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 I had mine done my friend has booked her operation for this week. I must admit that my life has changed tremendously - I am finally happy with the way I look! My clothes fit differently and I must admit I now feel like a complete woman. Thank you Doctor Vricella, Louise Truelove and of course Damien Moore - between you all you have changed my life!
I decided to get some advice from Dr Vricella as two colleagues at work had had surgery performed by him. During my consultation Dr Vricella explained the procedure very clearly and in a manner which was very re-assuring.
Breast Augmentation & Uplift
I just want to say again how happy I am that I went ahead with the op and how amazing your whole Aria Medical Group team is; especially Dr Vricella, Damien, Tanya and of course, Louise Truelove.
Please tell Damien him how grateful I was when he held my hand tight when I was being given the anaesthesia. It's small gestures like that that make a difference.
