Eyelid Surgery

Welcome to my blog!

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!

BEFORE AFTER While the Internet and sites like YouTube make it trivial to find example videos of any number of procedures, we believe it is invaluable to see YOUR physician (or potential physician) at work.  Surgery is an art as well as a science; it is important to see the way your physician operates. Please take note of a few details we think are crucial: Dr. Weiss feels strongly that the use of local anesthesia (as opposed to general produces the most accurate results. (Note: Our patients are given Valium by mouth but no IV sedation is used.) This allows Dr. Weiss to sit the patient up during the procedure and examine the eyelids for symmetry with the effect of gravity taken into consideration. In this way, local anesthesia leads to the most precise and predictable outcome. You’ll notice at the 14:30 mark, Dr. Weiss sits the patient up to do exactly as mentioned above. He examines the [...]
