Normal breasts sag due to advanced age, pregnancy, and stretching of the breast skin from weight gain or loss. Women seeking a breast lift and augmentation in our Las Vegas, NV office most often relate a wish to regain the fullness as well as “perkiness” from their late teens and early twenties. To correct the issue of volume and/or fullness loss in the breast, breast augmentation with a breast lift is often recommended.
Breast implants work well to restore lost volume. In some rare cases, an implant alone may lift the breast without the need for a breast lift (mastopexy). At Stile Aesthetics, Plastic Surgeon Dr. Frank L. Stile will personally meet with you to discuss your cosmetic concerns to create the best treatment plan possible.
During the procedure, excess skin is trimmed away and tightened to create a perky chest appearance and silicone implants are used to enhance the breasts. A silicone or saline breast implant is used to enhance the breast’s upper pole (top of the breast) fullness.
The placement of an implant under the pectoralis muscle will greatly enhance the fullness of the upper breast by filling out this space while also improving breast projection. It is important to note that the additional weight may accelerate the rate of breast ptosis should the implant be placed above the muscle.
Dr. Stile will discuss the procedure in great detail during your initial consultation, along with the many shapes and sizes of silicone implants that are available. Generally, the time of the procedure varies but often lasts 1 – 2 hours.

*Individual Results May Vary
Women with sagging (ptotic) breasts accompanied by a loss of fullness of the top portion of their breasts or generalized volume loss are good candidates for this combined procedure. However, ideal candidates:
Since excess skin is trimmed away and implants are used to enhance the breasts, the results may yield a more youthful appearance.
Strenuous activity should be avoided for the following 48 hours after surgery. Soreness and swelling are normal but these symptoms will subside within 4 – 6 weeks.
Follow-up appointments will be scheduled accordingly to ensure proper healing. It’s important to adhere to all post-operative instructions provided by your plastic surgeon.
