Are you struggling with Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH)? Look no further than Maia Plastic Surgery in Washington D.C. for advanced and effective PAH treatment options. Our expert plastic surgeons are committed to helping you achieve the desired results and regain your confidence.

Understanding Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH)

Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia is a rare but frustrating complication that can occur following cryolipolysis or non-invasive fat reduction treatments. Instead of reducing fat deposits, PAH causes the affected area to enlarge, leading to an unanticipated aesthetic outcome. While PAH is a rare condition, it can significantly impact your self-esteem and body image.

Specialized PAH Treatment at Maia Plastic Surgery

At Maia Plastic Surgery, we recognize the physical and emotional challenges associated with PAH. Our team of highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeons specializes in providing effective and tailored treatments to address this specific concern. We prioritize patient safety, satisfaction, and the attainment of natural-looking results.

Personalized Treatment Approach

Every patient is unique, and at Maia Plastic Surgery, we believe in personalized care. During your initial consultation, our board-certified plastic surgeons will carefully evaluate your condition, considering your medical history and individual goals. This comprehensive assessment allows us to develop a customized treatment plan that best suits your needs.

Advanced Treatment Options

Our clinic utilizes state-of-the-art technology and advanced techniques to treat PAH effectively. We offer a range of treatment options, including:

  • Surgical Liposuction: For severe cases of PAH, surgical liposuction may be recommended. Our skilled surgeons employ the latest techniques to remove excess fat and contour the affected area, providing you with a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing outcome.
  • Non-Surgical Solutions: For mild to moderate cases, we offer non-surgical approaches to address PAH. These may include laser-assisted liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, or radiofrequency-assisted liposuction, which help reduce the enlarged adipose tissue without the need for invasive surgery.

J. B.

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.

Karli N.

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.

David 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.
