Two of the most significant facial rejuvenation procedures are blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and facelift surgery. While each is performed on different areas of the face, they both can help create a more youthful appearance. If you are considering plastic surgery to refresh your face, you may be researching both these procedures. Why not combine the two for a balanced facial rejuvenation?

The facelift is the gold standard of anti-aging plastic surgery. Removing loose skin around the upper neck, jawline and jowls and elevating the lower face tissues can restore a more youthful appearance. Facelift surgery can erase several or more years from your facial appearance, especially if most of your aging features are in your lower face. However, it does not address bags under the eyes or droopy upper eyelids that make you look tired and older.

One Surgery Day for Facial Rejuvenation

If you have sagging skin on your lower face and neck, and excess skin around your eyes, consider a two in one plastic surgery day. Both a facelift and blepharoplasty can be completed on the same day for a full rejuvenation. Doing one or the other is wonderful, but if you have aging issues in both places, the results can look unbalanced. If you only have the eyelift, you will still have jowling or sagging skin around your jaw and neck. When you complete both at one time, you are addressing the two main areas that make the face look older.

Beyond the benefits of a balanced, refreshed appearance, combining multiple procedures for facial rejuvenation can be more convenient. Patients who combine blepharoplasty and facelift surgery or any other lift procedure also combine their recovery time. Typically, the recovery time is the same for facelift surgery whether you have only a facelift or add an eyelift, brow lift or other procedure at the same time.

If you want to refresh your face from your upper neck to upper eyelids, consider a two-in-one facial rejuvenation surgery day. Dr. Eric Cerrati is one of the top facial plastic surgeons in Utah and can achieve stunning, natural-appearing results for your eye or facelift procedure.

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!
