Facelift techniques have advanced significantly over the years, and among the latest innovations, the vertical facelift stands out as a superior and highly effective approach. Dr. Eric Cerrati, a world-class facial plastic surgeon based in Park City, UT, offers this advanced procedure to rejuvenate and enhance your facial appearance naturally and comprehensively.

Traditional Facelift vs. Vertical Facelift

The vertical facelift can be well understood and appreciated when comparing this procedure to a traditional facelift.

Vertical Facelift:

  1. Focus on the Cheek Area: This technique specifically targets aging changes around the mouth, such as drooping cheeks, smile lines, marionette lines, and jowls. By focusing on the mid-face, it addresses some of the most noticeable signs of aging.
  2. Vertical Lift: The vertical facelift combats gravity by lifting facial tissues upwards, creating a more youthful and naturally lifted appearance.
  3. Deep Tissue Engagement: This method works with the deeper layers of facial tissues, ensuring a comprehensive rejuvenation that appears natural and long-lasting.
  4. Natural Appearance: Unlike traditional facelifts that can sometimes result in a stretched or flattened look, the vertical facelift maintains the natural fullness and contours of the cheeks, contributing to a youthful and balanced appearance.
  5. Small Incisions: This procedure uses smaller incisions, which not only reduce scarring but also facilitate a quicker and more comfortable recovery.

Traditional Facelift:

  • Horizontal Tightening: Traditional facelift surgery typically pulls the skin horizontally towards the ears, which can sometimes lead to a stretched or unnatural look, especially around the cheeks.

Is the Vertical Facelift Right for You?

The vertical facelift is ideal for individuals who desire a natural-looking rejuvenation that addresses multiple signs of aging without the extensive alterations often associated with traditional facelifts. By focusing on the mid-face and utilizing advanced techniques, Dr. Cerrati’s vertical facelift ensures a harmonious and youthful result.

The Science Behind Vertical Facelift

The vertical facelift is not merely about tightening the skin but involves a sophisticated understanding of the facial structure and the natural aging process. This technique lifts the face in a more vertical direction, which aligns better with the natural pull of gravity, enhancing the overall rejuvenation effect.

Benefits of Vertical Facelift for Facial Rejuvenation

There are many advantages to choosing a Vertical Facelift procedure with Dr. Cerrati, including the following:

  • Natural Cheek Lift: Elevates the cheeks, creating a youthful heart-shaped face and higher cheekbones without the need for implants or additional fat transfers.
  • Mouth and Neck Restoration: This procedure effectively lifts the corners of the mouth that sag with age and eliminates jowls and the appearance of a “turkey neck,” resulting in a smoother and more youthful neck contour.
  • Minimally Invasive: With smaller incisions and a focus on deep tissue engagement, the vertical facelift offers a less invasive option with quicker recovery times.

How Much Does a Vertical Facelift Cost?

The cost of a vertical facelift can vary based on several factors, including the specific needs of the patient and the geographic location. For a precise estimate tailored to your individual situation, it is best to consult directly with Dr. Cerrati. During your consultation, Dr. Cerrati will provide a detailed assessment and discuss the expected costs based on your unique facial anatomy and desired outcomes.

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!
