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.

Dr. Derby is an excellent surgeon. He performed a skin graft on a difficult area, and the results are amazing. He is a thoughtful, caring person and a talented doctor whose work is of high quality.

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!

Dr. Derby did a fabulous job fixing my nose after a Mohs procedure. I had a hole the size of a dime and it looked like a chunk was missing from the side view. I had a Dorsi Flap done by Dr. Derby and am very happy with the results. Dr. Derby always gives me as much time as I need on office visits and I never feel like he's hurrying to someone else.

Dr Derby listens well-very empathetic but does try to be realistic regarding expected outcomes! I found him to be caring and a great communicator-He made my procedure -Breast Reduction-as comfortable as possible for me by attention to detail throughout the entire experience. I work in the medical market and am impressed not only by his knowledge but by the warmth and caring by Dr Derby and his staff. Amazing experience! The results of my surgery exceeded my expectations.

I found Dr. Derby to be very professional and relaxed in his approach to my condition as well as my natural concern of what was to take place during my operation. Everyone in the operating area as well as the front of house where very attentive to me and my concerns. Thank you all for your service...you all do it well.

Nothing more to say. I severed my relationship with the group following my experience. I had, up until then, been going there for 14 years when I experienced my very unfortunate outcome.

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

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

10 stars ?? 3 days post-op from a tummy tuck. Dr. Derby and his staff are more then AMAZING, his bed side manners are beyond of what you expect. He called me yesterday to check up on me and made me laugh, he has a great sense of humor and is so nice and he made me feel like I was his only patient, making feel important and answering all of my weird questions prior to the surgery and after the surgery. If you’re in search for great surgeon that goes above and beyond, look no further.

Dr. Derby is amazing! His work is beautifully done. I had a gastroc flap with a skin graph done and it turned out great! Derby's personality was always fun and infectious; such a great guy. I would recommend him to anyone! My case was not a simple one for I had extremely bad soft tissue damage but, He is thorough and meticulous and my experience with him could not have gone better!

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