Rian A. Maercks, M.D., P.A., American Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, is an artist and a leading aesthetic, craniofacial, and reconstructive plastic surgeon licensed in Florida and the state of New York. The surgeon’s revolutionary approaches to both surgical and non-invasive aesthetic interventions of the face and body have garnered him international recognition by surgeons and patients alike. 

Dr. Maercks earned his degrees from the Duke University School of Medicine. His undergraduate training in fine arts and philosophy created the framework through which he explores the world of medicine and plastic surgery and has allowed him to elevate the standard of patient care and safety through his work as medical director of his high-profile Miami-based surgical center.

Dr. Maercks has combined his fine arts background and advanced procedural techniques to develop Aesthetic Facial Balancing, which allows customized tailoring to create the most natural-appearing results for each, individual patient. Using either the body’s own fatty tissue or injectable fillers, Aesthetic Facial Balancing TM, sometimes referred to as “Selfie Sculpting,” leverages Dr. Maercks training as a fine artist, philosopher, craniofacial and reconstructive plastic surgeon, to deliver patients beautiful natural appearing results. He delivers results most think would require surgery with nothing but a needle in about fifteen minutes including rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty and browlift.

Following an integrated plastic and reconstructive surgical residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital — a top-ranked U.S. craniofacial pediatric center — and the University of Cincinnati Hospital, Dr. Maercks completed fellowship training in Europe and Central and South America with some of the most prominent figures in plastic surgery to date.

This extensive training included an elite fellowship with esteemed craniofacial pioneer Dr. Fernando Oritz-Monasterio and other masters of craniofacial and aesthetic surgery. Dr. Maercks continues to stay connected with international leaders in his field, and also travels worldwide to discuss ideas and innovations such as gender reassignment surgical training at places such as Helsinki Hospital in Finland and at Vu Medical Center in Amsterdam.
