Procedures and Treatments
Creating a Natural Balance
The Facial Plastic Surgery Department helps patients improve the way they look and feel about their appearance through plastic surgery, minimally invasive procedures and non-surgical treatments. Under the direction of board-certified facial plastic surgeon Jonathan Sykes, M.D., the department serves patients of all ages, helping to improve the skin and facial structures, reverse the signs of aging, and correct functional difficulties.
The hallmark of the practice is creating a natural appearance, avoiding the “operated on” look of exaggerated features or pulled skin. The goal is to achieve a proportional balance between features for a definite, but subtle, enhancement. Through a personal consultation, Dr. Sykes determines your specific concerns and offers solutions focused toward achieving the best aesthetic outcome, keeping in mind the very real issues of comfort, cost, and downtime after treatment.
Facial Plastic Surgery
In some cases, such as reshaping the nose, surgery is the only way to achieve the patient’s desired changes. In other cases, such as face and neck lifts, surgery may offer the most effective and most lasting correction. During your individual consultation, your doctor will talk to you about the facial issues that bother you and explain the different approaches for dealing with problem areas, as well as the advantages and drawbacks of each approach. In cases where they feel surgery is the best procedure, Dr. Sykes bases his recommendations on experience treating other patients who sought similar changes. Dr. Sykes has performed more than 13,500 facial plastic surgery procedures during his career and brings exceptional expertise to the following surgical procedures:
