Dr. Amy Bandy - Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
Reviews / Testimonials
Dr Amy Bandy's staff is always a joy to be around, they make you feel comfortable the moment you walk into the office. Dr Bandy is professional and super sweet, I have had many procedures performed and would highly recommend Dr Amy T Bandy to anyone who is wanting to improve or accentuate their looks.
I've never thought of myself as vain, yet I like looking good and have always tried to look my best and stay in shape. The one thing I always said was that I wouldn't look like a mom. I had three kids and got my body back every time. But, after having my fourth, by c-section, I was horrified. My tummy would not go back to being flat no matter what I did. And, my breasts, which I had fixed after my first three children completely changed. I had heard that Dr. Bandy does the best tummy tucks and a friend highly recommended her. I also had a hernia that needed fixing. To make a long story short, I called Dr. Bandy's office very last minute, towards the end of the year because of insurance issues. I needed to get the surgery done before the end of the year since the hernia portion would be covered by insurance. Melissa got me in and Dr. Bandy took a great deal of time explaining what she wanted to do, what I could expect and how much time I would need to recuperate. She answered every single question and concern I had. She did an amazing job and shattered every expectation I had. I now have a tiny waist, a flat stomach, an adorable belly button and a new outlook on life. I love being a mom...just not looking like a new one! My husband loves my new tummy and can't get over how tight and flat it is. Dr. Bandy also switched out my saline implants and gave me the perfect sized new Memory gels. I was hesitant about the size, but she made the right call! I can hardly wait for summer so I can finally wear a bikini for the first time in 8 years!!! I recommend Dr. Bandy to anyone who's looking to look and feel better about themselves.
I was beginning to see the first signs of aging skin, and it was really bothering me. So I decided to try the laser buff and shine peel that Dr. Bandy had been promoting via email, and I'm so glad I did! Now my skin looks amazingly clear and youthful again. The brown spots and wrinkles on my face have faded significantly. The pores in my t-zone are also much smaller and the overall clarity of my skin is just beautiful. I am hundred-percent pleased with the results and look forward to returning for more laser buff and shine treatments as needed. Thank you, Dr. Bandy! - T.L.
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. Dr. Bandy 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. ~Diane.N
I had been contemplating breast augmentation for years before actually having it done. Recent weight and the years themselves had not been kind to my breasts and they were no longer the ample, perky breasts they had been in my 20's. They had been one of my favorite physical parts about myself, but I had become embarrassed by them. With my wedding just around the corner, and having waited till my mid-thirties to get married for the first time, I wanted to look and feel perfect on my big day. Dr. Bandy was the only doctor that I met with that really understood what I envisioned for my breasts. She was so personable and had such a "real person" quality about her. Both Dr. Bandy and her staff were unbelievably amazing. I must have contacted them a dozen times before my procedure with different questions and they always got back to me right away. They all made me feel so comfortable on the day of my procedure that I didn't feel nervous at all! Every time I came in for a follow up exam, everyone wanted to see me and say Hi and tell me how great I looked! In addition, due to all the stress of planning my destination wedding, as well as a vacation for 17 people, I had huge dark circles under my eyes that could not be covered up by make-up. And my eyes were my other favorite physical part of myself! Like I said, I wanted to look and feel perfect on my wedding day. I was more nervous about having the Juvederm put in under my eyes than I was about the breast augmentation. But Dr. Bandy and her staff quickly calmed my nerves. After having it done I couldn't believe I had even been nervous in the first place! Thanks to the help of Dr. Bandy, I felt like a beautiful princess on my wedding day! More than a year and a half later and I still look at my breasts in the mirror and smile proudly. And nearly a year after having the Juvederm put in under my eyes, you would never know how dark the circles under my eyes had been! I feel so lucky to have been able to have Dr. Bandy help me improve how I felt about myself. I recommend her to everyone : )
I love Dr. Bandy for what she has been able to accomplish for me and my life. I feel confident and sexy again. Her staff treated me with such warmth and delicacy. I felt at home with all appointments. There are so many Plastic Surgeons on tv now these days that are touted as the best. However, through personal experience with friends and colleagues, I have discovered they are not as personable or as passionate about there abilities. I recommend Dr. Bandy to all my friends and family without losing sleep.
Everyday that goes by I am more pleased with the results of my procedure and convinced I made the right choice to have you and your staff perform it. From the first day I walked into your office in Torrance for a consultation to the surgery in Newport and follow-up visits, you and your staff have been wonderful

