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...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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

I have ALWAYS hated my chest. I felt like less of a woman because of my small breasts and was very insecure. This was a hard decision to make initially but it was completely worth the money and time for me. I absolutely love the outcome. I feel much more confident, feminine, and sexy for my fiancee and for myself. There was hardly any pain and a surprisingly quick recovery.

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

When I got into running and tri's I loved it. But my breasts shrank with the loss of body fat as my training progressed. I've thought about a breast augmentation for years but too afraid of doing it. I found this office and scheduled a consult. I was extremely nervous and upon arrival I was put at ease. Everything was described in detail and all of my questions answered. I am 4 months post-op...

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

Although many people didn't feel I looked my age, I literally hated my reflection each time I looked in the mirror. I never expected to look as tough I were 20 again, but I was much more pleased with the results of my face lift than I had ever imagined I might possibly be. No longer do I waste half an hour each day starring unhappily at my reflection. Neither do I double that wasted time...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

45 Years Old, Saddlebag Liposuction - Raleigh, NC

I had saddlebags since adolescence and it was only getting worse with age. Even when I lost weight, I still had those stubborn saddlebags. After years of talking about wanting to do this, I finally had the opportunity to get the liposuction done and words can't even describe how happy I am that I did it! There was some pain involved, of course, but it was manageable and totally worth it!!! ...

I had a tummy tuck done the year before, it was so nice to have a flat stomach! What I noticed was that it made my breast, that had been through a couple of pregnancies and some significant weight lost, stand out that they to could use some help. So I had a lift and augmentation. Great decision!!!
