Are you in need of Mohs surgery in the Bethesda area? Skin cancer impacts millions of people each year, and it is the most common type of cancer and usually very treatable if caught in the early stages. The most common skin cancer treatment is Mohs surgery, an effective option to remove the skin cancer cells before they can spread to other areas of the body. The only issue is that Mohs surgery can leave significant damage to the skin and tissue. Maia Plastic Surgery offers Mohs surgery reconstruction to reshape skin and facial features at our clinic in the Bethesda area.

Mohs surgery has been used for decades for skin cancer treatment. The method takes away cancerous lesions from the skin and underlying tissue, then removes thin layers of skin and tissue around the area, analyzing each layer for cancer cells. Layers are removed until no cancer cells are present. While this is considered one of the best skin cancer treatments, it can also leave a large wound. Since most skin cancer occurs in exposed areas like the face, head and neck, Mohs surgery can result in a cosmetic deformity.

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!
