Now when it comes to review sites I have always been aware that a fair amount of manipulation goes into some of the reviews, however it never really bothered me to much, however when your considering something as serious as cosmetic surgery transparency and honest...

Realself - Dr. ratings are not done properly!

I have been looking on Realself website to try and find a good, qualified plastic surgeon. I believed the ratings ("Top Doctor", "Core"), until I came across a doctor Gregory Roche from Michigan. He was rated as a Top Doctor. This is ridiculous, he is not even board certified! I used him for a totally botched breast implant job. He did not talk to me after surgery. He does not even show his face for any of my checkups, I was attended to by an assistant. I kept asking to talk to him but I never could. I was told by a real board certified doctor that I had a consult with to correct this surgery that I was correct. Dr. Roche is not board certified nor is he a good surgeon! Where can a person go to get real truthful information when deciding on plastic surgery?????

Quit lying to people looking for honest answers when considering surgery.
I knew the Doctor never performed the procedures that Realself claimed they did. So, I no longer believe anything on Realself.com. In fact I will never go on it again. When people are looking for legitamate sites to research, we should be able to believe in the...

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.

If you've ever used Realself, you may have had comments removed or your account banned. You may also have heard that they're on the side of doctors, and although they certainly promote and protect (paying) doctors at the expense of their user base, the reality is that...

I'd like to start by saying Realself did not influence my decision making, because I do not use reviews online for places where astroturfing occurs to make decisions about my body. However, I know there are many people on there that are eager or borderline desperate...

Real self is a good site to warn peopel about Bad plastic surgeons! And they show photos of the bad cosmetic work carried out by NHS and private surgeons in the Uk. It warns others about them.

They don't warn people about bad doctors because most of the time when you enter a less than perfect review it gets taken down.

What should really happen is that we should stop blindly following other girls that say they're having great surgical results when they're less than 1 year post-op.

The initial euphoria that comes with plastic surgery is normally not the lasting result.

When the swelling goes down, many are disappointed. Show a little restraint & know that that results from about 10 days to 2 months might look fabulous, when in reality they are NOT!

I tried to delete mine but I've been told my photos are still up. RS does what they want & doctors get preferential treatment. If they don't like what you say, they have you removed.

I deleted mine . Sorry , you had a bad experience on here .

I decided to not be on the site anymore due to all the pop ups I was receiving so much from real self . I just didn't have time to check it everyday when I would notice I had 4 to 8 comments etc .
