Incredible Surgeon - From start to finish I have thoroughly enjoyed the professionalism, experience, personal attention and humor of Dr Derby. I had cancer removed from face and I was only 39, so I was devastated to know I would have a scar on my face. And I can tell you I have had the best possible results and it is because of the skill of Dr. Derby. He has always taken his time in explaining the process and the... More

I was able to meet Dr. Derby via FaceTime and felt immediately comfortable and confident with his knowledge and manner.

Hands Down, Best Surgeon Ever - One consultation with Dr. Derby was all it took, when I was searching for the perfect plastic surgeon to do my breast augmentation. I thought I would need to meet with three or four other surgeons to pick the perfect one. Dr. Derby is the most down-to-earth, (and handsome) doctor I've ever met. He listened intently with all of my concerns and specifications I was looking for, and was always... More

It doesn't get any better than Dr. Derby! - I recently saw Dr. Derby for a Melanoma excision on my breast and being 27 I was nervous about the kind of scar I would be getting. Within 2 seconds of meeting Dr. Derby I knew right away he was the perfect Doctor for this procedure. He was so compassionate and took extra time with me and my husband to educate us and make us feel at ease. He was able to get me in the next day to remove the... More

Dr Derby and his staff were so kind and reassuring to me, I was immediately put at ease. The follow up was equally reassuring with a phone call from Dr Derby later in the afternoon the same day of my surgery asking how I was doing and if I had any questions.

Dr Derby helped me when I had given up ever having a normal hand again. I had what should have been a routine hand surgery but through a fluke of bad luck I had an allergic reaction and ended up with infections followed by more surgeries. After the 6th surgery Dr. Derby agreed to help me even though hands aren't just current specialty. I am now completely healed thanks to him. Thank God for caring and knowledgeable doctors like him.

What a Great Doctor, What a Great Experience - I came to Dr. Derby as a 56 year old woman with saline implants with one deflating. He didn't upsell me on better implants or getting a lift, he listened to me and asked me "If it wasn't for the one implant deflating, would you be here?" Now mind you, I was blessed with great skin and for my age, there is barely any sagging. He gave me my options and went in with the least trauma and... More

Dr. Derby was very kind and thorough in treating me. I had a scar from heart surgery that wasn't healing completely. My heart surgeon referred me to Dr. Derby. Dr. Derby met with me to get an understanding of what had transpired. I was feeling a lot of tightness at the incision and part of it hadn't healed completely after almost a year. He repaired the incision, made it much more comfortable and followed up with me until it had completely healed to our mutual satisfaction. More

This is a long overdue review of Dr. Derby, who completed the removal of a softball sized lipoma from my right shoulder. Dr. Derby is the best & I would recommend him to family and friends. I went to FIVE different consultations before choosing Dr. Derby. He was by far the most thorough and showed a high degree of caring and professionalism. I had never had any kind of surgery before and he put up with all of my questions and walked me through the process & made me feel like I was in great hands More

I work with plastic surgeons and physicians around the world and always notice when a facility really stands out. SPSC is just such a place. These guys really have the training that only a handful of doctors in the world receive. These are past presidents of the Florida Society Of Plastic Surgery and the SE Society Of Plastic Surgery. These are doctors with serious credentials and serious training. Almost any doctor can say they're plastic surgeons but when it comes down to it only a select few are true board certified plastic surgeons like these docs. If you're serious about a great and natural result trust the team at SPSC - they're literally the best in town. More

Breast Implant Replacement - Dr. Derby was an absolute saint. He treats his patients with the utmost care. I went to him with one of my implants deflated and I was an emotional reck! He made me feel extremely comfortable and explained very clearly the steps required to replace my current implants. His staff was also excellent and help us get the failed implants warranty. The final results were everything I had hoped for “ Absolutely beautiful”. One important step in his replacement process was to deflate the other existing implant 2 weeks prior to the procedure to allow the implant pocket to shrink up to match the other implant pocket with the failed implant to allow me to have a better result when completing the procedure. If your wondering if the deflation procedure hurt it did not, and I feel it was a very important step to achieve great results that I am very happy with. I am very pleased with my results and would without question recommend Dr. Derby to anyone who needs breast augmentation of any type. More

Puffy, Tired Looking Eyes - I consulted with three doctors, in three different cities, before deciding to go ahead with the upper/lower Blepharoplasty with fat transfer. Dr. Derby was the third surgeon I met with and I knew before I left his office that he was the surgeon for me. He is an incredibly talented, proficient and meticulous doctor. Plus he is for sure one of the kindest, most patient and caring human beings I've had the pleasure of meeting. You will never feel rushed with this doctor. It's obvious that one of his main concerns is that you are comfortable and knowledgeable about your procedure. Both my husband and I have been extremely impressed with not only the high level of care but the talent that this doctor posses. If the world of plastic surgery gave out gold medals, I can guarantee that Dr. Derby would be a multiple, gold medal winner. I look like a younger version of my self now. I no longer want to hide behind my glasses. I have my confidence back and to me that is priceless. More

I am a bilateral breast cancer survivor having had a mastectomy on each side, 16 yrs apart. The right was a tram flap reconstruction & the left a failed implant reconstruction leaving me with a large ugly scar. Dr. Derby assured me that he would create a left breast and he would also make the reconstructed breast match, The transformation is so amazing, the experience remarkably positive & I am extremely happy. Dr. Derby builds trust, is respectful & provides continual, amazing personal care. More

What is really needed in Dr. Derby's reviews is a sixth star. As you can note from reading previous patient comments, he is professional and compassionate in everything he does from the time you are admitted through the thoughtful follow-ups he makes personally. The whole experience was so comfortable and rewarding, I almost wish there were something else I needed stitched up. More

