Facial scarring often has a powerful psychological and emotional impact. When your skin becomes damaged, the body’s own natural processes kick in to heal the wound, often leaving a scar. Scars can also be the result of severe trauma, acne, infection, burns or even previous surgeries. These highly noticeable marks can be a source of embarrassment and make the individual self-conscious about their appearance.

Scar revision is one type of reconstructive surgery offered by Dr. Eric Cerrati at his office in Park City, Utah. The overall goal of scar revision surgery is to rework the scar tissue so it can be made less noticeable. It is important to note that every facial scar is unique. Some patients may require more than one scar revision surgery to make the necessary corrections. Timing is also a critical factor, and most scars can be revised after 9-12 months to allow the scar to fully develop and mature.

Advanced Utah Scar Revision Techniques

Dr. Cerrati takes many factors into account when performing scar revision plastic surgery. The nature and placement of the scar, the patient’s age and skin type all contribute to how the scar must be revised. In addition to aesthetic concerns about scars, they can also affect facial functions like smiling, blinking and even eyelid function.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Cerrati, he will determine which treatment is appropriate for your facial scarring. These are common facial scar revision procedures Dr. Cerrati can use:

  • Dermabrasion
  • Direct Excision
  • Geometric Broken Line Closure
  • Laser Therapy
  • W-Plasty
  • Z-Plasty

Before deciding which treatment will best correct your scars, Dr. Cerrati will thoroughly examine them and learn about their cause. He will also explain the ins and outs of a scar revision procedure and what you can expect. You can be confident that you are in the care of the most extensively trained and credentialed facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in the area.

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!
