If your child is in need of facial scar revision and you are seeking a plastic surgeon near the Bethesda, MD, area, turn to Dr. Maia at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD.
Every injury to the skin can cause a visible scar, but most small scars fade and are barely noticeable with time. However, extensive injuries can leave more obtrusive and disfiguring scars, especially when they occur on the face. Large scars can be traumatic for a child, impacting their appearance and self-confidence in their formative years. At Maia Plastic Surgery, our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Munique Maia, offers pediatric scar revision to hide or minimize deforming facial scars at our clinic near Chevy Chase, MD, near Bethesda, MD.

Burns, surgeries and other types of injuries can create scars that can change a child’s facial appearance. Facial scars can not only change the skin, but the tissue and facial features can also be affected. While the initial injury may have been medically treated, the scar left behind can be another burden for a child to bear. Pediatric scar revision or treatment can help minimize the appearance of the scar and reshape skin or tissue to improve the child’s appearance.

Facial Scar Treatments for Children

Scar removal can never completely remove all scar tissue, but it can be made less noticeable. For surface scars, laser skin treatments are one of the most effective options to improve the appearance of the skin. However, for deforming facial scars with tissue damage, plastic surgery may be required. Scar revision surgery can reshape the tissue and skin, reducing scarring and improving the facial appearance. Skin or tissue grafting may be necessary, depending on the extent and depth of the original wound and scar.

Pediatric facial plastic surgery can be an option to reduce the appearance of childhood facial scars. If you want to explore scar treatments or revision surgery for your child, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Maia to discuss the best options for your child’s case at our clinic near the Bethesda MD, 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.
