Dating has changed by leaps and bounds since the days of boy meets girl, boy asks girl for a date. With all of the advances in modern technology, and the advent of technical devices, came a new way of dating. They were the dating apps for phones and other devices. Men and women were able to find suitable dates that matched up with their dating profile. This sometimes meant women waiting by the phone for days on someone to call. If you were one of the lucky ones, you heard from someone that was totally out of your range of expectations. This soon became monotomous, until Whitney Wolfe Herd launched a ew app called Bumble.

Bumble was the answer that women needed because it completely turned the dating process around.

With Bumble, it is the man that sits and waits for the woman to call. Women were given a brand new sense of empowerment with the Bumble app. Others could see their profile, but could not reach out to the woman. When Bumble was first launched by Whitney Wolfe Herd, it was created to give women the opportunity to feel at ease in the dating game. The popularity of the app has made the business into a billion dollar company within the three years of it’s existence.

Whitney Wolfe Herd found her niche with Bumble. The woman had to be the one to message the man first. This allowed women to feel confident in themselves, plus, they had the advantage of saying yes or no to any suitor that had no similar interests. This power made the dating industry stand up and take notice of the brain child of Whitney Wolfe Herd. She has been described as being the face of a new, and exciting women’s movement.

Whitney Wolfe was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. She majored in International Studies at Southern Methodist University.

Mark Mofid, the Plastic Surgery Expert

Dr.Mark Mofid, MD, is a plastic surgeon who has carved for himself a name in the field of plastic surgery, especially in gluteal augmentation, as well as other forms of surgery. A board-certified surgeon based in San Diego and La Jolla, Dr Mark Mofid has over time come up with creative and innovative ways to have this surgery performed on his clients with an excellent level of satisfaction and skill.

When he started doing buttock augmentation 11 years ago, Mark Mofid was frustrated by what was then available as implants. Most of these implants were not just right, and in most of his surgeries, he had to perform manually some adjustments on them before he could use them on any operation. He embarked on coming up with innovative ways in which could create new implants, which could do the job well and did not look as fake.

The Harvard and John Hopkins-trained surgeon that he is, did not disappoint and came up with a customised implant for Implantech used to solve a number of the issues that he and other surgeons got faced with in their operations. He offered it to be used by others without demanding royalties on his invention, which reflects on the kind heart and commitment to the profession that Mark Mofid has.

He decided to get his butt augmentation training from none but the best: Raul Gonzalez, MD, one of the most excellent plastic surgeons based in Brazil, the “home of plastic surgery,” and who has vast experience in practice, having conducted his first butt surgery in 1984. The mastery of his teacher is now in the student, and this has manifested in the latter’s practice. For example, in his attempt to come up with a correct silhouette size, he decided to research waist-to-hip ratio of playboy features over the centuries, and this gave him a workable ratio and more

As the accounts of his clients will show, Mark Mofid is committed to giving his clients the highest quality of reconstructive surgeries and combines it with a heart that is affectionate and a gentle personality. With a man of such a profile, any prospective clients can approach him with the confidence that he will give them what they have long desired to have.
