Dr. Mark Mofid is a rising surgeon working in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He also owns a series of offices, mainly working at his office in San Diego. The M. D. offers a variety of procedures including breast augmentation, fillers, facelifts, liposuction, and the still widely talked about gluteal augmentation.
The procedure made a debut to the mouth of social media worldwide in 2013, and after that, it became somewhat of a trend, at least for select people. Those who were not going to get under the knife used other means of achieving the result such as underwear with backside padding and harnesses to lift up the buttock, and make it look perkier, rounder, and more substantial.
Cosmetic surgery has been a trend over the years, rising and fading depending on the times. Celebrities and social media influencers have a lot to say on the matter buy what do the professionals performing the surgeries have to say?
Dr. Mark Mofid, for example, has been performing the surgery for gluteal augmentation for several years and completely backs up the procedure. He will gladly take patients for the process but only if his hard limits regarding the gluteal augmentation surgery are being respected and not overstepped.
As with any other cosmetic surgery procedure, this one also has its risks if it is overdone. Administering too large of an implant can lead to negative effects some time after as gravity will continually pull the implant down and it can even displace it so much that it leads to disfigurement. That is not to say that the results are unsightly, but the backside does lose its shape substantially, and the implants need to be removed as they can move and flip around in the body.
Because of that, Dr. Mark Mofid only administers up to 330 ccs if the body shape and build of the patient allow it. The first and foremost priority is the safety of the patient and their long-term satisfaction with the procedure. Dr. Mark Mofid strongly encourages surgeons who perform the procedure to set some had limits as well and to never overstep those boundaries for the sake of their medical integrity and the safety of their patients.
