How Dr. Mark Mofid Brought An Innovation To Gluteal Augmentation Surgery
Dr. Mark Mofid has had his own practice in Southern California for the past several years. He performs plastic surgery at his clinic and does reconstructive surgery at a number of hospitals in the greater San Diego area. He also teaches his medical specialties at the San Diego campus of the University of California. He has been featured several times in industry publications including the very influential Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery magazine.
One of Dr. Mark Mofid’s specialties is gluteal augmentation. He is one of America’s foremost experts in this type of surgery. Because it’s not that common of a surgery in the United States he had traveled several years ago to Brazil in order to be trained to do this surgery on women. He learned the best way to go about doing a gluteal augmentation from Dr. Raul Gonzalez who is an internationally recognized expert in this.
After returning to America Dr. Mark Mofid saw a great deal of room for improvement when it came to the implants used during a gluteal augmentation surgery. He says that the implants he was using were inferior because they weren’t correctly designed to fit in with the body’s muscle structure. This caused them to inevitably sag. He performed research over a period of a few years in order to come up with a superior design. This new implant is now being used by him and other plastic surgeons because it stays in place, has a lower profile, and is cosmetically much more appealing.
Dr. Mark Mofid says that the most important consideration at his practice is the safety and satisfaction of his patients. He says that he has had to turn away some patients who insist on bigger gluteal implants then are safe, for example. This is despite the fact that these patients are willing to pay more for larger implants but he says that safety always trumps money in his practice.
