RealSelf Patient Reviews of Andrea Marando, MD
Blepharoplasty
I had noticed my eyes were feeling very heavy to the point that as the day went on I felt like they were closing and my vision was being effected. Once I decided to have surgery I began to look online and ask friends who had either had surgery or were in the medical profession for information regarding different surgeons. The name that kept coming up was Andrea Marando so I booked a consultation with him. Once I met him I knew straight away I wanted him to do the operation.
I expected to be nervous on the day of surgery but I really wasn’t. I experienced no pain at all, I was given antibiotics and ointment which I used as advised. I was also given pain killers which I took non of as there was no need. Both myself and partner were shocked that I suffered no bruising, I really think this was due to the fact that I did rest as I was told to do for the whole week after.
The following week I had my stitches out which to be honest I was dreading more that the operation, I was silly to have worried as Mr Marando was so gentle, it didn’t hurt at all. Straight away I could see the change in my eyelids and was so happy, I was amazed at how little of the scar could be seen at this point, there was just a tiny mark at the edge. This is slowly going by the day. I hadn’t told my father about the operation and he still hasn’t even noticed.
A client of mine knew I was having an operation but didn’t know what, I saw her 10 days after and she asked how I was so I explained what I had had done. She told me she had been looking at me and knew there was something but she couldn’t put her finger on it. The people around me who so know have said I look fresher and more awake, which is exactly the result I wanted. Others who don’t know keep saying I look well, and I keep being asked if I am off out, which makes me smile.
I am not really a make up wearer apart from when I go out, the first time I had to apply eye make up after the operation I struggled as my normal make up brush was too big to apply my eyeshadow, this really made me realise the difference in my eyelids, a great feeling.
A huge plus is that I have got my big eyelashes back that had been buried in my eyelids, people keep commenting and asking if I have had my lashes done.
I am soooooo happy with the result and its only 6 weeks down the line, there have been no negatives what so ever. Even my forehead feels and looks smoother and tighter.

Face/ Neck Lift
I am writing this as it will hopefully help anybody who is considering this type of operation.
I was reaching a milestone Birthday and what I saw I. The mirror did not reflect the way I felt inside ( most so us still feel very young at heart but ageing can be very cruel)
Now firstly I would like to say my goal was not to look younger or to be influenced by media images, I wanted to look like me but a fresher version.
I will list the emotions I felt while I considered the operation…..

Guilt….
Cost….
Causing family to worry….
What would my friends think…
Am I so vain….
Reckless….
Selfish….
The recovery time will use precious holiday time.
Am I brave enough.

The other side of these emotions were…

Lost confidence….
Doing it for me and nobody else
Rather do this than expensive holiday and come back still unhappy with myself.
I have utmost confidence in my surgeon.
I am brave enough and very sensible.
It will make me a better person.
I hate to say this but it will probably keep me in the workplace longer (through choice) as unfortunately our appearance does matter.

So I had a consultation with Mr Andrea Marando after doing extensive research, it was excellent I was comfortable, felt I could ask all questions, I was shown before and after pictures ( this was not an influencer for me as we are all different) they we’re excellent though. The risks and complications were explained to me ( the only way to eliminate the risk is to not go ahead at all)
Mr Marando managed my expectations extremely well and I was ready to book the operation….I was not allowed as Mr Marando wanted me to go away and have a period of reflection and come back to cover any further questions I may have thought of before we could plan.
To be honest this was excellent as when I went back I was completely re assured.

Well I have had my procedure and I am delighted and it is only two weeks since.
I already look so much better and I am still swollen, I would highly recommended Mr Marando as the expertise and level of care was outstanding.

I am now looking forward to my Birthday.

Otoplasty
I have just successfully finished my Otoplasty surgery carried out by Dr Marando. I highly recommend Dr Marando, from the first Consultation until the procedure, Dr Marando listened to exactly what result I was looking for out of the procedure, he thoroughly discussed all the options and the risks. He was patient, considerate and the upmost excellent professional and any queries i had before or after the surgery he was quick to respond and put my mind at rest. The staff that work with Dr Marando were also very professional, the patient co-ordinator Martina, was always there to answer any queries, calls and emails. All in all I had an excellent experience and would recommend Dr Marando.

