Dr. Bryan Gawley is most proud of his reputation for outstanding patient outcomes combined with his branded level of exceptional customer service.
Dr. Bryan Gawley has become one of Arizona’s most sought after plastic surgeons, spearheading his practice growth based on extensive credentials, cutting edge training and experience, and a compassionate bedside manner. Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Gawley has created a full spectrum practice that includes, Gawley Plastic Surgery, North Scottsdale Outpatient Surgery Center, his clinical skin spa–MD Skin Lounge. He is the former Chief of Plastic Surgery at HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center, and has been voted “Top Doctor” by his peers for six consecutive years.
Gawley’s passion stems from a love of people and the positive ways in which he can affect change in a patient’s life. Whether performing breast reconstruction for a cancer patient, or performing eyelid surgery for someone for a boost of confidence, Gawley loves the variety he experiences in his practice.

“The diversity and profound effect that you can have on an individual’s life was my attraction to plastic and reconstructive surgery,” Gawley says.

Dr. Gawley has created a reputation for outstanding results is in breast surgery, both reconstructive and cosmetic, natural facial rejuvenation, and post-pregnancy procudures such as tummy tucks and body lifts. He insists on providing the best and most natural results in the safest surgical environment possible, and patients come from all over the United States seeking his services. Because of this self-imposed standard, Gawley opened the North Scottsdale Outpatient Surgery Center, an accredited private operating facility.

“MD Skin Lounge is my concept of an elegant and fun location to create an amazing experience,” Gawley explains. “MD Skin Lounge is the marriage of these concepts: fun location or environment combined with the highest level of training, experience, and safety in the aesthetic business.”

Gawley has an impressive career built on 13 years of education and training and an artistic eye, but it’s his staff that he credits with setting his practice apart from others.

“I am continually amazed at their teamwork and compassion to provide patients with the best possible experience from the first point of contact on the telephone through their last post-operative appointment,” Gawley says.

Gawley’s most recent career success is the opening of MD Skin Lounge, which celebrated its first anniversary in November, 2016. MD Skin Lounge was developed on Gawley’s belief that the natural leaders in the skin care and med spa business should be plastic surgeons and dermatologists, not businesses looking for a profit.

MD Skin Lounge is my concept of an elegant and fun location to create an amazing experience.


I moved to Arizona in 1986. I attended Junior high and High school in Mesa, Arizona and then attended the University of Arizona for undergraduate studies and Medical School. I completed my general surgery and plastic surgery residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston from 2000-2005, and then returned to Scottsdale in the summer of 2005 at which time I started my plastic surgery practice.

Contrary to most doctors, I really did not know that I wanted to do what I do today until pretty late in the game. I decided to attend medical school in lieu of an offer to work for Merck as a pharmaceutical sales rep. During medical school I quickly knew that I enjoyed surgery. I gravitated towards plastic surgery as it fit my personality and really required a passion for anatomy, problem solving, and artistry. As important, plastic surgery and aesthetics has allowed me to grow my entrepreneurial spirit and business interests as well.

As I’ve now been in practice for 12 years, I can tell you that my true satisfaction is in making a difference in the lives of others. I have been fortunate to have grown my practice over a relatively short time into one of the premiere plastic surgery practices in the Southwest. I specialize in Aesthetic surgery of the face, breast, and body, and reconstructive breast surgery. Breast augmentation, breast lifts, tummy tucks, and facelifting are among my most common procedures.

My profession is one that is very special. Patients allow me to be a part of a very personal journey. They put there trust in me and i find the relationships that we generate are the most rewarding part of my profession.

Beyond patient care, I have been fortunate to grow several businesses based on the simple premise of value creation and amazing client experience. Whether it is my plastic surgery practice, our outpatient surgery center, or or state of the art Clinical spa and skin care centers—each strives to over deliver to the client and create a memorable experience exceeding their expectations.


I believe a modern man is not afraid to be himself. He leads by example and exerts influence by motivating and empowering others.

I am not afraid to be myself…and am confident but humble, driven but embrace lift outside work, and I try to lead by example. Although i am passionate about being a physician and a plastic surgeon, I am motivated by making a difference in the lives of others; my patients, my co-workers and team, and my family. I strive to have an impact in the lives of others and more than anything i hope this is my legacy.
