Dr. Jonathan Sykes' Facial Plastic Plastic Surgery Program takes one fellow per year and involves a one-year experience . The training encompasses all branches of this discipline including all cosmetic surgery of the face and neck (rhinoplasty, facelift, browlift,etc) cleft and craniofacial anomalies, orthognathic surgery, facial trauma, facial blemishes and reconstruction after cancer surgery.
