Welcome to my blog! My goal here is to get more personal - and simply share stuff with my friends, family, and patients! I want to share compelling and what I consider interesting things that get you thinking, enjoying, talking, learning and laughing. You can expect some posts on the latest advances in cosmetic surgery and laser vision correction (although it seems like there’ll be a fair amount of music-related posts - they’re too much fun to make!) I also expect that we’ll have more contests and free stuff, special events and even very special guests! See ya later!
Newport Beach doctor to host party that includes eyelid surgery giveaway. Newport Beach, CA - Richard A. Weiss, M.D., a cosmetic Botox and eyelid surgery expert, will be hosting a Botox party for Star 98.7 morning drive personality Jamie White and six of her listeners. Listeners will be calling in all week to win their spot at Jamie's Botox Rocks party with Dr. Weiss on Friday April 12. The evening will begin at Weiss' Newport Beach office with hors d'oeuvres, wrinkle-removing botox treatments, and champagne. One lucky guest will be chosen to receive cosmetic eyelid surgery at a later date. The party will then move to one of Orange County's premier eateries, Disneyland's new Napa Rose restaurant, where guests will be treated to dinner and a wine tasting by Wine Master Patrick Farrell. Weiss has experience with Botox gatherings. He recently hosted a Botox party at a patient's Laguna Beach mansion that was attended by 40-50 socialites, many of whom received treatments during the event. According to Dr. Weiss, we are starting to witness a new social phenomenon: the patients themselves are actively encouraging their friends to 'join the club' and are wanting to share their enthusiasm and excitement about this simple but highly effective appearance-improving procedure with their friends. Dr. Weiss first read about Botox parties in London - and mentioned it in passing to a few of his patients. He was overwhelmed by the interest - many people wanted to invite their friends and host their own parties. Weiss has noticed that Botox is different than other cosmetic procedures in that people seem to enjoy talking about it with their friends, perhaps because it's so affordable compared to other cosmetic procedures, or because no surgery is involved. As an eye plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Weiss has been using Botox since 1989 - well before it was used for cosmetic purposes. Eye plastic surgeons originally used Botox for its initial FDA indication - for the treatment of uncontrollable blinking of the eyelids and facial spasms. Recognizing Dr. Weiss' experience, Allergan (manufacturer of Botox) has designated his office as one of their national training centers for cosmetic Botox treatments. Dr. Weiss is Medical Director of Weiss Cosmetic and Laser Vision Procedures, with offices in Los Angeles and Newport Beach. He received an undergraduate degree at New York University, a medical degree at Temple University School of Medicine and went on to complete an ophthalmology residency at Georgetown University. He has also taken special fellowship training in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Toronto, one of only twenty training positions available in this field yearly in North America. In 1995, Dr. Weiss was asked to travel to South Africa and perform a complex reconstructive eyelid procedure for then-President Nelson Mandela. For more information on Richard A.
