Mrs. W - MarbellaBackground:
After thinking about it long and hard, and spending some considerable time soul searching and lacking in confidence, I finally decided I wanted to have surgery done. Since having my daughter by emergency caesarean, I had a pouch around my stomach area. I had also gained a lot of weight during pregnancy which, although I lost most of it, I didn't ever seem to be able to lose it from around my tummy. One of the main areas where I lost weight was by breasts (which weren't big to begin with!) I was so unhappy with my shape for years, and no matter what I did, it didn't seem to make a difference to these areas.
So, I contacted a few different surgeons, and decided upon Aria Medical Group. The reason I chose Aria was because of how I was made to feel during our first consultation. I didn't feel rushed. Any questions I had were answered, no matter how silly I thought they were. The care and attention to detail I was given made all the difference. I was made to feel welcome and everything was explained to me in simple terms.
My initial operation was for a tummy tuck. This was in November of 2010. After the success of this I decided to have breast augmentation and uplift in December 2011. Again, the same care and attention to detail was given to me at every stage. At the initial visits and at all the follow-ups, I was very well looked after. There are many follow up meetings, which is fantastic. On the day of the surgery, I was greeted at reception by Louise Truelove, the Patient Co-Ordinator, and shown to my room. The rooms are very comfortable and have everything you can possibly need. Once I had changed out of my clothes, I was met by Dr Marco Vricella and Damien Moore, the Specialist Nurse, where we went over everything once again just prior to surgery. The next thing I remember is waking up and being taken back to my room. It was over and I couldn't wait to see the results. Again, the hospital staff were all wonderful and very caring.Aftercare:
On returning home after I was discharged by Dr Vricella, I even received follow up phone calls and emails from Louise to ensure I was OK.Results:
I can't believe I waited so long to have the surgery, and would have no hesitation in recommending Aria and the team to anyone. The change in my life is incredible.
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!
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.
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!!
