Mastopexy surgery is available in London through acclaimed female cosmetic surgeon, Elena Prousskaia.
Also known as breast uplift surgery, mastopexy is a popular procedure for women who wish to alleviate the impact of breasts drooping or sagging.
The condition can be caused by ageing, through pregnancy or breastfeeding or genetics. The prospective patient may of course not be overly concerned as to the cause, instead just wanting a solution.
One of the leading experts operating in the UK, having held the prestigious Fellowship in Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital in London, Ms Prousskaia has worked with many women to help resolve the sagging.
The impact can be truly profound, not only creating a physical change but also doing so much to boost self-esteem, confidence and sense of self.
Suitability for Mastopexy Surgery in London
Suitability for mastopexy surgery would always be assessed at a detailed consultation, this being your chance to talk and for Elena to listen and then suggest a plan of best action.
Most who have sagging or drooping breasts are likely to be a good candidate, but as a specialist in breast procedures, Elena would advise in the consultation.
It is, of course, impossible to say in a web page whether any one prospective patient would be suitable.
However, please rest assured that Elena will always recommend the best breast treatment and only suggest an option truly in a patient’s best interests.
The Mastopexy Procedure
The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic. The process takes around one or two hours and an overnight stay in hospital would often be required.
Elena would make an incision around the outside of the nipple and then one running in a vertical line from under the nipple.
Excess skin is cut away, the breast tissue reshaped and the nipple repositioned. The wounds are then closed and dressings applied.
While this is a procedure that can be undertaken by many surgeons, results naturally vary by the experience and skill level.
As a specialist in breast procedures, Elena is unmatched.
Final results would be visible after a number of months as scarring and swelling fades and the breasts return to a more natural shape.
Elena would hold regular follow-up appointments and be available to answer any questions or concerns at any time.
Cost and After Care
While the treatment cost of breast uplift varies, Elena is 100% upfront with fees and the cost for surgery would be detailed at consultation – this of course offered with no obligation, the prospective patient given time to go away and think through whether surgery truly is for them.
The treatment cost would be inclusive – surgeon and anaesthetist fees included, so too follow up appointments.

Credentials are of course important, but so too the ethos of the cosmetic surgeon and their ability to truly listen to anyone considering surgery.
Of her ethos, Elena 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 patients’ 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.
The independent reviews back up Elena’s skill as a surgeon and ethos – universally five-star reviews across multiple independent sites.
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.

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!
