What does cosmetic surgery mean to you? For some, it means reshaping a part of themselves that is interfering with their daily well being, and for others, it means reshaping past surgeries that have effected their daily health. Regardless of the story behind the action, the patients expect the same outcome – perfection.

Dr. Mark Mofid’s practice is dedicated to not only giving you the perfect service, but the perfect experience as well. To staff at Dr. Mark Mofid’s office in the San Diego and La Jolla area in California, perfection is not just in the office – it’s a lifestyle that is lived through the staff and patients alike.

Dr. Mofid has extensive knowledge and history involving himself in, what is now a rising trend of cosmetic surgeries called gluteal augmentation. Gluteal augmentation is essentially, enhancing your exterior to give you a fuller, more balanced shape. The surgery rose to power in Brazil, which Mofid had currently studied and trained, specifically for gluteal augmentation practices.

For now, gluteal augmentation has risen, and continues to do so to this day and there are many ways to go about the procedure. While most surgeons are placing their implants above the muscle, Dr. Mofid says intramuscular implants are the way to go. When placing the implant within the muscle, you decrease your risk of movement, feeling the muscle and the accumulation of fluid. It is low risk – lower than breast augmentation, and easy to remove.

There are many benefits to the procedure, including a needed confidence boost if this is something that deters you in every day life. Gluteal augmentation, and many other forms of augmentation are transforming both the patients and our culture as perfection in every day life becomes the norm. What used to be an unspoken process, is now out in the open as the movement of self love proceeds to evolve us and move us closer to ultimate refinement and more

 

Eric Lefkofksy Helping Cancer Research With His Startup Tempus

Cancer is a disease that has gradually been becoming an epidemic. Millions of people are affected by it, and more or less, everyone knows someone who has cancer. As per the statistics, 40 percent of the US Population has one or the other kind of cancer. Even though many different types of cancers are curable nowadays, it leaves a profound impact on patients’ lives, physically as well as mentally. One of the core issues as to why cancer therapies are not as effective as they should be even till date is due to the lack of centralized data about cancer treatment and therapies. There is no single venue where one can find all the cancer therapies related data, and this has been one of the leading causes of concern for oncologists for years.

Tempus, a technology firm started by the successful and reputed entrepreneur Eric Lefkofsky, aims to change all that. It is a data analytics and management company that in a way takes into account and collects EHRs as well as other cancer therapies related data. It helps the oncologists and doctors to correlate various cancer-based data to help provide better and more efficient treatment. Tempus collects its cancer therapies related data from hospitals and medical facilities treating cancer. Ideally, such a task would take more than six months to one year when done manually, but with the help of technology, it is done at the click of a button today. Tempus has enabled the oncologist to pinpoint which cancer therapy is suitable for someone and which wouldn’t be effective. It has made it possible for the people to survive and battle cancer with confidence.

Oncologists can take the clinical and molecular data of each patient into account as well when deciding the treatment plan of each patient. It is helping in providing cancer therapy that is highly accurate and is known to have been effective. Eric Lefkofsky rose to fame in the corporate world after starting Groupon. He has started many other companies till date include Lightbank Investments, Echo Global Logistics, Groupon, MediaOcean, and Uptake Technologies. Eric Lefkofsky is also a passionate philanthropist and has a family foundation that is associated with many charities.
