Zizmor could not be reached for comment, according to the Real Deal.


Most New Yorkers would likely recognize Zizmor because of his campy subway advertisements for cosmetic procedures.

The ads always featured a picture of a smiling Zizmor coupled with a rainbow and a before and after picture of a happy patient, Metro reported when the dermatologist announced his retirement. The ads have been running on the trains since the 1980s.
