If you are looking to restore both your figure and also self confidence following pregnancy, then a mummy makeover in Bath with Elena Prousskaia can be a superb option.
Pregnancy and then being a mother are both wonderful periods, but that isn’t to say either is easy on the body. There is inevitable, healthy weight gain during pregnancy, then the effects of breast feeding and, amidst the pressures of being a mum, it can be impossible to fit in exercise either.
Sometimes, when a mum has the time to actually look in a mirror, they might notice a few changes. Their body might not be quite what it was; breasts might have lost shape and volume, tummy tissue may be weaker and looser.
These issues stem from the skin, muscle and fascia weakening as stretched.
All these changes are natural and far from being a concern health wise, but for some mothers they are unwelcome and there is a desire to reverse the effects. Subtle cosmetic surgery that makes changes that look completely natural, helping to return the body to its former state, can be the best option.
The exact nature of any mummy makeover will vary, Elena would discuss your specific aims during a lengthy consultation close to your Bath home. The commonality is that this is a range of surgeries and procedures combined together, for instance breast lift, liposuction and tummy tuck.

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.
