You live life on your own terms. Each new day serves up challenges to be faced and opportunities to be embraced. But over a lifetime of living loud, your face can show the ravages of facing life head-on. Your cheeks can often show early signs of aging, making you appear far older than your age — and certainly older than you feel. If your cheeks are sagging with the weight of years gone by, consider turning up the volume with cheek lift and/or cheek augmentation surgery from Dr. Eric Cerrati.

What Can Cheek Lift / Augmentation Surgery Do for Me?

In this cosmetic procedure, Dr. Cerrati lifts the cheek area to remedy a hollow, sagging appearance in your cheeks. Patients who need added volume to improve shape and definition can benefit from a cheek augmentation, which can also be performed at the same time. Often, patients will require both procedures to accomplish the desired appearance. Cheek augmentation can be accomplished by fat transfer or implant.

What is Involved in Cheek Lift / Augmentation Surgery?

Dr. Cerrati will use strategically placed incisions, usually behind the ears, to lift the muscles, skin and other tissues of the cheeks to remedy sagging. Some excess skin may also be removed. Any needed augmentation can be placed and manipulated through the same incisions. Your scars will be minimal and hidden from view. Slight swelling and bruising are to be expected as you recover from the surgery, but they should resolve within 7-10 days. In two weeks, you should be fully recovered and showing off your vibrant and youthful-looking face.

Dr. Eric Cerrati is a double board-certified and fellowship-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with the expertise necessary to perform delicate facial cosmetic procedures. Residents of South Jordan, Salt Lake City and the surrounding communities can enjoy cosmetic enhancements from a superior surgeon. Call either of our offices to schedule your confidential cheek lift/augmentation 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!
