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.

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!!!

Dr. Cerrati is absolutely amazing! I was so happy with my fillers that I received. Definitely will be returning to him again! I trust him and recommended him 100% to all my family and friends. He always does his best to make sure his patients come out with the best possible outcome!

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!
