Procedure: Facelift

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.

Dr. Spiegel and his staff exceptional professionals and lovely, caring people. Every aspect of my procedures and subsequent care was thoroughly reviewed and I felt confident that I was in highly capable hands. I had a full facelift with liposuction under my chin, and fat grafting in all the right places =) I quite literally look 20 years younger!

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.)

I trust Kayla Allard, Laser Tech & Medical Esthetician, with all my skin care concerns! I had a facial and a couple of IPL sessions and she made me feel so at ease. Skin is an investment and I'm confident that I'm going to see very positive results. I've received so many compliments on my skin and I'm almost 40 but everyone thinks I'm still in my 20s!

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! I would recommend the center to anyone considering a procedure, they were so helpful and understanding about my skin issues too!

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.

Procedure: Microneedling

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!

Procedure: Microneedling

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!

I recently had to have a growth removed from my face and needed a plastic surgen. After calling a few others I finally settled on the Spiegel Center in Newton, and I'm so glad I did! The place is beautiful and clean and everyone couldn't be friendlier, from Carly at the front desk to Carol who runs behind the scenes, also Kat and Alissa were especially nice as well. Dr. Spiegel did such a wonderful job on my face my friends compliment his work, and he is as nice as everyone else in the office. My overall experience and value is an easy 5 star and highly recommended!!

I had three moles that were on my back that were bothering me. Dr. Spiegel took me in and was very nice and even though I knew nothing about plastic surgery and stuff like that, he didn’t act like I was stupid. He explained everything and did it the same day. I even got to see a video of my moles being chopped off after. 10 out of 10 will Do again. Also you get free mints.

I was born with a very cute birth mark on my right cheek that I used to be quite fond of up until the last 8 years or so. I actually used to pencil it in sometimes to make it more dramatic. As I grew older, my birth mark became not as cute. It started to protrude more and starting losing its color. I know call it a birth mole and was not going to wait for hair to start growing out of it so I decided to get it removed. That said, included in the price was a couple of other little things on my face that Dr. Spiegel removed as well. Also, it was an hour and a half drive from my house to Dr. Spiegel's office, he did the procedure the same day as the consultation so I would not have to drive back there again. I really appreciated that. I had a bandaid on my forehead where I had a spot lasers and a small bandage on the mole that was surgically removed along with dissolving stitches. I was told to let them fall off on their own so that's what I did. The bandaid on my forehead fell off a few days ago and the small bandage where the stitches were just fell off this morning. It looks great! I apologize for the shine in the picture, but I have neosporin and scar cream on it.

A little over a year ago I was in a horrible car accident and suffered from facial trauma. At 21 years old, my concerns should be covering a pimple with make up, not hiding major scars. I was devastated and would avoid public places because of my anxiety/concerns of my scars. Dr. Spiegel is a very skilled surgeon! He and his team have gone above and beyond to make me feel welcomed. I had no idea walking in what could be done to minimize my scars appearances, but Dr. Spiegel and his team walked me through the steps educating me on the best course of treatment for my desired results. The IPL laser sessions took the redness appearance of my scars away, and the Microneedling/Botox injections sessions have been working to make the scarred areas more even and level with my skin. Dr. Spiegel has done a wonderful job restoring my facial appearance, as well as my confidence! I would highly recommend Dr. Spiegel and his team to anyone seeking scar revision treatment!

Dr. Spiegel and his staff are outstanding! I went to Dr. Spiegel for facial scar revision as I had old scars that were very bothersome and noticeable (on cheek and near eye/temple). In the past, with other doctors, the scars had been treated but improvements were modest and not lasting. Dr. Spiegel successfully performed scar revision and the results have been great. The final scars are still healing but they already look better than before and they blend into the natural lines on my face. Also, his staff is awesome and very accommodating and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Spiegel!

