RealSelf Top 100


Robert A. Hardesty, MD, FACS, a Diplomate and Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery has proudly been honored by RealSelf Top 100 twice (2017 & 2018) and top 500 once (2016).

What is the RealSelf 100?

The following was obtained from the RealSelf web site and other sources.

Realself’s 100 signifies the best of the RealSelf Top Doctor participants. The RealSelf 100 award goes to those physicians whose dedication, consistency, and willingness to respond to prospective patients’ questions and patient feedback are unparalleled.
In March 2018 RealSelf announced the RealSelf 100. This select group is a compilation of the top-rated and most-engaged plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and aesthetic physicians on the RealSelf site in 2017.

The Medical Professionals who contribute to RealSelf share their expertise (free of charge) with the members of the RealSelf community who seek information about elective cosmetic procedures. This forum of members and physicians uniquely provides a platform to discuss through questions or actual patient photos.

How Are Doctors Chosen?

Those included on the RealSelf 100 list have together contributed 25% of the estimated half a million total answers posted to RealSelf in 2016.

Criteria for inclusion on the list are:

  1. The quantity and quality of patient reviews.
  2. Engagement with the RealSelf community via questions and answers.
  3. The sharing of before and after treatment photos.

“The RealSelf 100 represents an exclusive group of doctors who embody both excellent patient service and an ongoing commitment to educating consumers shopping in the aesthetics market,” says Tom Seery, founder and CEO of RealSelf
