Hard, bony growths can appear on the forehead at birth or over time. Although benign, and not a cause for alarm, some are painful and can detract from your appearance. These growths, called osteomas, can be surgically removed in a simple procedure after ensuring they are not attached to other underlying structures. Dr. Eric Cerrati removes osteomas through an eye and brow procedure in his South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices.

Dr. Cerrati is a double board certified and fellowship trained specialist in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, with experience in surgically removing osteomas from the forehead. He uses the most advanced technology and techniques to safely perform the procedure and minimize scarring. This is an important consideration due to the impact the forehead has on your overall facial appearance.

Minimally Invasive Utah Osteoma Treatment

A small, shallow incision is typically all that is necessary to remove an osteoma, since they are not deeply embedded into the skull or other structures. Dr. Cerrati uses minimally invasive endoscopic surgical techniques when removing osteomas to minimize scarring and speed recovery. The placement of your osteoma will determine the placement of the incision. At times, they can be hidden in the hairline or eyebrow. Sometimes placement requires a direct incision in the forehead.

Dr. Cerrati is a skilled facial plastic surgeon who can minimize scarring while restoring your natural, unaltered appearance. This procedure can be performed in an outpatient setting under local or general anesthesia. Recovery time is short, and patients can typically return to full activities within 48 hours after surgery. You may wear a small bandage for a few days to protect the surgery site.

For more information about the procedure or to schedule an osteoma removal surgery consultation with Dr. Cerrati, contact either one of his Utah offices today.

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!!!
