I cannot say enough good things about my surgery and follow up with Dr. Shortt. He is very thorough and honest and my results have been life changing!! I had a tummy tuck and liposuction with minimal discomfort and downtime. I am truly thrilled and can honestly say the whole procedure and follow up was way better than I ever thought possible. If you are considering any procedure, I would highly recommend Dr. Shortt and his team.

I absolutely love the results of my surgery with Dr. Shortt. He was so thorough and honest in our consultations. He asked a lot of questions that helped me decide what I wanted my end results to be and it made me feel he and I were on the same page. I felt very prepared and comfortable going into surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Shortt and his amazing team to anyone considering breast augmentation or any cosmetic procedure.

Dr Shortt was forthright and honest about predictable results and never once exaggerated what the outcome would be. Professional to the end and very knowledgeable/informative before and post surgery. I never had a doubt about my choice of physician with respect to Dr Shortt and his staff.

I am very pleased with my results. I was told by other surgeons that my situation was complex and some were even not willing to take my case on. Dr. Shortt was very open and honest. He was always available to answer questions and made me feel comfortable through it all.

I recently had a scar revision surgery to repair scars from a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result it is more than I could have hoped for. I am so grateful to Dr Shortt for his empathy kindness and professionalism. His staff reflected that image and were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Even though I had a bilateral I feel very happy when I see myself in the mirror. That says everything.
