Welcome to the practice
I would like to welcome you personally to my website. As a
consultant plastic surgeon based in Royal Tunbridge Wells
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 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.
Right now we are in the middle of a very exciting practice move
within Tunbridge Wells (apologies for any temporary disruption!).
We are moving to a beautiful period clinic in the middle of the
town on Mount Ephraim. It offers a unique opportunity to open an
independent private clinic within which I can provide the best
possible service to my patients. Read

Mr Pacifico's response to the Keogh report:
I am personally fully supportive of Sir Bruce Keogh's findings published today
(24th April 2013). In his report he recommends a variety of
measures that should be taken by doctors and others offering
cosmetic medical procedures. I am glad to be able to say that ALL
of the recommendations are practices we already adhere to, and have
done for years. At the end of the day, the public who volunteer for
cosmetic procedures put their trust and confidence into those of us
who provide these services, and it is our moral and ethical duty to
deliver the highest quality of care (and aftercare) at all stages
of the patient journey.
Mr Pacifico and patient education
Over the last few months I have started getting more
involved in the on-line plastic surgery community. Some really
informative websites exist which I feel are hugely helpful for
people thinking about plastic surgery or for those with concerns
after surgery. Please see here for more

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.