I found The Spiegel Center online and after tons of research, decided to make an appointment. I have had extremely difficult skin issues in the past and Dr. Spiegel and his staff made me feel very comfortable and were compassionate towards my desire for some normalcy. I am in the process of acne scar excision, revision and dermabrasion. I am extremely pleased with the outcome thus far. I am only partially through but have the utmost confidence in Dr. Spiegel to achieve desired results and the self esteem I've never had before..I am looking forward to completion. Dr. Onir Spiegel also recently gave me Xeomin injections for my "11's" (frown lines), they disappeared in 2 days, relatively no pain, daily minor headaches gone, extremely affordable and made me very happy..Kaite, a smiling face always, also helped me feel welcomed and comfortable, she suggested great skin care products as well. I highly recommend The Spiegel Center and will continue to visit the center long after my corrective surgeries are over. Love this place, products and the staff.

From the moment I first called their office with questions regarding cosmetic procedures, to the moment I left their office after my first initial consult and treatment. I was treated respectfully and so kindly and well informed by all the staff. They are very professional and so knowledgeable. Doctor Onir Spiegel explained my treatment plan in detail and was so sweet, she had a wonderful bedside manner but also seemed to have a great deal of knowledge and experience in her field. She was gentle and so compassionate to me as this was my first cosmetic procedure and I was very nervous. I am so happy I decided to choose the Spiegel Center and will be using this practice for all my cosmetic needs.

Following my entirely successful full face lift in 2009, I've continued to maintain the result with a combination of fillers, botox, microneedling, and adopting Skin Medica skin care products. Looking at my post-surgery picture, I'm stunned by the improvement in my new face after 7 years. Dr. Onir's and Dr. Speigel's recommendations and skillful techniques keep me look better than ever. I'm also especially enthusiastic about Skin Medica skin care products recommended by Katie. After decades of wasting money on non-performing and overpriced department store junk (including major heavily advertised national brands), I'll use Skin Medica until I die! As always the staff is unfailingly cordial and accommodating and I've yet to experience any wait past my appointment time

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Onir with fillers and Botox . I have seen her twice for tear trough filler that was very difficult to treat and Dr Onir did an amazing job and I’m so happy because I’m not so self conscious anymore . I’ve been to a few people and have had problems with puffiness under my eyes for months and had to get filler dissolved until now . Dr. Onir has amazing expertise and skill and I am soooo happy I found the Spiegel Center. I have also had fillers in my temples , cheeks and jowls as well as Botox . I am so happy with my results . The search is over , I feel so confident going to Dr. Onir . Thankyou for making me look much more rested /youthful and looking still like myself .

I was obsessing over the lines around my mouth, which thanks to Dr. Onir, has been remedied ;) After doing some research online, I decided to visit the Spiegal Center. Uzma, their patient coordinator, made it soooo easy to get in, and her gentle demeanor helped me to feel very comfortable there. This was actually my first venture into "touch-ups, and I'm thrilled it was with this office. On the fillers: mouth area, temples, and tear troughs -- Mouth: Dr. Onir totally smoothed out the lines around my mouth. If you're on the fence about getting fillers here, it's a no brainer. -- Temples: if you're anything like me, the idea of fillers in your temples seems way strange and/or unnecessary...well it's most definitely NOT. I didn't realize how hollowed out I was -- and I only just turned 33! This area, if she suggests it - DO IT! You'll be amazed by the difference it'll make in your appearance -- wayyyy worth it and probably the area that made the most overall difference in my appearance. --Tear troughs: this area is tricky, may not be for everyone. It's a super sensitive area, so swelling and bruising should be expected. I was freaking out at first, but things calmed down after a couple of weeks. I've always had dark circles ( they're hereditary), and was constantly being asked if I was tired. Now it's the opposite - I'm told "you look well rested ;)" To sum up my experience, it was great! I'm very happy with my results and soo happy I came in. I expect to be back, and I would totally recommend Dr. Onir to friends & family (already have my mom looking to get in!). Dr. Onir is wonderful, she has a great eye, big on looking natural -- you'll be in good hands!!!

