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.

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!!!

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!
