Age sneaks up on all of us and leaves signs we may not notice for many years. Then we look at a picture and notice our eyes are smaller. Droopy eyelids partially cover our eyes even when we are wide awake, making us look tired or lazy. Or baggy bunches of skin accumulate underneath our lower eyelids, further detracting from a young or vital appearance. Droopy eyelid skin above or below the eye is known as dermatochalasis.

As collagen and elastin in our skin are reduced with age, eyelid skin becomes less pliable, losing its ability to stretch and recover. Over time, constant blinking pulls on the eyelid, stretching the skin until an excess amount gathers above or below your eye. Gravity pulls on this extra skin, causing it to sag downward. Excess skin over the eyeball can eventually cause your vision to become impaired.

Superior Dermatochalasis Surgery in Utah

Dermatochalasis, also sometimes called “saggy eye,” differs from ptosis, in that dermatochalasis is caused by excess skin and fatty tissue that accumulates in the eyelids over time. Ptosis is a condition where the upper eyelid droops because of a weak eyelid muscle. To correct dermatochalasis, the excess skin and fatty tissue are removed from either the upper or lower eyelid, wherever the problem exists.

Dr. Eric Cerrati is a double board certified and fellowship trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who can perform excess eyelid skin removal at his offices in South Jordan and Salt Lake City. If you have trouble seeing or do not like the way your eyes look due to saggy eyelid skin, contact one of his offices to schedule a confidential eyelid surgery consultation.

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!!!
