Dr. Mark Mofid, Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Mark Mofid is one of the most popular plastic surgeons in the greater San Diego area. He is especially well-known for perfecting the way that gluteal augmentations are performed. When he started doing gluteal implants, Dr. Mark Mofid was frustrated by their size. He was convinced they were too large to implant safely.
Initially, Dr. Mark Mofid would re-shape each implant until it was properly sized for safe intramuscular insertion. Then, he developed his own model. With Implantech, he developed the Low Profile Round Gluteal Implant. This product is not only safer, it also looks more natural and well-proportioned than other implants on the market.
Dr. Mark Mofid has a well-rounded practice, and does much more than butt lifts and implants. But when he noticed the uptick in demand for this surgery, he was determined to make it as safe as possible. Although some patients want to super-size their derrieres, he will never go larger than 330cc. Mofid takes medical ethics surgery. He knows it’s his job to be aware of complications. Patients don’t know until he informs them.
Mofid is also one of the best-educated practitioners in the region. He completed his undergraduate studies at Harvard University, and attended medical school at Johns Hopkins. Although he’s an expert at what he does, Mofid is also renowned for his communication skills and bedside manner. He’s very effective at explaining procedures and possible side effects to patients. He always makes sure he understands their goals and motivations before operating and more
