Most AMAZING Doctor EVER! My first time ever receiving plastic surgery (June 2015) and Dr. Guarino was highly recommended by several patients whom I know personally. His professionalism speaks volumes! He went above and beyond to make sure I healed nicely, provided convenient follow up visits until he felt I was ready to be discharged. His staff, AMAZING! Super friendly and pleasant. 3 months post op and I am 150% thrilled with my results! Having this surgery was by far the best thing I ever did for myself and I'm so glad I went to the best doctor, I would highly recommend him to anyone and would no go any place else for cosmetic services.

After having 3 babies and nursing them all. I lost a lot of volume in my breast and decided that I wanted to have a breast augmentation. Dr.Guarino is definitely a master in his field of surgery. He made me feel comfortable right away and answered all of my questions/concerns. He was honest with what he thought would be best for my body and has proven that with my results! They are exactly what I wanted and look natural! He has a wonderful bedside manner and truly cares about his patients. I am so thankful for having Dr. Guarino as my plastic surgeon and can not say good enough things about him. I would never go anywhere else and would highly recommend him to my family and friends!!!

Mother of Three, Lost 80 Lbs, Wanting to Look As Good As I Feel. - Allentown, PA - Dr. Guarino was excellent! From the moment of my first appointment, Dr. G made me feel very comfortable and at ease with the initial exam. Throughout the entire process, pre-op, post-op and recovery he always made himself available to me and made sure that I was well taken care of and comfortable.He was very attentive while consulting with me and was never distracted by other things that may have been happening outside of the exam room. His attention to detail and his desire for perfection goes beyond words. He is truly one of the most caring doctors that I have ever met, so much that he makes you feel like part of his family.Dr. G's office is very clean and neat. Office staff are very caring and accommodating to personal needs and concerns. - - I have always been on the thicker side and after having my third child, I realized that I could be at a serious health risk if I didn't take control of my health. So, I did what any woman would do and I gained control of my eating habits and began exercising regularly. I came to lose 80 lbs over a two year period which I am very proud of. However, after all of my efforts, I could not achieve the look I desired because of my loose skin. After a year or so of contemplation I decided a tummy tuck was the next step in my journey, so I consulted with 4 friends who have also had a tummy tuck and three out of the four were completed by Dr. Guarino. I took a leap of faith and made an appointment for a tummy tuck consultation with Dr. G. At the consultation my doctor suggested I do a circumferential tummy tuck due to the excess of skin on my lower back and rear hips. Being unsure of what to do, I took a few days to contemplate doing just the front or all the way around. The more I thought of it, the more I trusted his opinion. I made the call and was scheduled for surgery just two weeks later. In the meantime, to make sure I was comfortable, Dr. G had me come in to the office for another consultation just to address any other concerns, which I didn't really have any but it made me feel very comfortable to know he has the time for me. The day of surgery I was very nervous but excited because I have waited for the day to come for what seemed like an eternity. Dr. Guarino made me feel so comfortable and reassured me that everything would look great. I was going under anesthesia for the circumferential skin removal and muscle repair. I asked for lipo but Dr. G reassured me that there wasn't any fat to suck out. Waking up from anesthesia is never easy for me (as I found out in three prior unrelated surgeries) but the staff at the hospital gave me enough meds to help reduce my nausea. I spent one night in the hospital, which I was very glad for because moving around was more challenging than I had expected. Funny thing, while I was there overnight I had an unexpected visitor, my OBGN who delivered all three of my babies! He was at the hospital doing a delivery and seen my name on the patient list (I was staying on the OB floor because they had more beds available) and he stopped in to say hello. To my surprise, he mentioned that all of his patients who go for MR or TT postpartum he refers to Dr. G. So I knew I had made the right choice!Recovery was very challenging the first few days. It was difficult to get up, or down so I spent a lot of time just sleeping. Thank goodness for pain meds to keep me comfortable. I didn't have much of an appetite for the first week or so. I drank a protein shake each day and snacked on crackers and toast just to get some nutrients. My drainage tubes were removed one week after surgery and my external stitches came out after 10 days. Each day was better than one before and healing was a very gradual process. Eventually, my old clothing became too big, including my CG, so I had to purchase a smaller garment and smaller pants. Pre-op measurements:Height: 5' 10"Weight: 180Chest: 37"Waist: 30"Hips: 39"Thigh: 24"Post-op measurements:Height: 5' 10"Weight: 165Chest: 34"Waist: 27"Hips: 35"Thigh: 22"*I understand weight loss is not typical with this procedure so make sure you're at your ideal weight before beginning your procedure.After 6 weeks I had my post-op check up and things looked great so I was released back to normal activities with the exception of ab work which I can begin in just a week. All in, it was definitely worth it!
