Tummy Tuck

The goal of a tummy tuck is to provide a beautiful result, but at the same time not have it so obvious that people will know you had something done.  There are a few techniques to receive this result, like a low scar to hide under the bikini, and a natural looking belly button.  And for some people, liposuction is used to try to create contouring or the bikini bridge, or a nicer hour-glass shape.  The end goal is always to create a beautiful result, so that a stranger would not know you had anything done.  Every tummy tuck surgery is planned with the patient’s goals in mind.

Breast Surgery

Many people are unhappy about their breasts and there are many solutions for this.  Our goal is always to create a natural, pretty and beautiful result.  Sometimes an implant is the perfect solution for what a patient has in mind, and other times fat grafting is a great solution which involves removing fat from one are of the body and transferring it into the breast for more volume.   Fat grafting can also be done in combination with an implant, to conceal the edges to make the breast look more natural.  It can provide a more subtle, natural looking result. Every breast surgery is designed with the patient’s goals in mind.

Facial Surgery

For some patients, we try minimally invasive facial treatments such as Botox® and for some patients it just does not make sense.  For these patients, facial surgery is a great choice such as raising the position of the eyebrows, or to take out the extra skin on the eyelids (blepharoplasty), to tighten the skin or to remove the bags of the lower eyelids.  Facelifts are great surgeries for improving the nasolabial region, the jowls, and tightening the neck.  Facial surgery really depends on what patients need and that is something we will discuss during the consultation.  The goal is always to help our patients age gracefully.

Facial Rejuvenation

What is facial aging?  It is a change in the appearance of the skin, the volume of tissue and the position of where this volume is, and the laxity of skin.  In order back the clock up, we really need to address each of these changes and we have options for each one.  These options don’t always involve surgery, such as Botox® which works really well to minimize wrinkling, to prevent wrinkling from happening, it is great around the eyes, and it is great around the forehead.  Fillers can be used to replace lost volume around the eyelids and the cheek area, and around the jowls.  The other option for facial rejuvenation is laser treatment.  With aging we get wrinkles, pigmented spots, broken blood vessels, and lasers work really well to improve upon these.  It is not a magic wand, but it is the best treatment to turn back the clock on the appearance of the skin.  We have a variety of lasers and a variety of techniques, and the treatment chosen depends on what the patient’s individual needs are, which we will go over during a consultation.

Mommy Makeover

The Mommy Makeover is very popular and consists of a tummy tuck and some type of breast surgery.  There is no other surgery that will have as much transformation for someone, as the Mommy Makeover.  Each patient has different needs, for example, some may need a breast lift, or a breast augmentation (enlargement) with an implant, or a combination of a breast lift and an augmentation, and for some people it would be a breast reduction.  There are some additional surgical treatments that some patients may want, such as labiaplasty (vaginal rejuvenation).  Our goal is always to give the patient the best possible result, which will be based on individual needs.

Testimonials

Huge Breasts Be Gone!

Absolutely hands down the best! Dr Shortt is very skilled and has a warm, caring personality along with a sense of humour:) You are in the best hands should you choose Dr. Shortt. Thank you Dr Shortt and Joanne for making this a great experience!

He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations.

Dr. Shortt performed breast reduction/tummy tuck surgery and I am very happy with the results. He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations. I’m a 64 yr. old woman who has lived with shoulder and back pain for years. I decided to have a breast reduction in the hope of easing this discomfort and improving my quality of life in retirement. I was able to discuss questions and concerns easily with Dr. Shortt. He has a quiet, kind manner , complemented by a good sense of humour. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Shortt to my family and friends. The office staff are also very professional, friendly and helpful.

Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind.

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