Advanced Techniques in Facial Feminization Surgery

Facial feminization surgery is a group of advanced surgical techniques designed to change the appearance of the face from that of a man to that of an attractive woman. Feminization procedures include scalp advancement, cranioplasty, orbital contouring, lip lift, jaw and chin reduction, reduction of the Adam’s apple, as well as more common surgical interventions such as rhinoplasty, brow lift, cheek augmentation, and aging face surgeries such as blepharoplasty and facelift. In this session Dr. Spiegel will present tips from his 20 year experience with thousands of facial feminization procedures and will reveal ways to incorporate his techniques into facial plastic surgery for all women.

Facial Analysis: Not the Golden Ratio

Surgeons study a series of mathematical ratios as guidelines for the creation of beautiful features. The golden ratio is among the most popular ways that plastic surgeons judge beauty and determine surgical outcomes. But, do these ratios work? In this talk Dr. Spiegel will show you why the ratios you’ve learned are not as golden as you believe and why they may actually be interfering with achieving excellent surgical results. You’ll also learn a completely different approach to facial analysis that may change how you approach every patient you see.

Perfect Lips: Brightness not Size

For several years now lips have been a huge part of facial aesthetic practice. But, should they be so huge? Does size really matter? Dr. Spiegel will reveal his methods for lip analysis and show you how achieving brightness around the mouth trumps size for beautiful results. Learn tips and techniques for lip lifting and natural augmentation.​

Beauty,Gender, and Appearance

Dr. Spiegel will bring his more than 20 years of experience and research to a discussion of why men and women look different, how aging affects your perceived gender, and the origin of stereotypes such as “men get better looking with age while women just look older”. You’ll learn why 500 years of ratios and measurements in plastic surgery are a dead end, why the golden ratio is wrong, and why light and shadow are keys to beauty. This 1-2 hour lecture will have you captivated and leave you with a deep understanding of so much about facial appearance.

Undoing the signs of youth

Much of the time we think of plastic surgery as ways to undo the signs of aging by eliminating wrinkles, sagging, and atrophy. However, whether you gave have a gauged ear, undesired tattoo, facial piercing, shaved eyebrows, or other sign of a rebellious period of individuality there are ways to undo the signs of youth as well. Dr. Spiegel discusses tips for getting back to you without the accoutrements!
