In my personal experience and opinion: "RealSelf.com" is "Real Dangerous" and "Real Deceptive". Upton Sinclair said, "It is hard to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it." Plastic surgeons depend upon plastic surgery...Read more
I wrote a review on a product that I had a bad experiences with and my review sparked a lot of conversation and was quite popular. There were also people harassing and bullying me due to my experience which they, in their denial, did not want to agree with. Every time...Read more
Realself - Not helpful or truly compassionate
i attempted to post a question in dermatology asking if there are any options to remove a bump that formed around my nose ring which would allow preservation of the piercing. I also noted that I had already been to a local derm to have infection ruled out. The question coordinator told me he would not post my question because the site is only for esthetic/beauty inquiries. I believe a piercing is an aesthetic choice and having an unwanted bump on a highly visible facial area is an aesthetic beauty concern. I used to think this community was there to support members through their journeys with cosmetic quests and concerns. Now, I’m more apt to believe it’s to sell plastic surgery/products and to promote paying docs. In other words, it’s just an elaborate advertisement.
Realself - They promised and not delivered
Signed up with Realself.com to increase the amount of business, at the beginning when my account was free I had tons of traffic, then they called me to be an spolight doctor , bit that has a price, since then no more calls or reviews, or patients. They tell me I have to keep paying every single month for one year, because I signed some kind of online contract. I have a lawyer involved now to stop them from withdrawing my account.
I signed up for real self a few months ago while researching a surgeon for a rhinoplasty. I ended up going through with it and am loving by results, so I made a review for my doctor with regular weekly updates. Lots of people seemed to appreciate the review,...Read more

As a physician and contributor to RealSelf.com I must admit to my ongoing frustration with the majority of comments made by many doctors. On several occasions I was ready to disassociate myself with that section of RealSelf.com even though I consider the website of...Read more

They do not allow you to edit or delete your own reviews once you post them. I called to get my review deleted and they said that I had to reach out via email but that it would take 1-2 business days to delete the review. This is a very frustrating policy! This isn't...Read more

- Deceitful ratings
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...Read more
