Dr. Munique Maia - Award-Winning, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

In a world where self-expression and well-being takes center stage, the correlation between looking good and feeling good is undeniable. Beyond the surface, individuals are increasingly recognizing the impact of aesthetic and cosmetic treatments on their overall confidence and mental well-being.

To talk about the positive impact of plastic surgery in a person’s life, we sat down with Dr. Munique Maia, a board certified, Havard trained plastic surgeon. She has earned the trust and admiration of patients for her mastery in performing natural facelifts and transformative mommy makeover procedures, solidifying her reputation as DMV’s Premier Plastic Surgeon.

Dr. Maia, many individuals today are opting for a transformative procedure known as the ‘mommy makeover.’ Could you enlighten our audience on what exactly a mommy makeover entails and shed some light on how this procedure empowers women and enhances their confidence?

Absolutely. A mommy makeover typically involves a combination of cosmetic procedures aimed at addressing the physical changes that occur in a woman’s body after pregnancy, childbirth and weight loss. Some of the changes might include alterations in breast size and shape, abdominal stretching, and changes in body contours. While these changes are natural and often celebrated as part of the journey of motherhood, they can also lead to feelings of self-consciousness and dissatisfaction with one’s appearance. By undergoing procedures such as breast augmentation or lift, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction, moms can restore or enhance their pre-pregnancy figures, achieving a more youthful, toned, and balanced appearance.

Plastic surgery, particularly in the form of a mommy makeover, can be deeply empowering and emotionally rewarding.

Could you elaborate on the techniques and approach you employ to ensure that your patients achieve such stunning yet genuine and natural-looking results?

67 year-old patient before and after facelift at Maia Plastic SurgeryOne of my key principles is to approach each patient as an individual with unique needs and concerns, rather than simply focusing on achieving a standardized aesthetic ideal. In my practice, I prioritize taking the time to deeply understand my patients’ concerns and desires, ensuring that every aspect of their journey is personalized and tailored to their unique needs. My commitment to delivering natural-looking results extends to meticulously addressing every detail, to provide outcomes that not only enhance their appearance but also boost their confidence and overall well-being.

And where are the scars? I can’t see them.

That’s the goal!

During the surgery, I incorporate cutting-edge, modern techniques into all my procedures to carefully elevate the skin and underlying tissues and to ensure that my facelift patients appear refreshed rather than over-pulled and scars heal discreetly. I meticulously craft inconspicuous scars that are artfully concealed in front of the ear, around the hairline, and behind the ears, to the point where one wouldn’t even suspect a procedure was performed there. For me, a facelift is like art, where every detail matters.

We’re happy that Dr. Maia could shed light on the transformative effects of plastic surgery, particularly mommy makeovers, emphasizing the empowerment and confidence it brings to women seeking to restore their pre-pregnancy figures. We’re grateful for her expertise and commitment to empowering individuals through aesthetic transformations.

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.
