Mrs. C.L. - GibraltarBackground:
I’m a 29 year old mother of a two year old. I have for years wanted to have a breast reduction but had always decided against it as I knew that I would eventually have a child and thought it wise not to have surgery before then. Once I had my child I thought more and more about having surgery especially since I breast-fed and my breasts had become extremely saggy.
I decided to get some advice from Dr Vricella as two colleagues at work had had surgery performed by him and were ecstatic at the results. During my consultation Dr Vricella explained the procedure very clearly and in a manner which was very re-assuring. I then met Louise Truelove his patient co-ordinator who is not only friendly, but extremely professional and honest. Louise helped me in considering whether it was the right time for my surgery or not, especially since I had a two year old.
After carefully considering I decided to go ahead and book my surgery.
I have now had my surgery and all I can say is “Thank god I chose the Aria Medical Group”. They have been extremely professional throughout the whole experience.
You are probably thinking, why? Well to start off I have a complicated medical family history. After finding out about my family history they were very cautious and carried out endless tests. It was extremely re-assuring as I knew that my safety was being put first at all times.
Once I had surgery the care during my two night stay at hospital was superb. The staff at the HC International are amazing and the amenities are fantastic. I felt like I was staying in a 5* hotel and not in a hospital.
The after care is fantastic, especially since after the first week they come to your own home for your first follow up appointment, and afterwards I’ll see them in Gibraltar – I won’t have to traipse over to Marbella each time, which is really helpful, as there are at least 6 follow up appointments in the first year.
In conclusion I am so happy and to top it all off my breasts look amazing. Thank you Dr Vricella you truly are a magician.
The scar is very low and I love being back in my miniskirts this summer. I even went to a nice lingerie shop and brought a few matching sets and new bikinis which I wear with confidence. I never realized how low my confidence was with my body until after this operation. My relationship with my husband is back to what it was when we first met, I go out with my friends more, and most importantly I’m posing in photos with my kids.
I show my operation scar to everyone, as I’m so proud of the results. Some people think I’m crazy for having it done, however the way I see it, if you have a problem/illness with your body then you would see a doctor to get it sorted. That’s what I did with my tummy tuck.
Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!
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.
