Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
FOCUS: The UC Davis Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery group 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 former American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery President, 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. Dr. Sykes and Dr. Tollefson specialize in cosmetic surgery of the face. CHARITABLE WORK: Both Dr. Sykes and Dr. Tollefson are deeply involved with numerous charitable organizations. They often travel abroad on humanitarian missions to provide pro bono surgeries, primarily for those with cleft lips and palates or other genetic deformities. Serving these children in need has been Dr. Sykes’ and Dr. Tollefson’s greatest professional privilege. WHAT SETS THEM APART: 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.
