Dr. Mark Mofid Takes Care in Shaping A Boutique Plastic Surgery Practice

Dr. Mark Mofid, MD, FACS, is known for his expertise in gluteal augmentation (also known as butt lifts), but he is also recognized for leading research on mortality from gluteal fat grafting. Butt lifts first gained popularity in Brazil and have since taken off in North America, however, Dr. Mark Mofid and other plastic surgeons caution that there are risks involved in the procedure that need to be fully addressed.

Together with other renowned plastic surgeons, Dr. Mark Mofid published a study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal in April 2017 that looked at the risks of gluteal augmentation and provided recommendations to make it safer. One of the ways that gluteal augmentation can be made safer, Dr. Mofid advises, is to avoid fat injections into the deep muscles of the buttocks, which carries more risk of complications. Dr. Mofid designed an implant that can be positioned easily between muscles, which also makes for a more precise procedure. He also refuses to place implants that are too large, even when patients ask; for Dr. Mofid, the safety of his patients is always his top concern.

Dr. Mark Mofid doesn’t just exercise care in his surgeries; he also extends the same care to his practice. In an interview with Medical Spa MD, a community of plastic surgeons that work in nonsurgical cosmetic medicine, Dr. Mark Mofid describes the care he takes in shaping his boutique plastic surgery practice.

The office staff is small; Mark Mofid works with his wife – a skilled dermatologist – and a nurse, as well as four full-time office staff and two surgical technologists. In order to hire administrative assistants, he and his office conduct rigorous searches to find the best individuals who will be the front face of the office. Dr. Mofid notes that many of the people who were previous administrative assistants in his office have gone on to work for some of the best companies in plastic surgery/dermatology.

Dr. Mofid graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University in the early 1990s. He went on to complete his medical training at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His attention to detail with each patient, taking into consideration their unique body shapes and needs, has generated many loyal and satisfied clients.
