Are you looking for a skilled plastic surgeon offering lip reconstruction surgery near the Bethesda area? The lips are essential for both aesthetics and function. Lips help create your unique smile and facilitate speech, but they are also delicate and prone to injury. Trauma in many forms can tear or damage lip tissue; disease or congenital defects can cause deformity. At Maia Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Munique Maia, offers lip reconstruction surgery to reshape or repair lip deformities at our clinic near Chevy Chase, MD near Bethesda, MD.

The lips are complex structures of muscles, fatty tissue and skin that must be flexible to perform the required movements for speech and emotional expression. Burns, lacerations, skin/oral cancers and other trauma can impact the lips. When lip trauma occurs, muscles, tendons and tissue can be removed or damaged, requiring intricate reconstruction surgery. Not only can this require complex grafting procedures to replace or repair muscles, tendons, fatty tissue and skin for function, but the aesthetics of the lip also need to be considered. Dr. Maia is an experienced plastic and reconstructive surgeon who can perform lip reconstruction surgery to restore both function and form.

Lip Trauma Repair

A lip deformity caused by trauma can have a significant impact on your life. It can be difficult to eat or speak, and the appearance of your mouth can hurt your self-confidence. Lip trauma repair surgery can reconstruct the tissue and skin of the lips to allow improved function. Dr. Maia can also create natural, balanced lips that enhance your appearance and confidence.

Lip reconstruction surgery is a very complicated procedure that requires extensive skill and experience – not all plastic surgeons offer this specialized service. If you or a loved one have experienced lip trauma that damaged tissue and impacted function, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a lip trauma repair consultation with Dr. Maia to discuss your plastic surgery options at our clinic near Bethesda, MD.

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.
