Dr Graham is a Superb Surgeon - Dr Graham’s reputation as a superb surgeon is well deserved. From the first consultation to the final post-op check-up, Dr Graham’s surgical skills, his dedication to his patients and the care and attention he and his staff give to each individual is nothing short of remarkable. I am very pleased with with the results of my neck and lower facelift. I feel like I was given 25 years back. And... More

Exceptional Experience - Seriously can’t say enough good things about Dr. Engel and his staff! Everyone is so friendly and amazing with putting whatever nerves you have at ease. Committing to getting my boobs done was really hard and how they turned out COMPLETELY surpassed all my expectations. If I could go back and do everything again, I’d chose Dr. Engel every time. More

WOW! I Would Do It All over Again if Dr. Derby Were my Surgeon!! - My experience with Dr. Derby and his entire staff has been incredible. I have never had a doctor/patient relationship quite like this one. Dr. Derby makes me feel like he has all the time in the world to talk to me. He is warm, friendly, and genuinely concerned about how I feel and any concerns I have had before and after surgery. I will recommend Dr. Derby to all my family and friends... More

Simply the Best! - Another amazing experience with Dr. Engel. This time I had fractional laser to my face and also liposuction to my abdomen. In the pre op visit I was told what I should expect so my expectations were realistic. The surgery went well with no complications. The surgery center is second to none. The nurses are incredible which helped supress my nerves. Post Op care was also great, with nurses calling me daily to make sure I was doing well. This is a great facility, with the best Doctors. In my opinion, Scott Engel is the best! He is a perfectionist and you won't find a kinder doctor anywhere! More

Making the decision on size was the toughest part for me but he really gave me great advice.

Review from F.  |  Source: RealSelf  |  Nov 16, 2016

This Specific Doctor! - I view the choice for a plastic surgeon in 3 areas. Reputation; manner; results. I was walking in with a face that had been treated with Botox in such a way that, to me, I looked grotesque. I could smile on one side and the other side of my mouth was paralyzed by the fact that Botox took effect on one side but not on the other. The Botox had been administered by another doctor in another state. To say I was nervous about doing anything else at all was an understatement. I remember Dr. Graham saying to me, when I was considering a lower-priced dermatologist to address my face, "Think about it; it's your face." Good words. I did think about it and I did proceed with Dr. Graham. I had known numerous people who had seen him for successful surgeries, and many of them could afford to go to any doctor in the world. They chose Dr. Graham. He took the time with me, explained, reassured and scheduled me in a time frame for which I could be in town. He was very well recommended and has an unusually admirable reputation. That is what initially got me there. His manner was kind and sweet yet also had a touch of confidence and conviction that he could help me that sort of made me pay special attention to the level of expertise and care I was about to receive.That brings us to the results. No one but a few close friends know I had this surgery. Yet everyone says how great I look, that life must be treating me well, that I seem so happy and content these days. Dr. Graham created the perfect look with a gentle touch, with not too much but very much enough for significant improvement and for rolling back the clock. I am 64. Most people guess that I'm in my early to mid-40's. Maybe that's just being polite but the fact that these compliments come from such diverse individuals and on the heels of this surgery must be more than coincidental.I must compliment, too, the staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Helpful, polite, kind, caring, reassuring....they are extremely supportive and no question seems to mundane or silly for them to answer. They are prompt at returning a phone call and bend over backwards to make scheduling work. The office feels good. It is comfortable, tasteful, clean, nurturing, peaceful.I would go to Dr. Braun Graham again. Plastic surgery is not inexpensive but we don't get another body to live in. Not only would I recommend his work to others, I would return to his care myself knowing I was in the best hands possible. I say this, too, because I have had previous procedures and while I have interacted with some very good physicians and surgeons, I believe Dr. Graham is at the very top of the list in the qualities I value.

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

Triplet Mom, 1 Year PP, Breast Lift with Implants, and Liposuction - Dr. Engle is simply the best that I’ve seen in natural-looking results. I’ve worked in plastic surgery in the past and it is common for a doc to agree with any procedure the patient wants. Dr. Engle was very open and honest with me about 1) procedures I wanted that he didn’t think I needed and 2) recommending things that he thought would give me the result I wanted. He was right about everything and it was very refreshing to have a doctor like him helping me make such a huge decision. 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

26 Years Old, Young Guy, Inherited Double Chin from Parents! - Dr. Derby is a caring, compassionate surgeon and has your best interest at heart. It is a rarity to find someone like that nowadays. My questions were always answered to the best of his abilities. Very amiable, professional, and driven to get you the best results. My expectations were exceeded and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. From start to finish it was 10/10 service from him. More

I Couldn't Be More Pleased - I am so happy with my breast lift and augmentation at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Dr. Derby is the best. My left breast was at least a cup size larger than my right. Between genetics, my age (64), and losing 45 pounds; my breasts sagged horribly. I hated them. Every time I looked in the mirror, I wanted to cry. I decided to not only get back, but to improve what I had lost and I... More

28 Years Old, A-Cup and Tired of Padded Bras - Dr. Scott Engel is amazing! As soon as we met, I knew he was the right surgeon for me. Since plastic surgery is still a major surgery, I was very nervous about getting my breasts done. Dr. Engel put all of my nerves at ease while also being very honest about the risks involved. He truly has your best interest at heart which made me really trust him more. During our initial consultation, he was very informative with helpful tips on what to look for when picking a surgeon even if I didn't pick him. Who does that! To me that showed a lot of character and I instantly felt comfortable with him. I reviewed his work of other patients and loved what I saw! A lot of plastic surgeons oversell that "wow factor" by photos of previous patients that they try to sell you a breast fitting that isn't achievable for your body type. Dr. Engel is realistic and will give you his professional opinion but he truly wants you to be happy at the end of the day. So if you don't go with his opinion that's totally fine, but I did go with his professional opinion. The implant size and shape he suggested fit me perfectly! I am so grateful. He made my breasts look incredible! I seriously couldn't have picked a better surgeon. I am so pleased with him that I will be seeing him for future things down the road. So if you are looking for a skilled, knowledgeable, honest surgeon, please see Dr. Engel, you won't regret it! More

Looking 10 Years Younger! - You can tell that Dr. Engel loves his work. During my pre-op visits, he was very attentive when I described what I wanted to achieve with plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is as much an art as a science - and Dr. Engel fully appreciates this and realizes that every patient is different. His thoughtful recommendations were specific to my needs and my desired outcome. You get personalized care when Dr. Engel is your surgeon! I felt like he really listened and felt confident about understanding and meeting my expectations. And he actually exceeded my expectations! More