Dr. Derby, I just wanted to thank you for your help in May 2017. You thought you were going to remove a cyst and you discovered I had cancer instead. You had tissue diagnosed to confirm and then took steps immediately to secure treatment, at home in Illinois, for me. You researched and recommended Dr. Francois Geoffroy at the Illinois Cancer Center. He and I got along very well and he started my chemo therapy the day after I got home. He diagnosed me with stage 4 B cell lymphoma and started an aggressive treatment called RCHOP. After 6 months of chemo and 28 days of radiation I was declared cancer free on Dec. 12th 2017 and we came back to Florida for January 2018. I feel that God put you in our path that day in May and I am grateful to you for helping me to live on today. ~K. More

58 Year Old Female in Good Health, Non-smoker - I had an excellent experience with Dr Bran Derby with a mini face lift and lower blepharoplasty. The results met and exceeded my expectations. Dr. Derby not only has exceptional surgical skills but his bedside manner put me at ease and made the process good from the decision making through the post op process. The nurses are also excellent and caring. 5 stars! More

Dr. Derby treated me like his father. He removed a scar on the top of my ear that was a result of Moh's surgery . He even played my favorite genre of music for me while doing the surgery. You have to look closely to even see that there was anything removed and this was only done 6 weeks ago. The staff was helpful in getting my insurance in order. The nurses were very kind and skilled as well . Thanks so much! More

A "Miracle Worker" - Sarasota, FL - My experience with Dr. Derby was beyond what I was expecting. With having a severe difference between breasts, he made me feel so confident, safe, and at ease with knowing I was in good hands. Being so young, and feeling as if there was no hope for a change with my breasts, I felt pressure in finding the right doctor, but as soon as I met him in the consultation, I knew picking him was the best decision I have ever made. He was so understanding with my wants, he told me his expectations, and he made, what I call a miracle, happen. Prepping for my first surgery, you would expect to be completely filled with anxiety, he had me completely ready-to-go, and so excited for the outcome. He has followed up with me several times post surgery, and I love coming in for my post op appointments because his energy and attitude is contagious. Dr. Derby has 100% changed my life by accomplishing something that seemed so difficult to achieve, and made them completely transform better than we could have ever expected. More

The effects of four pregnancies all by C-section every two years through out my twenties left me with a very undesirable shape. I had tried kick boxing, cycling, hiking, and general laps on the treadmill to try to maintain my weight and regain some semblance of my pre-baby shape. Along with healthy eating and the sheer craziness of my life with four young children I was able to get my weight within 10 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight each time and maintain that. For those of you good with math that means 10 extra pounds with each precious child. My weight wasn't the only issue it was also the extreme extra skin that was left over from the surgeries. I decided to go ahead with a tummy tuck along with liposuction. Dr. Derby and his staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center were very kind, sincere, and honest with their assessments and care.

Tummy Tuck with Liposuction for 36 yr old mommy - The staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center was kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable in their assessments and care. Dr. Derby did an excellent job of making me feel at ease while answering all my questions and addressing all of my concerns. They were upfront with all aspects of the surgery and managed my expectations. I am ecstatic regarding the outcome of the procedures. It turned out even better than I had hoped and anticipated. I would recommend this doctor as well as the facility if you are considering a procedure. - - The effects of four pregnancies all by C-section every two years through out my twenties left me with a very undesirable shape.

Along with healthy eating and the sheer craziness of my life with four young children I was able to get my weight within 10 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight each time and maintain that. For those of you good with math that means 10 extra pounds with each precious child. My weight wasn’t the only issue it was also the extreme extra skin that was left over from the surgeries. I had been randomly doing research on having a tummy tuck since my last child was born. I put it off longer than I needed to as well because I was worried that there was no way that they would clear me for surgery with the extra weight I maintained. This was not the case. While I would have managed, I am very glad that I also waited until my youngest was five before undergoing the surgery. I was still tempted and did (just a couple of times) find myself in situations where I had to pick him up before I was cleared to. I paid for it every time. Which brings me to my biggest piece of advise. Have a good support network setup and make sure you have time to completely shut down and do nothing for at least two weeks. I mistakenly thought that I would be up and about within three weeks. Yes, even with all the C-section experience. When preparing for surgery please make sure you do your research on the facility and doctor who will be performing the procedure. I went to three consultations before I decided. Although it wasn’t a tough decision once I met Dr. Derby and his staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. They were very kind, sincere, and honest with their assessments and care. A qualified doctor with a caring staff will make all the difference in the world during your recovery. You will have questions (some embarrassing) during your recovery and before the surgery. It is essential that you can trust your doctor and their staff. I was very fortunate in that I found an excellent facility and doctor to perform the procedure.I was so excited, even more then nervous, for the surgery. I felt guilty which I have heard is common for mommies. I still do feel a bit of guilt but I give my heart and soul to my children this was something I needed to do to regain a piece of me I had lost along the way. Pajamas was all that was really necessary for the day of and day after the surgery. All the rest sat in the bag, never used. Then there was pain, and more pain, and a bit more pain oh and swelling, lots and lots of swelling. Make sure the nursing staff keeps up on your pain meds and just say no if they want to pull your catheter before you are ready. Do get up and walk when they tell you to…it will help later…or so I’ve been told. My husband was wonderful during my recovery and did almost everything for me. Walking consisted of making it to the fridge and back to the bed for most of the early days so plan on taking it pretty slow for a while.Every day the pain gets better…little by little…each day a little bit better until finally it subsides to the point where you don’t notice it every waking second. I was stitched particularly tight which meant that I was also stooped over for a very long while… (at least three weeks). I am approximately eight weeks post op and I only have phantom pains through my hips when I have over done it. My procedure included liposuction which made this surgery so much different than the C-sections because it felt like my whole core had been obliterated. I still feel like I am wrapped tightly especially around the back but this is subsiding too as time passes. The numbness through my stomach and back were surprising side effects that I hadn’t anticipated. I guess the feeling won’t completely return for up to a year. At this point the feeling is starting to come back but I still cannot feel my belly button area at all. The other surprising revelation was that with the tightening the pubic hair line moves up from where it was so be prepared to either get laser hair removal after the procedure or become really good at waxing. The bruising was also unbelievable in their size and color. These of course subside with time but they can be alarming when you first see them. All of these “side effects” are well worth the results which were just amazing. I still can’t believe it. I am just thrilled! I was honest with most but work about the procedure. Even those at work called me out on the differences…they were definitely noticeable and keep getting better with each passing week. I still have to be careful of not overdoing it or my back becomes very sore and for me I get pains in my hips. I also have to watch my food intake to make sure there is not too much salt because that makes the swelling even worse. I can’t eat much since the tightening which is great but it also means that I have to make sure I am eating enough protein. I preferred soup as a comfort food after the surgery but I found that resulted in me not eating enough. I haven’t started working out since we are so close to Christmas…thinking I’ll just start that as my New Year’s resolution. All in all, I have no regrets and I hope this rambling on will help those considering a tummy tuck procedure in making the best decision for themselves. More

