Mark Mofid La Jolla improves gluteal implants

Doctors who train at John Hopkins and Harvard gain a reputation, whether they want to or not. One fictional doctor from a no longer running television series failed to get a position at John Hopkins, but this is not the case for Mark Mofid La Jolla. The San Diego plastic surgeon completed his education and continues to make a name for himself in the plastic surgery world. His primary specialty these days is gluteal augmentation. Yes, the doctor specializes in making people’s posteriors appear larger.

Some people may be snickering at the above description, but Doctor Mark Mofid uses some of the proceeds from his Medical spa to fund his continued research. Few of his clients leave his office disappointed. San Diego residents go to his office because of his compassionate care and his attention to detail.

The attention to detail that brings so many patients to him also serves him well in his scientific research. Mark Mofid examines the detail from every angle, but that only is not enough to enable scientific progress. describes him as being willing to think outside the box. An ability to think outside the box has caused many great scientific advancements, including the founding of genetics and the discovery of general relativity.

Plastic surgeon Mark Mofid spent over eight years working on this procedure. The implants are similar to those used in breast enhancement surgeries, although a slightly different material is used. Few people want to increase the cup size of their buttocks region and the implants do not do this. The people who undergo this procedure usually need extra support in the area to help reduce pain. Some people choose to undergo this surgery for cosmetic reasons, but this is not common. He works on improving the implants to be more compatible with the human body structure. Past versions of the implants suffered from many problems.
