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.


Recent news

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 kindly written.

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 gallery.

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 out 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.
