Meet The Tampa, Florida Team

Edward H. Farrior, MD, FACS

Dr. Farrior is a sixth-generation physician and surgeon whose father, Dr. Richard Farrior, only recently retired from practicing facial plastic surgery in Tampa. Dr. Edward Farrior has been in practice since 1987 and founded the Farrior Facial Plastic Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery Center in 1995 which became Farrior Plastic Surgery Specialist in 2015. He has continued to refine his knowledge and skills through teaching and his association with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery(AAFPRS) and the American Board of Facial and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery (ABFPRS).

Dr. Farrior returned to Tampa after attending medical school at the University of Virginia and completing his residency at the University of Michigan. Advanced training in facial plastic surgery was obtained through a fellowship sponsored by the American Academy of Facial and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery with Dr. Richard Farrior. Dual Board Certification through the American Board of Facial and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology confirms advanced knowledge and training in facial plastic surgery.

Because of the complex anatomy of the face, head and neck and its visibility to all, Dr. Farrior chose to practice the surgical specialty of Facial Plastic Surgery, including cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.

Dr. Farrior is actively involved in the Spring of Tampa Bay, a local shelter for abused women and children since 1993 and on the Board of Directors since 1998. Additionally, he volunteers his time and skills to the Face to Face Organization, which gives abused women the opportunity to undergo free reconstructive surgery there by helping them regain confidence.

he has been a mentor for students through the Hillsborough County Education Foundation.

In January 2000, Dr. Farrior was awarded the Physician Humanitarian Award for his long time contributions to the community, presented by the Florida Medical Business Healthcare Awards. In 2002, he was awarded the Community Service Award by his peers at AAFPRS. This is presented to the member who has distinguished himself by providing free medical service to those in need in the community. Giving back to the community and helping others has been a personal success for Dr. Farrior. He encourages his staff to do the same by facilitating their work schedule to allow mentoring, fundraising events and other volunteer related requirements.

Due to the constant integration of new technologies, as well as the proven, time-tested techniques, Dr. Farrior believes that teaching is critical to remain current in all aspects of facial plastic surgery. For this reason, Dr. Farrior continues to teach courses on facial plastic surgery. As an invited guest lecturer both nationally and internationally, he remains up to date having the knowledge to recognize useful innovations over fads.

He directed the Advances in Rhinoplasty international course in Seattle in June 2009 where he secured the top leaders in the field to make the course a success. This was followed by his participation in the First Asian Pacific Rhinoplasty Experts Forum in Seoul, Korea and then by the 2010 European Academy of Facial Plastic in Antalya, Turkey.
