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

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.

Feel and look better than ever before.
