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.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
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.

WHAT TO EXPECT
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.
