As many of you know, I’ve been injecting Botox Cosmetic since 1989. As an oculoplastic surgeon I have used Botox before it was approved for cosmetic uses – treating blepharospasms and facial spasms with the then-novel product. As a result I have become familiar with the nuances of the product and techniques for performing injections. One of the things I have noticed is that needle selection plays an important role in the efficacy of the Botox injections and patient comfort. Enjoy this brief but hopefully informative presentation on how important needle selection has become to me. Now for a little dessert after that medical main course! I did a cover of the classic country standard Tennessee Waltz! This cover is dedicated to Cheryl L., who informed me that (in a rather wonderful coincidence) it has been rumored her relatives were involved with the composition of the Tennessee Waltz!
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!
We thought you’d be interested in a brand new procedure from Allergan called Kybella. All it takes is a few injections to dissolve away the fat that causes the ‘double chin’ appearance. Watch an actual treatment session, hear Dr. Weiss explain the procedure and listen to patients talk about their experience several months later! Learn how to get Rid of Your Double-Chin with Kybella
Here’s an interesting factoid: Dr. Weiss’ birthday (April 15) falls on the 10th anniversary of Botox Cosmetic, a product Dr. Weiss has been intimately involved with since the beginning. And here’s another: Did you know that 10 years ago, Dr. Weiss was being interviewed on the radio the very same day that Botox Cosmetic received its FDA approval? We thought that was pretty awesome! While we’re not exactly sure what Botox did over its special weekend – probably just “relax” (did you get it? Or do you “needle” little time?), Dr. Weiss certainly managed to “inject” some fun into his special day. He headed out to North Hollywood for the Thai New Year (which ALSO falls on his birthday – is this the month for coincidences or what?)! As expected, the Thai New Year is a grand celebration, complete with great food (of course), mediation, and beautiful dances! Check out a couple of pics from the festivities and we’ll see you in the office!
