With the negative attention surrounding butt implants and botched plastic surgery, Dr. Mark Mofid works for more than just a smile on his clients’ faces. Dr. Mark Mofid tells Plastic Surgery Practice, “I place only intramuscular implants, and I never overdo it even if patients try to push for larger implants.” Mark Mofid indeed proves what it means to be an ethical medical professional; doctors must face the decision every day, of whether or not keeping a client safe rather than happy is valid.
Mark Mofid has put in hours of research to innovate the practice of butt implants. At first, performing the procedure was frustrating because the silicone implants were too big and Mofid had to do the time-consuming task of filing them down before surgery. Mark Mofid decided to do something about this by designing the Low Profile Round Gluteal Implant for Implantech which provided better shape and proportion for his patients.
According to Mark Mofid, he learned from the best. Raul Gonzalez, a plastic surgeon in Brazil who has been practicing since 1984, taught Mofid all of what he knows. Gonzalez says there is not much of a demand in America for buttocks enhancement, but he thinks that the more surgeons get training, the more people will be interested in surgery.
Mofid conducted a study to ensure reliable results when providing butt implants. He compared the waist-to-hip ratio and weight of all Playboy magazine centerfolds dating back to 1953. He found that on average most women had a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.68. He says this is the aesthetic ideal across all of society and men typically prefer a small waist with full hips on a woman.
Dr. Mofid got an early start to excellence with an undergraduate degree from Harvard University and a medical degree from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is board certified in San Diego and La Jolla as a plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
