Full, shapely breasts have always exemplified femininity and sensuality, and many women find that larger breasts enhance their look and their self-image. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dax Guenther uses leading-edge techniques that create beautiful, natural-looking results through breast augmentation at his Boston, Hingham, and Nantucket, MA plastic surgery practice.

Dr. Dax knows the importance of personalizing procedures to match each patient’s body type and cosmetic goals. His advanced training and dedication to using the latest procedural techniques are two components of his approach for creating natural-looking results that:
Enhance the size and shape of small breasts
Restore volume that has diminished with age, pregnancy, or weight loss
Create symmetry when breasts are differently sized
Improve overall body proportions
Each patient has unique needs and therefore requires a custom solution for meeting those needs. A woman seeking a revision procedure (to enhance or repair results from breast augmentation elsewhere), may have very different goals than a woman who wants to improve the look of her breasts after having children.
Meet 'Dr. Dax'
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
With impeccable credentials and a personable bedside manner, Dr. Dax gives his patients confidence and peace of mind from their initial consultations through follow-up appointments. He established his boutique private practice in 2012 and is among the best plastic surgeons in the Boston area.
What Can I Expect at My Breast Augmentation Consultation?
During your private consultation, Dr. Dax will work with you to determine which surgical methods will most effectively achieve your goals. He will guide you in decisions such as implant type, incision pattern, and implant placement for classic results that enhance your beauty. Dr. Dax offers a range of surgical methods, which provide you with options for tailoring your results no matter what your goals. He will also discuss popular complementary procedures, including breast lift and mommy makeover surgeries.
Which Breast Augmentation Incision Is Best?
The best incision pattern for you depends on your personal preference and other considerations. By offering endoscopic techniques, Dr. Dax is able to very precisely place the implant using only a small incision under the armpit (transaxillary) for minimal visible scarring. He also offers inframammary (under the natural breast crease) and periareolar (around the areola) incision patterns. Each incision option has its benefits and drawbacks, so Dr. Dax will work with you to determine the best method for your needs.
‘Everything went perfectly’
“I researched doctors for a while before I picked Dr. Guenther. I picked him because of several factors. He has a perfect record with the medical board. He had a good length of experience. He also had before/ after photos I liked and solid reviews. I made a good choice. Everything went smoothly and as I wanted it to. I will not end up with any visible scars.”

What’s the Best Placement for Breast Implants?
Implants can be placed either behind the existing breast tissue and in front of the chest muscle (subglandular placement) or behind the muscle (submuscular placement). Dr. Dax discusses these options with patients during their consultations and explains the benefits and limitations of each. The amount of existing breast tissue a patient has and her lifestyle are important factors to consider when choosing the best implant placement for a specific patient.

The two most popular options for breast implants in Boston are:
Silicone gel implants, including gummy bear implants, are pre-filled and have a natural feel and appearance that many patients believe is most like their own breast tissue. This option is available to women who are at least 22 years old.
Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution after being placed in the breast pocket. Dr. Dax commonly recommends this option for younger patients seeking primary augmentation.
How Do I Choose the Right Breast Implant Size?
It’s important to know that breast implants are measured by volume (cc), not cup size. An implant that looks good on a friend, may not be the right size for you. Dr. Dax will work with you to determine the best breast implant size for your frame, lifestyle, and cosmetic goals.
How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost in Boston?
The cost of breast augmentation depends on several factors. You have quite a few options when choosing a breast augmentation surgeon in Boston, and it’s important not to base your decision on who offers the least expensive surgery. The price of your procedure will include the type of breast implants you choose, the surgeon’s fee, the operating room fee, and other related costs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I combine breast augmentation with other cosmetic procedures?
Yes, breast augmentation surgery is often performed at the same time as other body contouring procedures. Women who have had children, for example, may choose to get a tummy tuck and liposuction as part of a mommy makeover. In some cases, a patient who wants to add volume to her breasts and create a perkier appearance combines breast implants with a breast lift.
How long do breast implants last?
The life span of breast implants can vary quite a bit. Even though implants aren’t designed to last forever, some women keep the same implants for 15 to 20 years. If you don’t experience complications, there is no reason to replace implants as long as you’re happy with your appearance.
Can I breastfeed with breast implants?
Many women with breast implants breastfeed their children. You should tell your surgeon if you’re planning to get pregnant after getting breast augmentation because it will influence the incision location.
