Are you looking for lip reduction plastic surgery in the Bethesda area? An attractive mouth and face revolve around facial balance. The mouth and lips should be proportionate to the other facial features – if they seem too large or too small, it can impact the harmony of the face. While voluptuous lips are desirable, lips that protrude or seem too big can create facial imbalance. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer lip reduction surgery at our medical center in the Bethesda, MD, area.

Lip size and volume are part of your genetic code. While some people yearn for fuller lips than their genes dictated, others have an overabundance of lip tissue. Larger lips can be distracting or even impact speech. The best option to reshape and resize the lips to a more balanced and harmonious appearance is plastic surgery. The goal is to create lips that match your face shape and other features while protecting the lip function and natural appearance.

Lip Reshaping To Achieve Facial Balance

Dr. Munique Maia was fellowship-trained and is a board-certified plastic surgeon with many years of experience. Her skills allow her to perform lip reshaping procedures that protect the intricate movement needed by the lips for speech and expression while creating the desired aesthetic appearance. Dr. Maia focuses on creating a natural lip appearance that blends perfectly with the other facial features to improve overall facial balance.

Lip reshaping or resizing are more complex than they appear. It is vital to ensure the lips still can function and move naturally when adding or removing volume. Dr. Maia has the needed experience to ensure lip reshaping is performed with both function and form in mind to achieve the desired results.

If you want to explore lip reduction surgery to achieve facial balance, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a lip reshaping consultation with Dr. Maia to discuss plastic surgery to resize and shape your lips. Call our clinic in Chevy Chase, MD, near Bethesda, MD, to book your appointment.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
