The Maercks Institute Offers Form Stable "Gummy Bear" Implants with Revolutionary Transaxillary Cold-Subfascial Breast Augmentation® with Placement Through the Armpit

Miami plastic surgeon Rian A. Maercks M.D. offers patients the best of both worlds by using the best form stable silicone implant technology and trsnsaxillary armpit placement resulting in a scarless, more natural looking breast

MIAMI, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients considering breast augmentation are becoming more and more educated in regards to their choices. Awareness is growing to the clear benefit of high quality form stable "gummy bear" implants in an anatomically more natural shape. In the past, techniques that leave no scars on the breast such as the transaxillary (through the armpit approach) were reserved for easy to place lower quality saline implants. Former thought was that placing large silicone filled implants through a transaxillary incision was impossible. Few surgeons offered silicone transaxillary placement because of the difficulty. The newest generation of FDA approved implants present even greater difficulty, they retain their shape and are more difficult to place through small incisions. It is widely considered not possible to place these implants efficaciously in such a manner.

Interestingly, one practice has offered highly cohesive form stable anatomically shaped implants exclusively through an armpit transaxillary incision since the day they were reapproved in the United States. Dr. Rian A. Maercks of The Maercks Institute has always preferred transaxillary approach and never places saline implants in his practice. "I don't see any compelling reason to place a scar on the breast in an aesthetic intervention unless very significant nipple lifting is required. I have always placed silicone implants through transaxillary access and my international experience with the higher quality form stable implants made it a smooth transition once they were reapproved stateside," Maercks explains (www.RianMaercksMD.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yX_r-7yIZOY). Three companies now provide form stable anatomically shaped implants, Allergan Natrelle 410, Sientra and Mentor.

Today Dr. Maercks uses exclusively form stable implants in his practice primarily for the improved safety profile and secondarily 'for the aesthetic advantages.' The technique Dr. Maercks has developed is called Cold-Subfascial Breast AugmentationR and combined with these special implants he is able to deliver breathtaking results that appear a natural form without unnatural separation or an "augmented look." Luckily for the educated patient looking for the best of all worlds, implant technique and scar placement, The Maercks Institute is meeting these needs and delivering exceptional results. Dr. Maercks provides limited exclusive consultations at The Maercks Institute 4500 Biscayne Boulevard Suite 104, Miami, FL 33137. For out of town and international patients Dr. Maercks offers e-consultations with complete photo evaluation and surgical planning. All consultations can be arranged by calling 305.328.8256 or email.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

The cloud competition for database hosts is fierce. How do you evaluate a cloud provider for your database platform? In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Chris Presley, a Solutions Architect at Pythian, gave users a checklist of considerations when choosing a provider.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
