Our Philosophy

Our philosophy and approach to faces at Sykes Facial Plastic Surgery differ from many other plastic surgeons. Dr. Sykes believes in making noticeable changes in the face that do not appear to others as though the patient has had a treatment. He calls this “surgery without an operated look;” however, that extends beyond surgery to non-surgical skin treatments. The patient can determine whether they want to have a more or less invasive procedure, but the goal of treatment for Dr. Sykes is ultimately an end result without a “treated or operated” look.

​In line with this philosophy, Dr. Sykes believes careful consultation and evaluation of the patient are paramount. After this, he advises his patients on what procedure(s) can best achieve the intended goal for a balanced, refreshed, natural look. Harmony between facial features creates beauty, and Dr. Sykes looks forward to having you in his office to help you achieve your desired aesthetic.
