Read reviews for Rian A. Maercks
"I can’t express with words how grateful I am to Dr. Rian Maercks . He saved my life and showed true concern something you don’t see nowadays.
I had gluteal implants in South America when on vacation, it had been almost 2 months from the surgery, then suddenly one day I woke up and had extreme pain on one of the implants. It was swollen and felt hot to the touch and I had fever was dizzy and vomiting. It seemed my blood pressure went so low that I felt like passing out and my condition started deteriorating.
I called several plastic surgeons and explained my case but they all closed their doors at me. They stated that they could not take my case because of insurance purposes since it was a complication to a surgery performed outside the country.
Until I came across Dr. Rian Maercks who was willing to help me, he showed genuine concern from the beginning and an interest to help me. He was honest and told me the implant would most likely need to be removed. However he said if possible would try to save it.
He admitted me to the hospital without wasting any time. I entered as a direct admit through the ER and Dr. Maercks followed up every step of the way. He even gave me his cellular number and told me not to hesitate and call him if I felt worst. He also called me to see how I was doing.
After having a CT scan, lab work and lab results were available Dr. Maercks called me to inform me that the implant would need to be removed the following day at 9:30 am. However thanks to his interest and concern he was constantly calling the hospital to follow up on my condition and noticed I was getting worst. Therefore he showed up approximately at 3:30 am for emergency surgery. He was worried that the infection could start entering my bloodstream that the outcome could be fatal.
Yet when I entered the OR the anesthesiologist refused to administer IV or general anesthesia because I had eaten 4 hours earlier. Dr. Maercks stated that the surgery could not wait because the infection could go into my bloodstream and if that happened the consequences would be devastating . He told me that he would inject me with local anesthesia and that he would remove the implant. I was scared and initially refused. I did not want to be awake during surgery because of a previous traumatizing experience. However Dr. Maercks assured me I was in good hands and that I would not feel any pain not even the anesthesia injections. The confidence he gave me made me accept his proposal.
The Dr. was just wonderful, I did not feel any pain at all and it seemed he had magical hands. I did not feel the implant coming out when Dr. Maercks told me it was out. As soon as that happened he washed and disinfected the area and I immediately felt much better. He knows how to make one feel comfortable and secure and he is such a great humane person who has passion for what he does and is good at it.
I am so thankful to Dr. Rian Maercks that words are not enough to show my gratitude and if it was not for him I would not be writing this review. I been to many plastic surgeons and I never wrote a review before but I feel that people need to be aware that this in an excellent Dr. the type you no longer see these days. I would highly recommend him.
Thank you Dr. Maercks.
"I highly recommend Dr. Maercks - he was highly professional and what great hands - did not feel one pinch and the outcome was exactly what I was looking for. I had done Botox several times in the past but this time I got exactly what I was looking for - a relaxed, fresh look. Thank you again Dr. Maercks. "
"Dr. Rian A. Maercks performed a phallosplasty procedure, and I could not be happier. The method in which he uses with no cutting to your goods, is reassuring since it would not mess with the natural way of my penis working. I can tell you that Dr Maerckss is very personal with his patients and that was also very reassuring.Once I had the procedure done, at first I have to be honest here, the penis looks very swollen and kind of not natural looking, I was very afraid that I would remain in that state, but Dr Maercks advised me that it was mostly swelling and that the body needed to heal. Sure enough in a week, two weeks and so on, My Penis was looking normal and natural except of course with more girth and I actually had something in my pants, which was what I wanted and I now have way more self confidence and my penis is doing great. When erect it also is bigger in size, and it performs awesome, if anybody is worried about performance or how it looks, it works just as before and looks normal. As I stated before initially after the surgery before all the swelling goes down you will probably question yourself if it will stay that way, but trust me the swelling goes away and you are left with Dr Maercks wonderful work. Well worth it, nice office and I was approved for financing in the office too. I recommend if anybody is thinking of having this done to go ahead and consult Dr Maercks. It is totally worth it."
"Let me start by saying WOW DR. MAERCKS YOU ROCK! I have had many different procedures with Dr. Maercks and I am so incredibly happy with my results. I have had my entire face balanced with juvederm. I am so impressed with the results, so subtle and natural. My entire face is now in harmony. I have also had fat grafting to the breasts which has given me shape and the curve I have always wanted plus the added bonus of liposuction and body sculpting to the donor site! It was completely painless and overall a fun experience. Very happy in a bikini now! I have also had skin tightening of the thigh and buttocks area which I love! It made such a huge difference in the quality of my skin and the changes were instant. I look and feel beautiful!! Thank you Dr. Maercks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You're the best :)"
"Dr. Maercks is a great surgeon and meticulous in his taking the time to listen to your concerns and then offering suggestions on what options to take. I trust him completely.
