A variety of health conditions can cause lesions on the skin. Not only can sores and lesions cause health concerns, they also have an aesthetic impact when on the face, neck or exposed areas on the body. Dr. Munique Maia is a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of Maia Plastic Surgery. Dr. Maia offers skin lesion removal to reduce health risks and improve the appearance of the skin for patients at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.

A skin lesion can be any growth or sore on the skin that has abnormal cells. This can include rashes, cysts, bumps, patches and sores that appear on the skin. While most skin lesions do not pose a serious risk to health, it is important to be aware of new skin lesions and ensure they are not a symptom of a more serious disease.

The majority of skin lesions are benign, but they can impact the appearance of the skin. Dr. Maia can carefully remove most types of skin lesions in an outpatient procedure with local anesthetic. Her skill in using techniques to reduce scarring and deformity to the skin and tissue is important when removing skin lesions on the face or other exposed areas.

Skin Cancer Plastic Surgery

Skin cancer is one of the most common causes of lesions, often occurring on the face and neck due to the amount of sun exposure in these areas. Some skin growths or lesions are considered pre-cancerous or higher risk for cancer and should be removed as a preventive measure. Other lesions may be cancerous and need removal before the cancer spreads. Dr. Maia works with patients and their dermatologist or medical team to remove skin lesions and skin cancer growths while protecting the aesthetics of the skin. Dr. Maia can also perform reconstruction after skin cancer removal to reduce scarring and restore the appearance of skin and features.

If you need or want a skin lesion removed but are concerned with scarring or deformity of the skin, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in the greater Washington, DC, area to schedule an appointment. Dr. Maia can remove various types of skin lesions and cancerous growths while protecting the appearance of the skin.

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.

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!
