At the present time Doctor Jesús Benito and his team of plastic surgeons at Antiaging Group Barcelona (Spain) are a centre of reference in muscle implants. With more than 20 years experience, they have achieved the best results in enhancing contours using silicone implants and also fatty tissue grafts (the patient’s own fat).
The basic technique is done using implants, although the patient’s own fat is very useful for finishing off the definition and smoothness of the contours. In cases of Poland syndrome (congenital absence of the pectoralis major muscle) the contours can be recreated with only fatty tissue.
The fat is obtained by liposuction from other parts of the patient’s own body. It usually comes from the abdomen, thighs, hips and double chin. Augmentation using the patient’s own fat is a technique which prevents any possible rejection or incompatibility. As it is the patient’s own fat, the result is less harmful to the body.
It is evident that augmentation surgery with the patient’s own fat is contraindicated in thin patients who have no body fat.
Antiaging Group Barcelona is a pioneering centre in Spain in introducing the technique of Dr. Coleman which guarantees the greatest survival of the grafted fat and minimizes the incidence of cysts.
