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.

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!!!
