Dr. Mark Mofid, MD FACS is a doctor located in La Jolla, California, His medical specialty is plastic surgery. The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has certified him and the American Board of Plastic Surgery has done likewise. His commitment to his patients is that he will do the highest-quality work in an understanding and caring way. He uses reconstructive and aesthetic procedures that are state-of-the-art in nature and brings to the table both technical and artistic skills. His goal is to create natural looking results that make his patients feel good about themselves.
At Harvard University Dr. Mark Mofid graduated magna cum laude when earning his bachelor’s degree. At the John Hopkins University School of Medicine he learned medicine. He graduated with an MD and received training in both plastic surgery and general surgery while attending this university. In addition to practicing at his own clinic, he also acts as a staff surgeon at three area hospitals.
Dr. Mark Mofid can perform many different types of plastic surgery. Among these are breast augmentation (whether the patient wants to go smaller or bigger), facial reconstruction, buttock augmentation, post-trauma facial surgery repair, and more. He is one of the foremost experts, in particular in buttock augmentation in the United States. He says that in order to achieve this he had to travel to Brazil where plastic surgeons perform this type of operation far more than American plastic surgeons do. In particular, he learned from one of the best in the business when he had Raul Gonzalez, MD, teach him everything he knew in Ribeirao Preto.
Buttock augmentation gets a bum rap in America, Dr. Mark Mofid says, because it’s not very well understood even by those in his profession. It’s rarely in the news for good reasons, pretty much only bad ones. He’s at the forefront of trying to change this perception as many women would otherwise be interested in this procedure if they knew the truth about it. In particular, many women want to return to the body they had before they gave birth and having their butt sag isn’t something they like. Buttock augmentation can of course help with that as he points out.
