The ears are made primarily from cartilage and skin and are not the most durable part of the human body. When trauma damages your ear, you have the nearby professional services of Dr. Eric Cerrati, a fellowship trained and dual board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Residents in and around Salt Lake City and South Jordan can receive ear reconstruction plastic surgery at the hands of an expertly trained and experienced surgeon with an eye for facial artistry.

Dr. Cerrati focuses on the outer, visible part of the ear, and not the inner workings. However, even the shape of your ear serves important functions. Restoring both a functional aesthetically pleasing shape to your ear can be a complicated task, depending on the level of trauma your ear has suffered. Built to channel sound for improved hearing, the ear is a remarkable piece of the human anatomy, and Dr. Cerrati takes great care to restore your ear to a pleasing appearance and full usefulness.

Experienced Salt Lake City Ear Trauma Repair

Sometimes, trends in jewelry and adornment can cause trauma to our ears. If you previously had gauged earlobes or heavy earrings or multiple piercings have stretched or torn your earlobes, Dr. Cerrati can perform repairs to restore your ears to normalcy. Most ear reconstruction surgeries can be performed in an outpatient environment with local anesthesia. However, many patients requiring extensive work request general anesthesia.

Most ear reconstruction plastic surgeries take little more than an hour, and patients leave with bandages and instructions on how to deal with pain using ice packs and OTC pain medication. Patients may also be required to wear a protective headband while sleeping for a few weeks. Dr. Cerrati will give specific recovery instructions as part of a private consultation in his offices before your procedure. Contact either of his two Utah offices today to arrange an appointment.

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!
