For a non-surgical cheek lift near the Bethesda area, turn to cosmetic facial treatments experts at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD. The cheeks play an important role in the youthfulness of your face. When the cheeks sag, it can make your face look sunken, and there may be increased bags or hollows under the eyes. To restore the shape of the midface, you need the cheeks lifted, plumped and tightened. For many, this can be accomplished with a non-surgical cheek lift, available at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase near Bethesda, MD.

As you get older, the cheeks and midface may change. It is common for the youthful plumpness of the cheeks to diminish with age, and the skin may begin to lose its elasticity and firmness. The fat pads that sit high on the cheekbones during youth can flatten and begin to droop if the skin and tissue loses its firmness. The result is deeper or more pronounced bags or hollows under the eyes, deeper smile lines and a slight drooping of the cheeks. In the early stages, these changes can be addressed with non-surgical treatments to tighten the skin and give the cheeks a “lift.”

Midface Skin Tightening

The skin loses elasticity when the collagen levels begin to drop in the 20s and 30s. This can allow the midface and cheeks to lose their firmness. Skin tightening treatments can stimulate collagen production using energy waves. Radiofrequency (RF) and other treatments can improve the elasticity of the cheeks to help “lift” the midface. Other non-surgical treatments can enhance the skin tightening, including facial filler injections to restore volume in the cheeks and under smile lines.

If you want to rejuvenate your cheeks and midface but you are not ready for a surgical cheek lift or mid facelift, consider a non-surgical cheek lift. To learn more, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery. Our staff can schedule an appointment with Dr. Maia to discuss cheek lift options, surgical and non-surgical, at our clinic near the Bethesda area.

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.
