“Beauty is a greater recommendation than any
letter of introduction.”

– Aristotle

how many doors the right letter of recommendation can open, perhaps this
Aristotelian opinion should be taken seriously by anyone committed to
creating a memorable impression.

“There is
never a better time to look and feel your best than right now,” said Dr. W.
Marshall Guy, The Woodlands premier facial plastic surgeon, “and research has
proven that appearance matters in society.”

Dr. Guy is a
firm believer that inner beauty and physical beauty are complementary and
that improving one will improve the other.  He has
made it his life’s mission to improve the signs of aging, so that you can
look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside. He is in his ninth
year of practice in The Woodlands,  and his
10th year as a facial plastic surgeon.

Dr. Guy is a
native of Spring, Texas, and he graduated first in his class from St. Thomas
High School in downtown Houston. He also graduated first in his class from
the University of Texas at Austin where he majored in biology with a minor in
Spanish, and first in his class at his medical school, Baylor College of

After those
impressive finishes, he attended one of the most sought-after residency
programs in the country at Baylor College of Medicine in Otolaryngology-Head
and Neck Surgery where he learned the intricacies of the structures of the
neck, face, and nose. He completed his fellowship in facial plastic and
reconstructive surgery in Gulf Shores, Alabama, under the mentorship of two
former presidents of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery before
returning to The Woodlands in 2015 to open

his practice.

Dr. Guy is
the only double board certified, fellowship trained, facial plastic surgeon
practicing 100% facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in The Woodlands
with his office conveniently located at 128 Vision
Park Blvd, Suite 150, Shenandoah, TX.

“I’ve always
been great with my hands,” said Dr. Guy, “so surgery was a natural fit for
me. Plus, I’ve always loved the delicateness of facial plastic surgery. I’m a
perfectionist, so the fact I work with millimeters was right in my wheelhouse
given the high degree of precision required to achieve extraordinary results.
It’s also the only field that lets me spend the amount of time I want to
spend with patients.  I’m a
talker and I love to get to know my patients and for them to get to know me
before we proceed with surgery.”

Most of Dr.
Guy’s patients are women who desire a more youthful but natural and not
“done” look which is Dr. Guy’s expertise.  His top
three most performed surgeries are facelifts (including neck lifts, cheek
lifts, mini lifts, etc.), blepharoplasty (eyelid lifts) and rhinoplasty

“My most
common procedure currently,” said Dr. Guy, “is a deep plane facelift. It
provides a very robust lift and a very natural appearance. Patients also love
it because it can be performed in the office under local anesthesia for those
who don’t want to have general anesthesia.”

The deep
plane facelift avoids the stigmata of the tight, overdone look of many modern
facelifts that rely on tension for their result. The main tenet of the deep
plane lift is that it lifts under the collagen layer in the cheek and the
muscular layer in the neck as one unit, creating a very natural result. It
also avoids excess tension because it releases the tethering points of the
face and neck in the deep plane to allow the tissues to redrape

So how do
you know when you are ready for facial plastic surgery? Dr. Guy asserts that
you know it’s time for a consultation when you see something that bothers
For that appointment, ample time is blocked in order to fully
address questions, concerns, and options.

“Many times,
concerns can be addressed without surgery,” said Dr. Guy. “The great thing is
that my practice offers many different options for rejuvenation ranging from
injectables at our med spa to surgical procedures. 
We provided all of the available options and help the patient
choose the right treatment at this stage of aging customized for her.  This way
the patient knows she is choosing what is right for

Dr. Guy’s
priority is to establish relationships based on trust. If a patient comes in
with a concern that is not a surgical condition, he steers them away from
that option toward a more minor treatment that perhaps has no downtime.

“I want my
patients to know they can trust my opinion,” he said, “ and that we aren’t
just trying to sell them on surgery. It’s about maintaining your natural
This may involve small surgeries along the way to avoid any
dramatic changes, almost like a youthful maintenance program.  For others
they elect to wait until later and can have a more dramatic but still natural
result, looking great for their age.”

Dr. Guy’s
patients benefit greatly from his excellent bedside manner.  He helps
put patients at ease and feel comfortable with the entire surgical process
from initial consultation to final result.  For those
who undergo cosmetic surgery, Dr. Guy personally calls them each night for
the first week. 
This ensures all questions continue to be answered in the
healing period making for an easier recovery. 

“I see them
through the entire process,” he said, “to make sure they’re healing well. We
do everything in our power to make it a very low stress, yet distinguished
experience for every patient.”

Dr. Guy is a
specialist in all areas of rejuvenation for the face and neck. As a double
board-certified and fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Guy knows
that everyone ages differently and that there is no one size fits all when it
comes to restoring a youthful appearance. From surgical options like a
facelift to non-surgical options like Botox® and dermal
fillers, there’s never a better time to look your
