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

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.
