Elena is outstanding in three ways, namely her:
- level of qualifications and experience
- her ethos and her manner with patients
- Her reviews and reputation, what her patients say about her
Elena is one of the UK’s leading plastic and cosmetic surgeons and one of very few females in the field.
As with all leading cosmetic surgeons, her level of training and experience is great – she completed eight years training in plastic and reconstructive surgery and then undertook a three-year Fellowship at, among other hospitals, Guys and St Thomas’s in London.
She has had further fellowships abroad, including in Tokyo, seeing the latest International advances in the field of cosmetic surgery.
Elena is a Board Certified UK Consultant Plastic Surgeon – among many other qualifications – and has won numerous awards for her work and her research.
On this site, it is possible to see Elena’s awards, certificates and details of her publications – this is not to boast, but instead to back up the claim that she truly is one of the leading cosmetic surgeons in the UK.
Just as importantly, Elena’s ethos is to put potential patients at ease, to really listen to what they hope to achieve through any surgery. The initial consultation is in-depth, as long as it needs to be and also honest.
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.
It is of course easy to talk of an ethos, but is it matched by what patients say?
Elena’s reviews are almost uniformly five stars.
On the iwantgreatcare.org site, she has 100% five star reviews and glowing testimonials, similarly the reviews of her work in Bristol, including tummy tucks, are all five stars on Google. Please do take the time to seek out reviews of any cosmetic surgeon you are considering to get a feel whether they are the right person for you.
