The soul of IM CLINIC, Dr Ivan Mañero is one of the most highly reputed aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons outside Europe. With extensive experience and training in some of the leading hospitals in the United States, Brazil, the United Kingdom and Spain, he has become an indispensable authority on plastic, genital and gender surgery.
Member of SECPRE and the Global Network of the University of Alabama in Birmingham, among other professional associations, he is an assiduous collaborator with the media as a result of his ability to clearly and simply communicate the more human side of aesthetic surgery.
Since 2009, Ivan Mañero M.D was in charge of organizing and creating the new surgical protocols of the Gender Disorders Unit of Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, where he was director and taught to the medical team.
Ivan Mañero MD defines himself as a perfectionist, who strives to achieve naturalness and beauty as the result of every intervention, every treatment... in short, he wants to bring out the unique beauty of every patient.
A pioneer in his field, he has never ceased to innovate or to seek out new techniques in order to be able to offer better, more lasting and less invasive results. Further to this, he has always been mindful that, to achieve optimal results, it is important to nurture a trusting relationship with each patient: "personally, I wouldn't enjoy my work without this mutual understanding. Every patient is a world and without understanding them, it's impossible to achieve the results they want."
When asked to define the concept of beauty, he has no hesitation, "beauty is harmony, balance and symmetry. Everybody's beauty is different and a nose that makes one face beautiful may not suit another. Beauty is individual and non-transferable. Understanding this and knowing how to find that balance in each patient is essential to achieving good results."
