If diet and exercise won’t shift that stubborn fat, then it may be time to consult the Elena Prousskaia Clinic about having lipo in London.
Despite our best efforts, we can’t all achieve the body we want. Lifestyle changes may have little impact on a body that has been shaped by the genes that we have inherited or changed by the ageing process. Liposuction offers a surgical solution to stubborn fat deposits and can help to restore your confidence in your appearance.
Elena Prousskaia is one of the UK’s most highly regarded aesthetic surgeons. She has several highly successful clinics in the UK and is one of the leading providers of cosmetic surgery in London.
Why choose the Elena Prousskaia Clinic for your lipo procedure in London?
Liposuction is a major procedure, but you can have complete confidence in the expertise and skill of Ms Elena Prousskaia. Elena has been working as a successful plastic and cosmetic surgeon for more than two decades, both as an award-winning NHS Consultant and a private practitioner with her own chain of clinics. Elena is renowned for her surgical expertise and the artistry of her work. She also has a reputation for treating all her patients with friendliness and compassion. Elena uses liposuction sparingly and sensitively to sculpt her patients’ bodies, reducing small areas of fat. She is exceptionally skilled at recontouring the hip and thigh area, which is excellent news for the many pear-shaped women among us. Elena does not undertake high volume liposuction for weight loss, believing that such procedures are dangerous and damaging to the health. Elena’s London clinic is based in the renowned Welbeck Hospital near Harley Street.
Ms Prousskaia makes small incisions of 5mm in length in the area being treated. Fat is removed through multiple cannulas inserted into the incisions. Many of Elena’s patients have treatment on the inner and outer thighs, the stomach, abdomen, hips, knees, and chin. Elena uses liposuction to improve the contours of the body. She can significantly improve the size and shape of the area around the hips and thighs, which is such a problem area for so many women.
Liposuction can take up to three hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. Most procedures require a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay. However, If the site to be treated is small, then Ms Prousskaia may treat you as a day patient using a local anaesthetic instead.
You can see some before and after liposuction pictures here.
How long will it take to recover from liposuction?
You will experience some tenderness after surgery and will need to wear an elasticated support garment for a few weeks. Ms Prousskaia will review your progress at regular consultations for the first year after your surgery. Scarring is minimal after liposuction, and when you have fully recovered from your surgery, you will be delighted with your new shape. You will be able to fit into more fitted clothing, and you will have far more confidence in your appearance.
Is Lipo fat-reducing surgery safe?
Liposuction is very safe in the hands of an experienced surgeon like Elena Prousskaia. However, as with all surgeries, there is a risk of bleeding and bruising. All patients have a very detailed consultation before the surgery involving a discussion of their expectations and thorough medical history.
The cost of lipo in London
All patients have an initial consultation which costs £250. The total cost of the surgery starts at £4950 and is dependent on the number and size of the areas to be treated. Please note that this is a guide price only and that Ms Prousskaia will confirm the cost after her consultation with you.

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.

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!
