Facelift Surgery in Northern Virginia

Learn about the procedure, its benefits, and why you should choose Dr. Maia for your transformation.


Your face is an important feature that reflects how you feel inside to the world. Many of our patients tell us they look much older than they feel on the inside, and come to Dr. Maia to help balance their outward portrayal with their inner-self.

Dr. Maia is an award-winning, board certified plastic surgeon in the Washington D.C. area. 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 and Deep Plane Facelift techniques, which give a natural look and adds longevity to the results.

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.

Life Changing Results Beyond Expectations

A surgical facelift 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.

  • Very natural results without an “over pulled” look.
  • The scars are discreet. No one will ever know you had a procedure done.
  • This technique is customizable and can be adjusted to different face shapes with varying amounts of fat and laxity of skin & muscle.
  • This facelift technique provides an excellent long-term result (about seven to 12 years) with a low risk of major complications.



Dr. Maia uses cutting-edge techniques to carefully elevate the skin and underlying tissues to tighten and firm the lower face with the facelift procedure. This can smooth deeper lines and folds in the skin and create a more youthful look to the face.

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.

    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.

    Dr. Maia, Alana, and Kristina are talented, knowledgeable, and attentive. Great results, great support, and very responsive to any questions. Would recommend to anyone looking to improve their quality of life!

    Erez D.

    Dr Maia is the consummate plastic surgeon. From her compassion to exceptional surgical skill and results, there is no better. Would give 10 stars if I could.

    Deise G.

    I had a great experience with doctor Maia. Beyond my expectations.

    Nate R.

    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.
