San Diego doctor Mark Mofid hopes to shake the negative reputation of gluteal augmentation. Whenever the procedure is mentioned in the news, you often hear horror stories. Reports of lost limbs, fake doctors, and implant flipping have dominated the headlines. Mark Mofid believes those are worst case scenarios done by unqualified doctors.
Mark Mofid made it clear to Plastic Surgery Practice that his procedures are done with safety in mind:
“I place only intramuscular implants, and I never overdo it even if patients try to push for larger implants.”
Gluteal augmentation is a procedure that enhances the size of one’s buttocks. It can also fix some deformities in that area. When done correctly, the desired results comes to fruition. When done poorly, you get the nightmare stories as mentioned before.
Mark Mofid earned a bachelors degree at Harvard University. He followed that up by attending Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. There, he obtained his medical degree. He specialized in plastic surgery as well as general surgery. Mofid has his own practice in La Jolla, California.
Mofid is known for many aspects of plastic surgery. These aspects include facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, chemical peels, and much more. Mofid told Sharp Healthcare that he values his patients, which is why he does everything in his power to limit mistakes during procedures:
“Frequently patients will tell me, ‘my life is in your hands’ before we go into the operating room and I respect that. I try to do everything I can to deliver the kind of result that I would for my own mother or my own sister or someone who’s extremely close to me. And I do realize that what I’m about to do is in many cases the most important thing that’s ever happened to that person.”
