Mark Mofid is a doctor in San Diego, California. His specialty is plastic surgery. He offers several cosmetic surgeries at his clinic including those for the face, breast, body, posterior, and skin. One of the types of surgeries he is most known for performing is gluteal augmentation. He says that this area of plastic surgery is rarely in the news in a positive light. He wants to alter the perceptions of his fellow plastic surgeons and the general public which he does through publishing thorough research papers.
In 1993 Dr. Mark Mofid graduated from Harvard Medical School. He then attended John Hopkins University and graduated in 1997 with his MD. He completed his internship, residency, and fellowship at John Hopkins University.
Over the course of his medical career Dr. Mark Mofid has won a number of awards. He was named a Top Plastic Surgeon in 2011 and in that same year was honored as a San Diego Super Doctor. In 2010 he was presented with the Patients’ Choice Award and he is listed on the Healthgrades Honor Role which grades him for his patient’s online reviews.
Some people believe that people who have plastic surgery are just being vain. Dr. Mark Mofid said that happens sometimes but for other people they need this type of surgery due to disease or accidents, for example. He says that many women who have extensive scarring from breast cancer want to look and feel better, for example. He also brings up facial skin cancer as a great reason to have plastic surgery or because they have skin lesions that need to be removed. While many people think of just breast augmentation he also points out he has women who want breast reduction or breast reconstruction.
Dr. Mark Mofid is also very innovative. When he started his career he has said that the available gluteal implants left a lot to be desired and he always had to carve pieces off them before placing them in the patient. He invented what’s called the Low Profile Round Gluteal Implant that is now being used by him and other plastic surgeons around the world which solved these problems.
