Celebrity dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt died yesterday, Sunday 6 April, in his Miami home, as reported by PageSix. Famous for his work with fillers and Botox, Dr. Brandt was known to have worked with a long list of A-listers, from Stephanie Seymour to Madonna, who famously once said, "If I have nice skin, I owe a lot to him."

Jacquie Trachtenberg, Dr. Brandt's publicist, announced the doctor's death yesterday. "He passed away this morning. He was suffering from an illness. Everyone who knows him is devastated. I worked with him for over 20 years and he was an amazing man; not only was he a brilliant doctor, but he was the kindest human being."

Although the cause of 65-year-old Dr. Brandt's death is unclear, Miami Herald columnist Lesley Abravanel posted a series of speculative tweets claiming that the "illness" he was suffering from was depression. RIP Dr. Brandt.
