Dr. Mark Mofid Sets New Standards for Plastic Surgeries

When Dr. Mark Mofid began his private practice, around eight years ago, it didn’t take a long time for him to realize that the available silicone body products were too large to place in-between muscles. The implant procedure was quite complicated, and the large silicone made a patient’s buttock look deficient.

Having been trained by the best, Dr. Mark Mofid soon developed an eye that seeks detail. He immediately started working on a procedure to design round gluteal silicon implants for Implantech. The initial product he developed had a tapered shape and profile that eased the implant procedure. Also, the implant had an excellent body-volume ratio that made a patient’s derriere look proportional.

With an increased demand for buttock augmentation surgeries in Brazil, America is gradually following suit. According to Dr. Mark Mofid, his new procedure will go a long way to reduce surgical complications thereby increasing the popularity of buttock augmentation.

Mark Mofid has the same analytical eye when it comes to other reconstruction procedures. He became the first plastic surgeon to publish an eyelid surgery technique. According to Mark, it is not necessary to remove much fat, skin, and muscle in the lower blepharoplasty as it helps in eye repositioning and support.
