Breast size can have a dramatic impact on your silhouette and shape as a woman. Genetics can determine the size and shape of your breasts, but you have the choice to change this feature on your body. Whether you always wanted larger or differently shaped breasts, or your breasts have lost volume over the years, breast augmentation surgery with breast implants can transform the breasts into the desired shape and size. Dr. Munique Maia is a breast augmentation and implant specialist who can create beautiful, natural-appearing breasts for you at our clinic in the Washington, DC, area.

Natural-Looking Breast Implant Surgery

Breast implant and augmentation surgery has come a long way from when it first began decades ago. The surgical techniques and quality of implants can create breasts that look and feel natural. Dr. Maia is a mammoplasty specialist who has performed many breast augmentation surgeries with spectacular results. Her advanced techniques can create the ideal breast appearance for each patient, with discreet incisions and a lower risk of complications.

Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Breast implants can improve the size and shape of the breasts and is the ideal option for patients who desire breast enlargement. It is a common surgical technique utilized to enlarge natural breast size, correct volume deficiency after pregnancy and achieve balance and symmetry in patients with different breast sizes. It is also utilized as a reconstructive option following mastectomy for breast cancer. Patients who have stretched skin and sagging tissue can benefit from a breast lift (mastopexy), which can be performed in combination with breast augmentation.

What to Expect During Your Breast Augmentation Consultation

The first step to obtaining your new breasts is a detailed consultation with Dr. Maia at our clinic in Tysons Corner. During your consultation, Dr. Maia will discuss your goals and develop a tailored treatment plan for you. There are important topics to be discussed, and they are outlined below.

  • Implant choice – There are three types of implants available in the market: saline, ideal implant and silicone. At Maia Plastic Surgery, you will have the opportunity to see samples of all types of breast implants. You will be able to feel the difference between them and choose the type that you prefer. There are risks associated with breast implant surgery. Dr. Maia will discuss the risks with you and determine if you are a candidate for this type of procedure.
  • Implant size and shape – Deciding the size of your breast implant can be challenging. You will have the opportunity to “try on” different sizes of breast implants and choose the size that you desire. Vectra 3D simulation is very helpful to patients in the decision-making process. During your consultation, you will be able to experiment with different sizes until you find the one you want. Before and after pictures are helpful. However, most of the decision is based on your natural anatomy. Patients really appreciate seeing the simulations based on their preoperative pictures.
  • Incision/scar location – Incisions can be placed in the areola (periareolar), along the breast crease (inframammary) or under the axilla/armpit (transaxillary). Dr. Maia will discuss with you the benefits of each incision option during your initial consultation.
  • Recovery time – We advise patients to take one to two weeks off work. Be aware that healing is different for each person. Soreness and swelling may persist for weeks. The first few weeks after surgery are critical for healing. Most patients can resume light activities three weeks after surgery.
  • Long term follow-up – Breast implants are not lifetime devices, and monitoring is required. There are risks and complications associated with breast implants and additional surgery might be required. Dr. Maia will discuss the risks during your consultation.

Breast augmentation with breast implants can create the body shape you desire. Dr. Maia and our medical team at Maia Plastic Surgery invite you to schedule a breast augmentation consultation at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA, to discuss the options available for creating the desired shape and size for your breasts. Call today to schedule your appointment.

Kerri L.

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.

Justine A.

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!
