Common Signs of Aging

Aging affects everyone differently, but there are some common signs that a facelift surgery seeks to correct. As we age, our skin loses much of its firmness and elasticity. Lines and wrinkles form as skin sags and bears the imprints from a lifetime of facial expressions. Muscle tone decreases throughout the face and neck, causing jowls and droopy eyes, and the waddled, “turkey neck.”

Our faces lose volume as collagen production slows down and subcutaneous fat deposits shift. We lose the smooth contours of youthful cheeks and plump, sensual lips. All these common signs of aging bring numerous patients to our offices to seek the finely tuned surgical expertise of Dr. Cerrati. He is experienced in a number of facelift surgery techniques to bring youth and vitality back to your facial features.

Superior Facelift Techniques

During your facelift surgery consultation with Dr. Cerrati, he will review the options available for your procedure. Depending on your appearance and aesthetic goals, certain enhancements can be made to bring a more youthful and balanced appearance to your face. Dr. Cerrati uses cutting-edge surgical techniques to achieve your desired results while minimizing scarring. Incisions are typically made in easy-to-hide areas like behind the ears, under the chin and along the hairline.

Your facelift surgery can include measures to address droopy eyebrows, sagging cheeks, flat cheekbones and more. Dr. Cerrati can address the need for additional volume in the cheeks, forehead lines and undefined lips.

Recovering from Your Facelift

Recovery times will vary between patients and depend on how extensive your procedures were. Patients who desired work on more than one portion of the face will need a longer time to heal. Swelling and bruising will persist for about two weeks. Patients should rest and use ice packs and OTC pain medications to treat discomfort. Avoid strenuous or rigorous activities for three to four weeks. Dr. Cerrati will make further recommendations for each individual patient, tailored to specific procedures.

As the swelling and bruising fade away, your vibrant new appearance will become more evident. After four weeks, all signs of surgery will likely have faded, leaving you with only a younger-looking you that is ready to face the world with confidence. Be sure to keep any follow-up appointments with Dr. Cerrati, and contact his office immediately with any concerns you have, as well as to inform him of any persistent bleeding or swelling.

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!
