After completing his undergraduate studies successfully at Harvard University where he graduated with a medical degree, Dr.Mark Mofid, famous for boosting patients’ esteems with appropriately appealing reconstructive procedures, joined John Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he got certified with Advanced Craniofacial Research. Before earning his spot as an established surgeon, Dr.Mofid obtained his certification from The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Mofid serves as a professor in the clinical division of the University of California and also offers reconstructive surgery to survivors of skin cancer, traumatic facial repairs, and breast cancer. His scholarly writing on various cosmetic procedures has seen him published in reputable journals like ‘Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’, giving him a presentation platform at different clinical conferences within and outside the U.S.
Mark Mofid knew he wanted to pursue a career in reconstructive and plastic surgery when he saw first-hand how significantly a patient’s esteem got boosted. Saying he receives referrals from previous happy patients, he adds that his career makes him good money primarily because he is well known for being meticulous in his procedures. According to him, surgery is a calling that requires patience, integrity and self-drive. Giving an example of when he turned down his long-time patient’s request to have her implants enlarged, he says such a career requires a high standard of work ethics, putting the patients’ health before money. Dr.Mark Mofid is committed to innovation and says he would like to give hope to cancer survivors, adding that he’d like them to know there is hope in the future, thanks to the innovative technologies he and his team members are about to adopt.
Advising that a good plastic and reconstructive surgeon ought to be realistic, Dr. Mark Mofid urges patients to ensure that the targeted surgeon has certifications from the American Board of Plastic Surgery. The most inspiring business book to him is Simon Sinek’s ‘Leaders Eat Last’ which addresses the importance of teamwork, echoing his view that a patient will either live or die in the hospital depending upon the level of cooperation.
