BEAUTY IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL IN PLASTIC SURGERY.
“Breast surgery is something that I am really passionate about. I find it extremely rewarding to create beautiful breasts for my patients and love the happiness I bring people.” Dr Rodger Shortt, FRCSC
Women who are dissatisfied with their silhouette or bra and cup size often request a private consultation to discuss their cosmetic breast surgery options. There are many procedures to consider and all are dependent on the individual needs of each patient. Whether it is a breast augmentation (enlargement) involving implants or some fat grafting, or a breast lift (mastopexy) and some liposuction, it is important to discuss all your breast surgery options with your plastic surgeon.
Oftentimes, women seek a private consultation to discuss other breast surgeries such as a breast reduction to reduce back pain and discomfort, self consciousness about their appearance due to breast size, or to correct asymmetry in the left and right breasts. Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure often performed to rebuild the shape, symmetry and size of the breasts after surgery from breast cancer, including lumpectomy or mastectomy.
During a private consultation, Dr Shortt will take a thorough medical history from you, discuss your surgical breast options and what you hope to achieve, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, discuss what to expect pre and post breast surgery, and your estimated recovery time.
Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.
Breast Surgery Procedures
“The favourite part of my job is the BIG REVEAL when patients get to see their new breasts for the first time. My goal is to create the most perfect breasts I can for you and to make sure to care for you before, during and after surgery until you and I are satisfied that you are healed and looking your best.”
– Dr Rodger Shortt, FRCSC
