Nose Surgery Salt Lake City UT

Long after bruising and swelling has subsided, a fractured nose may not look or feel the same. Damage to nasal structures can impact the shape of the nose and your ability to breathe freely. There is also the possibility of increased infection risk when nasal functions are impeded.

Setting a fractured nose is not always enough to fully repair the damage from trauma. Some injuries may require facial reconstruction surgeries to make cosmetic and functional improvements. These procedures are typically carried out by a specialist plastic surgeon.

Facial Aesthetics

The nose is the most central feature of the face and therefore plays a role in balance and symmetry. When structural damage occurs, the shape and orientation of the nose can be affected. Although you may not have damaged any other area of the face, any change to a prominent feature will change your overall facial aesthetic.

Repairing a fractured nose will restore balance and symmetry between facial features. However, patients can also opt for further cosmetic enhancements. Making cosmetic improvements to the nose after an injury often helps patients cope with the psychological impacts of the associated accident.

Restoring Nasal Function

Most people passively breathe through the nose when at rest. When the structures of the nose or nasal cavity are damaged, it can result in varying levels of breathing problems. A specialist cosmetic surgeon in Utah will focus on both the appearance and function of the nose during treatment. This relies on an understanding of facial anatomy that is only achieved through extensive experience.

If you would like to discuss options for having a fractured nose repaired in Utah, call the offices of Dr. Eric Cerrati for a consultation today. We office facial reconstruction services for both aesthetics and function in Utah.

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!

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!!!
