Mark Mofid, M.D., F.A.C.S., of La Jolla, California, is known for being innovative. He always wants to come up with better and safer ways of performing plastic surgeries. He says that beyond performing these types of surgeries, as well as reconstructive surgeries, he spends his time performing a lot of research to come up with new solutions, such as designing new implants to replace older designs that he doesn’t like.
Dr. Mark Mofid is one of the foremost authorities in America when it comes to performing gluteal augmentation on women. He says that this type of surgery has a long history going back to 1984. This type of surgery is safely performed more than 20,000 times a year in Brazil but he says in the US about the only time it gets reported on it is because something went wrong which means there are only 1,000 procedures like this done in here.
He is trying to change this perception of gluteal augmentation in the United States, both with his peers and the general public. One way he has done so is by creating a new implant which is safer and much more effective than the older design. As other plastic surgeons have learned about his design they, too, are now using his implants.
There are a few problems with the old design, he says. First, they are too high profile and so don’t really look natural. Second, they just don’t work with the actual human body and the muscles in that area. Because of this, they will get out of place over time and the result is a sagging butt.
Dr. Mark Mofid’s design, though, does work with the muscles so it stays exactly where it is placed. Also, it features a lower profile which is more visually pleasing. It is also a very safe implant because that is always his number one priority in whatever procedure he does. Dr. Mark Mofid is always innovating and there will likely be more new designs in the plastic surgery industry in the future due to his excellent research.
