Breast Augmentation –
(Breast Enlargement)

REDEFINE YOUR SILHOUETTE.

Breast augmentation is also known as breast enlargement and is a common cosmetic surgery procedure that increases breast size. This procedure is popular with women who have small breasts, or who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or weight loss, or from the aging process.

Breast implants used for this procedure can also help to improve the sagging of the breasts and increase firmness. Dr Shortt will speak to you during your consultation to explain the details of the procedure, what to expect pre and post surgery, and the likely post operative result. Together with Dr Shortt, you will decide on the type of implants, the location and shape, the position of the scars, and the size of the implants.

For some women, fat grafting may be a better choice. Breast fat transfer entails liposuction to remove fat from a stubborn area on the body. This fat is then prepared and injected into the breast. It is a very meticulous procedure and can be time consuming. However, the results can be exquisite. Your breasts will feel perfectly natural because it is your own fat being used. Other benefits include liposuction to that area of fat which otherwise never seems to disappear and virtually no scar.

Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.

When to consider having this procedure?

In general, candidates for breast augmentation (breast enlargement) surgery are aged 18 – 65 years, are in good health and are able to have general anaesthetic, and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

N

dissatisfied with current breast cup size and shape

N

sagging or deflated breasts due to post-pregnancy or weight loss

N

lost breast volume due to the aging process

N

asymmetry (different sizes) of the left and right breasts, in shape or size

N

desire to enhance your current silhouette

N

breast enlargement to accompany another procedure such as liposuction, tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck

N

breast augmentation post breast cancer treatment

N

Breast fat transfer can also be used to conceal an implant that may be visible or palpable in very thin patients

What is the recovery time?

In general, the recovery time following a breast augmentation procedure is approximately 3-6 weeks. As with any surgery under general anaesthetic, there are potential risks or complications to consider. During your private consultation,
Dr Shortt will take a thorough medical history from you, discuss your surgical options, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, discuss what to expect pre and post breast augmentation surgery, and your estimated recovery time.

Inverted nipples: How common are they?

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.

Reviews

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results! Dr. Shortt and his staff are wonderful and very talented. I definitely recommend this surgeon to anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns, and he lets you know what’s possible and what isn’t – he will never do something that will make you look fake or “done.” Dr. Shortt likes to say that he will make you into a better version of yourself, not someone else. He goes above and beyond to achieve your goals and truly cares about his patients.

I had a septorhinoplasty done to correct my breathing and the appearance of my nose. I have always been insecure about the size and shape of my nose – I had a bit of a bulbous tip and a prominent dorsal hump. I am so thrilled with the results of my surgery! In addition to breathing better, I am also feeling a lot more confident. I used to freak out if anyone took a photo of me from the side, but now I actually encourage it!

The support staff at Briarwood are wonderful, too. They make the experience comfortable and easy.

I am extremely happy that I finally took this step

I just want to say Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on my tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). I am very pleased! The care I received prior to, during, and after my surgery has been great. Dr. Shortt and the stuff at Briarwood cosmetic surgical centre have been very thorough and detail oriented when tending to my needs, concerns and questions. I am extremely happy that I finally took this step and LOVE my results. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and am glad I chose Dr. Shortt for my surgery.

Dr Shortt did an awesome job

I recently had a breast reduction and am so happy with the final result – Dr Shortt did an awesome job!

Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result

I recently had a scar revision surgery to repair scars from a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result it is more than I could have hoped for. I am so grateful to Dr Shortt for his empathy kindness and professionalism. His staff reflected that image and were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Even though I had a bilateral I feel very happy when I see myself in the mirror. That says everything.

Best Choice I Made!

The stretch marks, loose skin and a deformed belly button from my twin pregnancy really affected my self confidence. Dr. Shortt helped me get that “old me” feeling back! He is patient, professional and truly cares for you during the recovery process. I always felt that Dr. Shortt and his team were there when I needed questions answered. Before I went for my surgery, I had no idea how important the weeks and months after would be. Now, I couldn’t be happier that I chose Dr. Shortt to be my doctor. He also makes sure that you know what to expect and that made the journey so much easier for me. Best choice I made! I finally feel like myself again.

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt
