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...

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...

I was his biggest fan, so I was as surprised as anyone. He is a fraud. He pretends to be concerned & compassionate, but gossips about his patients behind their backs & is not the surgeon he claims to be. He wears a mask for is U.S patients, he knows what we want &...

Let him operate on you, then you'll change your tune. Almost 4 years later, I have a giant knotted suture coming through the eyelid on my left eye! He's using sub-par sutures ...

I submitted concrete evidence that he's in violation of RS rules & was assured he'd be removed, he's still on! He was able to remove my profile within hours with no inquiry made to me as to the validity of his claim, but he's still on. RS LIES!

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,...

I submitted a review about this doctor and because I described how he botched my nose it never posted. I am, a real verifiable patient of his and there was no explanation from the real self team as to why my review wasn't allowed. If this is a sampliing of how Real...

Realself - Plastic pain

What a joke/scam RealSelf is. The doctor who destroyed my face has 5 star reviews on RealSelf. They removed my reviews and blocked me. Another plastic surgeon told me that this surgeon from Orange Ct is a dangerous sociopath whose license should be removed. RealSelf harbors criminals and violates client rights. Plan to sue Tom Seely CEO for big bucks anyone want to join in?

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.
