Gillian Plastic Surgery; The Institute for Plastic, Aesthetic and Laser Surgery
“An artist’s eyes, a surgeon’s hands, a feminine touch”
Dr. Kimberly K. Short’s dream of creating a medical center including a spa and surgery center with a medical team focused on providing the highest quality specialized plastic surgery care was created in the The Gillian Institute for Plastic, Aesthetic and Laser Surgery, named after her oldest daughter (Gillian means the “youthful one” in Latin). When Dr. Kimberly Short, opened her practice and state-of-the-art plastic surgery facility, her goal was to establish a team of compassionate professionals with expertise in caring for cosmetic surgery patients and provide a comfortable environment with a focus on continuity of patient care. This remains true today, Dr. Short, her staff, and facility are devoted to providing the highest care in a safe, relaxed and confidential environment. According to her patient satisfaction surveys conducted annually, 98% of her patients say they would return again for surgery and would recommend Dr. Kimberly Short to a friend or family member. Her meticulous attention to detail, compassionate staff and obvious empathy all help to assure patients they will be very well cared for throughout the experience. Dr. Kimberly Short’s style is as a “perfectionist.” She is committed to artistic excellence, honesty and integrity with uncompromising safety. All procedures are performed in a private, on-site AAAASF-accredited surgical facility.
Dr. Kimberly Short’s dream and vision was based on simple ideas…..EXCELLENCE AND COMPASSION. Her life experience of being a woman, a mother of four children, and enjoying the benefits of cosmetic surgery herself allowed her to experience first-hand what many of her patients would be going through and has given her a unique perspective. Dr. Kimberly Short’s life experience has made her especially sympathetic to mothers and understanding the importance of maintaining feminine contours and a natural appearance after surgery. Dr. Kimberly Short also strongly believes in preventative maintenance and loves her complementary advanced skin care services for all patients. The aesthetics program offers services performed by licensed asestheticans and medically grade skin care products to patients of all ages and gender, referred to as “La Belle Femme.” Dr. Kimberly Short supervises her aesthetics program and even formulates her own skin care compounds.

Dr. Kimberly Short incorporates the most recent advances and techniques to offer her patients many options, from surgical to non-surgical approaches.
