Meet Dr. Aguilar

A rare triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. E. Fred Aguilar, III, joined our team of plastic surgeons in Houston, TX, in 2016 after years in private practice. He and Dr. Clayton Moliver connected because they share many of the same passions. Together, they can serve a greater number of patients and a more diverse range of conditions. In fact, that diversity is one thing that Dr. Aguilar loves most about practicing. Thanks to the range of surgical techniques available today, he’s able to provide personalized solutions for his patients’ concerns, and he genuinely enjoys making a difference in their lives. His decades of experience and refined expertise advance our reputation as a premier plastic surgery facility in the area.