Last year In May/June I initially found The Spiegel Center as I was interested in getting a few procedures done and wanted to know the average costs of things such as a small chin implant, cheekbone implants, eyebrow lift and and lip filler. (Wanted that Hollywood look) So I had my consultation with Dr. Onir regarding the lip filler and eyebrows and I was blown away! she has an amazing bedside manner, extremely warm and engaging and very knowledgeable. She discussed with me all the types of fillers and Botox out there (because there are a lot!) and she explained how each one was different and why she would suggest filler A over B. Being new to Injectables I was terrified as I’ve seen so many botched jobs and didn’t want to come out looking like a deer in headlights or have duck lips but she made me feel so at ease within an instant and didn’t push me to do any procedure I didn’t want to do. I opted to get some filler in my cheeks and chin, (restylane lift), plump up my lips as well using Restylane Refyne and Botox to relax and slightly lift my eyebrows. The results were amazing! She listened to ALL of my concerns and comments and used her skilled hand to make my lips look naturally plump and just beautiful!!! Dr. Onir is a master at her craft, she is a true artist and I refuse to go to anyone else. The places she injected the Botox lifted exactly where I wanted to lift, as if she was in my head and knew exactly the look I wanted. She takes the time to listen and understand your desires. Anytime I had a question or concern during recovery, I could text her and send photos so she could see what I’m seeing. And she would respond quickly and genuinely as she is concerned and truly cares about her patients. She made me feel very assured and actually cared about instead of a doctor who will just fill you in, numb you up and off you go. ...A few months later I went for a touch up of Botox and filler as I now wanted my lips to look a bit juicer (because I loved the first results so much) and yet again, she made it happen and look the most natural of lips. Unfortunately quite a few months have gone by and I have not returned due to time constraints and lack of funds to keep up the maintenance work, but as soon as I have some down time I will be back!

he staff are all incredibly kind, warm and helpful. They offer you beverages, make sure you are comfortable, attend to your every need and are knowledgeable about any questions or concerns you may have. I felt very well taken care of. Dr. Onir is wonderful. I get Botox & Juvederm regularly but Dr. Onir is the only practitioner who injected me with no pain at all whatsoever. Usually the lips & eye areas are sensitive but Dr. Onir somehow manages to do it in a way so that you don’t feel a thing. She even sent me a personal text the day after my treatment just to check in and see how I was doing. Katie & Taylor we’re friendly, personable and did a wonderful job as well. Dr. Spiegel is very calm & composed and I felt very confident and impressed by him. This is definitely the place you want to go.

If you’re like me and your heavy eyelids and furrowed brow make you look like you want to murder someone when you’re actually happy, perhaps you’ve considered cosmetic surgery. I was convinced I needed blepharoplasty (upper and lower eyelid surgery) and a brow lift, or perhaps even a face lift. Luckily, I met Dr. Spiegal and Dr. Onir. They spent a long time talking to me and detailing my options. And after listening patiently to my request for a facelift… they said no. They explained that I wasn’t a really surgery candidate and I could get better results with Botox and Voluma filler. This is a sign of a great practice. They’re not motivated purely by money, but rather, what is best for their patients and what will give them the most natural results. I have no doubt there are other doctors in practice that would have done exactly what I asked and I would have walked out broke, and looking like a cat/human hybrid. I saw Dr. Onir for Botox and Voluma injections and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I don’t look like I’ve had any work done, I just look a lot better! I have to say, Dr. Onir is truly an artist. She’s also incredibly warm, funny, and just generally a joy to be around. While Botox and Voluma are amazing products, they are only as good as the doctor using them. Any doctor can give you injections or fillers, just like any artist can pick up some paint and a paint brush. But there’s a big difference between Botecelli’s “Birth of Venus” and “Dogs Playing Poker”. If you want your face to look like a masterpiece, you need to go to the masters. And I consider these doctors to be masters.

I've been going to Dr. Spiegal for sometime now for fillers. A few friends of mine have had more extensive work done. I'm very, very friendly with lots of the plastic surgeons in the Boston area.  I have to say that I've been incredibly satisfied with Dr. Spiegal! I particularly appreciate his honest "non- cookie" cutter approach. I'm scheduling more surgical work this year with Dr. Spiegal because he has EARNED my trust with fillers and by observing his surgical work first hand with my good friends. If your looking for a Dr. to help you present your best self and grow old feeling good in your skin... Dr Spiegal is my recommendation. Can't wait for my before and after pics!!!

I not only love the results I didn’t feel I thing. The doctors give you a cool roller before hand that acts as a numbing agent and I didn’t mind the injections one bit. I had no bruising or pain. It’s a week later and the results are even better! I highly recommend the Spiegel Center and doctors here. I can’t wait to come back again!
