If you are considering neck lift and looking for a plastic surgeon near the Bethesda area, turn to the cosmetic face surgery expert at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD. The neck can change drastically as you age, with lines, wrinkles and sagging, along with pronounced neck muscles. Too many people ignore the neck and only focus on facial rejuvenating procedures, until they realize their neck no longer matches their face in age. A neck lift can address excess and sagging skin, creating a firmer, youthful neckline. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer rejuvenating neck lift surgery at our medical center near the Bethesda, MD, area.

The neck is very prone to aging. Horizontal lines can occur as the skin loses elasticity, and eventually, there can be loose skin below the chin and down the neck. This aging of the neck can resemble a turkey wattle, the flap of skin below the turkey’s beak, and it is often referred to as such. While a facelift will tighten the jawline and portions of the upper neck, it does not remove skin and tighten the whole neck. Only a neck lift surgery can remove the turkey wattle and tighten the neck for a more youthful appearance.

Lower Rhytidectomy or Neck Rejuvenation

A rhytidectomy, or facelift, starts at the upper neck and lifts the jowls of the lower face. A lower rhytidectomy, or neck lift surgery, lifts and tightens the neck from the upper neck down. Often, facelift and neck lift surgery are performed together, completing a full rejuvenation of the neck and lower face. This can create a cohesive and natural appearance for the patient, especially if the neck has loose skin, lines and wrinkles.

If your neck is beginning to give away your age, keep the turkey wattle at bay with a rejuvenating neck lift surgery. To learn more, contact us at our Chevy Chase, MD, practice near the Bethesda, MD, area. We can schedule a private consultation with Dr. Munique Maia to discuss facelift and neck lift options.

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.
