For women who’ve had a breast removed or partially removed, plastic surgery offers a chance to regain your natural figure.

It’s no longer necessary to live with unsightly scars or with an impacted self-image: state of the art breast reconstruction techniques offer surgeons the ability to completely restore your natural silhouette. Here at the Elena Prousskaia Clinic we offer a range of options for those seeking breast reconstruction after masectomy or lumpectomy. Please come in for an informal discussion and we’ll be happy to talk you through how we might help.

Types of Breast Reconstruction Surgery

There are many different methods of breast reconstruction. The option considered a “gold standard of breast reconstruction” is known as Autologous Breast Reconstruction or DIEP (tissue from tummy) or TUG (tissue from thigh)  flaps. Useing your own tissue from tummy, thighs or back can give you a softer and more natural looking breast.

Some patients can opt for an Implant or Tissue Expander which offers a faster recovery and a shorter stay in hospital. We offer both options. Elena will discuss with you, which makes sense for your body and situation. For those who choose the implant/expander option, it is important to choose the right type of implant for you and Elena will guide you in making that decision. Elena only uses high quality implants, considered the best in the market (Allergan and Mentor) and has never used PIP implants in her practice.

Why choose the Elena Prousskaia Clinic

As one of the few female plastic surgeons in the UK, Elena brings a distinctly feminine empathy and skill to the process of helping rebuild a woman’s body after the stress of masectomy.

Trained by UK and international most renowned fellowships in Breast Reconstruction and Breast Oncology, Elena also brings a wealth of experience, a sense of artistry, and a calm professionalism to all her work. The Elena Prousskaia Clinic also prides itself on the quality of its aftercare: we will make every effort to ensure you’re informed, prepared and well looked after throughout the whole procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Breast Reconstruction Surgery Recovery Time ?

The length of your hospital stay depends on the type of operation and how your recovery progresses. If you’ve had implants, the average length of hospitalization is one to two days. Flap procedures require a stay of five to six days. Full recovery can take a lot longer: You should be up and around in 6 to 8 weeks. Elena will talk you through all the necessary pre-surgery investigations, as well as the after-care required. She will also fully explain the risks associated with the procedure. We will only go ahead with the reconstruction operation once you are completely ready and happy with the choice we have made together.

Had surgeon with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!

SM – Abdominoplasty & Arm Lift

From the first consultation with Elena I knew I had chosen well, she explains everything to you in the way a person can understand. I wish I had it done long ago as this has changed my life. I am 100% pleased with the outcome. There are things you have to do to help with healing but this is explained to you. I am now a month on from surgery, Elena is very pleased with my progress. I went to the Spire and all the staff were very kind and professional. The anaesthetist came to talk to me and Elena came to visit me before my surgery. I am forever grateful to Elena for her kindness, understanding and outstanding work as a plastic surgeon.

CW – Breast Reduction

As I write this review I’m led on a sun lounger on holiday in a swimsuit which actually fits me, the first time in years I am not wearing an ill fitted costume with a bra underneath just to hold me up and it’s all thanks to Elena.  I cannot recommend her highly enough! I had thought about a breast reduction for many years but never had the courage to go for it but I am so so pleased I finally decided to go for it, from my initial consultation I knew I was making the right decision. Elena and her PA Heather were great from the beginning talking me through everything and answered any questions I had at any time. Absolutely amazing I can’t thank Elena enough!

CT – Breast Reduction

Obviously having any sort of surgery is a big decision and sometimes a nerve-wracking one but I cannot express how happy I am that I chose Elena as my surgeon. She was attentive, thorough and made me feel so at ease at all times. Thanks to her work ethic and professionalism I knew my surgery would be a success and it was. The after care she provides is also fantastic and I cannot emphasise how happy I am with my choice. Both Elena and her practice team are with you every step of the way and couldn't have been any kinder. So basically- 11/10!

AM – Labiaplasty

If only I'd known about Elena years ago. I'd been wanting to have surgery since I was diagnosed with Tuberous Breasts in puberty. Elena’s before & afters were the best I'd seen, they were all beautifully natural & in-proportion. I felt safe from my first consultation with Elena. She is honest, professional & extremely thorough in her process. The care I received has been superb & her team were brilliant. Now five weeks post-op & I can say the results are better than I ever could have imagined. I'd recommend Elena to anyone who is looking for the best possible experience, especially those looking to have surgery for Tuberous Breasts. It's truly been a life changing gift & I can finally love my body.
