Her love of art and her love of biology led to the opening of the Jupiter Plastic Surgery Center, where Dr. Robin Sykes specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for the face and body. Inspired early on by stories she read about how plastic surgery helped those with traumatic injuries, she set her sights on John’s Hopkins University and earned a medical degree. “I have always been good with my hands and have always worked well with people, especially one-on-one,” she says. “Plastic surgery seemed to be designed to meet what I wanted to do with my life.” The demand for her expertise has grown recently in an era in which everyone is obsessed with selfies. “Our society is becoming more and more enamored, it seems, with seeing and taking pictures of ourselves and others,” she says. “I think this leads to some problems because selfies tend to make people look distorted–nose too big, chin too small, etc. It all comes down to figuring out what the needs and desires of the individual are and working out possible solutions for that individual.” When she is not expressing herself in the operating room, she is doing so by playing the flute or creating artwork.
