Rhinoplasty

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 all around!

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 with her was an absolute pleasure.​ I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Tower and the entire team at the Spiegel Center to anyone seeking the expertise of an exceptional surgeon coupled with a supportive and efficient staff. Our journey with them was not just a medical procedure; it was a positive and uplifting experience that surpassed all expectations.

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to correct a functional issue I was having, as well as enhancing my nose so it would become even more beautiful than he originally made it.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 decided to get revision rhinoplasty in 2021. It was something I always wanted to do, when my first rhinoplasty 25 years ago only took care of the bump I had on my bridge. I wanted the entire nose done this time. I ended up getting my 1st revision done with a very well-known doctor in Manhattan, NY, who specializes in rhinoplasty. My side profile came out nice. However, I couldn't stand looking at the front view. I was left with a bulbous tip, a deep depression, from multiple steroid injections, my columella hanging on one side with asymmetrical nostrils. With no success in fixing these issues with the NY plastic surgeon, I decided to find a plastic surgeon in the Boston area for my 2nd revision.​ I knew right away after meeting Dr. Spiegel that I wanted him to fix my nose. I should also mention.. Carole, my patient coordinator, was fantastic and helped me along the way with all my questions.​ I just had my cast removed a few days ago and I'm in awe. I love my results! I know it's early, but my nose has never looked better. It's perfect. I'm so excited that I finally have the nose I always wanted. And it's only going to get better. Dr. Spiegel fixed everything I hated about my nose. I'm so impressed with his attention to detail.​ His staff, nurses and anesthesiologist were also so nice and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Spiegel.​ My only regret was not finding him to do my 1st revision. He is the best!

I had an injury to my nose and Dr Spiegel with the incredible help from the patient coordinator Uzma Husain was able to fit me in at the last minute and get my nose fixed before it healed in the wrong position due to an injury. They literally were able to do revision rhinoplasty in 48 hours! I'm so grateful to Uzma because she actually cared about me and about my well-being and my mental health. I needed someone to do that for me. And Juliana Wall, the transition coordinator for transgender patients, is also incredible. They are both my friends and I can't thank them enough for what they did for me. The Spiegel center really cares about you. I know this because they went out of their way to save me and I am so so so thankful! Uzma Husain even stayed after hours to make sure I was okay emotionally. Wow, unexpected and I was completely blown away by how much the Spiegel center really honestly cared about me! Thank you Speigel Center!

I came to see Dr. Spiegel with a severely deviated septum. The Spiegel Center took me in so quickly, and I was so pleasantly surprised with how quickly the process moved along. I had a septoplasty and rhinoplasty, to fix my deviated septum and tweak other little things I wanted done to my nose. I am now just over 3 weeks since my surgery and the results I’ve seen have given me more confidence than ever before, and the results are exactly as we had talked about. I’m so grateful to Dr. Spiegel, Carole and the rest of the team at the Spiegel Center for how caring and thorough they are with their work. I highly recommend.

I never write reviews but I'm making the time to write one for the Spiegel Center because I cannot get over how fantastic my experience has been with them. I had septoplasty/rhinoplasty done elsewhere in early 2022 and wasn't happy with the results - my nose was asymmetrical, and one nostril looked much smaller than the other, as too much cartilage had been removed. I then came to the Spiegel Center for a liquid rhino consult, with the hope of correcting these issues. I met with Dr. Onir who was fantastic and explained what liquid rhino could and could not do, and we decided it was best for me to also see Dr. Spiegel. He did an in-office procedure and used a small amount of cartilage from behind my ear to rebuild the areas where it was missing in my nose. I'm 1 week out from the procedure and I'm completely blown away and could not be any happier! My nostrils are somehow symmetrical, and the areas that needed more cartilage are filled out. I look like myself again but with a much better nose! Dr. Spiegel is incredibly skilled and talented, and I highly recommend him. As a bonus he's also kind, funny and personable. I wish I had come here for my initial septoplasty/rhinoplasty procedure. Additionally, the entire staff is lovely. Eleanor, my surgical coordinator is amazing - she's warm, organized and easy to work with. For my 1 week follow up appointment, she accommodated my schedule, and I was seen by Dr. Tower as Dr. Spiegel was in surgery that day. He was also excellent. My whole experience has been fantastic, and I highly recommend the Spiegel Center!

I researched several doctors before deciding on the right one for my revision rhinoplasty. The overwhelming impression I got of Dr. Spiegel immediately upon meeting him was a quiet confidence and kind demeanor. He was not arrogant or pushy, but instead calm and caring. He was certain that he could give me a great result and I felt much of my anxiety disappear. He listened to my concerns and was very easy to talk to. My surgical coordinator Uzma was so kind and sweet throughout the process even post operatively answering questions and accommodating my request to have a FaceTime with a staff surgeon who helped me with some recovery tips. I’m also very happy that Dr. Spiegel continues to follow up for at least a year with in person appointments to monitor my progress and address any issues that may arise. I can not recommend Dr. Spiegel and his staff enough and I absolutely know I made the right choice! I love my result and am excited to see it after full recovery!

I can absolutely without a doubt attest that if you want an impeccable and stress free experience with life changing results, that this is the place to go!! I had the absolute pleasure of working with Dr. Tower, who is truly a master of his craft! I don't say this lightly. I am a young individual, 19, and usually a stress case about fine details, especially revolving a surgery such as mine. Rhinoplasty/septoplasty. Even this being the case, there was never a moment that I did not feel endlessly supported, informed and cared for by doctor Tower and his team. The results were above and beyond and the bedside manner of every single member at the Speigal center staff was above and beyond. Me and my family were truly made to feel like family. Doctor Tower even came in on a Sunday, at a last minute call to help make me more comfortable, and even thanked me for reaching out. The communication of this staff with their patients really makes this center the epitome of incredible health care, our care coordinator Carole was so beyond helpful and compassionate me and my family cannot thank the Speigal center enough!! If you want quality care, and brilliant life changing results, this is truly the place to be. And I am a tough critic! Im so happy to have gotten lucky enough to work with Dr Tower and his team, the results speak for themselves!!!

I had Septo and Rhinoplasty surgery at the Spiegel Center and the whole process was seamless. Carole Werner, who assisted me throughout the whole process, was a consummate professional and guided me through everything slowly and was always available to answer questions. The operation itself went smoothly and the pain afterwards was minimal. There was no surprises and the operation went better than I could of ever expected. Dr. Spiegel did an amazing job and I couldn't of been in better hands. The entire staff has been accommodating and friendly, and were especially comforting during what can be a scary time. Thank you all for helping me breathe again!!!

Chad F., Google Reviews, 3/22/23

Dr. Spiegel fixed my badly broken nose, and now I can breathe through my nose again for the first time in years. The experience was great with everyone on the surgical team being very professional and kind. The office staff, especially the patient coordinator with whom I worked, Uzma Husain, were very nice to work with and responded quickly to any questions or concerns I had.

Olivia W., Real Self, 3/14/23

Dr Spiegel and his team are exceptional! Uzma, who was my care coordinator was helpful, kind, supportive; and she made sure every question and concern was promptly and thoroughly addressed. Dr Spiegel performed a revision rhinoplasty on me (my first surgery was done by a top-rated plastic surgeon), as well as a lip lift and lower blepharoplasty. After only one week, I already look 15 years younger (even with the bruising), and am astonished at how much better my nose now looks! My whole experience could not have been better. Dr. Onir also did some fillers for me; painless and perfect. I will never go anywhere else for filler or Botox. Dr. Spiegel’s fellow, Dr. Vandenberg, also is top-notch, and played an invaluable role in my overall care. Dr. Spiegel’s expertise and experience, combined with an exceptional staff (love you Uzma!) make for a winning combination! I can see why people come from all over the country and world to The Spiegel Center.

Gretchen G., RealSelf, 3/9/23

I was extremely nervous the day of the procedure, and Dr. Spiegel and Carole were amazingly supportive. This was my 2nd revision after breaking my nose, and I was very concerned about undergoing another rhinoplasty. They answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable. The experience was phenomenal from start to finish. I highly recommend this team!

V.C., RealSelf, 2/17/23

I went to the Spiegel Center for a rhinoplasty. It was truly a positive experience from the first consultation to the cast removal. The young ladies at the front desk always carrying themselves in a positive, professional manner. Not enough can be said about Carole Werner, she is a ray of sunshine but more importantly is highly efficient at her job. She answered ever question of mine from the very beginning to even post-op. She checked up on me shortly after surgery to make sure I was doing okay and if I needed anything (which is going above and beyond). She cares about people and truly wants them to make the right decision for themselves. Last but certainly not least, Dr Spegiel from the very beginning carried himself in a cool, collected, intelligent manner. He listened to my thoughts/ideas very well. I had concerns because I felt my nose was not going to be an easy job (dorsal hump, bulbous tip, and cricked). Talking to him and knowing his extensive background was ultimately the deciding factor in why I chose him. We were able to integrate a plan and he did not disappoint!!!!! I love my new nose! The only regret is not coming here sooner! Life-changing.

I'm an operator at Mbta I drove by Spiegel Centre, when I saw this building I knew I was going to get my surgery here! I have been waiting to have my nose done for a long time, just never found a perfect place until the day I walked into th Spiegel Center everyone was so nice. My coordinator Carole Werner was exceptional, kind, very professional for the needs and wants I described. When I finally meet Dr. Spiegel he came in confident , professional and honest which is what I loved the most. No garageable talking just Honest! I told him what I wanted and had all the faith in him to do exactly what I asked. Day of surgery the staff was amazing ,kind, and again so professional. I was comfortable and ready! So now it's been one week back to take cast off and Dr. Spiegel did everything I asked to the T. I am so happy with my results I couldn't wait to write my review. One word "AMAZING"!!!!!! Love, Love,Love everything about this center. Thank You Dr. Spiegel and Carole, all the staff for all your amazing help, kindness, and understandings!

Results are so natural that it looks like I haven't actually had any surgery. After making the decision to get a rhino and laryngoplasty, I asked plastic surgery/ENT colleagues here in California who is considered the top of their field. Dr. Spiegel's name was first to come up. I did some research online and decided to take a chance and schedule a surgery. I flew out to meet him and his staff and they were wonderful. Carole was very attentive and patient with me leading up to the surgery. Dr. Spiegel was caring, knowledgable and patient with me. Fabiano was comforting and placed an essentially zero-pain IV, Riley was kind and patient in the OR. The entire staff was very considerate. Among other things they were very invested in my comfort and on multiple occasions asked me what names/pronouns I would prefer. People who know me well have been commenting that they notice something different about my face but can’t quite pinpoint it. This is actually great because the results are so natural that it looks like I havent an actually had any surgery. I have a very small scar on my neck right where my head meets my neck and a very small scar on the outside of my septum beneath my nose that are healing spectacularly well. I would HIGHLY recommend the Spiegel center to anyone looking for any gender affirming (both cis/trans) procedures!

Javia L., RealSelf, 9/14/22

The idea of getting plastic surgery has always intrigued me, and I have always searched for a good plastic surgeon, and finally I discovered Dr Spiegel after reading all of the reviews. It's been 6 months since I had my surgery, and my coordinator Uzma, an absolutely wonderful, beautiful and honest woman, answered every question I had, responded to every email I sent, and helped me with paperwork to get medical leave so I could have a support while I was recovering which made me feel less stressed, I'm so happy I had her as my coordinator and I would love continue working with her. With Dr. Spiegel, I am extremely satisfied with the results and experience I had. He is truly an incredible artist, very knowledgeable about his work and very experienced, no one will notice I had any plastic surgery, there are no incision marks, and the results are amazing yet very natural, surpassing my expectations.

Nazgol, Google Reviews, 5/15/23

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Spiegel and his staff. They truly provide excellent services with complete care for you and your needs. I had a rhinoplasty in 2018 to repair a broken nose. I have been beyond happy with the results! This year, I ended up breaking my nose AGAIN with a nerf gun (don’t ask!). I called the Spiegel Center immediately. They responded right away and fit me in the next day with an appointment with Dr. Spiegel. I was not on the schedule, and they made sure to see me first thing in the morning. Carole Werner called me that very day, the day of my appointment, and then followed up again. She took time to speak with me and make sure that I was doing well. After having a trauma to my nose, going through a rhinoplasty, and then a subsequent break, this excellent service was so important to me. I cannot say enough how grateful I am to Carole and Dr. Spiegel. I trust them completely and would recommend them to anyone!

ValCBS, RealSelf, 7/5/22

I am 2 months post op from my rhinoplasty with Dr. Spiegel, and I could not be happier with the result. He is the ultimate professional and takes the time to listen and understand his patients goals without pressuring them. I chose him because his work highlights the natural beauty of his patients without creating an overdone look - he is an artist. His team in the OR is highly competent and each and everyone of them had an A+ bedside manner. Post-procedure, I had a speedy recovery, and I think this is due to his expert surgical skills. I could go on and on about how awesome my results are but I think the major take away is that Dr. Spiegel's work creates natural looking and beautiful results that highlight the natural beauty of his patients. Thank you Dr. Spiegel and team!

Facelift

Review of Surgery by Dr. Tower My experience with Dr. Tower was nothing short of exceptional. From the very first consultation to the final post-operative check-up, Dr. Tower and his team demonstrated unparalleled professionalism, empathy, and attention to detail. In our initial meetings, Dr. Tower made me feel heard and understood, taking the time to grasp the depth of my emotional and physical struggles. His conservative approach to surgery reassured me that the results would be natural and not overdone. On the day of the surgery, the entire process was smooth and well-coordinated. The surgical team was supportive, making sure I felt comfortable and at ease every step of the way. Dr. Tower's skill was evident in the meticulous way he performed the procedures, and his follow-up care was thorough, ensuring a smooth recovery without complications. The transformation he achieved exceeded my expectations, giving me a rejuvenated appearance that profoundly positively impacted my emotional well-being. Dr. Tower's kind and compassionate nature made the entire experience incredibly positive, and I am deeply grateful for the life-changing results he provided.

finn725, RealSelf, 6/10/24

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 aftercare visits. She was always attentive, enthusiastic, and excited to see the results.​ I am so glad I did this and so thrilled that I chose Dr. Tower!

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 cannot recommend Dr. Tower and The Spiegel Center more highly nor could I imagine a better experience.

Mobilegeek, RealSelf, 12/6/23

I am a 60+ year old male and required work on almost every facet of my face, including a deep plane facelift, brow lift, upper-lower blepharoplasty. As a front-man, the CEO of a global financial technology enterprise, the task of selecting the absolute best surgeon for my needs was paramount. Fortunately, my role requires constant pursuit of excellence, consistently seeking out the best and brightest. Of the many factors to consider, such as bedside manner, my ultimate criterion focused on two essential qualities: strong passion and grasp of the medical and scientific content that would inevitably play out in the surgical theater, combined with an artistic eye for one's unique facial and personal requirements. In my experience, finding the 'artist' and the 'scientist' in one person is extremely rare. My search quickly led me to Dr. Spiegel. Beneath his unassuming and understated demeanor, his profound passion and commitment to his craft, accumulated over decades of experience, and his extraordinary artistic talents radiated clearly. Dr. Spiegel made recommendations that I hadn't initially anticipated, such as a brow lift. However, his approach was never forceful; quite the opposite in fact. He would gently offer his suggestions, and if I displayed any lack of interest, he respectfully moved on. Nevertheless, I followed his guidance, and the transformation was nothing short of astonishing. Every aspect of my facial concerns was expertly addressed by Dr. Spiegel, effectively erasing at least two decades from my appearance. I like to sum the situation up this way: if you were granted three (personal) wishes, what would they be? For me, subtracting twenty years from my appearance was number one! And this was nothing short of magic for me. I am awestruck at what the powerful combination of modern medical science and Dr. Siegel achieved. My advice is straightforward: convey your concerns to him and allow his expertise to work its wonders, while you simply step aside and witness the magic unfold. Having said all of that, there is still the issue of having a 'guide,' someone to walk you through the process, explain and weigh the options, and help you get comfortable when you have questions or concerns. In a perfect world, that would be the surgeon, but the time required for these questions is prohibitive for the surgeon. Enter Carole and the staff at the Spiegel Center. When selecting a 'guide' to help facilitate the process, Carole is outstanding as she possesses the key talents one wants in such a person: Compassion: With Carole, it's clear and unambiguous; she is the patient's advocate, and the patient's health, safety, and well-being come first. Period. Honesty: There were a few add-ons that I was considering, and Carole was the voice of reason, weighing all aspects of such decisions, including health, safety, recovery, and so on. Through her good counsel, I have zero doubt that we landed at precisely the right plan for me. Let me be clear: while Dr. Spiegel had the hands and the artistic skills, it was Carole who made me feel welcome, at home, and represented my interests throughout the process. When making key decisions -- what's in? What's out? -- you couldn't ask for a more compassionate , honest, and fiercely patient focused advocate as Carole.

Doctor Spiegel gave me the facelift of my dreams! After losing 100 lbs, my face needed some help. Loose skin was making me look older than 42, my real age. Doctor Spiegel did a deep plane facelift, the most advanced kind with the best, most natural results. As you can see, now I look more like I’m 32, or even younger. I get carded when I go to bars and recently when crossing the border the guard exclaimed spontaneously that “there’s no way you’re actually 43.” If you want astounding results like these using the finest surgical techniques, you really need to check out Doctor Spiegel. Also his office staff, especially Carole my care coordinator, are top notch.

I just can't stop going back!!! So, In addition to my first pleasurable outcomes last year (voice feminization surgery, breast augmentation, tracheal shave), I just had the following procedures with Dr. Spiegel: April: FFS(Facial feminization Surgery); June: Deep Plane Facelift. I'm still a bit swollen (totally expected), but as the swelling resides, I'm enjoying quite the slow unwrapping of a present. My face looks and feels amazing. I can't thank Dr. Spiegel and the staff at the Spiegel Center enough for the monumental effect my experiences at the Spiegel Center have had on my appearance and emotional wellbeing. If you're looking to enhance or bring out the real you, I highly recommend the Spiegel Center. Chances are, they have just the procedure you've been looking for.

