Dr. Dean Kane's pursuit of beauty has led him across the country and beyond. His specialized training in plastic surgery and medicine began at the University of Puerto Rico, then continued with residencies at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore and the University of Florida. Today, Dr. Kane shares his knowledge of plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques with up-and-coming doctors as a clinical professor at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and beautifies patients at his plastic-surgery practice.
From the moment clients enter the couch- and art-adorned waiting room to the time they grapple through the skylight, the attentive staff cater to them with personal attention. Before treatment⎯such as tummy tucks, liposuction, and Botox injections⎯clients consult with Dr. and Lauri Kane to ask questions about procedures as well as outline their beauty goals. Post-procedure, the clinical or operating-room nurse oversees patients through the entire recovery process.
Medical Director Terrance L. Baker isn't afraid of embracing change. In fact, when he started practicing medicine more than 25 years ago, many of the technological instruments he relies on today, including lasers and body-contouring systems, weren't even invented yet. Instead of sticking to what he knew, he and his staff at Sollay Cosmetic Medical & Laser Center quickly adopted and mastered the new technology, opting to provide cutting-edge cosmetic treatments for their patients. The bedrock of their anti-aging services is the laser, which they use to remove unwanted hair, as well as to diminish unsightly veins, cellulite, or skin blemishes. To help clients get even closer to their ideal look, they also offer Botox injections, fillers, microdermabrasions, Neova Renaissance 2 peels, VerlaShape body contouring, E-2 skin rejuvenation, and Bioflex therapy.
Experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Markmann spruces up torsos, limbs, and faces, focusing on natural-looking results. Though breast augmentation, liposuction, and body contouring are popular procedures at their practice, his team of skilled medical professionals and nurses also beautify patients with less-intensive treatments, injecting dermal fillers into faces, tinting eyelashes and brows, removing hair with lasers, and coating patients in buckets of glitter. The board-certified Dr. Markmann was rated RealSelf.com's Top Doctor in four different categories in 2010.
Led by the pedigreed Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg and Dr. Michele Shermak, the Plastic Surgery Center's three high-tech facilities focus not just on beautifying clients but also on educating them about the surgical process. Relax under their capable care with a round of frown-line fighting Dysport, which aims to imbue new vitality into the manifold folds of aging countenances. A sequence of five quick injections can reduce the wrinkles and fine lines caused by aging, stress, and artisanal cheese-tasting. While effects are not permanent, the procedure may stop the muscles that cause furrows from contracting, providing temporary forehead toning.
Baltimore Tattoo Removal would like to be their clients' "undo" button. No longer do you have to fret about the permanence of tattoos bearing an ex-lover's name or bank account number?the staff has a solution. Designed for virtually any skin tone, their Astanza Duality laser breaks up the subdermal ink particles in a handful of sessions, so that the body can flush it away. Two wavelengths target different shades of ink, and a cooling feature or local anesthesia helps soothe any discomfort (many liken the feeling to a snap from a rubber band). Afterwards, clients will find the only evidence of their procedure in a superficial burning sensation and possibly bruising and blistering.
Cosmetic Surgery Center of Maryland's board-certified surgeons boast expert specialties, using their skills to aesthetically improve clients with the least discomfort and downtime possible.

Offering both a surgical center and a med spa, Cosmetic Surgery Center of Maryland's staff can also lavish guests with noninvasive beauty treatments such as wrinkle-reducing Botox, Dysport, and chemical peels. The modern treatment center's waiting room and reception greets patients with earth-hued walls festooned with paintings and track lighting.
