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.

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!
