ABOUT DR. HANI SINNO

Dr. Hani Sinno’s clinic in Montreal’s Golden Square Mile chic neighborhood feels like an extension of the nearby Museum of Fine Arts. As patients are warmly welcomed by Dr. Sinno into his exquisitely decorated offices in Victoria Park Medispa to discuss their aesthetic desires, they find themselves transported into a world of elegance, beauty and luxury. This first elated encounter is only the introduction to the “Dr. Hani Sinno Experience’’; a refined world of subtle glamour and seductive appeal.

Dr Sinno’ s rise to professional acclaim in Quebec was through his reconstructive plastic surgery work namely in Breast Reconstruction. Growing up in war-torn middle east, he was an eyewitness to how people can be marred for life by their physical and consequently emotional disfigurement. So years later in his reconstructive surgery practice in Montreal, he performed meticulous microsurgical procedures and was able to help thousands of men, women, and children suffering physically from whole body deformities. He expertly performed reconstructive surgeries on malformations affecting the head and neck, body, limbs, and mutilated nerves. The surgery closest to his heart was in DIEP flap and implant-based reconstruction. Dr. Sinno was successfully able to help breast cancer survivors regain their feminine self-image and self-confidence. His surgical prowess and empathy saw referrals pour into his practice from across Canada further deepening his passion and commitment to aesthetic and cosmetic surgery. “During my training, I was taught the goal of breast reconstruction was to create a breast mound to help women have balance when wearing clothes. That was not good enough for me! I strived to offer a personalized approach to help the cancer survivor move on with her life by giving her the aesthetic looking breasts that she always dreamed of with and without clothes”.

Now Dr. Hani Sinno has firmly positioned himself as a renown plastic and cosmetic surgeon in Canada through his passionate dedication to providing his patients with his exceptional trademark mantra: “natural results, small scars, fast recovery”. His commitment towards fulfilling his pledge has made Dr. Sinno the go to plastic surgeon authority for rhinoplasty, aesthetic breast surgery, and facelifts. He aims for natural outstanding results for every patient. His firm belief in attainable long-lasting results distinguishes his consultations, advice and procedures. He never promises what he cannot deliver, refusing to be involved in a procedure that will yield unnatural or unrealistic results. He diligently explains to his patients in minute detail alternate invasive and non-invasive techniques and projected outcomes. He carefully asks questions as he thoroughly examines his patients and visually outlines all steps of the procedure. He points out the possible risks, potential outcomes as well as the pre and postoperative process in great detail. The privacy and trust of his patients is sacred.
Dr. Sinno designs with impassioned precisionism each step of the cosmetic process to ensure the safety, comfort and individuality of his patients. He is backed by a carefully hand-picked support team. A gracious administrative team; concierge and call center service; VIP valet parking service with private entrances to Victoria Park Medispa; a personally trained competent crew of attentive caring nurses in the office, operating room, recovery room, and overnight care if necessary, as well as a distinguished nurse service when needed for your care at home. His anesthesiologists are remarkable; allowing for a safe, comfortable, and fun surgical experience. The “Dr. Sinno Experience” is designed to be the best he can physically offer.

Dr Sinno is a man of humanistic attributes and talents. Primarily he is a devoted father, environmentalist and an artist. He believes that each new day is a privileged blessing and strives to enjoy a life of health, contribution and adventure. He achieves this through a healthy sustainable lifestyle of indoor and outdoor sports, nature and meditation. Dr Sinno also continues to enjoy his philanthropic ventures, volunteering for various NGOs; Operation Hope, a non-profit organization that Dr Sinno created to help people in Quebec; Dancing with the Stars – Just for kids foundation; feeding the homeless in local community shelters; and raising awareness to global climate change.

“We are living in truly exciting times of staggering awareness, unprecedented innovation and technology in most walks of life,” he says with unhidden enthusiasm “and I am eager to master the latest knowledge in the world of aesthetic procedures and plastic surgery. It is my privilege to offer my patients THE special experience in this wonderful world of beauty and wellbeing”.

ABOUT OPERATION HOPE

Dr. Hani Sinno works with many charities to give back to the medical community both on a local and global level. During his residency he was awarded a scholarship for his volunteering with Operation Smile, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children around the world with cleft lip and palate lifesaving surgery. In 2020 he participated in the Just for Kid’s Foundation Dancing with the Stars competition and personally raised over $12,000 for the Montreal Children’s hospital. Philanthropy is close to Dr. Sinno’s heart and is worked into the practice as much as possible.