About a year ago, I had extensive melanoma surgery on the right cheek, and the dermatologist who performed the Mohs surgery referred me to Dr. Brian Derby. The reconstructive surgery went very well and healed rapidly. Today, because of Dr. Derby's expertise, my face shows no scarring. God bless you, Dr. Derby! I would certainly recommend family and friends to this excellent, professional and personable physician. More

Expectations Exceeded by Doctor Brian M. Derby MD - Doctor Brian M. Derby is by far an amazing person and surgeon! This doctor single handedly surpassed any other doctor I have ever seen! His medical expertise made me feel VERY comfortable. Doctor D works out of Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Personally calling three other competitors, this wonderful and amazing staff got me in the DAY I called there. Two days later, moved around their own schedule to accommodate what I asked for! What doctor can you say will do that for you? Will go above and beyond with you? What doctor, let alone plastic surgeon will make you feel like more than a paycheck? That's Doctor Derby!!! None of my questions were unanswered. I wanted some big sexy tits, and I got them. I'm so greatful that he didn't have to cut into my nipples, as that was my worst fear. I mean, I got some SEXY tittys! These babies are perky! My incisions are very small, and the scar cream is making them almost unnoticeable. When he pulled off my price tags (medical tape), I was on top of the world! This doctor is one heck of an awesome guy! His staff is wonderful. He has hands of gold! I have never laughed so hard in a doctors office before. If you want great bedside manner, a fun experience, someone who will follow up and be there for you, and a comfortable experience.... this is it! What are you waiting for? My under the muscle D sized boobs were the best Christmas present ever! CALL THIS GUY! It was such a good time, I can't wait to go back and see them! SRQ plastic surgery and their staff ROCKS! <3 - - The only regret I have is not doing it sooner! I wanted this for FIVE years! I started off with pancake flaps. In the end, I have amazing knockers. After two children, I was very worried if I could be fixed with out having a lift done. Never did I ever want to be cut around my nipple. I got EXACTLY what I wanted!!! Out of any purchase I have made in my life, this certainly surpasses any single thing I have ever bought. What the heck was I waiting for? One day I just got the crazy urge. "This is my week, I want this now. I'm going to find a local doctor that can make his happen." After calling three doctor's offices.... I was in!!! More

32 Years Old Looking to Brighten Face with Eyelid Surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty) - Dr. Derby was absolutely fantastic! During our consult we talked through the different options and what kind of results I was looking for. He was extremely patient and answered questions thoroughly and clearly. On the day of my surgery he was calm and collected, which helped to sooth my nerves! During my post-op visit, I was a little uncomfortable having my stitches removed and he took over from the nurse and removed them himself, asking me questions throughout to help distract me. It was amazing! I can't speak highly of him and the staff at the Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center enough. I would recommend Dr. Derby and his team to anyone considering plastic surgery. - - For my entire adult life, I hated my eyelids. I was never able to wear eye makeup and always felt a little self-conscious by how hooded they were. I finally made the decision to get a upper blepharoplasty in the Spring of 2016 and it was the best decision I ever made. The results are exactly what I was looking for; subtle without looking over done. I am so happy with Dr. Derby's work. More

I recently had a breast lift with Dr. Brian Derby. Starting at the front door, the office is lovely and the staff is great. All very professional and no blue jeans. Nothing against jeans but not in this office. Dr. Derby sensed that I was anxious, stressed about other issues and delayed my surgery until I was in a better state of mind. The lovely young lady that takes care of scheduling and patient information was really great about it. Surgery went well and I recovered fine under their care. Nurses Lisa and Jamie were great support. Everything healed as it should. When I saw the befor and after photos I cried. I couldn't believe what this nice young man had done for me. I'm a widow in my mid sixties so this was just for me and oh what result. Dr, Derby couldn't be more kind, understanding, funny, comforting and talented. And totally adorable. If you have to look at a doctor, he might as well be cute. As Lisa said when she starting removing drains, look at the cute doctor and it didn't hurt. Also, who can't care about a man devoted to his wife, children and dogs. Have another procedure scheduled with Dr. Derby and actually looking forward to it. I'll miss him and staff when the work is finished. More