I’m two weeks post op from my first experience receiving cosmetic surgery from the very talented Dr Spiegel. I had jaw contouring, lower lid blepharoplasty, lip lift, and a chin revision, and am overjoyed with my results so far! Recovery was exactly as Dr Spiegel described and had gone quite smoothly. The staff at The Spiegel center are all wonderful, especially my patient care coordinator Uzma, who was not just helpful but caring and a delight to work with! The only hitch in my surgery was that I was delayed in arriving at the surgery center (in the same building as Dr Spiegel’s clinic - super convenient!) by an entire hour (totally my fault!). Instead of rescheduling me they expedited my pre-op care and everything continued without a problem. This took me from a virtual panic attack to massive relief. I cannot imagine other places & practitioners being so accommodating. These are just lovely people who do a great job and care about their patients. I will be returning for another procedure with Dr Spiegel soon with a feeling of total confidence. Update: since posting this I have had several more surgeries with Dr Spiegel - deep plane facelift, vocal feminization surgery - and each one has reinforced my opinion that Dr Spiegel and his team are the best in the business. As before, my healing was uncomplicated, the good doctor delivered exactly what he said he would, and I couldn't be happier with the results! Again, special mentions go out to my wonderful care coordinator, Uzma, and Juliana, the gender transition specialist on staff, who is a great resource. Thanks again, Spiegel Center!

Dr. Spiegel and his team are amazing. Carole guided me through appointments, prescriptions and arranging for post-op care. I was apprehensive undergoing major surgery, but Dr. Spiegel gave me results that exceeded my expectations. He knew what I needed. Dr. Spiegel is the best.

I was referred to Dr. Spiegel and his team by the plastic surgery clinic at Massachusetts General Hospital, because of my case’s complexity, and that is a very impressive endorsement, to start, considering all the excellent surgeons in the Boston area. I’m so relieved that I followed their advice. Dr. Spiegel and his team performed 4 aesthetic facial procedures on me in one surgery - revision cheek implants, a mid-face lift, revision rhinoplasty, and a lip lift. Not many surgeons could have successfully done all this, especially correcting/revising these old procedures done by another plastic surgeon. I was a tough case, and they produced such an excellent result! Somehow, I look like a younger, prettier version of myself, instead of like a totally different person, even with all of the difficulty involved. My patient coordinator, Uzma is WONDERFUL! She basically made this all happen, navigating her way through paperwork and scheduling difficulties, with apparent ease and grace. She navigated obstacles that could have prevented my procedure. I couldn’t have wished for a better coordinator than Unman Husain. She was amazing at calming my nerves, and even has so much experience in this field that she can also offer an aesthetic eye and give extraordinarily valuable opinions, as if she also has an M.D. credential after her name. Not only that, but it appears that this woman works 24/7! She was always available and responsive by text or cell, including weekends, and she dealt fantastically with my concerns without making me feel anything less than valued. Uzma is not only a superb professional, but she is a genuine person. Her caring is real. Uzma honestly cares about every aspect of a patient’s case. I hope to have one more complementary procedure to accentuate the beautiful outcome, and I wouldn’t consider going to any other surgeon besides the Spiegel team. Honestly, for those of you trying to decide among surgeons, please take my advice and let me have done the research for you. The Spiegel Center is where I would strongly recommend you trust. Don’t ever “bargain shop” with your appearance. Uzma Hussain was the blessing, in orchestration with their medical expertise. I can’t say enough positive things about my experience.

Dr. Spiegel recently performed a facelift, cheek implants, revision browlift, and a rhinoplasty on me. Initially I had some hesitation about some of these procedures; after rapidly losing over a hundred pounds, I knew I needed a facelift, but wasn't sure about the others. Whatever I had done, I had fairly specific requirements. For example, I didn't want radical changes to my nose, and if my brows were going to get raised, I didn't want them raised in a way that made me look too surprised, etc. After consulting with Dr. Spiegel, we came up with a plan of action, and post-surgery I was very pleasantly surprised to note that my requirements were met perfectly. The most impressive aspect of the work is definitely the facelift. I had requirements here, too: the women in my family tend to develop jowls, and mine had already started to appear due to my weight loss. They had to go! At the same time, I didn’t want to look artificial or radically different. What Dr. Spiegel achieved with my face is remarkable. He performed a extended deep plane facelift, the more complicated kind that achieves better results, and I believe he went above and beyond. I look ten years younger and am not even fully healed yet. The attention to detail is clearly there; I feel like I was given special treatment, that respected my requirements but in some ways improved upon them. Finally, The Spiegel Center’s office staff is superb. His patient coordinator, Carole, is especially caring and lovely.

Katey W., Google Reviews, 12/15/21

Dear Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel and Carol Werner: Thank you for your excellent work while performing surgery on me for my facelift. You are not only a magnificent doctor, you are an artist as well. Your hands are skilled as my incisions are not even noticeable. Thank you for taking care of my pain issue realizing that being on chronic pain meds(tramadol) I needed a pain med that would work to relieve my pain. I am grateful for the surgery you did. Also, I was very nervous about having surgery and Carol did a fantastic job describing what would happen before, during, and after the surgery. The information she provided and her constant staying in touch with me and addressing my questions and issues with pain and recovery helped me to move forward more positively in my recovery. She was my rock in my recovery and always available during and off work to speak to me! She is an excellent patient advocate and caring on a personal level. Thank you to all your lovely staff as well. Always so pleasant, outgoing and personable.

I highly recommend Dr. Spiegel and his staff for any plastic surgery procedures. I went to The Spiegel Center for a facelift and upper eyelid lift and am extremely happy with my results. Dr. Spiegel is the best at his craft and I knew I was in great hands after the initial consult. His staff is phenomenal and my Patient Care Coordinator, Eleanor was fantastic. She is responsive, knowledgeable and made sure my experience was seamless.

Slocsey, RealSelf, 6/21/21

I felt well cared for and safe and comfortable. I have had 3 procedures over the course of 1 yr, including a facelift and have been very satisfied all through. I feel much younger than my chronological age. Surgical scars look excellent, especially at the nose, and sides of my face. All the staff are just angels!

Philosophical315653, RealSelf, 12/20/19

I searched two years for a plastic surgeon. The name of Dr. Spiegel kept coming up as being a "true artist". He took such time explaining how HE saw my face and what he would recommend for my procedure. Our mutual goal was to look like myself, only several years younger. It is a journey which requires patience and Dr. Spiegel and his staff were always available for reassurance and to tell me it would all be perfect in time. It has only been two months and I am already thrilled with my results. My face, neck and lip lift and lower bleh were exactly what I needed and so glad I trusted his trained eye and acumen

myfitbit, RealSelf, 2/11/17

Whenever I looked in the mirror or at a photograph of myself, i saw my mother’s face, with her deep-set wrinkles, her drooping jowls, and her waddle. It made me feel very old. Earlier in the year, I had a bleph for visual improvement, which brightened my face, but the mirror told its tale. I asked by ophthalmological plastic surgeon for a recommendation for a surgeon for a face lift. He offered Dr. Spiegel’s name, and I thank him for that. Advanced Facial Aesthetics, Dr. Spiegel’s organization, has a warm and welcoming culture. I instantly felt like I was part of the family. Carol Werther, my patient coordinator and main contact, was friendly and efficient and a great communicator. The entire staff knew what was happening and was able to fill in for each other. Their teamwork was excellent. In the initial meeting, Dr. Spiegel was professional and compassionate: he inspired confidence. He instantly evaluated what was needed and engaged me in the options. The surgical process went according to plan. While recovery was a bit uncomfortable, my bruising and swelling were minimal and I recovered rapidly. In fact, I felt comfortable enough in my looks to go out “in public” within a week and half. The results of the face lift are considerably beyond my expectations. Some people have said that I look 20 years younger! (The After pictures were taken only a week after surgery. The swelling has further subsided.)

Neck Lift

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.

Bill B., Google, 12/6/23

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.

Son of Original Ted, Google, 9/25/23

So I have a somewhat unique concern with my chin being the biggest issue. I've always had a bit of neck fat even at my thinnest (bmi 20-23) and then I got a genioplasty to make my chin thinner and that just left even more excess skin and fat. I've had kybella and lost weight but no matter what the double chin remains. I've spoken with the top doctors and even some very well known ones here on RS and all have said that I basically need skin/tissue removal via external scar on my chin because I had the bone shaved down. However, no doctor was willing to do it because of the under chin scar. I said I scar well and was willing to take the risk but still they said no. I met with my new Dr and was so happy he agreed with me right away and knew exactly what I was talking about. The price was very high and tbh I was shocked but I am happy with the results.

Random72, RealSelf, 1/2/23

Dr. Spiegel and his staff explained the procedure clearly; they were friendly, supportive, and reassuring. The surgery was done at a top-rated hospital near my home. The expense and short-term discomfort were absolutely worth it. The loose skin on my neck has been tightened, and I look like myself again. My confidence and my spirits have been given a boost. Very glad I decided to have the work done!

Lip Lift

After searching for a Plastic Surgeon to do a lip lift, I chose Dr Jeffrey Spiegel at The Spiegel Center. From the virtual consultation to then speaking to Carole, the patient Coordinator I was completely committed to the surgery. I am thrilled with my results and highly recommend the Spiegel Center.

My lip lift turned out lovely. Not too much, just a nice subtle lift so that now my upper lip looks fuller and more youthful. Important since I am 68 years old!​ I would highly recommend Dr. Spiegel and his skill and expertise. As well as Carole, his patient coordinator. Not only was she professional, she was also very kind and caring.

Dr. Spiegel is excellent. The results of my lip lift were everything that I hoped for. His facility is beautiful, and his staff were all wonderful, too. Dr. Spiegel is known for lip lifts which is why I chose him for my procedure. Highly recommend.

K.C., RateMD, 9/28/23

Dr. Jeffery Spiegel is an exceptional plastic surgeon in Newton, MA, who specializes in gender affirming care for Trans Women.​ From the moment I stepped foot into his office, I felt safe and comfortable. Dr. Spiegel and his staff have always treated me with the utmost respect and made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. This is especially important when undergoing such personal and transformative procedures.​ I have had facial feminization surgery, a lip lift, and a lip fat grafting procedure with Dr. Spiegel, and I couldn't be happier with the outcomes. He took the time to listen to my concerns and goals, and he made sure to understand the parts of my face that caused dysphoria. I highly recommend bringing pictures of yourself to help identify these areas and also bringing in a picture of your desired look. Dr. Spiegel truly cares about making you the happiest version of yourself.​ One thing that sets Dr. Spiegel apart is his ability to listen. He genuinely listens to his patients and takes their desires and expectations into account. Throughout my journey, I have seen Dr. Spiegel in 2019, 2022, and 2023, and each time he has been attentive, understanding, and supportive. His assistant, Carole, has also been incredibly helpful and a pleasure to work with.​ Dr. Spiegel's expertise and experience are evident in his clear answers to any questions I had. He provided guidance based on what has proven successful with his previous patients, and I felt confident in the decisions we made together. Ultimately, the final decisions were always mine to make, giving me a sense of control and ownership over my own care.​ The results of my surgeries have exceeded my expectations, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. Dr. Jeffery Spiegel is an outstanding plastic surgeon who specializes in gender affirming care for Trans Women. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking these procedures. You will feel safe, comfortable, and supported throughout the entire process, and the results will be truly transformative.

Uzma is GOLD! She goes above and beyond to explain all the details of the procedures with such compassion and care. Her kindness radiates and makes you feel so comfortable. She is so extremely knowledgeable about all procedures and delivers her explanations in a kind and comfortable manner.

Had subnasal lip lift with Dr. Spiegel at age 39. He is very knowledgeable and patient when it comes to discussing goals and surgical expectations. End result is very subtle but very powerful. I look refreshed with more balanced facial features and am very happy with the result. My sisters told me that they see a difference but if i had not told them anything would have assumed i did something with makeup and 100% would never have identified any surgical site on the face.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Dr. Spiegel and his talented staff, and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience. From the moment I walked into their office, their friendly staff welcomed and cared for me. Dr. Spiegel was warm and approachable, listening to my concerns and thoroughly explaining the procedure at all stages of the process.​ Dr. Spiegel and his team went above and beyond to ensure I was comfortable. Their attention to detail was truly impressive, and I could tell that they were dedicated to achieving the best possible results for me.​ Thanks to their skill and expertise, I am thrilled with the outcome of my procedure. Dr. Spiegel's work was flawless, my recovery was very quick, and I feel more confident and comfortable than ever before. I would highly recommend Dr. Spiegel to anyone considering a procedure. He and his team are truly the best of the best, and I am so grateful for their exceptional care and expertise.

I just wanted to say, it was such an amazing experience. I love my new lips :) even better than I imagined.​ I’m very grateful to Dr. Spiegel and I am ​so glad I picked him as my d​o​ctor he is so kind and such a delightful person. He listened to my concerns and provided what I expected.​ I have ​nothing but gratitude in my heart for making everything so easy ​because the idea of “Li​pLift”was a very stressful decision/process for me to go through.​ And of-course am so thankful that UZMA (coordinator) who helped me so much with the scheduling and was so kind to me.

Brow Lift

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!

freckleboss51, RealSelf, 2/10/24

Dr. Tower is truly an artist and he took the time to customize exactly what would best benefit me. His nature/personality immediately immediately put me as 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 whom had an extensive background, experience and certifications, etc. - which Dr. Towers has exceptionally built over his career. Also, I 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!

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.

Forceful811150, RealSelf, 10/25/23

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 best! I’ll be in touch for future needs.

dfwilson, RealSelf, 10/18/23

Dr.Spiegel and his team are wonderful. From the start, Carole my patient care coordinator was very diligent and helped me with all the information regarding the procedure. I had my first pre-op consultation via facetime with Dr.Spiegel. His compassion, dedication, and experience put me at ease from the beginning. My procedure was brow bone reduction/Forehead Contouring. I absolutely love the results and couldn’t be happier. He is truly a master at this art. Thank you so much to Dr. Spiegel and his great Team.

user0022, RealSelf, 3/19/20

I has a forehead reconstruction with brow lift and trachea shave done with Dr. Spiegel on March 2nd 2018 at Mount Auburn Hospital. I came all the way from Korea to see Dr. Spiegel because Korean surgeons can’t perform the type 3 forehead reconstruction I desperately needed. Not only did both procedures go perfectly, my experience at Mount Auburn Hospital was absolutely amazing. He performed the trachea shave in a very safe manner, and I have experienced no negative changes in voice what so ever. Dr. Spiegel performed the brow lift slightly differently for me and the result suits my Asian face perfectly. He also fixed the minor ptosis in my right brow. Also what amazes me is the incision for my forehead reconstruction was closed up so carefully that after one week I can barely see the actual scar line except the scabs around it. As it turned out Dr. Spiegel was surprised too, because he said most patients aren’t nearly as careful as me after the procedure and always stress the surgery spot and stretch out the scar tissue early in the recovery process. Not only was the staff at Mount Auburn Hospital super friendly, I was offered a single room with a beautiful view of the river. My first night was absolutely painless, and my swelling was minimal. Also, the paient coordinator Katie at Dr. Spiegel’s office is the best! She was always responding to emails promptly, and she helped me so much with billing and scheduling the surgery. I messed up the payment because I didn’t read the instructions carefully but Katie figured everything out and dispersed the payment for me. Thank you so much!! Overall, I am very impressed by Dr. Spiegel and his team. I’ll definitely come back if I need anything else in the future, thank you thank you!

As a practicing nurse for 30+ years I have worked with many surgeons in a number of hospitals and did my research before choosing Dr. Spiegel. He performed a brow lift and lower blepharoplasty and took that tired appearance away beautifully. He is a highly skilled surgeon and has an uncommonly warm bedside manner. His office staff, the surgical fellow who assisted him and the OR staff at Boston Medical Center were all tremendously professional as well. I haven't looked this rested years! As a healthcare professional I would recommend Dr. Spiegel to anyone to include my friends, family and colleagues. Thanks so much, Jennifer

Jennifer, Rate MDs, 9/11/15

Although I'm only 35 and didn't have saggy brows quite yet, I felt as though an endoscopic brow lift might be useful in opening up my face and giving me a more refreshed appearance overall. (Plus, who doesn't want the look of beautifully arched brows?!) I returned to Dr. Spiegel after he successfully performed a lip lift on me in 2010, and explained to him that I wanted something conservative and natural - nothing too pulled or tight looking. This is where Dr. Spiegel excels - he listens, observes and is genuinely passionate about his line of work. He assured me the the lift would be exactly what I wanted, so I booked the surgery and headed to Boston Medical Center a week later. Like any normal person undergoing appearance-altering surgery, I was certainly nervous and apprehensive. Dr. Spiegel visited me in my room before I was wheeled into the OR, and took the time to review the procedure and once again reiterate that I wasn't going to look too pulled or stretched. The procedure took approximately one hour and truth be told, the pain upon waking up wasn't bad at all. There was a tightness (similar feeling to your hair being in too tight of a ponytail), but otherwise, nothing too awful. I had bruising for about a week and a half after, and now that has subsided as well. I am now almost 3 weeks post op, and feel like a million bucks. Dr. Spiegel promised me I would look beautiful, refreshed and more alert, and he certainly delivered. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner! Thank you again to Dr. Spiegel, Andrew and Katie - you sure know how to make a girl feel gorgeous!

Eye Lift (Blepharoplasty)

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.

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!

I wouldn’t trust my eyes to anyone but Dr. Spiegel! He is a truly gifted surgeon and knows exactly what to do to give you the BEST results! I recently had a lower Blepharoplasty, Morpheus8 and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light done at The Spiegel Center in Newton, Ma. Dr. Spiegel and his fellow, Dr. Vandenberg performed the procedures in the office under local anesthesia and I felt no pain from the surgery! My results are amazing! My under eye bags, wrinkles and crepey skin are GONE and my skin is glowing from the Morpheus8 and IPL. Fine lines, freckles, age spots and wrinkles have disappeared and continue to as collagen and elastin keeps producing: making my skin tighter. It was the greatest experience. My surgical coordinator Uzma Husain arranged everything from scheduling to payment to aftercare. She was so supportive and followed up with me several times post operatively. It was a such a pleasure to work with her! She is so encouraging and very organized and makes you feel so good. I am so happy with the results I would recommend this to anyone who is bothered by eye bags, wrinkles, age spots, enlarged pores, redness etc. My overall experience was A++++++ 10 stars! The staff is so caring and want you to have a relaxing and stress free experience. Uzma, Dr. Spiegel and Dr. Vandenberg went above and beyond to make me feel good about myself and I'm so grateful for their expertise and wonderful 'bedside' manner! I can't wait to do Morpheus8 again! What a difference it makes for such a short (and for me, pain free) procedure! I highly recommend booking a consultation as soon as possible! Thank you all for giving me my confidence back!

From my first contact with the office, Uzma Husain, the patient coordinator answered all of my questions and made the whole process very smooth. She is a kind and patient person and it was a great pleasure to work with her. I must also add that during this Covid-19 crisis, their office maintains the highest level of safety precautions. I highly recommend the Spiegel Center!

