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.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
