Many people will recognize it: tired eyes, poor vision and the constant tendency to pull the eyes up. mr. Gerard Verschoor had exactly the same and decided after years of doubt to do something about it. At Aesthetic Center Jan van Goyen he underwent an eyelid correction.
Gerard: “I've been walking with tired eyes for years. When I was sitting on the couch with my wife in the evening, she regularly asked are you sleeping?while I just opened my eyes. Also, because of the skin that hung over my eyes, I couldn't see what was happening next to me. I found that so annoying that a few months ago I requested a consultation at Aesthetic Center Jan van Goyen. I was soon able to go there and the conversation with Drs. Roossink gave me a very good feeling about the operation, which was scheduled six days later.”
drs. Roossink: “The eyelid correction is one of the most common operations we perform. Depending on the problem, skin, part of the muscles and fat are removed. The operation lasted only half an hour and after a few more minutes of cooling, Mr. Shift home again. People often find it a scary idea that there is anesthetic and surgery around the eye. In retrospect, everyone thinks it's not that bad.”
“What a relief!” laughs Gerard. “I can see well again and my eyes are much less tired. The surgery and the recovery time after it was 100 percent better than expected. The first week I had to take it easy and I was not allowed to lift or bend over. After a week the stitches were removed and I was allowed to do everything again. If I had known this I would have done it years ago!”