Dr. Spiegel performed lower eyelid surgery on me. He did an incredible job on the procedure and the healing process was virtually painless. In addition to that, Dr. Spiegel and his staff were always, friendly, helpful and listened carefully to my comments and concerns. There's a reason why he is a specialist. Picking the right Doctor to perform a procedure is very important. You won't go wrong if you select Dr. Spiegel to perform your procedure.

Immediate results after BodyTite on stomach & flanks & buccal fat removal When I went to the Spiegel Center I was unsure about going through with the procedures I had which included buccal fat removal as well as bodytite on my stomach and flanks.

I had small cheek implants put in as well as a hair transplant. Everything went smoothly. I am still healing up and the results have yet to really be determined. Very happy so far though; definitely recommend them.

Fabio R., Google Reviews, 6/16/22

I'm so happy I decided to go with Dr. Spiegel for my surgery! I had a video session with him several months before where we discussed which procedures I wanted. Dr. Spiegel agreed that the procedures I'd mentioned would help obtain my goal and also suggested cheek implants, which I was initially on the fence about but now I love them! Carole and the rest of the staff were SO helpful with making sure the paperwork was in order and everything went off without a hitch. Everyone I interacted with from Dr. Spiegel to the anesthesiologists were friendly, helpful, comforting, respectful, understanding, and knowledgable. Most importantly however, Dr. Spiegel's work has drastically impacted my life. It's an almost indescribable feeling finally being able to see myself in the mirror when I wake up, and has done so much for my mentality. I can not thank him and his staff enough.

Chin Augmentation

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!

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.

Otoplasty

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.

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's 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.

Earlobe Repair

This was my first time having any type of surgery done. I got my stretched ears reversed. Couldn’t have possibly gone more smooth! Very quick, professional, and friendly! :)

Alexis S., Google Reviews, 8/4/23

Dr. Spiegel and his staff were nothing short of amazing. I had two enormous keloids on the bottom of both my ear lobes. My self confidence was at an all time low and I was not feeling like a person who could greet the world. Today I have to say I feel quite opposite. My results couldn’t be have been any better. I look and feel amazing and I finally feel like I’m being seen the way I want to be seen. Thank you Dr. Spiegel and your team!

My surgery was very quick, and of course completely painless. Removing the stitches took less than 20 minutes, too. Dr. Spiegel was fantastic! He made me feel comfortable in the office and was very pleasant to be around. My surgery was very quick, and of course completely painless. Removing the stitches took less than 20 minutes, too. It was nice to hear him explaining what he was doing throughout as well. 10/10, I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to get work done.

I had an ear lobe revision surgery and micro liposuction of fat pockets on my cheeks couple of weeks ago. The entire experience from consultation thru aftercare has been nothing short of exceptional. Dr Spiegel patiently took the time to listen to my concerns, and outlined all of the available options clearly, answering all of my questions till i was fully satisfied. The surgery itself was a breeze: I didn't need any sedation, it was done in the doctor's office. He operated smoothly as he explained step by step everything that was taking place... he also has a great sense of humor - telling me funny medical jokes, which really helped put me at ease throughout the entire operation. What really struck me most, was his readiness to help me after the surgery. I had a tiny stitch issue and he went above and beyond to see me and fix the problem, without making a big deal of it, though I knew he was very busy. I am still healing, but i can already see the results and i am thrilled. Dr. Spiegel is an artist. I have had terrible experience with my previous surgeon who abandoned me after surgery and wasn't willing to take any responsibilities for his poor outcome. Dr Spiegel restored my faith. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone

Neck Liposuction

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.

Son of O., Yelp, 9/25/23

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!

Facial Feminization Reviews

Facial Feminization

I am extremely grateful to Dr. Spiegel, Carole, Dr. H, and everyone at this practice. From the girls at the front desk, to the folks in the operating room, I was treated with nothing but respect and kindness. Carole helped me so much along the way with preparing for my surgery day and even with care afterwards. Carole has been so incredibly helpful and reassuring. I APPRECIATE you so much, Carole! Dr. Spiegel is incredible. He has great bedside manner and is actually really funny. He's always cracking jokes and doing what he can to make his patients smile. He empathetically listens to concerns and addresses them with care. I am so grateful and honored that this is the man I chose to perform my FFS procedures. Also, the 10% off for military appreciation is huge and was unexpected. Thank you for all that you do, Dr. Spiegel! To the surgery center staff, I can't remember everyone's names but a few stuck out (Michelle / Ellen), thanks so much for keeping me comfortable before and during surgery. Michelle was my nurse who brought a warm blanket and equally warm conversation. Ellen was the anesthesiologist and very kind. I appreciate each of you that had a hand in my FFS procedures. Thank you!

RealSelf, Tough636817, 6/2/24

I have had two separate FFS surgeries at the siegel center. First one being a rhinoplasty and cheek augmentation in 2021, and mandible/chin and forehead contouring in November 2023. My experience could not have been better. My dysphoria about my face is alleviated, and I feel truly beautiful and happy thanks to Dr. Spiegel. All four of the procedures I had done to my face were done perfectly, and essentially made me look like how I would look if I hadn't gone through male puberty or had my nose broken at all. And my face looks completely natural, like I hadn't even had surgery.​ The staff at the Spiegel Center is wonderful. Especially Uzma who truly cares about her clients. She is so kind, and all of the nurses and doctors I interacted with were as well. I want to thank Dr Spiegel, Uzma, and all of the staff that made me feel safe and comfortable the entire time :) and changed my life. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.

Google, Mikaela V., 1/26/24

I had an amazing experience with the Spiegel Center, particularly with my patient coordinator, Uzma. She and all the staff were very trans-competent, affirming, and incredibly helpful! By the way, for anyone trans reading this, get yourself on Harvard Pilgrim insurance; they're great at covering gender-affirming procedures!

Google, Anna Marie L., 1/24/24

Dr. Spiegel was excellent as expected. A music lover just like me and we hit it off very well. What surprised me was how great of a coordinator Uzma Husain was. She went out of her way to make sure that I was okay from my injury and that I was safe and stable because I was very distraught. I needed someone to do that for me because I felt like the other places I was contacting weren't providing that essential service. She is my friend now and I am forever grateful for what she did for me. She even stayed up late to answer some of my questions when I was very very nervous and upset about what had happened. You will love the experience of having her as your coordinator. I can say that with 100% certainty. Also Juliana Wall the transition coordinator for the transgender patients is super super phenomenal as well her and uzma make a great team and I was so well cared for at the Spiegel center I was truly amazed.

Yelp, Emma N., 12/13/23

I had FFS back in February with Dr. Speigel and his demeanor and attention to detail was nothing short of professional, the same going for Uzma, the patient coordinator. She made me feel so at ease and reassured during this obviously tough-to-navigate event. I’m very thankful for the whole office (even the front desk was always a pleasure to encounter) for making the process figuratively and literally as painless as possible.

Google, Taylor T., 12/10/23

Dr. Spiegel is a world class professional. I’m in my late 30s and had VFS with him in 2022 and FFS 10 weeks ago and have gotten past all of my healing. I had mandible and forehead contouring (with face lift), lip, and cheek augmentation. Everything is going as planned! My forehead was immediately smoother and jaw still has minor swelling as expected but I can’t stop looking at my face and thinking “I’m so cute!” The cool part is that when you get mandible contouring you get to see your results settle over time just like on the website pictures.

RealSelf,spicymage, 12/3/23

The person I see in the mirror smiles back a lot more than she used to after having my Facial Feminization Surgery with Dr. Spiegel. I have had an incredible experience with him and his team from the very first consultation to my most previous post-op visit. I always felt cared for and that my best interest was at heart. Dr. Spiegel is incredibly knowledgeable and does a wonderful job explaining every part of his process. My care coordinator Carole was beyond helpful and answered every question I could come up with. By the time my surgery day rolled around, I felt confident that I had all of the tools I would need to get through the recovery process as gracefully as possible. I couldn’t be happier with the results of my surgery and I would highly recommend Dr. Spiegel and his team.

RealSelf,PassionFruitTea, 11/26/23

I can't emphasize enough how grateful I am for the care and support I've received at the Dr. Spiegel Center for Advanced Facial Aesthetics. As a patient from New Orleans, Louisiana, I've had my fair share of skepticism and apprehension when it comes to trusting doctors and medical facilities. However, this office has truly stood out in every aspect, making it an exceptional experience. From the moment I walked in, I was struck by the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the office. The staff members are not only professional but also incredibly friendly and approachable. It's clear that they genuinely care about their patients' well-being, which immediately put me at ease. Dr. Spiegel himself is a true expert in his field. His knowledge and expertise in facial aesthetics are unmatched. He took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explained the procedures and options available to me. What sets him apart is his commitment to achieving natural and personalized results. He's not in the business of one-size-fits-all solutions; rather, he tailors his approach to each patient's unique needs. Throughout my treatment, I felt like more than just a patient; I felt like a valued individual. The team at the Dr. Spiegel Center for Advanced Facial Aesthetics has gone above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable, well-informed, and happy with the results. Their dedication and attention to detail are truly commendable. In terms of trustworthiness, this office has been a breath of fresh air. They've not only met but exceeded my expectations. I've never felt pressured into any procedure, and every step of the process was transparent and honest. I can confidently say that I've found a medical team I can trust without reservation. In summary, I highly recommend the Dr. Spiegel Center for Advanced Facial Aesthetics to anyone seeking top-notch care and results in the realm of facial aesthetics. They have given me care and genuine help that words can't adequately describe. My experience with this office has been nothing short of extraordinary, and I'm truly thankful for the positive impact they've had on my life.

Secret Love, RealSelf, 10/26/23

I first came to The Spiegel Center for Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) in 2019. After a positive experience, I returned two times — first, for a lip lift in 2022, and most recently this past summer for a tracheal shave. Dr. Spiegel listened to my needs and made sure I felt comfortable throughout all three experiences. Aside from Dr. Spiegel, the true highlight for me has been my Patient Care Coordinator, Carole Werner. She is an absolute gem and makes you feel so welcomed (and remembers the little details … always asks how my grandmother is doing, etc). My experiences at The Spiegel Center have been positive and I’m very happy with all three surgical results! 💎

Casey L., Google, 10/7/23

I went to The Spiegel Center in 2020 for a full round of FFS. I was extremely nervous going into it as it was a major procedure that required a lot of paperwork and travel, but working with Carole and the staff at Spiegel Center, everything went so smoothly and efficiently it was almost like auto-pilot. The center itself is clean and easily located with lots of local housing and airbnbs, which made it easy to stay around for my return visits. The area itself is very cute with lots of culture and things to see and do leading up to the day. I was amazed at how clean and comfortable the center itself was and the Staff really helped me feel at ease throughout the entire process. I had heard rumors that Dr. Spiegel was one of the go-tos for FFS procedures. He had helped a friend of mine with her FFS and she was beautiful and recommended him, so I reached out and he got back to me in great timing for a free consultation. Having no experience of my own in the selection of which directions to go with surgically, I relied on careful advice from my consult with him to get the best look possible. I gave Dr. Spiegel full control to use his expertise and come up with a solid plan and direction for me and I was so happy with the results! My jawline, hairline, and new nose have completely changed my life. My side profile went from horrendous to very feminine, and the entire structure of my face is nearly indistinguishable from the blatant male markers I was cursed with prior. I kept in touch with Spiegel and his staff all throughout my recovery (they even sent me roses which was a sweet gesture) Any healing concerns or questions were quickly answered with respect and comfort and I always felt like they were guiding my softly along with a sort of expertise not often found in the modern medical establishment. Prior to my surgery with Dr. Spiegel I had been transitioning to female since 2009 but I never passed as flawlessly in my entire lifetime as I do now. It's changed the way I interact with everyone around me and boosted my confidence unlocking a new life I never thought possible before. This may seem like a sort of hammy review, but I just wanted to get it out there that Dr. Spiegel is amazing and I highly recommend him for FFS and trans related procedures. Thanks to the Spiegel team for everything!

Dr. Jeffery Spiegel is an exceptional plastic surgeon in Newton, MA, who specializes in gender affirming care for Trans Women.​ From the moment I stepped foot into his office, I felt safe and comfortable. Dr. Spiegel and his staff have always treated me with the utmost respect and made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. This is especially important when undergoing such personal and transformative procedures.​ I have had facial feminization surgery, a lip lift, and a lip fat grafting procedure with Dr. Spiegel, and I couldn't be happier with the outcomes. He took the time to listen to my concerns and goals, and he made sure to understand the parts of my face that caused dysphoria. I highly recommend bringing pictures of yourself to help identify these areas and also bringing in a picture of your desired look. Dr. Spiegel truly cares about making you the happiest version of yourself.​ One thing that sets Dr. Spiegel apart is his ability to listen. He genuinely listens to his patients and takes their desires and expectations into account. Throughout my journey, I have seen Dr. Spiegel in 2019, 2022, and 2023, and each time he has been attentive, understanding, and supportive. His assistant, Carole, has also been incredibly helpful and a pleasure to work with.​ Dr. Spiegel's expertise and experience are evident in his clear answers to any questions I had. He provided guidance based on what has proven successful with his previous patients, and I felt confident in the decisions we made together. Ultimately, the final decisions were always mine to make, giving me a sense of control and ownership over my own care.​ The results of my surgeries have exceeded my expectations, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome.

You will feel safe, comfortable, and supported throughout the entire process, and the results will be truly transformative.

Phenomenal5983, RealSelf, 8/10/23

The entire staff here has been just amazing. From the first consultation until my latest (but certainly not last) procedure, I've been treated with respect, kindness, and the utmost care. Dr. Spiegel knew exactly what my facial feminization surgery should entail, and never pressured me for anything more than what was necessary. He put me at ease, and his expertise gave me the features I've been dreaming of. Dr. Shektman's breast augmentation also turned out perfect. I love my new figure! Dr. Onir is amazing - she provided excellent care when I went in for botox, and I'll be returning for filler very soon. Eleanor (my patient coordinator) and the rest of the staff have been incredible. Whether it's answering my endless questions, working around my scheduling, or just reassurance, the staff here has provided excellent service and care. I'll be doing all my future procedures here, without a doubt. EDIT: 6 Months later: It's been six months, and the results continue to get better and better! Everything has healed wonderfully, and I was almost shocked when seeing an older picture of myself the other day. I feel great - all of the pain and numbness have totally subsided, and the transformation continually blows me away. I would recommend anyone considering Facial Feminization Surgery to consult with Dr. Spiegel. EDIT: 3 years later: I'm still very happy with the results, and happily continue to be a regular client with any new and maintenance aesthetic needs!

I just can't stop going back!!! So, In addition to my first pleasurable outcomes last year (voice feminization surgery, breast augmentation, tracheal shave), I just had the following procedures with Dr. Spiegel: April: FFS(Facial feminization Surgery); June: Deep Plane Facelift. I'm still a bit swollen (totally expected), but as the swelling resides, I'm enjoying quite the slow unwrapping of a present. My face looks and feels amazing. I can't thank Dr. Spiegel and the staff at the Spiegel Center enough for the monumental effect my experiences at the Spiegel Center have had on my appearance and emotional wellbeing. If you're looking to enhance or bring out the real you, I highly recommend the Spiegel Center. Chances are, they have just the procedure you've been looking for.

Exceptional Facial Aesthetics Experience with Dr. Spiegel! Updated Review (previous review written for FFS, also 5 star). I recently had the privilege of visiting Dr. Spiegel for facial aesthetics treatments (3rd Morpheus 8 treatment), and I cannot express enough how impressed I am with his expertise and care. As someone who has previously tried local options in North Carolina, I can confidently say that Dr. Spiegel stands head and shoulders above the rest. From the moment I stepped into his clinic, I was greeted by a warm and professional staff who made me feel at ease (thank you Faith, and the other kind receptionist/assistant…I forgot her name😔). Of course Carole, my Client Care Coordinator, is always available for questions, concerns, or entertaining my rambling about Boston traffic. Dr. Spiegel himself exudes a remarkable level of knowledge and skill, leaving no doubt in my mind that I was in the hands of a true expert. His commitment to understanding my unique facial concerns and desired outcomes was evident throughout our discussions. What truly sets Dr. Spiegel apart is his ability to enhance facial tone and features with incredible precision and artistry. His treatments go beyond surface-level improvements, delving into the realm of transformative results. The remarkable improvements I have witnessed in my own skin are a testament to his exceptional talent. Not only did Dr. Spiegel provide outstanding results, but he also prioritized my comfort and well-being throughout the process. His approachable demeanor and genuine concern for his patients foster a trusting and supportive environment, making every visit a positive experience. It's worth noting that despite having local options for facial treatments, I willingly choose to travel to see Dr. Spiegel because he is the only one I trust with my skin. His unwavering dedication to staying at the forefront of facial aesthetics ensures that he consistently delivers the highest quality of care and the latest techniques. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Spiegel to anyone seeking top-tier facial aesthetics treatments. His expertise, artistry, and commitment to patient satisfaction are unmatched. If you're looking for remarkable results and a truly transformative experience, Dr. Spiegel is the professional you can trust with your skin and facial features.

My experience with Dr Spiegel was excellent all the way - from initial consultation to the day of surgery and beyond. Of course, the most important thing is results - and I LOVE the results too - though with just 3 months after FFS, my jaw line is still improving. One HUGE advantage of Dr Spiegel is that he can combine several FFS corrections into one surgery (as I understood, he was even The First One to do it) - and with my transition being a late one, time is extremely important to me, so this ability is very important to me (for me it was forehead with scalp moving and brow lift, rhinoplasty, jaw, blepharoplasty, lip lift, and cheek implant, not to mention morpheus8 and faceted). His team is excellent too - I especially want to mention everybody working in Newton Surgery, and coordinator Eleanor. Overall, the experience was great - and more importantly, brought me MUCH closer to my perfect-transition goal.