I performed a bunch of research on potential doctors for my breast fat transfer. Not all plastic surgeons perform this type of procedure, and I wanted to make sure I had a well-trained, caring, and highly rated board certified plastic surgeon. I researched doctors from the Tampa area down to Naples. I was impressed with Dr. Engel's education, training at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, and glowing patient reviews. I could not find one negative review (and believe me, I looked!) I went to a couple consultations and decided on Dr. Engel because he matched my criteria above as well as being smart, patient, and compassionate. Although he looked good on paper, I thoroughly questioned him to make sure he knew his stuff. He was surprised that I cared so much about the details, and he told me not to worry because he's very experienced and has even taught other doctors about fat transfer. Fortunately, he still took the time to answer my long list of questions. He made me feel like he would spend as much time with me as I needed. Even though I'm often nervous at doctor appointments and shy about about being naked, Dr. Engel is considerate and tries to make me feel comfortable. I liked his reassuring words. He is charming, personable, and has a good sense of humor. Before surgery, Dr. Engel generously offered to improve a couple more areas of my body. He truly cared about giving me the best result possible, no matter if it took him more time and effort. I estimate he performed at least $1000 (probably more) of complimentary work for me, considering the extra areas of liposuction and additional time spent. He's similar to me in that he wants to do the best job possible (perfectionist quality that I like). I was actually hesitant at first to agree to the extra work because it was unexpected. But then Dr. Engel said, "I'm just going to make you more pretty." So I said yes. How can I argue with my expert plastic surgeon who wants to go above and beyond, doing complimentary work just to make me "more pretty?" He didn't have to do that, and it's another reason I'm glad I picked Dr. Engel. He must take pride in his work. When he came in before surgery, he was in a really good mood and wanted to make feel at ease. He could tell I was getting extremely nervous, so he held my hands and reassured me he would take care of me. He reiterated that he would treat me as well as if I was his wife (he said that in our consultations too, and he truly seems genuine when he says it). He calmed my nerves, and the surgery indeed went well. My recovery has been much easier than expected too!Something that I liked about the day of surgery is when Dr. Engel said I was one of his most educated patients during pre-op (smart girls rule). He was impressed with how much I researched the procedure. Also, he was understanding that I would have a hard time trusting him. He was extra patient with me, and I'm thankful that he took his time in surgery in order to deliver the best results possible. At our follow-up, he emphasized how much he cared about me when he said that he was thinking about me all weekend, hoping that I was recovering well. During our recent appointments, he has been super attentive to ensure I have a successful recovery.From my research, I also found him to be a family man and one that gives back to his community. I feel secure not only being in the hands of an excellent doctor but also a good person. I'm looking to use Dr. Engel for additional treatments in the future, and I would highly recommend him to others!For a very detailed account of my breast fat transfer experience, check out my realself procedure review.

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

Dr. Engel made me feel comfortable and confident in his ability to give me the best results and he did not disappoint. Because of my medical history, I was deemed high risk for surgery but Dr. Engel took extra care and time to review everything fully, and implement some additional precautionary measures.

Dual Plane 295cc Anatomical W/ Donut Lift - Dr. Engel is an artist! He listened to everything I wanted and spent several hours with me making sure we were on the same page. I had interviewed many other PSs all around the US, and no one listened to me the way Dr. Engel did. I am an RN and had done a ton of research on my own, and he was eager to engage with me in all of my neurotic notions :) I cannot thank him and his incredible staff enough. I am in love with my new boobs! - - 35 years old, 5'3" 130lbs. I was looking for a very natural, conservative result. I breastfed 2 children and my breast were sagging and empty. I didn't want the vertical scars of a lollipop lift, and I also wanted my breasts to appear very natural, so the donut lift was my choice. Dr. Engel highly recommended anatomical implants as they also offer a small lift. Ultimately, I left the size up to him with these conditions: as small as possible while also accomplishing the lift needed. I'm so thankful he was able to go with the 295cc because they are the PERFECT size for me. More

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. 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 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

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

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

Incredible Experience, Amazing Results!!!! - Sarasota, FL - I recently had a breast augmentation and breast lift procedure with Dr. Engel and words cannot begin to describe how happy I am. I have been contemplating having breast surgery for years but I was always afraid of looking “fake” or “too big”. I am very petite and have always felt self-conscious about my chest. Dr. Engel really listened to me and understood what sort of result I was hoping to achieve. Well, he by far EXCEEDED any expectation I had. Dr. Engel and his incredible staff answered all of my questions, calmed my nerves, and made me feel like I was the only patient, and not just one of many. The surgery and healing process went so smoothly and the surgical team was fantastic and so kind. I would highly recommend Dr. Engel to anyone considering plastic surgery. Everyone at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center made me feel so comfortable. I honestly never thought I could be this happy, I have a new found confidence that I did not know was possible. Thank you so much Dr. Engel, you are not only an amazing surgeon and perfectionist but truly a wonderful person. 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

Breast Reduction at 70 - - Approaching 70 and being a very active person suffering from neck and shoulder pain...My Primary and Orthopedic Doctors agreed that I need a breast reduction to alleviate the discomfort... 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.... I am so happy I picked him and had such a great experience..... Bonus is I feel great and look great........ Wish I did it 10 years ago.... More

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

I have had an issue with a seroma in my right leg, but nothing that Dr. Derby hasn't been able to find a solution to. The eye lid surgery was a success as well.

The Best of the Best! - Sarasota, FL - Skillful, professional, experienced, sincere and knowledgeable. - - After seeing the amazing results of (3) women I've known since 2003, I knew that Dr. Graham was the best plastic surgeon in Sarasota. I've been a patient of his since 2005. During this time, I've had a liposuction procedure, various "fill-ins" and most recently a "full necklift" which looks more like a mini-facelift. Not only does Dr. Graham have an artistic eye, but he's also an expert at producing a "natural look." He doesn't pull the skin too tight, and it's hard to tell that surgery has been performed. He has a fantastic reputation and deservedly so. Additionally, he's a very nice person who truly cares about his patients and the outcome of their procedures. More

These Trough and Mouth/lip Area Filler - Sarasota, FL - Wonderful caring and skilled Plastic Surgeon. - - I recently had Restylane injected into my tear troughs, mouth corners, lip lines and upper lip. I had pretty deep hollows under my eyes and wanted a few of the lines around my mouth softened and the corners of my mouth lifted. Because I needed more than one vial, I opted to have a little injected into my top lip. Being 65 years old, my lips are disappearing. I had a lot of bruising on the corners of my mouth and had a couple of black eyes in spite of icing diligently. Also, had "chipmunk cheeks" for close to a week because the tissue under the eyes is so sensative it caused a lot of swelling. I was not at all comfortable with the way I looked for at least a week. Now that the bruising and swelling is gone, I am very happy with the results . I will probably do this again but will carve out a week of down time to recover. I do tend to bruise and swell more than most people so my experience may be a little extreme and not the norm. I wanted to post this so if anyone has the same experience just be patient and give it at least a week for the results. Also, I think it goes without saying that going to the best board certified plastic surgeon you can find who is skilled in this procedure is a must. More

Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel and his entire staff - from the front desk staff to the surgery scheduler to the OR nurses and the anesthesia Doctor - allowed me to have the best experience I could have asked for. He took the time to answer every single question and with his expertise suggested the appropriate size and implant for my body type. I would recommend anyone looking for an experienced, professional and caring surgeon. After 3 months, I am beyond happy with my results and they get better each day! Thank you Dr. Engel for changing my life! More

