Plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, and tattoo art Half a year ago, a new concept was realised in the centre of Graz that would break new ground. A pioneering symbiosis of plastic/aesthetic surgery and tattoo art has been developed through the centre MARA, which is short for medical aesthetic research academy. At MARA, patients benefit from state-of-the-art technology and a team of top experts in the various fields in which it practices. TEXT: MARILENA STRACKE  I  PHOTO: MARA

Many months ago, the project was brought to life by plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Rappl and the international tattoo artist Mario Barth. Graz became the new home of MARA, the innovative centre for medical aesthetics. The pillar of this new concept is the synergy between reconstructive surgery and medical tattooing. It is a form of tattooing dedicated to restoring and its aim is to perfect the results of reconstructive surgery even further. The second focus at MARA lies on tattooremoval, which is achieved using modern picosecond technology. This is currently the most efficient way of getting the best 32  |  Issue 57  |  December 2017

results. Even coloured tattoos can be removed, which the common lasers on the market can either not achieve in this quality or cannot accomplish at all. High standard cover-ups are also available and can be done in Mario Barth’s nearby studio. This completes and refines the overall concept at MARA. Aside from those two main areas, MARA also offers the entire range of aesthetic procedures. This includes anything from non-surgical aesthetic treatments to minimally invasive aesthetic surgery. An additional innovation is the treatment of cellulite using the newest technology known as

‘Cellfina’, offered at MARA by Dr. Simone May. With this innovative system the cellulite problem areas can be specially targeted and treated. The procedure promises perfect results that are long-lasting. Dermatologist Michaela Wiednig and Dr. Daniela Url are also part of the team at MARA and contribute in-depth knowledge regarding aesthetics and dermatology. This is a further great benefit for the patients at MARA. All in all, MARA works as an exceptional holistic centre for aesthetics of any shape or form. It is reassuring to know that the team works across each of their individual fields of expertise, and can take a wide range of knowledge into account when treating a patient.
