He said: Seville University is one of the oldest and highest regarded academic institutions in Europe and as such its a wonderful accolade to be appointed a visiting professor.

Im thrilled at the major opportunity it presents to instruct the next generation of doctors, dentists and plastic surgeons in the latest treatments and techniques in maxillofacial surgery, and I cant wait to get started.

Through the Dr Bob Khanna Institute he has devised award-winning hands-on training courses for other medical and dental professionals and to date has trained over 12,000 doctors, dentists and plastic surgeons in the latest non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.
