Breast enlargement or augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK and, these days, a relatively simple operation which make a huge difference to your confidence and quality of life. The Elena Prousskaia Clinic offers effective, affordable breast enlargement using the finest quality implants in the world. Combined with Elena’s skill and experience you’ll be in the best possible hands. This procedure may be a purely cosmetic treatment or as a part of breast reconstruction surgery.
Choosing the correct size and shape for your breast implants plays an important part in the preliminary conversations you’ll have with Elena. We want you feel completely informed about the process itself, so that you understand how the implant will push or help lift the breast tissue forward to give you the larger, fuller breasts. When you come to the clinic we will discuss the size which may suit your height, body shape and existing breast tissue, while explaining the process. We have never used PIP implants in our practice and consider the quality of the materials of paramount important for your health and well-being. We will plan your surgery together, following a long conversation and examination in the clinic during which time you’ll have all the opportunity you need to learn about your breast enlargement.
Performed under a general anaesthetic, the breast augmentation procedure usually takes around one hour. Elena will make a delicate incision either in the crease beneath the breast, under the arm or around the nipple (areola). The implant is inserted between the breast tissue and chest muscle or behind the chest wall muscle. The particular physiology and medical history of each patient determines the appropriate course of action, and this is something Elena will discuss with you during your consultation.
Recovering from your breast augmentation will depend on several factors including whether your breast implants are being place over or under the muscle.
The Elena Prousskaia Clinic prides itself on the quality of its aftercare so we’ll make absolutely sure you know what to expect, and how much rest is needed. We’ll give you specific instructions that may include how to care for your breasts following surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to follow-up with Elena.

Any surgical procedure comes with risks, but the specific concern for breast augmentation is something called capsular contracture. Elena will talk you through what this is and how she minimises the chance of it happening during your consultation.
Generally speaking this surgery takes around 60-90 minutes, although this varies depending on the nature of the procedure.
After surgery it is normal to experience some discomfort, the level of which varies widely amongst patients. There is rarely prolonged pain unless there is a complication and in all cases you will be prescribed pain medication
