If you are looking for a sebaceous cyst removal specialist near the Bethesda area, turn to experts at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD. Cysts of various types can occur in the skin, creating a lump or bump filled with fluid. Sebaceous and epidermoid cysts are both typically benign and harmless, but when they occur on the face, they can cause discomfort and cosmetic concerns. Dr. Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offer options for epidermoid and sebaceous cyst removal at our medical center near the Bethesda, MD, area.

A sebaceous cyst is formed in the skin when an oil gland is damaged or blocked. This blockage can be caused by a variety of skin issues, from infections and injuries to common acne breakouts. While the cyst is not harmful, it can be uncomfortable and create an undesirable lump. Sebaceous cyst removal must remove the entire cyst to ensure it does not reoccur. Dr. Maia can carefully excise the cyst while preserving the integrity of the skin to reduce the chance of noticeable scarring.

Removing Facial Epidermoid Cysts

Another type of facial bump that can impact the aesthetics of the face are epidermoid cysts. These are small, hard nodules that can appear on the face, sometimes yellow or brown in color. Facial epidermoid cysts are usually not a health risk, but they are blemishes that deter from a smooth or even complexion. If a facial epidermoid cyst does not disappear on its own, Dr. Maia can carefully remove the growth to restore a more attractive skin appearance with little to no visible scarring.

If you have a facial cyst that is unattractive or distracting, contact our team at Maia Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a private consultation to discuss cyst removal options for sebaceous or epidermoid cysts. Call our clinic near Chevy Chase near Bethesda, MD, to schedule your appointment with our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Maia.

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.
