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.

I highly recommend Dr. Shortt

I highly recommend Dr. Shortt. I recently had laser surgery on my face and am very pleased with the results. Dr. Shortt was patient, understanding and answered all my questions during our consultation. I later had some concerns about the surgery and Dr. Shortt listened to them and modified the procedure for me. I felt completely confident in his skill, expertise and professionalism and am very glad I went ahead with the surgery.

Thank You for Making Me Real Again!

Over the past 7 months, I have seen Dr Shortt for 2 procedures – breast implant removal, followed by breast augmentation using fat transfer (separate procedures). Dr Shortt is an amazing surgeon. His professionalism, perfectionism in his work, his bedside manner and not to mention his sense of humour are all on point. He never tries to “up sell” and truly listens. His assistant, Joanne, is excellent.
From my first consult to my post-op after care, the experience has been exceptional.

Absolutely hands down the best!

Absolutely hands down the best! Dr Shortt is very skilled surgeon and has a warm, caring personality along with a sense of humour which will keep you at ease throughout the whole process. You are in the best hands should you choose Dr. Shortt. Thank you Dr Shortt and Joanne for making my surgical journey a great experience!

It’s Been 28 Years …

I was reviewing breast transfer procedures on real self. Dr. Shorrt had comment on a previous post. I checked out his profile/website and decided to go for a consultation. I was glad that he actually conducted the consultation. I’ve been to one where the Dr.’s assistant did the initial one. He was very easy to talk , to express your concerns. He was very knowledge. Some doctors are in rush to explain things. “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression” . I felt very comfortable right away. I knew I wanted him to be my surgeon.

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

Thankful for High Standards

I had lost an excessive amount of weight. After success in living a healthier lifestyle I found that the extra skin impacted my health in other ways. Dr Short completed a Belt Lipectomy.
My experience through the consultation visits and pre and post surgery was very positive!
Dr. Shortt was detailed with my questions leaving nothing to my imagination, defining the realities I would experience throughout the process. He was specific through the preparatory work that needed to happen and made me feel connected and comfortable with the procedure.
Dr. Shortt is professional, extremely knowledgeable as a plastic surgeon, and has the ability to communicate to people with clarity during each appointment!
I have also appreciated the office environment and connections with Joanne as she answered my questions with efficiency and genuine care.
Dr. Shortt is highly skilled in what he does, and he has the character of caring and valuing as he speaks with you. Dr. Shortt wants great results for each person and sets a very high standard, in which I am grateful!
I am really happy with the whole process from start to finish and excited about the outcome of having this surgery!
Thank you Dr. Shortt!

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!

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!

I would 100% recommend Dr. Shortt and his staff to anyone who is considering breast reconstruction surgery.

felt comfortable with him from the first consultation appointment. He answered every question we had and was never in a rush. I am very grateful to Dr. Shortt for his expertise and his skills for making me feel like a whole woman again
Thank you so much !!

My experience with Dr. Shortt was great.

My experience with Dr. Shortt was great. I highly recommend Dr Shortt if you are considering any surgery. He did my breast reconstruction twice and each was very professional . He also took care of me after that so no concerns.

He was thorough, professional and clearly is the expert in his field.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Shortt for my initial assessment this week. My appointment was not only on time, but they were able to accommodate my early arrival. Dr. Shortt was a delight. He immediately put me at ease and was not in a rush. He was thorough, professional and clearly is the expert in his field. This is my second assessment and and I very happy that I held out for this referral.

Thank You Dr. Shortt

I wish I had had a breast reduction sooner; the improvement in how I feel physically and mentally is simply amazing. I could repeat so much of what others have said about Dr. Shortt; he is professional, knowleable and is quick with a funny quip when needed. I appreciate and am so grateful for his skill as a surgeon/artist. Joanne is always friendly and helpful and I appreciate her time in scheduling my surgery. Most definately recommend this Dr. Shortt and his team!

Great Doctor with a great front office staff.

Amazing experience

Dr. Shortt was very easy to talk to, he made me feel comfortable about having the breast reconstruction. I had a breast removed on May 25,2015 due to cancer. One of the cancer doctors in the Hamilton Cancer Center recommended Dr. Shortt. This was a great turning point in my life. I could not begin to tell you how great this experience was. He is so down to earth, kept me calm in talking about the surgery. If I had to tell another person dealing with breast cancer and having to have it removed, to see Dr. Shortt. This was a very traumatic experience to go through but this doctor made it easier to deal with the operation.

I highly recommend Dr Shortt if you are considering any surgery.

From his front office staff (Joanne) to his OR staff and Dr. Shortt himself, all made my experience a good one. I highly recommend Dr Shortt if you are considering any surgery.

I am very grateful to Dr. Shortt for his skills which have made me feel and look whole again.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, facing the necessity for a mastectomy and frightened of the unknown that lay ahead of me. I quickly researched the various breast reconstruction options including flap reconstruction and which plastic surgeons were skilled in this microsurgery procedure. I was EXTREMELY fortunately to learn about Dr. Shortt.
My reconstruction was a multi-step process over 2.5 years and during each consultation, surgery and post-op appointment, Dr. Shortt and his staff (Kristen, Joanne) were professional, compassionate and attentive to my questions.
I am very grateful to Dr. Shortt for his skills which have made me feel and look whole again. Thank you Dr. Shortt!

I am soo happy to have found Dr shortt..I feel so lucky

I am soo happy to have found Dr shortt..I feel soo lucky to have followed my gutt feeling and chose Dr shortt as my surgeon..I was between Dr shortt and another Hollywood Dr in the states..after having a skyp call with both of them..I felt instant comfort with Dr shortt.. he explained everything about the procedure ( the tummy thigh and breast lift) and really took time answering all my questions and concerns…I got very nervous as the day got closer.. but as soon as I saw him in person( I forgot to mention that I flew all the way from Dubai to Toronto for this and boy am I glad) as soon as I saw him in person I felt that sense of comfort I had during my skyp calls ..
Do now let me tell you about my recovery..I had the surgery and got discharged same day.. my breast lift was a piece of cake. I did feel nothing but a sense of discomfort to say the most.. however it was okaaay, controlable with meds..I walked immediately as per Dr shortt recommendation.. but I stayed home for the first 5 days because my meds were making me drowsy .. for the next 5 days .. off meds by now(i chose to do so because I got bored and s wanted to get out) it was torture I couldn’t walk more than an hour in the mall or so and it was very painful getting out of bed.. after 10 days it got soo much better .. at 15 days I was perfectly fine.

Nowabout my results..I am one month in and soo thrilled of the outcomes..I was soo ecstatic .. of my new set of knockers I was showing them to all my girlfriends.. they could not believe that I didn’t have implants in .. they were asking me to touch them to make sure and asked me are you sure Dr didn’t insert any kind of support ????????.. because there too perky with beautiful shape..Dr shortt not only does a lift.. apparently during the procedure.. somehow he shapes the fat as well to create fullness in the right places..ie more lifted breasts.. and i have to say i have heavy breasts i am 32DD so that was a phenomenal thing to achieve.. the scars are amazing almost invisible now.
About my tummy tuck..I have to say i am a fit person I exercise alot and I have strong abs and mainly wanted the tummy tuck for the muscle repairs.. mine were strong but a bit separated and you can only do soo much with working out.. my stomach is so flat now.. it’s unbelievable. And it supposed to get even better with time and exercise ..I can’t wait to have a six pack????????
I would like to thank Dr shortt and Joanne.. his amazing secretary assistant.. she was soo nice and warm..I am soo greatful for them both.. and i will defenitly consider coming back for any cosmetic procedures in the future .. it was defenitly worth the 17 hours journey from Dubai.!!

I am very grateful for the new me!!

This experience took awhile to absorb for a few reasons. Clearly a breast cancer diagnosis is a scary reality but I am happy to say with the beautiful reconstruction surgery I went through under the care of Dr. Shortt I am now starting to feel like a beautiful person on the inside and out! I very grateful for the new me!! Sincerely
M. Dohan

I ended up having a ‘mommy makeover’ and couldn’t be happier with my results

Dr Shortt and his staff provided excellent care. From my initial communication with the office and my multiple visits (while I decided exactly what I wanted done) everyone was through, communicative and helpful. I ended up having a ‘mommy makeover’ and couldn’t be happier with my results and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Shortt to anyone looking for a PS.

Weight Loss

I always had a small chest (34A at best) and had considered implants for years. Just over a year prior to getting my surgery, I had started a fitness journey to get me back to a place where I was comfortable in my own skin again. Something I didn’t anticipate was actually losing fat in my chest.
Becoming frustrated with not being able to fit into any of my shirts, even after all the hard work I had put in through fitness, I made the decision to get a small implant to at the very least get me back up to where I was before losing weight.
I chose an implant that was 170cc’s along with fat grafting to help hide the implant. I wanted to make sure it looked as natural as possible.
After the surgery, everything went pretty much as expected. I had a bit of excess swelling where the lipo was done on my thighs to collect the fat for the grafting. The brusing was worse than I had expected but definitely not out of the ordinary. Dr Shortt even met with me a few days after my surgery just to make sure.
It’s now been just over 2 months since my surgery and I couldn’t be happier. Things are still settling but I’m more pleased and would highly recommend Dr Shortt to anyone! His care and detail were exceptional!

Dr. Shortt is an outstanding surgeon

Dr. Shortt is an outstanding surgeon. I approached him regarding nipple reduction surgery, and frankly, I was a bit embarrassed when I began discussing it with him at the consultation. However, Dr. Shortt was very professional, took the time to answer all of my questions, and made me feel completely comfortable. By the time my consultation wrapped up, I was so impressed with Dr. Shortt that I went ahead and booked the surgery before I left the office… and I can honestly state that the outcome of my surgery was fantastic! My nipples are much smaller but look completely natural and there is no perceptible scar. By the way, I also had Dr. Shortt perform a facial laser rejuvenation procedure and I’m very happy with the results. Dr. Shortt is a perfectionist and I would not hesitate to recommend him and the Briarwood Surgical Centre in Oakville.

An emotional journey with an amazing outcome

These journeys that we are faced with are filled with emotions right from the beginning. It is so important to be surrounded by positive, good people to help you through. Unfortunately, I did not have that. Not until I went to Briarwood Cosmetic Surgical Centre. For me, the reconstruction part of my journey has been the most important. I truly feel like the luckiest person in the world. I have been blessed, not only with surviving cancer but with crossing paths with the most amazing person I have ever met. The kindness, care, time and dedication that I received from a total stranger. Dr. Shortt took the time to care about me and how I felt about myself. He not only fixed me with reconstruction, which I really thought would be impossible, he did so much more. He fixed ME…my self-confidence and inner strength like I’ve never felt before. I will forever be thankful, grateful and most of all honoured to say that I spent the most important part of my journey surrounded by the love and care of the wonderful people at Briarwood Cosmetic Surgical Centre, all of them; including Dr. Brown, the most wonderful Joanne and the most amazing Ann Marie. Everyone had such a huge positive impact on my life and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Dr. Shortt…I have no words…thank you so much

Dr.Shortt is amazing.

If you are looking for a kind, caring, compassionate and patient, surgeon, Dr. Rodger Shortt is your man. In March of 2015, I was diagnosed with stage three, invasive ductal carcinoma and, as a result, in April 2015, I underwent a full mastectomy. Upon learning that I carried the BRAC 1 mutation, I chose to have my left breast removed as a health precaution in November 2016. Because of the damage caused by the radiation treatments, I had to be realistic about the possibility of not being able to have reconstructive surgery. From the start, Dr. Shortt has been honest, patient, sensitive and beyond helpful with my questions and concerns throughout this process (3 surgeries)! I am beyond grateful for what this man has been able to accomplish, he has not only met, but exceeded my expectations. He worked magic and I will be forever thankful to him for what he has done for me.

Dr Shortt was informative, friendly and humourous.

Awesome experience, waited a long time before having reconstruction, but it was definitely worth it.

Dr Shortt was informative, friendly and humourous. He also is very particular about his work and takes it very seriously. I truly don’t think I could of had a more positive experience than what I had with Dr Shortt and his staff. Joanne, his scheduler/admin assistant is amazing also. Thanks again for being you.

His commitment to professionalism and perfection are traits you want in a plastic surgeon.

I had waited many years after my mastectomy to have breast reconstruction, and I am very happy that I decided to choose Dr Shortt over all the other consultations I had over the years. His commitment to professionalism and perfection are traits you want in a plastic surgeon.
His sense of humor is a bonus, that just makes the experience better.
Thank you Dr Short for your great work.
Oops…just about forgot to mention Joanne, his amazing personal administrator…she is truly caring and lovely also.

I would definitely recommend Dr Shortt and his team

I am really happy that I got it done. I can wear what I feel like and not be stressed out how I have to tuck in. Feels great now. Procedure was not long. Was home same day. First few days wete hard. needed the help from family but they say. NO PAIN NO GAIN. Overall not bad. I would definitely recommend Dr Shortt and his team. Thanks And good luck.

A year and a half later, my results are spectacular!

After having 2 c sections, it was clear that no matter how much diet and exercise I did, it was not going to reverse the damage of pregnancy.

I was planning to have a breast reduction anyway, so having a “mommy makeover “ seemed the best fit for me.

A year and a half later, my results are spectacular!

He achieved phenomenal results, I couldn’t be more please

After breastfeeding my babies, I was left with some pretty sad breasts. I didn’t want a huge difference – nothing very noticeable, just to be a bit more filled out and well balanced. The cosmetic surgery world is pretty foreign to me, I didn’t know where to start. After hours of research I decided to book a consultation with Dr. Shortt. The process was quite quick and I felt very comfortable. He achieved phenomenal results, I couldn’t be more pleased.

Dr. Shortt and his staff are absolutely amazing!

Dr. Shortt and his staff are absolutely amazing! I’m from Niagara and people ask me , why do you travel to Oakville to see you doctor, and my reply HE’S WORTH TO TRAVEL TO SEE THE BEST! I think , that says it all! Words can’t express how thankful I am to him and his staff! THANKS DR. SHORTT 🙂

Can’t recommend enough

Excellent Doctor and all around great person. It’s really hard to find a doctor who has such a superb skillset and the bedside manner to go along with it. I had an unsightly cyst removed from my face and Dr Shortt used one stitch. No word of a lie there is not even a scar and it’s been less than two months. I have seen a few plastic surgeons in the past and Dr Shortt is by and far a class in his own. If I do have any major procedures in the future I will definitely be going to him.

Beyond Thrilled with the Result

Dr. Shortt and staff were absolutely amazing. All were extremely professional, down-to-earth and very personable. The OR staff have a great sense of humour, and did an excellent job of incorporating humour to relax me/lighten the mood but at the same time always maintained a high degree of professionalism. Dr. Shortt provided all the facts and risks associated with the procedure and took time to answer all my questions. The procedure itself went well and I am extremely happy with the outcome. He is very knowledgeable and pays close attention to detail. It is clear he loves what he does and takes great pride in his work. I would highly recommend Dr. Shortt! There are many reasons why I chose Dr. Shortt but one I love is that he didn’t try to ‘up-sell’ me on liposuction or anything else. Despite exercising and eating clean, I don’t have the media’s idea of a ‘perfect body’ and I am also not interested in one. I wanted the tummy tuck not to look perfect but because the flap of skin/fat…

His ears have healed well and he looks great.

My 9 year old son had his ears pinned by Dr Shortt in August, 2017. He had a great experience from the time we met with Dr Shortt to post procedure. His ears have healed well and he looks great. Dr Shortt was very patient with him.

I felt comfortable and believed in him.

I was dx with breast cancer, shortly after giving birth to my daughter 2014. My family doctor without hesitation suggest Dr shortt to help my reconstruction. He was truly an amazing doctor. He answer all questions and was helpful. He thrives to do the best work. I felt comfortable and believed in him. Through my entire journey,he help me take back my femanity. Breast cancer did not take that away from me. Dr. Shortt and his staff are great. Joanne is amazing. Thank you for your skills, your knowledge and heart. I recommend Dr shortt. Thank you so much.

It has been the most remarkable transformation as I have a new found sense of self confidence.

Over the years my breasts kept getting larger and looked very matronly. Clothes didn’t fit properly and because I am only 5′ 2″ tall, I looked chubby all the time. I lost 12 pounds after Christmas and no one noticed. All anyone commented on was how large my breasts were. My neck hurt all the time and my self esteem was really hurting. My family physician recommended I have consultation with Dr. Short and it was the single best decision I have made in a very long time. Dr. Short is very kind and gentle, explains procedures and expected outcomes very thoroughly. I had the procedure done in July and was surprised at how little recovery time I needed. I had one wobbly week but was not taking any pain killers after a couple of days. It has been the most remarkable transformation as I have a new found sense of self confidence. I carry myself straighter and lighter. I feel years younger. I now have these cute perky boobs. Dr. Short is well versed in the latest surgical techniques. There is a remarkable difference in having this procedure done by him regarding internal stitches, no drains, etc. rather then the type of surgery done in years past. Even the nurses at the hospital where I had my procedure done choose him for their own procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Short for cosmetic procedures.

New me!

I had been concerned about my eye bags for some time and decided it was time for action. Dr Shortt is extremely knowledgeable, very professional in his conduct and has a great bedside manner. He listened to my concerns and then made suggestions about what he thought should be done. I decided to proceed and couldn’t be any happier with the end result.The after procedure care is equally as good and I was even given Dr Shortt’s personal cell number should I have any concerns and wanted to speak to him out of surgery hours.

My teenage daughter noticed how amazing my skin looks!!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Shortt and the staff at Briarwood Cosmetic. I had a laser rejuvenation treatment on my face and could not be happier with the results!! The treatment itself was short and painless! The recovery time was quick and the results were AMAZING!! Even my teenage daughter noticed how fresh looking my face was; coming from a teenager that means a lot!! More rescently, I was at an engagement party for a younger friend and they were taken back by my age. My skin looks better than theirs!! Thank you Dr. Shortt, I could not be more pleased by my results and recommend this treatment to anyone looking for a fresh revived look.

I myself am looking forward to my next procedure.

I was received at the outpatient clinic in a timely manner, and was escorted to my room almost immediately. The nurses were kind and thoughtful, and really helped me conquer my fear of what was about to happen. Knowing what to expect from a previous similar procedure. That was uncomfortable and left me feeling weak from the sensation of cutting into my body. Thankfully, and I do mean that thankfully, Dr Shortt was amazing. The staff were efficient and excelled at thier jobs. I didn’t feel a thing, after the small sting of the freezing needle and I am grateful. Dr Shortt conducted himself as a solid professional and with great temperament, and skill. I am happy with the results, and would highly recommend him. I myself am looking forward to my next procedure.

