Elena Prousskaia is an award-winning aesthetic and plastic surgeon with successful clinics in London and throughout the UK offering a wide range of aesthetic and plastic surgery procedures.
Breast enlargement is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the UK and is relatively straightforward when undertaken by a skilled surgeon. The procedure involves the insertion of an implant under the breast tissue or the chest muscle to increase the size of the breast. Many women choose to increase the size of their breasts as they find that it improves their self-confidence and body image.
Why Elena Prousskaia for breast enlargement London?
As one of the very few female plastic surgeons in the UK, Elena brings a feminine perspective to her work with breast surgery patients. Elena understands that women’s breasts can be integral to their feeling of femininity and their self-esteem. This empathy is combined with an award-winning career in plastic and aesthetic surgery spanning nearly two decades, including several years as an NHS Consultant in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. The London clinic is one of several highly successful clinics across the UK, offering a range of aesthetic surgeries.
All breast surgery patients will have a consultation to discuss the procedure and the result they would like from their breast enlargement. The type of implant used will contribute a great deal to the final effect. Implants can be either round or tear-shaped, and Elena will discuss the size and shape of the implant that will best complement your weight, body shape and existing breast tissue.
A general anaesthetic is required for this procedure, and the actual surgery will take about an hour to ninety minutes. The surgeon will insert the implant through an incision in the crease under your breast. Sometimes the incision is made under the arm or around the nipple, depending on your physiology and medical history. You will discuss these surgical decisions during your preoperative consultations with Elena.
How long is recovery time after breast surgery?
You will need to stay in the hospital overnight after breast enlargement in London. Your breasts may feel tight initially, but this is temporary. Most patients find that their pain is well-controlled by the painkillers that the clinic provides, and any discomfort should not last long.
Although breast enlargement surgery is a safe and straightforward procedure, it is essential to give your body time to heal afterwards. For this reason, it is recommended that you should take four weeks off work. Sports and any everyday activities likely to exert the chest area such as hoovering and dog walking should be avoided for four to six weeks after the procedure. More strenuous activity such as weightlifting is best avoided altogether for eight to twelve months. You will be able to discuss your activity level in more detail with Elena at your follow-up appointment.
Most patients find that their incisions heal quickly and the remaining scars should have faded considerably twelve months after the surgery.
How much will the procedure cost?
The initial consultation cost will start at £200, and the total cost of the procedure, hospital stay, and aftercare will start at £6380. However, prices will vary according to your specific requirements and the cost of your surgery will only be confirmed after your initial consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Recovery Time for Breast Augmentation?
Normally, after a one-night stay, you would go home once the drains are removed. You may feel tightness of your breasts after this surgery. This is normal and it will improve gradually. You should avoid all sport activities, housework such as hovering, driving, dog walking for at least 4-6 weeks following surgery and any weight lifting or strenuous activities for up to 8-12 months following the surgery. The visibility of your scars will depend on the technique used and on the biological response of your body to surgery and healing. Generally the scars after this type of surgery are almost invisible by the end of the year. Patients can benefit from taking four weeks off work, and after you have seen Ms Prousskaia for your four weeks follow up you can discuss beginning a gym routine focused on lower body strength.
What Is The Aftercare for Breast Augmentation?
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.

Are There Risks With The Procedure?
While complications with surgery are infrequent, no surgical procedure is without risks. Among the possible complications are scars, infection, haematoma, implant displacement, breast asymmetry and implant rupture. Elena will provide you with further information with the risks and provide you with a detailed consent form during your consultations. This will help you to minimise the risks.
How Long Does A Breast Augmentation Surgery Take?
Generally speaking this surgery takes around 60-90 minutes, although this varies depending on the nature of the procedure.
Is It Painful To get Breast Implants?
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.
What Type Of Implants Are Used?
The shape of implants can be round or anatomical (teardrop). Both can provide an excellent result. The outer shell and the filling may vary depending on the manufacturer. Miss Prousskaia has never used PIP implants in her practice and she will offer you high quality implants from the best manufacturers. You will discuss with Miss Prousskaia which specific shape and size of implant would give you the optimal result. You should know that in the European Union (EU) 95% of implants used for breast augmentation are made of silicone gel and only 5% contains other type of fillings such as saline. Mentor Silicone Gel-Filled Breast Implants are devices with shells constructed from silicone elastomer. The shell is filled with MemoryGel®, Mentor’s proprietary formulation of silicone gel.

What Would My Expected Results Be?
Elena prides herself on taking the time to truly understand a patient’s aims and discussing what result will work best given the patient’s body shape and size. Although good results are expected, the body is not symmetric and almost everyone has some degree of unevenness, which may not be recognized in advance. The more realistic your expectations as to results, the better your results will be in your eye. You will have at least two consultations with Elena where she ensures that she meets your expectations and she will always try to achieve your desired results.
The total cost of the surgery will be confirmed after the first consultation.
The cost includes the hospital, surgeon and anaesthetic fees. It also covers all post-operative visits. The initial consultation fee will be invoiced separately. The prices apply only at the time of publication and are subject to changes without notification.
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
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.

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
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.

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!
