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!

Blepharoplasty vs. Ptosis Surgery

Blepharoplasty vs. Ptosis Surgery – Medical Minute

November 28, 2018

Eyelid surgery can be a fairly quick and often painless procedure to quickly look years younger.  But did you know that eyelid surgery isn't always just about cosmetics?  Sometimes droopy upper eyelids can actually impede your vision and be a fairly serious medical issue! Today I'm excited to talk briefly about the difference between general eyelid surgery and specific types such as ptosis surgery.  The key takeaway is the following: Blepharoplasty is a general term referring to all types of eyelid surgery. Ptosis surgery is a type of eyelid surgery that corrects droopy upper eyelids. Thanks for watching!  And feel free to share this post on your favorite social media site! :)

Local Anesthesia for Best Blepharoplasty Results!

November 26, 2018

Today's Weiss Medical Minute discusses the benefits of local anesthesia for lower eyelid surgery. If you're a part of our "family of patients", you probably already know how passionate I am about local anesthesia providing the best results. If you're a prospective patient, I hope this provides a quick but comprehensive look into why I feel the way I do.

Importance of Needle Selection for Botox injections

March 15, 2018

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!

Asian Eyelid Surgery – Ask Dr. Weiss

September 1, 2016

Asian eyelid surgery requires a specialized knowledge of the unique physiological characteristics of the asian eyelid. Because of this, oculoplastic surgeons are often the best choice because of their focus on eyelid surgery as a specialty. Listen to Dr. Weiss discuss a patient and their fantastic results (complete with before and after pictures of course).
