Face Cosmetic Surgery
LOOK LIKE YOUR YOUNGER-SELF. AGE GRACEFULLY.
The goal of facial plastic surgery is always to look fresh and healthy, yet never being obvious to anyone but your closest family or friends that you actually did anything.
The desire to “turn back the clock” and look like your younger self often leads patients to inquire about facial rejuvenation. A facelift involves the surgical tightening of the skin around the face and neck, the removal of wrinkles, and the repositioning of the volume of your cheeks, providing a youthful, refreshed and natural appearance. In addition to a facelift, facial rejuvenation can also involve a neck lift, eye lift (blepharoplasty) or brow lift.
Skin care, lasers, fillers, and neurotoxins (Botox) will all be considered, as facial rejuvenation takes into consideration all the signs of aging, not just the loose or sagging skin. Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is another cosmetic surgical procedure that can improve the functionality or physical appearance of the nose. The function and appearance of the nose can be affected by trauma, genetics, or compromised breathing conditions.
During a private consultation, Dr Shortt will discuss your desired surgical outcome, while evaluating the structure, gravity, volume and texture of your face to carefully develop a surgical plan that is appropriate for you.

There is really nothing that will make your skin glow and erase wrinkles the way that laser resurfacing can. Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler have raved about the results they have obtained from laser treatments. I have had patients tell me that they are often told they look 10-20 years younger!
It’s February, the days are shorter, there is a bitter chill in the air, the central heating is blasting, and there are several more months of winter to go. With the winter months, your face can begin to feel quite dry and tight, as the winter elements and central heating play havoc on your skin.
One of the most common questions I hear from patients about facial rejuvenation, is “at what age/when should I consider having Botox®?” The reality is, facial rejuvenation can involve different facial injectables, such as Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®, in combination with facial fillers such as Juvéderm™, Voluma™, and Restylane®. I thought this would be a good opportunity to write a blog post to explain their differences and how to achieve a patient’s desired out-come.