Worth Every Penny! I LOVE Them! - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is incredibly skilled and talented. From the very first interaction with him he proved himself to be an excellent physician, an engineer (positioning breast in just the right place especially in my case takes skill), and an artist. He takes his time with you and very thorough in his care each step of the process from consult to post care. I cannot say enough good things about my experience and my results. Thank you Dr. Engel! - - I had a hysterectomy 16 months prior to my BL/BA. After 19 years on birth control pills my breast quickly deflated when I removed the exogenous estrogen of oral contraceptives. They had already begun to change due to age but with major change in hormones and then a resulting weight loss (in part due to the change hormone fluctuations and part due to change in exercise regimen), I was with what was once 34DD/34DDD to a 32C/D. As much as I hate to describe my very own breast this way, they were sad little socks on my chest.Dr. Engel was very thorough with my initial consult. After discussing how my breast had changed most recently bringing me into his office and my wishes we began discussing all the options available. We discussed pros and cons of saline vs. silicone. Then we discussed the different options to lift and the pros/cons. You will see many physicians and eventually even many patients repeating the mantra on Realself, "go for shape, don't worry about scar". I am very glad I learned this mantra and chose my PS by this. I knew going into this I would likely end up with a "lollipop" or "anchor" but more likely the "anchor. He was able to digitally show the difference between the two lifts and I agreed that an anchor would be best due to my desire to have more lift. It is engineering with artistry. I wanted my "big" breast back and at the right level. I booked my surgery the same day as my consult, two and a half weeks later. Dr. Engel has a professional, kind, easy going bedside manner. He said more than once he is a perfectionist. He is. His work is evidence of this and I am fortunate to have it.I could not be more thrilled with the results. I love looking in the mirror now. It is amazing to see my body not only as it was, but better. The scars - I'm only three weeks out and they are so fine and light that I am confident with the recommended scar gel that they will be difficult to distinguish in time. I text my husband at least once a day telling him I love them. Dr. Engel's entire staff from the front office to the nurses were awesome. Very patient with redundant paperwork I needed for my workplace to return to work. And quick to return phone calls and emails. The entire group is fantastic. 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

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.

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

Allergan Style 410 Dual Plane 360cc - Sarasota, FL - I can't say enough good things about both Dr. Engel and his staff. From start to finish everyone is welcoming, informative, and make you feel both special and important! Dr. Engel is wonderful! His extensive knowledge as a surgeon mixed with his witty sense of humor put you at ease immediately. For my augmentation I knew I wanted a very natural look. He took the time to listen, weigh the options, and offer his professional opinion of how we could get there. And while choosing the direction to go, regarding size and style of implant, is a collaborative effort between you and him, I chose to have him make the final decision. Trusting him was the best choice for me, and I would do it that way again in a second! My results have completely exceeded my expectations and I can't thank him enough!! Dr. Engel is an exceptional plastic surgeon and I would recommend him every time!! - - I'm almost 3 weeks post-op with Allegra style 410 anatomic implants. Size 360cc. Dual plane. I could NOT be happier! Im 35 and have a 1.5 and 3.5 year old both were breast fed. I lost all fullness and definitely had some laxity. I was really didn't want to do a lift and my surgeon was great in working with me to give me the best option without one. I'm really happy with the route we took! More

A Real Game Changer - Sarasota, FL - “I absolutely feel my experience with Dr. Derby, the nurses and the staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center could not have been better!I was very hesitant to get any plastic surgery for one big reasons: Any surgery that is optional should be avoided - why take the risk! But after years of trying to get rid of the fat around my stomach and flanks, I started to consider a tummy tuck. I finally got the courage to schedule an appointment and I met with Dr. Derby at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center.From the very first visit with Dr. Derby I felt extremely comfortable with him. He is professional, caring and patient. He spent plenty of time with me answering all my questions and concerns, but most of all he listened to what I wanted, he did not tell me what I needed but offered what he could do to provide me with the desired results. He told me the truth about what the risks were and what was involved to get the results I wanted.We also discussed the added health benefits I would see when my weakened abdominal muscles are repaired. We both agreed this would be a real "Game Changer" for me. Not just my appearance but at the gym as well. I am 57 years old and having a stable core is critical to living an active life as we get older. Dr. Derby is extremely knowledgeable about his profession and you can tell he loves what he does!So…. I scheduled my abdominoplasty/tummy tuck and I am happy to say my results were more than I could have hoped for! I no longer hate to shop for clothes or need to dress to hide my flaws. In fact, I love to dress again! I can feel the changes to my core already and can't wait to get back to the gym!The support I am receiving after my surgery from Dr. Derby is amazing. At my follow up visits, I receive undivided and unhurried attention from him and the staff. The staff is very supportive and helpful. They understand my needs and have wonderful advice and insights for me during my recovery.Abdominoplasty/tummy tuck is a serious major surgery and you should not risk your looks or your life with the wrong surgeon! I got the results I wanted and I will have any other procedures done at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center and by Dr. Derby because he is an excellent doctor, surgeon, and artist! I highly recommend Dr. Derby I know you will love him too!” - - After years of trying to get rid of the fat around my stomach and flanks, I had a tummy tuck. My procedure lasted 6 hours because I had abdominal muscle and skin tightening along with liposuction, a new belly button, a hernia repair and I had drainage tubes inserted. Days and weeks after my surgery I questioned my judgment as to why I inflicted this kind of pain on myself! The recovery was painful in the beginning but once the drains came out I started feel like myself again. I am now 2 months’ post-surgery and I am so GLAD I had this procedure done. I am looking and feeling better and better every day! 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

Best Decision and Great Results - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel is incredibly talent and patient-oriented. He explained the procedure in detail, was always ready to answer questions, and prepared me for the surgery and post-op period. He has an eye for aesthetics and will really look at your body type to maximize the overall result. His stitches are so think you can hardly see the scar. I can only highly recommend him - - If you are thinking about a breast reduction surgery, I cannot recommend Dr Engel and his team enough. From the preoperative care and explanations, to the surgery and post-op care - they were incredibly competent, friendly and efficient. It took less than 24 hrs post-op to realise how my life was changed by the operation. The result is stunning - you can hardly see any scars (2 weeks post op). The doctors and medical team are really well trained - which is what you need for an operation like this - the aesthetic result is as close to perfection you can get. Gone is the backpack and I am standing upright all the time. I would recommend making them smaller than you might think initially - I went from a DD to a B cup and it looks perfect More

My Eyes - Sarasota, FL - I don't look "plastic" but like a gently youthful 67 yr old. The work is conservative and not overdone. 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.

After going to three other board-certified doctors, I chose Dr. Scott Engle.

