When plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mark Mofid sees something he doesn’t like about doing a particular surgery he does something about it. One example is gluteal augmentation. This surgery is pretty common in Brazil but not so much in the United States. One issue is that Americans tend to view it in a negative light, by and large because the only time the press reports on this type of surgery is when it has ended in a malpractice suit or other big issue.
Dr. Mark Mofid is doing his part to change this perception because he says that otherwise a lot of women would really like to get this type of surgery. This is especially true for women who have had children and had their bodies permanently changed as a result. He says there are two main issues. One, some unscrupulous plastic surgeons will install bigger implants than our safe which is something he would never do. Safety has to always be the main concern with patients, he says, and two it ruins the image of this form of surgery and impugns on the reputation of the industry overall.
Second, he says the old-style implants just aren’t that good. Dr. Mark Mofid said that whoever designed them didn’t go a very good job because they are very prone to slipping out of the muscles they were placed in. This ends up giving women who have had this procedure done a sagging look in the posteriors which is pretty unattractive.
To solve this, Dr. Mark Mofid poured in hours of research coming up with something better. He did so and his implant is now being used by many others in the industry. His implant is safe, effective, and stays right where it is put.
Dr. Mark Mofid practices in La Jolla, California. He has patients coming to him from across San Diego County. All of his patients come from word of mouth of prior patients because he doesn’t do any advertising. He says he would rather let his results speak for themselves than put ads on tv, radio, magazines, and the sort.
