The septum is the wall of cartilage and bone that separates the two nasal passages in the nose structure. When the septum shifts off-center, it can impact the airway of the nasal passages. Patients with a deviated septum can experience difficulty breathing, snoring and sinus issues. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer septoplasty, or surgery for a deviated septum, at our medical center in Tysons Corner in the Washington, DC, metro area.

A variety of issues can cause a deviated septum. Injuries to the nose are a common cause of septum damage that can create a crooked nose or deviated septum. Previous nose job surgery can result in a damaged septum that can shift out of place. Some deviated septum issues are congenital or present at birth. Regardless of the cause, if a deviated septum is causing health issues or a cosmetic concern, it can be repaired through plastic surgery.

Septoplasty or Septum Repair Surgery

Dr. Munique Maia is a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in performing nose reconstruction, cosmetic and repair surgery, including septoplasty for a deviated septum. Repairing a deviated septum can include reshaping and grafting bone and cartilage to create even nasal passages to improve nose and breathing function. Septoplasty can be performed solely for functional purposes or as part of a rhinoplasty or nose reshaping procedure. Many patients with a deviated septum use this opportunity to make functional and cosmetic improvements to their nose.

If you suffer from breathing problems, snoring or chronic sinusitis caused by a deviated septum, get relief with septoplasty. Dr. Maia at Maia Plastic Surgery can perform your septoplasty with or without cosmetic nose surgery at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA. Contact our plastic surgery practice today to schedule your nose surgery consultation with Dr. Maia.

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.