Previous Tummy Tuck Re-done – Oakville, ON

Dr. Shortt was no less than exceptional. His bedside manner wonderful. He makes you feel very comfortable. He never tries to upsell you on anything. He gives you the straight goods on what he can do for you. . He is very honest and straightforward. If he doesn’t think you will be happy with something you request (in my case I thought maybe an arm lift)-he tells you its not worth doing. All of his staff are excellent and very helpful. I am thrilled with my results and highly recommend Dr. Shortt. I give him 5 stars for all of the below!

Dr Shortt explained the treatment in detail so I knew exactly what to expect. He was also very helpful in answering any questions I had in the days following the treatment.

Kind and professional. Made the out patient experience, relaxing and dare I say fun!

Kind and professional. Made the out patient experience, relaxing and dare I say fun! Nurses at the clinic were understanding and, a treat to be around. Dr Shortts clerk was also very kind. Thank you Dr. Shortt and staff.

Dr Shortt takes pride in his work and it shows from his results.

When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in Feb 2014, I was referred to Dr. Shortt. Upon meeting Dr. Shortt I was very nervous meeting him not knowing what to expect but I found he was very understanding and caring and compassionate. He makes sure that you understand his explanations and will take the time to go over any details that you are not sure about. All of his staff especially Joanne was also very helpful and understanding and compassionate. We discussed my options on whether I wanted to have reconstruction surgery and what options that were available to me. He never rushed my decision and always assured me that when I was ready he would discuss my decision with me again. I later made my decision, and Dr. Shortt performed full reconstruction. Throughout all of my appointments, treatments and surgeries he was always very compassionate, caring and supportive. I also had my right wrist operated on for carpal tunnel and Dr. Shortt did an amazing job and my hand feels 10 times better than it did before the surgery. Dr Shortt takes pride in his work and it shows from his results. I can not thank you enough, Dr. Shortt you made me feel whole again. You are highly respected among your peers as you were highly recommended to me. D Davis

I would highly recommend Dr. Shortt.

I went to Dr. Shortt for the removal of an infected cyst. Dr. Shortt and his staff were so caring and supportive through all of my treatment. Thank you all so much! I would highly recommend Dr. Shortt.

A Perfectionist and an Artist! – Ontario, ON

For years I have been putting up with back and shoulder pain, and I finally decided that I had to have a breast reduction. The minute you walk in the door you know that you are in good hands. Everyone in the office is professional and courteous. Dr. Shortt was always on time, and took the time to ensure that I had all the information that I needed. Dr. Shortt has a top notch surgical team and therefore I had exceptional results. My breast are spectacular.

I am a new person. I feel lighter and the tension/pressure is gone from my back and shoulders. I regret that I didn’t do this earlier.

Dr. Shortts work is second to none. Aside from being an expert plastic surgeon, he is also kind and charing.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Shortt.

I can not thank you enough, Dr. Short, for making me look refreshed and feeling more vibrant.

I went to see Dr. Short for botox treatment and for the first time, face fillers. I had a wonderful experience. All the staff were very pleasant and made me feel comfortable. Once the procedures began, Dr. Short explained, with his easy style and wonderful sense of humour, all that was going to happen, making me feel extremely at ease. I am very pleased with my results. I can not thank you enough, Dr. Short, for making me look refreshed and feeling more vibrant. Highly recommended.

It has been the most remarkable transformation as I have a new found sense of self confidence.

Over the years my breasts kept getting larger and looked very matronly. Clothes didn’t fit properly and because I am only 5′ 2″ tall, I looked chubby all the time. I lost 12 pounds after Christmas and no one noticed. All anyone commented on was how large my breasts were. My neck hurt all the time and my self esteem was really hurting. My family physician recommended I have consultation with Dr. Short and it was the single best decision I have made in a very long time. Dr. Short is very kind and gentle, explains procedures and expected outcomes very thoroughly. I had the procedure done in July and was surprised at how little recovery time I needed. I had one wobbly week but was not taking any pain killers after a couple of days. It has been the most remarkable transformation as I have a new found sense of self confidence. I carry myself straighter and lighter. I feel years younger. I now have these cute perky boobs. Dr. Short is well versed in the latest surgical techniques. There is a remarkable difference in having this procedure done by him regarding internal stitches, no drains, etc. rather then the type of surgery done in years past. Even the nurses at the hospital where I had my procedure done choose him for their own procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Short for cosmetic procedures.

Keep up the good work Dr. Shortt you impact your patients lives in a profound way, I am most grateful.

In late January 2017, Dr. Shortt performed a Diep Flap reconstruction after a double mastectomy followed by fat grafting and nipple reconstruction this past July. Throughout this process which began with my first consultation almost two years ago, Dr. Shortt has been easy to talk to, informative and reassuring with any questions or concerns. The decision to undertake this surgery did not come easy, but from my first appointment with Dr. Shortt I was immediately assured that I had found the right surgeon for me and felt completely comfortable with my decision. Certainly having reviewed former patients testimonials of their experience’s with Dr. Shortt also gave me confidence as does his extensive education and experience. He approaches his craft with a desire to achieve the best result possible, understanding that every patient and situation is different, I can only speak to my result, and that result is far more than I hoped for. His skill, knowledge and attention to detail is…

My experience with Dr. Shortt and his staff was nothing but amazing!

I went to Dr. Shortt from a brachioplasty and thigh lift following significant weight loss. From the initial consultation, the morning of the surgery and through out the entire recovery period, Dr. Shortt took the time to explain all possible options and procedures to you, made you feel extremely comfortable and did everything possible to ensure you received the best care possible. I am extremely pleased with the results of my surgery and felt like a brand new person afterwards. I drove from 3 hours out of town to have Dr. Shortt as my surgeon for all consults, surgery and follow ups and will do it again when I am ready for my next procedure. My experience with Dr. Shortt and his staff was nothing but amazing!

I can’t wait to wear a bikini this summer!

Beyond my expectations. I did a consultation with a very well known doctor in Toronto and then saw Dr. Shortt. My consultation with Dr. Shortt was so different and made me feel so confident in my decision to proceed with him and his team for my procedures. They were able to give me a cancellation appointment so I got to have my surgery SO quickly. He is personable, funny, genuine and an absolute artist at his craft. I am in awe of my results. My confidence and how I feel is off the charts. My recovery was amazing. The drain free technique he used made it smoother and faster. I was working within a week. 8 weeks later and I am 100% my old self. My bellybutton looks SO natural and cute (a big deal for my procedure). I can’t wait to wear a bikini this summer! His staff are friendly, responsive, and I felt comforatable with every aspect of the process. His pricing is extremely competitive. You may have to wait for a consult but he personally does the consults and seeing how much time he takes it makes sense to me. Thank you so much Dr. Shortt and your team!!!

Would recommend him to anyone considering any type of self-improvement surgery.

Dr. Shortt was knowledgeable & patient answering my questions. We are absolutely thrilled with the end result and would recommend him to anyone considering any type of self-improvement surgery.

My results are fantastic and have exceeded my wildest expectations.

Dr. Shortt did my breast implant removal. He was extremely professional, going out of his way to make sure all my questions are answered. My results are fantastic and have exceeded my wildest expectations.

Far greater results than what I had expected and could have imagined.

I wish I knew how to express in words how amazing I feel after the great results I had with the Abdominoplasty and Gynecomastia performed by Dr. Shortt on June 8th 2017. From the moment I found his profile on Real Self, I knew that he was the perfect surgeon for me. So last October I made the conscious decision to arrange my first consultation with him and I was pleased to find out that my gut instinct was right. At my first appointment Dr Shortt listened carefully and respectfully and when I was done explaining my needs he gave me his professional opinion on what he truly believed I needed. Unlike other doctors, he did not try to sell me many other costly surgeries nor try to convince me to spend unnecessary thousands of dollars. By not trying to over prescribe unnecessary and costly treatments, Dr Shortt showed integrity and earned my trust and respect. After hearing Dr Shortt’s professional opinion, I knew that my journey for the perfect surgeon was over. What I learned through my entire journey and experience with Dr. Shortt is that he is a caring human being, a real artist, and a truly professional surgeon. Dr Shortt displays kindness and concern for his patients. As I worked with him, I could sense his pride and commitment to his profession and his patients. From the beginning to the end, Dr Shortt was there for me. He answered all my questions and gave me his opinion on everything. Even on the day of the surgery he took the time to look a bit more and told me that he would fix something that I had not noticed before due to the excess of skin which was covering the spot that he had mentioned. I am glad that he did because the results are far greater than what I had expected and could have imagined. I feel like a walking master piece. This is true and I sincerely mean it! I love the way my belly looks even though it is still a bit swollen in some areas. My belly button is looking perfect and my chest is definitely looking more firm than before. I had worked out hard all my life, ate well, and took care of my body to keep the weight down, but I could never look as good and feel as awesome as I do right now. I am so glad that I choose to go with Dr Shortt’s expertise, care, and dedication to help me transform into who I truly am. Dr Shortt delivered a perfect surgery, a great look, a most importantly a great amount of inner peace. Throughout the process I felt I was kept very well informed by Dr. Shortt and was given all the necessary information for me to undergo surgery. I followed all the guidelines and listened carefully to his opinion. I am happy that I did because I think every bit helped to deliver Dr. Shortt’s talented master piece on my body. In addition to this I should mention that his professional staff and front desk are a great team and you always feel welcome at his office. Finally I should say that anyone out there looking for a good doctor must not look further. Dr. Shortt will deliver whatever your needs might be. I would totally recommend anyone contemplating this type of surgery arrange a consultation with him and find out for yourself. My experience has been incredible, the results speak for themselves and I am happy that I did take the time and do my research to find the perfect doctor for myself. I am sure you will be in great hands.