35 Yr Old, Single Mom with Amazing Tummy Tuck Results. Thank You Dr. Engel! - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is knowledgeable, thorough, professional yet very personable, great bedside manner and a true artist. He definitely has a gift! He is supported by a great staff and I will continue to highly recommend him and Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. I look forward to my next procedure with him, a lift and breast augmentation, in the future. I will without a doubt go into it with complete confidence. Thank you for my beautiful new belly! - - I want to give a big THANK YOU to Dr. Engel and all his staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. I am a 35 yr old single mom with a now 13yr old son. At 22, when I was pregnant with my son, I gained 40 lbs and weighed in at a total of 204 lbs by the end of my pregnancy. Needless to say, I ended up with severe stretch marks and loose skin. After having my son I've worked very hard over the years to get and stay in shape. Yet was never able to tighten the flabby, loose, unwanted, unsightly skin on my abdomen despite all my efforts and healthy diet. I am 5'8 and pre surgery I have maintained an avg. of 130lbs for several years. However I was still extremely self conscious of my stomach wearing clothes or not. I live in one of the most beautiful beach communities and for the past 13 years I would avoid any activity that required being in a bathing suit like the plague. Its has been extremely emotionally taxing for the last 13 years. Finally at 35 I was tired of not being able to enjoy the beauty around me. I made the decision I deserved to feel good. I was familiar with Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center because I have been seeing Bridget Forgette (who is amazing by the way), their PA for my sclerotherapy and Botox for several years. In my thorough research Dr. Engel came highly recommended and from word of mouth is well know in the area for all areas of his work especially abdominoplasty aka Tummy tucks. Even though I knew I really wanted to have this procedure, naturally there was still a great amount of fear with me being a single mom. I questioned, was this out of vanity? Was this a selfish thing to do for myself financially? I was concerned about going under general anesthesia, the recovery, how long I was going to be out of work, etc. After my initial consultation with Dr. Engel I was completely comforted and confident I was in good hands and he was the surgeon for me. I scheduled my sugery for July 13th, 2015, the same day of my consultation. Its been almost 2 mos since my surgery and Dr. Engel's work has far exceeded my expectations. I am so pleased with my results! its been a smooth recovery and everything is healing beautifully. I am obsessed with my beautiful new belly button!! Yesterday, Sept. 6, 2015 was my first visit to the beach, in a bikini and I was, for the first time in 13 years, confident enough to have my picture taken and take my cover up off standing up. It seriously brought tears to my eyes to feel this good in my own skin again. This was all made possible by Dr. Engel, his expertise and staff. I also want to thank his nurses, especially Lisa, for answering any questions and concerns I had leading up to the surgery and post op. I had a lot of questions and they were always patient and comforting with me. My phone calls, if not taken immediately, were returned in a timely manner. This also built my confidence in my decision that I was with the right doctor and practice. Today I feel like a new person, I have a new sense of self and my body back. The recovery had its tough moments but I would do this surgery ten times over. This was one of the best things I have ever done for and myself. Dr. Engel made my dream a reality... I can't say thank you enough!Please see for yourself below my before and after... the after photo was taken approx 6 weeks post op.Tracie J. More

Feeling Younger Every Day - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel was personable, caring and very concerned about how I feel. He was able to assure me that although I looked like I had been hit by a truck the day of surgery that it would be all ok. He was right, I am very pleased with the results and would recommend him to anyone who wants realistic results. - - Immediately after surgery people noticed a significant change in my appearance. My friends and I continue to admire the work that Dr. Engle performed for me, his attention to detail is second to none. His commitment to his patients is that you will not look far better but not different. I cannot say enough about his ability to make me comfortable and truly believe that he cares about me and my results. More

42 Yrs Old - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel is awesome. My primary visit was for breast aug and breast lift but also decided to get Botox and Juviderm. He took his time and went over everything in detail. Wonderful down to earth Dr. Highly recommended. - - I was really excited to fill in my lines around my chin. I had been thinking about this as the last few years gravity as gotten the best of me. I ended up doing Juviderm and Botox. So far I'm really happy with the Botox and the Juviderm is working its wonders. The Dr said it would take a full week to do its thing and so far it's looking really good. I will hopefully be able to edit and post pics in a week. I want everyone to see the full results. Stay tuned. Defiantly worth the money from what I can see so far. More

25yrs, 1 Child, Correcting Asymmetry and Adding Size W/ Saline Unders - Sarasota, FL - What a great doctor with a great sense of humor! He answered most of my questions before i could even ask! He is a perfectionist and will treat you with the respect of one of his own family members! I truly couldnt be happier with my doctor choice! - - This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, ever since i was a girl I have been wearing extra padded bras and just waiting for the boob fairy to come bless me, alas she blessed the left side with a nice C cup but the right side was an under developed B. after my daughter the difference became more noticeable, i breast fed for 11 months and my right breast barely produced anything, which only served to make my asymmetry even worse. Since I don't plan on anymore children I took the plunge! I have had a wonderful support system and My doctor Scott Engel was absolutely perfect! Engel was professional but funny and extremely helpful and honest about the results we could expect, he recommended a lift on my bigger side, but i really didn't want that, he said he could still achieve a great result either way so we went with 485cc on the right and 340cc on the left (big difference!!!) and during the procedure he said my right side was quite a challenge because my muscle and tissue was strangely developed, so he ended up putting a high profile in my left side and a medium profile in the other so he could achieve the most symmetry, he had even tried the other implant and wasn't satisfied with the way it looked. I feel like i couldn't have been in better hands, he listened to my wants and made my dreams come true!!! I'm only 4 days post op but i already looooove them!!!!! The OR is in the sarasota plastic surgery center building so it's a one stop shop! haha but the facilities are immaculate! More

45 Year Old Needing a Little TLC - Sarasota, FL - I loved my doctor. He was so kind and personal. He listen to what I wanted to accomplish. And then he gave his professional opinion and walked me through what would happen. I felt secure in his hands. I think my biggest worry was pain. He made sure that I was comfortable. I just had my yearly GYN appointment and my doctor was impressed with my scars. She asked for his name. She even said that I had a really cute belly button. Dr Engel is truly amazing at what he does. I am impressed with my body and so so happy I did it. I am so grateful for his staff as well. They were just a phone call away before and after the surgery with answers to anything that was of a concern to me. The nurses are so sweet and kind. Every person that I met at Dr Engels office really loves what they do because of how they all worked as a team for my benefit. I could go on and on but I wont. I loved my experience and I love my new body!!!!!!! - - I just wanted a flat stomach. After three kids my stomach sat in my lap. I wanted so bad to look good again. Pros are you feel better about yourself number one, and you get to buy new clothes because everything is to big now. The only con would be just laying low for a few weeks. Had to hire a little help.

34 Years Old with 55 Year Old Breasts, No Kids. No Fair! Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel was amazing! He's known for his perfectionism and professionalism and l can attest to both.He was patient and listened to what l wanted and recommended the best options for the best outcome. I am so pleased with the whole process! Dr. Engel and his staff put me at ease and everything was well explained and thorough. Follow-up procedures and post op care were amazing. My whole journey began long distance and I never thought it'd have been so easy. They made this happen for me. I can't say it enough. Go see Dr. Engel! - - I've always thought there was something wrong with my breasts. Even when they developed they had an odd shape; kinda saggy, triangular shape with large nipple pointing at the floor. Nothing like ld seen on TV or coveted as a tween! And then l did a natural bodybuilding show when l was 19 and they just never recovered and looked worse. I started taking out my contacts before l'd take off my clothes so l wouldn't have to see them. It's been that way to this day and l decided for my 35th birthday next month l'd treat myself to a new set of BOOBS. Not breasts. Boobs! Haha! It's not fair that l'm 34 with no kids and single and my breasts look 55 and about to retire! I've wanted this for so long and was surprised at all the support. My mom had breast cancer several years ago and had begun to look into reconstructive surgery. She ended up not doing it but found an awesome doctor in the process. So l flew from Anchorage, AK to Sarasota, FL to see Dr. Scott Engel. Soooo glad l did. I'll post my before pics and then show my progress since lve already had the surgery. Sorry l didn't post sooner. I was nervous but this site proved invaluable to me through all this and l must share back! I'm 5'4" and about 140, pretty muscular build. Before l was a saggy 36 B/C. Wanted D-DD perky boobs to balance my frame and give me a super feminine body party since l feel a little masculine. I went with round, HP silicone 425cc in both breast. The Dr. found my breasts were slightly tubular? (explains weird shape) and severe ptosis (so sad). Here's my journey to date! I'm so glad l did this! More

