Two procedures that men request of us at the Instituto Pérez de la Romana to improve their body are augmentations of pectoral and gluteal muscles.
WITH PROSTHESIS OR WITH YOUR OWN FAT
Both procedures can be performed using specific silicone prostheses.
Pectoral prostheses are in the thorax introduced through an incision on the side of the axilla and silicone prostheses that resemble the pectoral muscle are inserted.
This technique can also be performed only with fat grafts or lipofilling, using the patient's own fat, where there is enough such as the abdomen and hips. On other occasions a combination of techniques is used, using prostheses (which are not very large) to prevent an artificial appearance and infiltration of fat around the edges of the prosthesis so that it looks much more natural.
GLUTEAL SURGERY: IN EVER-GREATER DEMAND
The same is also true of gluteal surgery, which is in ever-greater demand and consists of the insertion of silicon gluteal prosthesis through an incision in the intergluteal fold. Prostheses are inserted in the gluteal muscle, the aim being to remodel the whole gluteal region. This procedure can also be carried out using lipofilling or as part of a combination with prostheses to improve the appearance of the area being operated on.
WE ALSO THINK ABOUT YOU
At the Instituto Perez de la Romana, we believe that men have the same possibilities as women when it comes to improving certain parts of their face and body, in a constant effort to lift their self-esteem and find happiness.

When will I be able to exercise or go back to the gym?
You can start to do mild exercise one month after the procedure..