So happy with the results!

I recently had blepharoplasty surgery to removes excess sagging skin around my upper eyelids with Dr Shortt, and I am so pleased. The results are fantastic!! My upper lids are smooth, and I have a more youthful appearance. Dr Shortt is an artist who loves his profession. He is very detailed, patient, and will give you his honest opinion for the best results. I had consulted a few other plastic surgeons prior to meeting Dr Shortt and felt the most comfortable with Dr Shortt. His office staff, and nurses are very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Joanne is such a sweetheart! I experienced a little swelling and bruising which is normal with this type of surgery. There was no pain and scars have healed beautifully. If you are considering Dr Shortt do not hesitate for a second, you will be pleased!

I went to Dr. Shortt for breast reconstruction and he was very helpful and very respectful.

I went to Dr. Shortt for breast reconstruction and he was very helpful and very respectful. His manners and the surgery has way exceeded my expectations. He was very knowledgable and gave me many options (as well as took the time to explain each option in detail) and left me to decide which option was best for my situation and comfort. I am beyond pleased with my whole experience with Dr. Shortt and I wouldn’t recommend anyone but him to anyone who wants/needs a breast reconstructive surgery.

I would recommend Dr. Shortt to anyone who (like me) was hesitant to see a cosmetic surgeon.

I have been seeing Dr. Shortt for Botox treatments for the past few years and every time I walk away wondering how I can help him as much as he helps me so thought I’d take to RateMDs! Dr. Shortt is so caring and is appreciative of my wanting to reduce the lines and time that age has brought while balancing not wanting to look ‘too fake’! He always works with me to achieve the desired outcome and is patient in his approach. Dr. Shortt presents with with all my options and is never sales like or pushy with the options available. He works with his patients based on their individual needs. To top it all off – the staff and colleagues at his office demonstrate the same caring, confidentiality and patience as Dr. Shortt. Things always run smoothly and on time – an experience I do not find at most medical offices today. I would recommend Dr. Shortt to anyone who (like me) was hesitant to see a cosmetic surgeon.

38 Years Old, Needed the Right Doctor for Lipo

Dr. Shortt has amazing bedside manner, a great sense of humor and is extremely knowledgeable. My husband was previously against the procedure for me and for himself, but after meeting Dr. Shortt, he had lipo as well!! We both look and feel great. It has given us the the look and confidence that we were praying for. This experience has far exceeded all of our expectations. We just love Dr.Shortt and his entire team. They are simply the best.

I haven’t looked this great and felt this confident in years!

Dr. Shortt performed liposuction on my abs and flanks. He has an amazing bedside manner and made sure I understood my options and had realistic expectations. I was very comfortable with my decision and the results have far exceeded my expectations. I haven’t looked this great and felt this confident in years! His entire staff has always been pleasant and helpful. I had several consultations in the U.S and Canada but as soon as I met with Dr. Shortt I knew I’d found the right doctor.

My results have been amazing, a natural look was achieved.

The reason for my eyelid surgery was due to my right eyelid drooping. I was very apprehensive about the surgery itself, in terms of what the results will look like and a greater concern was discolouration, due to my brown skin tone. I choose Dr. Shortt due to his extensive experience, education in plastics and professional mannerism. I had encountered Dr. Shortt at Oakville Trafalgar Hospital and the first thing I noticed about him was his disposition, he spoke very calmly and was very attentive. In all my consultations leading up to the surgery Dr. Shortt was very collaborative in discussing the results I wanted and how they would be achieved. He always answered all my questions and concerns and I never felt rushed in my appointments. I had the eyelid surgery and fractional laser under my eyes for the dark circles. My results have been amazing, a natural look was achieved and the dark circles lightened up by about 30%, which means less concealer. Thank you Dr. Shortt, Joanne and the team.

The care I have received along the way has been nothing short of exceptional.

I was diagnose with breast cancer stage 1 in my left breast and had a full mastectomy in 2015. The care I have received along the way has been nothing short of exceptional. I have recently completed reconstructive breast surgery, under the care of Dr. Shortt. When I met him he gave me a number of options and stated what he felt would work best for me. I went away with a lot of information and began online researching pros and cons of each procedures. Dr. Shortt’s confidence made me feel at ease with my decision that was not easy to make. I had decided that Fat Graphing was the best option for me, Dr. Shortt started the process in Aug 2016 and after 4 transfers (waiting 3 months between each procedure) I am now at the final lap. (June 2017). Fat Graphing is taking fat through liposuction from various body area and transferring my own body fat to create a new breast mound. Dr Shortt is very knowledgeable and having such a positive experience with him, I have recommended him to others that are in need of the same services. i am left with very little scarring and an added bonus Dr. Shortt “tweeked” my right breast as well. Now I have one last step and that is to have a 3D nipple tattoo,..can’t wait to see the final results. I am very pleased with our outcome, Dr. Shortt… I can not thank you enough, God bless! J from G’Town

Dr. Shortt’s excellent care and surgical expertise produced great outcomes which exceeded my expectations

My experience with Dr. Shortt was excellent throughout my pre surgical appointments for mastectomy, during the surgery and post surgery during my recovery and subsequent reconstructive surgery. Dr. Shortt was professional and personable at all times, very direct, thorough and clear in his communication, always taking the time to answer my many questions. Dr. Shortt’s manner is caring and professional, and he was able to put me at ease with the procedures, and with my outcomes. Dr. Shortt’s excellent care and surgical expertise produced great outcomes which exceeded my expectations! Dr. Shortt’s staff is also excellent, attentive and caring, ensuring good communication throughout my procedures and numerous appointments.

From the original consultation to pre-surgery, surgery and post surgery, my care was excellent.

I had a brachioplasty (arm) procedure . Due to a significant weight loss i had excessive upper arm skin, which was removed in this procedure. From the original consultation to pre-surgery, surgery and post surgery, my care was excellent. My interaction with Dr. Shortt and his staff was consistently thoughtful and through and made me confident. No detail was missed. Recovery has been exceptional. i believe my good experience is due to the professionalism of the people involved in my care, Dr. Shortt, Joanne (office Admin) and Kristin (nurse). Further, the success of my surgery and recovery would not be possible without the exceptional professionalism and skills of Dr. Shortt. I am so pleased with the outcome of my surgery and with no regret or hesitation, what so ever, i would highly recommend Dr Shortt. Many thanks to Joanne and Kristin for their support along the way! Your professionalism and warm kindness was very much appreciated. Other staff in the clinic certainly add to my positive experience.

Dr Shortt takes the time to explain everything

Dr Shortt takes the time to explain everything to you to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Very professional.

I couldn’t have chosen a better surgeon for breast augmentation and lift.

Absolutely beautiful results! I couldn’t have chosen a better surgeon for breast augmentation and lift. He made me cry I was so happy!

Dr. Rodger Shortt did exactly what he said he would do to remove the tissue which was left after I lost sixty four pounds fifteen years ago.

I just have to say that Dr. Rodger Shortt did exactly what he said he would do to remove the tissue which was left after I lost sixty four pounds fifteen years ago. The skin under the overhang if tissue was always very red and burned and did not heal no matter what cream I put on it. I am so pleased with the results of my surgery and the after care is very good and the Dr is very attentive. I am a former surgical nursed and would recommend his and his clinic to any one whom asked me. Total satisfaction.

Dr. Shortt’s presentation at the BRA event, his dedication to perfecting breast reconstruction surgical techniques and his ability to relate to people is extraordinary.

I heard Dr. Shortt speak at the BRA (Breast Reconstruction Awareness) event in September 2014. I opted for a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, March 2014. What a journey! After meeting with other plastic surgeons to learn about their breast reconstruction methods, I opted to go with Dr. Shortt’s bilateral breast DIEP reconstruction which used my own tissue (fat) – April 2016. The results were good; I was happy to have breasts again but there was more he felt could be done to make them even more natural. In April 2017, he removed the flap and created nipples. Instead of having cat-eye scars on each breast, there is only one now. Indeed, an incredible improvement. Dr. Shortt takes incredible pride in his work and valued having a relationship with me. Having cancer was enough of an experience; I waffled between anger and gratitude – anger because cancer mutilated my body and gratitude because my breasts could be removed and I was living to tell the…

My face is free of sun damage and spots… I feel (and look) 10 years younger!

From the moment I spoke with Dr. Shortt, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing Briarwood Cosmetic. For some time now, I have wanted to refresh my appearance but was unsure of what to do, what was possible or even where to begin! I was feeling quite nervous and anxious, but with his calm demeanour, Dr. Shortt quickly made me feel at ease and walked me through my options. In the end, we agreed that a non surgical laser treatment would help achieve my goal. I could not be more pleased with the results!!! My face is free of sun damage and spots… I feel (and look) 10 years younger!!! Thank you Dr. Shortt

We should all be so lucky to have an incredible plastic surgeon such as Dr Shortt.

We should all be so lucky to have an incredible plastic surgeon such as Dr Shortt. The moment you consult with him, you feel at ease. His sense of humour, patience, knowledge and honesty is truly within a league of its own. I had a Belkyra treatment performed by Dr Shortt – this was to minimize the appearance of the excess fat in my chin (something that has always bothered me). With a minimally invasive procedure the results were far beyond my expectations, I no longer feel the need to cover the lower part of my face – such a confidence boost! I am finally photogenic! My only regret is that I did not connect with Dr Shortt sooner. I highly recommend this phenomenal surgeon! The Briarwood team is very experienced and understanding, such a comfortable environment. Thank you, I can’t wait to come back!

