Lymphatic malformations result from improperly formed lymphatic vessels. These vessels channel the body’s tissue fluid through lymph nodes and back to the bloodstream. When they do not form properly, fluid does not flow properly and may accumulate, forming lymphatic malformations. They may often appear as spongy, solid masses of different sizes on the skin or in body cavities like the abdomen or chest.

Lymphatic malformations may resemble tumors or swelling and can occur in internal organs. Depending on the location, they can cause abnormal enlargement of organs and place pressure on other organs or structures of the body. These malformations can also swell suddenly from internal bleeding and are prone to infection. Dr. Eric Cerrati can perform lymphatic malformations treatment for children at his offices in Salt Lake City and South Jordan.

Expert Treatment of Pediatric Vascular Anomalies

Lymphatic malformations treatment depends on the location, type, size and effect on neighboring bodily structures. No two treatments are the same, as no two people are alike. Each case demands a tailored approach to diagnose and treat the anomaly. Conservative treatments aim at reducing swelling and discomfort, preventing infection and the malformation from interfering with other bodily processes.

When these treatments are not enough and intervention becomes necessary, it can include injecting the malformation with a solution to cause its collapse (sclerotherapy), surgical removal and other medical treatments to limit the risk of recurrence. Dr. Cerrati has specific training and experience with congenital defects and pediatric plastic surgery. You will not find another facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Utah and the surrounding states with more expertise in these types of procedures. Contact his South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices today to schedule a 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!!!
