Although the eyelid is the thinnest and most delicate skin on the entire body, it performs vital functions. Many patients undergo cosmetic procedures that deal with aging issues around the eyes, like saggy skin, eye bags, line and wrinkles. Sometimes trauma causes damage to one or both eyelids that must be repaired with reconstructive surgery. This is when oculoplastic, or eyelid reconstruction, surgery is needed.

Skin cancer, defects, accident trauma or reconstruction after Mohs surgery are all causes for eyelid reconstruction surgery. While these surgeries require meticulous and precise techniques, Dr. Cerrati has the experience and skills necessary to perform the corrective measures necessary to restore your eyelids to completely normal function and aesthetic appeal. He understands that both considerations are equally important to his patients.

Post-Trauma Oculoplastic Surgery

Reconstructive techniques are not only used when trauma causes damage to the eyelids. Very often, they are also used during purely cosmetic procedures to remove excess skin and fatty tissue that affects the patient’s appearance or even hinders their eyesight. At times, patients will have misshapen eyelids that inhibit proper function or restrict vision. After the removal of some skin cancer tumors near the eye, eyelid surgery is needed to reconstruct the area once occupied by the cancerous cells.

Dr. Eric Cerrati is a highly skilled and expertly trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who also instructs students in this field of medicine at the University of Utah. He is a specialist at oculoplastic, or eyelid reconstruction surgery, who uses the latest and most advanced surgical techniques to bring about the functional and aesthetic results you desire.

To schedule your eyelid reconstruction surgery consultation, contact Dr. Cerrati’s offices in Salt Lake City or South Jordan, Utah, or call to speak with one of our team members.

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!!!
