Celebrity dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt was found dead at his Miami home over the weekend at the age of 65 from an unnamed "illness," though some reports said the condition was depression, compounded by an apparent parody of him cooked up on Tina Fey's new Netflix show.

Brandt's publicist, Jacquie Trachtenberg, said in a Sunday statement that, "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," she added, the New York Post reported.

One writer for the Miami Herald took to Twitter on Sunday, writing that Brandt was upset by what appeared to be a mocking parody of him starring Martin Short.

Short made a cameo on the Tina Fey-produced Netflix show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" as Dr. Sidney Grant, which many suspect was a send-up of Brandt.




Brandt had a thriving dermatology practice in Manhattan and Miami, and previously worked on megastars like Madonna and Stephanie Seymour.

The New York Times profiled Brandt in 2014.

"I've been kind of a pioneer in pushing the limits to see how things work and what the look would be," he said at the time.

"Would I change anything I've done? I might not have used as much Botox, because you don't want to look quite as frozen."
