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 excised using one of the three previously discussed techniques ( donut, lollipop or anchor) 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 overall shape, projection and 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. Smaller implants are encouraged.
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 3-3.5 hours.
Take the first step. Get your questions answered and find out which treatment option is best for your concerns by meeting with Dr. Frank Stile at Stile Aesthetics for an in-person consultation.

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:
Patients can appreciate fuller- lifted more youthful looking breasts.
Breast Lift with Augmentation surgery takes approximately 3.5 hours. After surgery, patients can expect to feel chest soreness and pressure. They will be given post-surgical care instructions and pain medication will be prescribed. Each lift-augmentation patient will leave in a sports bra and clean surgical dressings. There may be some bruising and swelling for about 1 – 3 weeks.
It is recommended that patients only participate in very light activity for the first 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, patients may advance activity but must avoid heavy lifting and resistance training. Most patients experience a full recovery between weeks 4 and 8, and may resume full activity and exercise. Final results, were breasts look and feel natural, can be appreciated after three months.