This Mommy Needed a Makeover! Sarasota, FL - I loved Dr.Mobley. He really took the time to answer my questions and made me feel at ease. I was most nervous about the anesthesia but the staff was very helpful and comforting. - - After being pregnant and breastfeeding 2 babies, wanted to do something for myself. I was able to lose all my baby weight but I didn't look the same. Dr. Mobley listened to what I wanted and helped me decide what surgery would be right for me. I am thrilled with the results (and so is my husband!) I wouldn't change a thing! More

18 Years Old, First Ever Procedure - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel was very professional and made sure to talk me through the pros, the cons, and the different types of implants that were available before I made my decision so that I didn't have any unanswered questions or doubts going into my surgery. The rest of the staff was also very nice and helped me feel comfortable. Overall a great experience. - - I wanted to go up a few cup sizes from my natural 34 B-cup bust to a now 34D and had a wonderful experience at the Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Everyone was very helpful and professional and I was confident that I would be in good hands for my procedure. I couldn't be happier with my results and am very glad I decided to do it. More

43-year Old with "Pooch" That I Couldn't Get Rid Of!!! Sarasota, FL - Dr. Scott Engel is incredible. I've has consultations by other plastic surgeons in the past and no one took the time to explain the entire procedure like he did. Whether deciding on the size of implants to weighing the pros/cons of a mini vs. full tummy tuck, I felt secure Dr. Engel was fully aware of what I wanted. Not only did he take the time in my consult and pre-op appointment but the surgery day he was caring and reassuring. I wasn't nervous which had everything to do with my understanding of the surgery and his expertise. Plastic surgery is a private matter except I feel compelled to tell anyone who is considering to go see Dr. Engel because I feel so strongly that he is the type of doctor who makes all the difference (results and relationship)!!!! - - I finally have my body back!!! My breast lift with implants makes me feel beautiful again. I just left my follow-up with Dr. Engel and told him that I wish I would have done the surgery sooner because I LOVE the results. Not only is he amazing with his surgical skills but my results far exceed my expectations. More

37 Year Old/Life Changing Surgery - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel was very thorough in the eduction of my elected procedures, as was his staff. I believe and felt that Dr. Engel truly understood my concerns and desired results. During my consultation, I felt very comfortable and was able to relax knowing that I had chosen the best board certified plastic surgeon to address my concerns and meet my cosmetic desires. The day of surgery my nerves quickly went into overload once I enter the facility. Then I was greeted by the wonderful surgical staff followed by Dr. Engel. I was finally ready to undergo surgery thanks to Dr. Engel's ability to ease my worries and make me laugh. I remember Dr. Engel speaking to me prior to my discharge, which I believe put my "after surgery" nerves at ease. The following day I met with Dr. Engel and his staff. At this appointment, I was again reassured that I had made the appropriate surgical and surgeon decisions. Again, THANK YOU Dr. Engel!! - - I have always been up and down with my weight most of my teenage/adult life. I gained the majority of my weight through difficult pregnancies. With one successful pregnancy, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter (17 years ago). Through the years she became an avid runner and I had the desire to be able to run 5k's/marathon's with her. Over the past five years that desire lead me to dropping 50+ pounds. I was very happy and excited by the weight loss. However, I was left with excess skin, mostly in my abdominal area, which left me feeling very depressed and not so excited to run or workout. I decided to seek consultation for a tummy tuck, breast reduction/lift and liposuction. After much research, I decided to consult with Dr. Engel. As the appointment neared, I became very nervous and wasn't so sure I would keep the appointment. Well, the day came and I kept the appointment. After a very thorough consultation and exam with Dr. Engel and his staff, I was more than excited to follow through with surgery. Three weeks later I underwent surgery for a tummy tuck, breast reduction/lift with fat grafting (to achieve breast fullness, I opted not to have implants) and liposuction of thighs/abdomen. The day after surgery, I was immediately satisfied and knew that I had made the right decision with the right surgeon. I am now 8 weeks postoperative and couldn't be enjoying my renewed life more. This surgery has given me back apart of myself that I thought I had lost forever....the ability to look in the mirror and smile, not cry! I am now in the process of training to run my first 5k with my daughter this October! Thank you Dr. Engel!!! More

Very Happy With My Results! - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel was very welcoming and made me feel comfortable through out each and every visit. He is very funny. He educated me on the different types of implants, sizes and profiles. He was able to answer every question I had before I even asked it. If you're thinking about getting a BA, I RECOMMEND HIM!!!! No questions asked. I will go back to Dr. Engel every time for any and all other BA surgeries needed. He gave me a natural look that I didn't think I was going to like at first because I thought they would be too small (but after the drop & fluff...which is still happening) they look more full on the bottom so I understand why he recommended I not go any bigger...My goal was to proportion my body because I am a little more bottom heavy. So I thought big big big to even it out, but he exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier with my results. I have so much more confidence because of him. Thank you SO much Dr. Engel. - - I absolutely would recommend Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center TO EVERYONE who is thinking about getting a BA. They have the friendliest team and are so welcoming! They answered all of my questions and even gave me a lot more information to prepare me for what was to come with my surgery pre and post op. More

Older Woman, 57, with Severe Sagging Thigh Skin with Fatty Nodules. - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is very intelligent and knowledgeable. His bedside manner is only surpassed by his outstanding skill in the surgery suite. He is dedicated to his patients and takes all the time necessary to do things so they meet his high quality standards. I was very pleased with my entire experience. Dr. Engel is very warm, caring and trustworthy...with a sense of humor. I hold him in high regard and do recommend his practice without hesitation. - - I had very, very ugly and unsightly thighs. There were visible lumps of fatty tissue with drapes of loose skin. I am not overweight but I could only wear pants or a long dress or skirt. Without surgery my life would continue to be less than fully lived. I have researched the thigh lift and understand it is the most difficult procedure for both patient and surgeon. It is imperative you decide on a board certified specialist for this procedure or risk some very sad and disappointing results.My surgeon, Dr. Scott Engel MD, is, in my humble opinion, the very best in his field. My legs are beautiful! You cannot imagine my delight going from practically deformed to looking 10 years younger with very tight, shapely legs. Without a doubt you need to consult with Dr. Engel in Sarasota FL before deciding on your surgery specialist. You will be very pleased indeed! More

