He has served on the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for 10 years, having been Western Region Vice President, VP of Education, and most recently, elected President of the AAFPRS in 2010. Dr. Sykes is most proud of his teaching, having contributed to the training of over 75 residents and personally training 28 fellows in facial plastic surgery. "My philosophy and approach to faces is different than many plastic surgeons, I believe in making noticeable changes in the face that do not appear to others as though the patient has has had a treatment. This extends beyond surgery to topical skin treatments such as peeling or lasering, injectable treatments such as Botox or injectable fillers. My patients want to look more attractive, refreshed and natural. "
