Brandt’s publicist reported the doctor was suffering from “an illness,” but did not elaborate, according to the obituary.

Brandt’s patients included Madonna and model, Stephanie Seymour. He had his own skincare line and owned practices in Miami and Manhattan.

Brandt was known for his in-depth knowledge of dermatology and aesthetics, as well as his friendly nature.

“Dr. Brandt was a pioneer in facial fillers and skin care, as well as a real gentleman,” Lara Devgan, MD, MPH, told “He did a lot to popularize non-invasive techniques like Botox, fillers, and skin resurfacing, and he helped make them a routine part of the beauty regimen for many women in New York. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing and wish his loved ones my sincerest condolences.”

"I am profoundly saddened by the sudden death of Dr. Fred Brandt. He has been my trusted friend and colleague for over 20 years. In addition to his contributions to drive innovations in the field of cosmetic dermatology, he was a man of generous spirit," Tina Alster, MD, said. " I will cherish special memories of our many shared personal and professional experiences over the years. He has left a significant void in our professional community which will be felt for many years to come."
