I would NEVER recommend this doctor. He has the bedside manner of a porcupine. I went in for a non-cosmetic issue, and he kept trying to push plastic surgery -- which was extremely insulting. He was rude, didn't listen to what I said, and continued to try to sell a service I wasn't interested in. When my surgery failed I was understandably upset. He saw me tearing up, and asked in an insulting, sarcastic, and insensitive way, "So why are you crying?" He didn't believe that I had followed post-surgery instructions 100%. He said we could discuss alternatives, but that I'd have to book another appointment to do so instead of discussing them while I was there and upset. I would NEVER use him again and would not recommend him at all.

I went to Dr.Sykes over a decade ago because many of my friends (NFL cheerleaders)were happy with his work. I was in my thirties and sure I needed a facelift for my acne scars..he looked at my face and told me I needed a nose job and I think brow lift at the time. I thought wow he was kinda bold to just state his opinion, but my gut said to listen to him. I went from trying to fix a defect to having men stop me to tell me how beautiful I am. I trust his artistic eye completley and have had EVERY FACE SURGERY that you can think of lol, done by him (hence the large price is total over the years)and have always been happy, and if there was an issue, he resolved it for me with no surgeon fee (one time my eye crease healed funny and he re did it for me when we were sure it had settled that way and I was still not satisfied)I am 49 years old and I look younger and prettier than when I met him.

A really good friend of mine referred me to Dr Sykes about 14 years ago, and I have seen him for all my facial surgery needs. Dr, Sykes is not only knowledgeable, but he really takes the time to answer all my questions (no matter how ridiculous or repetitive)He truly is a skilled professional during all my procedures not to mention has the utmost concern and care after your surgery too! I love the results with all of my procedures. I dont trust my face and care to anyone else but him.

I'm appalled at the ratings of Dr. Sykes. Several years ago he did a face lift for me, cheek implants, and neck and eye lift. It's now almost 10 years later and my girlfriends who have had neck lifts look like they need another one, but mine still looks the same as the day Dr. Sykes did it. I know that my girlfriend thought he was arrogant, I always found him to be a wonderful, compassionate caring Dr. When he was out of the country I had another procedure by another plastic surgeon and will never use any one but Dr. Sykes. He isn't arrogant, he just has a funny sense of humor that comes across as arrogance. I absolutely adore him, and only have praise for the wonderful work he has done for me. Since I'm now 67 years old, I'm considering facial fillers and know he's the very best in town. I went for a consultation and he spent over an hour discussing all my options. I've never felt rushed, and have always felt listened to and understood. He's a facial artist and the best!

Dr. Sykes answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. He took his time to show me in the mirror how the procedure would make a difference for me. I was referred to him by several people so I knew he had to be good.

trust your gut feelings by reading all the reviews. they are true. I too was let down by dr. sykes. In due time I will probably have someone else look at my face lift that is a real dissapointment. Very arrogant and lets you know the out come is due to your bad genes (which he comes from very good genes) seriously. beware!

Do not go to him, I wish I had listened to the reviews and my inner doubts in dealing with him. He is far too arrogant to admit he may have done things wrong, very greedy and sloppy. He will insist the issue is you and your healing, not his skills or expertise. If you are not happy with the work, he will become defensive and offer to fix it at a price, so no follow-up or corrections included in the original fee. He will start to add on charges to fix what should have been resolved with the surgery. Do not let the credentials and titles fool you, you can find more skilled surgeons who actually care about patients elsewhere, and at a much better price. He is in it for the money and ego gratification and not much else unfortunately, including patient care. Do not go to him, you will spend more time and money having another surgeon fix what he did wrong.

I was considering Botox - but had questions first. Dr. Sykes office understood this, and for a $75 consultation fee, I had the doctor to myself for thirty minutes. He wasn't rushed, or distracted. He was pleasant, professional and articulate, and answered all my questions. I made my appointment for for the Botox two weeks later. He prefers a follow-up appointment for first-time Botox recipients which I like. It offers him a chance to see the results, and get feedback. For my $375, I saw the doctor for a total of one hour - pretty good for a cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Sykes does work in other countries, academically, and altruistically. His practice is a busy one, and I did have to wait 15 or 20 minutes to be seen. I prefer to pay for services which support fixing a child's cleft in the third world, rather than just a doctor's bank account.

I had a younger friend who was very satisfied with her necklift, so I went to Dr. Sykes too. I wish I had read reviews. I never saw him just before my surgery and he had staff see me for the two followups right after surgery. He is a very busy man! Is that good? The neck sagged significantly after a month though I followed all instructions precisely. I also had damage to a mandibular nerve, causing a drooping mouth, lasting 3 months. Months later, he redid the neck lift, with only moderate improvement in the sagging and a long visible scar under the chin. A year later, I paid another plastic surgeon to redo the sloppy work and now have a perfect neck and chin. Three surgeries, $18,000 out of pocket, a lot of lasting pain with Dr. Sykes' surgeries, minimal with the final surgeon's work. Please pay attention to the reviews. And be wary of paying for limited time in an afternoon appointment in the surgical clinic. He does do excellent Botox work and seems to care about children.
