Birthmarks and mole removal is a cosmetic pediatric service offered by Dr. Eric Cerrati at his Salt Lake City and South Jordan offices. Birthmarks and moles are similar in that they are both pigmented lesions that may be present at birth or develop shortly after birth. They can occur anywhere on the body, and many are in unnoticeable places so that children do not even realize they have a birthmark or mole. Some children get birthmarks and moles that are bothersome. However, others don’t even know they have them. Most birthmarks and moles are harmless and best left alone.

When a birthmark or mole becomes an irritant or interferes with bodily functions, they must be removed for good health. There are also times when the aesthetic aspects of a birthmark or mole is such that your child would be better off having it treated or removed. If your child has a birthmark or mole that needs treatment, Dr. Cerrati can examine it and determine if it is harmless or poses a risk for a more serious medical condition.

Uniquely Skilled and Experienced Pediatric Surgeon

During a 5-year residency in head and neck surgery at New York University, Dr. Cerrati worked alongside one of the most prominent facial plastic surgeons in the world, Dr. David Rosenberg. He was also privileged to spend time working with Dr. Milton Waner, the founder of the Vascular Birthmark Institute of New York. This experience provided him with unique training in pediatric facial plastic surgery, addressing many rare congenital anomalies. As a result, Dr. Cerrati has seen and treated a wide variety of birthmarks and moles on children.

Many treatments exist for moles and birthmarks that present problems, either functionally or for aesthetic reasons. Dr. Cerrati uses the most advanced techniques available and prefers to choose minimally invasive options first. Treatments can include microneedling, chemical peels and laser therapy.

If your child has a troublesome mole or birthmark, contact our practice today and set up a private consultation with Dr. Eric Cerrati at his South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices. He will examine your child and listen to any concerns before making any diagnosis or plans for treatment. You can be sure that with Dr. Cerrati, you and your family are in the best of hands.

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!!!
