Im cool, my last review they did not post, cause I just spoke the true. Everybody just want to be in your *** business, if your not having problem you get no encouragement. My surgery was easy breezey so no one took the time to ask how i am doing? If you have low self esteem dont get on that site, just cut your throat. Realself will not post if your talking negative

Made an account on realself so I could scout out average prices for a potential surgery in my area but also in other parts of my country or cities that I could fly to for essentially medical tourism. Made an account to search easily outside of my area but never actually clicked on any of the surgeons or sent requests or anything similar, just scrolled around a map. Next thing I know I’m getting calls and emails from every surgeon within 50miles of me saying they can put me down for an appointment on specific dates to consult the surgery. I’ve been spammed nonstop for the past few days with these calls and emails and have had to return so many emails and voicemails saying no, I didn’t put forward ANY consult request, please take me off the mailing list. Very, very predatory marketing.

I got a cool sculpting treatment from a Hampton salon. They told me the inner thigh was one of the easier places to do it and it usually took only one treatment. I paid over my hard earned $1800 and had the 'before' and 'after' photos taken, and my weight was the same...

realself is not a site to trust to look for any kind of doctor esp a plastic surgeon, they gear too much for the doctor and not for the patient. i tried writing a review on a doctor who totally botched my face and realself removed my posting and blocked me from getting on. i am only trying to warn others of a potential problems on a doctor but they promote him as the "TOP" doctor in greensburg pa. when they're across the US how can they rate him? plus all that one post one review 5 stars, cant you see they are all fake ?? please dont trust this site, there are others who will tell you the same.

I had the Biltmore Lift 6 months ago with Dr. Harley after finding him on RealSelf.com and seeing all the positive reviews. The surgery itself went fine, but as early as 2 weeks after surgery I began to notice my jowls were returning. At 5 months my face was more gaunt...

Sorry to hear about the problems you had, that must be rough for you, so thank you for sharing your story. Did you have anything else besides a facelift that caused the eye issue (fillers, fat graft)?

Most importantly, however, please share where you got the information of the high % of lip palsy so I can validate.

I am considering going to him because he gets high reviews on all sites (healthgrades, Yelp, Google) and I’ve talked to two people who had great reviews for years afterwards (I know that results and mileage varies by individual), but I’d like to go in with my eyes wide open. Thanks again for telling about your experience.

I should not have to make an account just to see the pictures I can find looking on Google. I have to make it to 100 words so I'm just going to type whatever. Pissed Consumer, you're making my review long and pointless just because you want to enforce a word requirement. My review was over after 20 words but you're right. Adding more words will totally make reviews higher quality. HAha not the case. lol {{Redacted}} (sorry I have to fill up this box and its a required section) lol {{Redacted}}

I've also been silenced, again and again on RealSelf over my Biltmore review. It's unbelievable that this is happening in this day and age.

The entire process of reviewing needs a huge overhaul.

There is a huge lack of ethics in the site. Obviously the bottom line is money from doctors, not reviewers.

Drs. Bopp Dermatology; a happy experience

Dr. Barbara Bopp is a conscientious dermatological provider. I recently benefited from her filler injections, with a very positive outcome. Her attention to detail and knowledge of facial sculpting allowed me to benefit in a most productive manner. I have had these injections before by another provider. The first Doctor did not have the same gentle touch and concern for the pain and discomfort. Dr. Bopp and her assistance gave to hand held vibrators to use on my collar bones to distract me from the pain. Dr. Bopp's assistant gently tapped on my shoulder to further distract me. The first provider, although very professional did not take these extra precautions, and I experienced some immediate and unsettling physicals results and a lot of bruising; none of this with Dr. Barbara Bopp! Dr. Felix Bopp had his assistant immediately applied ice while he was preforming the injections around my eyes. NO bruising, and he asked to see me a week later as a follow up to plan future procedures. I appreciate the thoroughness and compassion greatly. I highly recommend these two physicians.
