Welcome to the practice
I would like to welcome you personally to my website. As a
consultant plastic surgeon based at Purity Bridge
in Royal Tunbridge Wells, and practising at a number of
private hospitals in Kent and Sussex I understand the vital
importance in making the right choices at every step of your
potential surgical (or non-surgical) journey.
Of course there is no substitute for a face-to-face meeting or
consultation to talk about the procedure you have in mind or the
area that you are concerned with, but I hope that the material I
have written here provides you with a detailed platform to start
your research into plastic surgery.
I endeavour to provide a holistic approach, tailored to each
individual, as plastic surgery is not only a physical
transformation, but can also effect a psychological or emotional
change. Please visit the other pages on the website that discuss
this in more detail, as I feel this is an important, and often
neglected, part of the process.
Finally, I welcome any feedback you may have about the website,
my practice or anything else you may feel relevant. Thank you for
taking the time to visit the site.
Facelift season is here again!
Almost without fail, at around the time the clocks change each
autumn, there is a surge in requests for facial rejuvenation
procedures - particularly facelifts, but also eyelid lifts and brow lifts. Inevitably it is
because it easier to hide away in the colder months, so that all
bruising, swelling and scar maturation has settled down before
spring! I think it is a perfectly sensible approach, and this time
of year allows hair to be worn down, scarves to be worn around
necks or even heads, and it is easy to blame the weather on not
coming out for a social enagagement. Whilst many people recover
quickly, I would suggest a facelift patient does not make any
social plans for 3-weeks after surgery and an eyelid lift patient
waits at least 2 weeks.
Please expolore the pages on my website about facial
rejuevenation procedures to find out more, and please do take some
time to read the facelift diaries, my patients have
New Purity Bridge website
I am pleased that our new website at Purity
Bridge is now live! I base my private practice at Purity
Bridge, where I not only consult with the majority of my patients,
but I am also able to carry out treatments and procedures under
local anaesthetic, such as correction of prominent ears,
upper eyelid lifts, nipple procedures, skin cancer and
mole surgery and much more.
Please have a look at the website - there are many things we
plan on adding to it, so it will be a constantly evolving site,
with lots of content - especially video content and a photographic
Tunbridge Wells Plastic Surgery - medical
insurance company recognition
Tunbridge Wells Plastic Surgery (TWPS), at 6
Mount Ephraim, Tunbridge Wells, has full facility recognition by
all major private health insurers for minor surgical procedures to
be performed there. These would be done by me, as well as some
other specialist consultant surgical colleagues. The sorts of
procedures we can perform include skin cancer removal (e.g. BCC removal), mole
removal, scar revision, cyst removal and much
more. If you have private healthcare, please ask your GP to write a
letter of referral, which is required to activate the private
health insurance process. I look forward to seeing you at Tunbridge Wells Plastic Surgery soon!
Breast Surgery - "boob jobs"
We are continuing to get many people requesting surgery to their
breasts, colloquially known as a boob job. Surgery to the breast
can take a number of forms - enlargements (breast
implants), breast reductions, breast lifts (mastopexy), combinations of enlargements and
lifts (augmentation mastopexy). In
addition, there are procedures that can be done to nipples,
such as correction of inverted
nipples, or nipple reductions. Please see the
relevant pages of the website for more information, and book to
make a consultation to find out more - either with me, or a
complimentary consultation with Sue Mitchell, my specialist nurse
at the Purity Bridge clinic.
Belly button reshaping
I have many enquiries into the practice about a range of
procedures, and recently I seem to be seeing a lot of people with
concerns about their belly buttons. This ranges from regrets about
a past piercing, to wishing to convert their "outie" to an "innie"
or otherwise correction of surgery performed elsewhere. There are a
variety of procedures that I perform, and they are all under local
anaesthetic. This means they can be performed as an "office"
procedure with you awake. I perform the surgery at Purity
Bridge. Please get in touch if you are interested in finding
Mr Pacifico and patient education

Treatments & Procedures
Surgery to the face is usually performed to refresh and revitalise a tired or aged appearance. This may be done by surgery to the brow (browlift), surgery to the upper or lower eyelids (blepharoplasty), a face or neck lift or through other procedures. Please visit the webpages on the relevant topics for further information.
Plastic surgery to the body aims to improve the contours of the body. This may be using fat reduction procedures (such as liposuction) or surgery to remove excess skin and fat (such as a tummy tuck or a body lift). There are a wide variety of possible options for body contouring and it is important to have the treatment tailored to you as an individual. Please visit the webpages on the relevant topics for further information.
Reconstructive surgery refers to any plastic surgery procedure that restores form and/or function to the body. This includes breast reconstruction (such as a DIEP flap or an implant based reconstruction), reconstruction for skin cancer excision (facial reconstruction for example) or for a wide variety of other soft tissue defects. Please visit the webpages on the relevant topics for further information.
Plastic surgery to the breast includes both aesthetic and reconstructive procedures. Aesthetic procedures may enlarge the breast (breast augmentation), lift the breast (mastopexy), enlarge and lift the breast (augmentation-mastopexy) or reduce the size of the breasts (breast reduction). Other procedures on the breast may also be performed such as correction of an inverted nipple (nipple eversion) and correction of tuberous (or tubular) breasts. Please visit the webpages on the relevant topics for further information.
Non-surgical techniques, principally concerned with muscle relaxation (through Botulinum toxin injections) and using synthetic fillers (such as hyaluronic acid) may be used to refresh and rejuvenate the face. These procedures may usually be done as an outpatient with minimal downtime. Please visit the webpages on the relevant topics for further information.
