Miami, Fl (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
This month, Modern Luxury honored a selected group of practitioners to feature as "Miami's leading health and beauty experts" in a special section of the publication MIAMI Magazine. Dr. Rian A. Maercks is in this short list of Miami professionals. This is exciting news for Maercks and the self-named The Maercks Institute. Until recent times, the majority of Maercks' notoriety and patient base has been international, in New York and the West coast (http://digital.modernluxury.com/publication/?i=176534&p=148).
The feature highlights Dr. Maercks' radical, 'outside the box' practices, but this may be litotes. Dr. Maercks' concepts and procedures are so different, it has taken his hometown Miami years to accept. While Maercks' practice has had loyal and appreciative local patients since the opening of his first office, they have been and remain the minority in his practice. The MIAMI Magazine feature calls The Maercks Institute "the international buzz phrase for elite, tailored aesthetic interventions." A day of consults has Maercks treating New York, South and Central Americas, Western Europe, Caribbean Isles and the Far East. His international following has grown so quickly in his early years that Dr. Maercks is by far the youngest plastic surgeon to have a boutique practice of such caliber (http://www.RianMaercksMD.com).
The bizarre disconnect between the world and Miami is difficult to understand, but Miami appears to finally be catching up. The Maercks Institute reports a huge growth in local referrals from other medical doctors as well as a growing Palm Beach and central Miami following. When asked why Miami was slow to embrace his signature style, Dr. Maercks responds, "I am not everyone's plastic surgeon. There is a certain comfort in knowing that the surgery you are going to receive is the same as the majority of the population. I'm commonly asked why other people don't do things the way I do. For these patients, another more conservative surgeon is probably a better choice. The patients that are right for my practice are almost always direct word of mouth referrals, people that are familiar with my results and seek me out from far and near."
This month's well-deserved title as Miami's leading health and beauty experts is certainly a sign of Miami embracing The Maercks Institute. The biggest challenge Dr. Maercks faces with the world's growing demand for his services is keeping The Maercks Institute the meticulous slow paced boutique practice his patients have fallen in love with.
