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.

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!!!

Dr. Cerrati is absolutely amazing! I was so happy with my fillers that I received. Definitely will be returning to him again! I trust him and recommended him 100% to all my family and friends. He always does his best to make sure his patients come out with the best possible outcome!

I had rhinoplasty with Dr. Cerrati. From my initial consultation though my follow ups, Dr. Cerrati listened to me. I got the exact result I had hoped for which was quite subtle. My recovery was way better than I expected. I needed one pain pill and was not in much pain at all. His MA came into the office on Xmas Eve to remove my cast so I could be out and about without a cast. I also had very little bruising. His staff is awesome. Haley was so responsive in helping me to schedule surgery. She actually responded to my email at 6:15 am and answered every inquiry I had. I had a nosebleed unrelated to my surgery and Dr. Cerrati made sure to squeeze me in on one of surgery dates just to make sure everything was okay. He is calm, knowledgeable and skilled. I was completely at ease throughout the process. I researched thoroughly before choosing him. I liked that he is younger with updated techniques and that he specializes in facial surgery. Highly recommend.

I came to see Dr. Cerrati after having a total Thyroidectomy earlier this year. The surgery didn't go as planned and I had to have a few other emergency surgeries right after. The scarring from all the surgeries didn't look very good and I had some tethering underneath that needed to be taken care of. Dr. Cerrati was great about explaining everything that would be done to remove the scar tissue and reclose the skin. I also had lots of anxiety about having another surgery since I had such a bad experience last time. Dr. Cerrati and the staff were very understanding and accommodating about my anxiety. I am very pleased with the way my scar looks now. I am confident that the scar will fade considerably and it will hardly be noticeable. I do feel like there were some communication issues when I would call in but I believe that it was not the doctor's fault and that it was more overall staffing issues. Just make sure you talk to the right people and get the phone numbers for his nurse and then all will go great!
