5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Best Decision of my Life - New York, NY

My motivation for this I think is just like everybody else. I have been very insecure about my nose all my life. People have been telling me beautiful eyes, hair but I knew something was off. The past couple of years I swear my noses had gotten bigger. It started driving me crazy w all the social networks. After doing a lot of research I have met a lot of wonderful dr. I couldn't have made...

1 year post operation

I have scheduled the surgery with Dr. Robert Guida on may 24th. Today I had the last consultation prior to the surgery. The doctor was very reassuring that the surgery will go well and he will do his best to make my nose look better than now. I've read so many reviews about him that I am truly confident that he will do a great job. As most of us on this community, I was bullied in middle...

Most Beautiful Nose on the Planet -

I first started looking for a surgeon for a rhinoplasty just after my 24th birthday. I had always struggled with having a big nose (I was teased incessantly as a child) and new it was time to make a change.  Hi Everyone! I have been receiving a lot of messages and requests over the past few months to update my profile with pictures, and at first I was a little hesitant, but I finally...

27 Years Old Male, Severely Deviated Septum, Along with a Clearly Visible Dorsal Deviation. New York, NY

Dr. Guida was an outstanding surgeon that applied decades of knowledge and expertise into performing the ideal septo-rhinoplasty procedure. My nose was severely deviated, with an obviously crooked slant that could be spotted from a lengthy distance. When posing for pictures, I always looked to the right hand side, hoping to get an angle that would give the nose a sem-straight look for photo's....

Flawless Work! - New York, NY

Flawless work by Dr. Guida. Where to begin!? I got septoplasty/rhinoplasty one month ago by Dr. Guida and words cannot begin to describe how happy and grateful I am to have found him. He exceeded my expectations, even the healing process was a breeze. I've met with other Doctors in the tri-state area prior to meeting Dr. Guida and his staff, and no one else compares to their true...

26 Year Old - Finally Going Through with Rhinoplasty - New York, NY

Ever since I was 16 years old I wanted to have rhinoplasty. My parents always refused because I was too young, they wanted me to wait it out and see how I felt in a few years. At the time I thought they were being completely unfair. However, I believe that everything happens for a reason and if I did not wait I would have never found Dr. Guida. After months of researching surgeons online...

Rhinoplasty - New York, NY

I had a rhinoplasty with Dr Guida two summers ago at the age of 18, and I can't believe it has taken me this long to write a review. I had consultations with a few other doctors before I chose dr guida but when I met him I knew I did not have to go anywhere else. I was really careful and cautious about my choice because im super picky and I knew exactly what I wanted my nose to look like. I...

22 Years Old, College Student. - New York, NY

After watching countless girls in my sorority have an extremely positive experience with Dr. Guida, I finally decided to book my consultation in March of 2013. I scheduled my surgery for June of that year. I was extremely nervous as I had never had surgery before and I have an extreme phobia of blood, needles, and doctors in general. But I really wanted to fix the small bump on the bridge of...

Best Rhinoplasty Ever - New York, NY

I was about to turn 50, had always wanted the bump out of my nose, and had my eyelids done at the same time. Absolutely PERFECT. My eyes still look great 13+ years later. It was done in the office and I recovered at home. My pre op pred was excellent so I healed very fast. He has also, since then, done Botox twice and filler once, plus stitched my head after a fall.
