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.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