No scars and healing was fast.

I had Septoplasty surgery and it was done very well; no scars and healing was fast. I can breath properly and smell very well now. Thank you Dr. Shortt

Every time I look in the mirror, I feel like I’ve been brought back in time 20 years.

Dr. Shortt was professional and was able to put my mind at ease for my procedure through his likable demeanor. He explained all the aspects and risks in a way that I could understand easily. His staff was also extremely helpful and friendly. After the operation, he was always available for any questions or concerns I may have had. He truly is a talented doctor. Every time I look in the mirror, I feel like I’ve been brought back in time 20 years, all thanks to Dr. Shortt 🙂

I will recommend him to anyone who think having any plastic procedure.

Very pleased with Dr.Shortt. I had ablation to my face on Nov.10 and I am very pleased with the results. He is very professional, kind, you really feel at ease and make you trust him. I will recommend him to anyone who think having any plastic procedure. My husband made an appointment with him for liposuction in April 2017. THANK YOU DR. SHORTT

Really took his time guiding me through my process of having a tummy tuck and fat transfer to breasts.

Such an amazing Dr.!!! listens to what you’re looking to achieve and explains everything in detail. Really took his time guiding me through my process of having a tummy tuck and fat transfer to breasts. I’d go back for any future treatments in a heartbeat. Thank you Dr. Shortt and your wonderful staff

I couldn’t be happier and Dr. Shortt did a great job.

I saw Dr. Shortt in regards to a rhinoplasty and deviated septum. I had met with Dr. Shortt for a number of consultations and each time he was sure to hear all my concerns and hopes for the surgery and made sure I felt comfortable with the surgery. I am so pleased with the results and how well everything healed! I couldn’t be happier and Dr. Shortt did a great job.

I recommended Dr Shortt to all my friends.

Excellent doctor, friendly staff. He removed a BCC off my nose that healed amazingly . Another issue was removing a keratosis that left no scarring . I recommended Dr Shortt to all my friends.

The result of the procedure was fantastic.

I recently had a facial seborrhoeic keratosis (age spot) removed by Dr. Shortt. For both the consultation and the procedure itself, the staff was friendly and the doctor was punctual, taking the time to explain everything to me. Most importantly, the result of the procedure was fantastic. Even though the spot was near my hairline, the healing process went well, I could wash my hair, and there is no scarring. I would definitely recommend Dr. Shortt.

Dr. Shortt and his staff are very professional, reassuring, warm and kind.

Dr. Shortt performed a full face laser skin rejuvenation procedure on me back in July. I am writing to say how extremely pleased I am with the outcome. He has taken 15 years off my appearance. When having a procedure done on your face, it can be very frightening. However, Dr. Shortt and his staff are very professional, reassuring, warm and kind. I will recommend him to all my girlfriends!! Thank you Dr. Shortt.

Dr Shortt was professional, knowledgeable, kind and very patient.

After months of researching and meeting with different plastic surgeons in both Toronto and Oakville, I finally found the right match for me Dr Shortt!! My consultation with Dr Shortt was in regards to a droopy eye lid. Dr Shortt was professional, knowledgeable, kind and very patient. He took a lot of time explaining all my options and made me feel very reassured with my decision. I am already looking forward to my next apt with him. So glad I found his practice, and will refer all my friends to him in the future.

Thanks to Dr. Shortt that my thumb & fingers were saved.

I was rushed to hospital for pretty well a amputated thumb & finger damage from a table saw injury. Dr short & his team managed to reattach my thumb & repair all nerve damage surgically. It’s been 5 months now & thanks to all involed have the use of my left hand. Just fantastic to see what was done to repair hand & would like to express my gratitude. In closing, exceptional in all fields from start to finish. Thanks to Dr. Shortt that my thumb & fingers were saved. As in all cases credit must also be shared, shared with his whole team that were involved. Thanks & would recommend Dr Shortt to anyone in the future.

I am grateful for Dr Shortt’s skill as a surgeon and his aesthetic perfectionism.

THANK YOU! After being diagnosed with early stage breast cancer at age 50 during a routine mammogram, I chose to have a mastectomy and simultaneous breast reconstruction with Dr. Shortt. From the beginning, I was grateful for the professional, diligent and cooperative nature of his staff as well as Dr. Shortt working with the general surgeon to expedite the initial surgery and ensure the best possible outcome. Having now attended my final post-operative check up, I am filled with an enormous sense of gratitude. Since our first consultation in 2015, Dr. Shortt has conducted 3 surgeries to reconstruct my left breast, augment the right to ensure a reasonable match, and reconstruct the left nipple. Over 19 months, 4 surgeries and multiple pre- and post-op appointments, I have only positive feedback on Dr. Shortt and his staff. He and his team are professional, methodical, efficient, warm, calm, and approachable. As a bonus, the good doctor’s sense of humour and levity made my…

I feel I appear more rested, lighter and more youthful.

I saw Dr Shortt for Botox and Juvaderm injections a few weeks a go. The entire experience was enjoyable including the end result. I found the staff friendly and approachable. Dr Shortt answered my questions and put me at ease. It was wonderful to have a doctor with such a great sense of humour. I was concerned my appearance would look unnatural but I am so pleased. I feel I appear more rested, lighter and more youthful. I would recommend Dr Shortt to all my friends and family. Thank you Dr Shortt!

I would recommend Dr. Shortt to any of my friends or relatives without hesitation.

Dr. Shortt performed a breast reduction on me in July. I have to say that I was very impressed with the whole process. Dr. Shortt and his entire staff were very knowledgeable and helpful through the whole process. The surgery went very well with exceptional results. I would recommend Dr. Shortt to any of my friends or relatives without hesitation. He made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions, as well as his staff. The after care was also great.

Thanks Dr. Shortt for the great outcome and care that you provided.

Dr. Shortt is a great physician. As a physician, I can attest to his great communication and surgical skills. I brought my mother to him to remove a skin lesion on her face. Dr. Shortt explained the surgery, thoroughly answered her questions and was great with her. My mother felt very comfortable with his care. Now two weeks after the surgery, there is no evidence of the lesion and she is very happy with the cosmetic result. Thanks Dr. Shortt for the great outcome and care that you provided.

He asked me what was important to me and then delivered exactly what I had wanted.

Dr. Shortt, did by breast reduction surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I met with several surgeons before deciding on Dr. Shortt. I felt that he was the most approachable and respectful. He asked me what was important to me (shape, size etc) and then delivered exactly what I had wanted. My post-surgery recuperation was extremely fast. If I had any suggestion for improvement, it would be to have a better understanding of what to expect on the day of surgery. In hindsight, I should have asked more questions as it would have helped me feel more prepared, but in my case everything went extremely smoothly and there really was nothing to do.

Dr Shortt is an amazing doctor.

Dr Shortt is an amazing doctor, he was very pleasant and explained everything that needed to be done to replace my 22 year old breast implants. He was also very patient with me as I was quite apprehensive about the procedure. I felt very reassured right up until he put the music on in the operating room. It has been four weeks since the procedure and I feel great. He made them look even more real than the ones he removed. The size was perfect as he checked a few sizes to make sure that they looked natural. Thank you Dr. Shortt you are a very caring and talented doctor.

He exceeded my expectations. I am so happy with the results and highly recommend Dr. Shortt.

Dr Shortt removed a mole from my face and cholesterol deposits from my eyelids. He explained in detail the procedure beforehand. He was very professional and knowledgable. I was worried about the work being so close to my eyes but it was not a problem. I arrived at the office and was seen on time – or maybe even a few minutes before. Dr. Shortt was very friendly and he and his whole team made me very comfortable and were constantly checking in with me throughout the procedure. They asked me several times if I was feeling any pain and in fact did not at any time. It one time I started to feel a bit chilly, so they brought me a blanket! He exceeded my expectations. I am so happy with the results and highly recommend Dr. Shortt.

Dr. Shortt impressed me with his expertise, professionalism, kindness, generosity, attention to detail, and humour.

Dr. Shortt performed a tummy tuck on me after I had lost a significant amount of weight. Throughout the entire process of evaluation through to follow-ups, Dr. Shortt impressed me with his expertise, professionalism, kindness, generosity, attention to detail, and humour. He made me feel very comfortable, even though I am rather shy about my body. He is a wonderful doctor, does does fantastic work, and is lovely person in general. I had my last appointment with him this morning, and I will miss him. His support staff are also very kind and helpful, and there have even been occasions where I was early and able to see him before my scheduled appointment. I recommend him to anyone and everyone.

All of my expectations were exceeded.

Dr. Shortt removed a keratosis from my face. The procedure was painless, it healed with no issues and I was even going to cancel my follow up appointment because I could barely see where it had been removed. All of my expectations were exceeded, and his timeliness, professionalism and sense of humour were just the icing on the cake. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Shortt. His staff also met all expectations and were very helpful.

I will definitely recommend Dr. Shortt to family and friends.

Dr. Shortt removed an ugly mole from my face that had started to grow larger over the last year. His sense of humour made me feel instantly at ease. He took the time to explain my options and exactly what to expect during the procedure. There was hardly any discomfort during the procedure, and none afterwards. When he removed the bandage one week later I was VERY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED that there was no scab and no redness. I will definitely recommend Dr. Shortt to family and friends.

