Are you looking for a skilled plastic surgeon offering midface lift surgery near the Bethesda area? The midface includes the upper and lower cheeks that form the main contours of the face. With aging, the midface can droop and lose volume under the skin, creating fat, sagging cheeks. The nasolabial fold can deepen, and hollows or bags may be pronounced under the eyes due to the upper cheeks sagging. Dr. Munique Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD, near Bethesda, MD, offer midface lift surgery to rejuvenate the cheeks for a more youthful appearance.

Dr. Maia is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in facial rejuvenation. Her goal with lift procedures is to help patients achieve a more youthful appearance that looks natural, and you will still look like you, only younger. With a midface lift, she addresses the skin, tissue and fat between the lower nose and upper cheek bone, elevating and tightening the skin and tissue into a more youthful position.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Midface Lift?

A traditional facelift addresses the lower face and upper neck when the jowls begin to sag, and blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and brow lifts address the eyes and forehead aging issues. The midface lift is the area in between, connecting all the facial features. A midface lift can be combined with a traditional facelift, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) or browlift for full face rejuvenation. Those who have a noticeable drooping under the eyes due to lost volume or sagging in the cheeks or deep nasolabial folds (smile lines) may benefit the most from a midface lift.

If you have noticed eye bags, lines or drooping cheeks as you age, midface lift surgery may be right for you. To learn more about our face and neck rejuvenation procedures, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery near the Bethesda, MD area for a midface lift consultation with Dr. Maia.

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.
