dr rian a maercksRian A. Maercks M.D. is an artist and a leading aesthetic, craniofacial and reconstructive plastic surgeon licensed both in Florida and by the State of New York. The surgeon’s revolutionary approaches to both surgical and non-invasive aesthetic interventions of the face and body have garnered him international recognition by surgeons and clients alike. A video that can be seen on YouTube of the Miami based doctor injecting 35 syringes of dermal filler into his own face serves as tangible evidence of faith in his own technique.

The trained medical scientist earned his degrees from Duke University School of Medicine.  Maercks’ undergraduate training in fine arts and philosophy created the framework through which he explored the world of medicine and plastic surgery which has allowed him to elevate the standard of patient care and safety as the medical director at his high-profile Miami based surgical center.

Following an integrated plastic and reconstructive surgery residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, a top ranked U.S. craniofacial pediatric center, and the University of Cincinnati Hospital, Maercks completed fellowship training in Europe, Central and South America with some of the most prominent figures in plastic surgery to date. This extensive training included an elite fellowship with the esteemed craniofacial pioneer Dr. Fernando Oritz-Monasterio bandmasters of craniofacial andaesthetic surgery of the face and breast.  He continues to stay connected internationally with other leaders in his field and travels internationally to discuss ideas and innovations such as sex reassignment surgery training at Helsinki Hospital in Finland AND AT vu Medical Center in The Netherlands.

Maercks has become a global force in aesthetic plastic surgery and has been recognized as such by the International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in 2014 and 2016 for his ideas and innovations.  Combining art,aesthetic sensibilities and knowledge of anatomy Maercks has developed the incredible aesthetic innovations such as Aesthetic Facial Balancing© and Cold Sub-Fascial Breast Augmentation ©Aesthetic Facial Balancing involves using the body’s own fat or volumes of fillers that are thought to be excessive by mainstream practitioners to rejuvenate the aging face. The most natural looking approach to breast augmentation, Cold Sub-Fascial Breast Augmentation ©, is a novel technique providing supported long term control of breast shape and aesthetic appearance. Maercks’ expertise in natural aesthetics; however, is not limited by gender or body part. He has designed several methods of developing natural and masculine results for his male clientele as well and is recognized for helping the transgender community with facial masculinization andfeminization.  Maercks also has developed aesthetic and augmentative techniques for male and female genitalia.
