Hemangiomas are the most common type of birthmark or benign tumor of the skin. They are generally present at birth or appear shortly after birth. Most develop on the skin in the head or neck area and grow rapidly, but they can also be found in other areas. Three major types of hemangiomas are routinely treated by facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Dr. Eric Cerrati can diagnose and perform hemangioma treatment for children at his offices in South Jordan and Salt Lake City.

Infantile Hemangiomas

Infantile hemangiomas are groups of blood vessels that can be present at birth or develop during the first three months. They are common on the head or neck but can appear anywhere. Infantile hemangiomas are more common in females than in males. Commonly known as “strawberries” from their bright red appearance, they gradually grow in size over the first year of life. Surgical treatments are usually only necessary if the hemangioma causes complications like bleeding or other vital functions.

Non-Involuting Congenital Hemangiomas

Non-involuting congenital hemangiomas (NICH) are growths of blood vessels that appear at birth fully formed. They are mostly seen on the head, neck, lower jaw and joints and occur equally in males and females. This type of hemangioma is benign and only addressed if medically necessary.

Rapidly Involuting Congenital Hemangiomas

Rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas (RICH) are benign growths of blood vessels that are present at birth. They shrink and lighten in color during the first two years after birth. Treatment is typically not required unless the hemangioma causes complications that necessitate surgical removal.

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!!!