Sherrylgn, RealSelf, 7/2/23

I recently had the incredible opportunity to undergo facial feminization surgery (FFS) with the renowned Dr. Spiegel on December 1, 2022, and I couldn't be happier with the entire experience. From start to finish, my journey with Dr. Spiegel and his exceptional team has been nothing short of amazing.​ First and foremost, let me express my deep appreciation for Carole, my client care coordinator. Carole's unwavering support, kindness, and expertise made me feel cared for every step of the way. She guided me through the process, addressing all my concerns and ensuring I felt comfortable and confident in my decision. Carole's dedication to patient care is truly remarkable. The consultation with Dr. Spiegel was a true revelation. His profound understanding of facial feminization and his ability to listen attentively to my unique needs and desires reassured me that I had made the right choice. Dr. Spiegel's professionalism and compassionate approach instilled a sense of trust, and I knew I was in capable hands.​ When it comes to the surgery itself, fantastic is an understatement. Dr. Spiegel's expertise and artistic precision were evident in every aspect of the procedure. The results exceeded my expectations, reflecting the harmonious blend of my personal vision and Dr. Spiegel's exceptional surgical skill. His attention to detail is unparalleled, ensuring that every modification contributed to enhancing my natural beauty.​ Recovery, as expected, is a crucial phase following any surgical procedure. Dr. Spiegel's comprehensive care plan, along with his team's support, made this period as comfortable as possible. They provided me with detailed instructions, answered my questions promptly, and offered compassionate guidance throughout my healing journey.​ And here I am, writing this review—a testament to the life-changing transformation I have experienced. Dr. Spiegel's expertise, along with his genuine commitment to improving the lives of transgender individuals, is truly remarkable. The confidence and joy I feel today are beyond words, and I owe it all to Dr. Spiegel's skillful hands and compassionate heart. For anyone considering transgender facial surgery, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Spiegel. His unparalleled expertise, compassionate approach, and commitment to empowering transgender individuals make him an outstanding choice. Trust in his expertise, and you too can embark on a journey towards self-affirmation and a newfound sense of confidence.​ Thank you, Dr. Spiegel, Carole, and the entire team for this life-changing experience. You have not only transformed my appearance but also helped me embrace my true identity.

J.J.C., RealSelf, 6/19/23

I almost don’t know where to start in describing my happiness with Dr. Spiegel and his amazing staff. My entire FFS experience was terrific. Every office visit starts with a friendly feeling of belonging. They were always on time​,​ I was never left waiting. Dr Spiegel met with me a number of times before my surgery. He never seemed rushed, and any concerns I had were put to rest with knowledgeable and reassuring explanations. I had much anxiety about a forehead scar, and almost didn’t have a scalp advancement until the process & expected results were understood, and I was confident with their professional advice.​ Carole, my care coordinator, was a delight to work with from start to finish and even after. It’s been 3 months since my surgery, and she still checks in on me from time to time. I have to admit I was more than a little nervous in the days and weeks before. It takes a tremendous amount of trust to undergo FFS, and for all of my fears or concerns Carole was there every time with her unflappable optimism. When I walked into Newton Surgery on the morning of my procedures I was never more calm and confident, and Carole was a big part of making that happen.​ I was new to the idea of having such serious procedures performed in an outpatient setting. I was surprised how much better it seemed than a hospital OR. The gravity and tension of a hospital setting was non-existent. The camaraderie and confidence seen in the OR staff that clearly work together regularly was very comforting. It was also easy to see that FFS procedures were a regular thing here and their interaction with me was exemplary.​ My results are fantastic. I had 7 major procedures plus C02 laser. There are no noticeable scars, and it doesn’t look like I had anything done except for being more feminine. I still look like myself.​ The CO2 laser was a bit much to deal with in my early recovery, but I’m glad I agreed to do it. I look and feel a bit younger. I don’t feel the need to use foundation that much anymore.​ I would recommend Dr. Spiegel and the Spiegel Center for anyone thinking of FFS. The way that everyone there cares along with the quality and professionalism are unique.

I got FFS with Dr. Spiegel's team (hairline advancement, brow contouring, cheek augmentation, lip lift / aug, rhinoplasty, and mandible contouring, and Facetite) about a month ago. I am IN LOVE with the results! Throughout it all, his team was very respectful, kind, communicative, and warm. Through this whole process, I wasn't misgendered once, which was wonderful. Dr. Spiegel is a true master and one of the leaders in FFS for trans women. You can't be in better hands. I also got breast augmentation with Dr. Shektman at the same time and am very happy with my results. One thing to note is that the procedure costs a ton of money. If I wasn't lucky enough to have compatible insurance, I would not have been able to afford the procedure (and I'm also a doctor!). I want to give special thanks to Uzma, my coordinator, who instantly responded to emails even on the weekend and was so helpful with working with insurance and coordinating my care. Plus, she is so stylish!! Thank you so much, Dr. Spiegel, Uzma, Shoilee, Juliana, and other staff at the Spiegel Center!

Spiegel is an absolutely amazing surgeon. His bedside manner is wonderful, his staff are amazing people, and his attention to detail and quality of his work is incredible. He is like a renaissance artist, only instead of painting a picture he makes beautiful faces instead. You definitely get what you pay for at this place. I'm still healing from my surgery so I'm going to have to check back later and edit this review, but I am already impressed with the initial results as my brow ridge that has bothered me for quite some time now is completely gone and that has helped alleviate some of my dysphoria. Transitioning from male to female is not a pleasant process, but I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to participate in this surgical phase of my journey.

Sydney L., RealSelf, 5/3/23

I've had two surgeries here, FFS and top surgery, as well as electrolysis. The staff and surgeons are top-notch. Post-surgery, Fabio was an amazing nurse, always available to answer any questions by text or voice for several days after surgery. Uzma was my surgical coordinator. She was, and continues to be, amazing. For electrolysis April was my coordinator. She was and continues to be, wonderful as well. The electrologist was also raising the bar. I can't say enough positive things about the staff, Dr. Spiegel, or his better half, Dr. O.

Rachel F., RealSelf, 5/3/23

I couldn't be more pleased with the experience and the result. Personality-wise, Dr. Spiegel is a nice, down-to-earth man. His patient coordinator Carole is lovely. She treated my wife and I more like good friends than patients. Initially, I only wanted a nose job but decided to get facial feminization after talking with Dr. Spiegel. I was extremely nervous - I wanted to continue to look like myself but feminine, which I thought was a tall order. The result? I got exactly what I wanted, just better than I could have imagined. My wife, co-workers and others have gushed over how I look. I'm happy with the outcome and no longer have to worry about passing. :) I would recommend Dr. Spiegel to anyone considering plastic surgery. Hopefully, I'll be able to have voice feminization with him in the not-so-distant future. I wouldn't consider going elsewhere.

Adrienne G., RealSelf, 4/27/23

I've visited frequently these past couple of years. Everyone here does fantastic work; Dr. Spiegel did my FFS; results showed within a month, and improved dramatically over the course of the next year. I saw him again recently for vocal feminization surgery because I am so confident in his work! I've visited Dr. Onir several times for Botox and fillers. She's SO kind and does a phenomenal job! She even gave me a couple tips on feminine facial mannerisms that I've gladly taken to heart. Dr. Shektman performed my top surgery, and some lipo, and I'm very satisfied with those results! Aisha has done my marathon electrolysis treatments. I can't say I love that process, but it is definitely worth it for its efficacy and the pain relief they use. They recently added Juliana, who is lovely and provides great support trans folks who are seeking treatment!! And I absolutely need to mention my patient care coordinator, Uzma. She's taken an acute interest in my care and I'm SO grateful to her for her advocacy and support; I would not have been able to figure this all out without her.

A.G., Google, 3/21/23

So excited with my results from my FFS with Dr. Spiegel! The Spiegel Center fought my insurance company and won, gave me loads of information and answered all my questions, and took great care of me during and after. They've even got a trans woman on staff to help navigate the process and provide emotional support. This is the face that I was always supposed to have, and I am thrilled to finally see myself in the mirror! Dr. Spiegel was definitely the right choice for me. Highly recommend.

From start to finish, EVERYTHING! was a finely tuned Custom experience. Dr. Spiegel and his entire team are dedicated to you throughout your entire journey. If you have questions, just ask, they have answers! The patient care coordinators have all the answers and if they don’t, they will. There’s just a million things to say and I could honestly write a book, but I’m going to simply say if you’re looking for a Dr, those are easy to find, but if you're looking for a truly skilled and talented medical surgeon then you need Dr. Spiegel. Thank you to the entire staff and I’ll be back soon!

I had FFS performed by Dr. Spiegel in the spring of 2022 and with about a year since it happened, could not be happier with the results and overall experience. The staff were enormously kind, respectful, and supportive of my anxieties about having my first medical surgery. Dr. Spiegel himself had exceptional bedside manners, and more importantly, the positive effect his work has had on my life is entirely unmeasurable! Thank you again!

I had FFS with Dr. Spiegel. This review and 5-star rating is for those procedures only, and about 9 months after the surgery. I had forehead and eyebrow shaping, nose job, trachea shave, and upper lip augmentation. The surgery went well, no complications, and I returned home the same day all bandaged up. The swelling was intense over the next few days and the nausea, especially on the first day was awful, but apparently that happens with nose jobs a lot, according to my friend at least. The first week took a lot of ice and laying around, but by the second week I started being able to walk around the neighborhood and be upright more often. By the end of the 2 weeks, most of the swelling had gone down, but the bruising around the eyes took another few weeks to go away. I could go out in public, albeit with makeup.​ ​Forehead/brow shaping​ results​: the slight brow ridges I had were taken down so that from the front you can't see the telltale ridges. It didn't change the shape of my eyebrows. The scalp was advanced a little bit, which helped with the appearance of the hair line. There was still a sizable forehead leftover, so I also decided to get a FUE hair transplant a few months later, but I think the scalp advancement did more honestly. Nose job: I had a wide bridge and a noticeable bump. The nose was slimmed and sloped and pointed upward a little. All in all, this may have been the most noticeable and gender affirming single surgery. There's a slight divot where he had to do some pretty major work on the bump, and I have a little bit of trouble with breathing through the left nostril. But all in all very worth it. Trachea shave: It went fine. it was brought down to a tiny bump. I'm fairly skinny, so the bump is still noticeable but the overall size was brought down.

Forehead Contouring

Thank God I found Dr. Spiegel at The Spiegel Center! I was born female but always felt my forehead made me look masculine, so I went to my plastic surgeon in New Jersey, and he referred me to Dr. Spiegel in Boston, Massachusetts; he said he was the best in forehead contouring! I quickly called their office and spoke to Carole. Words cannot explain how amazing she was. She explained everything and helped me complete the paperwork and prepare me for surgery. In addition, she gave me her cell phone number just in case I had any additional questions when she was not in the office. I did a FaceTime consultation with Dr. Spiegel, and I felt comfortable with him immediately. He thoroughly explained everything and made me feel like he was perfect for the job. Soon after, I scheduled an appointment for surgery. On the day of surgery, Carole ensured I had no problems traveling from Jersey to Boston and greeted me when I arrived. On the day of the surgery, the entire staff was outstanding from beginning to end. The first couple weeks after surgery was a little challenging, but pain medication helped me feel relaxed and comfortable. Whenever I felt an ache or pain that I wasn’t sure was normal, I contacted Dr. Spiegel directly. He listened carefully, asked me to send pictures, and assured me that everything was normal and to contact him again if necessary. Two months post op: I’m back in the office seeing Dr. Spiegel to make sure everything is healing well and looks good, and he explained that everything looked great! I’m healing fast. I was concerned because every now and then, I have a little sting and sharp throbbing in the forehead area and on top of my head. Dr. Spiegel explained that I wanted to feel the stinging because that means I’m still healing- all completely normal. I didn’t really need to travel back to Boston, but I worry a lot - mostly unnecessarily. But every time I worry, Dr. Spiegel listens, address my concerns and makes me feel better. I trust that if something was wrong, he would definitely tell me and make sure I get the attention I need. Dr. Spiegel is smart, caring and makes me laugh whenever I interact with him. He’s a great surgeon- just like my plastic surgeon back in New Jersey told me! My forehead looks very feminine now! I am very pleased with the results!

I have been looking forward to addressing my dysphoria for the last 20 years through FFS and I couldn’t be happier from start to finish with the Spiegel Center. In the process of starting my journey with FFS, I truly only wanted to have Dr. Spiegel as I believe his work speaks for itself as the best in the world - I was right to feel this way, as the results are beyond my expectations! I had completed forehead contouring, eyebrow lift, rhinoplasty & septoplasty, lift lip and augmentation, and mandible contouring - The results have made me feel like I finally see the person I’ve been my whole life. One thing that truly impressed me about my experience was the service that I received from start to finish. Eleanor was my first introduction and she was beyond helpful and empathetic with me as I had quite a few questions/follow-ups - love her! It’s amazing to see this business take the trans community/experience so seriously (something we rarely receive) by bringing in a transition specialist, Juliana. The power of having someone there to talk through their own experience was life changing. If you are a trans person looking for a team of experts who TRULY care, then I cannot express how important it is to consider Dr. Spiegel. I hope to stay in contact with the team and stop by every time I am in Boston. Many thanks to the people who changed my life along the way: Dr. Spiegel & fellow, Eleanor, Jess, Fabiano, Riley, & many more!

I had a great experience I recently had ffs with Dr Spiegel in Boston! I had a great experience. I will attach before and afters. What I had done: 1. Mandible contouring- the results are subtle but have had a significant impact. I feel like my face appears smaller and more feminine. I didn't experience much pain in my mandible, I did have to shave my face and that was very uncomfortable. It felt like I was plucking each hair. lol. I couldn't eat anything for probably 2 weeks but I did drink smoothies. I also mashed up noodles and had that but my daily intake was around 500 calories. I lost 20 pounds between surgery and home.... Im not mad about it! 2. Forehead- I went with forehead reconstruction and bc of my job as a nurse, I opted to have my incision placed behind the hairline. Unfortunately, I did end up losing a good grip of hair. After a few days of having my head wrapped, my hair got extremely tangled and there were two huge knots... I looked like princess Leia. one of the knots fell out while I was trying to get it out and the other one was removed with scissors. I am very appreciative of this surgery. I experienced more pain with this surgery. I read online that there would be minimal pain bc the area was supposed to be extremely numb. That wasn't my experience. only the right side of my head was numb but the left side was extremely tender and painful. Occasionally today I will feel some slight discomfort. Having the staples removed was fairly comfortable until the left side needed to be removed. Because the incision was in the hair, it was hard to see all of the staples and there were two that were missed. This happens sometimes. I just recommend that you feel through your hair to make sure that there aren't any staples left. I would 10/10 recommend Dr Spiegel for surgery. His work gave me the confidence to leave my job and get out into a different field. He is truly an artist.

The Best Decision I Ever Made! I cannot express enough how pleased I am with my experience with Dr. Spiegel. My coordinator, Carole, was an absolute gem. I had a forehead reduction and rhinoplasty. The results were absolutely amazing! I'm only two weeks after surgery, a lot of the swelling is down and my smooth forehead and smaller nose make me feel adorable and pretty in a way that I never thought possible. If you are thinking of getting surgery yourself, I cannot recommend Dr. Spiegel enough.

Megan W., RealSelf, 8/26/20

9 month post surgery update- I just had to come back and say after a basically full recovery I am over the moon about my results! I had some numbness in my scalp and certain areas that had been worked on but I'm very happy to say those have all had return of sensation, though if not it was a minor price I was willing to pay. Most importantly however, I can not express how incredible it is to really see myself in the mirror every day and be happy with what I see. My confidence has gotten so much better, there's so many days I don't even feel the need to put on makeup before I leave the house anymore

I had Facial Feminization Surgery performed by Dr. Spiegel because I heard he was the best in the world. I am only two months post-op but I am already in agreement with this! The cranioplasty or forehead reduction and rhinoplasty already look absolutely perfect. I am told it will take up to a year for the jaw and chin swelling to subside completely but I already see a huge improvement. The greatest aspect of Dr. Spiegel's work in my opinion is how natural, yet significant the feminization is. In other words I still look very much like "me" and people say that I look like a twin sister of my old self. Dr. Spiegel and his staff are very kind and respectful. The Doctor asked me which components of FFS that I prioritize before giving me his perspective. He was very, very welcoming and compassionate. My surgical coordinator was Carole Werner who was extremely sweet. She made everything incredibly easy on my part by filing my letters of recommendation, setting up consultations and delivering my surgery date. The rest of his staff were similarly respectful and kind. I recommend Dr. Spiegel 10 out of 10.

Selene F.,Google Reviews, 2/3/20

I had facial feminization surgery with Dr. Spiegel on November 15th. The results are everything I wanted and more. Eleanor Partee was my care coordinator and was absolutely wonderful to work with. If I ever get anything else done, I will go to Dr. Spiegel without question. I had forehead contouring with scalp advancement and brow lift, rhinoplasty, lip lift with augmentation, mandible contouring and liposuction in the neck and chin. I really couldn't be happier with the results. It's incredibly empowering to look in the mirror and finally be able to see the her.

D. C., Google Reviews, 12/10/19

I has a forehead reconstruction with brow lift and trachea shave done with Dr. Spiegel on March 2nd 2018 at Mount Auburn Hospital. I came all the way from Korea to see Dr. Spiegel because Korean surgeons can’t perform the type 3 forehead reconstruction I desperately needed. Not only did both procedures go perfectly, my experience at Mount Auburn Hospital was absolutely amazing. He performed the trachea shave in a very safe manner, and I have experienced no negative changes in voice what so ever. Dr. Spiegel performed the brow lift slightly differently for me and the result suits my Asian face perfectly. He also fixed the minor ptosis in my right brow. Also what amazes me is the incision for my forehead reconstruction was closed up so carefully that after one week I can barely see the actual scar line except the scabs around it. As it turned out Dr. Spiegel was surprised too, because he said most patients aren’t nearly as careful as me after the procedure and always stress the surgery spot and stretch out the scar tissue early in the recovery process. Not only was the staff at Mount Auburn Hospital super friendly, I was offered a single room with a beautiful view of the river. My first night was absolutely painless, and my swelling was minimal. Also, the paient coordinator Katie at Dr. Spiegel’s office is the best! She was always responding to emails promptly, and she helped me so much with billing and scheduling the surgery. I messed up the payment because I didn’t read the instructions carefully but Katie figured everything out and dispersed the payment for me. Thank you so much!! Overall, I am very impressed by Dr. Spiegel and his team. I’ll definitely come back if I need anything else in the future, thank you thank you!

Mandible Contouring

I went to The Spiegel Center in 2020 for a full round of FFS. I was extremely nervous going into it as it was a major procedure that required a lot of paperwork and travel, but working with Carole and the staff at Spiegel Center, everything went so smoothly and efficiently it was almost like auto-pilot. The center itself is clean and easily located with lots of local housing and airbnbs, which made it easy to stay around for my return visits. The area itself is very cute with lots of culture and things to see and do leading up to the day. I was amazed at how clean and comfortable the center itself was and the Staff really helped me feel at ease throughout the entire process. I had heard rumors that Dr. Spiegel was one of the go-tos for FFS procedures. He had helped a friend of mine with her FFS and she was beautiful and recommended him, so I reached out and he got back to me in great timing for a free consultation. Having no experience of my own in the selection of which directions to go with surgically, I relied on careful advice from my consult with him to get the best look possible. I gave Dr. Spiegel full control to use his expertise and come up with a solid plan and direction for me and I was so happy with the results! My jawline, hairline, and new nose have completely changed my life. My side profile went from horrendous to very feminine, and the entire structure of my face is nearly indistinguishable from the blatant male markers I was cursed with prior. I kept in touch with Spiegel and his staff all throughout my recovery (they even sent me roses which was a sweet gesture) Any healing concerns or questions were quickly answered with respect and comfort and I always felt like they were guiding my softly along with a sort of expertise not often found in the modern medical establishment. Prior to my surgery with Dr. Spiegel I had been transitioning to female since 2009 but I never passed as flawlessly in my entire lifetime as I do now. It's changed the way I interact with everyone around me and boosted my confidence unlocking a new life I never thought possible before. This may seem like a sort of hammy review, but I just wanted to get it out there that Dr. Spiegel is amazing and I highly recommend him for FFS and trans related procedures. Thanks to the Spiegel team for everything!

