Miami, Fl (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
Dr. Maercks in his elite private practice, The Maercks Institute, is a well known innovator in the field of plastic surgery. In the world of breast augmentation, he has developed a distinctly unique technique and style. Dr. Maercks is known to have a style of natural appearing breast augmentations that separates his practice from those offering the common "augmented look." While Dr. Maercks attributes his stunning results to the technique 'Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation,' he reports that the recent increase in options for implant selection furthers his ability to sculpt the perfect breast for the individual patient.
The Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation™ is a technique that provides a special kind of support and shaping that is not possible in commonly used techniques. By combining this technically demanding shaping procedure with low profile implants, Dr. Maercks created breast shapes that are rarely seen in augmentation early in his career. "All plastic surgeons are taught to use high profile implants which leads to a narrow based and ball like or tubular projecting breast. This never made sense to me. A plastic surgeons goal should be to create beautiful normal human form not something aberrant. I learned of the subfascial plane early in my training through the work of Dr. Ruth Graf and it immediately made sense to me. I tweaked this procedure by preserving all of the fascia and started using low profile implants lacking shape and creating a projecting shape through fascial sculpting." Dr. Maercks Immediately adopted Sientra's form stable anatomic implants when the FDA cleared them last year and has been very pleased with the breast shapes he has achieved.
Just over a week ago Allergan received FDA clearance to sell their anatomic form stable implants and Dr. Maercks was immediately certified on the use of these devices. "The Allergan product appears to be more cohesive and have much more form stability which is exciting. The best part is that for the first time ever we have evidence that using these implants conveys a 69% reduction in capsular contracture rates for patients." Dr. Maercks reports. Eager to convey these benefits to his patients Dr. Maercks is incorporating these implants into his Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation. "Time will tell but thus far it looks like creating the most beautiful shaped breast with the best technique and device may convey additional long term benefit to my patients. This is exciting."
Dr. Maercks is currently offering the natural appearing Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation with multiple implant options at The Maercks Institute in Miami's design district for patients throughout the country and world.
