Do Yourself a Favor and Go to Dr. Derby at Sarasota Plastic Surgery 12/10 Stars! - It is hard to put into words how perfect my experience was with Dr.Derby. After speaking to various other doctors I knew almost instantly over our virtual consultation that he was THE doctor for my breast augmentation + lift. Dr. Derby could not be more warm, caring, and attentive. He truly listened to what look I wanted, my concerns and fears, and answered every question I had. If you are considering having your breast done I can not speak more highly of Dr. Derby and his work. The staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery are also incredible. Each nurse I worked with was so sweet, attentive, and knowledgeable. The Anesthetist I worked with before my surgery had the best sense of humor and was so trustworthy and caring. If I could give Dr.Derby and Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center 12/10 I would!! Truly the best practice in Florida. More

My Life Changed Because of my Tummy Tuck - My stomach had been destroyed by going through the three pregnancies of my children. From the first consultation until the recovery process of my tummy tuck and breast lift, Dr Derby was incredible. He gave me realistic results to look forward to, he took his time explaining things and he had incredible bedside manner. The tummy tuck has transformed my life. I have regained my confidence. My body is similar to what it used to be before my pregnancies. I would go through all of this again if it meant I had these results. Dr Derby changed my life and I would recommend him if you are looking to gain your confidence back. More

Amazing Surgeon, Great Results, Highly Recommend! - I recently had my gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Derby and wow am I impressed. Dr. Derby is an amazing surgeon and master of his craft. He was there every step of the way, never did i feel rushed to make a decision and always answered my questions and concerns, he even gave me a personal phone call the night after surgery to make sure all was going well with the recovery process. He truly cares for the well being and happiness of his patients. I could have never imagined the results I have now are a reality, all because of Dr. Derby. Highly recommend! More

Great Dr and Great Results - From my very first appointment, I knew Dr. Derby was the person I wanted to do my Breast Reduction. He is a very caring person who took a lot of time with me and listened intently to my wishes. I am now 5 weeks post-op and couldn’t be happier with my results! After many years of back pain and shoulder issues, I noticed one day after surgery that I was so much lighter! Such a relief! If you have considered this surgery and have been hesitant, run, don’t walk, to see Dr. Derby! You will be glad you did!! More

Not enough room to fully explain how wonderful Dr. Derby and his staff are. Breast lift and fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty procedures. In short, 6 months out, my results have wildly exceeded anything I could have imagined. I am 58 years old, but my mind and body are 22 again. Dr. Derby is truly and artist. No other word will suffice. These procedures have changed my life, and my self-esteem. I like the way I look again and don’t hide behind my clothing. I have thanked Dr. Derby often for helping me complete my journey, and for just being the wonderful person and extremely talented surgeon that he is. More

Best Decision I Have Ever Made - I first met Dr. Derby at a plastic surgery workshop 6 months into my weight loss journey with Dr. Roa at Sarasota Memorial Bariatric Clinic. I was not ready for surgery, but tucked away the information for the future. What stuck with me the most from the workshop was Dr. Derby himself; his wonderful, approachable, sharp personality. I knew that when the time came, he would be my choice for my plastic surgeon.Fast forward 3 years and I decided that time was right. Having lost 118 pounds and meeting my goal, I was thrilled with my new, smaller body, however, the result of having 2 children and then gaining massive weight took a toll on my skin. I am not one of the fortunate ones that has skin that stretches and retracts. I had lived with giant stretch marks, droopy, stretches breast tissue and my stomach lying in my lap since giving birth. Massive weight gain just accentuated the problem. Although I could tuck everything into my clothing, standing in front of the mirror in my birthday suit was still rather disappointing because I did not feel thin with all the sagging skin.I scheduled my consult appointment with Dr. Derby to discuss my options and from the beginning of the appointment I knew I had made the right choice in surgeons. We had instant rapport and clicked. Most importantly we laughed and I felt totally at ease discussing our plan of action. We decided on two procedures; a breast lift with tissue removal, and a fleur del les abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Dr. Derby thoroughly explained the procedures, the length of the surgery and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed, in fact, Dr. Derby makes you feel like you are his only patient!Surgery day came and I asked Dr. Derby to take photos and videos for me, and he did. I had expected some instant gratification following surgery and that happened. Even at two weeks post-op I couldn’t believe the transformation. I had 7lbs of skin removed from my abdomen and for the first time in 36 years my abdomen was FLAT. My breast are ”nice, high, and perky”, even better than before having babies; they never looked this great. I was thrilled at my progress at the two week mark, not even able to fathom that it would get better! It does, swelling keeps coming down…amazing! I now look in the mirror and say “I remember her”. In short, 6 months out, my results have wildly exceeded anything I could have imagined. I am 58 years old, but my mind and body are 22 again. Dr. Derby is truly and artist. No other word will suffice. These procedures have changed my life, and my self-esteem. I like the way I look again and don’t hide behind my clothing. I have thanked Dr. Derby often for helping me complete my journey, and for just being the wonderful person and extremely talented surgeon that he is.Obviously I encourage everyone, but especially those who have completed their weight loss journey, to put yourself in Dr. Derby’s most capable hands. He is the “icing on the cake” to complete your already awesome accomplishment. You are worth it, invest in yourself. You will never regret it. Dr. Derby is the one to make it happen. Love him. More