I had an unbelievably amazing experience with Dr. Spiegel and his team at The Spiegel Center. I heard about Doctor Spiegel online and his work with FFS. I was only looking for a mandible contouring procedure and he had a very good reputation for them. I called and scheduled a consultation and that’s where I first met Dr. Spiegel. He not only presented me with all the options to make my jawline look the way I wanted, but he also made an effort to get to know me. When I shared with him that I was a nursing student pursuing a career in psych nursing he told me stories about his psych clinical rotation. He not only made the effort to get to know my goals for my face, but also went the extra mile to get to know me as a person which made me feel so much more confident in choosing him to do my procedure over other doctors I consulted with. Next, I met Carole, an absolute angel. She was there for me throughout the entire process with any questions I had and worked scheduling miracles so I could have the procedure done before I started my semester. I had my procedure done at the Newton Surgery location and Dr. Spiegel’s team there was incredible as well. About 3 days post op I had some pain in my lips because I had wrapped my bandages too tight (totally an error on my part). At about 8pm on Sunday I sent Carole a non-urgent email just to let her know I was going to call the next morning to ask if pain in my lips was normal. She emailed me back right away and Dr. Spiegel himself called me with in 5 minutes to make sure I was okay. He had me send him photos and he recognized that I had put the bandage back on too tight. He advised I take the bandage off and the issue immediately corrected itself. I could not be more thrilled with my results. I wasn’t looking for a dramatic change, I just wanted my jawline to look more symmetrical. My family and myself noticed the amazing difference and how much better my face looked. The difference was also subtle enough that people I don’t see every day weren’t able to notice that I had any work done. There was no scarring and I look so beautiful and natural, just a more enhanced version of myself. The people who did know I had the procedure done and saw my before and after photos were floored by what a difference it made in how much better I looked even though it was such a minor change. Since I had my mandible contouring done at The Spiegel Center, three of the people who saw my results have also booked procedures there. Three months after my mandible contouring The Spiegel Center called me to let me know they had an opening for me to get a rhinoplasty because they remembered that I had briefly mentioned I was interested in doing one back at my original consultation. I just had my rhinoplasty, and it came out exactly how I wanted. I have now had 2 procedures at the Spiegel Center with Dr. Spiegel that have gone above and beyond my expectations in every way. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Spiegel both for his surgical skills and his bedside manner, and the same for his entire team at The Spiegel Center, especially Carole. Thank you all so much for taking such great care of me and all your effort to make this such a positive experience for me!

Great Results! Dr. Spiegel performed my facial feminization surgery in mid-June (mandible & forehead contouring). I wanted to wait a bit after my surgery so I could be more sure of the results as they say that about every 3 months, they look better. I've certainly found that to be true. Dr. Spiegel did an excellent job feminizing those features & I feel much more comfortable with my face & how people view me. Healing was remarkably quick & pain-free (just tylenol after day of surgery) and the scar within my hairline is almost invisible just a few months later. Numbness went away after about two months for my scalp and mostly back to normal by 3 months for my chin (still some reduced/strange sensation but mostly not noticeable). My only difficulties came in trying to collect the information and get their office to fill out forms my insurance required for reimbursement. Most of those difficulties came from the side of my insurance company (BCBS) but it took multiple months of emailing back & forth to get all the documentation I needed for insurance approval. Dr. Spiegel himself was great & did an excellent job answering any questions I had, though he often seemed rushed/short on time as I was going through the questions I had after my initial consultation. Overall, I would highly recommend his work & I'm very happy with my results almost 6 months out. (As others have said, I've also had a lot of people - myself included - who've noticed how much I look like my sister now).

Working with Dr. Spiegel and staff was an amazing experience. I knew from the moment that I went in for my consultation that it was the place I would choose for my surgery. Everyone there is kind, friendly, and compassionate, especially the patient coordinators Carole and Uzma. I had mandible contour, forehead reduction, trachea shave, rhinoplasty, cheek implants and browlift and so far my results have been amazing. Dr. Spiegel is confident, precise, and he accommodates your expectations in a realistic and friendly manner. Both he and the staff are warm and hospitable and made my mother and I feel like Boston was our home away from how while we were there. I greatly enjoyed my time there, and if I ever need a future procedure done, I will go back to Boston! )

SugarpopPrincess, RealSelf, 3/27/20

I travelled from Virginia to Boston to have mandible contouring by Dr Spiegel and I must say it was the best descision I have ever made. I am very happy with my results going into my second week and I can already see the difference. Every one of his staff was very friendly and welcome. Carole my surgical coordinator went above and beyond to accommodate and I am so pleased with her. If any one is considering facial feminization surgery I please highly recommend Dr Spiegel. He's very patient and very kind, listens to your desires and makes suggestions. He is such a down-to-earth doctor with a witty sense of humor. I am so honored to have met him and glad I didn't make that trip to South Korea (famous for facial feminization surgeries).

Forehead Contouring

What a talented surgeon! Dr. Spiegel performed FFS on me which included hairline advancement and forehead contouring. He also used the tissue removed for a lip augmentation. I am thrilled with the results. His staff such as Dorit and Carole are exceptional too.

Anonymous, RealSelf,

I had a brow lift, scalp advancement, and a trachea shave. I looked into Dr. Spiegel because I'd read an article on him being featured as one of the best plastic surgeons one could find. Looking through his website, I knew I'd found the right doctor. I sent an initial inquiry through their online forum and within a day, Katie called me and was able to answer any and all of the initial questions I had to ask. I opted to have a consultation over Skype with the doctor. After listening to my concerns he suggested ways to fix the problems I'd listed. Past that I communicated with Kat for the months leading up to my surgery date. She was extremely resourceful, would answer my questions, and she was fast at replying; having interacted almost exclusively via email, it was a pleasant surprise. When I showed up for my pre-op visit, Kat was every bit as darling in person and walked me through my aftercare in depth. When I met Dr. Spiegel, he was positive and reassured me that everything would go just as well as I knew it would. The day of the surgery, the staff at the Boston Medical Center was warm and comforting. Dr. Spiegel came in to reassure me one last time before I was rolled off to the operating room. I was able to stop taking heavy painkillers on the first night of recovery and managed on Tylenol for the remainder of the week my head tingled. I was shocked how little I'd swelled--my eyes deepened and my trachea was a little puffed for the week but I was pretty much normal after that! When I came back to the Spiegel Center for my post-operative visit to have my staples removed, Kat, Dr. Spiegel, and one of the surgeons that had worked with him came to admire their work. I already felt so beautiful, and the amount of compliments the staff had given me, it made the experience that much more memorable. It's been five weeks since I've had surgery and I feel amazing. I really couldn't have asked for better and I can't wait to see how much better yet this'll get!

Trachea Shave

I first came to The Spiegel Center for Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) in 2019. After a positive experience, I returned two times — first, for a lip lift in 2022, and most recently this past summer for a tracheal shave. Dr. Spiegel listened to my needs and made sure I felt comfortable throughout all three experiences. Aside from Dr. Spiegel, the true highlight for me has been my Patient Care Coordinator, Carole Werner. She is an absolute gem and makes you feel so welcomed (and remembers the little details … always asks how my grandmother is doing, etc). My experiences at The Spiegel Center have been positive and I’m very happy with all three surgical results! 💎

Casey L., Google, 10/7/23

I've recently had three procedures at the Spiegel Center and couldn't be happier with the results. I had breast augmentation with Dr. Shektman and I'm incredibly happy with the results and my new look..I also had VFS(voice feminization and a tracheal reduction procedure with Dr. Spiegel. I can't thank Dr. Spiegel enough for the incredible improvement in my voice- For the first time in my life, I have a voice I feel matches who I am and one I'm comfortable projecting and hearing. I'd also like to give a shout out to the office staff at the Spiegel Center, especially Eleanor(the patient coordinator) and to Faith and the other medical assistants, all of whom went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. If you're looking to enhance or bring out the real you, I highly recommend the Spiegel Center. Chances are, they have just the procedure you've been looking for.

I had decided to have rhinoplasty and a trachea shave and was referred to Dr. Spiegel as one who has "wonderful results." My referral could not have been more accurate. It's been three weeks since the surgery and I have mostly recovered. I love the results and highly recommend Dr. Spiegel. He is clear, direct, empathetic, and an excellent surgeon. The process from my initial consultation to post-op care was managed by Uzma Husain, a Patient Coordinator at the Spiegel Center. She is wonderful to work with and I also highly recommend her. The staff at the Newton Surgical Center is also fantastic.

I couldn't be happier with the results and quality of treatment I received at the Spiegel center. Through every step of the process, they made me feel comfortable + reassured - something that's difficult for me as surgical things tend to freak me out. I went in for a tracheal shave, and they were extremely accommodating - taking me through the payment and preparation process, never making me feel uncertain or lost. The patient coordinator, Carole, was very friendly, and took the upmost care to make sure my correct name and pronouns were used. Dr. Spiegel's work was top-of-the-line. I had a very pronounced trachea, and he made it virtually disappear, with a very easy healing process afterwards. A warm shoutout as well to Dr. Eric, the anesthesiologist, and Fabiano, who's incredible bed side manner and quality of work I cannot overstate. I would definitely come back to the Spiegel center for all other trans-related surgeries!

Very Happy with my Tracheal Shave!!Dr. Spiegel’s team is very professional, efficient and great at what they do. Carole, my coordinator, was always available and she walked me through the entire process of tracheal shave, from consultations, lab work, insurance, to the surgery itself and post op. Her proficiency and thorough knowledge of what was involved helped calm my nerves. Dr. Spiegel is kind, direct to the point, no fluff and an artist!!

Dr. Spiegel is the best in the world. That is a simple fact. I am a physician who looked at all the options, then had FFS in September 2018, and vocal feminization in May 2019. I could not be happier with the elegant work. With one life to live and one chance to have these life-altering procedures, I could not have made a better choice. The journey with these gifted people has been remarkably uplifting and life-changing. I would not go anywhere else.

I am a 48 year Trans woman. I wanted to reduce the size of my Adam's apple and the square cartilage at the bottom of my throat. Dr. Spiegel was highly recommended by my gender therapist for his outstanding surgical and stiching skills. The results are great and I am very happy. My throat is not an area of concern anymore and it gives me additional confidence to be myself.

I decided to have trachea shave surgery to help me attain the look I desired. Any surgery is a scary proposition for me but this went smoothly and without any problems. The process from start to finish was simple and easy. I was treated with respect the whole time; by the doctor, his staff, and by hospital personnel. The cost while not inexpensive was acceptable. As time goes on I am so happy I had it done. The cost does not include the lab work and EKG that I had done with my primary doctor. Your cost may vary for these services. None of this was covered by my insurance, but I knew it wouldn't be.

Voice Surgery

Dr. Spiegel is a world class professional. I’m in my late 30s and had VFS with him in 2022 and FFS 10 weeks ago and have gotten past all of my healing. I had mandible and forehead contouring (with face lift), lip, and cheek augmentation. Everything is going as planned! My forehead was immediately smoother and jaw still has minor swelling as expected but I can’t stop looking at my face and thinking “I’m so cute!” The cool part is that when you get mandible contouring you get to see your results settle over time just like on the website pictures.

RealSelf,spicymage, 12/3/23

I’m two weeks post op from my first experience receiving cosmetic surgery from the very talented Dr Spiegel. I had jaw contouring, lower lid blepharoplasty, lip lift, and a chin revision, and am overjoyed with my results so far! Recovery was exactly as Dr Spiegel described and had gone quite smoothly. The staff at The Spiegel center are all wonderful, especially my patient care coordinator Uzma, who was not just helpful but caring and a delight to work with! The only hitch in my surgery was that I was delayed in arriving at the surgery center (in the same building as Dr Spiegel’s clinic - super convenient!) by an entire hour (totally my fault!). Instead of rescheduling me they expedited my pre-op care and everything continued without a problem. This took me from a virtual panic attack to massive relief. I cannot imagine other places & practitioners being so accommodating. These are just lovely people who do a great job and care about their patients. I will be returning for another procedure with Dr Spiegel soon with a feeling of total confidence. Update: since posting this I have had several more surgeries with Dr Spiegel - deep plane facelift, vocal feminization surgery - and each one has reinforced my opinion that Dr Spiegel and his team are the best in the business. As before, my healing was uncomplicated, the good doctor delivered exactly what he said he would, and I couldn't be happier with the results! Again, special mentions go out to my wonderful care coordinator, Uzma, and Juliana, the gender transition specialist on staff, who is a great resource. Thanks again, Spiegel Center!

I booked Voice Feminization Surgery through the Spiegel Center in Newton, Massachusetts. I went into surgery around 3pm and came out around 5:30. It was a fairly quick recovery and I was able to slowly start speaking after the month was up. I am showing progress every day as time goes on.

My experience with The Spiegel Center has been extremely comfortable and amazing. I had voice feminization surgery there back in January and the results just a month later are incredible! The staff has been incredibly nice and caring with me before and after my procedure. My patient care coordinator is Uzma and she is incredible! She responds promptly if you ever need anything, she is incredibly nice and truly cares about me and I’m sure all of her patients she takes care of :). Dr. Spiegel answered every question I had about the procedure and of course did an excellent job, he also has great bedside manner he checked in with me before and after my surgery. We also just had a follow up to make sure everything was healing well. I remember being nervous because surgery in general is scary. While I was laying on the operating table before I was put to sleep one of the nurses held me until I passed out to comfort me which meant the world to me. Love you guys ❤️ I’m so happy I made the decision to go here :).

I’m an older trans woman who is just three weeks post my fourth procedure with the lovely folks at the Spiegel Center and am happy with the results, as always! Yes, four procedures (to be accurate, four surgeries, with multiple procedures during each of the surgeries) - I've had mandible contouring, lip lift, brow lift, lower eye lift in the first surgery; deep plane face lift in the second, hair grafting in the third, and breast augmentation and vocal feminization in the fourth. I originally consulted with Dr Spiegel to see if he could improve on a facial feminization surgery I had 21 years ago - and he deftly met the challenge! I am very happy with the results in my face and now my voice, as well as the nice increase in my breast size (and beauty) courtesy of Dr Spiegel’s colleague, Dr Shektman! But that’s not all! I also had skin rejuvenation with Dr Onir at the Spiegel Center - IPL and Facial Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling (Morpheus8). The results have been quite pleasing, and am happy to have met and been under the able care of Dr Onir. So you could say i am a Spiegel fan, and i am a discerning consumer, and have done my research. Dr Spiegel and his colleagues are the best! i have experienced no complications with any of my procedures, much less discomfort that I had been expecting, especially with the extended deep plane facelift. The concern shown by staff at the Spiegel Center has also been warm and affirming each time, and the medical staff at the attached Newton Surgery Center are also fabulous. I also want to make special mention of the Spiegel Center’s newest member, Juliana Wall, who is their Transition Counselor, the first such position at a plastic surgery center in the US. She is so warm, friendly, and knowledgeable, and as a trans woman herself, speaks with personal experience. I love Juliana! You won’t be disappointed if you are a trans woman and receive feminizing procedures at the Spiegel Center!

I am posting this under FFS because there is no treatment option in realself for VFS and Dr. Spiegel does do FFS as well. To be clear, the below review is for VFS not FFS. I am extremely happy with my Voice Feminization Surgery (VFS) result. I had VFS with Dr. Spiegel because I trusted him. Specifically, I had been following his work for over a decade and admired his years of experience helping people live their authentic lives. I might have considered looking into the other popular clinic in South Korea but due to COVID my first reaction was to look locally for surgeons who might perform the same procedure locally in the states. I was delighted to see that Dr. Spiegel did, who I had already been following for almost a decade for his well known work in FFS. Carole and Dr. Spiegel helped me decide the right procedures for me (I was considering possibly getting FFS as well at the time but will probably do so in the future) and I decided on just getting VFS for now. I had an already trained voice at a steady 170hz avg speaking, androgynous/femme passing voice - never gendered incorrectly. However, I didn't like my voice on the phone or recordings. I spend most of my life on Zoom calls for work and have to listen to recordings often. After following his strict instructions (not talking, taking it easy, etc...) I wanted to wait at least 6 months before writing a review. At the 6 month point my voice is now on average 190-210hz depending on how much coffee I've had (lol) using the same amount of effort I did before and I am MUCH happier with my voice in recordings. My voice rarely gets tired anymore either as when I am tired I am less concerned about keeping up a trained femme voice. Given, results are not always guaranteed in this surgery (with any surgeon) just due to all of the many variables with voice - Dr. Spiegel did not try to convince me that I would 100% have the results I wanted. He was very honest and I appreciate that honesty. He also has had a lot of success over the many years he has been doing this procedure and could speak to that success which gave me the confidence to undertake the procedure. For ANY surgeon doing VFS I wouldn't recommend you do this until you've trained your voice and spent good effort trying to raise your pitch yourself. Once you've reached that point VFS could be the answer you need, it was for me and many others.

I had the most wonderful experience with Dr. Spiegel, Carole and the whole team at The Spiegel Center. I came from out of town for a vocal chord procedure that outside of South Korea, very few doctors do and everything came out exactly as I had hoped for. I'm healed for 6 months and everything happened as planned with me following Dr. Spiegel's recovery instructions. I'm grateful for my experience and hope to go back to Dr. Spiegel again for a different procedure in the future.

I've recently had three procedures at the Spiegel Center and couldn't be happier with the results. I had breast augmentation with Dr. Shektman and I'm incredibly happy with the results and my new look..I also had VFS(voice feminization and a tracheal reduction procedure with Dr. Spiegel. I can't thank Dr. Spiegel enough for the incredible improvement in my voice- For the first time in my life, I have a voice I feel matches who I am and one I'm comfortable projecting and hearing. I'd also like to give a shout out to the office staff at the Spiegel Center, especially Eleanor(the patient coordinator) and to Faith and the other medical assistants, all of whom went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. If you're looking to enhance or bring out the real you, I highly recommend the Spiegel Center. Chances are, they have just the procedure you've been looking for.

