Mark Mofid is a San Diego-based plastic surgeon surgeon who specializes in gluteal augmentation and facial reconstruction surgeries. He completed his undergraduate degree at Harvard University and his medical degree and residency at the Johns Hopkins School of medicine, and he is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery as well as the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. Mark Mofid’s practice covers the La Jolla, Del Mar and Chula Vista sections of the city of San Diego, and his practice also includes his wife, who is a dermatologist. Dr. Mofid himself performs a variety of cosmetic plastic surgeries.
In a recent interview with Medical Spa MD, Dr. Mofid explained some of the details of his practice. When asked what kind of technology he uses most frequently, he listed the Cutera laser that they use for hair removal and certain vein treatments as well as chemical peels that are used for dermabrasion and facial resurfacing. The interviewer also asked Mark Mofid about nonsurgical options that he offers his patients, and Dr. Mofid said that nonsurgical options are popular and a necessary part of any plastic surgery practice. He also said that fillers, chemodenervation agents and other nonsurgical treatments are actually quite popular.
Mark Mofid has gained a reputation in the field of cosmetic surgeries for his dedication to making treatments safer for patients while still achieving results. He is perhaps best known for his innovations in the area of gluteal implants. Dr. Mofid realized years ago that most butt implants were destined to lose their appearance and sag over time, and he wanted a better product that was still perfectly safe to implement. The gluteal implant model that he created has become extremely popular thanks to its low profile and excellent intramuscular positioning, and because it simply looks more natural than older models.
Mark Mofid has been at the forefront of gluteal augmentations for years, thanks in large part to his work with Dr. Raul Gonzalez of Brazil, widely renowned as one of the leading gluteal augmentation experts in the world. While gluteal implants and augmentations have generally received negative media coverage in the United States, Dr. Mofid has sought to change that perception, and in recent years, public opinion towards these treatments has improved as the number of implants in the country has increased. Dr. Mofid continues to work towards new innovations in gluteal augmentations and in the field of cosmetic plastic surgery as a whole.
