Facelift Before & After Photos
What to expect from a facelift?
The goal of a facelift is to help each patient look like a younger version of themselves.
Dr. Maia’s comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation is artistically tailored to suit each patients’ unique anatomy and aesthetic goals. Facial rejuvenation from our board-certified plastic surgeon, can dramatically reduce signs of age in the face with results that look beautiful and natural.
Healing Process and Scars
The facelift operation is safe and well-tolerated by patients. Discomfort is minimal and recovery is rapid for most patients. The incisions are well hidden even on a close-up examination. During the early phases of the healing process, the incisions may be swollen, with some redness and tenderness, but over time they become softer. Dr. Maia uses cutting edge techniques to carefully elevate the skin and underlying tissues and deliver beautiful, natural results with scars that are nearly imperceptible. Some degree of bruising and swelling is to be expected. This will resolve in 7-10 days.
Putting one's looks into someone else's hands is an overwhelming decision. After meeting with several Plastic Surgeon's, when I met Munique I felt immediately at ease. First off her staff is remarkable. I deal with Gabrielle, the Patient Concierge, who is remarkable. She is delicate in her approach, professional in her manner, and knowledgeable in her field. She and the Doctor are with you every step of the way, above and beyond what would be defined as "office hours". I was led to a room to wait for Dr. Maia. There was no endless waits I experienced with so many others. When we met I was struck by her youth, but as soon as we began to speak about my procedure she was fluent and knowledgeable putting me immediately at ease. It did not take me long after our meeting to make my decision. Other patient's will tell you in their review's that Munique is wonderful, amazing, the best, marvelous, etc., but since our meeting I have had a face/neck/brow lift, arm lift, breast lift, thigh lift any several injectable procedures. If that isn't testimonial enough, I drive in to see her several hours and stay in a hotel just because she is that good! If you have ANY hesitation, DON'T. Stop looking for that perfect Doctor, you've found her!
My experience with Dr. Maia could not have been better. Being new to cosmetic surgery, and the fact that it involved my face, naturally made me very nervous. She was the fourth doctor I met with and I knew after 20 minutes that she would be the surgeon I would go with. I liked her approach which was a goal of giving me a refreshed look and the fact that she had patients that I could talk to if I had any concerns or questions. No other doctor offered up their patients to talk to. My procedure was limited to my jaw line and my neck. This was two procedures and they came out beautifully. Most people thought I just lost a weight and I did tell my friends I had work done (I have nothing to hide and I’m not embarrassed by it). They were all blown away at the results and most of my friends saw me a couple of weeks after the procedure. Even a few weeks after the surgery you really could not see any of the incision sites. I just looked a little swollen but that went down in a very reasonable amount of time. All said I can not recommend Dr Maia any more strongly. She was thorough in her explanations, really put me at ease, has a great process, and her staff is also excellent! There are a lot of cosmetic surgeons in this area and you have to do your due diligence. But I highly recommend Dr. Maia be on your list - the top of your list. You will not be disappointed.
My experience with Dr. Maia has been overwhelmingly positive. She is undisputably one of the most highly skilled cosmetic surgeons I have ever come across (and I have consulted many!), with a mastery of state-of-the-art techniques and a passion for perfection and natural-looking results. At the same time, she does not hesitate to discourage procedures that she feels are unsuitable for achieving the intended effect.
