Mrs. T - GibraltarBackground:
After years of putting it off, I finally decided to go ahead with cosmetic surgery with Aria Medical Group. I had previously had a joint procedure performed with them which went well and that experience, the results and the aftercare from Dr. Marco Vricella and his team made me feel confident that it was time I had the eye surgery I had always wanted.
Yet I couldn’t help feeling a little nervous. Getting work done on my face had always worried me because you can’t hide any mistakes.
However, Dr. Marco Vricella did such an excellent job on the previous tummy tuck and breast lift that I had had that I trusted him to perform the upper blepharoplasty surgery.Procedure:
I had my surgery with Aria Medical Group at the HC International Hospital in Marbella. As before, the procedure, medical care and support was excellent.Aftercare:
Thankfully for me I experienced little to no pain after the upper blepharoplasty. There was of course some discomfort when I first came around after the operation but I was given cold, wet compresses to apply regularly which really worked, along with intravenous painkillers.
I took 10 days off work as I knew there would be bruising. I still had marks under my eyes until day 16, but I could wear makeup to disguise it.
Since the surgery was relatively recent, I am still having check-ups – which will continue for a full 12 months - which are conveniently offered here in Gibraltar.Results:
The few people I told about the procedure teased me saying I was crazy to go ahead and that I didn’t need it. But afterwards, they commented on how great the results were! I was told I looked much younger.
I really recommend anyone thinking about having an upper blepharoplasty to book a free consultation and find out more. I am really happy with the results.
Since my surgery, in June 2013, I have received great attention and after care from Dr Vricella, Louise Truelove and Damien Moore. I couldn’t have wished for better results and this surgery has made me much more confident and less self-conscious about taking my t-shirt off. I highly recommend Dr Vricella and his well-experienced team.
‘I am so happy with the results. I would say to any woman that is considering this procedure not to delay the decision!’
‘The results for me have been wonderful.’
‘Dr. Vricella is clearly more than just a talented surgeon, he really values aesthetics. The skill and care with which he performed my procedure is something my partner and I really value. My breasts look and feel great.’
‘My breast reduction is fantastic! I am so happy with it. I’ve retained complete sensitivity in my breasts and nipples and they look great. The lines from the incisions are so good that even now, so soon after surgery, they are hardly noticeable. I can’t wait for summer!’
‘My clothes fit so much better, and I am able to truly enjoy sport. What’s more the scars and grooves in my shoulders from years of wearing a heavy bra are already softening. I don’t feel any discomfort anymore in my back and neck and I don’t get migraines any more. I feel that this has been a real investment in my long term health and well-being. I think Marco is brilliant!’
I just wanted to say how extremely happy I am after having an Upper Blepharoplasty. The procedure was done by Dr Marco Vricella at Marbella High Care hospital. I can’t praise him, Louise Truelove and Tanya Keble enough for their enormous love and care before and after my operation. I am over the moon with my results and I would highly recommend to anyone who is thinking about having this procedure done.
The professional work and care is second to none
Thank you guys for everything.
