Jonathan Sykes, MD, professor of otolaryngology in the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine, this week has been appointed president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS).
The academy is the world’s largest association of facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Its members specialize in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and focus on the face, head and neck. Sykes will represent the more than 2,700 US-based facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons. He served a four-year term as the organization’s vice president of education and also was a member of its board of directors.
At UC Davis, Sykes directs facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery and practices with Roseville Facial Plastic Surgery in Roseville, Calif.
“The field of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery is advancing at lightning speed with many exciting innovations on the horizon,” he says. “AAFPRS members stand at the forefront of these advancements, and I look forward to promoting the academy’s mission of driving awareness and education around them."
