If you notice an eyelid that seems to hang lower than the other, even when you are wide awake, you could suffer from ptosis. This describes a droopy upper eyelid caused by muscle weakness or paralysis. This condition can even affect your vision if allowed to progress long enough.

Ptosis is correctable through a blepharoplasty, or eyelid correction surgery. Dr. Cerrati treats this eye condition by strengthening the muscle function, or in some cases, replacing the muscle that controls and causes eyelid function. This is not the same condition known as “lazy eye.” That issue stems from a problem with the muscles that control eyeball movement, not the eyelid muscle.

Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery in Utah

Dr. Eric Cerrati is a skilled and experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Utah who performs blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. Ptosis correction surgery is one form of blepharoplasty. During this procedure, Dr. Cerrati removes any excess skin to help reshape the eyelid while treating the eyelid muscle that is the primary cause of the problem. Special care must be taken to remove the precise amount and still allow for proper eye function and protection by the eyelid.

This procedure is commonly performed in an outpatient setting, and patients recover quickly. This is due to the thin eyelid skin that heals rapidly and with minimal scarring. Postoperative bruising usually fades within seven days, and most patients return to a normal routine within 7-10 days.

For a confidential ptosis correction surgery consultation with Dr. Cerrati, contact either of his Utah offices in Salt Lake City or South Jordan. His kind staff will be happy to schedule you for a consultation as soon as possible.

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!

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!!!
