Oversized or protruding ears can cause suffering for individuals. For those who have dealt with ridicule and improper remarks about their ears, the damage to your self-esteem can be lasting. When you are ready to find a solution for your unsightly ears, come see Dr. Eric Cerrati in South Jordan or Salt Lake City. He can perform an otoplasty, or ear pinning surgery, to restore your ears to a balanced and symmetrical appearance.

Ear pinning surgery is a relatively conventional procedure where incisions are made in the hidden area behind the ears to complete reshaping or removing cartilage. Removing excess skin and tissue is necessary in order for the ears to set closer to the head. This simple procedure has profound effects on a person’s self-esteem and confidence. The procedure generally lasts between 1-2 hours and can be performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia, although some patients prefer general anesthesia.

Utah Correction for Protruding Ears

Even children whose ears have stopped growing can benefit from otoplasty, or ear pinning. Children are bitterly cruel to others who have appearance abnormalities, and the mental trauma from teasing can last a lifetime. Put an end to this for your child with surgical correction for protruding ears from Dr. Cerrati.

As a fellowship trained, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with extensive training and experience, Dr. Cerrati is the natural choice for any cosmetic or reconstructive procedure in Utah, including otoplasty. He can explain more about this procedure, including its benefits and any possible risks, in a face-to-face consultation at his office. Contact the helpful office staff at our South Jordan or Salt Lake City locations to arrange for your ear pinning surgery 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!!!
