Few cosmetic surgeries can have the impact of a facelift when it comes to facial rejuvenation. The face changes with age, losing its firmness and youthful contours. A facelift is designed to address sagging and lost firmness in the lower face and upper neck, erasing years from your appearance. At Maia Plastic Surgery, our mission is to enhance your natural beauty with state-of-the-art surgical techniques and the latest non-surgical treatments. We offer facelift surgery for men and women at our medical center in the greater Washington, DC, metro area at Tysons Corner.

Dr. Maia is a fellowship trained and board certified plastic surgeon. She is highly skilled in the latest techniques in facial rejuvenation and facelift surgical methods. Her approach to facial rejuvenation incorporates sophisticated techniques to enhance the cheeks, sculpt and tighten the lower face, jawline and neck. She utilizes deep layer techniques, which give a natural look and adds longevity to the results.

A surgical facelift improves the appearance of the aging face. It is often the appropriate procedure for women or men who are bothered by excess skin, drooping cheeks and jowls. Modern facelift techniques aim to restore the deep facial tissues to their original position while avoiding the operated-on or “fake” look. You can expect to look more rejuvenated and refreshed without the tell-tale signs of a traditional facelift. Dr. Maia elevates both the skin and tissue to a more youthful position to avoid a stretched, tight or unnatural appearance.

Natural Rhytidectomy Results

More and more of our patients are seeking rhytidectomy, or facelift surgery, to combat aging earlier in their life. Instead of waiting for skin and tissue to sag or droop, many men and women want to address aging issues in their beginning stages. Facelift surgeries vary, depending on the extent of laxity in the skin and tissue. A “mini” facelift or non-surgical facelift can be used in the thirties and forties for many patients with the beginning signs of facial aging. When a conventional facelift is needed, Dr. Maia can perform the needed skin and tissue elevation using advanced methods to create natural, beautiful results.

What to Expect from Your Facelift

Facelift surgery is designed to firm the lower face and upper neck. When the jowls begin to sag, it impacts the jawline, mouth, chin and upper neck. Dr. Maia uses cutting-edge techniques to carefully elevate the skin and underlying tissues to tighten and firm the lower face. This can smooth deeper lines and folds in the skin and create a more youthful look to the face. The goal is to help each patient look like a younger version of themselves, retaining their unique appearance throughout the rejuvenation procedure.

The facelift operation is safe and well-tolerated by patients. Discomfort is minimal and recovery is rapid for most patients. Some degree of bruising and swelling is to be expected. This will resolve in 7-10 days. Activity is limited in the first week following surgery, avoiding strenuous activity for four weeks. Most patients return to work after two weeks.

Dr. Maia utilizes a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation. If you are not ready for surgery, you might benefit from non-invasive treatments. Many patients can improve the signs of aging with Botox®, injectable fillers, microneedling and chemical/laser peels. These treatments can also be done in combination with facelift surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Maia will analyze your face, discuss your goals and recommend a customized treatment plan to achieve your desired look.

If you are ready to explore facelift surgery to rejuvenate the lower face and neck but you want to ensure natural results, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA, to schedule your facelift consultation. We look forward to helping you look your best at every stage of your life. Dr. Maia has the experience and credentials you will want when choosing your plastic surgeon.

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.

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!

I’m not sure where to begin when attempting to explain the positive experience I had with Dr. Maia and her team. It was important for me to find a woman doctor and she comes with so much experience, an eye for detail and aesthetically on point! I felt so well taken care of, even after 2 months post op they still make me feel taken care of. Not only am I thrilled about the physical results, I am also blown away by their care and follow through. I follow Dr.Maia in IG and literally obsessed with her work!

Dr. Maia is truly amazing! She is an artist and somewhat of a magician! She takes the time to listen to you and walk you through the procedure every step of the way! I even texted after with questions and she and her team were very responsive! I was extremely impressed with the work she did around my eyes. Several people now tell me my 20 year old daughter looks just like me….I never heard that prior to the procedure!

Taylor H.

I had one of the most pleasant healthcare experiences I’ve ever had in my life! I came in for excessive underarm sweating and Dr. Maia recommended Botox. She carefully explained everything to me, which I really appreciated as it was my first time ever getting Botox treatment. Her medical assistants were very attentive to my additional questions and made me feel very comfortable while prepping for the treatment. Dr. Maia took her time with me, none of the 5-minute appointments you often get with doctors these days. Everyone was very welcoming and the office is bright and clean. Dr. Maia was referred to me by a family meme we and I’m so glad I went to see her. I absolutely recommend Dr. Maia to anyone and I plan to come back for additional future treatments.

Cynthia S.

I had a tummy tuck, lipo, and a prominent osteoma removed from my forehead. Although I was nervous about the procedures, Dr. Maia and her staff put my fears to rest. Even after the surgery, her professional staff called to check on me during my recovery, which helped put me mind at ease. Dr. Maia and her staff were always professional, responsive, and listened when I had concerns. After the procedures, I was back at work two weeks later and could not be happier with my results. I had a great experience and Dr. Maia will be my first call for any other procedures.

Wanda G.

Dr. Maia is great! She is very knowledgeable! I recommend her to anyone looking to do a cosmetic procedure, breast augmentation, facial lift, etc. Look her up on Instagram so you can see the amazing results from some of her patients!!!!
