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!!
Upper Blepharoplasty – upper eye lid surgery
By day 4 I could see the results! It was a fantastic feeling! I was overwhelmed by how good the results already were! I felt emotional, seeing how my face had changed, after all these years thinking about and waiting for a procedure.
Now, just few weeks after the op. I am enjoying putting on eye make-up again for the first time in years!
I feel great – so much more confident.
My advice to anyone thinking about a procedure like this, is to go for it. It’s remarkable how a change like this can make you feel so different.
The few friends who I have told about the op. are so happy for me!! They tell me I look much younger!
The funny thing is that although I am in the 50s, I didn’t want to have the procedure because I wanted to turn back the clock; I simply wanted to get rid of my droopy eye lids to allow me to have open eyes; to feel good about myself when I went out; to enjoy wearing eye make-up; and not be affected so much when I suffered allergies or sinus issues.
I see this positive reaction from other Aria clients. For example I was in the waiting room for an aftercare follow-up consultation and another client who had recently had a tummy tuck couldn’t help but show me their result and say just how happy they were to have had cosmetic surgery!
Like the other clients, my upper eye lid surgery has been a real success.
I am happy to recommend Dr. Marco Vricella and Aria Medical Group.
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.
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.
