I LOVE MY RESULTS WITH DR. BRANDY! – After having liposuction surgery at The Skin Center by Dr. Brandy, I have to say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made and my only regret is that I waited so long to do it! I am writing this post because I know how nervous I was about making the right decision just as anyone reading this is. After meeting Dr. Brandy during my consult and seeing the before and after photos, I was convinced this was the surgeon for me. He knows what he is doing and his confidence was very reassuring. If I have to point out a flaw, it would have to be that his comments could be a little short. I understand he is a busy surgeon so it was fine with me.
I liked how one nurse was assigned to me and she was the one to return my calls. It was nice to talk to someone who was familiar with my surgery and my recovery. Overall, this was a great experience, it really has changed the way I feel about myself. I can finally wear the clothes I want to wear without feeling self-conscious about my body. Thank you Dr Brandy and staff.
Dominic A. Brandy, MD is a Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon – I am Mary Diangelis, RN, and I have worked as a nurse of Dr. Brandy's for more than 25 years. In order to meet the rating requirements, and to be fair to this forum, I have given Dr. Brandy a neutral rating. In response to the post regarding Dr. Brandy's board certification I wanted to share the following:
Dr. Brandy is always disheartened to learn that a patient is dissatisfied with the outcome of their surgery. Choosing to have cosmetic surgery is a big decision and when your personal expectations do not match the result, we understand that it can be disappointing. At The Skin Center when surgical outcomes do not meet patient expectations, we strive to maintain open communication to achieve patient satisfaction.
I do want to clarify that Dr. Brandy is board certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS). A board certified cosmetic surgeon is certified exclusively in cosmetic surgery which focuses on enhancing a person's appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Cosmetic surgery is often only a small part of any of the residency training programs for many of the core specialties such as plastic surgery, dermatology, otolaryngology, gynecology, maxillofacial surgery and others. For this reason many of these doctors that have a special interest in cosmetic surgery often go on to become certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
Great First Botox Experience – I'm a 37 year old woman who had deep furrows between her eyes thanks to bad eyesight and a lifelong love of books. I thought Botox would be an easy, painless way to get rid of my permanently worried-looking facial wrinkles. (I like easy & painless) The Skin Center had a great promotion going on, and the facility is comfortable and relaxing. The procedure takes 5 minutes, and I could see things smoothing out after a few days. As part of the service I went back a week later for some additional injections...apparently everyone's muscles respond a little differently. They were very concerned that I was completely satisfied...it's nice to be treated like such a valued customer! I definitely plan on going back for further treatments. I would highly recommend Botox at The Skin Center.

NOT BOARD CERTIFIED – He is not board certified!I had breast augmentation.The first surgery he made one bigger and lower ,tried to correct second with complications.Now I have a deep dark ugly scar and it now sits HIGHER then the other.He was rude when i was upset i spent 8000.00 to be disfigured,My breasts look like a frankenstien.BEWARE
Tummy Tuck with Dr. Brandy at The Skin Center Medical Spa – I am the mother of three small children (7 yrs., 5yrs, and 14 months old). My kids were quite large (all delivered by c-section) and as a result I had an excessive amount of loose skin around my belly. I began looking at tummy tuck surgery, but kept putting it off thinking it was impossible to do and still care for my kids. After much contemplation (and many recommendations) I hesitantly made an appointment to see Dr. Dominic Brandy for an abdominoplasty consult. Needless to say I was very worried about having surgery (especially with a baby who at the time was just barely one year old) but I knew I really needed to take care of my body, I was really uncomfortable with the way I looked and felt.
During the consult, Dr. Brandy walked me through the entire procedure and recovery. He very clearly told me what to expect before, during and after the surgery as well as gave me realistic expectations of my results. Dr. Brandy told me that he has modified the technique for a tummy tuck so the level of discomfort is minimized. Of all of the doctors I had visited, I really felt comfortable with him and decided to have it done.
Leading up to surgery the nursing staff was in constant contact, making sure I was following my pre surgical protocol. Even as late as the evening before, someone called me to see if I was ready. The surgery went smoothly, post-surgical recovery was very tolerable as well. The nursing staff could not be more attentive, calling me to make sure I was feeling well, always returning my call if I had questions. And Dr. Brandy himself even called to see how I was feeling the night after the surgery!
My recovery was faster than I expected. I was back to full swing about ten days after the surgery. And the pain was very minimal, I was actually off pain medication the very next morning -- and that is the truth! My results are beyond my wildest expectations. . .my tummy is flat and trim and I can actually fit into my clothes again. I have never been happier with my body. I am thrilled and cannot say enough about The Skin Center. If you are considering a tummy tuck, then you MUST see Dr. Brandy. The man is an amazing surgeon!
I was very pleased with the treatments I received at The Skin Center. Kathy Allen was very professional, kind and knowledgeable about her job. She was not at all pushy with products or treatments and made me feel very comfortable while I was there. I have also gone to the Skin Center in Columbus, Oh and was pleased there as well. I would definately recommend this center for anyone seeking improvement in their skin and appearance.
Great Service & Great Product Recommendations – I decided it was time to focus on improving the look of my skin in 2010. The Skin Center was recommended by a friend for quality laser hair removal that lasts as well as skin improvements. My skin was very dry due to lack of attention and after a very dry winter. Lois, one of the employees there, in less than a couple treatments, was able to clean up the dead skin and recommend great products that I could use at home to continue the progress. I strongly recommend giving the Skin Center a try. They are not trying to sell you on anything and their pricing for service and products are competitive.
I LOVE THE SKIN CENTER – I had a quick lift done on June 16th 2010, some fillers injected in my cheeks and , lip lines and the folds that run from the side of the nose down to the chin. I also had an eye peel to remove puffyness and lines. I LOOK GREAT(not to brag). Dr.Brandy is an artist, which in my opinion, is just as important as being an excellent surgeon. I looked so natural that my own Mother commented"you don't look different, you look better!!" Most people didn't know why I looked so good, they only knew that I did. But not being a shrinking violet, I had to share it with all my "sisters". You have no idea how good you can feel, when the image that you see in the mirror matches the one that you have in your heart. Don't be afraid, the wonderful staff is there to hold your hand every step of the way. They are caring, competent, and kind. Live your life, it is GOD's gift to you. Enjoy it.
Fan of The Skin Center – I recently had cosmetic surgery on my eyes at The Skin Center. Dr. Brandy was my surgeon. The results and my experience was wonderful . From the person who checked me in to the nurses and the post-care staff I cannot say enough good comments. I felt very secure and comfortable knowing I was putting my vanity into another persons expertise.. After going home that evening with a staff member that offered to care for me I received a call from Dr. Brandy. He wanted too know how I was feeling and talked to the person who was caring for me. I can say I really was not in pain. The next day I returned to the office to see Dr. Brandy . I felt he truly took the time with my postcare instructions and once again the nurses and front office staff could not have been better.
tHE MOST WONDERFUL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF AND – Cindy the receptionist is very accomodating and is dedicated to helping you get the appointment you need. She even calls to let you know if someone cancels so she can fit you in sooner.
Lois is a gem. I have been going for 3 yrs. She is professional, caring and meets your needs without you adking. She does a wonderful job at hair removal. She has worked on my face and I have never had a poblem with burning or scaring. Anyone I have referred to her is amazed at what a great job she does.
I would reccomend anyone interested to go to them. You will be thrilled with the results and the experience.
