Eyelid Surgery

The upper and lower eyelids have a dramatic impact on the appearance of the eyes and face. If the eyelids sag or droop, it causes the eyes to look tired and the individual may appear older. In these pandemic times, the expression of the eyes has taken on special significance.

The prolonged use of a face mask, due to the COVID-19 pandemic measures applied, has triggered a boom in blepharoplasty surgery. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can remove bags and excess skin on the lower or upper eyelids to give them a more youthful, lively appearance. We offer this procedure at our medical clinic in the Washington, DC metro area.

As a mask hides the lower face and mouth expression, it gives greater prominence to the eye area, placing more importance, if possible, on the gaze. Thus, people who do not feel comfortable with their own gaze due to a tired or sad appearance are looking for ways to improve their appearance.

Blepharoplasty Surgery

As we age, our lower and upper eyelids are prone to stretching and sagging because we lose elasticity in our skin. This results in eye bags and sad, tired eyes. Lower blepharoplasty can remove excess skin to eliminate bags under the eyes and firm up the lower eyelid. This can rejuvenate the eyes for a youthful, energetic and joyful look.

The excess skin and fat are removed with an upper blepharoplasty, and the eyelid is tightened, eliminating prominent bags or dark circles. This can open up the eye, creating a more energetic appearance. Additionally, an upper eyelid lift is often paired with a brow lift to rejuvenate the entire upper face.

The incision is performed in the natural crease of the upper lid and is totally inconspicuous. As a result, the scar is hidden and will fade over time. The surgery can be safely performed in the office under local anesthesia and takes around one hour.

If you want to rejuvenate your eyes for a refreshed appearance, then blepharoplasty surgery is right for you. Contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery or visit our clinic in Washington, DC or Tysons Corner, VA, to learn more about this procedure. We can schedule your eyelid lift consultation today!

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.
