Dr. Mark Mofid is one of the most popular plastic surgeons in the Greater San Diego area. He trained at both Harvard and Johns Hopkins. His practice in the La Jolla neighborhood features a plastic surgeon (him), a dermatologist (his wife) and a nurse. There’s an accredited surgery center attached to the office, too.

Dr. Mofid’s practice sees thousands of patients per year. But in addition to standard customer care, Mofid also does research to make plastic surgery safer. Several generations of surgical implants, particularly breast implants, were leaky or otherwise defective. This not only gave plastic surgery a bad reputation, it also took a terrible toll on patients.

Gluteal implants were on their way to developing a similar reputation. People often went too big for their frame. Implants were not well-designed to fit in intramuscular spaces. Many patients were risking complications that Mofid thought were just unnecessary.

Mark Mofid has long been a stickler for safety. His reputation is that of someone who puts patient health before aesthetics. For example, many patients want the largest implants possible. Dr. Mofid will not exceed the limits of what he knows is safe.

Because of dissatisfaction with existing gluteal implants, Dr. Mark Mofid eventually developed his own. While this may seem extreme, he wasn’t content to continue working with an inferior product. The implants he created are easier to position and they look more natural. Doctors, patients and the public at large see it as a big improvement.

Dr. Mark Mofid has long held that doing good work is more important than advertising. In his case, it seems to be true. Mofid admires his workers, even the admin staff. He looks for motivated people who are eager to move on after two to four years. In part because of the way he develops staff, he’s become a respected member of the community in general. Positions in his office are highly sought after.
