Online reviews about a rhinoplasty surgeon or facelift surgeon are helpful to obtain an idea of patient satisfaction. However, it is important to note that online reviews may only be a fraction of that surgeon’s patients’ experiences. Cosmetic surgery is a very subjective field and results may differ from one person to the next depending on taste, perception, or desires for someone’s own results. Even though a result may seem outstanding to the surgeon, patient’s family and friends and outside observers, the patient may never be satisfied with a result as their expectations may not be achievable.
Reviews should be utilized and are most helpful to readers to understand that surgeon’s philosophy, the experience, recovery, and overall satisfaction with things.