I came to SPSC for recommendations on breast reconstruction. I knew from the very beginning he [Dr. Derby] was a good man and shortly after knew he was also a great doctor. Dr. Derby was respectful to us, called us by our first name, never used nicknames or "hun" it was always first name basis. The preoperative experience was very thorough. All information was provided and accurate. Dr. Derby is always reassuring, some pain involved post-surgical as expected, since subsided. Very pleased with my result. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. I feel I’ve been in good hands having Dr. Derby as my doctor. I trust and like Dr. Derby very much. I would recommend my friends and family to him. More

24 Years Old, Breast Lift Without Implants. Sarasota, FL - Dr. Derby is fantastic! I'm very pleased with my decision to undergo this procedure under his care. Throughout this process Dr. Derby has always made me feel comfortable and cared for. At the initial consult, he provided a thorough explanation of the procedure and even personalized my potential plan of care using pictures & computer imaging - an impressive start to our first meeting. He was honest with what I could expect after the surgery and together we established our expectations and goals. He's kind, engaging, and always made me laugh - making it that much easier to undergo my first major surgery. It's clear Dr. Derby cares about his patients and their well-being. I am beyond happy with my results and would highly recommend Dr. Derby and his staff. - - Throughout my late teens/early twenties I never had any issues with size (I'm around a 36B/34D), but I had never been comfortable with the shape of my breasts - they were droopy, flat, and my areolas were way larger than "normal." I struggled to find suitable bras/swimwear and even my best efforts left my breasts feeling squished and squeezed into place. In my 20's I began to avoid wearing low-cut tops or dresses because I didn't want anyone to notice any odd cleavage. Still, I never thought of myself as someone who would actually get plastic surgery and I had accepted that this would just be an issue I'd deal with for the rest of my life. Meanwhile I knew the toll it was taking on my self-confidence and body image - even if nobody else noticed it, too. After about 1-2 years of researching and exploring my options I finally felt confident and ready to pursue a change. I struggled with the idea of getting a breast lift because I felt like that procedure was something only older women had done, age being the main factor for change. I was embarrassed talking about it and initially I only felt comfortable sharing my ideas by calling the procedure a "breast reduction" - that feeling slightly more conventional for someone my age. Many of my close friends were very skeptical of my decision and generally opposed it altogether. I knew they couldn't fully understand my personal struggle because they hadn't seen my bare unsupported chest. I decided to move forward with the surgery anyways. I reviewed physicians in multiple cities, and ultimately chose a surgeon based on location, reviews, and recommendations from women in my mom's circle of friends. I'm now almost 2 months post-op from a bilateral mastopexy, and I am beyond happy with my results. While outwardly subtle (my surgeon ensured my breasts would maintain their original size by using an auto-augmentation approach), the actual physical change from before and after surgery is remarkable. My new breasts are rounder and perkier, and the nipples are lifted and more appropriately sized. The best part of this entire process is that I finally feel relaxed and comfortable in my own skin. I am thrilled with my decision to undergo a breast lift at 24, and I encourage anybody facing similar issues to advocate for themselves and their own well-being! More

My Breast Augmentation Experience Exceeded my Expectations - Intuitive and a pleasure to do business with, Dr. Derby is a great doctor all around. - - Upon my first consultation, I knew I had found the best doctor for me and with that, Dr. Derby made me feel confident in my decision to have breast augmentation. I left the office 100% sure I wanted this and for the right reasons. I never felt rushed deciding size, shape, and placement. Dr. Derby spent a lot of time with me documenting notes of my concerns and my wishes of overall appearance. He made me feel very comfortable with extraordinary bedside manners each and every time I visited his office. The evening of my procedure, he called to check in to make sure I was feeling well. As a newbie to cosmetic surgery, I felt on edge on whether or not it would be worth it to me to have this procedure done. I'm so pleased to say my husband and I couldn't be and happier with the results. I received exactly what I desired with an outstanding doctor/patient relationship. I've already recommended him to others seeking out similar procedures. In the future, If I choose to have anything else cosmetically done, I wouldn't have to look any further for a facility that was more welcoming, clean, and most of all professional. Best money I ever spent!! More

Words can not express my gratitude for Dr Derby and his staff. My 19 year old son was in a serious motorcycle accident and Dr Derby was unclear if he was going to be able to save his foot. After several small surgeries of cleaning out the wound and repairing bones, Dr Derby performed a 12 hour surgery, removing muscle from the thigh and a skin graft and transplanting to his foot. The surgery was a huge success and my son has his foot! Dr Derby kept my son and I calm through a very difficult time More

Dr. Derby's first priority was making me feel at ease. He listened to me, checked the wound that I needed fixed because it would not close and explained step by step his procedure. During surgery under local anesthetic he constantly told me what was going on, check to make sure there was no pain and even called me that evening and the next day to check on me. I've had two follow up visits and I'm extremely pleased. I look forward to seeing him in about a year for another procedure. More

