Hi :) Dr. Spiegel and his staff were amazing! The surgery itself (anesthesia, postop, etc) was streamlined and uneventful, among the easiest surgeries ever; no postop nausea or vomiting. Doctor Spiegel is surprisingly warm, friendly, and funny, which I didn’t expect. The staff was amazing and attentive. My patient coordinator, Uzma, was so wonderful and helpful; a calming, competent presence guiding me through the whole experience. :) <3

Prior to my procedure, I had a significantly crooked face, similar to the journalist Betsy Woodruff, and Dr Spiegel was able to straighten my face significantly. It went from something that bothered me tremendously to something that I really don’t think about anymore, which is nothing short of a miracle, lol.

The only thing I would probably wish was different would be that it would’ve been helpful to know that due to all of the nerve endings by our mouth and lower face, this surgery can be VERY challenging. Because we experience a lot of the world through our mouths (coffee, beer, food, speaking, kissing, etc), the healing was quite harrowing. I am still so grateful and happy to have had it done; it’s been absolutely life-changing. However, I wish I knew that this surgery is really intense and a LOT to handle.

I travelled from Virginia to Boston to have mandible count outing 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.Everyone 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 ferminization 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 ferminization surgeries).

I hated my square chin and was super self conscious about having an Adam’s apple so I decided to get Mandible Contouring & a Trachea shave! I did so much research on Real Self & YouTube to find the perfect doctor that’s when I came across Jeffrey Spiegel!

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

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!
