an expert spokesperson on issues related to emerging cellular therapies, cosmetic and oncoplastic surgery.
Dr. Aronowitz private practice is based at the highly ranked Cedars Sinai Medical Center where he served as for many years as Chief, Division Plastic Surgery, the Medical Executive Committee and other leadership roles. He is deeply committed to improving patient care through active involvement in lay advocacy groups and professional societies. He serves on Board of Directors of the American Society of Breast Disease, Faculty for the ASBD School of Oncoplastic Surgery, expert for the California Board of Medical Quality Assurance and is Assistant Clinical Professor at USC Keck School of Medicine.
