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.
Upper & Lower Blepharoplasty
‘It actually took a week before I could see the initial results. I had to wait for the plasters to be removed and the stitches taken out. I have to say the worse part of the procedure was my concern about the pain of having the stitches out! I was really worried about it.
‘Yet Tanya the nurse understood the concerns and really took it slowly so I didn’t have any pain.
‘Then she handed me a mirror so I could take a look, I just felt ‘wow’; it was fabulous, I was so happy with the results!
‘Then the scars were covered with healing tape for a few days. From then on I was able to wear light make-up and carry on as normal.
‘That first week or so after the surgery I was just SO excited, so happy that I had go ahead and finally done it. Finally after all these years I was without my eye bags. I couldn’t stop smiling, I felt like I was on a high!
‘This op was just so important for me. It was not about a superficial desire to be prettier. I just wanted to rid myself of those eye bags which I had lived with all my adult life.
Now, a few weeks later I think the results are amazing. The incision scar now is just a small, fine line which will reduce even more with time.
As a woman about to be 50 I think the result looks really natural, my face doesn’t looked fake. My eyes look the same, just my face looks healthier and not tired anymore.
So I have to say I am thrilled with the results.
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.
‘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!’
