Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Dysport®

Just to soften the lines around the mouth area. Being on Xeralto I tend to bruise easily & took 200mg of Arnica 3x per day prior to procedure, really helped eliminate a lot of it. [Single best thing is...] Offering his opinion & not hard sell.

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Fardo is very careful about where to inject Botox and how much to use. My results were great.

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Dysport®

Dr. Fardo is always such a pleasure, takes his time listening and explaining! Great doctor with wonderful "bedside manners"!!

Tummy Tuck

The care I received by Dr. Catignani and all of her staff was TOP NOTCH. Every question I asked, or any request I had has always been answered or followed up with me in an efficient and complete manner. The girls in the office are super sweet and helpful ALWAYS. I am THRILLED and will absolutely recommend Dr. Cat and The Swan Center. I will also be calling on them for any additional procedures I may want in the future for both me & my husband. My health & wellness was always at the forefront of their concern and I feel so BLESSED to have had my procedure with Dr. Cat. Thank You! From the get-go, my biggest concern was having my procedure performed and the fact that I’m diabetic - how was this going to complicate my surgery. Dr. Cat immediately put me at ease with her calming presence and confidence in knowing exactly how to handle my condition in relationship to having an elective surgery such as a Tummy tuck with Muscle Repair, and Liposuction. Throughout my entire Post-Op aftercare process my diabetes care has been part of my overall recovery, Dr. Cat questioning how my blood sugars are doing throughout my recovery process. Dr. Cat’s concern and care has made this surgery come together easily and effortlessly. I have found a surgeon that I trust with my health implicitly and I would not hesitate to have another procedure with her.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Catignani welcomed me with opened arms. She knew exactly what I wanted and surpassed my expectations. She’s very knowledgeable and genuinely cares her patients. I’m 3 months post-op and am very pleased so far with my new boobies:) The staff accommodated me and I appreciate that the anesthesiologist never left my side.

Rhinoplasty

I was highly satisfied because:1) Doctor was able to identify, agree, and make suggestions on the work I wanted done. 2) There were no surprises or complications during the surgery and recovery.3) The facility is very clean, professional looking. [Single best thing is...] Everything went as planned in terms of procedure, recovery, expectations, day or surgery. No complications and no surprises along the way made it a very stress-free experience.

Joseph Bauer, MD Alpharetta , GA

Breast Reduction

Dr. Bauer and his staff were very friendly and answered all my questions and concerns. They supplied me with enough tape/dressings to continue my care even when I couldn’t come to the office (COVID-19) protocol. I had a breast reduction. I went from a size DDD to a C cup! I feel great. I didn’t expect the pain to last so long, but now that I’m on the other side, it’s amazing!! I have a lot less neck and back pain, and my clothes look great!

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Dysport®

Always friendly and I'm always satisfied with my results.

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Breast Augmentation

I was unsure of what size I wanted, but The Swan Center made me feel as ease and helped me make the decision. Dr. Fardo was amazing :) The staff at the Swan Center was also great and very warm and welcoming every time I came in!

Joseph Bauer, MD Alpharetta , GA

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bauer was incredibly professional, kind, and informative. He and his wonderful nurses helped me make the best choice in implant size for my breast augmentation, and I couldn’t be happier with the results! I have struggled with low self esteem for many years, and thanks to Dr. Bauer and his team, that is no longer an issue for me!

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Tummy Tuck

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Fardo and his team at the Swan Center. Dr. Fardo has a very warm bedside manner and a calming presence. The nurses and staff at the Swan Center are very caring and professional. I am so pleased with the results from my extended tummy tuck and I share my positive experience with anyone willing to listen. As a size 14, I wasn't sure that I was even a candidate for a tummy tuck. After 2 pregnancies and significant weight gain and then weight loss, I had extra belly skin and fat rolls. Dr. Fardo gave me my confidence back. I have a flat tummy! I am excited about swim suit season! I am excited to wear a skirt suit and tuck in my shirt. I am excited to not hide behind loose tops and over-sized cardigans. It's easier for me to work out and move my body without my belly bulge in the way. My experience at the Swan Center has been fantastic and I highly recommend Dr. Fardo and his team. [Single best thing is...] I had an extended tummy tuck after 106lbs lost from weight loss surgery.

Breast Augmentation

I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Cat and the nursing staff. They took their time with me and and answered all of my questions. I always felt comfortable. The results are also incredible. So natural, just what I was looking for! I came in with a list of questions and each one was answered thoroughly! I felt like I made the right decision from the moment I stepped into the office.

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Liposuction

Excellent customer service, nurses very professional in their work, very attentive. Dr. Fardo excellent in his profession, knows how to treat a patient. Excellent anesthesiology. Thank you all for your attention.

Joseph Bauer, MD Alpharetta , GA

Breast Augmentation

I really like that Dr. Bauer prefers to meet his patients fully clothed first hand and talks with you, and then comes in for an examination. The nursing staff are beyond friendly and make you feel comfortable.

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Liposuction

Appointment started on time, my questions were answered.

Mommy Makeover

I was treated exceptionally well, the person that I spoke with initially took the time to talk me through everything, there were no surprises or confusion about anything, which made me feel extremely comfortable. Dr. Catignani was just as amazing, she went over everything and was extremely professional and easy to talk to. I can't wait to have her do my procedure.

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Injectable Fillers

Dr. Fardo listens to what you want and never pushes you to get anything else unless you ask for recommendations. Very little down time.

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Breast Implant Revision

Typical Dr. Fardo and staff experience. Professional, compassionate and highly knowledgeable.

Joseph Bauer, MD Alpharetta , GA

Breast Reconstruction

From the impressive attention to detail, customer service and patient care, every employee handled themselves with the utmost professionalism.

Dean Fardo, MD Alpharetta , GA

Mommy Makeover

He was honest. Even if I didn't want to hear it. He was patient and did everything he could to put my mind at ease. I have surgery scheduled in a few months.
