24/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bandy and her staff are amazing! I had a lower face lift, fat grafting into my smile lines, a blepharoplasty and Botox in January of 2014. I am writing this review 5 months later and I am extremely happy with the results. I specifically asked Dr. Bandy not to change my overall look, just to make me look younger and more well rested. I can honestly say that she honored my request! Friends and acquaintances frequently comment that I don't look my age (56). I used to look in the mirror and ask myself who that old person was, as I certainly didn't feel as old as I looked. Now I feel like my vivacious personality and active lifestyle are more in line with my appearance. The staff couldn't be more amazing; Isabelle, Megan and Andrea are always so welcoming, concerned and kind when I am in the office. If you are looking for a Cosmetic Surgeon who is gifted, personable and professional than look no further, Dr. Bandy is awesome!  Respond

19/06/14 5 5 5 5 STAFF: Everyone in the office is great. They address me by my name every time I go in which is really nice. At my last appointment (6 months OP) it seemed everyone popped in just to say "hi" and see how I was doing. It really is an example of the customer service they provide. DR BANDY: Dr. Bandy is very professional during her meetings. She takes the time to explain everything and gives guidance when needed. I can't praise her and her staff enough. CHOOSING SURGERY: I was a 32A and shrinking due to increased exercise, I unfortunately lost a lot of breast tissue. For a woman, that's devastating. I made the leap and met with Dr. Bandy and Melissa, elected for silicone implants, had surgery in Dec. 2013 and am now settling in to a comfortable 32DD. I'm 5'4" roughly 125 lbs, athletic build. I look more proportioned and natural and I love it. My results have been great!  Respond

13/06/14 5 5 5 5 Ever since I was a child, I was very aware of how large my ears were and how much they stuck out.  So I decided to have ear surgery with Dr. Bandy. I can't believe how much more confident I feel now, and for the first time I wear my hair back and up!  I couldn't be happier, and cant thank Dr. Bandy & her staff enough for how great I was treated and for the wonderful experience I had.  I love my new ears!  Respond

21/03/14 5 5 5 5 I had my breasts lifted with Dr. Bandy. I am young, but my breasts have always looked like an old ladies breasts! I didn't think there would be much that could be done to make them look like a young persons breasts, but Dr. Bandy worked her magic, and now I love my breasts. I had plenty of my own breast tissue, so all I needed was a breast lift. The other doctors that I consulted with all told me that I would need implants, but I didn't want my breasts to be any bigger. I am glad that I trusted Dr. Bandy's suggestion for a breast lift because they are now everything I wanted them to be!  Respond

21/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Bandy is truly amazing! I cannot give her enough praise, she and her staff are not only professional but sincerely warm they make you feel more like family than a patient. We all know how nervous we can get by exploring the unknown Dr Bandy is very upfront with what she can and cannot help you achieve. She has inner peace and beauty that makes you feel comfortable. With a gifted eye and soft hands she works magic. My husband was skeptical about this, though I am not completely healed he cannot believe the difference thus far. I want to Thank you Dr Bandy for the hope you have warmed my heart with.  Respond

15/07/13 5 5 5 5 It took me over a year to decide what procedure to actually have done and Dr. Bandy along with her staff really helped me and my husband decide which was best for me.I have to say I'm still in the healing process and will not show all my actual results for another 4 months or so however, my husband sees a huge difference as do I.I think I envisioned to look differently the day I stepped off the table yet, I do know I need to allow my body to heal. I am thrilled with the results and only hope to be more impressed as the months go by. I have never felt more comforted and welcomed into an office as I did when I stepped into their Newport office. If you are a little leary of taking that first step let me be the first to tell you to make that appointment and get a piece of mind on getting your answers answered and the body your dream of. You never know until you make that first step and let me be the first to tell you I wish I hadn't waited so long to make that call.  Respond

23/02/13 5 5 5 5 I want to start off by saying I researched many doctors over a two year span. When it came time to making this big decision, I was confident in choosing Dr. Bandy, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I had a breast augmentation done (2012), and I would do it again in heart beat!! I was a 34 B and wanted to be a 34 D. I am a perfectionist, and I told and showed her exactly what I wanted. We were on the same page, but she also offered a couple of suggestions which I'm glad I listened to. I was a little worried about the size (CC's) I should get especially because of my job. She said not to worry, and she would make "my twins" perfect. That was a lot of trust to put in someone, but it was the RIGHT person! I am so happy with the job that Dr. Bandy did, and I am amazed every time I look at them. I think the most important part is that I am confident in myself now. I am truly grateful and thankful to Dr. Bandy and her staff.

26/12/12 5 5 5 5 Dr Amy Bandy did an amazing job. Very happy with the results. She not pushy with size like a lot of male doctors. I love the fact she is a woman and not a male. I recommend her for sure!

