Mrs. M. W. - GibraltarBackground:
Mine was a somewhat unusual situation as I am not a resident in Marbella, but with the kindness of a friend who said I could stay with her for 2 weeks post operatively I was able to go ahead with my surgery.
I had lived with bags under my eyes for many years and it was making me feel very depressed. With the encouragement of my friend I booked myself a consultation appointment in June 2011 and was met by Louise Truelove, the Patient Coordinator, who introduced me to Dr Marco Vricella. After my in depth consultation I decided to plan to have the operation at the beginning of 2012 and the date was set for 11 January.
Louise arranged a pre-operative meeting with Damien Moore, Aria’s Specialist Nurse, where everything was explained clearly to me making me feel very at ease.
On the day of the surgery I was met by Damien and Louise and shown to my room in preparation for the op - I was met by Dr Vricella in the operating theatre who went through any more questions I had and before I knew it I was in the Recovery Room.Aftercare:
The follow up care was exemplary.Results:
I have to say I am so pleased with the results that I would recommend ARIA to anyone thinking of having eye bag removal.
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!
I could not be happier with the results. They are very natural, and FULL of volume! Like I wanted them to be. I have finally got the breasts I wanted and really cannot wait until summer to show them off.
Also my mum, who was originally against all of this, is very happy and pleasantly shocked with the results, as she didn’t think they would be so natural looking.
A big thank you to all the ARIA Medical Group, you have made this experience so much easier – I could have written a book about how happy I am!
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.
