Welcome to my blog! My goal here is to get more personal – and simply share stuff with my friends, family, and patients! You can expect some posts on the latest advances in cosmetic surgery (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!

And we here at Weiss Cosmetic love our family of patients “All The Way”! As promised, for those of you whose taste might be more appreciative of jazz standards and for you crooners out there, I’m thrilled to share with you another karaoke offering, “All The Way”. The song was written by famed songwriter Jimmy Van Heusen, and is dedicated to my dear friend Pat D – because she actually worked with the composer! Pat and Jimmy worked together in the 40s and 50s; she was his assistant, helping him as he composed hit after hit for Broadway, movies, TV and was even there for Jimmy’s first song! She’s also had the pleasure of wedding dancing (and smooching) with Frank Sinatra and horseback riding with Jimmy – and that’s just a couple of her fascinating stories (such as the time she was crowned “Miss Dairy Queen” in Lindstrom, Minnesota for writing the song, “I Like My Eggs With A Kiss”). “All The Way” won the 1957 Academy Award for best original song from the movie “The Joker is Wild” – one of my favorite films. So here you are, Pat, after much delay: “All The Way.” Karaoke Participation Instructions You’ll […]
Anyone else excited to see Avengers: Infinity War? As a culmination of 10 years of cinematic storytelling as well as the embodiment of the stories and characters that I grew up with, the potential for this movie has me thrilled! So thrilled, that I wanted to again offer a thematic maze contest for your enjoyment! As you would expect, the Avengers are in trouble (when are they NOT?)! And it’s up to you, Daredevil (the blind lawyer turned masked crimefighter with radar-like senses) and the Black Panther to rescue them by completing this even more challenging maze! Return the completed, correct maze with your scheduled appointment and win $300 of office credit! Remember, you can claim your $300 credit by simply bringing in your completed maze to your office visit scheduled by May 14, 2018! While you can’t use more than one discount at a time, you’re certainly welcome to keep your office credit from this contest “banked” for as long as necessary if you win!

We’re excited about the latest Marvel film to grace the silver screen – Black Panther! (You know we’re comic book nerds over here right? Did you see our Spider-Man comic collection blog earlier?). While the titular hero struggles with claiming his royal birthright and a menacing supervillian, we have a challenge for you to take on! We won’t be able to give you access to the Avengers HQ or control over the nation of Wakanda – but we CAN give you a $250 credit in our office! All you have to do is help T’Challa (that’s our hero’s real name) reach the end of this fiendish maze and rescue his friend. This maze was pulled from vintage 1978 collection of mazes featuring a number of Marvel’s famous costumed crusaders! Good luck, true believers! Download the Black Panther Contest Maze
Congratulations to L.U. of Irvine and Shari of Irvine for winning our Name That Tune contest and correctly guessing the song as “The Swan”, by Camille St. Saens! They both will receive $500 in office credit to be used toward any service or procedure we offer. Here are some interesting facts about “The Swan” or “Le Cygne” in French: The Swan was the only movement from the “Carnival of Animals” that St. Saens allowed to be performed in his lifetime. When choreographed to ballet it is often known as “The Dying Swan” after a poem by Tennyson. When performed alone, it is commonly scored for solo cello and solo piano. Enjoy this beautiful version of “The Swan” performed by world-famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
