Specializing in Brazilian butt lifts since 1998, Dr. Markmann has perfected the “Markmann Method” for his patients in the Baltimore area. During this procedure, fat is removed from one part of the body, and injected it into the buttocks. The fat is typically removed from the flank areas along with the waistline and abdomen to lift the buttocks and provide a more youthful appearance. The ideal candidate for this procedure should have a healthy skin tone. Patients with loose skin may not be the best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift.

During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed and grafted for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.
Brazilian Butt Lift Reviews
"Dr. Markmann is definitely the butt doctor of Maryland. I love my Bunns!!!"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Nov 12, 2014
"I am delighted to have found Dr. Markmann and Dr. Dauria's practice. So far, so great!!! I keep coming back for more enhancements to improve my appearance, and each time I am pleased that some aspect that has bothered me for years has been addressed. It was the remnants of an impulsive tattoo from 15 years ago that Dr. Markmann laser removal addressed. Then it was the "sunken" eye appearance that another Dr. would not address because of the risks. Dr. Dauria's professional and skill addressed that issue. Let's not forget the upcoming surgery to finally have that derriere I only dreamt of ... Dr. Markmann is the best in the business when it comes to that solution. Thanks team!!!! I'm loving the work you do immensely. "- H.M. / Google+ / Sep 11, 2013
A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. Patients will find it difficult to sit, but are encouraged to do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.
The cost for a Brazilian butt lift will vary depending on how many donor sites are used for liposuction to retrieve the necessary amount of fat. On average, this surgery will cost between $16,000-$17,000.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs@headingTag>
If the injections are done correctly, the result will look and feel natural. During the procedure, additional liposuction may be used to help smooth out uneven skin, as well as ensure that the surface has a correct and even contour. It is important to find a reputable and highly-skilled surgeon with a special expertise in performing the Brazilian butt lift surgery.
Fat Transfer or Implants?@headingTag>
Both techniques are commonly used by cosmetic surgeons and can achieve good results. Some patients simply do not want a foreign device in their body and feel that the fat transfer method is safe and natural. A disadvantage of fat transfers, however, is that they may not last as long as an implant. Some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique during the consultation so the right decision can be made.
Weight gain could compromise the results of the surgery. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