Dr Shortt is amazing in all aspects of care

This summer I had a tummy tuck and thigh lift at Briarwood. I am more than thrilled! Dr Shortt is amazing in all aspects of care; his attention to detail, his compassion, his bedside manner and his marvelous sense of humour. I did my homework beforehand and knew he was top-rated, but he exceeded in all areas. Staff at the clinic are friendly, professional and helpful. Many thanks!!!!!

My experience with Dr. Shortt was amazing

My experience with Dr. Shortt was amazing . I had a breast reduction. He is an great plastic surgeon that is and perfectionist. I am very pleased. Thank you, Dr Shortt

If you want a reliable and professional Doctor than he is the one to go to.

My experience with Doctor shortt was no less than amazing. From consultation to post op he was professional and friendly in every manner. His staff dealt with every question I asked in a timely and professional manner and I am more than satisfied with my experience. In the future I will always go to him even though he is hours away, because of the great experience. I have already and will continue to refer friends and family to him. If you want a reliable and professional Doctor than he is the one to go to.

I could not be happier with the aftercare and outcome.

I have met Dr Shortt while looking for a surgeon who specialises in breast surgeries. Right from the start he made me feel at ease – he took the time to understand my case, explained my options, the procedure, what to expect, after care, etc. I am a member of the Realself and came in with my ‘homework’ done: a very large number of questions, which he patiently answered. Throughout all this he was very professional and knowledgeable, friendly and personable at the same time. Not for a second did I feel rushed or that my questions or concerns were dismissed – very different from my previous experience with other (highly rated) surgeons. Shortly after meeting with him I decided he was the surgeon I felt met all my requirements and we scheduled the surgery for the fall. During follow up discussions with Dr Shortt and while waiting for my surgery day, I learned he also specialises in ‘lumps and bumps’ – I had a growth on the side of my nose that was removed 3 times previously and kept…

I had no doubts that I was in very capable hands.

Omg, totally had the most amazing surgeon patient experience. Totally rocked and looked like something out of my fave medical show Grey’s anatomy without all the sensual stuff of course. Anyways had a Pyogenic Flexor Tenosynovitis (Doc, i hope I was listening right) and went to emerg at CVH. Well they had to call in the big guns and Dr Shortt came within the hour and we set to work. He made the whole operation go so easy, he was friendly, chatted with me during the op, which kept me relaxed. Guess what I even had music- Jazz (Glory, Hallelujah) with Boze speakers (we later joked that the patients in adjoining rooms would be going, why does she get music and we don’t?). He was very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, explained the procedure to me, had a great sense of humor and did a wonderful cleanup job. I had no doubts that I was in very capable hands. Having a follow up with him soon and I’m confident that this will be no different. So here you have it, Dr Shortt, i think you…

He is an amazing plastic surgeon.

I had a breast reduction and lift in January of this year I am now 6 months post op and I am absolutely in love with dr shortts work!! He is an amazing plastic surgeon that is a huge perfectionist with an a type personality which is perfect if you want an amazing outcome!! His bedside manner is spot on and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best plastic surgeon!! I will only see him from now on for any of my plastic surgical needs!!

An amazing doctor, professional and knowledgeable.

An amazing doctor, professional and knowledgeable. He performed a facial surgery (damaged skin due to excessive sun exposure). Awesome result! The staff is great! Thank you Dr. Shortt

Thank you Dr. Shortt for letting me feel like a woman again.

I just finished my final post op check up and must share my experience. Dr. Shortt reconstructed my breast, removed due to a radical mastectomy. When I first lost my breast I was brave and accepting and didn’t realize the effect it had on me until Dr. Shortt gave me a new one. He is methodical and detailed and certainly inspired confidence. He has a calm, confident bedside manner and is extremely approachable. I would and have extolled his praises and will continue to do so. Thank you Dr. Shortt for letting me feel like a woman again and thanks to your wonderful staff.

Awesome doctor! My scar isn’t even noticeable.

Awesome doctor! He performed a minor surgery on my forehead that could have left a noticeable scar. He advised me of post operative care that I could do at home and now my scar isn’t even noticeable. Love, love, love the care this guy and his staff give! Highly recommend him.

Dr. Shortt did double breast reconstruction for me, and the results are outstanding!

Master Piece of Art!!!! Recently Dr. Shortt did double breast reconstruction for me, and the results are outstanding !!! He has a great bed side manner and full of knowledge and talent. As well, his office staff are amazing! He’s definitely the Man!!

I would highly recommend Dr. Shortt for any types of Cosmetic or Reconstruction surgery.

I recently had some noninvasive cosmetic work by Dr. Shortt and I am extremely satisfied and pleased with the results. He listened to my concerns closely and then offered his opinion. The results are natural looking and I look refreshed. The office is very nice giving off a sense of tranquility. I would highly recommend Dr. Shortt for any types of Cosmetic or Reconstruction surgery that one may need or want. Very professional knowledgable with a great sense of humour which I liked as it put me at ease. I rate him 5 stars.

Dr. Shortt is definitely my “go to” first choice surgeon in the future.

I had a consultation with Dr. Shortt regarding excision of a lipoma that was slow growing for over 10 years. This lipoma was on the back of my head just above my neck. This lipoma bothered me not in a cosmetic fashion because it was under my hair. It just hurt, it throbbed, it would swell and it would get warm. I had many, many referrals sent out over the years to different surgeons and plastic surgeons. Always rejected! Not Dr. Shortt. He took the time, explained everything to me and my husband and he removed it in the office. Lots of freezing, the excision took about an hour. He was very gentle. He is a very nice young man, speaks in a very gentle manner and doesn’t make you self conscious in any way. The procedure was a success. I had three follow up visits. Dr. Shortt is definitely my “go to” first choice surgeon in the future. Thank you again Dr. Shortt!!

Dr. Shortt is a wonderful surgeon!

Dr. Shortt is a wonderful surgeon! He removed a small growth from my forehead that I felt was unsightly. This was a strictly cosmetic procedure. You can’t even see the scar! I’m thrilled! He’s got a wonderful personality, tells you what you can expect and how to manage post-operatively. I highly recommend Dr. Shortt.

He changed my life, and today I am so confident and happy with the results.

Dr Shortt is a very skilled and talented surgeon! I was born with very asymmetrical breasts, one was about an A cup and the other a DD cup. This has affected my self confidence for as long as I can remember, but I was lucky to find Dr. Shortt. He was helpful, informative and gave me the best options that would benefit me. He performed the surgery, and right away I felt great. My breasts healed quickly and beautifully, and I entirely attribute this to Dr. Shortt’s hard and dedicated work. He changed my life, and today I am so confident and happy with the results, he is an amazing surgeon, and I would recommend him to any individual. His work is precise and has left me with beautiful results

Changed my life for the better.

Dr Shortt is a great guy and a great Surgeon. He performed a surgery on me that was covered by OHIP…. A lot of Dr’s would not do it because they don’t get paid a lot for it. He did it for me, and has changed my life for the better (more then he will know!). He is a person of integrity and he is a very gifted surgeon…my scar was done with great care and is healing very well…thanks Dr. Shortt!

Dr Shortt did an incredible job with repairing all damage done in my hand.

I had extreme damage in my right arm – my tendons were completely cut and I was unable to use my arm at all. After thinking I would never be able to work in my passion again, Dr Shortt did an incredible job with repairing all damage done in my hand. I have him to thank for being able to do what I love everyday, baking and running my business. I am extremely grateful to his kind service and the wonderful outcome he provided for me. I absolutely recommend Dr Shortt to everyone!

He really does care about his work and his patients.

I had plastic surgery 6 months ago to remove basal cell cancer on my forehead, just above my eyebrow. The skin isn’t doesn’t stretch too much in that area, but Dr. Shortt did a great job. He saved most of my eyebrow and you can hardly see my scar. He really does care about his work and his patients. I would highly recommend him. Thank you

Just 6 months later, you can hardly see the scar.

I had surgery to remove basal cell cancer in and just above my eyebrow. Dr. Shortt had not much to work with because being that part of your forehead,, the skin isn’t very stretchy. He did wonders. I have most of my eyebrow and even just 6 months later, you can hardly see the scar. He did an amazing job. He made you feel at ease and answered all your questions. You really felt that he cared about you and how you would look. Thank you!

An amazing doctor.

An amazing doctor, professional and knowledgeable. Thank you!

My quality of life is much improved… Thanks!!!

Had Ulnar nerve surgery 4 months ago with Dr Shortt, he undersold and over delivered. Everything went extremely well, he and his staff are really great, and my quality of life is much improved… Thanks!!!

Decided to travel out of town to meet the BEST. Very good choice.

Wow this man is amazing. Stong reviews, after seeing local docs, decided to travel out of town to meet the BEST. Very good choice. This Doctor cares and listens and educates his patients about their options. I had breast cancer, lumpectomy forcing right nipple to about under my armpit. Dr. Shortt is professional, caring, qualified excellent at his work, a perfectionist and a true artist. My surgery results where amazing. His staff is awesome and caring and very helpful. I can not thank his team enough. Divorce, breast cancer, chemo, radiation really took a toll on my self esteem. Thank you so much for helping me end that chapter of my life on a positive note. Truely feel like a woman again.

Thanks to Dr. Shortt and his superb, precise work, I feel and look good again.

