Dr. Mark Mofid is THE BEST! So in love with my new curvy behind! Implantech - round, 275cc. San Diego, CA

My gluteal augmentation with Dr. Mark Mofid is just 2 days away. I was researching different brands of gluteal implants when I came across the instructional video that Dr. Mofid did for Implantech. After seeing the video, there is NO WAY I can have any other surgeon perform this surgery on me. I was blown away by his expertise on the topic and his attention to details during the procedure. ...

Dr. Mofid and his entire team were remarkable. I came to see him shortly after I stopped breastfeeding my daughter.

The full team was supportive of the decisions I made and ensured that I had all the...

52 Years Old Thinking of Butt Implant - San Diego, Ca

I had a facetime consultation today with Dr Mark Mofid and it was an awesome conversation I had with this doctor. I think he really had enough experience with butt augmentation procedure that's why I trusted him to perform this to my body. I hope everything will go well as per plan. So far, his assistance is trying to insert me on his fully book schedule this coming December. Hopefully, I can get the Dec 8 schedule. Butt implant completed Dec 7, 2015, I'm very happy with the result, no complications at all.
