Amazing results

Doctor Tower was incredible to work with. I felt comfortable throughout the whole process as he explained in detail about what to expect with my surgery. The septoplasty surgery itself was a walk in the park and yielded amazing results. Uzma, the surgical coordinator, did a great job organizing pre and post op appointments as well as working with my insurance company. Great team overall!

I am so glad I did this

Working with Dr. Tower is such a phenomenal experience! From the moment I met him I felt at ease and optimistic. I chose him based on his top notch education and specialty, and once I met him in person I could tell he was as invested in a great outcome as I was which was very reassuring.​ I had considered a deep plane facelift and an eye lift for a few years and was nervous about the outcome looking natural. I couldn’t be happier with how natural it looks. You look like you - just about 10 years younger. I am so happy I did this and have continued to work with Dr. Tower to address other concerns.​ He takes his time, answers any questions, and clearly cares about the quality of his work. Aside from being an excellent surgeon he is also a very nice person and I’ve always enjoyed appointments with him.​ I felt that the whole team was excited about the process and the results. My surgical coordinator Carole was also a very helpful partner in this process with everything from scheduling to ...

One of the best things I ever did

I was hesitant to do my first plastic surgery (Blepharoplasty), however, it is one of the best things I ever did. Dr. Tower answered every single question and concern I had and he goes above and beyond as a Doctor. His professionalism and his demeanor are a credit to his profession. I would highly recommend him to ANYBODY who is considering any type of procedure. His work is impeccable.

The end result is FANTASTIC

I can't even begin to express how pleased I am with the results of my blepharoplasty procedure at The Spiegel Center. From the initial consultation through my first post-op visit, I was treated very professionally and the entire staff was very friendly. Uzma was my patient coordinator and she was very responsive whenever I had questions. I had a little hiccup along the way, but the end result is FANTASTIC! Dr. Tower is amazing and professional. His demeanor is so calm and reassuring, I always felt that I was in GREAT hands. The results are just unbelievable and I don't know why I waited so long to do it! I cannot forget Renee who was just so personable and made me feel at ease before the procedure. I was incredibly nervous and she was just so kind and thoughtful every step of the way. I highly recommend!

Would highly recommend to anyone

Working with Dr. Tower on bilateral otoplasty was a great experience. He was kind, thorough, knowledgable, and accessible during the pre- and post-treatment phases. He and the whole clinic staff--especially the patient care coordinator Uzma!--made the whole process great. This was my first experience like this and it couldn't have gone better. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to explore the services offered.

Thrilled with the results

I highly recommend Dr. Tower for facial procedures. He was low key, observant and listened to what was important to me while giving spot on recommendations and feedback. My experience with him as well as the staff was really great, and he is very skilled. One side of my face had aged differently than the other and my eyebrows were way off which he corrected. I was astounded with the minimal bruising, had very clean healing and am thrilled with the results!

Delighted to share my overwhelmingly positive experience

I am delighted to share my overwhelmingly positive experience with Dr. Tower who performed my daughter's rhinoplasty at the Spiegel Center. From the very beginning, we were met with compassion, warmth, and professionalism that truly set the tone for the entire journey.​ Dr. Tower exhibited an exceptional bedside manner, going above and beyond to listen to my daughter's concerns and desires. His ability to connect on a personal level and put her at ease was remarkable. Throughout the entire process, he demonstrated not only his surgical expertise, but also a genuine care for his patients' well-being.​ Moreover, the staff at the Spiegel Center played an instrumental role in making this experience truly outstanding. From the initial consultation to the post-surgery follow-ups, every step was seamlessly orchestrated. Carole W., in particular, stood out as a guiding force. Her dedication and efficiency in arranging appointments and follow-ups made the entire process stress-free. Dealing wit...

Compassionate and extremely knowledgeable

Dr. Tower is simply one of the best facial plastic surgeons. I had a septorhinoplasty performed by him in January of 2023 to fix a severely deviated septum and make a few cosmetic changes. Leading up to the surgery and after, Dr. Tower was kind, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable. Following the surgery, I developed a confidence I never quite had before and my breathing was significantly better. Fast forward to last week, he performed a revision rhinoplasty on me to correct a functional issue I was having, as well as enhancing my nose so it would become even more beautiful than he originally made it. Setting up appointments to meet with him before & after surgery is simple and quick! I'm about one week post-op right now and I am over the moon. He gave me exactly what I was looking for. I'm eternally grateful for Dr. Tower and his dedication to providing each of his patients with a gentle sense of understanding, expertise, and care. I could not recommend him more! He's a true gem...

