Kent cosmetic surgery clinic smashes business growth forecasts as demand soars

A cosmetic surgery clinic in Tunbridge Wells has exceeded its growth forecasts by more than 200% since opening its doors to clients two years ago.  

Demand for specialist cosmetic surgery procedures has far exceeded initial expectations since the Bella Vou clinic was launched in August 2015, following a £2 million refurbishment. Over the past six month period alone the clinic has seen a 40% rise in bookings for cosmetic procedures as demand for its services continues to grow.   

The Bella Vou clinic team

The private Bella Vou clinic was founded by Harley Street-trained surgeon Amir Nakhdjevani and Clinic Director Roger Bigwood two years ago, and now employs 13 full-time staff. To date, Bella Vou has treated more than 2,200 clients, with procedures ranging from non-surgical fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments to surgical procedures including tummy tucks, liposuction, breast augmentation, face and neck lifts, and hair transplants.   

Bella Vou’s Clinic Director, Roger Bigwood, said: “Since we opened we have been blown away by the incredible demand for our services – over the past two years Bella Vou has treated double the number of patients we had predicted, which shows the huge demand for cosmetic surgery in Kent and the South East.   

“The vast majority of our clients are referred to us by word-of-mouth recommendations from previous patients, which is a testament to the skill of our internationally recognised consultant plastic surgeons and the efforts we make to ensure that all of our clients receive the highest standards of care. Thanks to our growing reputation, we’ve also welcomed numerous clients from overseas, including patients from Australia, the USA, Germany and New Zealand.” 

Bella Vou is renowned for its unique ConceptTM Facelift, which was developed by lead surgeon Amir Nakhdjevani. The minimally invasive technique – the only full facelift surgery carried out under local anaesthetic – means clients are fully healed in less than one week, compared to the six to eight weeks’ recovery typical with ‘traditional’ facelift procedures.

Over the past two years, Mr Nakhdjevani has carried out more than 600 ConceptTM Facelift procedures. This year, Mr Nakhdjevani was the only surgeon in Europe to make the prestigious RealSelf 100 award list, which recognises the top influencers in cosmetic and aesthetic medicine.   

The Bella Vou clinic is located on The Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells and offers a full range of cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures. With three state-of-the-art operating theatres, the vast majority of procedures are carried out on site by the clinic’s surgical team.
