Breast Implants are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available in Bath, with surgery possible at leading local private hospitals.
Also known as a mammaplasy the process of breast enlargement and the formation of firmer, more youthful breasts is a relatively straightforward procedure.
However, that is not to say all implants are equal and that all surgeons have the same level of experience and manner with prospective patients.
A breast implant can address issues of lack of volume, under developed breasts or even out breasts that are not symmetrical.
The breast implants can be for purely cosmetic reasons or as part of a breast reconstruction, the results boost physical appearance but can also help tackle issues of lack of self esteem and negative self image.
Breast Implants Bath – Key Information
In Bath, breast implants and cosmetic surgery are available at the Bath BMI Hospital, a superb private hospital with easy transport links. It has 67 rooms, each well equipped, and is a relaxing base for any overnight stays that are required.
The exact nature of the surgery, length of the procedure and aftercare will vary on a patient-by-patient basis, this because the nature of the surgery will be different.
Key to the very best results is the skill of the surgeon, their specific expertise in breast surgery and also how surgeon and patient discuss options during consultation.
In these areas, Elena Prousskaia is the stand out surgeon in Bath and the south.
One of the few female cosmetic surgeons in the UK and a leading surgeon of either sex, Elena specialises in breast surgery – she has held the prestigious Fellowship in Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction at London’s Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital.
In her 20-year career, Elena has also held Fellowships in Italy, Spain, Belgium, India and the stunning University Hospital in Tokyo.
She has won awards and been published in leading medical journals.
Such accomplishments are not mentioned to boast, but instead to demonstrate her credentials as a leading cosmetic surgeon.
Breast Implants – Treating Patients With Empathy
Just as importantly, Elena strives to always deliver the best results for any patient. This process begins with an extremely thorough initial consultation. This is the opportunity for the prospective patient to talk through their aims for surgery and Elena to analyse the best options.
As Elena says:
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.
It is of course easy to speak of a superb ethos, but Elena’s is demonstrated through the independent reviews given to her by pat patients.

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!
