Scars result when there is damage to the skin from trauma or surgery. Scar revision surgery attempts to minimize a scar so it is less conspicuous and blends in with the surrounding skin and tissue. The main reason for scar revision in children is aesthetic concerns. Although, at times, scar tissue can impede normal functions or movements and must be corrected. When you need pediatric treatment, Dr. Eric Cerrati is your local facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who handles scar revisions in and around Salt Lake City and South Jordan, Utah.

In any patient, scar revisions depend to a great extent on the severity of the injury and scarring, the location of the scar and how it affects the surrounding skin and tissues. Some scar revisions may require several treatments stretched out over a period of years. Each scar treatment or revision needs time to heal and fade before Dr. Cerrati can determine how the next treatment should be handled.

Gentle Kids’ Scar Treatment in Utah

Many small scars in children will fade with age and time and become virtually unnoticeable. However, many times, trauma leaves large visible scars, even after facial plastic reconstruction surgery. Different wounds demand specific treatment, and scarring is how your body responds to heal trauma and injury. Dr. Cerrati’s job is to minimize scarring during reconstructive surgery and even treat existing scars from previous trauma or surgery to minimize or even eliminate its visibility.

Dr. Eric Cerrati is a double board certified, fellowship trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who directs the Department of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Utah. He has training and experience that has uniquely prepared him for the work of surgical reconstruction and pediatric scar revisions. You will not find a more experienced and qualified plastic surgeon in Utah or the surrounding states.

If your son or daughter needs gentle scar treatment, contact the South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices of Dr. Cerrati to schedule your pediatric scar revision consultation today. Dr. Cerrati can explain more about what procedures are available and which ones would benefit your child the most.

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!!!