Considering plastic surgery...go see Dr. Derby. I had been considering a breast reduction for some time and finally asked a friend for a recommendation...as soon as I met Dr. Derby...I knew I was going to have the procedure....he listened to me and explained clearly what he could do to achieve the best outcome for me. He has a wonderfully caring personality...and a great sense of humor. The day of my procedure...the operating suite staff were so calming...when I got home that evening Dr. Derby personally called me to make sure I was doing ok. At my post op visit Dr. Derby explained some of the techniques he had used during the operation...at my one week check up my dissolving stitches were "tidied up" by the terrific nursing staff. I felt no real pain during my 3 week recovery process...just a little "itching" as the scars healed....about 9 weeks later...my "after" photos were taken...what a difference. This procedure has been "life changing"....both physically and mentally. Thank you Dr. Derby...this is the best thing I ever did for myself....and with your amazing surgical skills...I no longer have to worry about breasts that are too big for my body!! Also, a big shout out to all the staff at SPSC...everyone is highly professional and make you feel "special". Dr. Derby is a very talented surgeon who achieves great results More

It is hard to put into words in just one small paragraph just how I feel about my experiences with Dr. Derby! I’ve now had multiple procedures, from minor things like lipoma removal to major surgery like breast lift with fat transfer and brachioplasty. I considered several plastic surgeons across the country and the moment I met Dr. Derby I knew I would be able to trust him with my life, essentially! You can tell that he 100% genuinely wants to exceed your expectations. You immediately feel like you’re the most important patient he’s ever had, or a family member that he’s really looking out for. He listens extremely carefully, you are in no way rushed, and really feel like he’s listening to exactly what your goals are. He is also very honest and in no way tries to upsell you on procedures. His entire staff has also been absolutely amazing. Especially during a very trying time of this pandemic, everything was handled impeccably. More

From the moment I stepped in the office, to the after care and follow up. I will be continuing my journey with Dr. Derby as I’ve had massive weight loss and need more skin surgeries which I’m actually now excited for. One of the things I was most impressed of about is his incision work. Like a master artist, beautifully stitched together! I am so glad that I trusted Dr. Derby and his staff with one of the most important decisions I’ve made thus far, as it truly has been life-changing. More

I waited nearly two decades to have a breast augmentation as I was so afraid of the procedure, but Dr. Derby and his staff put me right at ease. The procedure was a breeze, their attentive, thorough follow up made all of the difference, and of course, I love my results! So much added body confidence and more marketability as I am an actor/model in my free time... I will have no hesitation in the future about any procedure if I’m working with Dr. Derby again! More

im so thankful! - Dr. Derby was amazing! From the very first day we met, he was very nice and honest about how the process will be and how the outcome would turn out. He was very attentive, very knowledgable about his craft and I am truly in love with the results. I got a breast augmentation, it was something I was always hesitant about because I was afraid of any health complications but Dr. Derby was able to ease my concerns and helped me through the process.

I selected Dr. Derby to perform my breast lift with implants because he has numerous patients whose before pictures looked like me, and whose after pictures showed results that I wanted for myself. Most everyone at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center is warm and friendly. Dr. Derby immediately made me feel comfortable and heard. After only a short time it felt like I was with a friend. He provided me with so much relevant information for both my health and aesthetic. He answered any and all of my questions honestly and provided me with realistic expectations. Throughout the entire process I have felt that Dr. Derby has been in my corner (and Tiffany, an RMA at SPSC, is beyond wonderful). I love my results and would highly recommend Dr. Derby. More

Better Results Than Expected - If you're looking for plastic surgery in Sarasota, this is the doctor to see.Dr Derby is very caring, kind hearted, talented surgeon that listens to you to meet your goals. I knew immediately that I wanted him for my surgeon. My procedure was switching out 17yo saline implants (one ruptured) for Natrelle Inspira "gummy" silicone. My results are fantastic and I wish I had done this sooner. Highly recommend Dr Derby and Sarasota Plastic Surgery. Everyone is nice. Had a fantastic experience all the way around. More

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

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

Top Notch Surgeon - After a mammogram revealed that my implants of 30 plus years were starting to leak, it took me almost 3 years to have the surgery I needed. Once I met Dr. Derby there was no doubt that I wanted him to do the surgery. He explained thoroughly what options I had and answered all my questions to help me make the decision that would be right for me. My implants were surrounded by a mass of scar... More

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

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

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

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

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

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

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. I talked about having a breast augmentation for approximately 5 years and I wish I wouldn't have waited so long, I love the results. More

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Breast Augmentation - Sarasota, FL - I was referred to Sarasota Plastic Surgery by my sister and had my first consultation with Dr. Derby. He made me feel really comfortable about going forward with the breast augmentation and he is very informative. He knew exactly what I wanted and my outcome was exactly that. I hear a lot of people complain that it was to big or to small however, mine was absolutely perfect. I have had little pain and was up and about walking that night and weekend. Overall Dr. Derby is very friendly, informative and knows what he is doing. Most importantly you will be very happy with your outcome. 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
