Dr. Robert Guida, MD
Dr. Robert Guida has repeatedly been listed in the Castle Connolly Guide of Best Doctors recognizing him as one of “the best doctors in New York”, New York Magazine’s feature on top “Beauty Doctors” in New York City, and in New York Magazine’s Best Doctor Issue. He has been practicing facial plastic and reconstructive in New York since 1990. What distinguishes Dr. Robert Guida is his extensive training in both cosmetic plastic surgery as well as functional nose surgery. He is board certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery. Dr. Guida is currently a Clinical Associate Professor at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. He was on the full time faculty at Cornell University Medical at New York Presbyterian Hospital from 1990 until 1999 and the Director of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery there until 1999.

He is board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. Dr. Guida is renowned for his command of innovative plastic surgery techniques and the natural looking results he achieves for patients. Dr. Guida believes that any cosmetic surgery procedure should reflect the patient’s individuality. Dr. Guida sees himself as both a physician and a craftsman, which means that his patients have the benefit of not just his technical expertise, but also his artistic sense. Dr. Guida feels that aesthetic surgeons must develop a sixth sense that helps them understand each patient’s goals and desires. As quoted by Dr. Guida, “I spend a great deal of time listening to my patients’ concerns and wishes. In addition, computerized digital imaging allows me to communicate better with my patients, giving us the opportunity to study their unique facial anatomy more objectively. It then becomes much easier for us to come up with an agreed upon approach”. Dr. Guida is personally involved in all aspects of his patients’ operative care. This includes placement and removal of every suture as well as all other post-operative care responsibilities. Dr. Guida believes that delivering the highest quality patient care requires his personal involvement and monitoring of the entire healing process. He feels this highly attentive involvement facilitates his patients’ recovery, as he is intimately involved and aware the healing process at every level at all times.

    Doctor Guida is incredible he changed my life. I had wanted rhinoplasty for sometime, but it was still scary to change something so significant in your face. I had a consultation and surgery scheduled with another doctor and felt uneasy about it. I knew doctor Guida was the right doctor the moment I met him. He is personal and warm and professional and incredibly talented. I can't thank him enough for giving me the most perfect nose and taking the time with me.
    in East Elmhurst, NY |
    I had rhinoplasty/septoplasty and sinus surgery with Dr. Guida a few years ago. He was fantastic and I am very happy with my results. I havent had to use my asthma inhaler since he did the sinus surgery. I am also very happy with the appearance as well. The rhinoplasty looks very natural and I still look like me, just better. The post op recovery was pretty painless and I only had to take painkillers day of surgery.