34DDD with a Bad Shape-lift, removal of tissue, then implants - I've been to three other surgeons over the years for consults and felt the most comfortable with Dr. Mobley and his staff. Every single member of the staff in this practice is amazing, which to me is huge. I went to a surgeon right before Dr. Mobley who was recommended to me by two friends. I liked the surgeon but didn't go with him because of his staff and the office experience. Completely the opposite at Sarasota Plastic Surgery. Dr. Mobley is incredibly talented and takes pride in his work. He has a reassuring and confident manner, which is what I needed, especially being scared to death of my first surgery. Here's something that may sound odd but that was a huge deciding factor for me: Dr. Mobley, unlike every other surgeon I had consults with, meets with you when you're fully clothed first before you get almost naked in the paper robe. I just thought that was so cool, because I get major anxiety being naked in front of a stranger, doctor or not! I felt like this gave him the chance to see me as I look every day so he could tell what kind of look to give me with my boobs. Some people may not care, but it just made me feel so much more at ease to talk to him when I was dressed. He takes all the time you need to answer questions and educate you without making you feel rushed. I'm very happy with the results of my breast lift with implants aside from an unavoidable areola size issue, but I wanted to get lipo anyway so I can get it fixed then. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Mobley to anyone. - - I'm 36 years old, I have one daughter who's 10. I nursed her for 14 months but my boobs have always been big and kinda low. I got married a year ago (we've been together for 7.5 years) and I guess we're not having any more kids. We talk about it every once in a while but we agree the time isn't right. Well, I'm not gettin any younger so the cutoff time is quickly approaching! Obviously I know people have babies all the time in their late 30's, early 40's-I just personally don't want to do that, especially with a daughter who's so much older. Anyway, the point is that I'm ready to get a breast lift, I've wanted to do it for years. I first had a consultation in 2008 and didn't have the $ and didn't want to go into debt for it. I've had two consultations this year and definitely preferred one surgeon over the other-the staff and the whole office experience. I know surgeon # 1 is good, I have 2 friends who have had beautiful BA's with him, but the office experience was not good which was a big deal to me. So now I'm scheduled with Surgeon #2 for 5/22. We discussed a slight reduction with a lift and implants. I love the shape of adding implants although I'm really nervous about adding something foreign to my body. We also discussed Lipo of the abdomen. I've gained about 12 lbs since I got married last year but it's stress and diet. I go to crossfit 4-5 times a week, I just can't get my eating in check. Anyway, I'm hoping to lose the weight before surgery and NOT get the Lipo. My weight fluctuates about 10-15 lbs and I'm so sick of it. I'm only 5'2 so it makes a huge difference!! I had smart Lipo in 2010 on my flanks and arms and really regretted it. I can't tell any difference on my arms at all, they've always been heavy. My flanks are ok but with my stupid weight fluctuations, the lbs I put on all went to my front stomach. When I did the smart Lipo, I wanted to get my front tummy done but they said I had an umbilical hernia (must've been born with it) and they couldn't do it. This surgeon said that's not a problem, they just avoid the hernia area. I have so many thoughts running through my mind about the whole procedure, and I'm grateful for this site. My husband says every night when I'm on my ipad, "you lookin at boobies again?", haha. I'm just learning so much from you ladies and I'm the type to want to be completely armed with knowledge!! More

25 Years Old - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is a great doctor who I highly recommend. He spoke with me in debth about the procedure and made me feel comfortable the whole way through. He even made my mother feel comfortable because she did not agree with my decision. He has been amazing before and after my surgery. I can honestly say he cares about the well-being of his patients. There are many reasons why he is a great doctor but the main one is that my breasts look great! - - I have weighed the pros and cons of getting a breast augmentation for many years. For some reason this year was the year. I am young and wanted to look my best. I have always been concerned with this area of my body and needed to feel better about myself. Especially moving to Florida where you are always in a bikini. When I walked into the office I was extremely scared, but the staff here made me feel very comfortable. More

Tummy Tuck and Lipo After 100 Pound Weight Loss - Sarasota, FL - Choosing Dr. Engel to perform my procedure was the best decision I could have made. He took a full hour with me during my consult to answer all my questions and set realistic expectations. I liked that he said he treats his patients the same way he would want his own wife treated if she was on the table. That really won my husband over! Everyone at the center are wonderful, my care was top notch before, during, and after surgery. My end results are absolutely incredible. More than I could have ever hoped for! I will be seeing Dr. Engel again to do my breast augmentation in a few months. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do it! - - After losing 105 pounds I had a lot of extra skin on my tummy and fat on my sides that wouldn't budge! I had two consults with Dr. Engel and spoke about allmy areas of concern. We mapped out a few procedures I will do over 2-3 surgeries. His honesty and opinion on how to split up the procedures was very helpfulto me. I have a young baby so need to splitup the surgeries so I can recover more quickly from each one and go back to being a mommy ASAP. More

Dr. Scott Engel Fixed my Nose!! He is Fantastic!! -Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is one of the most thorough doctors I have ever met. He spent more time with me than any other doctor I have ever been to. He made me feel incredibly comfortable with the procedure and his plan. He is a truely gifted surgeon. His staff is second to none, and hold him in very high regard. Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center is a first class facility. I recommend him to anyone looking into having cosmetic surgery. I will be sending all my friends and family to him. Thank you Dr. Engel for improving the look of my nose!! - - I am a 67 year old man who never liked the appearance of my nose. Most of my life I spent taking care of my family and working and never spent money on myself. I finally got the time and courage to find out information about a nose job with Dr. Engel. He was a great doctor and gave me all the information I needed to decide to go forward with it. I am thrilled with the results. It was much easier than I expected. Dr. Engel is a tremendous surgeon. I love my nose and wish I would have done this a long time ago!! More

Wish I Would Have Done It Sooner!! - Sarasota, FL - I had contemplated for a few years whether or not to get the lift and reduction. After having the procedure, I am so pleased and wished I hadn't waited so long. Dr. Scott Engel was amazing!! I never thought after nursing two children my boobies would ever look the way they did when I was in my twenties. I was wrong. Dr. Engel is so talented and I really feel as though my boobies are back!! His kindness, caring and knowledge was unmatchable. Dr. Engel made my experience so relaxing. As well as his staff. If you are a mom who sacficed the look of your once perky boobies, then you too deserve to visit Dr. Engel and get those babies back!!!! More

371CC Silicone Unders - Looking to get back what I had and They are Back!!! - Sarasota, FL - I met with 3 differant PS's and Dr. Engel took the most time to explain the procedure and honestly tell me what my results would be. Also took measurements and went over differant profiles etc. He didn't rush me out of the office like one of the PS's I saw did. He made me feel like I could spend as much time as needed to talk with him.After having my pre op with Dr Engel I am even more confident I chose well. He is easy to talk to and really takes the time to explain realistically what the outcome will be and my differant options.After just about 3 weeks I am so pleased with the results! I had issues with my left breast being larger and lower and he explained how he tried different techniques and sizes during the surgery to get them just right. I was really impressed that he took the extra time and attention to get results that I'd be happy with. The post op appointments went great so far, he has a great sense of humor and really makes you feel comfortable while answering all your questions and not making you feel rushed out of his office. In addition to that they have a wonderful nurses staff! - - I have been reading reviews on this website for a few weeks now and as my BA date gets closer I decided to write my story, it's seems like a nice way to keep a journal and get support and helpful information from others who have had BA's. Here is a little about me and why I have made the decision to get a BA. Like most women on here I am looking to get back what I used to have before kids (I have one son age 12) and age took a toll on my body and to feel better about myself. Alot of things beyond my control have made me feel very uncomfortable with my body and as a woman. I had a very difficult delivery and was told after my sons birth that I should not have any more children which devistated me. Due to a surgery I had immediately after my sons birth I developed a ventral hernia that became incarcerated and had to have another emergency surgery that left terrible scars on my stomach and damaged muscle I also have a little loose skin under my belly button area. Since then I have never been able to wear a bikini and I make sure I wear shirts long enough that there is no chance of anyone seeing my scars. I looked into getting a small tummy tuck to repair that damage and was told I could not because of the type of repair I had for my ventral hernia - another devastation :( Two years ago I had to have a hysterectomy..not that I was going to have more children but I guess all the things added up to me feeling like less of a woman. Now, as happens with time, I have gone from a very full C cup to a very deflated barely B cup. Despite all that I am always a very upbeat, cheerful and life loving person. So I made the decision to get my boobs back :) I am a single mother but have been dating a wonderful man for 3 years. He was surprised at my decision at first but totally supportive because he realizes it is something that will make me feel good about myself. I am scheduled for surgery on Nov. 26th and have so far decided on under the muscle, silicone moderate plus profile but not sure on cc's yet. My pre op is this week so I am ready to show my PS my wish boob pics and see what he thinks. Also want to note that I am very active in running, I do alot of 5K, 10K races am training for my first half marathon in the early part of 2014 so I don't want to go huge just get the fullness back in the upper area (without affecting my race times).My Stats:Age: 43Weight: 115Height: 5'2"Cup Size: sad looking BBA info:SiliconeUnder the muscleModerate Plus profileprobably 350cc's More

