The nose is the central feature of the face, so people often feel self-conscious about even quite small defects.

Rhinoplasty Surgery Process

Elena Prousskaia carries out rhinoplasty surgery to correct/reshape the nose with great care and precision.

In her opinion your nose should look completely natural after surgery, as if it has never been operated on and the size and shape should be in harmony with the rest of your facial features.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Risks Of Rhinoplasty Surgery ?

It is very important to have realistic expectations about the change you are looking for. Nasal swelling can take up to a year to settle down after the operation and the final outcome cannot be completely predicted because internal scarring can subsequently alter the result achieved during surgery. Elena may use an open approach (small scar on the base of your columella – the central partition) or a closed approach (all scars inside the nostrils), depending on the modifications you are seeking. Choosing the right technique is very important and it is a decision which we will make together after a long conversation and examination in my clinic.

What Pre-Surgery And Rhinoplasty Aftercare Is Offered ?

It is normal to then have a second consultation, for you to ask any further questions, once you have had time to consider the different surgical options. 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 operation. Only when we are in complete agreement that the objectives of surgery are in line with your realistic expectations will we go ahead with the operation.

Am I A Candidate For Rhinoplasty ?

In general, rhinoplasty candidates usually meet the final criteria: Healthy patients with no serious medical conditions or illnesses. Patients who do not smoke or have shown that they can stop smoking for a prolonged period of time. Patients who have realistic aesthetic goals. Most rhinoplasty patients are between 18 and 50 years old. Age matters because your face and nose don’t stop developing until your late teens or even later. If you’re too young now, you may become a good candidate in a few years.

Will I Have Visable Scars ?

Cosmetic nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a procedure which, to many patients’ pleasant surprise, leaves very little scarring—or even no visible scarring in some cases.  Closed Rhinoplasty – Incisions are limited to areas within the nostrils, which means you will have no visible scarring.

How Long Will The Swelling Last ?

Expect significant swelling after your nasal surgery.  If nasal bony work is done (infracture of the dorsal hump), swelling can persist for up to 6 months. A splint is often placed for 7 days and packing removed after 48 hours.

Will It Effect My Breathing ?

Breathing through your nose after rhinoplasty tends to become easier as early as one week after surgery. Nasal breathing will improve over the following weeks and will generally feel back to normal by one to two months after surgery.

Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital.  The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands.  The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier.  I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.  

LMS – implant Removal & Replacement

I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery  has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!

JB – Breast Reduction

I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.

EG – Removal & Replacement of Implants

Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.

SM – Abdominoplasty & Liposuction

Had surgery 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!
