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!
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.