Age 40; Mother of 3 With Lots of Extra Skin in the Tummy Region - Sarasota, FL - To anyone out there thinking about getting a tummy tuck Dr. Derby is wonderful.. He is/ was so attentive and completely put me at ease by answering every single question that I had. And, trust me, there were plenty.. :) But, he gave me as much time as I needed to make me feel comfortable about the procedure before and even after the surgery was completed.Not only is he extremely educated in the area of abdominoplasty, but his bed side manner is amazing! He truly showed concern for me as his patient and made me feel so comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have cosmetic surgery done. - - I'm a mother of 3 very large baby boys who caused my stomach to become covered in stretch marks and sagging skin. I hated the way I looked in a bikini or even just showing my stomach in general! I had the abdominoplasty surgery done on March 9th of 2016. Excited but nervous, I arrived to the surgery center where I met with my nurses (amazing) and Dr. Derby. They were prompt and so professional. When I woke up, to my surprise, I really wasn't in as much pain as I had expected. I just had a lot of discomfort. I spent that night in the rehab center and went back to see Dr. Derby the next morning. After about two weeks I was able to start getting up and move around (with pain meds) to shower on my own. I returned to work (system admin) after 3 weeks and was a little uncomfortable but able to do normal activities of my job. After the 4 month mark I could start to see the swelling go down and also started to feel more like myself again when moving. I am now 6 month post-surgery and look (not to toot my own horn) amazing! I so love to show off my tummy in a bikini and even went down in a size. YAY!! For me, it was so worth it but it took the right team and surgeon! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! So, here is a BIG Thank You to Dr. Derby and staff for your amazing skills and incredible bedside manner. I truly appreciate the way you took care of me during the surgery and as you continue to do so as your patient. More

This is my second procedure with Dr. Derby! I can???t believe I am saying that! I was so hesitant to have any cosmetic surgeries it???s hard to believe that I have had two done. Dr. Derby did a tummy tuck for me in January. I was so pleased with the results I decided to have a second procedure done. My breasts had become too large and was causing neck and back pain. I spoke to Dr. Derby about a breast reduction. He explained the benefits from having it done, the procedure itself and what to expect for recovery. I have soooo much confidence in Dr. Derby that I scheduled my procedure and had it done 4 weeks ago. I could not be happier! Dr. Derby made my breasts not too big, not too small, but just right. I now have Goldilock breasts! They look so much better and I noticed right away with the weight gone from my chest, my neck and back pain subsided. Clothes fit so much better too! The recovery was easy. Dr. Derby checked on me the night of my surgery and I saw him the very next day. I have had multiple follow-ups and I am always so pleased to see how Dr. Derby, Lisa, Kerri and the staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery center are so caring and attentive. Dr. Derby is a wonderful young surgeon with an amazing future. I am so glad we have him in Sarasota! More

I was apprehensive to go through the surgery.... I researched and kept looking at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Group.... Dr. Derby was recommended for the reduction... Went for my Consultation and so pleased with Dr. Derby recommendations.... He said immediately that my breasts were too large for my small frame... I felt secure to make a decision to have Dr. Derby do the surgery..... After all medical tests and clearances I had the surgery.... I am 10 days postop and feel great. Sarasota Plastic Surgery office is run so efficient. Dr.Brian Derby is a wonderful surgeon and has his patient's best interest and safety....

30 Years Old, I Wanted to Add Lift and Fullness to my Breasts - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Derby was an amazing doctor to work with. I felt very comfortable around him and he listened to what my needs/wants were, and he delivered. He was very compassionate about his work and I could tell he put in the extra time and effort, he truly loves what he does. I even emailed him after my pre-op appointment to express what I wanted further and he called me promptly to ensure we were on the same page. My breast augmentation was the first surgery I've ever had and while I was nervous to be put under, I felt 100% at ease knowing I was in good hands. He followed up with me every day and my recovery process was easier than I could have ever imagined, I was out of the house the next day for my follow up appointment and I felt great. I have recommended him to all my friends & family for any procedures they were interested in. - - I wanted to be able to wear a sports bra and my breasts not have the "pancake" effect. I also wanted the option of not wearing a bar since there are so many cute clothes that have open backs, mainly dresses.

Life Changing! Breast Augmentation with Periareolar Lift - Sarasota, FL - I'll start off this review by saying if you have ever considered having a breast augmentation, wait for the Doctor who you are 100% confident in and with. Now I'll share my story. I'm 24 years old and went through a pretty big weight loss a few years ago. I lost around 80 pounds, all of which i was completely convinced was any appealing breast tissue i ever had. I was left with loose skin and my boobs did this super attractive cookie monster thing. Being an 18-23 year old took a toll on my self confidence. It took a bit until I realized I am not defined by my breast size or how they look, I became confident in myself as a woman and thats when I knew I was ready to pursue the surgery. Coming from a family who is completely against plastic surgery, friends who pressured me to get it or not get it, listen, EVERYONE will have an opinion. But what matters is you. This is your body and your life. People will think you are the smartest person or the dumbest. They will love your results or hate them. Again, this is you that will live with the results of either having a breast augmentation or not. It is a very personal decision and you make it confidentially. The ones who love and support you either way will be there. It took a lot of consultations, before i found hands down, the best and most honest Doctor I've ever encountered. I went to consultations where I felt rushed, like my questions were silly or a burden, I had a lot of questions with having some extra skin and wanting my breasts to be even(no more cookie monster) etc.. and please, if that ever happens, you leave. This is a major surgery and you are looking for someone to completely trust, it is a life changing surgery. It took about 5m of talking with Dr. Brian Derby of knowing he was going to be my doctor. He has changed my life. He has given me results above and beyond anything I have ever dreamed of. From the first consultation he sat and answered any and every question I had, he put me at ease and explained everything so thoroughly. He explained along with a breast augmentation I would also need a periareolar lift, he thoroughly went through implant sizes and I was able to show him what I wanted, my end goal was to be a D-DD, he went over after care and everything in between. I felt 100% trust with him. His staff is so thorough and follow up with you very often. So I booked my surgery and my final consultation before I brought my boyfriend who would be taking care of me after, Dr. Derby explained everything to him, made him completely at ease. We talked about everything, joked around, showed my boyfriend the final implant size, I left feeling very excited and confident.The day of surgery I wasn't that nervous and I owe that to my supportive man and the staff and Dr. Derby, we all joked around that morning, very early morning, talked about going under, they answered my question of "will I wake up half way during surgery?" as silly as it was, that was my only fear. We all laughed at that one. Everything went amazing. They called my boyfriend multiple times during surgery to let him know I was good, which meant a lot to him and put his mind at ease, the next thing i know I woke up with boobs! Best day ever! Recovery wasn't bad at all. I slept most of the first day, and went back the next morning for my follow up. I got to see them for the first time and even with them being 12 hours old I was amazed. I went home and just stared at them and cried because I was so over whelmed with happiness. That has been my every day reaction since. I had this mental picture, combined of all the boobs I looked at prior to surgery, which was ALOT, alot, of boobs..and my results don't even compare. I never imagined I would and could look like this. The after care and follow up and how personable Dr. Derby has been, what he has done for me, how he has changed my life, I could never say thank you enough. I waited for this surgery and I thank God every day I waited until I felt that trust, because how beyond happy and in love with my results, I wouldn't trade for anything. I went from about a 32B to a 32DD. No more cookie monster thing, just perfection in my eyes. I'm about 1.5 months post OP and my scars have almost completely diminished. I will and always go with Dr. Derby. I get compliments daily and can't help but be so excited to tell people where to go and who to see, because every single woman who wants and is pursuing a breast augmentation deserves the happiness, trust, comfort and excitement and falling in love with YOUR body and how you look, what I live with now and after having an incredible experience, was worth the wait, was worth everything.Thank you Dr. Derby for impacting my life in such an amazing way! You truly are gifted in what you do! More

