Dr. Ashraf plays a critical role in helping her patients rejuvenate their eyes to appear younger and energetic.
The eyes are the window to the soul. As people age, their eyelids tend to stretch, and supporting muscles become weak, making them appear tired and sad. Natural aging results in the accumulation of fat both above and below the eyelids, which causes droopy lids, sagging eyebrows, and dark circles. This makes the eyes appear tired and sad.
Dr. Azra Ashraf is a board-certified plastic surgeon. She offers both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments in Newport Beach, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, San Bernardino, Costa Mesa, San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, San Diego and throughout Southern California. Patients undergoing blepharoplasty not only gain youthful, beautiful eyes but also benefit from improved vision, as excess skin can cause visual obstruction.
Blepharoplasty surgery aims to correct the eyelids’ deformities, defects, and disfigurations caused by aging. It repairs the sagging eyelids and removes excess fat, muscle, and skin.
In upper eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, Dr. Ashraf creates an incision hidden in the eyelid crease to remove the fat or skin. After that, she uses a thin stitch to bring the skin together and creates an eyelid crease. The scar is imperceptible.
Lower eyelid surgery involves an incision on the inside of the eyelid (known as the transconjunctival approach) or skin incisions directly below the lash line. The transconjunctival approach allows the surgeon to access the eyelid without any visible incisions.
With natural aging, excess skin and fat extrusion secondary to weakened ligaments on the upper eyelids make them heavy. With time, as the eyelids begin to droop, the person may notice a change in appearance, and in some cases, the ability to see also deteriorates. Through Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, the additional skin from the eyes is removed so that the person gets a positive facial appearance along with enhanced peripheral vision.
