Welcoming, transformative, and lifelong are the three words that Haute Beauty expert Dr. Munique Maia uses to describe the vibe of her plastic surgery office. Maia Plastic Surgery represents decades of experience and Dr. Maia's vision to offer the latest technologies and techniques in plastic surgery so patients can feel their best and look the most natural. Here Haute Beauty sat down with Dr. Maia to ask her a range of questions. From the mission of Maia Plastic Surgery to her most requested procedure, this is what we found out.

What inspired you to open Maia Plastic Surgery?

I always wanted to provide the best experience to my patients and having my own practice allows me to have control of all the important details.

The mission of Maia Plastic Surgery:

When I opened Maia Plastic Surgery, I had a vision of providing patients the convenience of all their aesthetic needs in one place, from medical-grade skincare, and non-invasive treatments to aesthetic surgery.

Most popular services:

Men and women of all ages come to my practice to address a variety of aesthetic concerns they have. Teenagers, their concern is usually acne scars and overall skin health. For patients who are not ready for surgery but want to reshape their noses, I do liquid rhinoplasty with fillers for an instant nose job.

Patients in their twenties generally come for breast augmentations, breast reductions, liposuction, and fillers. Popular non-invasive procedures for mid-thirties and up include microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), Morpheus 8 (microneedling with radiofrequency), and lasers to improve skin quality and reduce the visibility of fine lines, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation.

It’s also becoming increasingly popular for people to start Botox in their mid-twenties. Botox can start as a preventative measure and also can be used to minimize the signs of aging. The oldest patient I have is 95 and she comes in for Botox injections.

Tummy tucks, liposuction, and breast lifts are popular for women ages 35-45 who want body contouring after childbirth. Depending on the elasticity of the skin, people ages 45-50 come in for facelifts or mini facelifts. For ages 50 and up, popular services are full face and neck lifts, facial rejuvenation, and fat grafting to the face.

What is the future of plastic surgery?

Transparency is in. I notice a trend of patients coming in who do not want to keep their procedures hidden, but rather see their treatments as a means of self-care and quality of life. I see many of my patients openly talking about their experiences on Instagram. One woman recently posted a picture of her face just 5 days after her face-lift. She wrote that she wished there wasn’t such a stigma behind plastic surgery, and wanted to let everyone know that she was treating herself to a facelift. I think that the more people are transparent about their procedures, plastic surgery will no longer be a taboo topic, but rather a means of self-care and improving self-image. People will be more open to discussing their options, be more educated about procedures, and misinformation will be less. I think the future will have plastic surgeons at the forefront of wellness, beauty, and self-care. I hope that more patients will benefit from the changes that I see on a daily basis in my office.

Maia Plastic Surgery is best known for...

I am best known for providing my patients with natural-looking results. I always tell my patients that aging is a privilege. Some people just have different aesthetic preferences, and I am here to help them achieve their desired look without looking overdone.

What is unique about Maia Plastic Surgery?

The first thing you will notice when you call or come to my clinic is the warm, welcoming environment with my knowledgeable clinic team. We are an all-female staff, which is important to many female patients who sometimes feel uncomfortable with male staff. We understand the concerns of our patients and we are always available to answer questions.

New services you are excited to offer:

I’m happy that my clinic provides an extensive list of services, using the latest technologies such as surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation, body sculpting, intimate plastic surgery, and breast augmentation. I offer Morpheus8 and Bodytite / Facetite to deliver the best and safest results with a new approach to skin tightening. Morpheus8, Facetite, and Bodytite get energy into the skin, without damaging it or requiring extended downtime to provide tighter, healthier skin results for patients. This technology delivers radiofrequency that promotes collagen production and skin tightening. I utilize cutting-edge cosmetic procedures to help my patients look their best at any age. These are among the newest and most powerful tools for skin tightening, and I can control the energy to achieve the best results for my patients.

An underrated service that doesn’t receive as much press as it should:

Fat grafting to the face is an underrated service that many people might not know about. Facial fat grafting transfers fat from a secondary location such as the stomach, back, or thighs, and injects it into areas of the face where you want more volume. It is a quick way to restore plumpness to the face more permanently than fillers and it offers the most natural results safely with little downtime. I can perform this procedure in my office in one hour.
