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.

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.

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.

Kerri L.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Caroline H.

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.

Karen D.

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.

Justine A.

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!
