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.
‘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!’
Abdomoplasty, Breast Reduction, Liposuction
Everyone can see the difference! I of course look slimmer and I can tell you, my husband is very happy! I’m telling my close friends about the cosmetic surgery – I am so proud of it! I can’t wait for summer – already buying new clothes!
I would like to thank them all, but most of all Dr Marco Vricella, Damien Moore and Louise Truelove for their help in changing my life. I agree with Louise 100% when she says the procedure I had was not just cosmetic surgery but life changing surgery.
Many thanks to all at Aria Medical group, you gave me back my confidence and now I walk tall.
