Dr. Derby is a wonderful doctor! I am truly thrilled that I chose him for my surgery. He spent a lot of time with me at my first visit to make sure I understood the procedure, and listened intently to my wishes. I couldn’t be happier with my results and I’m only 5 weeks post-op. Dr. Derby and his entire staff are so helpful, very kind, respectful and courteous! I couldn’t have had a better team to care for me, and they are so patient whenever I call with a question. Make an appointment with Dr. Derby for your surgery, and, I promise you, you won’t be disappointed!!

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.

Dr. Derby has truly changed my life for the better. Not only is he kind, compassionate, and an absolute joy to be around, but he is INCREDIBLY talented at what he does. I am beyond thrilled with my results and the confidence it has given me! Dr. Derby took the time to explain the procedure in detail, answer any questions I had, and provided me with realistic expectations. I can't thank him and all of the incredible staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center enough!

Dr. Derby is an artist! I’m 8 weeks post-op from a tummy tuck and arm skin reduction. I’ve dropped 2 pant sizes in 6 weeks and with more recovery ahead, I expect even more results. Dr. Derby is so supportive, honest, and funny. He made this big procedure a lot easier. Thank you for revealing all my hard work of nutrition and training the last 18 months!

My experience with Dr. Derby and his entire staff far surpassed my expectations! I am absolutely thrilled with the results of my mini face and neck lift. I was nervous and even postponed my surgery for six months because, let's face it, it's your face! Now (eight weeks post-op) I only wish I had done it sooner. Dr. Derby took his time and did a beautiful job. I had very little down time and the healing process went very well. Now I look like "me" but a "better me". I highly recommend this talented surgeon!

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.

Dr. Brian Derby has been my Dr. on several occasions as I have very thin skin which tends to tear easily and he has always been there to repair the damage. His caring manner and professional ease have always made my problems seem minimal ... and my healing seems hastened by his expertease. His office staff reflect his warm manner and professionalism and I always look forward to my visits there due to his warmth and obvious caring demeanor. I never hesitate to recommend him, as he has all the attributes of a professional who is there for his patients, available for their questions and deeply concerned for their problems. Claire Kanter, patient.

My oncologist saved my life and Dr Derby GAVE ME MY LIFE BACK. In the summer of 2017 I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. I went through all of the recommended treatments as I wanted my best shot at living-for a long time. I have a brilliant oncologist who I owe my life to. Meantime, I am the poster child for “all the bad stories you heard about chemo and especially the radiation effects-I got it!” That was a long and winding road. I felt very hopeless for the 2 years post radiation as I had Severe swelling and pain in my right breast and rib cage that most people said I would have to live with forever. Enter Dr Derby. He gave me hope when I felt hopeless. I have never looked or felt better than I do now and I’m 2 months post op and feel beyond happy again! Not only is he the most skilled and amazing surgeon I’ve ever known but he is a damn nice guy who truly cares about his patients. He is the BEST and I am totally grateful To him. He changed my life.

Dr Derby was excellent. He was caring and very professional. I did appreciate how he didn't try to persuade me to do additional surgeries unless I felt comfortable. I did local anesthetic for my eye surgery and Dr Derby made the whole experience awesome and non stressful! So recommending him to all my friends and family.

My experience with Dr Derby exceeded my expectations. From my very first consult, Dr Derby made me feel very comfortable. I never felt rushed; he took time to answer all of my questions thoughtfully. He made sure I knew what to expect and gave me realistic expectations. I had a facelift done and I feel that I look 10 years younger and feel more confident about my appearance. I am sure there are other great plastic surgeons, but when you find a skilled surgeon who is also a truly caring person, then that is the perfect combination. Dr Derby and his staff are the best! I Am happy to recommend him.

I am so glad to have my eye bags removed...If I could choose I should have done it earlier. I am very satisfied with my physical results and the whole experience. It's a refresh to me. Now I look much younger and feel good every day. I love how I look like and I am much more confident. Dr. Derby is a very professional and experienced doctor. I am very lucky to have him helped me. He is very caring and patient, answered tons of my questions. He has an efficient and productive team to work with. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who needs an eyelids treatment.

The absolute best. A true professional and master of his practice. I found Dr. Derby to be attentive and addressed all my concerns and answered my questions at a level I could easily understand- the results were nothing short of spectacular! I would not hesitate to return to him in the future and have already told my friends to go and see him for a consultation for their needs. A very personable physician.

3 Reasons Why Dr. Derby's Work is Exceptional! Dr. Derby is a game changer! He is a true professional and compassionate, relatable, and treats you like family, no wonder he is a sought after cosmetic, plastic & reconstructive surgery specialist! My experience with his work and his staff is something I love to share with friends and family! I trusted him with lipo in my flanks, bra fat, a tummy tuck, and breast implants. He truly made a positive impact  on me and my body, so much, my husband said, "I need to come in and shake his hand!"

My entire experience with Dr. Derby and the staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center was exceptional! Prior to my consultation I felt uncomfortable about wanting a breast augmentation, but Dr. Derby put all my worries at ease. He is the perfect balance of knowledgeable, friendly, caring, funny, courteous, and professional. Like so many of his patients, I could not be happier with the results of my procedure. It is without hesitation that I recommend Dr. Derby to anyone seeking high quality surgical care.

I would recommend Dr. Brian Derby highly. He performed reconstructive surgery on my cheek for malignant melanoma. He and his skilled nurses set me at ease, as I had never been sedated. He fully explained what was to be done with this procedure. Follow up care was excellent, and I have hardly any scar! Precision job! Four years later, Dr. Derby, removed a melanoma from my scalp. Not satisfied with the pathology report, he removed more margins of skin which was successful! I place full trust in him, as a highly skilled surgeon with an excellent “bedside” manner which is so important!

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.

I met Dr. Derby when I was going through a very emotional time having learned I had breast cancer. After my mastectomy, Dr. Derby's soothing manner leading up to reconstruction surgery helped me get through my procedures. I especially liked that he explained everything he was going to do and always made time for my questions as well as my husband's. I love his personality as well as his professional skills. I look and feel so much better now that my surgeries are over. I was very lucky to have found Dr. Derby and highly recommend him!
