Dr. Mark Mofid Invests in Safe Plastic Surgery

Tummy tucks. Rhinoplasty.Breast augmentation. These are just a few of the popular procedures that board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Mofid specializes in, but he is especially known for his groundbreaking research and leadership in providing safe butt lift procedures.

The “Brazilian butt lift” is a cosmetic procedure that’s gained popularity stateside, but it’s also led to patient mortality. Dr. Mark Mofid is concerned about the rise in patient deaths that’s accompanied this popular procedure. According to a survey conducted by the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF), the Brazilian butt lift is up to 20 times more risky than any other cosmetic procedure. This prompted Dr. Mofid to take action.

Together with ASERF, he formed a task force to investigate the risks surrounding the Brazilian butt lift, so more surgeons can be aware of this issue. The findings were released to plastic surgeons worldwide in 2016, and published as part of a larger report in the July 2017 issue of the Aesthetic Surgery Journal.

Dr. Mark Mofid invests in performing safe butt lift procedures for his patients. Risks increase when fat is injected too close to the skin, so Dr. Mofid designed a buttock implant for Implantech that is easier to position between muscles. This also creates a more natural-looking result. And, despite patient requests, he will never go bigger than 330 cc. He explains that this is because larger implants invite more complications.

“Large implants have higher risks of… malposition,” he said in a January 2014 interview with Plastic Surgery Practice. Women seek butt lifts for a variety of reasons. When a plastic surgery candidate comes in for a consultation, Dr. Mark Mofid takes the time to discuss their needs and desired outcomes. Two of the most common reasons women seek a butt lift, Dr. Mofid notes, is to create a curvier, more feminine figure, or to recreate a firmer and more youthful silhouette after having children.

Dr. Mofid is an experienced and fully qualified plastic surgeon. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard and completed his medical training at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
