Male Plastic Surgery
As men often have different cosmetic needs and desires than women do, Miami Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Rian Maercks performs cosmetic procedures tailored to men's needs—procedures which are designed to attain a refined, masculine result. Though he offers similar procedures to women, such as a facelift, the techniques Dr. Maercks employs when performing them on men often provide a different, though equally aesthetically pleasing result. Additionally, Dr. Maercks performs procedures that directly cater to creating a more masculine silhouette, like male breast reduction surgery, the goal of which is to remove troublesome excess breast tissue on men.
Male breast reduction is for men who struggle with excess fat and breast tissue that cannot be reduced through diet and exercise, but must be removed surgically. The doctor uses liposuction and excision techniques to remove the excess tissue.
Pectoral implant surgery is designed for men who wish to enhance the shape and contour of their chest but cannot achieve their goals through weight lifting.
Calf augmentation (or calf implants) is an option for patients who want to enhance the shape of the lower leg. The surgery may be performed for cosmetic enhancement or to correct a shrunken lower leg.
Liposuction is a method for slimming specific areas of the body. The surgery is ideal for patients who exercise and eat a healthy diet, but still struggle to eradicate fat deposits in certain areas
By restructuring the deep tissues or the face, the facelift can restore a youthful, beautiful and natural appearance to the face. Secondarily, wrinkles are reduced and folds and sagging skin disappear. Studies of this procedure have found that a facelift can make one appear, on average, more than 10 years younger. Closely related goals include improved self-esteem and improved quality of life. Dr. Maercks uses a unique technique, the Musculo-Aponeurotic Elevation Rhytidectomy with Check Kite Support (MAERCKS-lift).
Neck contouring is ideal for patients who are concerned about excess neck fat, loose skin, neck bands, sagging jowls and loss of youthful angularity in the jaw area. These conditions will often hide or obscure the jaw line, which can negatively affect your appearance.
Otoplasty, or ear-pinning surgery, is a common procedure that repositions the ears for a more proportional appearance. The plastic surgeon reshapes the ear cartilage to improve its position, typically pinning the ear back so it protrudes more naturally.
