Meet Edward H. Farrior, M.D., F.A.C.S.

A leader and innovator of facial plastic surgery

Dr. Farrior is a sixth-generation physician and facial plastic surgeon who has lived and worked in Tampa, FL for most of his life. He has been in practice since 1987 and has operated out of his own surgical center, Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery, since 1995.

Due to the complex anatomy of the face, head and neck and its visibility to all, Dr. Farrior has chosen to focus exclusively on facial plastic surgery, including cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. He continually refines 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 Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) and is actively involved in the Tampa Bay community.
