Eye Lift Procedures Salt Lake City UT

The shape of your eye will change over time due to the natural aging process and following genetic factors. In addition, exposure to sunlight, environmental factors like smoking and diet choices, and the passage of time reduce the skin’s elasticity.

The relaxed epidermis cannot resist the pull of gravity, causing folds of excess skin to gather on the upper and lower eyelids. In addition, the body contains a layer of fat in the eye socket to protect the delicate eyeball from knocks and bumps. As you get older, the membrane holding this protective feature in position becomes weak, allowing the fatty layer to protrude forward. Visually, this creates a bulging effect on the eyelid.

The aging of the eye area could be impacting your day-to-day activities. However, there are several ways that eye lift surgery could immensely improve your quality of life.

Reduced Number of Migraines

If you suffer from migraines, you will know these headaches’ devastating effect on functioning normally. For example, intense headaches prevent you from working or socializing, impacting relationships with friends and family.

As gravity acts on the delicate tissue and muscle of the eye area, this downward pull generates a pressure point in the head. The tension from this constant and imperceptible strain actively contributes to the onset of migraines. Eye lift surgery removes this stress point, reducing the frequency of headaches.

Improve Your Vision

Excess tissue on the eyelid and bulging around the eyes can prevent the eyelids from opening properly. In addition, due to the narrowing field of vision, the enjoyment of many activities is limited. For example, you might find it harder to read, watch television or use handheld electronics like tablets.

Drooping eyelids impact peripheral vision, limiting your participation in sports or making it harder to navigate busy areas like a shopping mall. As the tissues are tightened during eye lift surgery, your field of vision increases, allowing you to keep doing the things you enjoy.

Revitalize Your Appearance

Heavy eyelids can change your expression, making you constantly look tired or even angry. This affects how others perceive you and is detrimental to your well-being and confidence. Eye lift surgery restores a youthful, engaging appearance.

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!
