Harrison G. Bartels, MD, will join Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery in Fall 2023 as a Facial Plastic Surgeon specializing in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, head, and neck, including Mohs reconstruction and functional rhinoplasty. Dr. Bartels is board-certified with the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and is board-eligible with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
While Dr. Bartels is new to Tampa, he is a native of the Southeast. He grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina, and graduated magna cum laude from The University of South Carolina. He earned his medical degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine, where he was inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society and served as chair of the Honor Council.
Dr. Bartels completed five years of residency training in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at The University of Virginia under the highly-regarded facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Park. During residency, he developed a particular interest in cosmetic facial plastic surgery and pursued additional fellowship training with our own Dr. Edward Farrior at Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery in Tampa.
During his fellowship, Dr. Bartels operated extensively with Dr. Farrior and gained experience in cosmetic surgical techniques, including the deep plane facelift, endoscopic brow lift, and revision rhinoplasty, among others. Concurrently, as a University of South Florida faculty member, Dr. Bartels worked closely with the USF ENT residents and had the honor of serving our nation’s veterans at the Tampa VA hospital, where he gained extensive experience performing primary and revision rhinoplasty.
Before joining us in Tampa, Dr. Bartels is pursuing a lifelong dream to live abroad and currently serves as a Consultant-Otolaryngologist for Te Whatu Ora Health New Zealand Southern in Invercargill, New Zealand. There, he is gaining additional experience in facial reconstruction following skin cancer resection, functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty, scar revision, and facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Bartels will be available for booking new patients in Tampa beginning Fall 2023. Follow along on his New Zealand adventure on Instagram.
Dr. Farrior is so much more than a doctor – he’s an artist. Dr. Farrior has the right medical knowledge and the artistic vision needed to create harmony among his patients’ facial features. He truly listens to his patients and is always open to their concerns.
