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.
Tunbridge Wells Plastic Surgery
Tunbridge Wells Plastic Surgery (TWPS), at 6
Mount Ephraim in the heart of the spa town of Royal Tunbridge
Wells, is home to my Private Practice. In addition, Purity
Bridge, the exclusive aesthetic clinic I opened in June 2013 is
based at TWPS. As well as consulting there, the clinic offers me
the chance to perform minor surgical procedures (under local
anaesthetic) as well as being able to offer the wide range of non-surgical treatments that Purity Bridge
excels in. I look forward to welcoming you to the clinic, which
provides a lovely relaxed environment away from the hospital

forthcoming open evenings for early 2014

In addition to the comprehensive lower face/neck lift that I
perform, additional procedures that further enhance the results are
proving more and more successful. These can range from using toxins
to treat the fine lines, as well as fillers to the lips or facial
peels to improve the skin quality. However, fat grafting is
increasingly being shown to be an excellent long term technique. In
those who require some more volume in their cheekbone area, as well
as filling of the nose-to-mouth creases, the technique of
"micro-fat" or even "nano-fat" grafting can be used to produce
refreshed, natural facial rejuvenation. If you are interested in
finding out more, I would be delighted to discuss procedures and
techniques that would be relevant to your specific situation.
Fat transfer breast enlargement
I am getting an ever increasing number of patients seeking
breast enlargement using their own fat (also known as lipofilling
or fat grafting). Conceptually this is a great procedure - reduce
the fat from one area, and use that to enlarge the breasts. There
are various aspects about this procedure that you can read
about here › which are important to understand prior to going
ahead with this procedure. The only certain way of knowing if you
are a suitable candidate would be to come for a full consultation
and examination. Please contact the clinic to arrange an
appointment (01892 619 635)
Mr Pacifico and patient education
I am very much involved in continuing patient
education. Please visit some of the following very informative
websites for more information - they can be very 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.
