THE PROFESSIONAL CAREER OF DR. PÉREZ DE LA ROMANA

Federico Pérez de la Romana, a native of Alicante who holds a bachelors’ degree in medicine and is a specialist in cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, was awarded a scholarship and continued his studies in plastic surgery and aesthetics at the University of California and at the university hospitals of San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco in 1978/1980.

In 1975, he began to work as a plastic surgeon at the Hospital La Paz in Madrid. He completed his PhD in breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, making him a pioneer in breast reconstructive surgery and, from that point onwards, spent most of his career in breast reconstructive surgery, dominating all aspects of this field.

In 1978, Dr. Pérez de la Romana opened the Clínica Almagro for plastic and cosmetic surgery in Madrid, a national point of reference in this area of specialisation. In 2005, he designed and created the Instituto Pérez de la Romana de Cirugía Plástica y Estética in Alicante, the sole establishment that specialises in this area on the Mediterranean coast. It is equipped with the latest technology and has the most prominent specialists in the fields of cosmetic surgery, cosmetic medicine, aesthetic gynecology and obesity. At present, the doctor directs and engages in operations in their area of expertise there.

The professional career of Dr. Pérez de la Romana has been notable for its innovation and application of the most revolutionary techniques, due to his membership of US societies and his collaboration with the most prestigious specialists in the United States.

The achievements of Dr. Pérez de la Romana include:

In 1980, he established the first breast reconstruction unit in Spain, in Hospital La Paz in Madrid. After completing his PhD on this specialisation, Dr. Pérez de la Romana became a pioneer in breast reconstruction cosmetic breast surgery techniques. Furthermore, his collaboration with US professors John Tebbetts and Patrick Maxwell, breast surgery experts and the designers of breast prostheses, made him one of the most knowledgeable experts in the field of breast augmentation and the use of breast prostheses of the latest generation.

Doctor Pérez de la Romana has trained with Doctors Aston and Baker in New York, Gordon and Stutzin in Miami, attending annual symposiums organised by them on facial rejuvenation. Also of note is his collaboration with New York academic Dr. Glenn Jelks, the world’s leading practitioner in eyelid rejuvenation. Doctor Pérez de la Romana brings this knowledge together, performing facelifts and blepharoplasty and inserting fat, achieving the most up-to-date and complete results. Currently the Doctor maintains the relationship with Dr Aston, Dr. Baker and Dr. Marten, who are considered to be the top specialists in face rejuvenation.

Since 1988, when he attended the rhinoplasty symposium in Dallas (the world’s most recognised symposium in this area), Doctor Pérez de la Romana has formed a close relationship with doctors Jack P. Gunter and Steve Byrd, the creators of this symposium, with whom he collaborates to this day. All of this has made him an expert on rhinoplasty. At present the Doctor belongs to the Rhinoplasty Society of Europe and attends annual professional courses of Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty, hold in Bergamo and Istambul.

In 1998 Doctor took an interest in the problem of morbid obesity. He learned from Dr. Lockwood and his disciple Al Alí the most avant-garde techniques of body remodelling.

In 2005, a new professional unit was created in the clinic, aimed at the personalized treatment of obesity. In this therapy, the centre is also a pioneer in Spain, because it combines bariatric surgery and treatments for obesity and subsequent body remodelling after a great weight loss. Every year the Pérez de la Romana Institute organizes a training course for young plastic surgeons on this new speciality.

Pérez de la Romana furthered his studies as a specialist of cosmetic and reparatory surgery at the universities of San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco in the specialisation of reconstructive microsurgery under Dr. Harry Buncke, which later led to the first 15 limb reattachments in Spain.
