Are you experiencing the signs of aging around your eyes? Do you worry over excess eyelid skin or puffiness underneath your eyes? Dr. Eric Cerrati can perform a blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift or eye lift, to restore youth and beauty to your overall appearance. Eyelid surgery is an excellent solution for those who are ready to surgically reverse the signs of aging around their eyes and rejuvenate their eyelids.

Blepharoplasty is a precise surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Dr. Cerrati can perform this procedure in an outpatient setting on the upper lids, lower lids or both. Various techniques are used to correct issues with the upper and lower eyelids, depending on what is needed. Blepharoplasty is used to correct:

  • Sagging or hooded skin in the upper eyelid
  • Excess fat or a puffy appearance in the upper and lower eyelids
  • Sagging skin or bags underneath the eyes
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles around or below the lower eyelid

Dr. Cerrati can explain how this procedure can help you in a confidential eyelift surgery consultation at his South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices.

Skilled Eyelid Surgeon in Utah

Due to the fine, thin skin around the eyes, blepharoplasty can be a complicated surgical procedure. It takes precise movements and the hand of a skilled eyelid surgeon to perform such delicate work. Working so close to the eyes demands experience and expertise. Incisions are tiny and must be placed strategically in order to hide scars that could affect your appearance.

Dr. Eric Cerrati is a fellowship trained and double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Utah. He possesses the necessary training and experience to perform blepharoplasty procedures and achieve beautiful results. No matter the aging evidence around your eyes, Dr. Cerrati is a skilled eyelid surgeon who can do what is necessary to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Upper Blepharoplasty

Loose skin and fat can gather in the upper eyelid as time passes, causing some to reflect a tired look that is not welcome. An upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid lift, can correct this aging effect by removing minute amounts of fat, muscle and excess skin from the upper eyelid. Dr. Cerrati routinely conceals the incisions from an upper eyelid lift, within the natural creases of your eyelid.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty, or a lower eyelid lift, is used to correct under eye bags caused by excess fat. Although this procedure is technically more difficult than upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Cerrati removes just the right amount of skin and fat to create the desired appearance. With a lower blepharoplasty, you will look more youthful and refreshed. Dr. Cerrati also places strategic incisions that are hidden just below the lower lash line and in other discreet areas.

How Can I Expect to Recover from Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty incisions heal quickly and with minimal scarring, due to the thin skin on the eyelids. Dr. Cerrati will remove your sutures 4-5 days after surgery, and bruising should fade away shortly. Within 10-12 days, your eyes will appear rested and youthful. Dr. Cerrati’s patients typically return to work within 5 to 7 days following surgery. The results generally last for several years before any changes are noticed from continued aging.

Dr. Cerrati can explain the techniques of blepharoplasty, including recommending if you need upper, lower or both when you meet with him for an examination and consultation. Contact either his Salt Lake City or South Jordan offices to schedule your eyelid surgery consultation today.

Eric is such a great doctor! He treated me as family and was very thorough and diligent. I was very nervous but he made me feel comfortable at all times especially when undertaking a 7 hour surgery. I flew in all the way from the East Coast to see him as I heard he was the best in his field. His staff is friendly and caring. You can tell he has a good heart. I recommend!

I am one month out from my procedure with Dr. Cerrati and could not be happier with my results. From my initial inquiry to today, both the doctor and the staff could not have been more helpful. Dr. Cerrati has a wonderful team that makes scheduling, payments, and follow up questions easy. The doctor himself is attentive, happy to answer questions and did a great job of listening to my concerns and ideas, while presenting his professional opinion in a respectful and helpful way. My recovery was a breeze, thanks to his careful techniques. At just one month, I am seeing a drastic improvement in both form and function. So thankful to have Dr. Cerrati based in my home of Utah, but I would have traveled across the country to see him!

Dr. Cerrati performed a facelift (w/ neck tightening), upper and lower blepharoplasty, and CO2 laser resurfacing for me in February 2021. I’m 3.5 months post op and the results have exceeded all my expectations; beyond what I ever could have imagined. I experienced minimal pain, swelling and bruising, after my 8 hour surgery and was ready to be seen in public in less than 10 days. Dr. Cerrati and his team are without question, second to none in their field. I have been treated with nothing but the utmost professionalism, compassion, patience, kindness and unconditional support from the beginning of my journey to today. Any questions or concerns I have ever expressed have ALWAYS been given the utmost respect and Dr. Cerrati pays attention to every detail in his patient care. His artistic talent and surgical skills are remarkable. In my opinion, he is a truly gifted plastic surgeon. The best you’ll find in the industry. If you’re considering any facial plastics procedures, Dr. Cerrati, and his team, is the place to come, even if it means traveling to do so. Thank you so much for changing my life for the better and giving me back my self confidence that I was sure I’d lost forever.

Choosing Dr. Cerrati to perform my rhinoplasty was the best decision I ever made! I had consultations with many other surgeons and he was who I felt most comfortable with. He really listened to what I wanted and made it look very natural. He fixed my deviated septum and performed some cosmetic work. My recovery was such an easy process! I had 0 pain and minimal bruising. I love the outcome of my nose, both functionally and structurally. I highly recommend Dr. Cerrati, you wont regret it.

Working with Dr. Cerrati and his assistant Hailey, has been the most wonderful experience! It is clear Dr. Cerrati cares about helping you achieve your dreams and Hailey is the sweetest, most helpful & awesome gal ever! They both spent so much time listening and understanding exactly what I wanted done with my nose and forehead and spent time making sure I was cared for and heard. I love my results and am so happy that I chose to go with this team. I plan to continue using them for my lip and cheek injection and suggesting them to all my friends moving forward- I am soo happy I found them!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cerrati based on my experience with both him and his office staff. He is very professional and a perfectionist When it comes to his patients results. I researched several surgeons, and ultimately decided on Dr. Cerrati based on his reviews and before and after pictures. One month post rhinoplasty, I am no longer self conscious. I’m loving my results ( and I’m very picky) . If anyone is worried , rest assured you Will love Dr. Cerrati and his staff!
