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.
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 am so pleased with the results and the service I received - and still am receiving - that I felt I had to let the staff at ARIA know. I love my new body and I have Dr Vricella, Louise and Damien to thank for that, so thanks guys!!
