A Beautiful Face Salt Lake City UT

You may be standing on the threshold of middle age, looking in the mirror and noticing little signs of aging starting to develop. You wonder if a facelift would help or not. On the other hand, you may feel you are too young to be thinking of such things as you ease your skin toward your hairline taking in your profile.

As early as your late twenties or early thirties, your skin begins to lose its elasticity. Collagen levels begin to diminish and small wrinkles and tiny lines develop around your eyes and smile line. Facial skin becomes loose and your cheeks may start to look a little saggy. It may not be bad, but you are aware of the changes. A mini facelift may be just the thing you need to restore your youthful appearance and halt the onslaught of aging.

A Fast Track to A More Youthful Appearance

A mini facelift is perfect for people who do not need a full facelift but are not happy with the lines and wrinkles that are beginning to form. Recovery from a mini facelift is much shorter than that of a full facelift. It also can be more natural-looking.

Investing in a mini facelift early in middle age is more cost-effective and it means that you most likely will not need a more comprehensive facelift when you get older. Addressing the issues with loose facial skin early on makes it less likely that you will need more extensive work later. Additionally, the change in your appearance, while making you look younger, will not be as drastic as a full facelift may be later in life.

A Less Invasive Path to Rejuvenation

A full facelift requires general anesthesia, invasive surgery and weeks of recovery. A mini facelift can be performed in less time and is less invasive. Most patients recover from a mini facelift within a week or so. The mini facelift is an in-office procedure that only requires mild sedation.

If you see the signs of aging beginning to affect your appearance and you want to do something about it, contact Dr. Eric Cerrati. Schedule your consultation appointment today and get more information about the mini facelift.

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!
