About Augmentation + Lift
As many women age, they may lose fullness in their breasts while others may begin to notice excess breast skin. Some women will have both problems that lead to sagging, deflated breasts. If you would like to increase breast volume while also eliminating loose skin, plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Costa can perform a breast augmentation surgery plus a breast lift (mastopexy). This procedure at Platinum Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV begins by removing loose skin from the breasts and then placing silicone or saline implants to get to your goal size. Breast surgery with a lift and augmentation addresses multiple concerns, such as position, shape, and size to create younger, perkier-looking breasts. Make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Costa to go over your unique goals and needs, so he can help you decide if a combination breast augmentation and lift best fits your goals.

In most cases, the lift portion of the surgery is done first. The excess skin is eliminated and the soft tissue is smoothed. Dr. Costa will explain the options available for breast implants before your surgery so your implants will be ready for placement. In certain patients, the nipple-areola complex may be moved to match your new breast shape and size.
