New Breast Augmentation Technique Published With Striking Similarities To The Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation TM of The Maercks Institute

Share Article

This month in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the seminal scientific journal of plastic surgery, a new breast augmentation technique was published declaring the advantages of "total subfascial placement." Interestingly, Dr. Maercks, who commends this article, has always practiced total subfascial coverage in his groundbreaking "Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation."

Subfascial breast augmentation is extremely contraculture in the United States while internationally many recognize the subfascial plane as superior to all others"

In this months issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery(PRS), a paper was published of a series of patients treated with the novel concept of total subfascial placement instead of the more conventional superior subfascial coverage which mimics a dual plane augmentation sans muscle ( Dr. Maercks, the innovative mind and plastic surgeon behind The Maercks Institute, released statements applauding the paper and applauding Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for publishing it.

"Subfascial breast augmentation is extremely contraculture in the United States while internationally many recognize the subfascial plane as superior to all others" Dr. Maercks explains. Dr. Maercks has long emphasized the differences in his aesthetic breast surgery results and attributes them to the technique he developed, the Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation. "The Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation is my baby, and I am very proud of it. It was a very exciting moment for me when I was reviewing the white journal days ago and I discovered an article from half way across the world that argued similar tenants to my own. I have always argued that subfascial breast augmentation surgery has to be done under direct visualization and the surgeon must sharply dissect undamaged and complete fascia all the way down to the based of the implant pocket. While the authors of the paper are not using cold technique, their ideas are otherwise very similar to mine."

Dr. Maercks hopes that one day his technique will become more widespread. The major differences that make Dr. Maercks unwilling to perform submuscular or dual-plane augmentations are the widely splayed apart artificial appearance, the abrupt implant edge visibility superiorly and the wild appearing movement of the implant every time arms are moved or the chest muscle is flexed called muscle animation or muscle jumping. With his technique in the subfascial plane there is widespread international agreement that these issues are minimized or erradicated. With the publication of this recent study it looks like Dr. Maercks and his Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation may be ripe for equal widespread acceptance home in the United States.

Whether this paper spurs along American awareness of these unique techniques and their advantages, international patients, domestic celebrities and those "in the know" are swarming to receive the beautiful natural appearing results that Dr. Maercks and the few enlightened plastic surgeons of the world deliver. Currently The Maercks Institute is the only center offering the Cold-Subfascial Breasst Augmentation. This innovative doctor strongly believes that his technique will be adopted by many in the near future with the further publication of his techniique, aesthetic concepts and clinical series.
