My Story

About Dr. Adelyn Ho

As a child, I played piano and violin and received an Associate Diploma for Performance in Piano from the Royal Conservatory of Music. I enjoy painting and ceramics and have a passion for beauty, detail and creativity. I found a wonderful link between these artistic elements and plastic surgery and was fortunate to be trained by some of the best plastic surgeons in Canada.

My interest in women’s health, my extensive training with a specialty in breast and microsurgery, and my natural understanding and empathy of a woman’s needs and desires inspired me to focus on aesthetic and breast reconstructive surgery. As a female surgeon and mother of two, I feel that I can provide you with a feminine and meticulous approach to treatment, as I can personally relate to the changes that many women and mothers experience. I am excited to work with you to understand your specific concerns to design an individualized treatment plan.

Concern for the wellbeing of my clients doesn’t stop when you leave my office. As co-founder of LaBratory Bras, I care about your recovery experience, which motivated me to design surgical brassieres that meet your special needs. I also offer a range of brand name products to keep your skin in tip-top condition.

I strive to establish genuine relationships with my patients that are founded on the highest levels of trust, care and leading-edge technical skills with results that say, “This is exactly what I wanted!”

Please don’t hesitate to contact our office so we can start this exciting journey together.
