40th Birthday Package- Breast Revision, Mini Tummy Tuck and Labiaplasty (MACIE) - Miami, FL

It has been six weeks since I celebrated my 40th Birthday in Miami at the Maercks Institute. I am not sure words can describe how grateful I feel for having found such an incredibly talented Physician who’s passion for his work is equally matched by his deep understanding for the heart of his patients desires and his genuine sincerity for their overall well being.

The driving motivation was a breast revision of my current Saline implants that I had sported for over 16 years. I was also interested in a mini tummy tuck to finally get rid of that pesky little pooch that just didn’t want to vacate, in spite of my very physically active lifestyle. I had many beaches I still wanted to walk and it sure would be nice to walk them with a little more confidence. The last procedure on my wish list was vaginal rejuvenation which had me both fascinated and nervous at the same time.

My research and tireless disappointment with the lack of advancement within the Institution of Cosmetic Surgery is what lead me to Dr. Maercks. I was baffled, having a hard time accepting that after sixteen years, it was suggested that the best placement for my implants had not changed. This was heartbreaking since I was well aware of the trade offs I had spent years living with. I no longer wished to contend with muscle distortion during my workouts or in certain exposed positions in front of my partner. I wanted to be able to feel as touchable lying on my back as I did when I was upright and wasn’t looking forward to experiencing the separation on my chest wall and loss of volume in my upper pole area again. I was not interested in going larger to get the volume I desired and I really had my heart set on more natural shaped breasts with a more supple feel and look and was not willing to consider additional scars for a lift. Doctor after Doctor in City after City in State after State all seemed to be of the same school of thought. I thought am I the only woman who desires something other than cookie cutter implants? Is there anyone out there that actually gets my desire to look feminine? It was clear to me that I was looking for a revolutionary, free thinker who was more interested in advancement and the heart of the patient rather than the status quo.

After stumbling upon the visuals that matched my desired results on the Maercks Institute site I was elated but still cautious. I ultimately decided to select Dr. Rian Maercks, the way I decide life’s most important decisions, based on pure instinct after a thorough investigation of proven facts. In this case there were several case studies available. My findings were that this technique used in conjunction with the anatomical (teardrop) gummy implants was just what I had been longing for. They worked together like yin and yang, eliminating most of the major complications associated with augmentation and tackled the exact tradeoffs that I had spent years being dissatisfied with. It was a relief that there were people actually listening to women and were genuinely interested in progress in the augmented patient's overall satisfaction.
I had decided to choose Dr. Maecks before I ever contacted him but after calling his office, I was certain I was making the right choice. Dr. Maercks called me after 5 P.M. just as his assistant Nicole said he would. This was already miles apart from his counterparts in the industry. We discussed my interests and what I was hoping to achieve in each area. He reviewed in detail his preferred techniques. I let him know about my concerns going into this and how I was not looking for tradeoffs this time around, to include trading a flat belly for a visible scar. He understood and before completely committing to results he had me send him photographs. Then the controversial topic of vaginal rejuvenation came up and he asked the profound question of “why”? I couldn’t be dishonest, this was the icing on the cake for me and it fell into the novelty category. I shared my reasoning and after pausing, he shared his experiences with women seeking his help to reverse the negative alterations they suffered as a result of the tightening and excising procedures. He believed strongly that although these procedures were gaining huge popularity, it was not in the best interest of the patient. He could not, in good conscience, excise or risk nerve damage to an area that was so significant in a women’s design. He went on to explain how vital the role of being able to access intimacy through healthy physiological well being was needed before any enhancement could ever begin to be effective. Being an avid study of human nature and phycology, I knew he was spot on and respected his position. He educated me on his answer to vaginal rejuvenation and added that I might consider a G spot enhancement in lieu of excising or undergoing an incision. I was actually relieved at the end of our conversation because the thought of an incision gone wrong in that area really did make me a little uneasy. In the end, I could still achieve my novelty goal without the risks involved.

A little less than three weeks later my husband and I flew into Miami to celebrate my Birthday in a rather unconventional but still very exciting way. Today it’s been six weeks and a few days post-op and my breasts are simply stunning and feel supple beyond my wildest expectations. My tummy is contoured but still has a soft natural look and the scar placement is better than anything I could have hoped for. I have actually found myself reflecting in amazement with thoughts of ‘wow that’s ingenious!’ As for my vaginal rejuvenation, lets just say it’s off the charts and my husband is a HUGE fan.

I honestly do not believe that there is another Doctor on the planet that could have produced such amazingly beautiful results. Dr. Maercks is undoubtedly a skilled surgeon but it’s his God given talent for artfully bringing everything together in a way that captures the essence of femininity that truly sets him apart. The Maercks Institute is the New Frontier of Cosmetic Surgery where natural shapes and suppleness are finally for sale.
