Dr. N. S. Huq — Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon in Niagara Falls

Dr. N. S. Huq was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, and now resides with his wife and three children in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, where he practices plastic and cosmetic surgery at Niagara Plastic Surgery & Laser Centre.

Well-known for the compassion and extraordinary care he extends to his patients, Dr. Huq performs many surgical procedures at the Niagara Plastic Surgery & Laser Centre. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. As a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, whose membership is reserved for doctors who are certified in the specialty of plastic surgery and are dedicated to the highest standards of patient welfare and surgical excellence, he is committed to providing the highest quality of care possible to his patients.

He has been featured on television, on the Life Network’s “Skin Deep” series on which he performed a live facelift and a tummy tuck for two Niagara residents. Dr. Huq is highly skilled in a broad range of leading-edge techniques in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, specializing in those for the face, neck, eyelids, breasts, hands and body.

Dr. Huq’s Education — Training in Hand and Microsurgery


Immediately after high school, Dr. Huq completed two years of undergraduate studies at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he was recognized on the Dean’s Honor Roll. Upon completing his term in Dalhousie, he continued on to medical school at Western University in London, Ontario. In 1998, Dr. Huq completed his studies in general and plastic surgery at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Huq also went on to the world-renowned Kleinert Institute in Louisville, Kentucky, USA, to complete one year of sub-specialty training in hand and microsurgery. And he helped with the world's first successful hand transplant.

Upon returning to Canada, he worked as a trauma surgeon while earning his Master's of Science Degree in Neuroscience and Behavioural Science. In 2000, Dr. Huq became a diplomate in the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Since then, he has been practicing in Niagara Falls, Ontario, specializing in all areas of plastic surgery.


Dr. Huq continues to practice plastic and cosmetic surgery, as well as hand and microsurgery from his clinic, the Niagara Institute of Cosmetic Enhancement in Niagara Falls. He also continues his work on a variety of regional health-, community- and charity-related projects. To this day, Dr. Huq trains medical students, residents, fellows and practicing physicians.
