Elena Prousskaia is a world-leading cosmetic surgeon available to perform breast implants in Bristol.

Elena’s CV stands comparison with any surgeon in the UK, male or female; she has held Fellowships at hospitals around the world and been published in leading medical journals.

Her patient-led ethos is also outstanding as demonstrated by the universal five star reviews on Google and IWantGreatCare

This ethos is shown with anyone considering breast implants in Bristol a decision that, as with all other procedures offered by Elena, begins with a lengthy, in-depth consultation. It is important that any patient feels fully informed about the breast implant procedure and that, if they chose to go ahead, the end result matches their expectations from surgery.

In the consultation at one of two Bristol centres, Elena takes the time to explain the process and discusses the size of implant that will lead to the perfect enhancement that works with your height, body shape and existing breast tissue.

Only the highest quality implants are used and Elena has never used PIP breast implants. Her procedures are suitable for breast implants whatever the motivation, though it is worth noting that breast implants cannot rectify significantly sagging or drooping breasts. In these cases, a breast lift might also be required – Elena would discuss this in consultation.

The breast enlargement / augmentation surgery – also known as a Mammaplasty – can be carried out at one of two leading Bristol private health centres.

  • Breast Implants – Two Bristol Centres

    Bristol Spire is located close to the city centre, it is a modern facility with the highest standards of patient care. Bristol Spire is a facility that is demand from the world’s leading surgeons.

    In short, Elena’s CV is unmatched. She has nearly 20 years’ experience and trained for eight years in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. 

    Since her training, she has held Fellowships around the world, these including three years in a highly prestigious placement at Guys and St Thomas’ and then Fellowships in Barcelona, India, Milan and the University Hospital in Tokyo, Japan, seeing the very latest techniques.

    Respected within the profession, she has won numerous awards and also been published in some of the top medical journals. 

    We give you this information – and there is more available on the About page – not to list achievements in a boastful way, but to show that Elena is not only qualified, but truly stands out as a cosmetic surgeon.

    Given the need for expertise, the fact it is your body being operated on and also the cost of surgery, it is essential that any prospective patient puts real thought into finding the right surgeon, not just any surgeon. An initial consultation is not a commitment to using that surgeon, instead it is a chance to check that you can work together to come to a desirable result.

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.

Why Choose Elena Prousskaia?

Ms Elena Prousskaia has been carrying out aesthetic and plastic surgery procedures for more than 20 years. Elena trained for eight years in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and since then has held leading Fellowships around the world and specialised in breast surgery procedures, whether a patient is having the procedure for purely aesthetic reasons or as part of breast reconstruction. As an NHS Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Southmead Hospital, she dedicated several years to complex microsurgical reconstruction and general plastic surgery. During this time at North Bristol Trust, she particularly enjoyed rebuilding patients who suffered from breast cancer giving them their body and confidence back.

Elena Prousskaia consults in several clinics around the South West. Please see the ‘Our Locations’ tab in the menu for exact addresses or call us to discuss your closest location.

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.

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.

EG – Removal & Replacement of Implants

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.

LMS – implant Removal & Replacement

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!
