Are you in need of breast asymmetry correction and looking for a cosmetic breast surgeon near the Bethesda area? Breast size can have a dramatic impact on your silhouette and shape as a woman. Genetics can determine the size and shape of your breasts, but you have the choice to change this feature on your body. Whether you always wanted larger or differently shaped breasts, or your breasts have lost volume over the years, breast augmentation surgery with breast implants can transform the breasts into the desired shape and size. Dr. Munique Maia is a breast augmentation and implant specialist who can create beautiful, natural-appearing breasts for you at our clinic near the Bethesda, MD area.

Natural-Looking Breast Implant Surgery

Breast implant and augmentation surgery has come a long way from when it first began decades ago. The surgical techniques and quality of implants can create breasts that look and feel natural. Dr. Maia is a mammoplasty specialist who has performed many breast augmentation surgeries with spectacular results. Her advanced techniques can create the ideal breast appearance for each patient, with discreet incisions and a lower risk of complications.

Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Breast implants can improve the size and shape of the breasts and is the ideal option for patients who desire breast enlargement. It is a common surgical technique utilized to enlarge natural breast size, correct volume deficiency after pregnancy and achieve balance and symmetry in patients with different breast sizes. It is also utilized as a reconstructive option following mastectomy for breast cancer. Patients who have stretched skin and sagging tissue can benefit from a breast lift (mastopexy), which can be performed in combination with breast augmentation.

What to Expect During Your Breast Augmentation Consultation

The first step to obtaining your new breasts is a detailed consultation with Dr. Maia at our clinic near Chevy Chase, MD. During your consultation, Dr. Maia will discuss your goals and develop a tailored treatment plan for you. There are important topics to be discussed, and they are outlined below.

  • Implant choice – There are three types of implants available in the market: saline, ideal implant and silicone. At Maia Plastic Surgery, you will have the opportunity to see samples of all types of breast implants. You will be able to feel the difference between them and choose the type that you prefer. There are risks associated with breast implant surgery. Dr. Maia will discuss the risks with you and determine if you are a candidate for this type of procedure.
  • Implant size and shape – Deciding the size of your breast implant can be challenging. You will have the opportunity to “try on” different sizes of breast implants and choose the size that you desire. Vectra 3D simulation is very helpful to patients in the decision-making process. During your consultation, you will be able to experiment with different sizes until you find the one you want. Before and after pictures are helpful. However, most of the decision is based on your natural anatomy. Patients really appreciate seeing the simulations based on their preoperative pictures.
  • Incision/scar location – Incisions can be placed in the areola (periareolar), along the breast crease (inframammary) or under the axilla/armpit (transaxillary). Dr. Maia will discuss with you the benefits of each incision option during your initial consultation.
  • Recovery time – We advise patients to take one to two weeks off work. Be aware that healing is different for each person. Soreness and swelling may persist for weeks. The first few weeks after surgery are critical for healing. Most patients can resume light activities three weeks after surgery.
  • Long term follow-up – Breast implants are not lifetime devices, and monitoring is required. There are risks and complications associated with breast implants and additional surgery might be required. Dr. Maia will discuss the risks during your consultation.

Breast augmentation with breast implants can create the body shape you desire. Dr. Maia and our medical team at Maia Plastic Surgery invite you to schedule a breast augmentation consultation at our clinic near the Bethesda area, to discuss the options available for creating the desired shape and size for your breasts. Call today to schedule your appointment.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
