As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity, and our muscles weaken, causing our skin to sag and droop. This can be particularly noticeable around the eyes, where the skin is thinner and more delicate. If you have had eyelift surgery in the past, you may have noticed that the results are not as impressive as you had hoped.

Eric Cerrati, MD, FACS, is a skilled and talented Salt Lake City plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing eyelift surgeries. He has the expertise to correct mistakes or other issues with your previous eyelift procedure through eyelift revision surgery.

So, when should you consider eye lift revision surgery? Here are some signs that you may need a revision:

Your Eyelids are Still Droopy

If your eyelids are still sagging after your initial surgery, it may be time for a revision. Various factors, including poor surgical technique or inadequate tissue removal, can cause this.

You Have Excess Skin or Fat

If you have too much skin or fat around your eyes, it can make your eyes appear puffy and tired. A revision surgery can help to remove this excess tissue and give you a more refreshed appearance.

Your Eyes Look Asymmetrical

If your eyes are not symmetrically aligned, it can be very noticeable and make you self-conscious. A revision surgery can help to correct this and give you a more balanced appearance.

You are Unhappy with the Results

Ultimately, if you are not happy with the results of your initial surgery, a revision may be the best option for you. It is important to discuss your concerns with Dr. Cerrati and determine if a revision can help you achieve the results you desire.

It is important to note that revision surgery is more complex than the initial surgery and requires a highly skilled surgeon with experience in revision procedures. A consultation with Dr. Cerrati at our offices in Park City allows you to learn more about his qualifications and experience before committing to a revision procedure.

In addition, it is also important to have realistic expectations about the results of revision surgery. While a revision can often improve the appearance of your eyes, it may not be able to completely erase all of the signs of aging or correct all of the issues from the initial surgery. Dr. Cerrati can explain more and answer your questions after an exam and review of your past procedure.

If you are considering eye lift revision surgery, it is important to do your research, speak with Dr. Cerrati at length and have realistic expectations about the results. Contact us today at the offices of Eric Cerrati, MD, FACS, to learn more about eyelift revision surgery in Utah.

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!
