Breast Surgery

It is common to be dissatisfied with the shape or look of breasts, but many women do not wish to undergo breast implant surgery. Breast implant surgery has progressed immeasurably since its creation, with implants looking and feeling more natural than ever.

Scarring from breast implant surgery is also much less due to incisions being made in the armpit, under the breast or at the areola. Even so, some people may not wish to undergo the significant recovery time associated with this surgery.

There is maintenance associated with breast implants, which means follow-up appointments are necessary. Risks and complications may also lead to additional surgery down the line. In some cases, this means the replacement or removal of implants.

Fat Transfer as a Breast Enhancement

Fat transfer is a leading alternative to breast implant surgery with fewer risks of complications. This procedure is used in conjunction with liposuction, thus removing unwanted fat deposits from the body at the same time. The removed fat is then transferred to the breast to increase size and give a natural result. Fat transfer combined with liposuction is ideal if you are considering a “makeover” defining your silhouette.

There are many life events that can affect the look of the breast, causing the skin to sag and the breast to droop. These include pregnancy and breast feeding, and significant weight gain and loss. The simple reality of aging and the effects of gravity are also factors that negatively impact the appearance of the breasts.

Some individuals may also have breasts that naturally hang lower than they would like, regardless of age. A breast lift can remove excess skin to restore or create lift to the breast and add firmness. This results in a more natural, youthful appearance.

Restoring Symmetry to the Breasts

Most women will have one breast that is a slightly different size than the other. However, in some instances, this effect can be quite noticeable. The difference can cause many issues, such as impacting confidence, causing an unbalanced appearance or making it difficult to find clothes or bras that fit. In this instance, breast reshaping surgery, possibly combined with a lift or fat transfer, will restore a more aesthetic look.

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.
