Vascular malformations are a unique type of birthmark that typically grows as a child grows. With continued growth, they may become more noticeable and can even affect other bodily components or processes. Many times, vascular malformation treatment for children is required to prevent complications or relieve symptoms. Dr. Eric Cerrati can treat pediatric vascular malformations at his offices in Salt Lake City and South Jordan, Utah.

The various types of vascular malformations are named according to the type of blood vessel that is most affected. Arteries, veins, capillaries and even lymphatic vessels can form vascular anomalies. Other names commonly used for vascular malformations include lymphangiomas, vascular gigantism and arteriovenous malformations. Most vascular formations present more of an aesthetic challenge to patients, but sometimes they can have medical effects that require treatment.

Experienced Treatment for Pediatric Vascular Anomalies

Dr. Cerrati is sensitive to the emotions and feelings that often accompany a child presenting a vascular malformation. Both parents and the child can be seriously concerned about any vascular anomaly and its effects. Other children can be cruel in their negative treatment of peers with visible birthmarks, so aesthetic concerns are completely legitimate.

Treatment for pediatric vascular anomalies is tailored to each specific patient’s condition. Steroids, embolization, injections, clotting medications and laser therapy are some of the treatment options that can be used to reduce or eliminate vascular malformations. Dr. Cerrati may also use a combination of treatments to obtain the best results. He will explain each option recommended after a thorough examination of your son or daughter’s particular malformation and its location.

For experienced treatment for pediatric vascular malformations, contact us to arrange your private consultation with Dr. Cerrati at his South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices.

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!!!
