Damage to any of the many facial nerves can cause impaired movement and an unbalanced facial expression. Both are equally concerning to victims and are reasons to seek facial paralysis treatment from a highly qualified and experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Residents of Salt Lake City, South Jordan and other Utah communities are fortunate to have such a resource in Dr. Eric Cerrati.

Facial paralysis in various forms can cause different functional problems, like difficulty breathing, chewing, swallowing, drinking and speaking. Some paralysis symptoms can even cause eyelid problems that complicate vision. Issues with the facial nerves also cause loss of muscle tone and the ability to perform or control facial expressions. Often, the facial features begin to progressively droop and sag as more control and sensitivity is lost.

The nature of the damage or illness affecting the facial nerves determines where and to what extent the effects are felt and seen. Dr. Cerrati will perform a thorough examination as well as record a detailed medical history before proposing any treatment modalities for facial paralysis. This will be accomplished during a confidential facial paralysis treatment consultation with the patient and his or her loved ones.

Advanced, Professional Nerve Damage Treatment in Utah

Numerous surgical treatments exist to repair the effects of facial paralysis. Once the cause is determined and the effects are noted, Dr. Cerrati can begin crafting a treatment plan. Treatments exist for victims of these conditions:

Most procedures seek to provide a balanced and natural appearance to the face to restore the victim’s sense of self-confidence. This can involve treatments to open the eyes, straighten the lips and establish symmetry to the facial features. These conditions can be confusing and raise many questions. Dr. Cerrati provides more information during a consultation at his South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices.

If you or a loved one suffers from facial paralysis, contact Dr. Cerrati to discuss treatment options and possible outcomes for a better quality of life.

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!!!
