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.

Dr. Cerrati is AMAZING at what he does! He is very professional, personable, and always makes sure you are comfortable during your procedures. After seeing 3 other physicians and having procedures done to help open my nasal passages, Dr. Cerrati came up with a different solution that actually worked. He is very meticulous and precise with all of his work and my facial injections were nearly painless. He does great work, I highly recommend!

Dr. Cerrati, Nani and the entire staff made my day today! I put my wallet on the hood of my car and drove off with it there on my way to my appointment this morning. By the time I realized what I had done my wallet was long gone. I ended up being 20 minutes late for my appointment (which I absolutely hate) and the staff was nothing but understanding and so so nice when I told them what happened. It was my first experience in the office but absolutely not my last! Not only am I impressed with the way I was treated but they did an amazing job!! My appointment was short and sweet with a job well done and I couldn't help but leave with happy tears in my eyes. Kind people are the best!!!

I had rhinoplasty with Dr. Cerrati. From my initial consultation though my follow ups, Dr. Cerrati listened to me. I got the exact result I had hoped for which was quite subtle. My recovery was way better than I expected. I needed one pain pill and was not in much pain at all. His MA came into the office on Xmas Eve to remove my cast so I could be out and about without a cast. I also had very little bruising. His staff is awesome. Haley was so responsive in helping me to schedule surgery. She actually responded to my email at 6:15 am and answered every inquiry I had. I had a nosebleed unrelated to my surgery and Dr. Cerrati made sure to squeeze me in on one of surgery dates just to make sure everything was okay. He is calm, knowledgeable and skilled. I was completely at ease throughout the process. I researched thoroughly before choosing him. I liked that he is younger with updated techniques and that he specializes in facial surgery. Highly recommend.

I came to see Dr. Cerrati after having a total Thyroidectomy earlier this year. The surgery didn't go as planned and I had to have a few other emergency surgeries right after. The scarring from all the surgeries didn't look very good and I had some tethering underneath that needed to be taken care of. Dr. Cerrati was great about explaining everything that would be done to remove the scar tissue and reclose the skin. I also had lots of anxiety about having another surgery since I had such a bad experience last time. Dr. Cerrati and the staff were very understanding and accommodating about my anxiety. I am very pleased with the way my scar looks now. I am confident that the scar will fade considerably and it will hardly be noticeable. I do feel like there were some communication issues when I would call in but I believe that it was not the doctor's fault and that it was more overall staffing issues. Just make sure you talk to the right people and get the phone numbers for his nurse and then all will go great!
