“Dr. Spiegel,
Just wanted to report how my first job interview went after my forehead/cheek/lip procedure.
I had to out myself to the recruiter because my new state ID had not arrived in the mail from the DMV. The recruiter looked at the (old male) passport I had provided and said, “Well, your paperwork is in order, except that the receptionist gave me the wrong person’s ID.”
I had to tell her no, that was what I used to look like.
She went quiet for a moment, looked down at the passport and back up at me. With a dead serious expression, she pushed her glasses down to the tip of her nose, and said, “YOU are a LOVELY woman. I would never in a million years have guessed you were ever anything but.” She went on to say that she would feel completely confident sending me to any company to interview.
I am so happy with my results. They are subtle enough that I am still recognizable to the people who love me. It’s the people who don’t know me who react so differently. Store clerks, people on the street, and especially children, who have no filter and used to routinely gawk. Now I’m treated just like any other woman and it feels terrific.
Thanks to you and your team, in just a few weeks my quality of life has improved drastically. I am so grateful!” – Anonymous Patient

Please pass along my thank you to everyone that worked with me over the last two weeks. Everything went better than I thought it would. Everyone was very supportive and kind. Those little things mean a lot especially when recovering from any type of surgery. – M.

It was so great to see Kelly and Dr. Spiegel on Saturday. While this was the third time that I have been at one of Dr. Spiegel’s presentations frankly this may have been his best yet and if I had not already been a client I would be one now. As I mentioned to a number of people who throughout my 2 days there who came up to me and said “wow” I could not be more delighted. It may have taken 4 years to be sure the kids were in okay financial shape to finally “un-postpone” everything, but it was so worth waiting for. As you could see the incision is even only 8 weeks in almost invisible to the naked eye. The recovery was a piece of cake (although I am glad to no longer be keeping my forehead wrapped at night) and everything could not have gone better. It acceded my wildest hopes. Tenfold. I hope the others you spoke with after the session take the step. They will never regret it. – Ricki

It’s been 5 weeks and I am pretty much healed. The only thing left is the teeniest of a bruise on my left cheek, and it is almost all the way faded.
I think the results are great, and want to thanks you all again! The two procedures I had were really not bad at all to have there in the office. I am glad I had them there, as it was much more of a calming supportive environment than if I had them done in the hospital. Please let Dr. Spiegel know I am so grateful for his expertise and artistry. And let him know I think you girls are awesome! He has the best staff! – Beth

Wanted to give you an update. My eyes are great, no complications, so good in fact I can hardly find the incisions and it’s two weeks tomorrow! The suture technique was perfect and left no marks. Color me thrilled! –B

Dearest Ivy,
You are so very welcome. You have quite literally changed my life, and the kindness and care that you showed towards me is something that I truly carry with me every day. I have a big Christmas party on Saturday and will most definitely send you a few photos. Lots to tell you too! Much love and hugs – Emma

“Thanks for everything. Passing without question or concern is wonderful for my self confidence. I have been living 24/7 for a month now. Dreams do come true.” – Giselle

“I am very pleased with where I am in my life. Transition has brought me the fulfillment of being a woman and the confidence I could never hold onto as a man. I am so pleased with all of your work and especially appreciate your doing the neck lift last March. I will stay in touch and wish you the greatest fulfillment from your career” – Ginger

“My eyes are beautiful. I love my nose. Wow…… You are all the greatest as far as I am concerned. Spiegel girls forever!!!!! Who needs Z or O???? I miss you all and am referring other girls to you who are in admiration of your work. Thank you for your support and caring.” – Courtney

“Sorry if I’m going overboard attaching so many pictures, but I can’t help but be thrilled with the results – Dr. Spiegel should be proud of his work, I get asked all the time who did my surgery. Thanks so much for everything, everyone that knew me before ffs is absolutely stunned by the outcome. The amount of attention I get when I’m out and about sometimes is unreal.” – Christina