There is God then there is Dr. Shortt. He boosted my self confidence and made me feel feminine again. After having a radical bilateral mastectomy in November 2012, and many reconstructive surgeries and procedures. My surgical oncologist, suggested I see Dr. Shortt, well I cannot thank him enough. From speaking with Joanne and her kind helpful, demeanor, I new I had been sent to the right place. Dr. Shortt was always prompt, professional and put me to ease about the surgeries he would perform. Having Breast cancer at the young age of 44 and a newly single lady with a Beautiful daughter. I wanted to not only be healthy to be here for her, but I needed to feel good again about myself. Thanks to Dr. Shortt and his superb, precise work, I feel and look good again. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. DSP

Amazing job with the surgery and my breathing has substantially improved.

After having a terrible experience with the first attempt to fix my deviated septum, I was incredibly afraid and nervous to try again. Not being able to breathe well brought me in to see Dr. Shortt. He was incredibly understanding and went out of his way to explain each part of the process to me. After deciding to go ahead with a septoplasty with Dr. Shortt, he made sure I felt comfortable about everything that was going to happen. He did an amazing job with the surgery and my breathing has substantially improved…not to mention I have an almost invisible scar from the procedure. He did a great job, and his after care was fantastic as well. Joanna, Dr. Shortt’s assistant, is amazing and always available to help answer any questions or concerns you may have. I would not only consider having another procedure with Dr.Shortt, but would recommend him to all family and friends.

I wanted a very natural result and that’s exactly what I got.

Dr. Shortt is always professional and courteous. I wanted a very natural result and that’s exactly what I got. I couldn’t be more happy with my results. I have received both Botox and Juvederm to soften lines and re-gain natural volume in my lips. No one believes my age when I tell them, in fact many think I’m at least 10 years younger than I am. That is thanks to Dr. Shortt!

I have never seen such perfectly done work.

I had two “problems” removed from my legs. Both required stitches and I have NEVER seen such perfectly done work. It’s only been 6 weeks since my surgery and I can’t even see the scars. I now tell everyone about Dr.Shortt!!

He gave me great results and made it look natural.

I found Dr. Shortt up front, courteous and professional. Although I have earned my wrinkles, I wanted them softened and not completely taken away leaving me with no expression. Dr. Shortt did not conform to the pressures of overuse in Botox as many do. He gave me great results that allows me to still have expression and softer lines to make it look natural.

I am in good hands.

Professional, reassuring, felt comfortable receiving treatment, developed trust to know that I am in good hands, will go back to see again.

I would not hesitate if I needed his services again.

Skillful surgeon, did a great job doing both my carpal tunnel problems. He is a very good at his job and has a great personality as well. He takes his time explaining before and after. I would not hesitate if I needed his services again.

Thank you Dr. Shortt and staff!

Thanks to Dr. Shortt, so long carpal tunnel syndrome! I’m an artist and the pain in my hands prevented me from being able to draw for prolonged periods. I can’t believe how much better they are now. Excellent service from all involved; great bedside manner and not what I consider long waits –PLUS, I was able to have my right hand done six months sooner due to a cancellation. Thank you Dr. Shortt and staff!

Dr. Shortt is a very professional and kind doctor.

Dr. Shortt is a very professional and kind doctor. He understood everything about my situation and seemed very eager and happy to help me. Aside from his excellent expertise, Dr. Shortt is also a great person with an awesome personality. Can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Shortt and the staff working there. Thank you so much for everything!

I would highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon.

Dr Shortt is a professional doctor with an appropriate sense of humor. From the first appointment to the surgical follow ups, I was impressed with his work on my breast reduction. The experience was excellent, and I would highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon.

Your staff is awesome!!

You are an amazing man. Thanks for helping me cope with post breast cancer. I know you are not paid enough for by ohip I appreciate how you helping my quality of life. Thanks again. Btw your staff is awesome!!

Fabulous operation. Couldn’t be happier.

Had a basal cancer removed from my lip. No scar. Fabulous operation. Couldn’t be happier.

He truly cares about his patients.

I’m a young woman who went through a double mastectomy and had severe scarring. He finished my reconstruction and helped me feel whole again when others told me they couldn’t help me. He truly cares about his patients.

I have nothing but positive feedback regarding Dr. Shortt.

I have nothing but positive feedback regarding Dr. Shortt. He performed excess auxillary breast tissue removal from under both my arms. He did a great job and paid attention to make sure no scars were left for all to see. Thanks again.

Dr. Shortt was thoroughly professional.

After having Cancer removed from my Nose I was left with Holes & Scaring, I was referred to Dr. Shortt who repaired my Nose by removing the Scaring and left my Nose looking normal again. At all Dr. Shortt was extremely Caring, & Provided Full Information. Dr Shortt was Thoroughly Professional.
Many Thanks Dr. Shortt

I am more than delighted with the results.

Can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Shortt. He performed a breast reduction and liposuction on me and throughout the entire process and follow up appointments he was kind, informative, thorough and generally awesome :). Surgeons sometimes lack the approachability that Dr. Shortt shares with his patients and I am more than delighted with the results. Nice to enjoy the summer feeling great in T Shirts again :).

He changed my life. I feel like a new person.

I am grateful to have found Dr. Shortt to perform my surgery. He is professional, kind, caring and friendly. He is knowledgeable and diligent.
He changed my life. I feel like a new person. He gave me back my self esteem. He motivated me to start thinking of a new life. I am extremely happy with my breast reduction. The operation went smoothly. Afterward no discomfort or problems and mostly him and his friendly office staff helped me in recovery period. I am very happy. I regret that I did not do this earlier. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Dr.Shortt. I am grateful to you for the rest of my life.

Dr. Shortt is a perfectionist and a compassionate person.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in October 2010. After 6 rounds of Chemo, a double mastectomy and 25 rounds of radiation, I went to see Dr. Shortt. I was tired of having inserts in my bra and worrying about other people seeing the inserts if I wore a blouse that was slightly revealing. Dr. Shortt almost rejected me as my skin was so badly damaged from the radiation. However, he took me on as a patient. In my surgery I had muscle from my back moved to my left side of my chest to help build the breast, skin from my back was also used. I also had tissue expanders inserted. Once I was happy with my cup size from the saline injections , I waited 3 months to have the last part of surgery completed. This involved taking out the tissue expanders and replacing them with the implants. I am very happy with the results. Dr. Shortt is a perfectionist and a compassionate person. Thank you!

Very happy with the results of the operation.

I had a breast reduction done and am very happy with the results of the operation.
Dr. Rodger Shortt is very good at giving out all the ins and outs ( information of procedure, side effects and recovery ). He has a bedside manner that is short and straight to point… he answers all questions and makes you feel comfortable about his procedure and answers.
There is a slight waiting time. but isn’t there with any doctor or specialist..
I would reccomend Dr. Shortt to anyone.

I am very pleased and highly recommend Dr. Shortt.

I am a breast cancer patient who had reconstruction surgery due to a mastectomy. Dr.Shortt performed a reduction, lift, and reshape on the other breast to match the implant. He did a great job. I am now a middle age woman with perky breasts. I am very pleased and highly recommend Dr. Shortt.

Dr. Shortt is truly a professional and expert plastic surgeon.

Dr. Shortt is truly a professional and expert plastic surgeon. His personality and bedside manner put you at ease. He ensures you are well informed regarding your options and procedure. He gives honest advise and answers all questions thoroughly to ensure you are comfortable with your final decision. All the staff are very attentive at Briarwood Cosmetic Surgical Centre. I highly recommend Dr. Rodger Shortt!

The results are a transformation beyond my dreams.

About 2 years ago I woke up and decided I had to make a change. I lost 85 pounds . As much as this was great I was left with lots of flabby skin and droopy breasts. I saw a couple different surgeons but decided to go ahead with Dr Shortt after getting to know him. He was the most honest Dr and really gave me the straight goods on what could or could not be done. I had a mommy makeover with a tummy tuck and a breast lift. I couldn’t be more pleased. The results are a transformation beyond my dreams. In addition to the surgery I really can’t say enough about his bedside manner. He was so relaxed and funny. He was also there for me whenever I needed to talk (which was a lot before surgery) and followed me carefully afterwards. I would highly rank this doctor.

You do not need to look any further than Dr Shortt.

When I was diagnosed with a melanoma I was sent to see Dr Shortt. It was my lucky day. I felt like I had been blindsided with the diagnosis and he put me immediately at ease. The surgery was scheduled and his kind, caring demeanor made a very anxious situation manageable. He is truly a perfectionist. Although I wasn’t concerned about a scar he insisted it would be the best it could be. I have such a sense of confidence in this surgeon and would recommend him most highly. You do not need to look any further than Dr Shortt.

The quality of his work is exceptional!

Dr. Shortt is not only a perfectionist, but he takes the time to make his patients feel at ease while dealing with a sometimes uncomfortable situation. The quality of his work is exceptional! He is there to answer any questions from the first consult to post op. I highly recommend Dr. Shortt and will be sure to go back to him!

I would recommend Dr. Shortt and his clinic staff in a hearbeat!

I had a breast reduction four months ago with Dr. Shortt. I am extremely happy with the results. He was upfront with me from the first appointment, saying that my breasts were not as large as he usually saw in his practice, and he wasn’t sure that I would get the result that I was looking for. Even right after the surgery with all the dressings on, I could tell that I the results were more than I had hoped for! I was quite nervous, and he was very reassuring, but at the same time, open about all the possible complications. I had a couple of minor issues, and he was available quickly to deal with these; he even met me in ER to make sure that I was okay. The staff members at the clinic were all very attentive and kind. A special thanks to Joanne, who was my main contact person. She was very helpful. I am thrilled with my new breasts – no more back and neck pain, and they look great! I would recommend Dr. Shortt and his clinic staff in a hearbeat!

