● What is Brest Lifting ?
The breast lift that Dr. Cengizhan Ekizceli performs, is a cosmetic surgery for patients who complain about their breasts to help them to enhance the shape of the breasts, restore their youthful shape, and boost their self-image and self-confidence after giving birth, breastfeeding, and the weight-loss .
A breast lift can be done in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction. If the breasts are large, excess skin and breast tissue are removed, and the nipple is brought to where it should be. In the case of small breasts, silicone prostheses are used.
● Who is a good candidate for Breast Lifting?
Dr. Cengizhan Ekizceli explains that the first candidate is having big breasts as soon as they start to affect the patient’s life.
Likewise, patients who complain of sagging breast tissue and lack self-confidence in social life are good candidates too.
On the other hand, there is the age restriction, only patients who are older than eighteen can have the surgery.
● How is Breast Lifting performed?
Dr. Cengizhan Ekizceli performs the Breast Lift procedure under general anesthesia, it takes about 2 – 2.5 hours.
In this surgery, the first thing that we do is extract the excess breast tissue and send it to the pathology department, so they can examine for any possible problems.
later, the breasts are reshaped and the excess breast tissue and skin are removed to improve breast contour, then the nipple and areola are repositioned to a natural height.

After the surgery, the patient is taken to a service room and monitored for one night. Then the patient starts to wear a special corset and the drains are removed after 3 days so the patient can return to daily life.
● Does the surgery leave any scars?
Dr. Cengizhan Ekizceli declares that it depends on the used technique. It can be around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease, or around the areola vertically down from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease.
● How is the type of scars determined?
It is determined by the surgical technique and by the size of the breast in this technique, but there are always scars after the surgery.
They become hardly noticeable over time, since patients get rid of the weight, they don’t really concerned about the scars.
● Is breastfeeding possible after Breast Lift surgery?
Since the breast tissues are removed, the breast size is also reduced, so there will be a decrease in the amount of milk, but the operation doesn’t affect the breastfeeding ability, so you can breastfeed in the recovery period as well.
● How long does recovery period take?
Approximately, one week rest is enough, after that patients can return to their daily life.
