For the every day man and woman, plastic surgery isn’t something within our budget or on our list of needs, but throughout the years cosmetic and plastic surgery is something that has become more accessible and less taboo. Our cultural needs are changing, and as something we’ve known of for so long becomes more attainable – there are so many questions we still need answers to. Plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Mofid, M.D., is a surgeon who is both attainable, and approachable when needing answers to your burning cosmetic surgery questions.
Graduating from Harvard University with a medical degree, and completing training at The Johns Hopkins University – Dr. Mark Mofid is a board certified surgeon based out of the San Diego and La Jolla area. Many clients and colleagues note his easy going nature, and attribute this very feature to his caring aura and approachable character making him the perfect candidate for your cosmetic surgery needs. For many, common questions arise when considering plastic surgery. Are they dangerous procedures? Will the implants last forever? How long is recovery time?
Take gluteal augmentation surgery for example:
“We’ve compared the rates associated with buttock augmentation surgery and breast augmentation surgery over the course of a decade – there are fewer complications associated with gluteal augmentation then there are with breast augmentation.” Mofid notes on an interview on The Wellness Hour. “In the United States, we don’t use gel filled implants.” He continues. “The FDA has approved soft, solid, silicone implants. So, they don’t necessarily wear out. That doesn’t mean that they might not need to be changed out for whatever reason, but they might last 30 years, 40 years, or the lifetime of the patient.”
Regardless of historical stigmas that lay in place of plastic surgery’s past, our culture is entering a new movement of self appreciation. Surgeons such as Dr. Mark Mofid, are creating a new mold and putting the stigma behind us all.
