Acclaimed Miami-based plastic surgeon, Dr. Rian Maercks, has carved out his niche within the world of plastic surgery. With an innovative outlook stimulated by his elite international training, Maercks focused on forging cutting-edge techniques that deliver the most natural-looking results for his clientele. The Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation, the most natural appearing breast augmentation, creates soft feminine curves and true upper pole fullness that is extremely rare in augmented breasts. In response to the trending facial fillers craze, Dr. Maercks developed the concept of aesthetic facial balancing. His pioneering technique uses hyaluronic acid injections at large volumes to create unparalleled lifting results with harmonized natural appearing beauty.
In addition to the all-important medical aspect of the surgeries, Dr. Maercks sees his work as an art form. Each patient’s face acts as a portrait for him to create what he calls “aesthetically balanced beauty.” He aims to restore the shapes, the space, and also the negative spaces that affect the aesthetic perception of the face. Dr. Maercks ignores the standard procedure of only focusing on wrinkles and instead, works on balancing the entirety of the face. The goal is to produce lasting results that evoke a more youthful, healthier and happier version of the client’s own face.
Dr. Maercks describes his patients as an extension of family. “I enjoy getting to know exactly who my patients are as people and watching them transform with each intervention,” explains Dr. Maercks. He emphasizes that each client receives a “ visualized tailored intervention” where he gives undivided attention to detail for optimal results. Every client undergoes a bespoke treatment accounting for each individual’s features ethnicity and sex. Dr. Maercks explains “I balance each patient’s features to work together in harmony and unlock their individualized beauty.”
To prove to his clients just how confident he is in his work, Dr. Maercks posted a YouTube documentary of him working on his own face, injecting 35 milliliters of the hyaluronic acid product Juvederm. Dr. Maercks, now three years later without touchup, appears a decade younger than he did yeas ago. The surprising video reveals an incred- ible approach to rewinding the hands of time.
Dr. Maercks is a graduate of the prestigious Duke University Medical School. His undergraduate training encompassed fine art, aesthetic perception, psychology, and philosophy stateside and in England, culminating in a Bachelors Degree in Philosophy. Following comprehensive training in Plastic and reconstructive surgery, he completed craniofacial and aesthetic fellowships with modern masters in Mexico, France, and Brazil. His strong eye for the arts along with his incredible training have helped earn him the title of “Miami’s Aesthetic Superlative.”
