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.

Dr. Shortt preformed a gynecomastia gland removal on me

Dr. Shortt preformed a gynecomastia gland removal on me, I am 20 years old and have been dealing with gynecomastia my whole life, it has caused me alot of pain and discomfort. I am very athletic and fitness is my passion, having these glands affected how I looked cosmetically as well. I was recommended by my doctor to have Dr. Shortt as my surgeon, and I am so happy I was recommended to him. Throughout the process getting ready for my surgery he was extremely knowledgeable and professional providing all the information I needed to know. His staff were very helpful as well and I sent several emails asking questions and always got a reply right away. The surgery itself went really well and I was surprised that there was very little pain following the surgery, I didn’t really need any painkillers. He removed both glands which happened to be quite large from my chest. I saw Dr Shortt for follow up appointments for the first 3 weeks after, we were both extremely happy with how I was healing and the results. In fact, I am blown away by how much better I look, there is no scar at all and no soreness and discomfort like I had before I got the surgery done. I’m impressed, and I haven’t even healed fully yet since I am only 3 weeks out, I am looking forward to the final results because it’s only going to get better from here. This was a life changing surgery for me, I am so pleased I was able to get the opportunity to have such a great surgeon perform it. If you are a male that is looking for a good surgeon to perform this type of surgery, I am confident that you will be beyond happy with what Dr. Shortt can do, I know I was. Thank you.

I highly recommend dr. Shortt, he is very honest.

I highly recommend dr. Shortt, he is very honest. I had a consultation for my son to do his nose he explained everything to us thoroughly and spend enough time with us and answered all our questions.

I had sought a breast reduction to ease the back and neck pain

I had sought a breast reduction to ease the back and neck pain I had endured for years. I had met a few other plastic surgeons over a year period. I had never been comfortable or confident enough to make the decision to have surgery…not until I met with Dr Shortt. I had been afraid of surgery and never felt convinced it was worth it. After my consultation with Dr Shortt , I was excited about how he could help. He made me feel very comfortable. During the initial examination we also spoke about the large deposits of skin and fat under my arms – a constant source of embarrassment and discomfort. I had not worn anything sleeveless in years as they spilled out. He spoke to me about “auxiliary breast tissue removal”. I was thrilled there was something that could be done and both surgeries could be performed together When explaining what the procedure would entail and the recovery time, he spoke with me not at me. He acknowledged my fears and concerns. All my questions had been answered and I knew that surgery was the right decision and he was the right surgeon for me! ( I was so excited about the prospect now that I shared with my daughter now amazing he was – she had also meet other plastic surgeons for implants for herself – she met him and was also so impressed – she had her surgery performed by him as well!) The surgery went well. At all the follow up appointments, he was always timely. You would think being exposed and examined would be uncomfortable, but is wasn’t. He is such a professional and put you at such ease with him that I never had the chance to feel uncomfortable He would exam the areas and scars and instruct how to best take care of them. He shared in my joy and excitement for the difference this had made! I feel better and look better I also want to mention what an amazing team he has as well. Everyone I came into contact with at his office were amazing! I can’t come up with one thing that I feel he could have improved on. Without any hesitation I would, and do, recommend him!

I selected Dr Shortt based on his credentials and experience

At 51 years of age and many, many years of pain, I sought out a Surgeon who would perform for me an OHIP covered Breast Reduction and after a great deal of research, I selected Dr Shortt based on his credentials and experience. Reviewing his past surgery accomplishments, I soon wanted the “Mommy Makeover”. At my first appointment, I was pleasantly surprised by the Dr Shortt’s demeanor. He was found to be very approachable and empathetic. He took the time to explain everything that I needed to know and also answered all of my questions without making it seem a burden. He went through step by step what I would go through during and after my surgery. As a very self-conscious person, he was able to make me feel very comfortable being fully exposed and was professional every step of the way. His Support Staff are all so very courteous and professional. As far as the surgery itself, I would have to say I think that not only is he an excellent Surgeon, he is a Sculptor. I am extremely pleased with the results. The few people that I have shown my stomach and newly formed belly button are astounded at the results. Currently I am 9 weeks post op and feel wonderful and able to go back to the gym. Dr Shortt being a Perfectionist wants another 6mth appt to ensure that I remain am as happy as I am today and that the scarring is as minimal as possible. He has changed my life and I am very grateful. I would and have recommended him to several people already.

I am currently 5 weeks post op and am extremely pleased with my results

I am currently 5 weeks post op and am extremely pleased with my results so far and Dr.Shortt told me if I’m happy with the results so far, wait until I’m finally healed. Dr Shortt is an amazing doctor, his bedside manner is impeccable and at every step of the way he made me feel comfortable and you could tell he genuinely really cared. He took his time to listen to me and my concerns and reassured me he would do his very best, and the results so far are amazing, I am extremely happy and feel amazing. With any big surgery it can be scarey and nervous but Dr.Shortt is very knowledgeable and most of the time had already answered all my questions I had for him and he put me at ease. His staff are amazing to work with too, especially Joanne. Thank you guys, from my very first consult to today you have made this whole experience absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend you definitely go see Dr.Shortt his professionalism and the fact that he actually treats you like a person first shows he really cares.

I am very pleased with the excellent work of Dr. Rodger Shortt

I am very pleased with the excellent work of Dr. Rodger Shortt. His expertise and great manners helped me a lot through the difficult times and multiple operations I went through. As a cancer breast patient, I had two mastectomies for my right and left breasts. Dr. Short joined the surgeon on my second mastectomy and started his wonderful work of inserting the breast tissue expanders. I visited Dr. Shortt’s clinic several times to inject the saline into the breast expanders. During these visits, I appreciated the staff pleasant attitudes and Dr. Shortt recommendations. At the last stage of the process, Dr. Shortt removed the breast expanders and inserted the breast implants and he reconstructed my nipples from my breast skin. I am very pleased with the wonderful job Dr. Shortt has completed. I highly recommend Dr. Shortt and wish him every success with all the patients.

I am so very grateful for all the hard work he did

About 8 years ago I had a lumpectomy leaving my breasts very unbalanced. It has made super uncomfortable about my appearance especially in a bathing suite. Dr. Shortt did an amazing job fixing this. I am so very grateful for all the hard work he did. My girls look like twins instead of cousins. Also, his staff is excellent and caring. I am so happy and recommend him to anyone who needs a good Plastic Surgeon who listens and get the best possible results for his patient.
