If your child is in need of facial scar revision and you are seeking a plastic surgeon in the Bethesda, MD, area, turn to Dr. Maia at Maia Plastic Surgery in 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 in 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 in the Bethesda MD, area.

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!
