Dr. Aria graduated summa cum laude from UCLA and then attended UC San Diego School of Medicine where he completed his medical school education, residency training, and his master’s degree in clinical research. During residency training, he authored numerous medical journal articles and textbook chapters and was elected to the board of the California Society of Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery and the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery.
He later completed a rigorous Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery Fellowship accredited by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston – where the majority of laser, skin tightening, and body contouring devices are invented. While at Harvard, Dr. Aria was trained by world experts and inventors of most lasers and body contouring devices in order to operate them both safely and effectively.
During and after his Harvard fellowship training, Dr. Aria developed an interest and passion in tumescent liposuction, a specialized liposuction technique developed by dermatologist Dr. Jeffrey Klein that does not utilize general anesthesia and is safer and more effective than traditional liposuction. He completed a second fellowship in Lipedema Liposuction and Liposculpture at the Roxbury Institute in Beverly Hills with Dr. David Amron where he trained in a specialized and unique three-dimensional circumferential approach to lymphatic spanning liposuction for lipedema.
Dr. Aria has a passion for lipedema treatment and management as well as liposculpture to cosmetically improve fat disproportion.
In his spare time, Dr. Aria enjoys playing piano and guitar, playing tennis, trying new foods, and spending quality time with his family and friends.
