Meet Dr. Scurlock

We are proud to announce that Dr. Joshua Scurlock is joining the Avana Plastic Surgery family. He is an extremely sought after cosmetic and bariatric surgeon with an impressive pedigree. He completed his general surgery training at the University of Massachusetts which ultimately culminated in him being chosen as Chief Resident. His extensive exposure to bariatric surgery, and the inevitable issue of excess skin that coincides with massive weight loss, sparked his undeniable passion for cosmetics. Dr. Scurlock then went on to be the sole surgeon selected out of thousands to join one of the most prestigious practices in Southern California, which included the president of the ABCS (American Board of Cosmetic Surgery). This opportunity gave him access to study cutting edge body sculpting techniques with world renown surgeons from South America, Australia and throughout Europe. He is instilled with a passion to continually educate himself in the practice of Cosmetic Surgery to provide the best results to his patients. He subscribes to his mentor’s mantra of, “if you stop learning, you should stop operating.”

Prior to pursuing medical school, Dr. Scurlock was the quarterback for a professional football team in Stockholm, Sweden. When you meet him, you will soon understand that he brings that same jovial competitive spirit to Avana. Dr. Scurlock was heavily recruited nationally after his training and when he was asked why he wanted to practice in Southern Florida he responded with, “I want to be the Tom Brady of Cosmetic Surgery. If you desire to be the best at what you do, you have to compete against the best.”

Dr. Scurlock will now bring his artistic, minimally invasive, patient centered, fun loving style of cosmetics to Avana. This will include scarless breast augmentation, high-definition body sculpting with fat transfer, complex breast lift and breast revisional work, fat emulsification and skin tightening, high-definition tummy tuck and more. He is one of the brightest young stars in the world of cosmetic surgery and we are beyond excited to welcome him to Avana, and his new hometown, Miami, Florida.
