Operating out of two centres in Bristol, acclaimed plastic surgeon Elena Prousskaia is able to offer mummy makeovers that restore the body to its youthful pre-pregnancy state and, just as importantly, restore lost confidence.
Maternity is hard work and so too is looking after a new born baby. The new mother might have little time to assess her appearance but when she does it might be to see that the body has changed.
It is common to have lost breast shape and volume, the breasts can appear empty. Pregnancy can also lead to tummy tissue becoming weaker, the problem stemming from skin, muscle and fascia weakening as they are stretched.
What this all combines to create can be a sense that the body is not what it was. There can be concerns over attractiveness to a partner, that clothes no longer fit, or just that years of hard work to keep in shape have been undone. Confidence can be affected, so too self esteem at what should be a wonderful time.
A mummy makeover at either Bristol Spire or Bristol Nuffield, both centres with world class facilities, can restore positive body self image.
We will go on to talk about why Elena Prousskaia stands out among surgeons in Bristol and beyond and also provide information on price, the procedures and before and after images.
A mummy makeover uses a combination of breast lift, liposuction and tummy tuck to restore the body to the pre pregnancy state and all of these can be done on the same day.
For the breasts, sometimes simply tightening the skin is sufficient, on other occasions implants will be required. Elena’s expertise in breast reconstructive surgery meaning the results will always be as desired.
Excess skin and fat will be removed from the tummy to restore the shape, up to 50% of the abdominal skin can be removed, this helping to remove any stretch marks. The belly button will be reshaped, any scars from surgery hidden below the underwear line.
Adjustments can also be made in the genital area, excess skin that can rub being removed and a more youthful look restored.

What Would My Expected Results Be?

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.

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.