Makes you feel very comfortable and confident in his care.

I had a breast reduction just 2 months ago with Dr. Shortt. Right from my first appointment I found the staff to be very kind and caring. It was so nice to be treated like a person which isn’t always the case at a doctor’s office. Dr. Shortt was always punctual and gave me all the information I needed and answered all my questions in a very comfortable atmosphere. I am so happy with the results. My breasts were very large and now are just right. The surgery went perfectly smooth with no problems at all. The healing process went very well too. Everything about the whole experience was extremely positive and so much less painful and scary than I expected….mostly thanks to Dr. Shortt. He is kind, caring, very articulate and knowledgeable. Makes you feel very comfortable and confident in his care. I couldn’t ask for anything better.

The result WELL exceeded my expectations and I am thrilled.

Dr Shortt preformed my Bilateral Brest Reduction and I am SO happy with the results. He was so professional and helpful right from the start. The day of surgery he was supportive and listened to my concerns and most importantly what I hoped for as a result. The result WELL exceeded my expectations and I am thrilled. The nurses and his team are so friendly and really helped me every step of the way. I would recommend Dr Shortt and his team 100%.

Thank-you so much Dr. Shortt.

I had a single mastectomy in 2012. . My mother had five failed implants by another doctor so I didn’t want to go there. My sister had a flap with an implant that she was pleased with but her doctor moved. I heard about Dr Shortt from my cancer support group and saw his results. I had a DIEP flap with only my skin and fat. He just put the finishing touches on his June surgery with a nipple and fat grafting to smooth the edge out last week. What FABULOUS RESULTS. Even my 21 year old daughter said “Mom, that looks normal” There is no higher praise. Thank-you so much D.r Shortt.

No disappointments! Love him.

I had Breast Cancer in 2010 and had a mastectomy. I thought I had no options until a doctor friend of mine suggested to make an appointment with Dr. Shortt. He’s very professional and had answered all my questions. One word to describe him : “Perfectionist”. If you are looking for someone to put you at ease and have remarkable results, he’s the one. No disappointments! Love him.

The care I received was amazing.

Dr Shortt is a perfectionist! He is kind, caring and amazing at what he does. Had reconstructive surgery with him and the care I received was amazing. He is knowledgeable, and most importantly he is realistic and very thorough. If any female needs reconstructive surgery in the area, don’t bother Dr shopping… He is the one to go to.

Great experience.

I had a great experience with him, fantastic surgeon!

Surgery on my lip.

Performed surgery on my lip . It was painless with no scar Thanks

Dr. Shortt is confident, thorough and caring.

I had a breast reduction and tummy tuck 3 weeks ago and even with the expected post op swelling and recovery time I am totally thrilled. Dr. Shortt is confident , thorough and caring. He spent hours over multiple appointments answering questions and discussing procedures and options. He is a very talented surgeon with a wonderful sense of humor that made me very comfortable before and after surgery. My breasts are tiny and beautiful. My stomach and belly button look better than when I was 20. I’ve never had a 6 pack even when I hit the gym 4 times a week. I do now. He will have improved my life.

The results were amazing!!!

I was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 26. I underwent a bi-lateral mastectomy to implants with a different doctor as I did not know Dr. Shortt at the time. I was having issues with the appearance of my scars as well as rippling. My doctor recommended Dr. Shortt and he assured me he is the best. Indeed he is! Not only is Dr. Shortt a caring, compassionate and personable doctor, he is also extremely knowledgeable and exceptionally skilled. He performed fat transfer and scar revision surgery on me. He explained the procedure in detail and took his time going over all my questions and concerns. On the day of surgery he made me feel so comfortable and even phoned me later that day to see how I was doing. The results were amazing!!! I am soon undergoing another surgery with him for nipple reconstruction. He is so patient and does not settle for less than perfection. I am so glad to have met Dr. Shortt and thanks to him I can once again feel confident about my body which at one point…

He has to be one of the best doctors I have every dealt with.

Dr. Shortt performed a breast reduction on me in September.He has to be one of the best doctors I have every dealt with. Professional and caring. Explained everything to me in detail and was such a great support the day of my surgery. I would highly recommend him.

You will not be disappointed. I strongly recommend him.

I went to see Dr Shortt because two of my friends raved about him. I am really glad that I did. He was methodical and efficient. He pointed out several things I never thought of. He gave me lots of options but did not hesitate to indicate why he felt one was better than another. I had my breasts lifted with just a little reduction. They are more beautiful than I ever hoped for. The scars are almost invisible. He may not have as much experience (or arrogance) as some plastic surgeons but he has a gift. You will not be disappointed. I strongly recommend him. He (and his staff -nurse and secretary) really far exceeded my expectations.

My tummy tuck results are amazing.

What an amazing doctor that I recommend extremely highly. He took his time to carefully explain all my options and the benefits and downside to each. I never felt that he was pushing me into anything but rather was there to provide a professional opinion so that I could make the choice that was right for me. My tummy tuck results are amazing. I went to him because of his reputation for an amazing tummy tuck and perfect belly button. He has lived up to that reputation. Anyone looking for a caring, compassionate plastic surgeon should really see Dr Shortt. He is great.

I would highly recommend Dr Shortt and would never hesitate to go to him again.

Dr Shortt has performed 2 basal cell surgeries on my face in the last year and a half, and i have to say that he is one of the best dr’s I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He’s so easy to talk to and answers any questions you have for him. His bedside manner is impeccable. I was petrified going into surgery for the first time and he made me feel at complete ease throughout the whole ordeal. And the scar on my face, while being about 2 inches long is barely visible at all. I’ve never had to wait over 10 minutes for any of my appointments with him, and Jenna at his reception desk is awesome! I would highly recommend Dr Shortt and would never hesitate to go to him again if necessary. Awesome Dr.!!

I will be able to use my hand fully in no time.

Dr. Shortt did the surgery on my hand after breaking my 4th metacarpal. I am extremely pleased with how everything went, I am happy to say I will be able to use my hand fully in no time. He was very kind and helpful.

I feel very lucky to have had him as my surgeon.

An awesome surgeon and great fellow. From Day 1 he’s been very helpful and supportive. His assistant and my nurse with him are amazing. The whole team is there for you through everything. I felt confident in his care as he was with me going into surgery, giving me his support and through the months that have followed. I feel very lucky to have had him as my surgeon.

If you are looking for a caring, warm surgeon, you have the perfect doctor.

Dr. Shortt performed a bilateral breast reduction May 2013 following a right lumpectomy in December 2011. I was diagnosed in 2011 by Dr. Kealey with a very large breast mass called PASH. From the moment I walked into their office I had full confidence in their team. Dr. Shortt was very thorough and understanding. He has an amazing bed side manner, making you feel immediately comfortable. Upon seeing him in the hospital , I felt at complete ease. Even before the surgery in the operating room, I was felt safe and confident. I cannot say enough about Dr. Shortt. If you are looking for a caring, warm surgeon, you have the perfect doctor. Thank you to the staff as well. Having been referred to another doctor with no bed side manner whatsoever it was a pleasure to have a doctor take the time to explain every detail and then be so pleased with the final result. Thank you Dr. Shortt.

He made the challenges of my situation look flawless.

It is with great pleasure and confidence to refer Dr. Rodger Shortt to anyone who’s looking for a trustworthy M.D., F.R.C.S.C, who knows the latest technologies in surgical procedures and is naturally sincere, realistic and compassionate. As his patient, I’m comfortable discussing my concerns with him and I’m certain that my concerns are always his priority. He made the challenges of my situation look flawless. I’d also like to add that the staff of receptionists and nurses working in Dr. Shortt’s office make it a warm and welcoming environment. My sincere thanks.

The results are life changing.

I received very professional and dedicated services. I was well informed and assisted so I could take the best decisions for myself. All steps were completed with great expertise. The results are life changing for me and are reaching way beyond the physical aspects of the treatments performed. Thank you for your excellent services – which I recommended to anyone looking for changes to occurred in a safe and expert manner.

I couldn’t be happier with the results!!

I was referred to Dr.Shortt and I can’t say enough good things about him from the initial consult to the end result. I was a little nervous about the procedure but he took the time to explain it to me along with the healing process. He was very caring, a good listener and reassuring. He is very compassionate about what he does and it shows through his dedication to his patients. My surgery was the Thursday before Good Friday and he took the time out of his day to call me to see how I was doing the following day. I was very surprised but again it’s a testament to his commitment to his patients from start to finish. I recently had my last follow-up and he advised me that if I had any further questions or concerns down the road not to hesitate to contact him. Dr.Shortt is a very intelligent and well respected doctor in his field. I have already recommended him to others and may be seeing him again in the fall. Thank you Dr.Shortt I couldn’t be happier with the results!!

I am very pleased with the result.

Dr. Shortt performed a breast reduction on me. I am very pleased with the result. He is easy to talk to, proffesional and very skilled. I would highly recommend this doctor.

Innovative ideas, great work and a beautiful final result.

I have been dealing with Dr Shortt from September 2011 until April 2012. A very easy Doctor to talk discuss options with. Innovative ideas, great work and a beautiful final result.

Very polite & professional.

I had seen Dr. Shortt about 2x for a consultation for my upcoming Double Mastectomy AND immediate DIEP Tram Replacement. He is very polite & professional and he is “easy” to talk to. His receptionist Jenna is AWSOME young lady.

I love how I look.

I had surgery on my breasts. My GP says it is the best she has seen. I love how I look. He is AMAZING and so nice.

Feel and look better than ever before.
