Injectables

REFRESH YOUR LOOK WITH FACIAL INJECTABLES.

RESTORE LOST FACIAL VOLUME, REDUCE FINE LINES AND WRINKLES.

Facial rejuvenation doesn’t always involve surgery. A great way to get rid of that “tired look” and soften fine lines and wrinkles is to consider facial injectables. From fillers to neuromodulators such as Botox® or Disport®, there are quite a few injectables to consider.

Facial injectables such as Botox® or Disport® can be used to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, brow lines, lip lines and downturned lateral lips that give the impression of sadness and aging. Botox® can even be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) by injecting into the sweat glands of the armpits, feet or hands. Botox® works by weakening the muscles it is injected into, and can last up to 3-6 months. Its full effect usually occurs at 2 weeks post-injection.

Botox can be used effectively to:

 

decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face

reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes

diminish frown lines, forehead creases and brow lines

give a slight elevation to the lateral eyebrow

reduce excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis

Facial fillers such as Juvéderm™, Voluma™, Restylane® and Emervel® are non-surgical treatments which can be used for facial rejuvenation. There are many types of fillers, with hyaluronic acid being the most popular. This is a safe, naturally occurring sugar molecule that plumps-up the area treated. The goal with fillers is to improve your appearance by adding volume in an area that is “deflated”. In appropriately chosen patients, it will soften signs of aging and give you a more youthful appearance. Fillers can last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the product used and the area being treated.

Fillers can effectively be used to:

 

  • rejuvenate the face, without undergoing surgery and anaesthetic
  • restore lost volume in the hollows of the cheeks
  • recreate the appearance of high cheek bones
  • refresh your appearance without looking “overdone”
  • correct under eye “bags” (tear trough deformity)
  • contour the nasolabial folds, chin or cheeks

Testimonials

All in all I can not say enough good things about my experience with both Dr. Shortt and his staff

Dr Short t was my surgeon for breast reduction, tummy tuck, bra-line back lift and panniculectomy. I was at ease upon our first meeting. I felt he genuinely was on my side and interested in my well being. Although the surgeries I have undergone have been major , the pain was surprisingly minor. I have had excellent recoveries and shockingly minimal scaring. I could not be more satisfied with having been his patient. I did some research about plastic surgery and costs were in line with others. All in all I can not say enough good things about my experience with both Dr. Shortt and his staff

I had a bump on my thumb removed by Dr Shortt a few years ago.

I had a bump on my thumb removed by Dr Shortt a few years ago. It was e third time I’d had it removed, as it kept growing back, but since Dr Shortt removed it, it hasn’t returned!

I’m very pleased with the results of my explant surgery.

Dr Shortt was recommended to me for my explant surgery. I was informed he was the best surgeon for the job and that I would be very happy with the results.
We met on a couple of occasions before the surgery and discussed the options of new implants, fat grafting or just an explant. He was courteous, respectful and very knowledgeable.
He respected my decision to just have the explant surgery and didn’t try to sell me on other procedures. He is all about what’s best for his patients. When I had my pre-op at the hospital, the intake nurse couldn’t say enough wonderful things about him and his skills. That solidified it for me.
I’m very pleased with the results of my explant surgery. It was a unique case in that the implants had completely liquified. They were done 8 years ago by another recommended surgeon in Burlington, not Dr Shortt himself. It seems they were just defective.
Dr. Shortt noted that he had never seen any implants come out in that condition. I appreciate that he is following up with the manufacturer to inform them of the situation.
if you are choosing implants, please do your research and educate yourself and if you choose to have them done, Dr. Shortt is your guy.

Dr. Shortt is a true professional, with an amazing bedside manner.

Recently I had Dr Shortt remove a large lump from the back of my leg. His genuinely friendly manner immediately put me at ease.
In the hospital, he explained how the procedure was going to work, which made me feel comfortable. The actual procedure took less than 5 minutes, with no pain. I was completely relaxed, knowing I was in good hands. Dr. Shortt is a true professional, with an amazing bedside manner. I’d trust him to do absolutely any surgical procedure and would feel confident that the outcome would be very successful.

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.

Breast Reconstruction at 55 and a New Lease on Life!!

I went to Dr. Shortt for breast reduction in 2015 and things went sideways when they found an early form of breast cancer (DCIS). It hadn’t shown up on the mammogram 6 months earlier. Dr. Rodger delivered the news, and was gentle and frank about my choices. I had been thrilled and pleasantly surprised with the breast reduction. I was equally happy about what followed after the cancer news; no chemo or radiation required: just a series of surgeries starting with a unilateral mastectomy, DIEP Flap surgery for breast reconstruction, nipple reconstruction and scar remediation, all ending with a nipple tattoo by one of his expert colleagues. I’ve never been so well cared for in my life. Dr. Shortt and his teams, both at the office and in the OR, formed a circle of care that kept me comfortable, confident and happy.
Dr. Shortt has fully embraced social media, which translates into access to tons of information through his blogs, links about procedures (i.e. DIEP flap surgery), and the ability to ask him questions remembered after appointments. He’s a straight shooter and a healer with a quick wit and a world of personal experience. I can’t recommend him enough!

Feel and look better than ever before.
