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.
Procedure: Fat Freezing/ Body Contouring
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.Read review on RealSelf.com
Procedure: Hair Reduction
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!Read review on Google
Procedure: Hair Reduction
I contemplated getting laser hair removal for quiet a while due to fear of pain! I came in for a consultation with Kayla and ended up doing a treatment the same day. The staff and the personnel made it so easy and comfortable and Kayla was superb! The facilities are gorgeous, clean and modern. Would absolutely recommend the Spiegel Center to anyone.Read review on Google
Procedure: Hair Reduction
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!!Read review on Google
Procedure: Hair Restoration

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!Read review on Google

Procedure: Tummy Tuck

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!Read review on Google
