By Elena Prousskaia MD, FRCS (Plast), FEBOPRAS

Elena Prousskaia offers cosmetic and plastic surgery near Paddington from her clinic within the prestigious London Welbeck Hospital.

Elena is a highly regarded cosmetic surgeon who has been improving lives with cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures for more than two decades.

After a career as an NHS Consultant plastic surgeon, Elena now has several thriving private clinics offering a comprehensive range of aesthetic surgery procedures.

Elena believes that successful plastic surgery can transform your appearance, improve self-confidence, and restore your zest for life.


The Elena Prousskaia Clinic: the number one choice for cosmetic and plastic surgery near Paddington

After qualifying as a doctor, Elena’s early training was in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery with a focus on Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction and Breast Oncoplastic Surgery. Her interest in this area led her to work with women who required reconstructive breast surgery after treatment for breast cancer.

Elena is still renowned for the stunning results she achieves in breast reconstructions, but she has also become the first choice for many women looking for other types of breast surgery, including breast augmentation and breast reduction procedures.

Elena always strives for a natural result in her work and the artistry and sensitivity she brings to her surgery have earned her many delighted patients.

The demand for her services is so high that she now has several thriving private clinics in south and central England as well as her busy cosmetic surgery clinic near Paddington.

You can read some testimonials from delighted patients here.


What is the purpose of the initial consultation at the Elena Prousskaia clinic near Paddington?

The initial consultation is the start of your journey to higher self-esteem and a more positive body image. 

Elena will listen carefully to your concerns about your body or face. She will give you an honest appraisal of how surgery could help you. She will also discuss what the procedure will involve and what your recovery will look like.

Elena believes that patients who are fully informed about their procedure find the experience less stressful and recover more quickly. They are also more satisfied with the final results.

It is natural to be nervous about surgery, but Elena will support you through the process and beyond until you fully recover.

Elena will examine you during the initial consultation and take a detailed medical history.


Cosmetic surgery for the breast

Elena’s experience as a specialist in microsurgical breast reconstruction and the excellent rapport she develops with patients have brought many women to the Paddington clinic to consult her about breast surgery. Breast augmentation with implants is one of her most frequently performed cosmetic procedures. 

It is still unusual to find a female cosmetic surgeon, but Elena regards this as an advantage as she understands how essential the appearance of the breasts can be to feelings of self-worth for many women.

Women’s breasts can change during their life due to childbearing, age or previous breast surgery. These changes can affect self-esteem as they affect a woman’s sense of her own appeal.

Elena can help with a range of aesthetic and reconstructive surgical procedures:

Frequently Asked Questions

Are You Considering A Tuberous Breast Correction?

Many of Elena’s tuberous breast patients have felt self-conscious about the issue since puberty, which is when this issue manifests. If you are concerned that your breasts are either not developing normally, or have never reached their shape, we suggest you book a confidential discussion with Elena to discuss whether this surgery might be appropriate for you.

Is Tuberous Breast Surgery Right For You?

If any of the following characteristics feel true, then it is likely this is the correct surgical procedure. Of course, this can be confirmed following a detailed discussion with Elena: • Elongated or coned Breasts
• Narrower breast base
• The fold beneath your breast (inframammary crease) is high
• Prominent enlarged areola.

What Are The Risks Of Tuberous Breast Surgery?

While complications with surgery are infrequent, no surgical procedure is without risks. Among the possible complications are scars, infection, haematoma, implant displacement, breast asymmetry, implant rupture and capsular contracture. 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.

What Is The After Care For Tuberous Breast Surgery?

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. Elena will also advise you on a specialised garment bra which will also help with your recovery.

Will I Be Able To Wear A Normal Bra?

Tuberous breast correction ensures that patient gains missing volume especially in the lower pole of the breasts, which tend to be short of skin and breast tissue. Once the lower pole of the breast becomes rounder and fuller a bra would normally fit well.

How Do You Fix Tuberous Breast?

The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic. The length of surgery is between 2-3 hours however this is dependent on the complexity of surgery. The placement of scars will depend on your preference and the recommendation. The missing volume is restored with implants after breast remodelling is completed, normally as part of the same procedure. Areola reduction can be performed through periareolar approach, with a scar around the nipple areola complex. The Implant often can be introduced through the scar using a Keller funnel resulting in minimal scaring.  Very rarely in severe grade of tuberosity a two stage surgery may be needed. In these rare cases, tissue expanders would be placed first to stretch the tissue and at the second stage it would be replaced with implants.

What Does This Procedure Cost?

Please scroll down for more information on pricing.

What Is The Recovery Time For Tuberous Breast Surgery?

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 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.

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!
