Mrs. C. - GibraltarBackground:
Ever since I was a teenager, I was always self-conscious about the size of my breasts and how small chested I was compared to the rest of my friends. At the back of my mind I constantly had the thought of having a breast augmentation but was terrified of going through surgery and worried about the possible risks and side effects that could follow.
However, when I had my children I loved the size and shape of my breasts during pregnancy and the first weeks after the birth. I remember telling my husband that this was how I wanted to look from now on. My breasts felt full and firm. Obviously after stopping breast feeding I went back to looking like I had before being pregnant and slowly started feeling that my breasts looked even worse now. They were smaller and felt empty at the top. More and more I began to consider having surgery and made the decision to go for a consultation and set the ball rolling as soon as my children were old enough to understand that I could not pick them up for a while.
Through word of mouth, I heard of different clinics and surgeons, but Dr Vricella's name kept coming up quite often. I looked on the internet to find more information and was extremely happy to see that he had a clinic in Gibraltar where I could make an appointment for a free consultation.
At the consultation Dr Vricella explained the procedure for the operation and post-op recovery so well that he actually answered all the questions that I had intended to ask him myself. He understood that I wanted my breasts to look natural and that I didn't want to go too big either and recommended the size of implants that I should have. He really put my mind at ease and without further thought, I booked the date for my operation there and then.
The procedure went as planned. The hospital staff were very professional throughout.Aftercare:
Louise and Damien were fantastic in supporting me both before and after the operation. They are always available to answer any questions and doubts.Results:
It has now been 2 months since I had the augmentation and am thrilled with the results! The operation has boosted my self-confidence and I feel that this has been one of the best decisions I have ever taken. I definitely recommend Dr Vricella and his team to anyone considering undergoing cosmetic surgery.
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.
I am so pleased with the results and the service I received that I felt I had to let the staff at Aria Medical Group know. I love my new body and I have Dr Vricella, Louise and Damien to thank for that.
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.