Tummy Tuck W/lipo to Hips and Thighs - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel was very honest and upfront about the results I should expect. He was very personable and professional, making myself and my husband very comfortable right from the start. The results definitely exceeded my expectations! I am very grateful to have had such a skilled Doctor. He is an asset to his field. - - I had a large sack in front from 3 C-sections and weight gain. I found it difficult to do so many things because this sack was always in the way. I was very scared to go through the procedure, but Dr. Engel and his staff were excellent in every way! They were very thorough and available to answer my questions. All instructions were written out and provided ahead of time, which allowed me and my family to be prepared. Dr Engel did a fantastic job! I am amazed at how my abdomen looks! More

Best Decision Ever! - Sarasota, FL - Dr Scott Engel is an amazing, competent and caring surgeon. I met with various surgeons before making my final decision. As soon as I met Dr. Engel, I knew he was the right doctor for me. He has a wealth of knowledge and information. He was patient and willing to answer and address my large list of questions and concerns. He is very professional and always has a nurse in the room at all times. His bedside manner was wonderful. When I contacted him with a question after the procedure, he was extremely quick to respond. The office staff is amazing and such a pleasure to deal with. I have recommended him to many. In fact, I feel so comfortable and confident in his artistry that I am planning to use him for my daughter's rhinoplasty in the near future. - - I am a 45 year old very active mother of three. I was able to keep my body in great shape with cardio, weight training, pilates and yoga, but despite all of the chest presses, flys and push ups, could not do much to help the sagging breasts. I was tired of uncomfortable push-up bras and the pain in my neck in the summer from tying my bikini straps so tight. I was initially just planning to do a breast lift, but after traveling to Florida and speaking with my surgeon, Dr. Scott Engel, we decided that the implants would give me the look that I wanted. The procedure went very well. Recovery was easier than I anticipated. I was a little sore and uncomfortable the first 2 days, but by day 3 I was at the pool in a cover up. I was not ready for a bikini top yet because I was still bandaged. The results were absolutely amazing! I did not want to be too big....I went from a 34B to a 36C. My breasts are very natural looking and fit my body. Not fake looking at all!! A year and a half later, they still look amazing. In fact, when I saw my doctor in my hometown for my annual exam and mammogram, she was amazed at how fabulous I looked and wanted the name of my surgeon. I would absolutely recommend the procedure and Dr. Scott Engel. More

Mommy's New Boobies! - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel is absolutely amazing! From the consultation to post op, he calmed my nerves, answered all questions and asked me what I wanted and what my concerns are. I felt that my wants and desires were the most important to him. I trusted Dr Engel with my breast lift and augmentation and I was not disappointed at all. He is truly an artist! I am beyond happy with my results and already have friends who want to have Dr Engel do their surgeries. Amazing work! - - Hello all! A little about me....I'm a 34 year old mother of 2 beautiful babies, ages 5 and 4. I am 5'1", ~114lbs and currently in a 32B/34A bra. I don't fill them out at all but when I go to a smaller cup my saggy gross skin seeps over the tops of the bras. I breast-fed both of my kids and my boobs ballooned! I believe I was in a 34DD/36D when I was pregnant/breast feeding. As a result of breast feeding my once perky, rarely had to wear a bra boobies have turned into saggy, jelly-feeling nastiness. I have been talking about getting a BL pretty much since my daughter (my youngest) was a year old and now that she is turning 4, I finally decided to take the plunge. I don't have enough courage to post pics yet but I will. I know they are so helpful for everyone as well as myself. My original thought was just a BL but after consult, Dr showed me what I would have left after a lift and it is pretty dreadful. I know that I need help in the fullness area for sure! My pre-op appointment is this Thursday, 10/10, with my surgery on Wednesday, 10/23. I am so excited and anxious as well as extremely nervous. My goal is to be a full B, small C but everything I'm hearing/reading is to go a little bigger. I am pretty small and don't want it to be obvious that I've had a BA. I am a mom and just want natural-looking breasts that fit my body. Hopefully the fitting will help. PS said at consult that he thinks 300 or 325 might do the trick. We shall see! More

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

25 Year Old. 100 Pounds. 2 Breast Fed Children - Sarasota, FL - From the moment I first met him, he made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Before I could even ask any questions or express concerns, he went through a plethora of information to describe himself, the facility, and the difference between Plastic Surgery & cosmetic surgery board certified. I had the desire to look natural and as big as possible for my small frame. I was not looking for some hooter girl boobs. He had a 3D image of my body and showed me the possibilities between silicone, saline, and anatomic implants. I decided on the anatomic (gummy bear) implants under the muscle because they were irrupturable, natural shaped, and had zero rippling. I had the surgery about 3 weeks after my first consultation. The first week was worse than natural child birth. I was going from a negative A cup to 420 cc's, which ended up settling to a 32D. I am 100% satisfied with the final product, the doctor, and the facility. Lifetime warranty included. More

