Cosmetic Procedures

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!

Younger-looking skin with 30 minute laser treatments!

We’re pretty sure you heard us talk about the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation.  It’s great for restoring that youthful look to your skin; it can erase wrinkles and stimulate collagen production to give your skin a smoother, more supple appearance. But sometimes, it can be challenging to find the time to devote to a full-face procedure.  The “lunchtime laser” series of treatments might be your answer!  Now instead of devoting weeks to healing and recovery, you can achieve comparable results with much less downtime! The “lunchtime laser” treatments are a series of approximately 5 treatments that can be performed in around thirty minutes.  After the treatment you’re free to resume basically normal activities (though staying out of the sun is highly encouraged). But don’t take our word for it! Listen to our patient Andrea give a glowing testimony about the procedure and her results! 🙂

Importance of Needle Selection for Botox injections

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!

Before you get eyelid surgery, get tested for dry eyes!

Eyelid surgery is an effective way to turn back the clock and quickly look years younger. But before you sign up for surgery, it’s important to see if you are indeed a candidate for the potentially rejuvenating procedure! Learn more about the three tests we administer (Schirmer tear test, Fluroscein dye examination, and a Slit lamp examination) to make sure you’re going to get the great results you expect from Dr. Weiss!

Local Anesthesia and Singing in the OR!

Well here’s something you might not see everyday! As you might be well aware, Dr. Weiss is a big fan of local anesthesia; he feels it’s a safer choice that leads to more accurate results! But how do the patients feel about it? Well, here’s one patient that seems fairly comfortable with our choice. But we’ll let him do the talking…er…singing. 🙂 Local Anesthesia and Singing in the OR!

Get Rid of Your Double-Chin with Kybella

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

Local vs. General Anesthesia for Blepharoplasty

Local anesthesia leads to safer and more accurate results in eyelid surgery, and Dr. Weiss is a proponent of local anesthesia when performing eyelid surgeries in his office. Local anesthesia allows for small, localized areas to be made numb as opposed to general anesthesia which puts the patient “to sleep” and requires an anesthesiologist to be present. But what makes local anesthesia the better choice for eyelid surgery? Watch the short video and find out more!
