Young woman with closed eyes

The first sign of aging is the descent of the brow. An ideal brow position for a man is straight, giving them a more squared-off forehead and hooded eyes. The lateral brow should be positioned above the eyesocket on females, and directly over the eye bone on males. This placement creates an open, airy, awake and youthful appearance.

Various ways can be used to lift or correct the brow. By relaxing the muscle that lowers the brow, Botox® can be used to elevate the brows in mild cases of brow sagging. Alternatives to surgery include radiofrequency called Thermage and ultrasound, sometimes called Ultherapy.

Both open and endoscopic procedures are generally available. A scalp incision is made from one ear to the other ear and excess scalp tissue is removed to elevate the brow. There is the possibility that this approach alters the hairline and leaves permanent scarring in the open treatment.

A Better Option

Plastic surgeons prefer endoscopic browlifts for their minimally invasive approach. Endoscopic browlifts use much shorter incisions to lift the brow. Hairlines will not be distorted by endoscopic browlifts, and scars will be small. These minimally invasive procedures are done in the office setting and are a very safe alternative. They require less downtime and quicker recovery and results. If you want to avoid the complications of a more open, traditional browlift surgery, this is a great option for you.

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!