I had a phenomenal surgical experience with Dr. Spiegel and the Spiegel Center. I had a great relationship with my surgical representative and she was so understanding and helpful when it came to paperwork, finances, logistics, etc. The nurses were so kind and reassuring, as this was my first surgery ever. And, of course, Dr. Spiegel is a kind professional who knows what he is doing. I'm healing well from the amazing procedure I had, and I am so excited that I am feeling more like myself 🙂 thank you!

I had voice feminizing surgery with Dr. Spiegel on Nov. 18th, 2021. It Is January 05, 2022 and I am leaving my review. Nearly 7 weeks out and my voice has become much more feminine and has stayed that way. Now it’s time for it to smooth out and I have maintained the higher pitch and no lower male resonation has returned. I am so thankful for Dr. Spiegel and all of his team. The I went in for the procedure that was 7 staff present and my lead nurse, well he was awesome. All of his staff are wonderful, accepting and caring. I am having FFS in 2022 and after my voice surgery, Dr. Spiegel and his team is the only choice for me. Carole Werner works in Dr. Spiegel’s office and is awesome. She helped me from the beginning until the end. She is a guide a coach and over better than a year she helped me get everything that I needed and has checked on me since my surgery. My surgery was outpatient and I was unable to talk for 3 weeks, the even after my surgery, my nurse called my wife to check on me and done this for several more days. I could. Ot have asked or prayed for a more professional surgeon or staff. Thank you to all the staff Dana “Scorpio” from NC

I have had both VFS and FFS with Dr. Spiegel. The staff is kind and very friendly. Dr. Spiegel is extremely professional and answered all of my questions. He listens to his patients. He is by far the only cosmetic surgeon I trust and I recommend him strongly.

Dr. Onir is a wonder. I recently saw her for botox to help with my headaches. She was very compassionate and thoughtful. Dr. Onir listened to all of my concerns and answered all of my questions. She made the procedure comfortable and painless. Not only did it help with my pain but the cosmetic effects were wonderful.

Everyone at the Spiegel Center has been so kind and helpful. I have had the Pleasure of working with many of the staff and providers. Treatments are always preformed with great care and never rushed. The care coordinators and providers are always available to answer any questions and the office staff are always there to make sure you are comfortable. The procedures I have had have always been highly effective with outstanding results. Including botox, Morpheus8, mole removal and Tummy Tuck.

Dr. Onir is not only highly skilled in beautifying, she’s also always in consistent pursuit of progress.

I recently received a non-surgical rhinoplasty and botox with Onir a few weeks ago and I've been ecstatic with the results. She and the rest of the staff at the clinic made each experience a breeze and answered all my questions and concerns well. It was my first time doing a cosmetic procedure and they made me feel very comfortable with the whole process. The results look natural, and I've never been happier with my nose. Today, I went and had the first of my CoolSculpting sessions and had yet another pleasant experience. I am looking forward to my next experience with The Spiegel Center!

Dr Onir Spiegel gave me botox injections on my forehead to relax my wrinkles. The injections were painless and the results so far are terrific. I also had injections of filler in my tear throphs and my cheeks. Again the procedure was surprisingly painless, quick and the results are fantastic. She really seemed to care and was very funny too. Angelica the coordinator was excellent to deal with, see answered questions very quickly. And all the staff were really caring,honest and skilled. I recomend the practice to anyone who is considering plastic surgery as they care and will be honest with

Recently had a follow-up appointment with Dr. Onir Spiegel. She spent time talking with me about my concerns, offered feedback and we made a decision together. I never feel pushed into a product or rushed.I had additional injections of Radiesse and Xeomin with minimal pain. Uzma was also helpful in seeing me prior to Dr. Spiegel and discussing my concerns. She was also able to explain pricing and my payment options clearly. Both are incredibly caring, listening and responsive professionals!!

Spiegel Center is clutch. What sets them apart is their commitment and dedication to continuing education. They apply the latest breakthroughs rooted by Dr. Spiegel's experience and passion as a pioneer in surgery. Looking through Dr. Spiegel's work you will notice his attention to detail results in a natural look versus a fake exaggerated look, often seen by procedures in Hollywood. Look no where else. Its here.

T.N.

Always responsive and informative and caring! I have been seeing Dr. Onir Spiegel, his wife for my injectables the past few years. She is always responsive and focused and offers options and suggestions. I never feel pushed into anything. Dr Jeffrey has been called in for consultations at times which is always helpful. Her patient care manager, Uzma Husain is incredibly caring and helpful . She explains everything and interprets procedures clearly. I never feel rushed. The practice is professional and yet very caring - like an extended family!! I always feel welcomed when I come!

I have been going to Dr. Onir Spiegel for fillers, Botox, and other rejuvenating procedures for years now. She is a true professional in terms of discussing what results I am looking for and being honest about how to best achieve this. Especially with fillers, which I believe is an art, she has a knack of just tweaking things so that I have better results than I even hoped for. I feel so comfortable, and that I am in the most competent hands. I wouldn't trust anyone else at this point :) You only get one face!!

Wow, what an incredible experience!! I have never been so comfortable getting my injections as I have in this office. Everyone, from April, the aesthetics coordinator, to Dr Onir couldn’t have made me feel more comfortable before, during, and after my procedure. I feel so beautiful and will continue to travel from Florida for any work I chose to have done! Thank you Spiegel Center!

The best cosmetic surgeon in the world, bar none. Dr Onir is a lovely person and she gives awesome results.

I saw Dr Onir twice now and the results have been incredible. She is a lovely person and will tailor for your needs, not her own. I had injectable fillers on my face and also the micro needling, Morpheus8. The results were fantastic and the procedure was almost painless. All the staff are so nice and welcoming, they are a joy to deal with. If you feel you need any cosmetic work, please go and see Dr Onir.

Very happy with my experiences with both Dr. Onir and Dr. Spiegel. Dr. Onir performed a "Non-surgical rhinoplasty" with great skill and artistry. I was not very optimistic at first because I thought my nose would be too challenging for this procedure, but I was surprised by how much better and how beautiful it looks now. The virtually painless process took less than 15 minutes. I'd definitely return for this procedure and future procedures with Dr. Onir because I trust her aesthetic and the results. I also had a consultation with Dr. Spiegel about a future rhinoplasty. He was so kind and sincere. He made great observations and I feel very confident being a patient in the future. The office and support staff are friendly and understanding. I feel like this center is a perfect one-stop location for every cosmetic need.

I was so nervous before coming in to see Dr Onir but my worries went away soon after speaking with Taylor who answered all of my questions, and after meeting Dr Onir. I had filler injected into the bridge of my nose to reduce the appearance ornate a bump, and also under my eyes to reduce any eye bags I have picked up since turning 30 ;) I loved it and had no bruising or pain during or after the treatment.

Lip Filler

Had got a liquid nose job and lip filler. Never been so confident with my nose! The doctor shaped it perfectly, and she made it very comfortable. I had suggested that if they could fit me in for lip filler since I was there and originally had an appointment somewhere else later that day. They set me up instantly and the results are better than I expected! So happy I went the Spiegal Center. Highly recommend.

Olivia was very friendly, enthusiastic,very informative and I️ am so thankful she steered me to the Spiegel Center. Will definitely be returning in the future!

Gina L., Google, 1/21/21

I recently got lip filler from Dr. Onir at the Spiegel Center and had a really wonderful experience. This was my first time getting any sort of cosmetic procedure and I was extremely worried and nervous but it went great! Dr. Onir is very thorough and clear with explaining EXACTLY what she is doing and walking you through the steps gently. She is very kind and had a great bedside manner. At one point, I felt very faint and she could tell immediately. She reclined the chair I was in, and her coordinator, Jamie, got me some water and a cold compress for my forehead and when I was ready she kept going. I could tell an immediate, positive difference! She was great about explaining aftercare and upkeep, explained I would be swollen and possibly bruised for the next few days and that I would see the full results after about two weeks. She was exactly right, the recovery process was very easy, I really didn't have to do anything and now my lips are very soft and full and look beautiful! I am looking forward to my touch up appointment with her! I also had a great experience in general at the Spiegel Center. I originally consulted with Dr. Spiegel because I wanted to discuss the various options of lip augmentation. He is a great listener and explained everything very well. We discussed the lip lift as well as lip fillers as I was unsure. After going through the procedures and looking at price quotes, we decided that I would try the lip fillers first and see how I liked that. I would definitely love to undergo the lip lift surgery with him in the future! I really liked that Dr. Spiegel asked "What do you want your lips to look like?" and asked me what I liked about my lips and what I wanted to change, rather than asking me what I didn't like about them. He also did not try to convince me to get any other procedures (my mom was worried this would happen) which I liked! His staff is very kind and made me feel much calmer about being at a plastic surgeon's office. I worked a lot with Carol, who was so friendly and helpful and with Jaime. Jaime was so wonderful on the day I got my lips done! She made me feel a lot better and told me what to expect even before Dr. Onir came in. She is very funny and conversational and made me feel much more at ease. She is also very "on it" and professional. She assured me before I left that my lips would feel back to normal and look great, and she was right! I do not have my before pictures but as soon as I get them, I will post them to show what a great job she did! Even friends and family that were unsure about me getting filler loved the results and said it looked great.

I love the Spiegel Center! I've been coming here for fillers since last year and love the results so, so much. Dr. Onir is always so sweet and knowledgeable, and she numbs me up so I don't feel any pain. Last time I wanted a specific look of my lips and she did a fantastic job. Everyone always comments on them saying they look so natural! I love them. Uzma was so so kind and sweet too - she answered lots of my questions. Definitely recommending this place to my friends in Boston!

FaceTite

I can’t express enough how pleased I am with Dr. Tower. I had Facetite and Morpheus 8 done to the face and neck by Dr. Tower. During the procedure, he had numbed me and I did not feel anything; a much better alternative then being put to sleep. There was minimal discomfort and downtime. I am very happy with the results. It definitely gave me back that redefined look I was hoping for. Thank you, Dr. Tower! I would trust Dr. Tower with any future surgeries!

I had a neck and face tite procedure at the Center, and the results in just a couple months are already amazing! Dr Spiegel is skilled, personable and comforting, and I have to say, his assistant Eleanor was also so amazing... She got me through the procedure and post-care with her incredibly sweet personality and savvy skill set. I was nervous, having had no real experience with this...the experience level , comfort level and trust in your physician and staff all go into the making of a decision to do something good for your self. I am so glad I found Dr. Spiegel and his incredible staff.

Eleanor was fabulous walking me through the steps and preparation, as well as everybody I encountered in the office. First class operation from start to finish I will definitely be back.

Mary F., Google, 11/28/22

I visited the Spiegel Center back in April for Neck/face-tite and am very happy with the experience and results. Dr. Spiegel, Uzma - the Patient Coordinator, and the entire staff were great throughout the entire process (pre, during, post procedure). The procedure itself took less than 45 minutes, wasn't painful (although some mild discomfort as expected), and was minimally invasive meaning I could have returned to work/social life within 2-3 days if I wanted to (minus the requirement to wear a facial compression for the first 5 full days for the recovery process) without anyone noticing I had a procedure done. I am currently 4 months post procedure and the results are great as is, and will continue to improve for the next 2-4 months for the final result. I personally experienced little-to-no swelling, zero bruising, and just very mild tightness/stiffness in the treated areas for a couple of weeks. I visited and consulted with several other placed prior to ultimately choosing the Spiegel Center, and I'm very glad that I did. I'd highly recommend their work, professionalism, and the experience they provide.

I did the facetite 3 months ago. It was a nice experience. I did an hour communication with Dr.Spiegel before the surgery. He is patient enough to listen to my confusion and make a elaborate planning. His confidence made me relax during the surgery. Uzma is also helps me a lot to solve me questions, her answer speed is so fast like always online.

Dr. Spiegel was very attentive to my needs and wants in terms of what I wanted. He did what was best for me and made me feel like I was being listened to. He did such an amazing with the Facetite and I can’t say how beyond grateful I am. I can see the results already and I still have a little more time to see the full results. I’m excited to see what the complete outcome of this is in a few months! I already have so much more confidence with the way I look and feel. Thank you so much Dr. Spiegel, I appreciate everything you have done for me! Eleanor, my patient care coordinator, was very sweet and helpful amongst this process, as this was my first time getting this done. She made me feel at ease about everything and that it would be such a wonderful outcome, and she was more than right. She helped in so many way including setting everything up and making everything go so smoothly. I couldn’t ask for a better person to help out with this. Thank you Eleanor, you are so amazing and hope to see you soon!

The entire team at the Spiegel center is excellent. During my visit, I was extremely nervous, and they went above and beyond to make me comfortable every step of the way. Eleanor is an absolute pleasure, and you can tell from your first conversation with her that she cares tremendously about giving you the best experience. Dr. Spiegel is personable and obviously very talented at what he does. He was confident and light hearted during the procedure which helped to put me at ease. Feeling very fortunate that I made the decision to book with the Spiegel center!

Morpheus8

Dr. Tower is truly an artist and he took the time to customize exactly what would best benefit me. His nature/personality immediately immediately put me as 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 whom had an extensive background, experience and certifications, etc. - which Dr. Towers has exceptionally built over his career. Also, I 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!

Everyone at the Spiegel Center has been so kind and helpful. I have had the Pleasure of working with many of the staff and providers. Treatments are always preformed with great care and never rushed. The care coordinators and providers are always available to answer any questions and the office staff are always there to make sure you are comfortable. The procedures I have had have always been highly effective with outstanding results. Including botox, Morpheus8, mole removal and Tummy Tuck.

B.L., Yelp, 10/3/23

I can’t express enough how pleased I am with Dr. Tower. I had Facetite and Morpheus 8 done to the face and neck by Dr. Tower. During the procedure, he had numbed me and I did not feel anything; a much better alternative then being put to sleep. There was minimal discomfort and downtime. I am very happy with the results. It definitely gave me back that redefined look I was hoping for. Thank you, Dr. Tower! I would trust Dr. Tower with any future surgeries!

Exceptional Facial Aesthetics Experience with Dr. Spiegel! Updated Review (previous review written for FFS, also 5 star). I recently had the privilege of visiting Dr. Spiegel for facial aesthetics treatments (3rd Morpheus 8 treatment), and I cannot express enough how impressed I am with his expertise and care. As someone who has previously tried local options in North Carolina, I can confidently say that Dr. Spiegel stands head and shoulders above the rest. From the moment I stepped into his clinic, I was greeted by a warm and professional staff who made me feel at ease (thank you Faith, and the other kind receptionist/assistant…I forgot her name😔). Of course Carole, my Client Care Coordinator, is always available for questions, concerns, or entertaining my rambling about Boston traffic. Dr. Spiegel himself exudes a remarkable level of knowledge and skill, leaving no doubt in my mind that I was in the hands of a true expert. His commitment to understanding my unique facial concerns and desired outcomes was evident throughout our discussions. What truly sets Dr. Spiegel apart is his ability to enhance facial tone and features with incredible precision and artistry. His treatments go beyond surface-level improvements, delving into the realm of transformative results. The remarkable improvements I have witnessed in my own skin are a testament to his exceptional talent. Not only did Dr. Spiegel provide outstanding results, but he also prioritized my comfort and well-being throughout the process. His approachable demeanor and genuine concern for his patients foster a trusting and supportive environment, making every visit a positive experience. It's worth noting that despite having local options for facial treatments, I willingly choose to travel to see Dr. Spiegel because he is the only one I trust with my skin. His unwavering dedication to staying at the forefront of facial aesthetics ensures that he consistently delivers the highest quality of care and the latest techniques. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Spiegel to anyone seeking top-tier facial aesthetics treatments. His expertise, artistry, and commitment to patient satisfaction are unmatched. If you're looking for remarkable results and a truly transformative experience, Dr. Spiegel is the professional you can trust with your skin and facial features.

Dr. Spiegel is an extremely gifted surgeon! He is so kind, knowledgeable, skilled and funny! That last adjective is an appropriate humor that puts you at ease. I wouldn’t want anyone else to perform this surgery. My trust in him is 100%!! I recently had a lower Blepharoplasty, Morpheus8 and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light done at The Spiegel Center in Newton, Ma. Dr. Spiegel and his fellow, Dr. Vandenberg performed the procedures in the office under local anesthesia and I felt no pain from the surgery! My results are amazing! My under eye bags, wrinkles and crepey skin are GONE and my skin is glowing from the Morpheus8 and IPL. Fine lines and wrinkles have disappeared and continue to as collagen and elastin keeps producing: making my skin tighter. It was the greatest experience. My surgical coordinator Uzma Husain arranged everything from scheduling to payment to aftercare. She was so supportive and followed up with me several times post operatively. It was a such a pleasure to work with her! She is so encouraging and very organized and makes you feel so good. I am so happy with the results I would recommend this to anyone who is bothered by eye bags, wrinkles, age spots, enlarged pores, redness etc. My overall experience was A++++++ 10 stars! The staff is so caring and want you to have a relaxing and stress free experience. Uzma, Dr. Spiegel and Dr. Vandenberg went above and beyond to make me feel good about myself and I’m so grateful for their expertise and wonderful 'bedside' manner! I can’t wait to do Morpheus8 again! What a difference it makes for such a short (and for me, pain free) procedure! I highly recommend booking a consultation as soon as possible! Thank you all for giving me my confidence back!

Dr. Onir is not only highly skilled in beautifying, she’s also always in consistent pursuit of progress. She makes suggestions she confidently believes are only going to improve the overall result of your goals. My experiences with Dr. Onir are with Morpheus 8, Botox, and dermal fillers. Extremely satisfied with her expertise!! The only regret you’ll have is having waited to visit the Spiegel Center!

I had a wonderful experience every time I visited the Spiegel Center. I had Morpheus 8 , I am fascinated with the results. If considering any aesthetic process the Spiegel Center is the best place to go. I will definitely recommend.

S.F., RealSelf, 12/9/22

Great sessions with Aisha! Had 3 Morpheus8 sessions and she took great care of me. She seemed to really care about me and the treatment. Great results for my acne scars and minimally painful. Will definitely ask for her if I have any future sessions.

J.K., RealSelf, 12/1/22

For the swelling [Dr. Spiegel] recommended I get Morpheus8 for both swelling and acne scarring. Initially, I was nervous about his decision because I had undergone many laser treatments to eliminate my acne scars and worked with numerous dermatologists, but unfortunately I developed melasma, which no one could cure even after spending years of my money. Dr Spiegel put me on oral tranexamic acid and hydroquinone, which I discontinued a few times because they didn't work for my skin and a serum I got from his office. In one month after starting Morpheus8, I have noticed some improvement on my acne scarring, but more importantly, my melasma and discoloration are starting to fade. The only surgeon and doctor I love to continue working with is Dr Spiegel and I highly recommend him to anyone with any concerns they may have.

