Mark Mofid is a plastic surgeon from San Diego, California. He acquired his education and training from the prestigious Harvard and John-Hopkins University. With over a decade of experience, he has consistently provided quality services to hundreds of patients. Most times, when the subject of gluteal augmentation (also known as buttock augmentation) is mentioned, it is rarely good. As such, Dr. Mark Mofid knows the obstacle ahead of him — of explaining, discussing, and perfecting the procedure. He hopes to accomplish this based on his extensive research and unique deviations. Ultimately, he hopes his peers know about the subject, so they are well aware of its dangers. Mofid’s desire to enhance this procedure shows his dedication and out-of-the-box thinking.
Mark Mofid is confident about his methods. Although patients ask for larger buttock implants, Mofid never yields and only implements the correct amount. These patients believe it will increase their social status and fame, but Mofid claims it only hurts them over time.
Many consider implants as the only way to increase buttock size; however, there is another method. Fat grafting serves almost the same purpose, but it is easier and has a much smaller recovery time. When he was frustrated with a silicone implant method, he created his own “Low Profile Round Gluteal Implant” for the company Implantech. Mofid, however, did not receive any royalties. With creative ideas, Mofid was able to acquire trust from industry leaders — which would be significant in his later career.
Mark Mofid initially learned his techniques about buttock implants from Ribeirao Preto in Brazil, one of the leading countries in body contouring surgery. Mofid truly believed that with correct procedure and implementation, buttock implants can have little to no complications. Today, with precedents set by surgeons like Mark Mofid, Brazil has significant demand for buttock augmentation. In contrast, America has far low averages; it simply lacks supply. Though, it can change with influence from American surgeons who are set to pave the way.
More recently, Mark Morfid has developed a Seri scaffold method to prevent nipple dilation after circumareolar mastopexies. He strongly believes that these surgeries are similar to the Fibonacci sequence or golden ratio, where the ultimate goal is an aesthetic appeal.
