Dr. Rian Maercks has a unique philosophy that he applies to his
practice and incorporates into every procedure he performs,
'histiocentricity,' strictly defined tissue centered or tissue focused.
What this means is precise surgery maintaining minimal tissue
invasiveness with thoughtful design to maximize results and minimize
swelling, complications and recovery. Using this principle he has
designed radically new techniques in the subspecialties of facial
aesthetics, breast aesthetics, craniofacial reconstructive surgery and
The MAERCKS-lift, for example, is a face lift based on the principles
of many of Dr. Maercks’ mentors including Dr. James Stuzin, Dr.
Fernando Ortiz-Monasterio, Dr. Fernando Molina and others, but modified
with a histiocentric approach. The SMAS, a deep structural layer that
defines and supports the face is not completely elevated. The entire
blood supply is maintained but through three thoughtfully designed
vectors (directions of pull) the natural aesthetically beautiful
convexities and concavities of the face are created in their
aesthetically ideal locations.
This means there is no need to pull on the skin, creating the
unnatural stretched appearance that has become stigmata of a facelift in
today’s media. A naturally beautiful deep structure is overlayed by
relaxed redraped skin with no tension and subtle positional differences.
Even the incisions are hidden and placed so the stigmata of
face-lifting (abnormal skin folds, ear deformities, hairline
displacement and scars in the hair bearing scalp) are not evident.The Practice Philosophy of Maercks Institute
