Mummy Makeover East Grinstead – Highest Rated
Elena has a stunning CV coupled with an ethos if truly listening to patients, discussing their requirements and always being there for them. That is why her rating from independent reviews on Google is a perfect five out of five, former patients speaking of her skill, manner and level of care.
As 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.”
Of course, any cosmetic needs the experience and technical skills too. Elena has been a cosmetic surgeon for approaching 20 years. She has held Fellowships around the world, including three years in the UK at institutions including Guys and St Thomas’ in London, with a focus on microsurgical breast reconstruction.
Other fellowships have been held in Barcelona, Italy, India and Tokyo, all demonstrating Elena’s standing as a truly renowned cosmetic surgeon. She delivers a level of experience and proven ability for Mummy Makeovers and other procedures that is simply unmatched in East Grinstead and beyond.
If you were to entrust Elena with your Mummy Makeover, you would first have a lengthy, in-depth consultation.
This will cover all aspects of the procedures, what the outcomes will be, the recovery process and any concerns you might have. You will be able to talk about why you want the surgery – is it to restore confidence, to return the body to how it was, to feel better in yourself?
Pregnancy is a wonderful time, so too the time with a new born baby, but the physical changes can leave women feeling less attractive to their partner. They can find that clothes no longer fit, that the body has lost firmness and shape. A Mummy Makeover can resolve all these issues.
The breasts can be reshaped, sometimes this is via a simple tightening of loose skin, other times implants can be used. Again, Elena’s skill and experience would ensure the right option is chosen in discussion with the patient.
The tummy area can be tightened and fat removed, a combination of a tummy tuck and liposuction. In this process, the belly button is also reshaped and any scar skillfully hidden below the underwear line.
Loose skin can be removed from the genital area, eliminating rubbing and also restoring a more youthful look.
The exact nature of the procedure would vary by patient depending on their body and requirements.
However, the processes are not overly lengthy and often can be undertaken all on the same day.

What Can I Expect From A Consultation?
Elena always offers lengthy, detailed consultations so she can fully understand the aims you are requesting. Elena can then talk through the available options, results and after care as well as the operation itself. Following your initial consultation It is normal to have a second consultation, for you to ask any further questions, once you have had time to consider the different surgical options. After the decision is made, we will carefully prepare for your surgery. During this consultation, you will have a fully informed consent form instructing what to do before and after surgery for the best outcome.
What Would My Expected Results Be?
Elena prides herself on taking the time to truly understand a patient’s aims and discussing what result will work best given the patient’s body shape and size. Although good results are expected, the body is not symmetric and almost everyone has some degree of unevenness, which may not be recognized in advance. The more realistic your expectations as to results, the better your results will be in your eye. You will have at least two consultations with Elena where she ensures that she meets your expectations and she will always try to achieve your desired results. See our Gallery for results.

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!
