    Super Happy Now

    My story is a little different than many. I originally had my breast implant surgery by a famous surgeon that specializes in breast surgery. I was mostly pleased with how things looked but it was not perfect. I really loved my surgeon and went to see him several times to discuss this. In the end he told me that he thought Dr. Shortt would be the best person to see as he specializes in fixing up implant surgery. Apparently lots of surgeons at McMaster send their patients to Dr Shortt for touch-ups as he has techniques that they don't do. We discussed different choices and the benefits that I should expect. I felt very safe and decided to have the surgery. It made everything so much nicer. The scar is not even visible and the shape is perfect. I had fat taken out of my stomac and placed around my breasts. I think that it is a perfect result. I love my two surgeons who together have made me look so beautiful and natural.

    I've not had one issue with Dr Shortt or his team. I know many doctors in my profession and he his as courteous as they come. He cares about my happiness with the final result, even though I went through OHIP and made that a priority. His staff are excellent and very helpful. The reason there are a couple of 4 stars are when I had a wound issue on a Thursday before a long weekend, I called in the morning, I did hear back from Dr Shortts secretary a few hours later and Dr Shortt would have seen me the next day, but I'd already had the issue addressed by a doctor I work with. I'm very happy and will be returning for a lower body lift in the next year!

    Rodger Shortt was an artist in the true sense. My belly button and stomach looks BETTER than it EVER did. Dr Shortt strives for perfection! Even when the scar wasn't to his liking (although I didn't know any difference) he booked his own O.R. time and at almost no charge, revised the incision and kept a close eye on it. For the first time in almost 17 years, I can wear a bikini this summer and be proud. Thank you Dr Shortt for your dedication and persistence in perfection. I knew I was in good hands when all of the nurses in the hospital sang praises about you and Dr Kealey (general surgeon).

    After losing my right breast to cancer the next step was to get breast reconstitution. Dr Shortt discussed all the different options to me and was very patient and understanding. He explained in detail what would be happening during the surgery and after. Miracles really do happen because Dr Shortt makes them happen. The results are fantastic and your skill level is amazing.
    Thank you Dr Shortt

    I had consultations with 4 plastic surgeons for my breast augmentation before I saw Dr Shortt. I knew he was the plastic surgeon for me. He was so easy to deal with. He was relaxed. He was funny. He described what could be done for me in great detail. He asked me to take some time to think about things and to see him again with as many questions as I had. I really wanted to make sure that my breasts looked fuller but I wanted a natural result. He explained a special technique he uses to help in my situation (thin skin). Although it takes a bit longer he did not charge any more for it. The results are exactly what I wanted and what he said I would get. The scars are nearly invisible. I have already sent my friend to see him and will send more.

    Dr Shortt is patient, kind and thorough. He spent hours over numerous appointments explaining procedures, options and risks. He is a brilliant surgeon with a wonderful personality. I shake my head when I read reviews suggesting he is arrogant. I think they have confidence confused with arrogance. I would not want a surgeon who wasn't confident in his own abilities.

    I had BR done on April 2nd in Cambridge Ontario and I was extremely nervous but I had the best PS and he really put my mind at ease before the surgery. I am 54 and have had large breasts all my life. I never had the cute little 32AAA starter bras, my breast came in one day huge and stayed that way. After nursing 3 children they went south like all do and I suffered terribly with neck and back pain, grooves in my shoulders and a horrendous rash with blisters under my breasts constantly. I finally made the decision to have it done and now so happy I did.
    The day of the surgery I was so nervous that I threw up twice before I even left the house! Once in the car I was a bit more relaxed but the minute I reached the hospital the nerves started again.
