this company is only for the doctors and i am sure the doctors pay to be put on and maybe even to pay extra to be placed on the "top" status. FAKE they are as much to blame as the butchering doctors that think they are untouchble. if you try and post something the...

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...

I don't understand. I know a woman who left a negative review about terrible complications she had after a liplift with Randal Haworth, MD. She posted her before and after photos and they were awful. Within 2 days the review was removed. Why would realself do this?

I don't really have a problem with the sight other than, When you make a post, you are stuck with it forever, too bad if you type something you don't mean or if you made a mistake. Also I tried to get my profile removed twice, and they okay'ed me, and never removed it!...

Doctor Arguello is a psychopat, he likes to damage people, and he is also protected in Costa Rica by politicians and etc, if you manage to read this message, by any means, do not operate with this doctor, he will only try to hurt you and steal your money

Preferred solution
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!

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 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 .

Real Self is not real honest

I replied to a review of a procedure about a month ago on real self and noticed that both my review and the original review could not be found the next day. Both were slightly negative but not terrible. As the original review stated the procedure was painful and there were only positive reviews to be found. Do not trust this site. I will be spreading the word to everyone I know. In fact I think that network news should do a story on this site. The word will eventually get out as people catch on though.

I agree, RS is very one sided. They support the doctors who buy their marketing programs & spend money with them.

I wasn't even aware that the doctor's could buy marketing plans, the whole site seems so against any type of marketing, but that's how it works. They are very dishonest.

Wrongful removal of account

To Kristy at Real Self , I'm not sure to what you are stating. As to a second account on Real Self. I just opened an account with Real Self not too long ago. How could one accused one of opening an account? Is it because I have wish picture and explaining the world about my journey. I will reach out to social media in regards to Real Self Accusation. Many on here will know how Real Self really operates. And , there was nothing on my account that present harm,misleading,false statement rather then me sharing my experience and providing helpful tips to like minded women. This is wrong as I have not broke any polices rules of RealSelf.. This will be voice out to 100,000 of women who log daily on RealSelf.

After reading positive reviews on RS I had decided that I would travel to CR for plastic surgery. What happened to you that you are accusing RS to not being honest?

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.)