To Dr. Marando and all the staff. “Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and making me feel so comfortable and relaxed during my stay” I’m made up with the results. Thanks again! Lots of Love

To Mr. Marando. I am just writing to thank you very much for what I consider to be a fantastic job on my breast implants. You really have made a new woman of me but that aside, I couldn’t believe how a man of your expertise and knowledge could be so lovely and charming. I felt you were very thorough but very kind and gentle with it. I felt very relaxed with you and very comfortable, you did not make me feel like was just ‘next’ on the list. This quality, i feel, could not have been taught to you, it’s within you. It was a real pleasure to be your patient and very reassuring that a man of your position could be so warm and caring. Once again, Thank you so much.

Surgery was almost two months ago now. I couldn’t have selected a better surgeon to carry out my open rhinoplasty procedure. I also had my septum straightened. My only regret is that I didn’t get this done sooner…

Both pre op and post op he did everything he could to be helpful. His aftercare is exceptional. I can not rate him highly enough…
Anonymous, Ratemds
Mr Marando is by far the most caring, competent, and professional surgeon or medical professional I have ever come into contact with. Mr Marando performed an Abdominoplasty in Manchester for me on 25.10.2012, and the whole experience of being a patient of Mr Marando’s was amazing. From the first consultation and continuously through-out I was amazed by the thoroughness and knowledge that Mr Marando gave whilst at the same time providing an outstanding “Bedside Manner”. All the nurses even commented on how lovely he was and a pleasure to work with,which isn’t often said about surgeons. My healing process is progressing quickly, and I feel this is all down to Mr Marando’s knowledge and expertise. I would 100% recommend him to anyone for cosmetic procedures, and if I ever need anything else doing it will be Mr Marando that I go to.

Dear Dr Marando. I thought I would take pen to paper ‘so to speak’ to thank you for your outstanding judgement with my Implants. I never thought that I’ve missed my boobs this much until now that they are finally back where they belong. Its a pity though that I didn’t endeavour having the surgery done a lot sooner. Thank God i came to my senses and now i feel all woman again. Thank you

Dear Mr. Marando Thank you so much for my new flat stomach-its great! Although I only had excess skin removed, I feel so much more confident and slim. I do have to Thank You for the personal kindness you showed with the concerns I had with the removal of the drains. As you promised, it didn’t hurt-it was just uncomfortable.

Andrea performed my breast augmentation in July this year and for the first time in my life I have the body I have been striving for. No amount of hours in the gym could achieve the look the augmentation has given me. I cannot praise the care, attention and expertise of this man enough. From the first consultation I knew I could trust him implicitly and had complete faith in him. I cannot recommend him highly enough. The man is a marvel.

Consultant visit I always felt that I was an individual brilliant allaging my fears pre-op explaining everything fully answering any question I’ve asked.Be open minded bear in mind that the procedure you enquired about may not be the most sutiable for you in order to achieve the best results Mr Marando will tell you the truth beprepared you may not like his reply.He is on hand 24/7.I can not praise him enough an excellent team of medical professionals who make sure I was fully informed and secure at all times.

I was . I was passed Mr. Marando’s details by my friend who is a Nurse who researched surgeons to undertake surgery to replace her existing breast implants in which she had this surgery undertaken by Mr. Marando. Mt friend spoke very highly of him and was extremely pleased with his professionalism and excellent advice and ultimately her result. She advised me to go for a consultation when i was ready to have my surgery (Breast Implants and Uplift) which was carried out in 2011. I was so happy with my “new boobs” and also the way i was cared for by Mr. Marando, his staff and all at Bridgewater Hospital. I have recently had my second surgery (tummy tuck 2012). Its early days yet as I had my procedure over a week ago but from what I can see so far, the results are going to be amazing. Its the best thing i’ve ever done and I would advise anybody thinking of any kind of surgery to go for it. Its made me the happiest person ever and I feel so lucky that it was Mr. Marando and his team that did this for me. If I should ever need any surgery in the future I will definitely be going back to Star Clinic. Mr. M you Rock!!

I had my first breast augmentation with Mr Marando in 2006 when he worked for Surgicare which he did a fantastic job. Due to having the pip implants Mr Marando who now has his own clinic also performed my second BA in April 2012 which was the removal of the pips and then replaced with Natrelles. Mr Marando is a fantastic surgeon and I would very highly recommend him to anyone. Before I had my first operation I did lots of research on Surgeons and I definitely made the right decision. Thanks again for your fantastic work 🙂
