John Hopkins Educated Plastic Surgeon, Mark Mofid, MD, Performs State of the Art Procedures

Combining the latest body morphing and visualization technologies with the most recent advances in best practice techniques in his field, San Diego-based Dr. Mark Mofid has been helping his patients improve their physiques and self esteem through his plastic surgery practice. Dr. Mark Mofid explains that he has studied the proportions of iconic standards of beauty within our culture, discovering what he describes as an ideal waist to hips ratio of 0.68.

This figure, the golden ratio, is based on the distance between numbers in the sequence discovered by the famous mathematician, Fibonacci. It describes ideal proportions found throughout nature and was known to Renaissance artists who used it to create their famous masterpieces, most famous among those are Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. A graduate magna cum laude from Harvard University, Dr. Mark Mofid went on to earn his medical degree and study surgery at the prestigious John Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Describing his application of the most modern plastic surgery methods, Dr. Mofid relates how during his University training, the prevailing philosophy was to remove skin, muscle and fat liberally. Dr. Mofid states that this is no longer the case. The modern approaches focus on repositioning rather than removal, a procedure that produces longer lasting results, fewer issues and higher levels of patient satisfaction.

One of the pioneers in publishing on cosmetic breast procedures, Dr. Mark Mofid implements procedures in his practice based upon latest synthetic mesh, bioinductable technologies. These newer resorbable, non tissue-based meshes have broader applications in breast surgeries and hernia repair and they have fewer side effects than their predecessors, which required followup monitoring by the physician.

Gluteal implants, a procedure frequently requested of Dr. Mofid, provides him with an opportunity to bring patients into the decision making process and increase their medical and aesthetics understanding simultaneously. There have been occasions, Dr. Mark Mofid relates, when patients have requested procedures that would go beyond what he would feel comfortable performing. In these cases, Dr. Mofid shares his industry respected judgment and refuses to overdo implants with too large of a size, even when patients attempt to pressure him to do so. This approach has helped Dr. Mofid build his industry reputation as “contemplative, conservative and confident” in his medical advice and the procedures he performs.

Doe Deere – article recap

Known as the Queen of Unicorns, Doe Deere is the founder of the vegan beauty line, Lime Crime. The Russian-born beauty mogul spent her childhood in her home country before traveling to the United States at the tender age of 17 where she eventually started her own makeup and hair product line.


An entrepreneur and trend-setter since the age of 13, Deere’s first business was in selling temporary tattoos to her classmates. She convinced them that it was okay to wear temporary tattoos if that’s what they desired to do.


As a child, Deere dreamed of becoming a musician. The now Los Angeles resident did just that when she moved to New York City. She spent 14 years of her life in New York and now associates her New York years with life being in a band. When she was a musician, people would come out and attend her events. She saw that people were supporting her and appreciated their support, learning at that time to appreciate the support of others no matter what business she was working to build.


Deere has always loved bright colors. She would search for them, but she never found the bright, eye-popping colors she was seeking so hard to find. That was during an era when nude and skin-toned hues, such as beige lip stick, were popular. If Deere wanted boldness, she would have to create it, herself.


And that’s exactly what she did. Since she couldn’t find the shades she wanted anywhere, she made her own. Like the tattoos that she was bold enough to believe in and sell at age 13, she was successful in selling her makeup products.


Because of the look of the makeup as well as her confidence in it, women and girls began purchasing her products. Deere was surprised when other women started gravitating towards her makeup line, but the business became a success, and the company became profitable.


Doe says that makeup gives her the freedom to express herself and she hopes that it does the same for all of the other women who use Lime Crime products. Learn more:
