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 offices in Salt Lake City and South Jordan, 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.

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!!!

Dr. Cerrati is absolutely amazing! I was so happy with my fillers that I received. Definitely will be returning to him again! I trust him and recommended him 100% to all my family and friends. He always does his best to make sure his patients come out with the best possible outcome!

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!