33 Year Old - Breast Revision - Sarasota, FL - During the initial consultation, Dr. Derby examined me and discussed options and outcomes. He showed interest in my daily routine and was able to build a rapport with me instantly. After we made a decision on how to proceed, we had another visit to wrap up the details of my upcoming surgery. He answered all my questions and explained every single detail. The day of the surgery we revisited all concerns and and after the surgery he followed up with me many times.Dr. Derbys personality made me feel supported; I could clearly see how outstanding his work ethic was and i never had a doubt about his skills. I am 100% pleased with my choice and I would recommend him to anyone. - - I had saline implants placed 5 years ago. It happens, one of them ruptured. I did my research, and I found Sarasota Plastic Surgeons. They have a great reputation in the state, so I let them choose one of the Dr.s for me. Dr. Derby. I had my first consultation and I instantly knew i wanted to do the procedure with him. The way he explained everything to me made a huge difference and how charismatic he was sealed the deal. I had other consultations with other Dr.s in the area but i knew Dr. Derby was the one. He communicated so clearly before the surgery, the day of the surgery and after the surgery. The follow up he did with me really made me feel supported.The surgery itself went great. I had very little discomfort and was able to get back to my regular life within 2-3 days. Results are AMAZING. I can already tell even though its been less than 2 weeks.The whole staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgeons was very friendly and professional. But what made the difference was Dr. Derby.In conclusion, with the reputation the group had plus the amazing personality and work ethic Dr. Derby had, it was very easy for me to make the decision. Thank you!!!! More

Breast Augmentation - Sarasota, FL - I can't praise the work of Dr. Derby enough! He was extremely professional & made me feel comfortable through the entire process. It was apparent he was compassionate of the final product and always kept my interest in mind. - - I went from an A cup to a beautiful, symmetric, natural D cup. I couldn't be happier. The entire process was quick and stress free. They were able to get me in the office for a consultation and in surgery within one month! I really appreciated that Dr. Derby explained everything--not just the black and white of the procedure. He followed up with, not only post-op appointments, but took the time out of his day to call to make sure everything was well and pain was managed. More

I recently had a wonderful experience with Dr. Derby and his staff. My dermatologist had discovered a melanoma on my upper arm and it needed to be removed. Dr. Derby was able to accommodate me in his schedule. His manner is very professional, yet warm and friendly. He put me at ease and gave me great confidence. The procedure was painless and very thorough, with excellent results. Dr. Derby and his staff exceeded my expectations, and I have already recommended him to friends and family. More

Male Breast Reduction (Gyno) - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Derby is one of the most kind and caring doctors/person I've ever had the joy of getting to know. Absolute professional when it comes to how he handles his patients under surgery or during check ups. Extremely positive and encouraging mannered to make the whole process feel very smooth and painless. I couldn't have ended up with a better doctor in my true opinion, amazing guy! - - Dr. Derby at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center performed an absolutely stunning job with precision detail in his work when it came to my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the results. I had breast tissue removed from both lower pecs surrounding the nipple, and the job performed was stellar allowing my chest to have then natural contouring shape that its meant to have. More

No Boobs to Beautiful Boobs! - Sarasota, FL - I was nervous about finding the 'perfect' doctor but I came across Dr. Derby and had the best experience. From my consolation to post surgery was amazing. I almost can't wait to go back to him when I need them re-done! - - I couldn't say one negative thing about Dr. Derby or any of the staff here. Everything was amazing and made me feel 100% comfortable. I am a 21 year old female but when I got the procedure I was 20 years old, I had vertically no room for implants let alone for the size I wanted around a 32DD. But I could have never imagined how perfect mine came out! I am a little over six months and can not believe the work he did. I spent a lot of time reviewing photos of women after surgeries and I feel as if mine can't even compare and in a beautiful way! I recommend Dr. Derby and Sarasota Plastic Surgery to anyone! More