BodyTite

I was at my annual physical and my doctor looked at my stomach and said 'you can't tell you ever carried a child, never mind two' - she had no idea I’d had bodytite 2 months ago! Huge thanks to Dr. Spiegel and his amazing team!

IzzyB14, RealSelf, 2/28/24

Immediate results after BodyTite on stomach & flanks & buccal fat removal When I went to the Spiegel Center I was unsure about going through with the procedures I had which included buccal fat removal as well as bodytite on my stomach and flanks. I am so happy I decided to go through with both procedure and the results were immediately noticeable and continue to improve. The staff answered all of my questions and were very attentive.

S.B., RealSelf, 7/23/22

Everyone at the Spiegel Center is very professional and courteous. Dr. Spiegel is amazing at what he does and makes you feel comfortable right away. The bodytite procedure was unbelievable and I'm so glad I decided to do it!!

Dr Spiegal and his staff (Uzma, Carol) are always professional, very patient and willing to answer endless questions so you are completely comfortable with the process. The results are always measured against the high standards that Dr Spiegal holds his work to. I wouldn’t go anywhere else when considering any procedure to enhance or maintain my appearance.

I have been to the Spiegel Center a few times. This most recent visit was for IPL. From the minute I walk in until the time I leave, I never feel like just a patient. The staff is so friendly, especially Shoilee and April. I feel like I am hanging out friends. Dr. Onir takes the time to answer all my questions and address all my concerns. I never feel rushed. I highly recommend The Spiegel Center.

Heather L., Google, 1/30/23

I see Dr. Onir for botox and filler and she is really the best of the best. Anytime she suggests something, I trust her fully and the results are always fabulous! I see Dr. Vandenberg for IPL and she is also the best! I have done 2 sessions with her so far and she’s always so kind and knowledgeable. 10/10 would recommend The Spiegel Center to anyone!

I received a series of (3) IPL treatments, primarily for hyperpigmentation and acne. My expectations were not high, as I have been dealing with stubborn acne my entire life, and the red marks left behind can linger for a year or more. I have tried so many topical and oral treatments. So I was surprised and THRILLED when after the 2nd treatment, I began to notice serious changes. I went from a girl with "bad skin" to receiving COMPLIMENTS on my skin, including from my PCP! So the results were great, but I also want to compliment the staff, who went out of the way to understand my expectations and that I was satisfied with the treatment. Eleanor coordinated my treatments, including reaching out before the treatment to make sure I had "prepped" properly, for example, with numbing cream. This care goes a long way, especially when you are new to the treatment, busy, and anxious. A picture is worth a thousand words, so pictures are included!

Went here for a consult for microneedling or IPL and met with Kayla the new esthetician and Taylor. They were both extremely knowledgable, were able to answer all of my questions and help me decide on a treatment that worked for me!

Amazing practice! I had a delightful experience with Dr. Spiegel. My results are outstanding and I definitely look forward to future visits. The physician took his time, supported me, and offered next steps. I appreciate his honesty, kindness, and expertise.

Five years ago I was fortunate enough to choose Dr. Spiegel for a full facelift. It was truly a positive a successful experience. I have been very happy with the results and decided to meet with Dr. Spiegel again to discuss possible micro-needling. Dr. Onir Spiegel thought that micro-needling would be very beneficial for my skin. I have received two of the three treatments and am very pleased with the results so far. Katie Deveney is the Clinical Services Manager and is a joy to work with. I hadn't seen her in some time and she greeted me with a warm welcoming hug and made me feel happy to be back. Kayla Allard is my medical esthetician and couldn't be more professional, knowledgeable and helpful. My experience with the Spiegel Center has always been one of professionalism with a strong influence of family and caring.

Originally I made an appointment with Dr. Onir Spiegel to go in and talk about having some scar revision done. When meeting with her she asked me exactly what I was looking for and we discussed some concerns of mine in regards to having a surgery done on an old scar which is on my face. The biggest thing for me was the fact I am in sales and did not want to have stitches in my face again to try to minimize the appearance of this scar. She then suggested trying micro needling. At the time I did not know exactly what micro needling was so she explained the procedure and that it would help stimulate collagen and elastin production which is what happens when your skin heals. This in turn helps minimize the appearance of a scar along with minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I went in for 4 treatments over a period of 6-7months. I could not be happier with the result. I had my whole face done and my skin looks beautiful. I get compliments on it all the time. My scar is very hard to see also which is exactly the result I wanted. For me there was no down time on this. I was able to cover up any redness with makeup the next day and after 3-4 days my face was completely back to normal as far as coloring goes. Not only was Dr. Onir wonderful but the office staff was outstanding. They helped me with getting products to help my skin heal which they carry right in their office. The whole experience was wonderful and I can't thank them all enough!

During my first year of medical school, my complexion changed significantly. I noticed a ton of small bumps that popped up on my forehead and cheeks. My skin was no longer clear and smooth and I lost the confidence in my skin I once had. I spent years trying to find a solution to my skin issues including trips to multiple dermatologists and the investment in countless products. Some made my skin much worse while others offered minimal improvement. But none resolved the issue completely. I recently decided to have a micro needling treatment. After all the ineffective products I had used, I was skeptical. It has been about a week since I had the micro-needling and already I am seeing significant improvement in the appearance and texture of my skin. And the bumps are almost completely gone! For the first time in so long, I will leave my house makeup free. I have been told that the results continue to improve with subsequent treatments and given the results I have experienced, I believe it. I am so excited about micro needling and if you are considering it, I highly recommend you give it a try!

Hair Reduction

I visited the Spiegel Center for electrolysis after other electrolysis options were not viable due to the intense pain. I was blown away by the professionalism and efficacy of the staff. Dr. Onir did an excellent job injecting to prevent pain and Aisha, my technician, worked quickly and effectively and did everything possible to make me feel comfortable. In just a few sessions the results were excellent and I was happy to return. I highly recommend Aisha and the Spiegel Center to anyone considering electrolysis for permanent hair removal.

I can’t say enough about the staff at Dr. Spiegel’s office. Taylor has been by my side since I booked my first consultation and proven to be a diligent and attentive patient care coordinator. Kayla has completely changed my skin. I have never felt so confident. I went from just trying facials (which are by far the most healing and soothing I have ever had) to laser hair removal and microneedling treatments. I’ve been very impressed with my results and can’t wait to go back!

After suffering from terrible ingrown hairs and bi monthly waxes I decided to finally give Laser Hair Removal a try. I also had a low hairline that really bothered me when I wore my hair up as those pesky little hairs never would reach my ponytail or grow long like the rest of my hair. I called the office to schedule my appointment & was greeted warmly right after one ring! After asking a few initial questions I decided to schedule my consultation with Kayla and her coordinator Taylor who was also amazing and fit me in a time that worked well with my busy work schedule. When you walk in its like a beautiful white palace! The sparkling diamond chandeliers and beautiful decor really give it an upscale feel. The girls at the front desk are gorgeous and so sweet! They offered me a drink and helped me sign in. I knew I would be in great hands! Kayla was amazing. I was very nervous but she instantly calmed my nerves and made me feel comfortable. The treatment was quick and easy and I was out the door shortly after. I really enjoyed that the treatment was done in a medical spa setting because it felt very clean while still being elegant and chic! Kayla did tell me it would take a couple of sessions but after just one session I have had little to no hair grow back! My one regret is that I didn't come see Kayla sooner! My skin is so smooth and soft and I am going to do other areas as well now. She also does other laser treatments as well as micro needling which I am going to try for some stretch marks I have and want to get rid of! Taylor was super informative and helped me pick a package that was a great price and would cover all of my treatments. I also splurged and picked up some skin care that she recommend (her skin looks like a doll so I trusted her completely!) I am loving them so far as well. It is worth a visit to their office, you will not regret it!

Hair Restoration

I came to the spiegel center around fall for a hair transplant and lip lift. From the start the staff were extremely helpful and kind. My surgery was scheduled just a couple months after my consult. I’m almost 9 months out and I’m extremely happy with the results

A.D., Google, 3/21/22

Dr. Spiegel and his team did a great job! On February 13 I had forehead reduction, hairline lowering, eyebrow lift, rhinoplasty, full face fat grafting and a subtle augmentation of my upper lip. There was very little pain after surgery- mainly discomfort from not being able to breathe through my nose. I hardly had to take any of the oxycodone they prescribed. (To be fair, I seemed to recover abnormally quickly so my experience might not be representative.) Then on February 20 I got 2000 FUE hair grafts to fill in my temples. It's now February 24 and I'm feeling well enough to go back to work. I already love the results- my forehead and nose especially already look MUCH better (i.e. less masculine). And it will only improve as the swelling continues to diminish and the last remaining bruise under my right eye disappears. Thank you Dr. Spiegel, Eleanor, and everyone who helped me at the Spiegel Center!

Breast Augmentation

The Spiegel Center has been amazing in taking care of my surgical and esthetic needs! I've had facial feminization surgery, breast augmentation, botox and filler, and I couldn't be happier with the results! I plan on going back for any further needs I have and continuing being a regular client.

A.S., RateMD, 7/21/23

I've had two surgeries here, FFS and top surgery, as well as electrolysis. The staff and surgeons are top-notch. Post-surgery, Fabio was an amazing nurse, always available to answer any questions by text or voice for several days after surgery. Uzma was my surgical coordinator. She was, and continues to be, amazing. For electrolysis April was my coordinator. She was and continues to be, wonderful as well. The electrologist was also raising the bar. I can't say enough positive things about the staff, Dr. Spiegel, or his better half, Dr. O.

Rachel F., Yelp,5/3/23

I’m an older trans woman who is just three weeks post my fourth procedure with the lovely folks at the Spiegel Center and am happy with the results, as always! Yes, four procedures (to be accurate, four surgeries, with multiple procedures during each of the surgeries) - I've had mandible contouring, lip lift, brow lift, lower eye lift in the first surgery; deep plane face lift in the second, hair grafting in the third, and breast augmentation and vocal feminization in the fourth. I originally consulted with Dr Spiegel to see if he could improve on a facial feminization surgery I had 21 years ago - and he deftly met the challenge! I am very happy with the results in my face and now my voice, as well as the nice increase in my breast size (and beauty) courtesy of Dr Spiegel’s colleague, Dr Shektman! But that’s not all! I also had skin rejuvenation with Dr Onir at the Spiegel Center - IPL and Facial Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling (Morpheus8). The results have been quite pleasing, and am happy to have met and been under the able care of Dr Onir. So you could say i am a Spiegel fan, and i am a discerning consumer, and have done my research. Dr Spiegel and his colleagues are the best! i have experienced no complications with any of my procedures, much less discomfort that I had been expecting, especially with the extended deep plane facelift. The concern shown by staff at the Spiegel Center has also been warm and affirming each time, and the medical staff at the attached Newton Surgery Center are also fabulous. I also want to make special mention of the Spiegel Center’s newest member, Juliana Wall, who is their Transition Counselor, the first such position at a plastic surgery center in the US. She is so warm, friendly, and knowledgeable, and as a trans woman herself, speaks with personal experience. I love Juliana! You won’t be disappointed if you are a trans woman and receive feminizing procedures at the Spiegel Center!

I've recently had three procedures at the Spiegel Center and couldn't be happier with the results. I had breast augmentation with Dr. Shektman and I'm incredibly happy with the results and my new look..I also had VFS(voice feminization and a tracheal reduction procedure with Dr. Spiegel. I can't thank Dr. Spiegel enough for the incredible improvement in my voice- For the first time in my life, I have a voice I feel matches who I am and one I'm comfortable projecting and hearing. I'd also like to give a shout out to the office staff at the Spiegel Center, especially Eleanor(the patient coordinator) and to Faith and the other medical assistants, all of whom went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. If you're looking to enhance or bring out the real you, I highly recommend the Spiegel Center. Chances are, they have just the procedure you've been looking for.

DC2099, RealSelf 10/14/22

The entire staff here has been just amazing. From the first consultation until my latest (but certainly not last) procedure, I've been treated with respect, kindness, and the utmost care. Dr. Spiegel knew exactly what my facial feminization surgery should entail, and never pressured me for anything more than what was necessary. He put me at ease, and his expertise gave me the features I've been dreaming of. Dr. Shektman's breast augmentation also turned out perfect. I love my new figure! Dr. Onir is amazing - she provided excellent care when I went in for botox, and I'll be returning for filler very soon. Eleanor (my patient coordinator) and the rest of the staff have been incredible. Whether it's answering my endless questions, working around my scheduling, or just reassurance, the staff here has provided excellent service and care. I'll be doing all my future procedures here, without a doubt. EDIT: 6 Months later: It's been six months, and the results continue to get better and better! Everything has healed wonderfully, and I was almost shocked when seeing an older picture of myself the other day. I feel great - all of the pain and numbness have totally subsided, and the transformation continually blows me away. I would recommend anyone considering Facial Feminization Surgery to consult with Dr. Spiegel.

Body Contouring

I recently received a non-surgical rhinoplasty and botox with Onir a few weeks ago and I've been ecstatic with the results. She and the rest of the staff at the clinic made each experience a breeze and answered all my questions and concerns well. It was my first time doing a cosmetic procedure and they made me feel very comfortable with the whole process. The results look natural, and I've never been happier with my nose. Today, I went and had the first of my CoolSculpting sessions and had yet another pleasant experience. I am looking forward to my next experience with The Spiegel Center!

Daniel Z., Google Revies, 11/1/22

I usually visit the Spiegel Center for Botox with Dr. Onir and also laser hair removal. I recently decided that I wanted to try fat freezing. Like many women, I hold excess fat in my lower abdomen. It has been there my whole life, but became more noticeable after having kids. It seemed that no matter how much weight I lost I still had this protruding belly! I was nervous the day of my first treatment. Mostly scared that it would hurt or be uncomfortable, but also that it wouldn’t work. Dr. Onir explained what the procedure would feel like and made me feel at ease. She also explained that while the procedure is effective, it could take several treatments in the lower belly area as it is a difficult spot, particularly for women. Once the device was attached, there was a strong suction as the fat squeezed up in the machine. There was heat at first that eventually turned cold. It felt strange, but not painful. It was not difficult to sit through the 45 minute session. Uzma, the Aesthetics Care Coordinator, checked in with me several times and continued to make sure that I was comfortable. Post treatment there was a little soreness, but nothing exceptional. No need for Tylenol or pain killers. In a couple of weeks I noticed that my pants were just slightly easier to button, so definitely a positive sign. I have two additional treatments scheduled and I’m looking forward to seeing the results in a month or two.

I wanted to share my review before my final results are even in! I am a tummy tuck patient who had my surgery at Spiegel Surgical Center with Dr. Shektman. First I met Dr. Spiegel who was very welcoming and informative. So important when making this kind of decision. Also the surgical staff at Spiegel is top. The morning of my surgery I was greeted by a wonderful surgical assistant "Pinky" I felt so safe and cared for. Uzma Husain the patient coordinator is amazing. From beginning to end she was there for me answering any questions making my experience very personal and safe. I highly recommend!

This practice is worth traveling to if you aren't local, and worth utilizing if you are. I found this man by chance on IG and realized he would be perfect for me. It's difficult and daunting to find anyone worth their ig following and I rolled the dice. Dr. Spiegel's kindness, demeanor and skill are both ultra professional and top notch and the staff are warm and very welcoming. I had 2 things done here so far and will return for any future needs. A special thank you to Uzma, who truly ïs wonderful and made everything easier, taking care of my needs with the same professionalism that seems to be the earmark of the practice. Thank you all.

The care and compassion from the staff at the Spiegel Center is unmatched starting from my care coordinator Uzma (an angel) to Dr Spiegel and Dr Hassanzadeh (the artists) as well as Riley and the rest of Newton Surgical Center make you feel so safe and supported. I consider them all to truly be a blessing and I’m grateful beyond words for everything they’ve done and continue to do and deserve to all be recognized for their incredible work. Thank you for everything from the core of my being. And for all future patients please know you are in the best hand's and have nothing to worry about :)

He is an artist, and as such the prices are resemblance of his work. He is the best in this area whatsoever.

Tami U., Yelp, 2/21/24

Dr. Spiegel was recommended to me by another doctor and I remain grateful for that recommendation. From the beginning, his staff, especially Uzma, 'managed' all the emotions, and concerns that come with any cosmetic procedure. Uzma's patience, kindness and especially her follow-ups made all the difference—100% positive! She exudes caring and 'walks her walk'...I needed short-term nursing support; she researched, asked questions and located the 'perfect' nurse for me! Needless to say, in addition to finding the right doctor, equal importance has to be placed on his staff. Uzma and The Spiegel Center fit the bill!

Dr. Spiegel was excellent as expected. A music lover just like me and we hit it off very well. What surprised me was how great of a coordinator Uzma Husain was. She went out of her way to make sure that I was okay from my injury and that I was safe and stable because I was very distraught. I needed someone to do that for me because I felt like the other places I was contacting weren't providing that essential service. She is my friend now and I am forever grateful for what she did for me. She even stayed up late to answer some of my questions when I was very very nervous and upset about what had happened. You will love the experience of having her as your coordinator. I can say that with 100% certainty. Also Juliana Wall the transition coordinator for the transgender patients is super super phenomenal as well her and uzma make a great team and I was so well cared for at the Spiegel center I was truly amazed.

Emma N., Yelp, 12/13/23

Uzma is the ultimate Patient Coordinator! I came into the practice and had a brow lift, Fraxel, IPL & Morpheus treatments with Dr. Jacob Tower - not only did my results look incredible...it was the attentiveness of Uzma who made me truly feel cared for. Uzma carefully walked me through my treatment plans (pre and post op) and would actively check-in with me to make sure I was doing well. Knowing that Uzma was part of my treatment and process was so interquel with my experience at The Spiegel Center. Uzma and Dr. Tower make a great team and The Spiegel Center is a state-of-the-art facility that makes you feel like your truly their #1 priority.

I am very pleased with The Speigel Center. My Care Coordinator Uzma was amazing, walking me through the process etc. Dr Speigel was professional and understanding. Can’t say enough about the entire team here.

C.M., Google, 10/14/23

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Spiegel and all of the staff at the Spiegel Center. My patient care coordinator Uzma helped me massively - she provided relevant resources, helped me organize insurance, set up surgery dates that fit my needs, and eased my concerns about the procedure and recovery. Dr. Spiegel has a clear expertise in his craft and I never lost confidence I was getting the best care possible. Thank you so much to everyone involved!

Love Dr. Spiegel and his incredible staff. He is the best in the business. I look FABULOUS​.

