Breast Reconstruction Consultations in Bristol
Elena always offers lengthy, detailed consultations, this allowing for a full conversation and so she can fully understand the aims of the patient and their hopes from the surgery. Elena can then talk through the available options, outlining the results and also talk through after care and the operation itself.
A second consultation is then common, this allowing the patient time to consider and truly decide if they wish to pursue breast reconstructive surgery.
Of course, it is easy to speak of a surgeon’s ethos and manner, but what do independent reviews state? In Elena’s case, they are universally positive, please take the time to read some of the reviews via the links below.

The facilities used in Bristol are also state of the art, at Bristol Spire, a modern well-equipped modern hospital.
For the breast reconstruction surgery itself, there are a number of different methods available, these of course would be discussed at the consultation.
Considered the gold standard is Autologous Breast Reconstruction or DIEP (tummy from tissue) or TUG (tissue from thigh) flaps. This method leads to a softer and more natural look.
Another option is an implant or Tissue Expander, these offer a faster revery period and shorter stay in hospital.
It is impossible to say which method would be the most suitable without a consultation, this is where the expertise and experience of the surgeon is key, so too their willingness to take the time to truly work with the patient.
