Fillers – Juvéderm™, Voluma™, Restylane®, Emervel

SMOOTH, IMPROVE AND SOFTEN YOUR APPEARANCE BY ADDING VOLUME TO YOUR SKIN.

Facial fillers are non surgical treatments which can be used for facial rejuvenation. The goal with fillers is to improve your appearance by adding volume in an area that is “deflated”.

There are many types of fillers, however Dr Shortt prefers using Hyaluronic Acid. This is a safe, naturally occurring sugar molecule that plumps-up the area treated. Dr Shortt has many different brands of hyaluronic acid available, and chooses them based on the area of your face being treated. The most common areas treated with fillers are the lower eyelids (tear troughs), cheeks, and around the mouth and chin, lips, and jowls. It can also be used in a variety of other areas, based on the individual needs of the patient. In appropriately chosen patients, it will soften signs of aging and give you a more youthful appearance.

Service Video

In your consultation with Dr Shortt, you will have a chance to discuss areas of your face that concern you and what the best treatment options are. Dr Shortt will explain the realistic benefits you can hope to achieve and compare that to other options which may potentially be more suited to your needs.

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

When to consider having this procedure?

Patients generally looking to restore a more youthful appearance, are typically aged 35+ years (but may be younger if they desire fillers for other reasons), and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

N

desire to rejuvenate their facial appearance without undergoing surgery and anaesthetic

N

restore lost volume in the hollows of the cheeks due to the aging process

N

recreate the appearance of high cheek bones

N

refresh their current appearance without looking “overdone”

N

correction of under eye “bags” (tear trough deformity) or desire to contour the nasolabial folds, chin or cheeks

What is the recovery time?

The recovery time after facial fillers is minimal, in general. You may have some redness on the day and bruising that usually resolves in a few days. During your private consultation, these non surgical procedures will be discussed, as well as potential risks or complications, expected benefit and the recovery time specific to the procedure you had done.

Fabulous Doctor, Extremely smart ( like Mensa IQ ) with attention to detail.

Fabulous Doctor, Extremely smart ( like Mensa IQ) with attention to detail. Confident, clear, and precise in conversations. Hand surgery was done extremely well with 4 breaks in one shattered bone. Bone was wrapped and pinned in titanium chain links and micro screwed. Recover has been excellent I have 100% of mobility in my hand and work in home renovation. The scar is small pin sized line, not noticeable; no extra bumps or blemishes. Truly a five star surgeon. I am hoping he does face surgery.

I was so pleased that my GP referred me to Dr Shortt

I was so pleased that my GP referred me to Dr Shortt, for knee surgery. Excellent caring Doctor, if you need plastic surgery place Dr. Shortt, at the top of your list. Great experience, great results, this Doc, is a 10!

I simply cannot find enough superlatives to express my gratitude

I simply cannot find enough superlatives to express my gratitude to Dr. Short for his wonderful work.
I have, for many years now, had numerous black moles and dark spots on my face and they seemed to be multiplying. Dr. Short removed over 40 of these and when I left his office, I have to admit, I was worried. I looked pretty rough. But there are no crevices or dips in my skin (of which I thought there’d be many) and most incredibly there is no visible scarring at all. It’s hard for me to say how much better I feel now. I have a refreshed, natural look. I am a career musician and in the public eye so, needless to say, I feel so much more confident about my appearance.
Dr. Short was honest with me from the beginning. He clearly explained options to me but never made me feel that he was up selling other services. I was fearful and had huge reservations about having anybody touch my face but everything about my experience with Dr. Short and his staff was positive and I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend him. He has my sincere thanks.

You can tell the enthusiasm and passion Dr.Shortt has for his work

From the get go the professionalism and expertise I had received far surpassed those from other consultations I had done. I had gone in for a breast augmentation and am amazed from the results. You can tell the enthusiasm and passion Dr.Shortt has for his work. He had stated that afterwards my breast would look “perfect”, I figured anything would be better then what I had. Unbelieving then, here I am now absolutely thrilled with the results. I had a tattoo where the implant incision would be, to my surprise Dr. Shortt was able to work around it as well.
