The last things I heard/read is that the office in Labuan Bajo does extensions in 2 working days. This was someone else's experience, but very recent and confirmed. Sumbawa besar (the city) has a kelas 2 imigrasi office so you should be able to extend ( at least we did extend on Bali in a kelas 2 office la st week).
On lombok there is a kelas 1 office in Mataram that usually does all services so I imagine extending there is no issue either.
The time it takes to extend is hugely different, don't count on anything. Our office in Singaraja took 6 working days. The Yogyakarta one does it in 4 to 5 daya and in flores, as mentioned before, they apparently manage to whip out extensions in 2.
Expect three visits. One to fill in forms, one to pay and one to collect passport and new visa.
The people I met in Sumbawa did it in a day but they already had things organised with their sponsor but yes allow several days - I remember (before I opted to get the 60 day visa) that Lombok was a far easier and quicker option than Bali
