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

All in all I can not say enough good things about my experience with both Dr. Shortt and his staff

Dr Short t was my surgeon for breast reduction, tummy tuck, bra-line back lift and panniculectomy. I was at ease upon our first meeting. I felt he genuinely was on my side and interested in my well being. Although the surgeries I have undergone have been major , the pain was surprisingly minor. I have had excellent recoveries and shockingly minimal scaring. I could not be more satisfied with having been his patient. I did some research about plastic surgery and costs were in line with others. All in all I can not say enough good things about my experience with both Dr. Shortt and his staff

I had a bump on my thumb removed by Dr Shortt a few years ago.

I had a bump on my thumb removed by Dr Shortt a few years ago. It was e third time I’d had it removed, as it kept growing back, but since Dr Shortt removed it, it hasn’t returned!

I’m very pleased with the results of my explant surgery.

Dr Shortt was recommended to me for my explant surgery. I was informed he was the best surgeon for the job and that I would be very happy with the results.
We met on a couple of occasions before the surgery and discussed the options of new implants, fat grafting or just an explant. He was courteous, respectful and very knowledgeable.
He respected my decision to just have the explant surgery and didn’t try to sell me on other procedures. He is all about what’s best for his patients. When I had my pre-op at the hospital, the intake nurse couldn’t say enough wonderful things about him and his skills. That solidified it for me.
I’m very pleased with the results of my explant surgery. It was a unique case in that the implants had completely liquified. They were done 8 years ago by another recommended surgeon in Burlington, not Dr Shortt himself. It seems they were just defective.
Dr. Shortt noted that he had never seen any implants come out in that condition. I appreciate that he is following up with the manufacturer to inform them of the situation.
if you are choosing implants, please do your research and educate yourself and if you choose to have them done, Dr. Shortt is your guy.

Dr. Shortt is a true professional, with an amazing bedside manner.

Recently I had Dr Shortt remove a large lump from the back of my leg. His genuinely friendly manner immediately put me at ease.
In the hospital, he explained how the procedure was going to work, which made me feel comfortable. The actual procedure took less than 5 minutes, with no pain. I was completely relaxed, knowing I was in good hands. Dr. Shortt is a true professional, with an amazing bedside manner. I’d trust him to do absolutely any surgical procedure and would feel confident that the outcome would be very successful.

Huge Breasts Be Gone!

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

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

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

Breast Reconstruction at 55 and a New Lease on Life!!

I went to Dr. Shortt for breast reduction in 2015 and things went sideways when they found an early form of breast cancer (DCIS). It hadn’t shown up on the mammogram 6 months earlier. Dr. Rodger delivered the news, and was gentle and frank about my choices. I had been thrilled and pleasantly surprised with the breast reduction. I was equally happy about what followed after the cancer news; no chemo or radiation required: just a series of surgeries starting with a unilateral mastectomy, DIEP Flap surgery for breast reconstruction, nipple reconstruction and scar remediation, all ending with a nipple tattoo by one of his expert colleagues. I’ve never been so well cared for in my life. Dr. Shortt and his teams, both at the office and in the OR, formed a circle of care that kept me comfortable, confident and happy.
Dr. Shortt has fully embraced social media, which translates into access to tons of information through his blogs, links about procedures (i.e. DIEP flap surgery), and the ability to ask him questions remembered after appointments. He’s a straight shooter and a healer with a quick wit and a world of personal experience. I can’t recommend him enough!

Feel and look better than ever before.
