Joining the Elanic Team

Dr. Topcic once worked at the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery and Burns in UKC Ljubljana but joined our private practice last year to perform cosmetic corrections on the face, breasts, and body, as well as non-invasive procedures. He is the first and, at the moment, also the only surgeon in Slovenia to perform hair transplantations as the top-notch specialist for the most modern FUE method.

A Commitment to Quality

Vilijem believes that high-quality services must be guaranteed through constant education, so he regularly attends congresses and actively collaborates with colleagues from Slovenia and abroad, sharing the knowledge and technologies gained in his outpatient clinic. 

In order to bring attention to cosmetic surgery, make it affordable to every interested individual, and dispel the numerous misconceptions and taboos about the topic, he regularly publishes his results on different social media platforms and writes articles for various publications. 

He believes that every successful cosmetic procedure is based on a natural appearance, adjusted to every individual with the help of the most cutting-edge equipment. He uses humor and good-heartedness to make sure his patients are eager to return to this practice.
