In order to become very skilled at buttock augmentation he went to Brazil where they perform far more of these types of surgeries than they do in America. In specific he took an extended trip to Ribeirao Preto where Raul Gonzalez, MD, practices and is considered by many to be one of the foremost experts on this type of surgical procedure.
Dr. Mark Mofid says that this type of surgery is misunderstood by many in the United States. He advocates for this type of surgery to both his peers and the public at large. The most common reason someone wants this type of surgery performed, he has said, is because many women want to return to their pre-pregnancy bodies including their posterior. He says that it’s often an uphill fight because this type of surgery gets a lot more bad press than good, however, he says he’s looking to change the perception because so many women could benefit from it.