C.B., Google, 8/11/23

Incredible all around personal care and treatment. Dr. Spiegel does excellent work with unbelievable results. His staff keep you well informed and are so mild and approachable-as is Dr. Spiegel. I highly recommend the Spiegel Center for all your aesthetic needs from A to Z.

L.B., Yelp, 8/11/23

Dr. Spiegel’s work is exceptional. His staff is kind helpful devoted and approachable. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for plastic surgery not to mention various other beauty treatment options. 5 stars all around.

C.B., RateMD, 8/11/23

The staff is wonderful and highly professional wattmeter and supportive I was so happy with my surgery and experience and Dr. Spiegel is a highly specialized surgeon with skills that can’t be matched and I would recommend him to any one.

J.G., RateMD, 7/21/23

Dr. Spiegel and my care coordinator Uzma are the best! So kind, organized, considerate. They listened to my needs and understand everything I was going through. And the results are exactly what I was looking for! So glad I went to the Spiegal center! I am so happy.

Eli G., Google, 7/19/23

Dr. Spiegel, Uzma and the rest of the team are the most wonderful team one could ask for. Uzma is such a thoughtful, hardworking and responsive patient coordinator and I enjoyed communicating with her immensely. A phenomenal patient advocate!

Uzma is the best patient coordinator ever! She is super nice and sweet. Just went for my follow up appointment and my whole experience at The Spiegel Center was great!

Dr. Onir is the best of the best! I trust her completely and always leave incredibly happy with my results. My appointments are always such a pleasure. If you reside in the Boston area and are looking for experts who give you a truly personalized experience, The Spiegel Center/Dr. Onir are my recommendation!

Nicole C., Google, 6/15/23

I decided to do a neck-tite procedure with Dr. Spiegel, who was wonderful. During this process, his assistant, Eleanor Partee was my "spiritual, and psychological" companion through recovery, as much as she was the administrator of the procedure in terms of scheduling and arranging for medication. Having Elleanor there to answer my questions was so important to me, particularly in those first few days when waiting for swelling to subside, and you just need someone to talk you through. Ellen is like having your best friend at your doctor's office because she allays your fears, and let's you know what to expect. She is really an angel. Not only is she empathetic, but she's knowledgeable, efficient and everything you could want from a support person. Since I really hadn't done anything prior to meeting the Spiegel team, I didn't know what to expect, and having Ellen pre and post procedure, was a Godsend! Thank you Eleanor, for being you!

Jean C., Vitals, 3/14/23

Dr. Onir is a rare gem. Not only is she naturally talented -she has an artist’s eye- but in addition to her training in facial aesthetics she has a PhD in the biology of the face, so she understands the underlying muscular-structural realities. But what’s even rarer is that her high level of competence is combined with genuine conscientiousness and an individualized interest and care for her​ ​patients. I trust Onir’s judgment implicitly and wouldn’t trust anyone else with my face. Obey Onir! :-) You’ll be glad you did. To top it off, her practice has good “package “ deals and the staff are accommodating and pleasant.​ ​Always a great experience on every level.

Greg G., RealSelf, 5/16/23

I recently had the pleasure of working with Dr. Spiegel and his talented staff, and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience. From the moment I walked into their office, their friendly staff welcomed and cared for me. Dr. Spiegel was warm and approachable, listening to my concerns and thoroughly explaining the procedure at all stages of the process. Dr. Spiegel and his team went above and beyond to ensure I was comfortable. Their attention to detail was truly impressive, and I could tell that they were dedicated to achieving the best possible results for me. Thanks to their skill and expertise, I am thrilled with the outcome of my procedure. Dr. Spiegel's work was flawless, my recovery was very quick, and I feel more confident and comfortable than ever before. I would highly recommend Dr. Spiegel to anyone considering a procedure. He and his team are truly the best of the best, and I am so grateful for their exceptional care and expertise.

I had a great experience at The Spiegel Center and continue to have great experiences there. April is so kind and intelligent. She makes sure you fully understand everything about potential procedures. Shoilee at the front desk is extremely professional and is one of the kindest people I’ve met. Of course, Dr. Onir is amazing I highly recommend her!

Justin Lorenc, Google Reviews, 2/8/23

Dr.Spiegel and his team are absolutely incredible! They are so sweet and talented, they go above and beyond for their patients. I worked with Uzma, one of the Patient Coordinators, she helped me get everything I needed in time for my procedure - and this was during winter holidays!!! Dr.Spiegel is the only doctor I trust for any cosmetic procedure, he is an expert at what he does, truly the best!!! Recovery has been relatively low pain and easy. And, they maintain strong communication with their patients, before AND after. Wonderful experience!!

Lily Fitz, Google Reviews, 1/22/23

So happy with my results! Dr. Spiegel and his team are very talented. The coordinator who worked with me over many months was Uzma, and she is so sweet and supportive!

Dominique L, Google Reviews, 12/7/22

My experience at the Spiegel Center was unique. Dr. Spiegel was personable and remembered the ages of my children as well as what I was going to school for. He was down to earth and lighthearted while displaying absolute expertise and precision. His demeanor allows for patients to relax and know they are absolutely in the “best hands”. I was fortunate to be matched with Uzma, my patent coordinator. Uzma was kind and invested in my process. Her personality is a beautiful combination of assertiveness and kindness. Uzma is an expert in her knowledge of procedures and even providing support in preparation. It is clear that Dr. Spiegel, Uzma, and the Spiegel Center are doing something very right.

Stephanie Ncala, RealSelf, 11/9/22

I am a newcomer to Men’s aesthetics as a consumer. As I take increased care of myself and recognize the inevitable process of aging I thought I might check into a bit of freshening up. I had 2 primary goals 1) look a bit less rugged and aged - maybe a bit more polished, and 2) to have anything done not be overtly noticeable. The Spiegel Center understood these requests FAR better than I anticipated. I am more than shocked with the success of the work and I am more than thrilled with my results! I never felt I had a bad self image or was needing a lot I’d work; I am ‘fine’ with aging. Seeing wrinkles start as I approach 50 was not a challenge for me. Seeing a bit of loss of collagen in my cheeks was ok too. However, with a small bit of help from April, Dr. Onir and the entire astounding and warm Spiegel Team, I have a fresh look that people are literally drawn to. My signs of age aren’t gone, they are lessened, I am polished and am told I am markedly more handsome. I am wildly impressed. I feel I now have an edge up on my peers and start my day just that much more confident knowing I look ‘that much better’ thanks to the work of The Spiegel’s. They are now my go-to male aesthetics office. If you are considering getting an edge on your peers, give The Spiegel Center your business. You won’t be disappointed.

Brian Miller. Yelp, 2/22/22

I recently got two treatments done with Dr.Onir, and came up an amazing results. April was the one to helped me with all coordination with Doctor and detail confirmation, she is super patient and professional that made me felt warm and comfortable. I would definitely consider to come back for the future needs, Thanks again for all the great works!

Fiona Zhang, Google Reviews, 2/21/22

When I went into the Spiegel Center I was a little nervous, thankfully the staff put me at ease! I was worried about the results of my surgery, but the end result was incredible! Spiegel knows exactly what he is doing when he is at work!

Ava Fronko, Google Reviews, 1/6/20

My treatment with Dr. Spiegel was amazing. He made me feel very comfortable and supportive through my Procedure. The patient coordinator, Uzma Husain was very sweet and kind lady. She answered all my questioned and was getting back to me as soon possible when I had questions for my procedure. Dr. Spiegel office made me feel welcome and safe. I am glad I was able to find a place where I was treated with comfort and happy with my overall treatment. Spiegel is where you need to be!

Nahida Sayed, RealSelf, 4/27/23

Spiegel Review The Spiegel Center is Top Notch! Not only is Dr Spiegel a talented surgeon with an artistic eye for creating an esthetically pleasing look. He is incredibly patient, has a wonderful bedside manner and takes extra time to answer any and all questions. He listen compassionately to fears and apprehensions and puts the client at ease. In my case I had to travel a distance to see him and stay in a hotel. Dr Spiegel made time to come in and see me on a Saturday to check my face. He also personally called me following the procedure to check on me. What an amazing man and surgeon. In addition to Dr. Spiegels’s excellent approach to his patients. I would be remiss not to mention my patient coordinator, Carol. I had countless phone calls with her and she gently guided me through the entire process. Carol was my emotional rock! She was there to lift me up when I had fears or doubts without fail and celebrate with me when I was joyous. In addition, she was very knowledgeable about the procedures that I was interested in and was able to advise me based on Dr Spiegels recommendations. She was glad to pass any questions or concerns directly to Dr. Spiegel for consultation and responded to such questions in record time. Carol is just a gem. I had the buccal fat removal, neck liposuction and a facelift to remove my chubby cheeks, sagging face, and jowels. Within two weeks I could tell that the results were going to be amazing. In fact, I was over the moon with my results. I actually feel comfortable when people look at me now, especially when people look at my profile, which used to bother me so much that I would turn away to avoid being seen. I feel proud of my looks now and am able to look in the mirror with pride. In closing, this was the best decision I ever made for myself! I am thrilled that I chose to use The Spiegel Center to perform this life changing procedure for me. If you choose The Spiegel center you will be amazed with your results! Mine are still getting better over time! Thank you Dr Spiegel and Carol from the bottom of my heart.

I had a great experience here with Dr. Spiegel. He did a great job. Uzma Husain was amazing as well. She made sure all my paperwork was in by the deadline.

Katherine Vogel, Google Reviews, 8/6/21

My experience with Dr. Spiegel and his staff has been wonderful. They made me well cared for every step of the way. I had a little scare where one of the procedures I requested had not been authorized by the date of my pre op appointment, and Dr. Spiegel's staff rushed to get everything cleared with my insurance in the nick of time. I'm loving my results and I don't think I could have picked a better doctor to have handled such an important procedure.

Jakota Burdell, Google Reviews, 7/26/21

The folks at the Spiegel Center have been awesome. Dr.Spiegel was gentle and great with my procedure. My coordinator Eleanor was awesome when it came to explaining the process, payment and helped me post op. Definitely recommend them!

Joshua Sanchez, Google Reviews, 6/2/21

So pleased with my decision to go to The Spiegel Center. Uzma and Dr. Onir have been wonderful in planning treatments, education on which treatments would provide the desired results, and performing the treatments. Dr. Onir listens to your goals and assesses your current condition and then recommends which products and treatments are best suited to provide results. She's also great at letting you know about procedures and products that you may not have heard of or know you need. Everyone that you interact with at The Spiegel Center is warm and genuinely wants to assist you in being your best self. There is no such thing as a magic wand, but there may just be a magic needle. Can't wait to go back for my follow up visits. :)

Marialena Bernard, RealSelf, 5/17/21

An excellent experience beginning to end. Dr. Spiegel, Dr. Shektman and my patient coordinator Uzma Husein were amazing. Uzma was a rockstar keeping in constant contact. First meeting with Dr. Spiegel was great and Dr. Shektman is a compassionate, highly skilled surgeon who I would highly recommend.

Jamie S., Google Reviews, 4/23/21

I just wanted to say that my surgical coordinator Eleanor has been the most amazing and helpful person I could of ever asked for. She has gone above and beyond for me. I wish I knew how I could repay her, for now I guess a good review is a start. I am so grateful for all of her help! She is an angel in human form.

Sublime Robin, Google Reviews 4/19/21

From the moment i contacted The Spiegel Center through email i felt like i had new friends with the exact skills and expertise i needed to get me to my new goals in life. As a profoundly hard of hearing person it isn't easy for many people to have full conversations in email form , answer all your questions promptly, and take care of you the same as they would someone they could talk to on the phone. But patient coordinator Carole did just that. Probably the best and most important customer service over the course of 2 to 3 months I have ever received. And Dr. Spiegel made himself available constantly to answer the questions i would send Carole and guide me with great confidence, experience, and an artists eye to help me make the best decisions. This kind of access to such an experienced Surgeon is very rare. AND the fact that he is also an ENT made his skill set especially attractive for my needs and goals and safety. I also wish I could remember every staff person's name as they were all 5 star caliber employees at what they did and how they treated me. I would highly recommend anyone seeking repair or rejuvenation facial work to seriously consider DR SPIEGEL & THE SPIEGEL CENTER on the top of their list. Especially if you have special needs like I do and need extra care and accommodation and not feel like you are on a treadmill of just anyone who walked in the door. I can't wait for the reveal! The easiest 5 STAR rating I have every given! JD

I had a great experience at the Spiegel Center. Carole and Dr. Onir made it such an enjoyable and personal experience. I didn't feel like 'just another patient'. They made me feel so comfortable and addressed any concerns I had. Carole was so welcoming despite me being nervous. I will be back to visit my friends at the Spiegel center soon!

Talia DeLuca, Google Reviews, 4/7/21

Dr. Spiegel did incredible work on me to fix really bad surgery done by someone else, much harder to do than starting from scratch, and there's the mark of a master: I'll happily drive five hours each way to see him. As the aging process continues i rely on injectables (botox and filler) to keep my results at their best and, as expected, both Dr. Spiegel & Dr. Onir have an amazing technique that produces optimal results with a minimum of pain. Because he's the one who did my surgery, Dr. Spiegel does my injectable. He really listens, he knows how to work with my particular set of circumstances, and offers honest guidance as to the best way to achieve and maintain my goals. As you know, or can imagine if you're considering injectables for the first time, the "gain" does come with some pain, but Dr. Spiegel has a magic touch and makes the whole experience just about "ouchless"...well worth that long, long drive. As in most doctors' offices the tone is set from the top, and Dr. Spiegel's top-notch skills, his sincere desire to help his patients achieve their goals, and his warm and helpful personality are channeled through to create the environment in the entire Spiegel center at every step of the way.. Contributing to the wonderful experience are his amazing angels, the Patient Care Coordinators, Carole, Eleanor and Uzma. Which one of these terrific women are "on duty" depends on which day of the week you have your appointment, but they are all the best at what they do, and they're genuinely warm and caring people as well. They are an essential part of the Spiegel Center team, navigating you through the seemingly mundane but often complicated process of scheduling, advice on accommodations for out-of-town surgery patients, financing, and they most definitely complete the Center's endeavor to ensure your feeling cared for and accompanied from start to finish and even after. I've worked with each of them, they really are your advocates and they'll hold your hand throughout your journey.

Not sure where to begin on this review but if I could rate The Spiegel Center 10 stars I would! Dr. Spiegel and his team are absolutely fantastic. He went above and beyond to meet my expectations and I will be forever grateful for his service. The patient coordiator Carole was so wonderful to work with, from my first consultation to post surgery - she was so accomodating, went out of her way to give me the ultimate experience and has been ever so kind to follow up post surgery to see how I am doing. Thank you so much - Dr. Lee, Dr. Onir and team for your kindess and compassion! You will not be disappointed choosing Dr. Spiegel :)

The Spiegel Center truly is top notch! I had the specific pleasure of working with Uzma Husain as my patient coordinator and from start to finish, from my insurance battle to the day of my surgery she was there with me helping to bring my surgical goals to reality! Dr Spiegel and his staff did an amazing job making me feel comfortable, cared for, and confident that my results will be beautiful! I'm still in my recovery but it has been smooth and I'm healing faster than anticipated thanks to their care! The results already are astounding! I cannot wait for the final results once fully healed! Thank you Dr Spiegel, Uzma, and everyone else at the Spiegel Center! Your reputation is well earned!

Pre or post covid, this facility is top notch from the minute the door opens and you are warmly welcomed by the Spiegel team front desk staff to your care with Dr. Onir or Dr. Spiegel both fantastic with great results and even as you are walked to the front door when your appointment is complete. Highly recommend this facility!!

Stephanie B, Yelp, 10/13/20

This place is like heaven on earth. I felt like a queen when I was there. Everyone is so great! From the receptionist all the way up to the doctors. I worked with Eleanor as my consultant, and she is very professional yet very personable. I would highly recommend The Spiegel Center. I did my homework before going to the center but now I have first-hand experience with them. I had multiple procedures and every single one exceeded my expectations. I have always had self-esteem issues and before struggled with deciding to have plastic surgery. It was by far the best decision I have ever made. I wish I had done it sooner. Dr Spiegel is worth every penny. You don’t want to shop around when it comes to your face. He is great at what he does!! Dr Onir I also worked with, and she too knows her stuff. She even reached out by text later that evening just to check in with me to see how I was doing after having fillers and Botox. Dr Shektman was equally fantastic and I love what he did. He made a recommendation as far as his opinion on my breast surgery as and I am so happy I took his advice. They are perfectly beautiful. I don’t ever leave reviews but how could I not when my experience literally changed my life. I did it for myself, not anyone else and it was a life changer!! I hope my review helps someone who is struggling with whether to have plastic surgery and who to have perform.

I can't say how nice it is to be able to see my reflection during the day and actually be happy with how I look. I could not thank everybody here enough for how they have improved my life. Dr. Spiegel does amazing work and everybody here makes you feel welcome and safe. I actually started crying in the car after my consultation when my surgery consultant Eleanor told me that this would actually work for me and my insurance would cover everything. I would highly recommend this place for anybody who needs something done, whether it be a major surgery like mine or just a minor thing to help boost your confidence. :)

Phoebe Kelley, Google Reviews 2/12/20

While the service may be seen as expensive, in my opinion, well worth it. I couldn't be more satisfied so far with my results. Each day my results seem to improve, which is impressive. I'm told that recovery varies dependent upon the person. If I had to complain, my only complaint would be that the recovery was a bit rough. I had a forehead contour, rhinoplasty, lip lift and breast augmentation. Approximately two weeks after surgery I was able to return to work and cover my bruises with makeup. The bulk of my bruising was gone within three weeks. Its been two and a half months and I still have some numbness in my nose and the top of my head, however this is completely manageable and gets a bit better everyday. I had some reservations right before surgery about if the expense was worth it. If I had to choose, I'd do it all again.

Dr. Spiegel helped me figure out what procedure I wanted without pressuring me into anything I didn't want, and the results are fantastic! It's such a relief to finally be happy with my face. I was a little anxious while still healing, and Dr. Spiegel was very patient with me. He took extra time to check on my progress and reassured me that everything was normal. Now I look great, and I'm so happy I went to him!

Laphria, RealSelf, 1/11/20

Dr. Spiegel helped me figure out what I needed and what I wanted without pressuring me into anything I didn't want. I can finally breathe properly for the first time in my life, and my nose looks fantastic. I was pretty anxious about having surgery because I had an experience at a different hospital where it was almost impossible for me to contact anyone on that surgical team, even when complications arose. Dr. Spiegel handled everything perfectly. His office gave me several ways to keep in touch, and Dr. Spiegel himself was kind and patient. My recovery was perfectly normal, but he was still always willin
