Rhinoplasty for Function and Beauty Tysons, VA
Beautiful woman's nose

Approximately 220,000 nose jobs are performed every year according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Although the numbers have been decreasing from previous years, rhinoplasty still has one of the highest rankings among the most common facial plastic surgery procedures. Individuals request rhinoplasty for many reasons, both cosmetic and to restore function to the nose.

A Complex Cosmetic Surgery

Because the nose is such a prominent feature of the face, it is important to study its form before surgery. All the small nuances of size and shape must be held under consideration when reshaping it to ensure the outcome will enhance the appearance. Along with those factors, the realities of internal structures also need to be considered.

The nasal passages are delicate. Care must be taken not to damage them during surgery. The small size of the nose can make this a challenging procedure. In addition to maintaining the function, the surgeon must also ensure that the end result will complement the other facial features.

Today’s standard of beauty for the nose is changing. It has become more inclusive of all types and sizes of noses, whereas for decades, only the small, thin or straight nose was considered the standard. Many individuals who had rhinoplasty to achieve that standard are requesting surgery again to restore the natural shape of their nose.

Functional Surgery

Rhinoplasty is required for some individuals who have problems breathing through their nose. A common problem is the deviated septum. This can be corrected with surgery. Injuries and defects in development are also situations where nose surgery is functional over cosmetic. In many instances, such rhinoplasty restores a natural appearance while correcting the functional problem.

Results Develop Slowly

You may be surprised to learn that the results of a nose job are not immediate as Hollywood makes it seem. Due to the tissues and structures involved, healing of the nose can take a few weeks. Some swelling may be noticeable after this time. Most people feel comfortable appearing in public after three or four weeks of healing.

Complete healing of a rhinoplasty can take up to several months. Patients are advised to wait a full year to allow for the final results to truly be visible.

Whether you are seeking rhinoplasty for better function or a better appearance, at Maia Plastic Surgery we offer excellent care. Contact us to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Maia to discuss your options.

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!

I’m not sure where to begin when attempting to explain the positive experience I had with Dr. Maia and her team. It was important for me to find a woman doctor and she comes with so much experience, an eye for detail and aesthetically on point! I felt so well taken care of, even after 2 months post op they still make me feel taken care of. Not only am I thrilled about the physical results, I am also blown away by their care and follow through. I follow Dr.Maia in IG and literally obsessed with her work!

Dr. Maia is truly amazing! She is an artist and somewhat of a magician! She takes the time to listen to you and walk you through the procedure every step of the way! I even texted after with questions and she and her team were very responsive! I was extremely impressed with the work she did around my eyes. Several people now tell me my 20 year old daughter looks just like me….I never heard that prior to the procedure!

Taylor H.

I had one of the most pleasant healthcare experiences I’ve ever had in my life! I came in for excessive underarm sweating and Dr. Maia recommended Botox. She carefully explained everything to me, which I really appreciated as it was my first time ever getting Botox treatment. Her medical assistants were very attentive to my additional questions and made me feel very comfortable while prepping for the treatment. Dr. Maia took her time with me, none of the 5-minute appointments you often get with doctors these days. Everyone was very welcoming and the office is bright and clean. Dr. Maia was referred to me by a family meme we and I’m so glad I went to see her. I absolutely recommend Dr. Maia to anyone and I plan to come back for additional future treatments.

Cynthia S.

I had a tummy tuck, lipo, and a prominent osteoma removed from my forehead. Although I was nervous about the procedures, Dr. Maia and her staff put my fears to rest. Even after the surgery, her professional staff called to check on me during my recovery, which helped put me mind at ease. Dr. Maia and her staff were always professional, responsive, and listened when I had concerns. After the procedures, I was back at work two weeks later and could not be happier with my results. I had a great experience and Dr. Maia will be my first call for any other procedures.

Dr. Maia is great! She is very knowledgeable! I recommend her to anyone looking to do a cosmetic procedure, breast augmentation, facial lift, etc. Look her up on Instagram so you can see the amazing results from some of her patients!!!!
