Nipple reconstruction surgery is available in Bristol with Elena Prousskaia, a world-leading cosmetic surgeon who has held the prestigious Fellowship in Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction and Breast Oncoplastic Surgery at London’s Guys and St Thomas Hospitals.
Relative to other cosmetic procedures, nipple reconstruction is a quick and simple operation and one that can be carried out under local anaesthetic at a choice of two modern Bristol Private hospitals – Bristol Spire and Bristol Nuffield.
Often, this procedure is the finishing touch to breast reconstruction, the final step in completing the desired end look of firmer, more youthful breasts.
Nipple reconstruction surgery is a procedure that many fine surgeons in and around Bristol are qualified to undertake, so why consider Elena?
We believe there are compelling reasons.
Nipple Reconstruction Bristol – A Leading Surgeon
Elena is not only one of the leading surgeons operating in the UK, she is one of a very small number of leading female surgeons.
While gender of the surgeon of course has no bearing on their skills, a female surgeon is uniquely aware of the impact of some forms of cosmetic surgery and how important the procedure can be to self esteem and sense of self.
This comes across in Elena’s ethos. She always undertakes lengthy consultations with prospective patients, this to fully talk through their hopes and concerns for surgery and to give a clear picture of what surgery can achieve, how it would proceed and also the after care.
In the case of nipple reconstruction, small, secondary adjustments to the reconstructed breast might also be undertaken or at least discussed. These might include contralateral reduction, uplift, or lipofilling to the flap to help ensure matching shape and volume. Elena’s expertise, specialism in breast reconstruction and ethos would ensure this was fully discussed in consultation.
It is of course easy to speak of having a superb reputation, but reviews have to back it up. In Elena’s case, the reviews are universally positive, and please do take the time to read what previous patients have said.
The fact that all patients speak of positive outcomes is also testimony to Elena’s experience.
She is a cosmetic surgeon with a nearly 20 years’ experience, this having trained for eight years in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
She has held Fellowships around the world, including Milan, Spain, India and the stunning University Hospital Tokyo. Elena holds many international awards and certifications and has been published in leading medical journals. This is not mentioned to be boastful, merely to point out that she is the highest echelon of cosmetic surgeons.

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!
