As of 13 March 2017, Aguilar is serving a one-year suspension from any football activity after headbutting a referee.
Aguilar won the Paraguayan Primera División title with his first club, Sportivo Luqueño, in 2007. He then transferred to Argentine Primera División side Colón de Santa Fe, where he played for one year. Subsequently, Aguilar played for San Luis of the Mexican Primera División, before joining Argentine Primera's side Arsenal de Sarandí.
In 2012, Aguilar was sent on loan to Club Tijuana. He started in 20 matches for the club during the Apertura tournament, which Tijuana won, defeating Toluca in the final, even scoring one of the goals himself.
On 8 March 2017, during the Copa MX round-of-16 match against Tijuana, Aguilar headbutted referee Fernando Hernández. Despite initially being given a ten game suspension, a strike by the referee's association protesting the punishments of Aguilar and Enrique Triverio of Toluca ultimatley led to a revised year-long ban for Aguilar from any official football activity.
