There are a number of reasons why someone might consider getting, or follow through with getting plastic surgery. For some, parts of their body prevent them for being able to live a fulfilled life. For others, their body is their job and they need to keep with the trends in order to make a living. But, for so many, there’s the need for injury repair – often after other surgeries have gone awry, illnesses have taken hold, or accidents have lead to permanent damage. Dr. Mark Mofid runs a practice in the San Diego and La Jolla Area, assisting his patients in all of the above. Often times, he goes above and beyond to service the needs of his patients, his practice, and plastic surgery as an industry all together.
How does a surgeon go above and beyond for their job and industry? Dr. Mark Mofid has not only performed dozens and dozens of surgeries, but he’s conducted a number of studies to further technique as well as motivations behind cultural standards. When you understand what motivates your patient, you understand what their expected outcome of the procedure is and can adhere to their needs more accurately.
To more accurately depict the perfect silhouette for his clients, Dr. Mark Mofid conducted a study to compare all Playboy centerfolds from 1953 to 2012. What he discovered was nearly all had a 0.68 waist-to-hip ratio, regardless of their BMI or weight. Dr. Mark Mofid decided that this seemed to be the “aesthetic ideal” and applied this to his work ethic, creating a more desirable silhouette for his patients and being able to more accurately guide his patients to what they want.
On top of studies, Dr. Mark Mofid has designed his very own implant that he is able to shape both before and during procedures. This increases probability of a smoother and seamless insertion of the implant and a more desirable shape as well.
Not many doctors, let alone surgeons, are willing to put as much care into their patients or practice. That’s what makes Mark Mofid a game changer.
