Industry Leadership

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, he continues to lead courses on facial plastic surgery.

As an invited guest lecturer both nationally and abroad, he remains up to date and has the foresight to recognize useful innovations over fads. Dr. Farrior directed the Advances in Rhinoplasty international course in Boston in 2008 and 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.
