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 conceal reviews. a dr botched me really bad and i wrote a review. i noticed that she still had 5 star ratings and mine was not among the reviews... nowhere to be seen. I wrote to them. in order to see the review i had to sort them differently ( from lowest) ....

Yep. Agreed. I left an honest review and not only did the review not show up, not affect the rating, but I got locked out of using real self.com!

stop deceiving customers by hiding the bad reviews, and drs qualifications. why do you allow non board certified dr’s on your site and label them as core oreven top? stop lying
I posted a review contrary to one of the products mentioned on realself.com and they blocked and took down my account. I guess I insulted one of their paid brands. Which is a total scam because it is under the forum section where they say the rules are just to share...

I think we should all continue to voice our opinions about this unethical website.

If you want to see for yourself if what everyone is saying is true about realself.com make an account and post something in response to a concern or question that is medically INACCURATE. "Someone" will immediately come in and correct your "inaccurate" response.

Or you can post how SCARED you are about your surgery and within MINUTES someone will tell you "aw, honey, it will be ok, I felt the same way".

No one EVER says "I wish I didn't do it!"

IF THERE IS A *** THE PEOPLE WHO RUN THIS SITE ARE GOING TO BE IN IT. (No judgment OF COURSE...but considering that they are RUINING PEOPLE'S LIVES by only allowing positive comments that is MY opinion and on here I can voice my opinion.)
