5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Wonderful experience

Dr. Blanton was great to work with. He made me feel comfortable with my breast augmentation and helped me decide on the best type of implants and size. I would recommend him to anyone considering breast augmentation!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Excellent Surgeon!

Dr. Blanton is an amazing surgeon. I knew right away when I met him that I was in the right hands. I had met with several surgeons prior to Dr. Blanton, and they were either extremely pretentious, or were trying to push me into a decision. Dr. Blanton was very informative, but very laid back as well, and I really appreciated his approach. He assured me that he would perform the type of...

23, Wedding Present To/from Fiancee. Raleigh, NC

Dr. Blanton was absolutely wonderful. He put me and my fiancee at ease. He answered all our questions and was very thorough. I would not have trusted this to anyone else.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Couldn't Be Happier with my Results! - Raleigh-Durham, NC

What I thought was a hernia (but turned out to be separated muscles) had progressively gotten worse over the years so I decided to finally have it repaired. After agonizing for months, I decided to have a tummy tuck done at the same time because after 2 C-sections and substantial weight loss and gain over the years, my stomach was completely stretched out and really became an issue with...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

33 Y/o Marathoner and Triathlete - Raleigh, NC

He was fantastic. One of the best doctors I've ever met and extremely patient in answering all of my questions. I'd recommend him to anyone interested in breast augmentation.

Felt Very Confident and Had a Fantastic Result! - Raleigh NC

Dr. Blanton was extremely courteous, knowledgeable and professional during my consult for a much-needed breast reduction. All staff, from front desk to nursing to anesthesiologist and patient coordinator, were extremely capable and courteous. The surgery went well and I was able to take just Advil after a day or two. The scars are healing well and I am thrilled with my results! It feels so...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

A Grandmother, with Grown Children - Raleigh, NC

Amazing, a true artist. Kind, thoughtful, understanding. Took as much time as was necessary answering my questions in great detail, but in terms I could easily understand. Two of my other doctors were so impressed with the improvement in my appearance, they asked me for his card. One was a Duke doctor I saw 5 weeks after my face lift. He literally couldn't believe it, and insisted on inspecting my ears, continually shaking his head. I had to show him time stamped photos to convince him it had only been 5 weeks. If I could afford it, I would have him give me a body makeover as well.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

45 Years Old, Saddlebag Liposuction - Raleigh, NC

I am very pleased by my experience with Dr. Matthew Blanton. He was very honest with me about what kind of outcome I could realistically expect and about what he could and couldn't do. He was respectful, understanding and patient with my questions. I felt completely comfortable and at ease with him and all his staff. I would unreservedly recommend him to anyone!!!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Lift and Implants After Kids and Weight Loss. Raleigh, NC

Dr. Blanton had done my tummy tuck the year before. I had thought about doing my breast then, but kind of chickened out doing them both at the same time. I had such a great experience with Dr. Blanton that when I decided to do my breast, I went right back to him. If I ever do anything else, I would not hesitate to go to him again.

5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Lost 90 Lbs.... Needed Breast and Arm Lift - Raleigh, NC

Dr. Blanton is fabulous. Very easy to speak with. Takes time to answer questions. I never felt like I was being patient being run through a process but a person whose time was as valuable as his.
