This place is a good place for surgery until something goes wrong or needs to be revised. In particular, with Dr. Sykes. He will tell you anything you want to hear and talk you into more procedures than you came in for. I came for a lip lift and was talked into 4 other procedures. You are not made aware that you will possibly have permanent nerve damage from a neck lift. I have complete numbness with both ears and the top of my head to the sides near my ears. I also had my wound in the back of my ears completely open up with my scalp hanging off. Not to mention severe hair loss that has devastated me.
The one procedure I came for left my lip still too long at 20mm. And have 3 holes on each side of my nose from crappy suturing. I have them fill will puss all the time and have to extract them 3 times a week. The average philtrum length from nose to the upper lip for a woman is 11-13 mm by every textbook. He tells you he can fix anything, and after a year of him saying to wait, I finally return after 6 appointments, and he tells me, "you look fine." When you see him, he talks nonstop and cannot get a word in, and if you mention anything about why you are unhappy, he says, "you said in a bad surgeon, so why ask me to fix anything?" He mansplains you to death, and the upshot after was he asked me to leave! He doesn't measure anything; he "uses his eyes." Well, I was an OR nurse for 22 years, and not once did I see a patient that did not have their body part marked with a scribe.
He is a complete and total narcissist and will tell you anything you want to hear. He is a competent surgeon until you are left with issues. "I can fix anything, don't worry"... "I am the best and have done this for over 34 years. And says, "you look great, don't focus on the small details. Look at the whole picture." This entire plastic surgery process is about the small details. The plastic surgery mantra is called "the surgery of millimeters." So I now look like a toucan with a very long upper lip, have complete numbness, lost 70% of my hair, and struggle with all of this.
If you want to see "God" in the flesh, this is who he thinks he is! Buyer beware!
