Elena is a renowned cosmetic surgeon who offers excellent and natural-looking results.
Many of Elena’s patients are unhappy with the way that the passage of time has affected their facial appearance. Ageing happens to all of us eventually, but Elena understands that looking fresh and youthful is essential for your self-esteem.
Why choose Elena Prousskaia as your facial surgeon in Bristol?
Elena has had a stellar career as a cosmetic and plastic surgeon for over two decades.
She is one of the top plastic surgeons in the UK and was a consultant plastic surgeon in the NHS for many years working in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.
Elena has travelled widely to learn new surgical techniques and has made her own contributions with her pioneering work in plastic surgery.
She is held in high regard by her fellow aesthetic surgeons and holds many international awards and certificates, in microsurgery, breast surgery, lymphoedema and all aspects of cosmetic surgery.
Elena now has several private cosmetic surgery clinics in the UK. She offers a full range of cosmetic procedures including breast augmentation, breast reduction and reconstructive surgery.
As a woman, Elena is quite a rarity among aesthetic plastic surgeons and she brings a feminine sensitivity to her work. She is renowned for her surgical skill but also for the artistry of her plastic surgery and the stunning but natural results that she creates.
Patients love Elena’s compassionate and friendly manner. She understands that having surgery involves a big decision and will give you the time to talk about the benefit of a facelift and other treatments available.
You can find testimonials from some of her delighted patientshere.
Young skin is firm and smooth. This fresh look is created by high levels of collagen and elastin in the lower levels of the skin. These vital substances make the skin plump and elastic so that it can spring back into place.
As you age, your collagen and elastin production slows, and vital stores are lost. You may notice your skin becoming slacker and your facial features losing definition. Gravity takes its toll, and your skin begins a downward trajectory with lines around the eyes, mouth and nose deepening.
Don’t despair – with Elena’s help you can take control of the ageing process.
How can aesthetic surgery help?
Skincare can only do so much, but the surgical facelift can dramatically improve the way you look – and feel.
In Elena’s skilled hands, a facelift can be life-changing. It will transform your face, making its contours more defined and your skin look firmer and smoother.
Elena’s cosmetic procedures will enhance your natural beauty without making your skin look taut or overdone.
How do aesthetic plastic surgeons perform a facelift?
During a facelift, Elena makes an incision and detaches the facial skin from the deeper structures, pulling it gently up and backward, trimming the excess skin.
A bespoke facelift
During the procedure, Elena may use a combination of techniques to achieve the desired result.
For example, she may take the opportunity to redefine your facial contours and restore fullness to your features using fat transfer from elsewhere on your body.
Many people develop a pad of fat under the chin as they age. Elena often uses liposuction to remove these stubborn fat deposits.
If you have unsightly neck bands, Elena can remove them by tightening the muscles under the skin of your neck.
Every facelift is a bespoke procedure. During your surgery, Elena will address the individual way in which your face is ageing and restore your features to a fresher, more youthful-looking version of your best self.
How long does it take to recover from plastic surgery on the face?
Like all surgical procedures, your facelift will carry a risk of bruising and numbness which can last up to 14 days.
Once the healing process is finished, you will be delighted with your face’s smooth and lifted appearance.
Your surgery scars will be placed so discreetly that it will be difficult to find them.
When is the best age for facelift surgery?
People age at different rates but you may start to think about plastic surgery when you notice the first signs of ageing.
This may be when your skin starts to lose its firmness and begins to wrinkle or when you notice that your features are starting to lose definition. Many of Elena’s patients notice these changes first around the eyes, neck and jawline.
Ms Prousskaia will be very honest in her appraisal of your need for surgical intervention. She will tell you if surgery is the best option for you or make other suggestions about how to make you more confident with your appearance.
Are there any alternatives to a facelift?
Ms Prousskaia may decide that you are not yet a good candidate for a surgical facelift.
Alternatively, you may be better suited to a thread lift; a non-surgical intervention that provides excellent results for skin that has minimal sagging. The thread lift is performed without general anaesthetic.
The cost of facelift surgery depends on which techniques Elena decides to use to achieve the best results for you and will be confirmed when you have had your consultation.
A typical cost for surgery including the services of an anaesthetist, your hospital stay, aftercare and follow-up appointments is around £15 950.
The cost of your initial consultation is between £200 and £250.

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.
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!
