A tummy tuck in Bath is a hugely popular procedure, one that leads to a flatter stomach and abdomen and can also boost confidence and self esteem.
Also known by its medical term, abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck can help restore a more youthful figure, undo the effects of child birth and remove fat that can be hard to shift even through diet and regular exercise.
The effect, as well as physical, is often psychological too with confidence restored and with it potentially self esteem boosted. For many people, any body issues can lead to a lack of confidence and potentially impact on a wide range of areas in their life – relationships, how attractive they feel to their partner and also confidence in the workplace.
A tummy tuck has the potential to make a large difference to overall quality of life.
The impact, though, depends on the surgeon – both their skill but also their ethos and their manner with patients.
There are many fine cosmetic surgeons working in Bath and the south west, but Elena Prousskaia’s reputation and CV are unmatched.

Elena’s approach is summed up in her quote:
“The one thing that matters most to me when I am with a patient is empathy.
“It is only when you are able to identify and understand your patients problems that you can begin to help resolve them satisfactorily. A good surgical outcome is not the only thing that matters. Everything that you do and say to a patient has to come from your heart.
“I consider myself very lucky to be able to share my passion for what I do and hopefully bring a bit more happiness into my patients’ lives.