44-year Old Removes Implants Gets New Ones - Sarasota, FL - Dr Derby was one of the best doctors with which I've ever interacted. As a busy, traveling professional, I wanted an efficient office, organized process, clear financial expectations and smart doctor with listening skills, creativity and great communication skills. Dr Derby was all of that and more. Being middle age I struggled with the decision ofwgetheri wanted implants anymore or not and Dr Derby was patient, informative and truly caring. He never tried to push anything, rather continued to help me thru the decision. The procedure and follow up were nothing short of perfect. Dr Derby is a kind person who loves what he does and does it well. I'm fairly demanding and I was completely comfortable in his care and thrilled with the results. If only he was my regular doctor! - - My 19-year old saline implants were starting to feel lumpy and I wasn't sure I wanted implants at all anymore. Dr Derby was so patient and creative and smart. He provided options. I had them removed and lived with that while deciding. Then had new implants put in after hours of contemplation on size. Amazing experience, not painful and so happy. More

Dr Derby's reputation for being meticulous and proficient along with having a great demeaner are truly accurate! The results are marvelous! Thank YOU! Dr Derby - - I have worked as a RN in OR for 16 years and know these surgeons well. I witness pre-op, surgery, and post-op. I'd let any of them (and have) perform surgery on me. I chose Dr. Derby, deciding I needed someone who will not retire as I approach my senior years. As years passed, bags and wrinkles became prominent, so I had eyelid surgery and fat injections in the hollows of my face. People don't notice the changes; the tell me I look rested.

Age 40; 3 Kids and Lots of Extra Skin in the Tummy Region - Sarasota, FL - To anyone out there thinking about getting a tummy tuck, Dr. Derby is /was so attentive. He truly put me at ease by answering every single question that I had and took as much time as needed to make me feel comfortable about the procedure even after the surgery was completed.Not only is he extremely educated in the area of abdominoplasty, but his bed side manner is amazing. He truly showed concern for me as his patient and made me feel so comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have cosmetic surgery done. - - I'm a mother of 3 very large baby boys who caused my stomach to become covered in stretch marks and sagging skin. I hated the way I looked in a bikini or even just showing my stomach in general! I had the abdominoplasty surgery done on March 9th of 2016. Excited but nervous, I arrived to the surgery center where I met with my nurses (amazing) and Dr. Derby. They were prompt and so professional. When I woke up, to my surprise, I really wasn't in as much pain as I had expected. I just had a lot of discomfort. I spent that night in the rehab center and went back to see Dr. Derby the next morning. After about two weeks I was able to start getting up and move around (with pain meds) to shower on my own. I returned to work (system admin) after 3 weeks and was a little uncomfortable but able to do normal activities of my job. After the 4 month mark I could start to see the swelling go down and also started to feel more like myself again when moving. I am now 6 month post-surgery and look (not to toot my own horn) amazing! I so love to show off my tummy in a bikini and even went down in a size. YAY!! For me, it was so worth it but it took the right team and surgeon! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! So, here is a BIG Thank You to Dr. Derby and staff for your amazing skills and incredible bedside manner. I truly appreciate the way you took care of me during the surgery and as you continue to do so as your patient. More

My first meeting for lower eyelid surgery and facial fat grafting with Dr. Derby was great. He answered all of my questions and really put me at ease. My confidence in him continued to build during the consultation and I felt very comfortable. The scheduling process exceeded my expectations, and the office was more than willing to accommodate me when I had to change some dates around. They made it very easy, which I appreciated. The day of surgery went great! The nurses made me feel very comfortable during the prep process, and I was once again assured after meeting with the anesthesiologist, and the procedure went great! The postop followup process was very good. I felt like I was very attended to, and any questions I had were answered. Dr. Derby was very thorough in our discussions, which I appreciated, and the staff made it easy. I am very happy with the results of my lower eyelid surgery and facial fat grafting. In fact, I'm planning on following through with some other suggestions Dr. Derby has made for me. My experience from start to finish exceeded my expectations. More

In addition to superior surgeon skills, Dr. Derby has a reassuring manner that is so refreshing. You can tell it is not practiced speech, it is genuine and heartfelt. Dr. Derby is just fabulous, he did a marvelous job. I had a situation that was bad and just getting worse. Without Dr. Derby I would have been in a lot of trouble. I will forever be grateful to him. He talked to me through the removal of a very large right cheek skin cancer under local anesthetic, and repair of the large defect that resulted. Beth, Melissa and Tyka in the operating room, and in the recovery area, were wonderful. When we got the call that the margins were clear, there was an audible "whoopee" in the operating room, which made me very happy. The weight was lifted off my shoulders. Courtney was an angel on his shoulder, and she took the time to listen and care. The fact that she didn't just blow off my call to arrange a consult with Dr. Derby meant the world to me. The whole organization is top notch, well organized, and all of the staff were wonderful. I want to make sure the public knows how supportive the whole staff was, and how terrific Dr. Derby is. As a man who was in business for over 45 years, and a VP of marketing, the staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery knows what they're doing and Dr. Derby is the BEST plastic surgeon. This in the only place I will go. Every facet of my experience gets 5 stars! Take one look at the parking lot and try to find a space, and you quickly realize, they must be doing something right.

