“Surgery is never complete until I have done the best job I can
do,” says Dr. Markmann, a perfectionist at heart. Coming from a
family of people in the medical field, it was only natural that
Dr. Markmann would follow suit. As for why he chose plastic
surgery, he says, “I love the creative and artistic aspects.” With
a practice that is solely cosmetic, he concentrates on breast
augmentation surgeries, body contouring via liposuction, tummy
tucks and bodylifts, as well as facial rejuvenation procedures,
providing patients with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Communicating in a relaxed and down-to-earth manner,
Dr. Markmann gains a new friend with each patient he meets.
“I spend about 1-2 hours in consultation with patients prior to
surgery, making sure I understand exactly what they want
to achieve.” By listening to his patients, Dr. Markmann is
then able to thoroughly explain treatment options based on
and I take the same
approach to surgery.”
—Dr. Daniel P. Markmann
Additionally, Dr. Markmann prides himself on his forthright
approach to plastic surgery. “I enjoy working with patients to achieve
common goals. Being able to provide patients with beautiful results
and the appearances they have always wanted is extremely
fulfilling.” Consequently, Dr. Markmann’s existing patients are the
main source of new patient referrals for his practice.

Q: I’M INTERESTED IN HAVING BREAST AUGMENTATION
AND HEAR THAT SILICONE IMPLANTS ARE BACK ON
THE MARKET. ARE THEY BETTER THAN SALINE?
A: That’s right. Silicone implants were recently approved by
the FDA again for breast augmentation. Now you can
choose between saline or silicone implants. There are
many issues that determine which implant is right for you.
Each implant has pros and cons. In most cases, silicone
will feel more natural than saline. It has a density more
similar to that of breast tissue, thus making it more difficult
to feel the implant and less likely that you will feel or
see ripples,which is one of the most common complaints
of women with saline implants. One advantage of saline
implants, however, is that they can be inserted through a
smaller incision than silicone, thus leaving a smaller scar.
Silicone implants are inserted in their full state, whereas
saline implants are inserted empty, then filled once inside
the breast. Research has proven silicone to be a safe
alternative to saline, but the choice is yours and should be
discussed with your plastic surgeon.
