About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Maryland plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Kane is a leader in his field. His extensive training, board certifications, professional affiliations and years of experience set him apart from most other cosmetic surgeons in Baltimore, Maryland and beyond.Another unique aspect of Dr. Kane's credentials is his firm belief in the value of non-surgical rejuvenation. In fact, he and Lauri Kane have spent a great deal of time and energy to research and test a variety of non-invasive treatments for their patients. They know that some men and women aren't good candidates for plastic surgery, and some are just not yet ready. Not only that, Dr. Kane knows that surgery is not the answer for every condition.

Having worked with the Obagi® System of skin products and found them to be what he calls "the gold standard" in facial rejuvenation, the Baltimore plastic surgeon has been pleased to serve on the faculty board of Obagi® Medical Products for ten years. Dr. Kane is a national instructor for not just Obagi® products, but for BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane® and Juvéderm™ as well. And the Center for Cosmetic Surgery & MediSpa has been chosen a premier Restylane® injection facility.

With a wide variety of non-surgical treatments to choose from , Dr. Dean Kane, Lauri Kane and their team of professionally-trained skin care experts can meet just about any need. For some patients, this means adding a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing to their face lift in Baltimore for total rejuvenation. For others, it means trying one of today's popular injectable fillers to delay surgery a while longer. Some simply need to bring a teenager to Dr. Kane's "Acne Boot Camp" .

Dr. Dean Kane and Lauri Kane have created and assembled the surgical and non-surgical treatments they offer with your convenience and comfort in mind. When you request your consultation with them, you can feel confident knowing that more than one option will be available to you.

If you have questions or you don't feel quite ready to make an appointment, give Lauri Kane a call at 410.602.3322. You'll get objective input grounded in Lauri Kane's training and experience working with plastic surgery and medical spa clients. She and Dr. Kane hope to welcome you to the Center for Cosmetic Surgery & MediSpa on Reservoir Circle in Baltimore soon.

Your Consultation

The Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Medi-Spa in Baltimore is unique as they provide a husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Kane and wife, Lauri Kane practice. Their Maryland Center offers  a warm and caring approach in cosmetic surgery in a very sophisticated beautiful and homey like setting. Each patient will receive the male and female perspective or the Ying and Yang to what would be cosmetically best for each patient. While Dr. Kane and Lauri most often agree, there are times each offers a different perspective that gives the patient two very viable options in choosing the right cosmetic approach. The Kane’s have been married for 33 years and have worked together over 20 years together in their Maryland Center for Cosmetic Surgery to give their patients a genuine caring approach to all their rejuvenation needs.
Dr. Dean Kane tends to be serious, clinical yet conservative.  While he is a very creative out of the box thinker, he always does the right thing for patients and does not sway
away from performing what is the right procedure for the right patient. His patients love him and you can hear their own personal testimonials on our videos right on our website: www.DrDeanKane.com.

Dr. Kane always puts the safety of the patient first and foremost and is always compassionate in his approach in the care of his patients. So he gets excellent results while being conservative for the safety of the patient. 

Dr. Kane will use cutting edge technology when he believes it is appropriate, but will also go with the traditional when that is appropriate. The bottom line is that each patient gets very individual approaches and Dr. Kane tries very hard to match the approach with the patient.

The ying and yang of there is Center is Lauri Kane’s role  to provide the woman’s touch for all their patients.  Lauri first sees the patient and truly listens to what their issues and concerns. She gets an overall assessment about the patient, health history, social history, emotional issues, and financial capabilities. By the time Dr. Kane enters the room, Lauri figures out what are the best approaches for the patient. Lauri becomes the patient advocate. The patient knows that Lauri truly listened to what she wants and explains what the patient wants to Dean. The patients can rely on Lauri to be honest with her opinions and help her focus on what she came in for. “I am very easy going and caring about all our patient needs and they know that they can call me for any problems or questions any time.”

When you come to the Center for Cosmetic Surgery, be prepared for warm hugs and a welcome into the Kane family. Their patients are all “lifers” because they love the Kane’s, their very friendly staff and their charming office. The Maryland based Center serves patients from the Eastern Shore, All of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC and Virginia.

Surgical Facility

Our cosmetic surgery practice in Maryland is located in a modern, 3,000 square-foot office (complete with lots of free parking) just a block off the Baltimore beltway, making it easily accessible from just about anywhere. Our spacious office—as inviting as a living room—is not only beautiful, but also recognized as one of the top surgical facilities in the state of Maryland. Since opening in 1990, we have continually been recognized as plastic surgery leaders in Baltimore. We were recently designated the National BOTOX® Cosmetic Training Center in the state and were hand picked to be a premier Restylane® injection facility. Our center also features a state-of-the-art surgical suite for those who wish for a more comfortable, private setting. Whatever your needs, you may rest assured that here you will be in great hands.