To perspective clients, I’m writing this to help anyone who is considering having plastic surgery. I highly recommend Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. The doctors and staff are second to none. My story starts 18 years ago, I was in my late 40’s. I had 3 children whom I breast fed and time had taken its toll. A friend told me of a Doctor in Ft. Myers where I had saline breast augmentation. This past October my 36yr old daughter wanted to have breast implants. My daughter was an athlete with a very muscular chest. Her friend who is a police officer had a consultation at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. She was treated like royalty and wanted to have her surgery right then and there. She told my daughter about her great experience. My daughter called and made an appointment with Dr. Engel. She was so impressed with how concerned he was with her. He answered all her questions and checked on her numerous times prior and after surgery. During this time I noticed a change in my breast. At first I thought I was imagining things. As days went by I realize I had what I called a “blow out”. My right breast was leaking saline solution. I knew I had to do something so I called Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center where my daughter was scheduled to have her surgery. Thank the good lord there just so happened to have an opening with Dr. Derby the same time. I met with Dr. Brian Derby whom immediately made me feel comfortable with his kind and gentle demeanor. Dr. Derby is a dedicated family man. I could tell right away how much he cared about helping me. Dr. Derby assessed my situation and came up with a plan. He took a lot of time with me and even drew an illustration of how he was going to fix my problem. I was so pleased with his plan I set a surgery date. Before I had my surgery I spoke to one of my doctors about my situation. She then proudly told me that she had surgery at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. I was convinced beyond a doubt that I chose the right place. I knew that she, being a doctor could have gone anywhere in the United States or the world to have her surgery but she chose SPSC. My surgery was a success! Not only did Dr. Derby fix my problem he made me look better than ever. God has truly blessed Dr. Derby with an amazing talent. He is an artist and a sculpture and put together the skills of a great doctor. My husband and I are so pleased with what Dr. Derby has done for me. I will be forever grateful to him, and his caring staff. I am very confident in recommending Dr. Brian Derby and his staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center to anyone wanting to change their life in a positive way. Sincerely, A More

I had a squamous cell skin cancer on my cheek which was removed by a Sarasota dermatologist & Moh's specialist. The next day I chose to have Dr Derby close the wound as he specializes in these procedures as a plastic surgeon. I was thrilled at the expert care and results that Dr Derby performed, it's only been 5wks and there's hardly a mark on my cheek!! I am so glad that I found him and the fact that he does this type of surgery for people who have skin cancer. Thank you Dr Derby !!! More

Dear Amy, Thank you and thank you for pairing me with Dr. Derby. First I would like to apologize to you and your office staff for being late. Your office staff blew me away with their professionalism, kindness, thoughtfulness, and accommodation. You guys didn't make it noticeable that I was late and I appreciate that. Lisa is a true example of what nursing profession is all about kind and compassionate. Thank you so so much. Dr. Derby is so kind and his kindness and gentleness definitely helped my fear and anxiety about the procedures. He didn't rush me even though I came In late. I felt so bad that he spent so much time with me. But guess what... I found the surgeon that I was looking for. I know that I will be very happy with my result. I knew he was the one the minute he walked in the room. I hope he didn't get to far behind schedule. I will be I touch with your scheduler soon. Thanks again Amy. More

Dr. Derby did a very good job. He is very nice and patient and explained every single thing to me. My husband and I came down from Illinois and I had to get this treatment in Florida. I'm glad I found Dr. Derby. My nose is still healing, but it's only been 3 weeks and it's very nice. I do not looked deformed. I appreciate him. More

I came to Dr. Derby because I had a Facelift done previously, about 3 years ago, and I was disappointed. I asked Dr Derby what he thought and what he could do and he recommended many procedures. Because of my age, we settled on doing less because I didn’t want to be under anesthesia that long knowing how long I had to recover. He called the procedure a Necklift, but he did way more.. better than my facelift.. took up the skin in a way that I had no jowls! Also, my eyes don’t close solidly and my ophthalmologist was even concerned and he made it so they do close and even reduced my earlobes. I wear short hair so my ears stick out. I am delighted with results and I recovered well. He did way more than he had to do and made me look so much better and I am thrilled. I would be happy to tell anyone. I am very grateful. I am older, I am 78. He was very caring of me through this whole process and respected the fact that I was older and encouraged me in ways that were helpful. I’m sure most women my age wouldn’t bother with a facelift but I was disappointed in how it turned out the first time. This time was way better. Dr. Derby has a really gentle, caring, not pushy, thoughtful way of relating to someone my age. This is important to me. He looks at you and really listens to you. I really look good when I smile but you wouldn’t let me smile in my after photos. I just want to say ‘thank you’. More

I am a 72-year-old male who never really paid attention to what the years had done to me. It wasn't until my wife would meet me at the door after work with a worried expression on her face. She kept saying that I looked exhausted, haggard, and ill-as she put it, "like Death warmed over." My problem was the bags under my eyes, a permanent scowl, and drooping eyelids that made the under-eye area look even worse. We sought the help of Sarasota Plastic Surgery and had the good fortune to become a patient of Dr. Brian Derby. Dr. Derby is a caring, talented surgeon and his extensive educational qualifications impressed me, but it is his friendly, outgoing personality that made working with him enjoyable. He is thorough and direct in answering all questions, and he never made me feel like I was asking silly questions, even when I needed to repeat them again for my own reassurance. I told him that I didn't want to look like a caricature and he fully agreed. The results for me are amazing-everyone who has seen me after the surgery tells me that I "look great" or "look rested" without realizing that it was all due to Dr. Derby's skill. I think I have dropped a good 5-7 years of wear-and-tear from my face, and am grateful that my appearance now reflects the young 65-year-old that I feel I really am! -JWC, Placida, FL More

Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center - Sarasota, FL - I was extremely impressed by Dr. Derby and his staff with how quick and easy the whole process was. They made me feel comfortable from day one (I am a very awkward person). It only took a month from the scheduled consultation to the procedure. The were very flexible with the post operation appointments being that I work 60 hours a week. I would recommend any friends and family to see Dr. Derby and his staff! More
