MIAMI, Sept. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Maercks Institute, the practice of noteworthy plastic surgeon Rian A. Maercks M.D., had long been an international aesthetic destination for cis and transgender patients alike. Over the years Maercks has been sought out by the transgender population, primarily for facial feminization and Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation. After being asked repeatedly by appreciative patients to incorporate sexual reassignment surgery (SRS) into his practice and seeing the consequences of poorly performed SRS surgery, Dr. Maercks has decided to offer comprehensive care for the transgender population including SRS surgery (www.TheMaercksInstitute.com).
"There is a large unveiling population of transgender people and a demand for complex surgery that will affect the course of these patient's lives. Unfortunately this population is largely marginalized by practitioners with the appropriate skill set and often fall into predatory practices that result in heavy expenditure and disfiguring results," Maercks reports. After discussing the dangers and difficulties transgender patients are exposed to at an elite international congress of plastic surgeons he decided not only that he would but that he must offer SRS. "The issue is that there is no better skill set for sexual reassignment and other challenging transgender surgeries than that of a well-trained plastic surgeon. Myself and many of my international colleagues feel that it is our duty and obligation to offer these services that usually fall into the hands of practitioners with lesser training and experience."
Maercks has a long history or reconstructing faces, breasts and genitals of patients that had been treated by undertrained practitioners. Dr. Maercks arranged visits and sexual reassignment surgeries with the leading plastic surgeons across the globe to discuss challenges and refinements in state of the art sexual reassignment surgery and incorporated true full spectrum transgender care into his practice this year.
The Maercks Institute is currently booking new sexual reassignment patients into limited availability in February and March of 2017 and will continue to preserve a portion of Dr. Maercks' busy schedule for these procedures. The Maercks Institute offers SRS alone or in packages with facial transformation and balancing as well as breast augmentations and chest reshaping.
