MIAMI, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of expertise and interest in delivering the most innovative aesthetically superior treatment options, Dr. Rian A. Maercks has been appointed to the elite Allergan ASCENT advisory board of the top 25 leaders in plastic surgery in the U.S.
The Maercks Institute Miami was founded by the innovative spirit of Dr. Rian A. Maercks M.D., a globally recognized plastic surgeon with elite training lineage. This week The Maercks Institute announced that Dr. Maercks has accepted an appointment to the ASCENT National Advisory Panel in Plastic Surgery. The panel is made up of the top 25 leaders in innovative plastic surgery in the United States. Selection for these esteemed positions is based on thought leadership, expertise and aesthetically superior treatments.
Interest in Dr. Maercks' work stemmed largely from his radically unique concepts of breast aesthetics and breast augmentation surgery. During Maercks' original conservative plastic surgery training, he found aesthetic breast surgery very disappointing. "The dual-plane technique that is considered the standard of care in this country unnecessarily creates distorting muscular forces that create a very unnatural appearance with wide separation of the breasts, low positioning and animation or muscle jumping. I knew there had to be a better way and was very excited when I heard the Brazilian surgeon Dr. Ruth Graf speak about the subfascial plane and the superior aesthetic results that she delivered early in my training." After completing an elite international craniofacial and aesthetic surgery fellowship, Maercks completed a mini fellowship with Dr. Graf and returned stateside to incorporate what he learned into a novel technique that he calls the "Cold-Subfascial Breast AugmentationR."
The concept of the Cold-Subfascial technique is to preserve the structural fascia completely without damage to actually shape the breast with a smooth natural contour. Maercks is also one of the only surgeons that incorporated form stable "gummy bear" implants into a scarless transaxillary approach. The immediate successful clinical results drew national and international interest immediately. Multiple industry experts have since visited Dr. Maercks in his private operatory at The Maercks Institute to see firsthand how his breathtakingly different results are produced.
Similarly Dr. Maercks introduced a new concept to the world of facial aesthetics, that of "Aesthetic Facial Balancing." Aesthetic Facial Balancing is a concept of restoring harmony and thus the appearance of beauty and youth through the artful placement of volume using hyaluronic acid products or the body's own fat. Maercks is well known for using volumes of fill that greatly exceed common practices but deliver stunning results without sign of intervention.
Dr. Maercks has several other innovative techniques in different realms of plastic surgery and holds many pending patents. His innovative spirit, track record of excellence and dedication to constant improvement make him a very deserving recipient of the current honor and an asset to the board.
Dr. Maercks' unique treatments are available only at The Maercks Institute Miami, 4500 Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 104, Miami, FL 33137. Exclusive private consultations are scheduled by calling 305.328.8256 or emailing [email protected].
