LPA extension plasty


Explanation:
Extension plasty gets a few Googles, as does LPA plasty. Didn't find the combination, however.
Augmentation would be to make something larger, in my opinion.

Grading comment
Extension plasty only gets Googles from non-English sites, it clearly doesn't exist as an English term. I stuck with extension in the end, as I think the German term covers both grafts and implants, and it seemed sufficiently, but not over, clear.