30/07/12 5 5 5 5 I can’t say enough about Dr. Bandy and her staff. The nurses and anesthetist made me completely at ease the day of my surgeries. I am VERY pleased with my experience and would recommend Dr. Bandy to anyone. I had two procedures done and both were revisions from prior surgeries, there’s no comparison. I broke my nose years ago and never was able to truley fix it until I went to dr bandy. I had a prior breast aug that left me disfigured, a revision and came out looking worse, my 3rd surgery was with dr bandy and my last :0) She is passionate about her work and you see it in the results, she is meticulous to detail on every level.  What’s even more impressive is the level of engagement and support Dr. Bandy and her staff give the patient post recovery.  P.S. This was my 3rd revision and 3rd plastic surgeon, my only regret is not finding Dr. Bandy years ago. Happy Newport beach patient!

07/12/11 5 5 5 5 I saw 2 doctors before finding      Dr. Bandy.  From the minute I met her. I knew she was the right doctor for me.  The other doctors were nice, but we just didn’t click.  Dr. Bandy's passion for detail of cosmetic surgery is what lead me to choose her as my doctor for my breast implant exchange & tip plasty.  She is amazing, caring, patient and one thing for sure, she wants to ensure that her patient receives the best care and treatment possible! The day of my procedure, the pre-op nurses, Isabel & Meagan, at the surgery center were very nice and made me feel comfortable.  The after care and follow up calls and visits have been indescribable.  I received daily calls from the staff at the office starting the evening of my surgery and every day until my 6 week after-op. My overall experience to date has been great! Thank you Dr. Bandy and Staff =-)  Respond

20/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bandy and her entire staff were amazing! I would pay what I did again in a heartbeat, my results are better then I could have ever hoped for. I felt like family there, I never had to wait, they were always warm and inviting and treated me as a special individual instead of just a.nother patient.

27/10/10 5 5 5 5 I was blessed to have met Dr. Bandy. She was very understanding and could relate to me and my concerns...a very empathetic, and caring person. Her cost was affordable and reasonable and I am so happy with my results. Dr. Bandy is probably the best plastic surgeon in the country.  Respond

21/09/10 5 5 5 5 I met with 3 doctors before my breast lift with augmentation & Dr. Bandy was the only one who understood my vision for my new breasts. If I had gone with the size implants the other doctors recommended, I know I wouldn't have been happy. I'm only 6 weeks post-op & I love with my new breasts - I feel 22 again! I felt so at ease with Dr. Bandy. I had some (ok, a lot of) questions after my initial consultation, so I sent an email to the nurse office manager, Isabel, hoping she could help me. Not only did Isabel help with some of the questions, but Dr. Bandy herself wrote me back, answered some more of the questions, & said I was welcome to come back in if I wanted to talk some more. MUCH MORE HELPFUL than one of the other doctors office's who never got back to me after I emailed & called. Not only is Dr. Bandy awesome, but so is her staff (Isabel, Megan, and Kirstin, in particular). I would who heartedly recommend Dr. Bandy to anyone considering plastic surgery. ~ Amanda Fink

18/07/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bandy did a facelift, neck lift, breast reconstruction after breast cancer, CO2 Lazer resurfacing on my face, & a fraxel lazer on my neck. How did I ever get so lucky to find this fantastic, talented surgeon. I'm in my 60's and wasn't sure if I wanted reconstruction. I am so happy with my new breasts. I feel young again. I never experienced any pain, either. Thank you, Dr. Bandy.  Respond

25/04/07 1 1 1 I had breast aug by Dr.Bandy in May of 2004. I was at the time a 34B 5'2 and was to go up to a 34D. After surgery my breast were swollen and the implants were sitting high and still needed to drop. I healed fine. But they seemed to large but I assumed that I was a D cup. I'm not a D cup, I'm a 34F. I finally came to terms with the reality and shared with my husband the negative stares I get and how clothes do not fit me and or look to revealing. I just can't go out and buy a shirt and definately not a dress. I went to talk with Dr.Bandy and it was a nightmare she just went around in circle avoiding the fact that she went too big. I saw 3 other plastic mds and they ALL said that I should've had a minor lift and aug. Instead she just blew me up with 525cc of saline. I now have to remove and replace implants have a major lift because I'm sagging even more than before my surgery.I wish that I had my 34B's back. It's been a downward spiral of so many negative exper. in my life.  See Responses

09/03/06 2 2 1 This doctor did reconstructive surgery on my bad breast job.I went larger and had to have her fix another docs mess it came out just ok seems she forot to sew the pocket that the breast implant goes in and part of my implant is coming out that is due to sloppy work.I have yet to fix this and when I complained she just said thats the way it is so she does not care I have had many other docs look at what she did and they all said the same thing.."sloppy work" I would think again before picking her after all she is an "do" and that should say it all i should of done better research in her edcuation and expierence.know the difference between a plastic sugeon and cosmetic surgeon which is really what she is.don't be fooled by a nice office and her testimonials...she tends to rush you to make a decision.and by the way if you want large implants she will tell you they only come in a certain size but they come in all sizes they are just customed made after a certain size..so she is a liar>
