Mrs H. - MarbellaBackground:
I wanted surgery as I was only 50 years old and had recently lost 2 stones in weight. My breasts had become horrid – heavy and painful and I was uncomfortable with my clothes on as well as off and very self-conscious. I could not imagine living for maybe the next 20-30 years of my life looking the way I did.
I first contacted Aria Medical Group in May 2012 and the initial consultation was brilliant. Dr Marco Vricella made me feel completely at ease and I already had an excellent report of the quality of surgery and care there as my daughter had had a breast enlargement with Dr Vricella a few years before and was totally thrilled with the results.
My procedure was booked in for the 10th December 2012 - so no hard sell to get you in ASAP - and Louise contacted me in October with the date for me to go in for my pre-operative tests. By this time I just could not wait for the operation as I had had another summer of being uncomfortable with these pendulous breasts and just wanted it all over and done with.
December came and the day arrived and I was full of anticipation, but I need not have worried as Dr Vricella and his team were on hand to make me feel totally at ease. Damien Moore, the Specialist Nurse, and Louise Truelove, the Patient Coordinator, made me feel so welcome and reassured me at every step.
The surgery was brilliant - the next thing I knew I was in the Recovery Suite with these wonderful new breasts - I could not believe how great they looked.
All the staff in the hospital were brilliant - from Dr Vricella himself, to the nurses who kept popping in to check on me, to the lovely lady who brought the food round – all were friendly and helpful.
I would like to thank them all, but most of all Dr Marco Vricella, Damien Moore and Louise Truelove for their help in changing my life. I agree with Louise 100% when she says the procedure I had was not just cosmetic surgery but life changing surgery.
Many thanks to all at Aria Medical group, you gave me back my confidence and now I walk tall.
Upper & Lower Blepharoplasty
I have to say I am so pleased with the results that I would recommend ARIA to anyone thinking of having eye bag removal.
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.
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.
