Brazilian Butt Lift

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Baltimore, Columbia, Ellicott City and Maryland

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.

Before & After Photos


A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility.

Following surgery, patients are encouraged to relax and focus on a peaceful recovery. They should avoid stress and strain, but may be asked to gradually increase their physical activity. Dr. Markmann can explain in greater detail how the recovery from a Brazilian butt lift should be navigated. 

BBL recipients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. Dr. Markmann recommends a period of 3 weeks of no sitting and minimizing bending at the hip. Dr. Markmann recommends a compression garment to aid in the healing process, minimizing swelling and maximizing fat survival.

Bumpy Appearance?

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?

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?

Weight gain could compromise the results of the surgery. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
