BBL Without Brown Filter (For Now) - Miami, FL

I’m 48 years young ;-) and have suffered with sun-damaged skin on my face, neck and chest for many years. I’ve been told by several estheticians that I have rosacea—though not confirmed by a dermatologist, I tend to agree due to the redness and small capillaries I experience. I once had a pre-cancerous lesion removed from my nose, and luckily none since! But as the years fly by, I also notic...

Long Time Visitor, Finally Have a Story to Share - Miami, FL

I have been entertaining the idea of having cosmetic surgery for years. I knew it would be best to wait it out as I was younger and already a full C cup and really loved my body. Thank goodness I did not rush in. Much has changed since I was first considering breast augmentation. I am now 35 years of age and ready to enhance and revitalize what once was. I have had a few consultations with...

Dr. Maercks, The Maercks Institute - Miami, FL

I was referred to Dr. Maercks by a friend of mine who was very pleased with his work. I received HA fillers and I must say, I am elated with the outcome!We have all seen people who look like they have "had work done." So I was always nervous that receiving fillers in high-volume would make me look different. That was not the case with Dr. Maercks. I do not look like I have had any work...

Tuberous Breasts and Aesthetic Augmentation: Small narrow breasts? There is a SOLUTION …

Tuberous breast deformity is a term used by plastic surgeons to describe a constellation of breast findings including a narrow base, large areola, high defined inframammary fold and heniation of breast tissue through the areola. This combination yields an aesthetically unattractive breast that women are frequently embarrassed of and may contribute to lower self confidence. Surgical interventions are commonly sought out by patients with such breast form, but conventional options are not...

Do You Really Want an Augmentation?

With the relatively recent boom in frequency and acceptability of plastic surgery patients and doctors of all kinds seem very eager to augment something whether it be lips, breast, cheeks, buttocks or pretty much anything you can think of. This over-exuberance toward making things bigger has created many plastic surgery nightmares that attract a lot of public attention and give the field a bad name. Breast augmentation is among the most popular cosmetic procedures performed, but is it...

Subfacial Breast Augmentation: What is it?

Most commonly surgeons pick ‘below the muscle’ or ‘above the muscle’ positioning when using breast implants. ‘Above the muscle’ augmentations usually look the most natural initially but quickly age especially when a large size is chosen. Quickly the upper pole of the breast looses volume and becomes a silhouette of the implant, in the lower pole the implant is usually very palpable and with capsular contracture, a ‘rock in a sock appearance’ may result. Implants placed...

The Right Age for Plastic Surgery

A question often posed is “when is the right time for plastic surgery?” In this instance it is of course aesthetic surgery that is being referred to. The short answer is simply there is not one universal “right time.” Aesthetic surgery is an extremely personal decision although becoming more ubiquitous at a younger age day by day. Environmental and cultural factors have led to a higher prevalence of young people interested in treating the first signs of facial aging. If someone...

Is Smart Liposuction really smart?

Heavy spending of industry marketing dollars has caused an evolution of patients to ‘consumers.’ After being flooded with marketing information from the radio, television and magazine editorials patients start to seek out a procedure instead of seeking out a qualified health care professional and the doctor-patient relationship falls out of the equation. This is the perfect setup for disaster. Procedures that are indeed invasive and can have horrible complications are...
