It's great but missing one thing 3/5
It's great and very helpful and informative. But as some one who is reviewing, commenting, and asking and answering questions, it's needs to specify what my new notifications is. For example, All it'll tell me is I have 3 new notifications but won't tell me whether it was a comment, reply, inbox message, or like on my review. I literally have to go dinging through everything I've commented on and such and will end up not replying to someone's question at all and I look rude. NOT COOL! Please fix immediately!
Removing MD from feed 4/5
I can’t remove md from my feed. Contacted help and their instructions still don’t remove md.

Extremely helpful!!!!! 5/5
By London harris
I love this so much because I probably would have been botched from the floor up okay.!
Great concept, but glitchy and unorganized 2/5
This is an awesome concept, that’s in need of a few tweaks and bug fixes. Personal inboxes (for comments, questions etc) are horribly threaded. There’s no chronological order. In the “questions” section, it’s next to impossible to expand
doctor’s answers that take up more than just a few lines of text...you have to beat the “read more” link to death, and it *might* work. The layout for writing reviews and experiences is poorly formatted. You’re not quite sure what you’re writing, a review on the doctor or an experience, because the fields aren’t labeled properly—neither are the instructions. Anywho, fix that and it’s great.
Latest update won’t allow “Ask A Doctor” ERROR 3/5
Can’t ask a question anymore as system says shorten question text even if you remove all characters. Glitch, please fix.
Too distracting and confusing 3/5
Slow. Don't like when I'm reading about a dr how you advertise local docs on the same page it's distracting and annoying and confusing and if I wanted a local dr I would look them up
the app and website is down 1/5
I just downloaded the app and it shows their development enviroments as well as their website
Incredibly helpful!! 5/5
I was so happy to find real self. I had so many questions about my procedures that I was going to have done. Every thing that popped in my head I just want to real self looked it up and found answers! It’s also great finding a sisterhood on the flat side!!
Such a fun and informative app! 5/5
This is a great place to see real reviews about procedures you might be interested in. You can also see surgeon reviews. It’s a friendly community where people are supportive with their comments. I love Real Self!!
Real self somewhat real help 3/5
I just feel spam and ads also fake pages should be blocked this website is not here to promote or gain clients, this is people’s bodies and health. But overall good app has help me make most of my decisions so got to be careful of who is real and who is fake
I love this site 5/5
With the help of the RealSelf app I was able to find just the right doctor to do my ethnic rhinoplasty.
My wanting to have my nose done was more than a twenty year wait but I'm so pleased with this site and other patients posting their journey with reviews and pictures. It made choosing a doctor alot easier.
Great app with a great support team! 5/5
Whole New World 5/5
If you're looking into body enhancement, this app will open up a trove of information, pictures, personal experiences, recommendations, warnings, and advice concerning issues you never dreamed of. This app should be in every beginning research arsenal.
Excellent app 5/5
I must say this app is so great and its truly helpful seeing these reviews and comments from the patients themselves. Also I enjoy reading the questions and answers from the doctors themselves. Also the pictures are exactly what I needed.
Updates are excellent 5/5
By Sniffy Schneider
Recently I wrote Tom Seery, the CEO of Real Self, to alert him to a suggestion that I thought would make the Real Self application even more effective for RS app users to find the right doctor. I explained that when I scroll through the reviews of a doctor, there was no way for me to know which reviews contained photos and which did not. For me, reviews with photos are essential as one never knows if reviews without photos are authentic patients. Tom got back to me right away and got me in touch with his product manager, who I then had several email correspondences with regarding the issue.
Well, they took me seriously and updated the app so that when an RS user is scrolling through review banners, they will see a photo thumbnail indicating that there are photos contained within that review. This made a HUGE difference, and because of this, I was able to find (in a matter of days) the doctor I am currently most interested in for my procedure.
Thanks, Real Self! Great work. You are revolutionizing the plastic surgery industry!
Almost 5 stars 4/5
Would be 5 if there was landscape mode and if the notifications caught all updates. Love the content though.
Good app could be better 4/5
By Ihitbills like bill Cosby
Need to have a section for searching the cc of implants or one for implants over 1000cc
Almost perfect 4/5
This app is almost perfect. But the only thing that would make it more perfect is if I can filter and sort my searches,(date,time, etc). If that can be added I'll change it to 5 stars!
By Shea Solomon
I absolutely love this app! I have found some great information on here.
Can't figure out how to post anything on this app it's frustrating 3/5
Can't post anything on this app
I like this app a lot. It has helped me get through post surgery by posting and reading people's post. I wish you could edit and delete things you have posted without having to email them to fix it.
Great App 5/5
Great real reviews on doctors from real people. This app is great if you are looking for patient experience on procedures or research on doctors this is the app.
Love Realself 5/5
By Granny Ran
The only place I go to when I need research on a doctor or procedure. It's The holy grail for anything related to plastic surgery. I don't know what I would do without this as my reference to app!! The majority of the comments are 100% honest, and a tremendous help to me.
Used to be better 4/5
I used to be able to see newest to oldest but now I don't see that option. O/w still a useful app with good info about procedures, doctors, and great pictures. Thanks RealSelf!
love it but.. 5/5
every time i try to upload a review the app keeps crashing, making me start all over it's very annoying.
Love love love 5/5
I love this app so much!!! On it every day!! And I'm ready to be my real self!!
It's great 4/5
I can find any procedure that I'm curious about. So useful
Best app ever 5/5
By best medical app
I found my surgeon here. Extremely helpful app
Stop telling me to download your app every time I click something on your website.
Very good! 4/5
I love this site bc it is very helpful, but I give the app only 4 stars. It's difficult to upload pictures and takes a while when doing this. When I uploaded pictures, they displayed sideways which was weird so I had to edit to make them sideways in order for them to upload properly.
Great Site 5/5
By Carisma RudeGyal
I been a member since 2016 and I love this site it's full of information and brilliant doctors and wonderful people who want or has had all different types of surgeries! I did my research and I found my doctor which will be Dra Tania Medina in the Dominican Republic in September of 2017!
Such a helpful community. 5/5
You can really find information on any types of procedures from real people here
Solid app 5/5