I could not be more pleased

I am pleased to offer my review of Dr. Jacob Tower and the staff at The Spiegel Center. I recently had a facelift/necklift as well as an upper eyelid lift performed by Dr. Tower. I was most impressed with the time Dr. Tower spent with me prior to the surgery to answer any and all questions I might have had. Every step of the process was explained including the logistics of post-operative care. But the end result is the real measure, and with this I could not be more pleased. Post-op pain was minimal, and great attention was paid to ensure I understood follow-on care. Friends and family have commented on how good the incisions look having been expertly placed along the hairline and ear – as well as commenting on how wonderful the changes looked overall. As a self-described perfectionist, it was clear Dr. Tower approached each step with the goal of achieving the absolute best possible outcome. I could not be more pleased.

Exceptional care & coordination

Dr. Tower is truly an artist and he took the time to customize exactly what would best benefit me. His nature/personality immediately put me at ease as if I was talking to someone I've known for a long time... most importantly I could sense his genuineness, focus/attention to me, as the patient. It was extremely important for me to work with a doctor who had an extensive background, experience and certifications, etc. - which Dr. Towers has exceptionally built over his career. Also, it was wonderful work with a surgeon that is knowledgeable at all aspects of his profession (from new technology/innovations, treatments, surficial procedures, colleagues within the plastic surgery industry etc.). With Doctor Tower, I have had a brow lift, Fraxel, IPL and Morpheus treatments...the results have been exceptional. I highly recommend and encourage anyone interested in seeing a facial plastic surgeon to meet with Dr. Tower!

He is very knowledgeable, understanding and caring

Dr. Tower and Uzma are the real dream team. Dr. Tower is an amazing Dr. I highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable, understanding and caring. He did my eyebrow lift and dimples surgeries. He kept me informed throughout each and every procedure. Both surgeries were very successful, and the results are beautiful and natural looking. My recovery was also unbelievably quick. I highly recommend Dr. Tower and his team.

The lift is beautiful yet subtle - don't know why I waited so long

I had been contemplating a lateral brow lift for about a year or so. After doing some research, I chose the Spiegel Center as my place. I was connected to Dr. Tower and had a consult with him. The office was clean and bright. Dr. Tower was very pleasant and answered all of my questions. He was very knowledgeable about the procedure I wanted and made sure my goals could be met. The day of the surgery I was surprised at how easy it was. We used local anesthesia. I was awake and comfortable during the whole procedure. We marked everything out beforehand so that we both had the same expectations. A couple hours later, I had my new eyebrow shape that I had thought about for over a year. They look amazing!! The lift is beautiful yet subtle which is exactly what I wanted. The recovery was painless and I didn’t even bruise at all. The swelling was minimal and only for a couple of days. I honestly don’t know why I waited so long! Thank you Dr. Tower, for my renewed refreshed look. You’re the be...

Dr. Tower's very personable care is beyond noteworthy

Dr. Jacob Tower and the staff of the Spiegel Center more than met every expectation in both treatment and outcome regarding my recent neck lift. As a male in his 70's who was left with a pronounced saggy neck after losing 45 pounds, I initially had questions before proceeding with surgery. But on immediately connecting with the extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff of virtually everyone encountered at the Spiegel Center, I felt fully comfortable, understood and supported. But most importantly, the surgical skills of Dr. Tower, resulted in an awesome outcome. That, coupled with Dr. Tower's very personable care -- pre and post surgery -- is beyond noteworthy.

I love my results so much!

I am so happy that I went with Dr. Tower. At first, I thought I wanted a rhinoplasty because I was not happy with my facial profile. After my consult with Dr. Tower, he showed me how it would be more effective to balance my profile by augmenting my chin and doing chin/neck lipo. They booked me within a few weeks and I was really happy that the procedure could be done while I was receiving local anesthesia instead of general. The actual procedure was so fast and I felt really secure throughout, which says a lot because I was undergoing surgery. Most importantly (!!!) I love my results so much! I’m only 1 week post-op, but my swelling is nearly gone and I am already so happy with the way my profile looks now. I don’t want a rhinoplasty anymore - my profile is great now! Many many thanks to the Spiegel Center, especially Dr. Tower and Carole (who was my amazing and kind patient coordinator). Very seamless process and I would DEFINITELY do it again!

Dr. Tower was very supportive both throughout the pre-surgical process and aftercare and was always available for questions.

