Dr. Eric Cerrati

All plastic surgeons want to excel in their field, and Dr. Eric Cerrati is no different. He strives to investigate revolutionary treatment and improve on existing procedures. Although his patients consistently report that his surgeries exceeded their aesthetic expectations, Dr. Cerrati cares about the whole client experience – including any impact on overall quality of life.

As such, Dr. Cerrati was delighted to both present and take part in a panel at the Vegas Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Dermatology Symposium (VCS) in June 2021. VCS represents a gathering of leading practitioners, researchers and educators, and Dr. Cerrati was proud to contribute to this elite committee.

A Revolution in Post-Operative Pain Management?

Dr. Cerrati takes patient recovery post-surgery extremely seriously, not only with regard to the procedure, but how the recuperation period affects the resumption of daily life. While his patients are very satisfied with the surgery results, many expressed discomfort with post-operative pain management.

Side effects from narcotic pain control include vomiting, dizziness, sedation and itchy skin. This impacted the convalescent’s ability to walk, drive, work or feel normal. Additionally, an opioid abuse epidemic is sweeping America. Statistics show that a significant number of those prescribed opiates will abuse them, with a concerning minority developing an addiction or moving on to harder drugs such as heroin.

Accordingly, Dr. Cerrati has been investigating a possible alternative with Celecoxib. In his observations of 151 facelift and rhinoplasty patients, those given Celecoxib reported feeling completely alert 48 hours following surgery. They reported far fewer adverse effects such as nausea and vomiting, and required less pain medication to be prescribed and consumed overall. The ramifications of this study could revolutionize how post-operative pain is managed.

Sharing Knowledge to Shape the Face of the Future

At VCS, Dr. Cerrati gladly took part in a panel discussion with several of his esteemed peers. The aim was to prevent and solve surgical complications. Topics spanned unfavorable scarring and asymmetry to issues like preventing infection and deep vein thrombosis, with Dr. Cerrati sharing his findings on alterative post-operative pain management.

Dr. Cerrati believes that patient comfort and well-being are at the heart of plastic surgery and constantly strives to improve the industry and educate others.

You deserve a plastic surgeon you can trust. Put yourself in safe hands by contacting Dr. Cerrati’s Salt Lake City, UT office without delay.

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!
