Rhinoplasty is the general term for surgery performed to make functional or cosmetic changes and corrections to the nose. Since the nose is such a prominent, noticeable facial feature, particular care must be taken with any changes or enhancements. When any procedure is performed on the nose, the overall goal is a balanced, symmetrical look that blends with the other facial features for aesthetic appeal and overall beauty.

Dr. Eric Cerrati is the recipient of prestigious fellowship training under one of the most renowned facial plastic surgeons in the world. He is double board certified as a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Cerrati has years of experience performing all manner of cosmetic and repair surgeries and procedures, including various forms of rhinoplasty. His Park City office is equipped for performing these and other types of surgery for the convenience of his patients.

Who is a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Many people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose, either from its size, shape or some irregularity that makes it too noticeable and embarrassing. Some individuals are born with congenital defects that make breathing difficult or cause some other problem. Still, others suffer trauma to their nose through sports, accidents or other causes and need repairs, ranging from simple broken noses to severe reconstruction.

Basically, anyone in good general health who has a problem with their nose is a candidate for rhinoplasty. Dr. Cerrati will always meet with a patient during a private consultation to discuss their goals for a rhinoplasty. Many changes can be made to the nose, but some things cannot be done for a variety of reasons. Dr. Cerrati will explain the procedures available and what each can realistically accomplish. He can also discuss non-surgical rhinoplasty options using facial fillers to affect short-term changes.

What About Teen Rhinoplasty?

There are situations when a teen’s appearance causes them to become the brunt of ridicule or teasing, and cosmetic enhancements could help. Dr. Cerrati can perform teen rhinoplasty to make changes that will improve your teen’s appearance. This is typically an option after the facial features have ceased growing, usually between the ages of 14 and 17.

This is an option for teens, but only after careful consideration with the teen and his or her parents. Dr. Cerrati understands the peer pressure teens face concerning their appearance and how that affects acceptance. He will consult with your family and discuss the options available in a consultation at his South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices.

What Can Be Done Through Rhinoplasty?

There are several methods for making revisions to the different aspects of the nose. Procedures can be done to change or improve:

  • Large noses
  • Small noses
  • Large nostrils
  • Hump or bump on the nasal bridge
  • Bulbous tip
  • Flaring tip
  • Depressed bridge
  • Deviated septum
  • Crooked nose
  • Collapsed nasal valves
  • Nasal reconstruction

Each procedure requires unique and precise techniques to make the desired changes. Incisions are hidden inside the nose, in the folds of the nose or underneath the nose. Many changes require the removal, replacement or manipulation of bone, cartilage or nasal tissues. Consequently, recovery times from rhinoplasty surgeries can vary. Recovery involves time to allow bruising and swelling to fade, usually taking 7-10 days for a complete recovery.

Dr. Cerrati can provide more precise information about the different procedures that would help you reach your aesthetic and functional goals in a confidential rhinoplasty consultation. Nose jobs are a popular procedure for both men and women, and there are specific refinements to rhinoplasty for each. Call or message us online to schedule your rhinoplasty consultation today.

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!