This Application has help me a great deal with my journey.
So helpful! 5/5
Couldn't have done my BA without it!
Helpful and functional 5/5
I found my doctor on real self. The app has great info from local doctors as well as people who have had the same procedure.
By Trina Taylor
If it wasn't for RealSelf, I wouldn't be having my surgery. It would all be a dream. I love the fact I can review RealPeople's opinions about doctors, recovery, recovery houses, etc. I'm also happy they have an app for the iPhone. Bring it on for the Android!! Great job RS!
Real reviews from real people. ❤️ 5/5
Best app for this purpose by far
Honest reviews on many taboo topics 4/5
I enjoy using RealSelf to get a better idea of the various cosmetic procedures out there. A lot of times, these topics are considered taboo and hard to discuss with others. Having access to a network of professionals and those who have gone through these experiences is very helpful to have. Also helps to equip myself before making the leap to a clinic.
I do hope they continue to improve the app search function, specifically filtering content.
Helpful and honest reviews 5/5
I find that these are helpful and honest reviews supplied by those who have actually had these procedures. My only strife is when Doctors discourage any non-evasive procedures because of the more extreme ones that only they can provide. Every now and then you'll see a doctor saying a 20% at home peel is ok. Not everyone can afford a serious in office procedure and some of the at home solutions are very helpful. As long as these are done with extreme care at a very low dose, I don't see the problem other than medical liability. My advice to doctors who cannot comment, please don't.
Love it! 5/5
By Cool beans 86
Talk about support! I love RealSelf because you can always be your REAL SELF. It's really amazing great informative app!
Very informational 5/5
I love realself, because it has helped me along my journey of finding a doctor, educating myself on the procedures and learning about the good and bad things that could happen. At one point I felt I was obsessed with realself. I spent hours looking at pictures and reading reviews from other members. I absolutely love realself.
Very helpful 3/5
I found the website very helpful with providing so much good information.
RealSelf is very helpful! 5/5
I find that reading all the many reviews on RealSelf is very helpful. I have a TT scheduled next month and I feel it gives me a starting point in knowing what to expect. The ladies who post to it from beginning to end (or at least 6 mo. post-op) are pioneers themselves (most haven't done anything like this before) and they blaze a trail for the rest of us to follow. Also, to have doctors available to answer questions is also amazing. I've posted 2, and several doctors answered both. Great site!
Works fine 4/5
Works fine but I wish it was some way to filter out old reviews. I keep seeing the same or old reviews on my news feed.
Fix this mess! 5/5
Unable to log on-continues to display update-unusable! Please fix this app!

It's not updating and not allowing me to use the app. Can someone please fix this problem soon??
Simply does not work 1/5
Unable to upload question, with or without photos.
