Dr. Mark Mofid has been working with Dr. Gonzales from Brazil to create a better, safer implant for use in gluteal augmentation. Brazil is currently the most popular country to get the procedure done and is a destination for patients around the world who are looking to get a larger derriere. This is proven by the statistics of 20,000 surgeries in Brazil in 2012 compared to the 1,000 or so completed in the United States that year. This small number could explain why the procedure has only made the news in the United States because of celebrities who had the surgery and malpractice. Incidentally, Dr. Mark Mofid believes this could be changed with his invention that will make the lives of the patients better.
Based out of San Diego, Dr. Mark Mofid founded the M. Mofid M.D. FAC Facial and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery practice in July of 2004. Additionally, he is also affiliated with multiple hospitals in San Diego and the surrounding areas including Palomar Health Downtown Campus and Scripps Memorial Hospital. He not only performs gluteal augmentations, but a wide variety of other surgeries such as liposuction, face lifts, breast implants, and many more. He received a world-class education through the prestigious Harvard University as well as the Johns Hopkins University for his residency. At Harvard, he was a magna cum laude graduate when he completed his undergraduate degree. Impressively, during his time at Johns Hopkins, he completed a fellowship in advanced craniofacial surgery. Dr. Mark Mofid is board-certified to practice plastic surgery in the United States and was the leader of the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation’s (ASERF) task force for Gluteal Fat Grafting.
Above all else, Dr. Mark Mofid is committed to the safety of his patients and will only perform surgeries that he knows their body can handle that will produce the best looking results. Unfortunately, many doctors in the field do not abide by these same practices and will perform whatever procedures the patients requests without stressing the risks involved in order to charge higher rates. Thankfully, Dr. Mark Mofid looks out for his patients instead of the bottom line.
