Bio

<h2> </h2> <img width="165" alt="Dr Rian Maercks - Miami Plastic Surgeon" src="http://www.rianmaercksmd.com/images/stories/maercks.jpg"> 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 reconstructive microsurgery. 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. <h2>The Practice Philosophy of Maercks Institute</h2> <img alt="Rian Maercks MD - Miami FL" src="http://www.rianmaercksmd.com/images/mission1-th.jpg" title="Image: http://www.rianmaercksmd.com/images/mission1-th.jpg">Whether Dr. Maercks is administering Botox neuromodulation and fillers, rejuvenating a face with unique thoughtful techniques or creating a new face, breast or body in complex reconstruction, his dedication, insight and passion for his <strong>plastic surgery FL</strong> work shines through.
