Are you looking to restore the youthful and vibrant appearance of your eyes? At Maia Plastic Surgery, conveniently located in the greater Washington, DC, area, we offer a range of specialized procedures to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. One such procedure is Canthopexy, a highly effective technique to rejuvenate the eyes and enhance your overall facial appearance. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Munique Maia, is a leading expert in this field, and she offers consultations at our offices in Tyson’s Corner, VA, and Chevy Chase, MD.

What is Canthopexy?

Canthopexy is a surgical procedure designed to correct the position and appearance of the outer corners of the eyes. As we age, the natural support structures around the eyes may weaken, leading to drooping or sagging of the lower eyelids and a tired or aged look. Canthopexy addresses this issue by tightening and repositioning the lateral canthal tendon, which helps restore a more youthful and alert appearance to the eyes.

The Benefits of Canthopexy at Maia Plastic Surgery

  • Youthful Appearance: Canthopexy can significantly improve the appearance of the eyes, making them appear more refreshed and youthful.
  • Natural Results: Dr. Munique Maia is known for her commitment to achieving natural-looking results. She tailors each Canthopexy procedure to the unique needs and facial anatomy of the patient.
  • Minimal Scarring: Canthopexy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves small incisions hidden within the natural contours of the eyes. This means minimal scarring and a discreet outcome.
  • Quick Recovery: Recovery time after Canthopexy is relatively short, allowing you to return to your normal activities within a short period.
  • Enhanced Self-Confidence: Restoring the appearance of your eyes can boost your self-esteem and confidence, helping you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

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.
