Developed by Dr. Rian A. Maercks, the procedure will be introduced to the prestigious congress on aesthetic plastic surgery in Rio de Janeiro this September

MIAMI, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Four years after announcing the use of a novel breast augmentation technique in his practice, Dr. Rian A. Maercks M.D. of The Maercks Institute Miami is receiving increased international exposure and recognition. The technique, named the Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation, was envisioned by Maercks to overcome the unnatural and adverse results common in conventional breast augmentation procedures. Dr. Maercks' unique pervasive philosophy is focused on avoiding an augmented or operated look in all procedures and led to his personal disappointment with mainstream breast augmentation. "I never felt it was appropriate to create an artificial 'bolted on' appearance of widely separated jumping firm balls in lieu of breasts. If I was going to place an implant, it would have to replicate nature at its finest ( )."

The Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation was the obvious solution to Maercks after he completed his international fellowships with a veritable who's who of excellence in plastic surgery. One of Dr. Maercks' mentors, Dr. Ruth Graf, had long been a proponent of the subfascial plane, a location very distinct from the common "above the muscle" and "under the muscle " techniques. "The pectoral fascia can be very powerful in shaping and controlling outcomes in the augmented breast if used appropriately and intelligently." Dr. Maercks used his vast experience to refine the procedure in his own hands using the novel cold fascial dissection method that allows a completely intact undamaged fascia to be draped over the implant, shaping and blending it with the patient's form ( ).

As both domestic and international popularity has risen, industry has taken interest. Allergan, the largest aesthetics company in the United States, recently elected Dr. Maercks to their advisory bard in plastic surgery because of this work and just this week, Maercks received an invitation to present the Cold-Subfascial technique and results to the prestigious biennial International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery congress in Rio de Janeiro this September. The Maercks Institute reports that this is wonderful news as it may lead to he lacking mainstream acceptance of this revolutionary technique and its incredible aesthetic offerings ( ). A full clinical publication of this work is expected to be in print late this year.

Dr. Rian A. Maercks conducts exclusive private consultations at The Maercks Institute Miami, 4500 Biscayne Boulevard Suite 104, Miami Fl 33137 just outside Miami's exciting design district. Consultation requests and contacts can be directed to 305.328-8256 or email.
