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. Both his South Jordan and Salt Lake City offices are 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.

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!
