Dr. Rodger Shortt - Plastic Surgeon

“I’m Dr Rodger Shortt and I love being a plastic surgeon. I love the variety of cases, the intricacies of the procedures, and the attention to detail that is required to make a surgery truly successful.

My favourite part of doing what I do is the big reveal. I love the look on my patients’ faces when they see the beautiful changes I have been able to make for them. The stories that patients have told me are incredibly gratifying. Do I feel lucky to be a plastic surgeon? I sure do and I feel thankful every day.

When it comes to results, my overlying goal is always to provide results that look natural. It doesn’t matter if patients are looking for filler and Botox®, a breast augmentation, a tummy tuck or even a Facelift – the results should always look natural. Sometimes natural means doing less. But in the case of cosmetic plastic surgery less is often more.

I have a personal belief that I am first and foremost a doctor. I believe to my core that my job is to care for my patients and provide the best advice and treatment to them. Oftentimes, it means helping them decide what is the best option for them and then performing surgery to attempt to match their goals. My mission for all my patients is to provide great care and exceptional results. I take lots of time with my patients so that they have all the information they need to make the best choices for themselves. If they are comfortable with me and what I have to say, then we proceed.”

Surgery can dramatically affect your life.

However, you should only have surgery when it is appropriate. I believe it is important to discuss all the different options with my patients to ensure that they are fully informed. I like to take ample time so I can evaluate their individual needs and build a rapport, with the goal of providing excellent care and amazing results.

My Advice for Those Considering Breast Augmentation

An area of plastic surgery that I sub-specialize in is surgery of the breast. I love sculpting and creating a beautiful and natural looking breast. I do so with breast implants, with fat transfer and even by moving tissue from one area to another There is no perfect surgery, and everyone needs something tailored to their own needs and goals. Some patients would look great with a small breast implant that has a teardrop shape; while others may want something larger and fuller at the top of the breast.

Achieving the Natural Contour of the Bikini Bridge

What is the secret to creating a natural looking tummy tuck? For some time, I have been trying to advance the tummy tuck techniques that l learned during my plastic surgery training, to create a more beautiful, contoured abdomen. One of my favourite surgical techniques is to create a hollowed-out area of the lower abdomen, just inside the hip bones.

Testimonials

Huge Breasts Be Gone!

Absolutely hands down the best! Dr Shortt is very skilled and has a warm, caring personality along with a sense of humour:) You are in the best hands should you choose Dr. Shortt. Thank you Dr Shortt and Joanne for making this a great experience!

He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations.

Dr. Shortt performed breast reduction/tummy tuck surgery and I am very happy with the results. He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations. I’m a 64 yr. old woman who has lived with shoulder and back pain for years. I decided to have a breast reduction in the hope of easing this discomfort and improving my quality of life in retirement. I was able to discuss questions and concerns easily with Dr. Shortt. He has a quiet, kind manner , complemented by a good sense of humour. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Shortt to my family and friends. The office staff are also very professional, friendly and helpful.

Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind.

Dr Shortt was has been incredible! I went to him in search of options for correctly my breast asymmetry. I read a lot of reviews for plastic surgeons in and around Toronto and I chose Dr Shortt because his reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Initially, I was interested in fat grafting because I feared an implant would be obvious. At my consultation, Dr Shortt explained the advantages and disadvantages of both options. His opinion was that an implant would actually be the better choice because breast augmentation with an implant is much more predictable and due to the difference in my breasts, I would probably need multiple sessions of fat grafting, which would get quite expensive. After the consultation, I understood why an implant would be the better choice for me and my body. He wrote a letter on my behalf advocating that my surgery be covered by OHIP, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan, and they agreed to cover it! I really appreciated that Dr Shortt was honest about what he thought would make me the most happy (an implant in one side), not what would make him the most money (multiple sessions of fat grafting). Throughout the whole process, he was patient, understanding, and confident. His sense of humour put me at ease on surgery day and I couldn’t be happier with the results of my surgery. I didn’t want bigger breasts, just more symmetrical ones and he managed to balance me out beautifully without even touching my bigger left breast. My surgery was three weeks ago and except for the scar (which is healing beautifully) you can’t even tell I had surgery. My new breast looks and feels great and I can’t stop buying pretty new bras now that any bra will work for me. I can’t wait for bikini season! Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind. As soon as you meet him, you’ll see that he truly cares about your happiness. Thank you, Dr Shortt!
