Ms Prousskaia has held world leading Fellowships, including at London’s prestigious Guys and St Thomas’ and has a wide range of specialisms, including microsurgical breast reconstruction and helping those who have suffered with breast cancer.
In truth, she should not be considered just one of London’s top female cosmetic surgeons as she is regarded as a top global surgeon full stop – regardless of gender.
However, while you can compare all surgeons for their skills, expertise and experience, there are often specific reasons to consider a female surgeon.
All surgeons should be empathetic and make their prospective patient feel at ease, but there are many conditions and concerns where it is natural to seek out a female surgeon.
An example might be a concern such as tuberous or asymmetrical breasts, or breast reconstruction.
Alternatively, it might be issues related to your figure post pregnancy and childbirth, or maybe it is the signs of ageing that can become apparent.
A female surgeon may more naturally understand the impact, they understand the importance of such issues and how they impact not just on appearance but also confidence and sense of self esteem and self worth.
This is why it can be important to seek a female cosmetic surgeon in London and, among all of those, Ms Prousskaia stands apart.
In this page, we will provide details about Elena’s expertise and experience. We will also provide information on her specialisms, areas of interest and conditions she can help to treat.

Cosmetic Surgery Procedures in London
Ms Prousskaia is experienced in all aspects of cosmetic surgery and uses the latest and best techniques, these from one of London’s best equipped private hospitals.
The process actually begins a stage earlier with a thorough consultation, this is a step of vital importance in all forms of surgery.
As a patient you will likely only know that there is a condition or concern you want treated, you will not know the names of the procedures or the techniques any surgeon would use.
The consultation is your chance to talk through your aspirations for surgery and also your journey to this stage, and for the London plastic surgeon to listen.
Ms Prousskaia would be able to recommend a plan of best action, this also based on your full medical history.
A second consultation is common, this an opportunity to ask any follow-up questions; it also allows you to make a decision as to whether to proceed free of any pressure.
Ms Prousskaia has no interest in pushing people towards surgeries that are not truly of benefit.
The consultation exists to find that perfect match – helping you find someone who understands your concerns and has the skills to then create the change you seek.
The Benefit of Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery should lead to a better you.
It can create the physical change you seek, but also have huge benefits related to self-esteem, confidence and mental health.
Issues relating to our body and appearances can be distressing, a remedy truly life enhancing, impacting work, relationships and all aspects of life.
The results of cosmetic surgery should look natural, producing the change you seek but without the obvious look of work having been done. You will look a great you, but still you.
Ms Prousskaia understands that the appearance of very visible cosmetic surgery can be every bit as upsetting as the issue may have been pre-surgery.
Ms Prousskaia’s Ethos
The skill and experience of any cosmetic surgeon matter greatly, but so too does their ethos. This perhaps is in part why many opt for a leading female plastic surgeon when assessing options in London.
Of her ethos, Ms Prousskaia says:
Experience and skill are of course of vital importance, but so too is the surgeon’s ethos and their manner with patients.
You have to feel confident that the surgeon you entrust understands you, why you are seeking surgery and can empathise.
After all, cosmetic surgery is often about so much more than the purely aesthetic. Successful surgery can boost confidence and self esteem, an issue that may have been a cause for concern for years or decades can be rectified.
This can be as true for breast reconstruction as it is for a procedure such as ear pinning.
It is truly wonderful to see the impact in terms of confidence and sense of self.
It is perhaps this level of empathy that persuades many to specifically seek a female cosmetic surgeon. In some instances, they can just understand the impact of a condition or concern better than may be the case for a male counterpart.
Of her ethos, Ms Prousskaia 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 patient’s 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.
I consider myself very lucky to be able to share my passion for what I do and hopefully bring a bit more happiness into my patients’ lives.”

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!
