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.

Procedures for Men

Some of the most common surgical and non-surgical plastic surgery treatments for men include:

facial rejuvenation (surgical and non-surgical treatments)

liposuction (to remove fat in the love handles, paunch or chest areas)

gynaecomastia (treatment of male breasts or man-boobs)

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

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.

The day of my surgery Dr. Shortt and his team made me feel very comfortable and well taken care of. Thank you again !

Dr. Shortt has a great eye and is a creative visionary

Everyone reacts differently to a diagnosis / treatment of breast cancer. For me, after the mastectomy, I no longer felt whole. I decided reconstructive surgery was the answer which was very intense – but no regrets. The results were good but I still felt a little mismatched. My surgeon referred me to Dr. Shortt. Like so many others on this site, I felt like he knew exactly what I was looking for and how to get there. Dr. Shortt has a great eye and is a creative visionary that can determine what need to be done, coupled with the skill to do it. What really differentiates him from the rest though, is his empathy and understanding. You don’t often find doctors who are good at combining the science with compassion. This was a surprising and greatly appreciated aspect of my care. I am 4 weeks post op now and I have to say the results are spectacular. I feel like the sisters have been reunited and I am whole again. If you have had reconstructive surgery and feel you need a little more finessing, take my advice and make it happen. You will be glad you did. I would highly recommend Dr. Shortt to my closest friends and family and to anyone looking for cosmetic improvements.

Thank you again,

Susan

Amazing plastic surgeon

Amazing plastic surgeon who was initially referred to me by another plastic surgeon. From my first consultation, Dr Shortt immediately knew what surgical procedures were the best option for my situation. No hesitation in diagnosis and recommended plan of action. I’m a breast cancer survivor and I thought a breast reconstruction was a lost cause for me due to my extension radiation treatments and consequential skin damage. Dr Shortt was very methodical and professional throughout the entire 18 month process. Before each surgery, I witnessed assertiveness and confidence with a sure hand mapping my body with his sharpie pen. He made me feel at ease with his good sense of humour and music.
My breast cancer journey is at long last over and I am quite happy with the final results. I feel rejuvenated and have gained my confidence back. I am so glad that I didn’t hesitate with my initial decision to go forward with the breast reconstruction. Thank you so much Dr. Shortt.

Nicest doctor ever

Dr. Shortt made my experience so wonderful and easy, he listened to all my concerns and was so helpful with everything. I had small implants put in to correct my tuberous breast and didn’t want too much of a visible change in size, he did exactly that and was so helpful throughout the whole process and made things very easy. I can’t thank I’m enough!

Amazing Experience with Dr. Shortt

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Shortt and his staff. I am so thankful to have had such a skilled surgeon and I am extremely happy with the results and I am glad I went through with the procedure/ chose Dr. Shortt as my surgeon. When I went for my pre-op check-up with my GP he asked who my surgeon was and when I told him it was Dr. Shortt he said that Dr. Shortt is a very good surgeon/ “one of the best.” The consultation process was excellent, I had more questions than the average patient. I asked specific questions about the procedure and the techniques that he uses for the surgery and he was more than happy to answer all my questions and let me know that I could come back for further consultations if I had more questions etc.

Feel and look better than ever before.
