Mrs. J. C. - GibraltarBackground:
After having 4 children I have always wanted to have a Breast Augmentation, although I never thought it was something I would do. I was always a little worried about going under the knife for vanity reasons. I started going to the gym and started to like the look of my body, except for that one area. Nothing I did in the gym was going to be able to change my breasts, so I finally made the decision to go for it.
I spoke to many people and friends who had it done and the one surgeon’s name that kept coming up was Dr Marco Vricella of Aria Medical Group. I went to the consultation and did not have to sit in a waiting room anxious, as I was met by Louise Truelove, my Patient Co-Ordinator, within minutes. Both made me feel so at ease and very comfortable. Louise then took me into the room where I met Dr Vricella; he also made me feel calm and relaxed as he told me everything I needed to know about Breast Augmentation surgery. On that one meeting I knew I wanted it done for sure and that Dr Vricella was going to be the surgeon to do it for me.Procedure:
I went in for surgery and everything about it was actually pleasant! All the staff were very friendly, I did not feel at all nervous at any point. Before I knew it I woke up and was being taken good care of by the staff at the beautiful HC International Hospital. I remember the nurse asking if I was cold then put a tube in my blanket blowing warm air, that just made me fall back asleep it was so lovely. Next time I woke up in my room and was amazed that there was hardly any pain. I remember thinking “this can’t be right” and was expecting that the pain was going to hit me with a vengeance very soon but that never happened. Yes there was some discomfort - I wouldn’t have been normal if there wasn’t - but it was bearable, not at all as bad as I thought it would be.Aftercare:
The day after Dr Vricella and Damien Moore, Aria’s Specialist Nurse, came to see me. They took off my bandages and WOW! My breasts were swollen so were slightly bigger than they will be, but I loved the results immediately.
Days passed, and apart from being tired and a bit uncomfortable, I was out and about 3 days later.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!!
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.
The tummy tuck from Aria has made a massive difference! I look and feel so different. I notice clothes fit so differently, and I can enjoy wearing so many more different styles of clothes. People comment positively on my figure too! I feel a different person. I am so happy that by the summer I will be completely healed and ready to enjoy wearing a bikini again!
Its sounds a cliché but I do wish I had done it years ago, when I was in my 30s or 40s! Thank you Aria.
Breast Lift together with Abdominoplasty
I’m extremely pleased with the results and I highly recommend Dr. Marco & his team.
Every time I look at myself in the mirror I am wowed by the results!
Thanks to my breast lift and tummy tuck, my clothes fit better. I can put on a bikini again after all these years and feel great.
Before the surgery I used to buy and wear loose fitting clothes to disguise my figure. Now I can buy clothes that fit and friends comment that I look thinner and have a great figure. Colleagues also notice I look in better shape.
In short, the experience was truly worthwhile, even after all the years putting it off. Aria Medical Group is a professional team; Dr. Marco is a talented surgeon with a good aesthetic eye; and as a client and patient I felt well cared for by a team that always made themselves available.