Dr. Bandy treated me like her own family member. She listened closely to what I wanted, and gave me her educated and honest advice. She analyzed every possible outcome for me. She is so experienced and confident! Cosmetic surgery is a crucial life event. It is nerve-wracking and wonderful all at the same time. At the end of the day, your mirrored reflection is what you want improved. It’s what you will live with every day. My result was outstanding and I am so happy. If you are planning cosmetic surgery, include Dr. Bandy on your list of considerations. She will not let you down. :) -Rebecca
She met every single expectation of mine and more! I will never forget the experience I had. My recovery was so fast and I can finally say, I love my new boobs. I am 100% happy with the results. I would like to thank Dr. Bandy and her staff for taking such good care of me, and for being so friendly and listening. I finally can say, I'M TRULY HAPPY WITH MYSELF NOW. Thanks, Mandy
Dr. Bandy is amazing... I highly recommend Dr. Bandy to anyone!
-(650cc Silicone Breast Augmentation Patient)
Dear Dr. Bandy,
You probably don't remember me, but in August of 2010 you performed my breast augmentation. You were the one doctor that I met with who truly understood my vision for my breasts and suggested an implant in the 600cc range (when other doctors had suggested 250-300cc max). Shortly after my surgery I became ill and was hospitalized and you came to check on me. You were amazing to me, and my breasts were exactly the way I envisioned they would be on my wedding day. My breasts are beautiful and I have loved them every day since you worked on them.
But the way that they look is not the reason that I'm writing to thank you. I vaguely remember that in one of our conversations before my surgery you asked if I planned on having children. At the time we had no plans of having children, so when you asked I sort of paused because I wasn't sure why you were asking. Then you said that you would do something a little different if I were planning to breastfeed. We decided to leave it as an option.
Fast forward 5 years, and in July of 2015 I gave birth to a daughter. The pediatrician and the lactation consultant at the hospital told me that because of the type of breast surgery that I had, I would likely have to supplement with formula. They said that most women that had augmentation/ lifts where the nipple was removed, couldn't produce enough milk to solely breastfeed a baby. At that point I was pretty devastated, but also very determined to do the best I could to breastfeed my baby. I definitely did not produce enough milk in the beginning and the baby wasn't gaining weight, so I had to supplement for a little while with formula. But the lactation consultant also gave me a feeding/ pumping schedule to follow, as well as some supplements to take. Within 2 weeks I was able stop supplementing with formula and solely breastfeed. We are now just over a week away from 7 months of exclusively feeding breastmilk! Both my pediatrician and my lactation consultant said that I had an amazing plastic surgeon, and the lactation consultant even said that she thought it was the best work she had ever seen.
So, Dr. Bandy, I just wanted to send a note to say thank you. Thank you for doing such exceptional work on my breasts that I have been able to beat the odds and breastfeed my daughter for 7 months so far. You are awesome, my daughter and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to come in on a Sunday night to fix me and make me look normal again. The hour that you spent will last a lifetime and stay with me forever. You illustrated what it truly means to be a doctor.
Thank You, -J

Dear Dr. Bandy,
Every day while I am putting on my makeup and fixing my hair, I look into the mirror and think, I have got to put into writing what you have done for me. So here goes... I love the freedom my new and improved face gives me. I can get ready in a snap and go out into the world and put my best "face" forward. I feel like I look softer and happier without all the lines, especially since I no longer have that furrowed brow look.
Dear Dr. Bandy,
I want to let you know how much I appreciate you and your great staff. Not only do you do beautiful work and possess a caring bedside manner, your genuine concern and the individual attention you give to your patients is something to be commended. From the first day of my consultation to the day I felt my last "twinge" of pain I never had any doubt I was receiving the very best care. And therefore in itself is a tremendous consolement for someone undergoing surgery for the 1st time! Thank you! - D.P.

...When my husband & I left her office we knew she was the one! We moved forward with Dr. Bandy on what I needed done (breast implants *big beautiful ones* & a lollipop lift). Dr. Bandy & her team have been there for me the whole way from the beginning & through all my post-op follow up visits.
The results of my breast implants & lift are amazing *I love my new twin girls* and so does my husband! I’m extremely happy with my experience & results, I feel confident & complete again. As time goes by and my healing continues I am more and more impressed with my outcome.
Dr. Bandy….my husband & I are convinced that we made the right choice to have you and your team perform my surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Bandy to everyone….you will be happy you did.
I'm so thankful to have found you! I wanted rhinoplasty for a long time and you instantly made me feel so safe and welcome in your facility.
Thank you for being so caring and genuine and for listening to my concerns before working your magic on my nose and ears!
You truly do have a gift! Words can't express the confidence you've given me!
Kindest Regards, Keira
