Men

LOOK GREAT FOR YOUR AGE. RESTORE YOUR YOUNGER, ENERGETIC LOOK.

For men more than women, plastic surgery needs to be subtle. Men want the results, but they don’t want people to know they had any work done. Men want to look refreshed. They want to look strong, vibrant and confident. They want to look athletic. The important thing though is to not overdo it.

Men are becoming more and more interested in taking advantage of plastic surgery to enhance their appearance and the way they feel about themselves. As we age, we loose the quality of our skin, wrinkles develop and skin hangs. This creates jowls, wobbly necks, heavy upper lids and eyebrows. The lower lids start to bulge and there becomes a clear demarcation between the eyelid skin and the cheeks. Surgery can improve all of these areas.

For men the goal is to look vibrant, strong, and confident for your age. We are not trying to make you look twenty years younger, but rather a more awesome version of you. We know that you don’t want anyone in the world to know you had anything done. That is why the changes made are more discreet. Get the refreshed look that you want, without the telltale signs.

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

The goals in facial surgery for men include:

Make you look great for your age

Subtle changes so people won’t know you had surgery done

Most common surgical treatments of the face for men include blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and brow lift

The most common non-surgical treatments are fillers, Botox (R) and laser rejuvenation

Gynaecomastia (also known as male breasts or man boobs) can be one of the most distressing cosmetic conditions that men have.

It can happen to anyone. They can be fit or overweight. Men with this often avoid taking off their shirts in public. They often avoid going swimming or to the beach. If they do, they wear a shirt. Often they wear two shirts to better conceal the area, or even a compression shirt under their regular clothes. They complain that they can’t wear the tight fitting clothes they want to because of their chests. Often guys work out like crazy to get super fit, but won’t show anyone.

The good news is there are treatments to consider for gynaecomastia, including plastic surgery. The most important thing is to make sure that it is not a health concern. There are a number of causes for gynaecomastia that are perfectly natural, but there are others that are not, and need to be ruled out. A consultation with your doctor or a specialist can help diagnose the cause of gynaecomastia.

Liposuction is an amazing technique for improving contour in a stubborn area.

Liposuction involves removing fat by suction through a cannula that is gently passed back and forth in the area of fat for removal. It is best suited for people that do not have a lot of extra fat, but rather an area that is stubborn.

The most common areas for men to have liposuction include:

the love handles

the paunch below the belly button

around the chest for gynaecomastia

Liposuction can do a great job to remove these areas of fat. The skin then tightens up over the next couple of months leaving a flattened, more aesthetically pleasing contour. The best part is that the scars are very tiny and fade away over time, so that it is very difficult for anyone to know you had surgery.

Testimonials

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.

Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind.

Dr Shortt was has been incredible! I went to him in search of options for correctly my breast asymmetry. I read a lot of reviews for plastic surgeons in and around Toronto and I chose Dr Shortt because his reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Initially, I was interested in fat grafting because I feared an implant would be obvious. At my consultation, Dr Shortt explained the advantages and disadvantages of both options. His opinion was that an implant would actually be the better choice because breast augmentation with an implant is much more predictable and due to the difference in my breasts, I would probably need multiple sessions of fat grafting, which would get quite expensive. After the consultation, I understood why an implant would be the better choice for me and my body. He wrote a letter on my behalf advocating that my surgery be covered by OHIP, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan, and they agreed to cover it! I really appreciated that Dr Shortt was honest about what he thought would make me the most happy (an implant in one side), not what would make him the most money (multiple sessions of fat grafting). Throughout the whole process, he was patient, understanding, and confident. His sense of humour put me at ease on surgery day and I couldn’t be happier with the results of my surgery. I didn’t want bigger breasts, just more symmetrical ones and he managed to balance me out beautifully without even touching my bigger left breast. My surgery was three weeks ago and except for the scar (which is healing beautifully) you can’t even tell I had surgery. My new breast looks and feels great and I can’t stop buying pretty new bras now that any bra will work for me. I can’t wait for bikini season! Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind. As soon as you meet him, you’ll see that he truly cares about your happiness. Thank you, Dr Shortt!
