Dr. Peter Fodor, hailed by U.S. News\' Castle Connolly as part of the prestigious top 1% in the nation for plastic surgery, is the pioneer that the Vaser company enlisted to research and develop their cutting edge non-invasive fat fighter: VaserShape.
Excess fat and award season do not play well together.
Gowns and revealing clothes offer little leeway for stars to look their best, so this time of year has many seeking fixes to their bulging dilemmas.
There are amazing techniques available now that eliminate surgery and utilize technology to literally melt lipids (fat) sub-dermally and even tighten skin, and the best part is that the results are immediate and even continue after the treatment ends.
Dr. Peter Fodor, hailed by U.S. News' Castle Connolly as part of the prestigious top 1% in the nation for plastic surgery, is the pioneer that the Sound Surgical Technologies company enlisted to research and develop their cutting edge non-invasive fat fighter: VaserShape.
Dr. Fodor's reputation is internationally renowned as a leader in the field of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and he is highly respected by the profession as a surgeon, teacher and author.
In the area of liposuction, Dr. Fodor bucks the trend of wide-awake surgery and prefers general anesthesia and no lasering for a smoother effect, as he tells M&C that his practice addresses numerous "redo" surgeries from botched lasering and horrific scar tissue knots that leave an uneven rippled effect for many patients.
His ongoing desire to perfect liposuction and other cosmetic procedures led to his election as President of the Lipoplasty Society of North America, which he held for five and a half years (two consecutive terms by popular demand). He is recognized as a founding member of many influential plastic surgery societies and is on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and of the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation. He also served as President of the Semmelweiss Scientific Society, is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Fraternity and has served as a Captain in the U.S. Air Force. Currently, he is Past President and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the world’s foremost organization composed of Board Certified plastic surgeons performing primarily cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Fodor has pioneered unique concepts of lipoplasty, as well as endoscopic surgery. His perfection in the mastery of his skills led to his published book “Be Your Best: A Comprehensive Guide to Aesthetic Plastic Surgery," widely considered to be the comprehensive "bible" to the discipline of plastic surgery.
The “Battle of the Bulge" that bedevils many star has finally been won by a new, non-invasive, painless award winning technology that permanently removes fat from stubborn, resistant areas. Men and women are on board for this procedure that delivers what it promises. Dr. Fodor delivers this "magic wand" treatment to a swath of clients who swear by its efficacy.
Additionally, VASER Shape won the award for Best Non-Surgical Body Shaping device at The Aesthetic Show™ (TAS) 2012, the marquee multidisciplinary medical education event for medical aesthetic professionals, in April 2012.
This cutting edge alternative to liposuction does not require anesthetic. The lack of downtime and immediate results of losing up to two inches in a single one hour treatment inspired comedian Monique Marvez to visit Dr. Fodor, inviting M&C to witness the procedure.
Her treatment was 45 minutes, and her final measurements came in at over 2 inches lost on her mid-section, with Marvez quipping, "my stomach is flatter than day old Coke!"