30s Mom Hoping for Thinner Thighs and Bigger Boobs! - I performed a bunch of research on potential doctors for my breast fat transfer. Not all plastic surgeons perform this type of procedure, and I wanted to make sure I had a well-trained, caring, and highly rated board certified plastic surgeon. I researched doctors from the Tampa area down to Naples. I was impressed with Dr. Engel's education, training at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, and glowing patient reviews. I went to a couple consultations and decided on Dr. Engel because he matched my criteria above as well as being smart, patient, and compassionate. Even though he looked good on paper, I still thoroughly questioned him to make sure he knew his stuff. He was surprised that I cared so much about the details, and he told me not to worry because he's very experienced and has even taught other doctors about fat transfer. Fortunately, he still took the time to answer my long list of questions. Dr. Engel made me feel like he would spend as much time with me as I needed. I'm often nervous at doctor appointments and shy about about being naked, but thankfully Dr. Engel is considerate and makes me feel comfortable. I liked his reassuring words. He is charming, personable, and has a good sense of humor. Before surgery, Dr. Engel generously offered to improve a couple more areas of my body. He truly cared about giving me the best result possible, no matter if it took him more time and effort. I estimate he performed at least $1000 (probably more) of complimentary work for me. He's similar to me in that he wants to do the best job possible (perfectionist quality that I like). I was actually hesitant at first to agree to the extra work because it was unexpected. But then Dr. Engel said, "I'm just going to make you more pretty." So I said yes. How can I argue with my expert plastic surgeon who wants to go above and beyond, doing bonus work just to make me "more pretty?" He must take pride in his work. When Dr. Engel came in before surgery, he was in a really good mood and wanted to make feel at ease. He could tell I was getting extremely nervous, so he held my hands and reassured me he would take care of me. He reiterated that he would treat me as well as if I was his wife (he said that in our consultations too, and he truly seems genuine when he says it). He calmed my nerves, and the surgery indeed went well. My recovery has been much easier than expected too! Something that I liked about the day of surgery is when Dr. Engel said I was one of his most educated patients during pre-op (smart girls rule). At our follow-up, he emphasized how much he cared about me when he said that he was thinking about me all weekend, hoping that I was recovering well. I ended up rating this procedure as "worth it" because I think I got what I paid for... but in hindsight, there was a mistake of not having additional fat harvested. I liked my body improvements overall, but there wasn’t enough fat from just my stomach and thighs to be able to go up a full cup and reach my goal. I believe I should have been advised to have lipo on more areas. Also, I am bothered by some unevenness from liposuction, however, I was informed it can be a side effect. In spite of that, I have been satisfied by Dr. Engel overall and plan to see him for additional treatments in the future. From my research, I found Dr. Engel to be a family man and one that gives back to his community. I feel secure not only being in the hands of an excellent doctor but also a good person. For a very detailed account of my breast fat transfer experience, check out my realself procedure review. More

Botox Virgin (Not for Long!) - I chose Dr. Engel for a previous procedure because he's an excellent board certified plastic surgeon, and then I found he is also an experienced injector. I consulted Dr. Engel about my forehead wrinkles, and he said that Botox would be a good treatment. I asked him about anti-aging treatments for my whole face as well, and he didn't recommend anything else like fillers or lasers. He said I was still young and naturally beautiful, which was pleasing. He could have made lots more money off me, but instead Dr. Engel seems honest and honorable. I feel like I can trust him to put my interests first. I like that he is conservative with these treatments, and I think we have the same goal of a natural, beautiful result. From my experience, Dr. Engel is exceptionally smart, patient, and caring.

I asked him about anti-aging treatments for my whole face as well, and he didn't recommend anything else like fillers or lasers. He said I was still young and naturally beautiful, which was pleasing. He could have made lots more money off me, but instead Dr. Engel seems honest and honorable. I feel like I can trust him to put my interests first. I like that he is conservative with these treatments, and I think we have the same goal of a natural, beautiful result. From my experience, Dr. Engel is exceptionally smart, patient, and caring.

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

Excellent! - Very professional and personable, he didn't rush through my appointments and always answered my questions thoroughly - - An amazing surgeon! My surgery was 2 1/2 weeks ago and I am already very happy with my results. Dr Mobley is very knowledgable and skilled and I felt very comfortable in my decision to use him. He is well known in this area as one of the top plastic surgeons. The staff and nurses are all top notch. I will definitely be back???? More

Excited and Nervous! 34h to 34c/d (I Hope) - Sarasota, FL - Loved meeting him. Spent so much time with me! Will review surgery after its done. - - One week to go! I have been on this site for over a year and it's finally my turn! I have read, laughed, and commented and just love all your stories!! I started looking at doctors last year and just was so unsure if I wanted to do this (I am afraid of looking off without my chest) and did not find a doctor that I really clicked with.So, I started the process again this year, around March, met my final Doctor, and the countdown began! My husband is still on the fence, he loves my chest, but I am so tired of the weight! And I know they will only get bigger and droopier!I have worked hard the last 4 months getting healthy, eating well, losing some weight and firming up, and mentally preparing for this. Of course, I am nervous and excited and know that no matter how much I prepare, it's going to overwhelm me!I am 5'2", 162 pounds, and am a 34 H (with left being about 200cc bigger). I am hoping for some perky small D's when this is all done, but will be ok if they are C's (so insurance covers it).Mostly, I just wanted to say thank you to all the RS women who came before me, and posted your story, the good and the bad. I know I have seen more breasts in the last year, then in my whole life, but it has guided me in ways you will never know! Can't wait to be a member of the IBTC!! More

In my 40's, Athletic. 1 Child and Ready to Get my Breasts. Sarasota, FL - I wasn't going to post, but it's midnight before surgery and here I go. I have had 3 consults and felt comfortable with dr Engel. Ready to get my breast aug finally. I had a child, breast fed 13 months and the breasts show it. The implants picked were 340cc silicone unders. I vacillated between overs with gummy bear implant, but chose unders after weighing pros and cons. Fearful of capsular contraction, higher rate of rupture and gummy bears possibly rotating. The con of having a " snoopy" deformity dr says is 20%. That is having an abnormal contour on the lower part of my breast when naked. Ok I will post some shots after my surgery. Wish me luck! I hope t not too big. More

Breast Augmentation & Lift Revision 425 to 595 CCs, 21 Years Old - For most of my life I have been overweight, within the past 6 months I have lost 35 pounds. My highest weight was around 213 my freshman/sophomore year of college. Starting my weight loss journey at 206 (August 2013) and now weighing 171 (February 2014,) I have decided I would like to go forth with a breast augmentation due to the fact of all the lost volume in my breast. My mother has really encouraged me through this journey and so have many of my girlfriends, with a few exceptions. I would still like to lose another 20 pounds, putting me in the 150s. I'm between 5'8'' and 5'9'' so I'm not exactly sure what the best weight for me would be.I have had three consults with three wonderful plastic surgeons, and have decided to go forth with Dr. David Mobley of Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Dr. Mobley's staff is wonderful and made me feel very comfortable right away. Before my examination Dr. Mobley asked me a series of questions: saline vs silicone, my desired size and reasons for choosing this surgery. During my examination he informed me that I needed a minor lift (due to weight loss.) This is something I had thought of prior but because the other two surgeons didn't mention it I thought I was in the clear. Dr. Mobley explained the procedure and why it was best for me. Walking me through all of the Pros and Cons, I immediately knew he was going to be my surgeon because he had surpassed all of my expectations! He spent a great amount of time with me and made me feel very confident with the procedure.My procedure: Breast Augmentation with a Periareolar Mastopexy using High Profile Silicone Breast Implants.I haven't decided on the CCs but I'd like to be a "Perky" full C possible small D. I'm worried about going too big, so if you have any thoughts, please share! My surgery was originally set for May 15th (5 days after my 21st birthday) and my mother has encouraged me to push the surgery date up. So, as of last Friday, it is now April 17th. I am doing this for me and only me! I'd really like to feel confident and beautiful in my skin! Reading other women's blogs on Realself has been extremely helpful and very encouraging, so here I am, hoping to do the same thing! More

Finally, at the age of 51, and an empty nester, it's time for me!I am nervous about the surgery, as I've never had any type of abdominal surgery.I also want breast reduction done and am hoping for both to be completed the same day.Would love to hear from former patients!
