"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."- F. / RealSelf / Nov 16, 2016
"A "Miracle Worker" - Sarasota, FL - My experience with Dr. Derby was beyond what I was expecting. With having a severe difference between breasts, he made me feel so confident, safe, and at ease with knowing I was in good hands. Being so young, and feeling as if there was no hope for a change with my breasts, I felt pressure in finding the right doctor, but as soon as I met him in the consultation, I knew picking him was the best decision I have ever made. He was so understanding with my wants, he told me his expectations, and he made, what I call a miracle, happen. Prepping for my first surgery, you would expect to be completely filled with anxiety, he had me completely ready-to-go, and so excited for the outcome. He has followed up with me several times post surgery, and I love coming in for my post op appointments because his energy and attitude is contagious. Dr. Derby has 100% changed my life by accomplishing something that seemed so difficult to achieve, and made them completely transform better than we could have ever expected.

"I met Dr. Derby thru an emergency incident. I had split my lip wide open and it required 7-8 stitches. The results are so good that no one would know that I had injured my lip. I was so impressed with him that I asked him if he could possibly help me out with corrective surgery with my eyes. Previously, I had eyelid surgery 10 years ago. He suggested having a brow lift procedure. I had the best care before, during, and after the procedure. Dr. Derby is a highly skilled and talented surgeon."- B.M. / Healthgrades / Apr 14, 2017

Administering Restylane Defyne@headingTag>
During your Restylane Defyne appointment, we will help you reshape and gain fullness in the lines and folds around your mouth. First, you face will be cleansed before the injections begin. Your facial filler injector will then mark your face with ink, where the injections will be inserted. We will implement the Restylane Defyne with a fine needle. If you are worried about the pain of the injection, we can offer a topical numbing agent, but keep in mind the filler is also infused with lidocaine for pain. The number of injections and dosage will all be discussed in your planning session. Your appointment should last 30 – 40 minutes.
What to Expect@headingTag>
The results following a Restylane treatment are immediate. There may be swelling and redness around the treated areas, which will subside after several hours. Patients may resume work immediately but must avoid strenuous activities for about 24 hours. They are also advised not to put any pressure on the face and keep the head elevated so that the filler settles well to achieve the intended contours. Results may last up to one full year. This procedure is safe to repeat to maintain the desired results. For most patients, this is about every 6 months.

Restylane Defyne FAQs@headingTag>
Will this Injection Hurt?@headingTag>
We want to make your experience with these injections as painless as possible. Restylane Defyne is also made with lidocaine blended into the product as well. We can offer you a topical numbing agent on the skin as well as ice packs to help with the slight pain and swelling this injection induces.
Will it Just Fill In Wrinkles?@headingTag>
There are products within the Restylane family that are commonly used for lip augmentation. Restylane Defyne is best used to provide softer improvements within the deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines. These injections are given at mid-to-deep levels. You can consult with our team if you would like to learn more about other injectable treatments, or enhancing different areas of your face.
What about other treatments?@headingTag>
We do have requests from patients to combine Restylane Defyne with other treatments, such as a wrinkle relaxer like BOTOX®. This will depend on your particular case; however, many men and women do combine wrinkle relaxers and fillers for amazing results. If you would like to learn more about what cosmetic injectables or nonsurgical treatments are available at our plastic surgery office, we can answer any of your questions and make recommendations at your consultation appointment.
