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.

Eric is such a great doctor! He treated me as family and was very thorough and diligent. I was very nervous but he made me feel comfortable at all times especially when undertaking a 7 hour surgery. I flew in all the way from the East Coast to see him as I heard he was the best in his field. His staff is friendly and caring. You can tell he has a good heart. I recommend!

I am one month out from my procedure with Dr. Cerrati and could not be happier with my results. From my initial inquiry to today, both the doctor and the staff could not have been more helpful. Dr. Cerrati has a wonderful team that makes scheduling, payments, and follow up questions easy. The doctor himself is attentive, happy to answer questions and did a great job of listening to my concerns and ideas, while presenting his professional opinion in a respectful and helpful way. My recovery was a breeze, thanks to his careful techniques. At just one month, I am seeing a drastic improvement in both form and function. So thankful to have Dr. Cerrati based in my home of Utah, but I would have traveled across the country to see him!

Dr. Cerrati performed a facelift (w/ neck tightening), upper and lower blepharoplasty, and CO2 laser resurfacing for me in February 2021. I’m 3.5 months post op and the results have exceeded all my expectations; beyond what I ever could have imagined. I experienced minimal pain, swelling and bruising, after my 8 hour surgery and was ready to be seen in public in less than 10 days. Dr. Cerrati and his team are without question, second to none in their field. I have been treated with nothing but the utmost professionalism, compassion, patience, kindness and unconditional support from the beginning of my journey to today. Any questions or concerns I have ever expressed have ALWAYS been given the utmost respect and Dr. Cerrati pays attention to every detail in his patient care. His artistic talent and surgical skills are remarkable. In my opinion, he is a truly gifted plastic surgeon. The best you’ll find in the industry. If you’re considering any facial plastics procedures, Dr. Cerrati, and his team, is the place to come, even if it means traveling to do so. Thank you so much for changing my life for the better and giving me back my self confidence that I was sure I’d lost forever.

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!