Dr. Tower performed a Septoplasty and a turbinate reduction on my nose this year (2023) and I can honestly say that even months out I notice how much it has changed my quality of life. Not only was my smell greatly enhanced, but I breathe much easier at night and congestion is no longer a full-face phenomenon. Dr. Tower was very supportive both throughout the pre-surgical process and aftercare and was always available for questions. I’ve been told I had a pretty tough nose to perform this type of surgery on but I wouldn’t have known. From comparing my nasal abilities to friends with perfect respiration, there’s truly no difference after years of a slight wheeze with every nose breath. I can’t recommend Dr. Tower enough in this regard, I never had any doubts and he was very assuring and allowed me to make my own decisions regarding the surgery! Thanks Doctor Tower!

He was very devoted in giving me the look I desired

Words can't describe how happy I am with my Otoplasty results. I would like to thank Dr.Tower for the amazing work he performed; it was perfection. He was very devoted in giving me the look I desired, and it came out better than expected. I now have the freedom of not being self-conscious about my ears. Thanks to Uzma as well for being so caring, for guiding me throughout the process of getting the surgery and explaining any questions or concerns I had. I highly recommend the Spiegel center to anyone who's looking forward to finding their hidden beauty.

If you are contemplating nasal surgery, I can’t say enough about Dr. Towers abilities and professionalism. His attention to detail from initial consultation to surgery to post op care is unmatched.

If you are contemplating nasal surgery, I can’t say enough about Dr. Tower's abilities and professionalism. His attention to detail from initial consultation to surgery to post op care is unmatched. I underwent complicated nasal valve surgery which involved harvest of rib cartilage to reconstruct my airway. I spent much of my life struggling to breath and relied on Breathe Right strips and CPAP remedies to help me cope. I wish I met Dr. Tower 30 years ago. My outcome was truly life changing. Thank you Dr. Tower! I can breathe! I cannot thank you enough!

Because of him, we moved forward with my surgery and I cannot believe the difference.

For several years, I hated looking in the mirror at my saggy face and was afraid of surgery. That all changed when I met Dr. Tower. He totally put me at ease and explained everything. And didn’t mind when I had questions. Because of him, we moved forward with my surgery and I cannot believe the difference. Dr. Tower is amazing!

I went to see Dr. Tower and he was truly amazing , he explained everything perfectly and helped me to understand what had happened and how he could fix it.

I had a nose injury for many years, but never realized how bad and unpleasant it was until I had to use a CPAP. Although people say they never noticed, it really bothered me to look at. To the point I did not want to touch or look at my nose. I was unsure if it could be fixed and hesitant to even try. I went to see Dr. Tower and he was truly amazing , he explained everything perfectly and helped me to understand what had happened and how he could fix it. He broke it down to what it would take and what the recovery would be like. He checked on me before the surgery and after and made any concern I had go away. The results of what he did made me feel like a completely new person at 56 years old and made me wish I had done the procedure earlier in life. My confidence was back and whatever I felt was unpleasant about my nose was gone. I remember breathing through my nose for the first time after my surgery and I felt the air go places I have not felt in a long time. I am a warm weather per...

Not many people get excited about surgery, especially one on your face, but he made me excited to finally fix something that has been affecting my life for so long.

Deciding to get a septorhinoplasty was very nerve-wracking. I had thought about it for years and always backed out due to fear. But, when I had my first consultation with Dr. Tower, a lot of my fears about getting the surgery went away. Not many people get excited about surgery, especially one on your face, but he made me excited to finally fix something that has been affecting my life for so long. Another thing about Dr. Tower is he wants to know who you are. There was never a time when I went to an appointment where he didn’t ask how school was going or what classes I was taking. Dr. Tower is an amazing doctor, surgeon, and person and if anyone ever needed anything for nasal repair, he would be the first doctor I would recommend.

Very attentive doctor - happy with my results

The highlights of my experience at the Spiegel Center were 1. My coordinator Carole, went above and beyond for me even when things didn't go as planned. She really worked with me every step of the way, she was amazing. 2. Meeting Dr. Tower, he was the best! Great bedside manner, he made my procedure go so much better than before. You can tell Dr. Tower really cares and he took the time to make things perfect. He made sure we had follow ups and made sure I was happy with my results. He is attentive and thorough and honestly if I ever wanted to get another procedure done I would only want to see him. Overall the staff is friendly and welcoming and I would highly recommend Dr. Tower.
