As Farber Plastic Surgery celebrates the two-year anniversary of its new offices, the Boca Raton-based practice took time to reflect on what a wonderful two years it has been; highlighted by well-deserved accolades for Dr. Farber and his team, exciting innovations in aesthetic medicine, and a focus on fundraising for local charitable causes.
“I have been honored to be able to return to South Florida and focus on building a state-of-the-art practice and giving back to my community. As we move further into 2015, our focus on community giving will be one of the highlights of the year again,” said Dr. Farber.
Dr. Farber and his team at Farber Plastic Surgery dedicated themselves to the fight to combat breast and skin cancer by partnering with the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer community walk where more than 20,000 South Palm Beach residents rallied together to raise over $500,000 for breast cancer research and the Run from the Rays 5k, which helped raise over $40,000 for the treatment and prevention of skin cancer. Dr. Farber and Farber Plastic Surgery are also strong supporters of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation for their commitment to bringing state-of-the-art medical care and cancer treatments to South Florida.
To end the year, Farber Plastic Surgery held their annual FPS Party at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. At this beautiful event, Drs. Scott and Leslie Farber and the Farber Plastic Surgery team were joined by friends, patients, colleagues and special guests Brian and Claudia Fleury from Fleury Estate Winery in Napa, CA, to raise money for the Boca Raton Museum of Art’s Special Needs Arts Program.