Marie, his assistant, is also a huge asset to his practice. "
"I'm very pleased and happy with the results of my recent procedure, Dr. Maercks is great! He really listens to you and takes the time to explain and answers all of your questions. Love the fact that you are always treated the same since your first visit. "
" I was so fortunate to find myself in the hands of such an artistically talented, caring and highly skilled surgeon. In this city with so many different options, I wouldn't go anywhere else. The more crucial and delicate you needs might be, the more I urge you to seek care from Dr. Maercks. "
"I am very pleased with Dr. Maercks and his staff. The entire experience has been beyond my expectations."
"Overall, my experience with Dr. Maercks has been GREAT! From the moment I walked into Dr. Maercks' office for my consultation, I knew that he'd be the doctor to change my life for ever. He immediately knew exactly what I wanted without me even saying much. 3 hours of work by Dr. Maercks has changed my entire life. He was extremely attentive since the moment I left the hospital after my surgery, during my recovery process (when a patient needs their doctor the most). I feel extremely comfortable with Dr. Maercks and would not think twice about undergoing any other cosmetic procedure with him in the future. His work was so miraculous that after two weeks, when I went for my post surgery check up I told him that I was concerned because I felt a lump on my hip that I've never felt before, He begins to laugh and responds "Sweetie, that's your bone!". In conclusion I'd just have to say that I'm glad I chose Dr. Maercks as my surgeon and will recommend him to anyone with my eyes closed."
"This was my first time being injected with Botox and/or a filler (Juvederm XC) and I'm thrilled with my results! I will not allow anyone else to touch my face with a needle....and for the record I hate needles. If you think all "injectors" are created equal, you are mistaken! And I beg you to read this before you decide to get injected. If you think you can go to the cheapest deal in town, you will be disappointed or you will never know how good you really can look with injectables. My friends and family are envious of my results. Some physicans tell their patients they use Botox, but they're using another product. It's crazy out there, so listen up!
I came to Dr. Maercks' with the intention to have him improve lines on my forehead, crow's feet, and a run-away line extending from under my eye whenever I smile. Before meeting Dr. Maercks, I spoke to and researched many other injectors in the area regarding my imperfections I was looking to improve. I'm in my 30's so it was important to me that I receive a natural look....I didn't want to loose my unique facial expressions and didn't want to look "overly" done with that plastic look you see often in Miami. I wanted to look fresh and stay on top of my early signs of aging. I chose Dr. Maercks to be my life-time injector because he was the only one who discussed with me the "art" of injecting. Honestly, I thought any physican could iron out a line or add a little fill to needed areas....especially after talking to so many doctors. The combination of Dr. Maercks' artistic eye and ability, his knowledge and experience as a plastic surgeon (knowing first hand the true functions of muscle, skin, and nerves since he touches all of them in surgery), and his passion for the work he does is what makes Dr. Maercks different from everyone else.
Dr. Maercks listened to my concerns and expectations. Afterwards he made me look in a mirror, with him behind me, and asked me to point out the areas I was talking about. While I had a mirror in front of me, I went on to describe how my lips are little and thin but I wasn't interested in big overdone Miami lips....also talked about my big nose....and how I needed an eyebrow wax because I was loosing my arch. Dr. Maercks then told me how he could add volume to my lips for a natural yet sexy look, make my nose look smaller and more proportional to my face structure (without getting a nose job), and how he can give me an eyebrow arch without wax. He also noticed my cheeks were very thin. I shared with him that I lost some weight which caused that sucked-in cheek look. Dr. Maercks went into full details about how he could improve all the above with Botox and Juvederm. The one thing I was very nervous about were my lips! I told him I would hate my lips if he injected them because I didn't think injected lips could look natural....but his knowledge made me trust him.
I was in for the ride and allowed him to go to work.
Think of Dr. Maercks as the Thomas Kinkade of plastic surgeons. He improved my imperfections using Botox and Juvederm by changing the way the light hits my face....giving me a fresh look. He created the illusion that my nose is thinner....I look younger because my cheeks have a fuller appearance...I also have an arch to my eyebrows that truly opens my eyes. Forehead has no more waves. And my lips (which I was most nervous about) are my favorite part!! All this was done in an hour.
Dr. Maercks made me aware that I was going to be swollen and possibly black and blue in certain areas after the injections. It took a few days for the swelling to come down (I have always been one to swell more than the average person), but then Dr. Maercks work was revealed and I have never looked so polished.
I highly recommend Dr. Maercks if you want to look the best you can look with injectables. Just so you know, his office is small right now, but he'll be moving to a better office space in Miami soon. "
"The experience was fantastic. The result from the fat tranfered from my thighs to my face was amazing. My face looks much more youthful and I have thinner thighs! :)"
