Amy - GibraltarBackground:
I am 21 years old and I have always been very uncomfortable with the way my breasts looked. Ever since I started wearing a bra I had hated them.
As I got older my breasts grew but they didn’t seem to be growing on top - just underneath the nipple - so they looked very low and empty,
Living in Spain I found it very hard as I wasn’t able to wear the bikinis and low tops that everyone else was able to and I felt very uncomfortable sitting on the beach. I used to think “I’m too young for my breasts to be so low down” and I was so self-conscious. I used to look at everybody else to see the difference between their breasts and mine - why was I so different?
I was so self-conscious about this part of my body that I used to cover myself in front of my own mother and even my boyfriend had only seen them covered by a very thick push up bra or bikini.
After a lot of thinking, I decided to go to see Dr. Vricella, even though my mum was initially against it. When I went in, he was very friendly and reassuring, as was Louise Truelove. I was very nervous but they put me at ease and explained the whole procedure to me. I told them that my mum felt unhappy about me having surgery so they insisted I came back a second time with my mum so they could explain everything to her and put her mind at rest too. The week after I went back with my mum and once she’d spoken to Dr Vricella and asked him all of her questions and explained her fears, she felt a lot better and was then able to be more supportive of my decision to go ahead with the surgery.
When I went to HC International Hospital for the pre-operative tests I was surprised on how beautiful the hospital was, it was like a 5 star hotel! I met Damien Moore, Dr Vricella’s Specialist Nurse, who is lovely, and he went through everything with me again and took all the remaining doubts my mother had away.
Finally the day came round; I was very nervous but as always all the ARIA team were very helpful, friendly and reassuring. When I woke up, I was worried I’d be in a lot of pain but I must admit now that it wasn’t as bad as I thought and after the first night I was up and about and then after 3 days I was more or less back to normal.
It has been 2 months now, and I am the happiest woman on earth – I have really been looked after. I am more than thrilled with the service I received and am still receiving. ARIA are a great medical team and thanks to them I have the self-esteem and confidence that I didn’t have for a very long time.Results:
I could not be happier with the results. They are very natural, and FULL of volume! Like I wanted them to be. I have finally got the breasts I wanted and really cannot wait until summer to show them off.
Also my mum, who was originally against all of this, is very happy and pleasantly shocked with the results, as she didn’t think they would be so natural looking.
A big thank you to all the ARIA Medical Group, you have made this experience so much easier – I could have written a book about how happy I am!
Breast Augmentation & Uplift
When I came back to work I decided to tell a few people about the operation. I was just so happy with the results that I wanted to share how I felt. Now some of my clients want to have the operation too!
I am super happy – really, really pleased with the results.
I just want to go shopping for new clothes!!
Since the surgery, I’ve noticed the pain in my neck and back has gone; which is great as I spend a lot of time on my feet in my job, so not only do I feel more feminine, but my overall health is improved because of the surgery.
I feel more attractive; and much more confident.
My husband was worried about me having surgery but he really supported me, and he also felt that I was in safe hands with Aria Medical Group.
I know that Aria Medical Group are not the cheapest choice for breast surgery; I could have had the operation cheaper. But that wasn’t my priority. I wanted to feel confident, safe and have the assurance of a good result.
I really trust Aria Medical Group. I now, after talking with my friends and clients, see just how many other happy patients they have.
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.
Since my surgery, I have received great aftercare from Dr Vricella, Louise Truelove and the team. I couldn’t have wished for better results and this surgery has made me much more confident and less self-conscious about taking my shirt off. I highly recommend Dr Vricella and his well-experienced team.
