How to Read the Tables

SCORE: The "score" column for each review site lists the average score assigned to that doctor by the people who posted ratings on that review website. Each site uses a scale from 1-5, with 5 being the highest rating possible.

BOX COLOR REFLECTS THE SCORE:
  • Green Boxes: Scores from 4-5 (highest scores possible) are colored green
  • Yellow Boxes: Scores from 3.0-3.9 (medium scores) are colored yellow
  • Red Boxes: Scores from 1.0-2.9 (lowest scores) are colored red
  • Clear Boxes: When there is no score to report for this doctor on this review site, the box remains blank

#: The "#" column lists the number of reviewers who posted ratings and reviews for each doctor on each review site.

TOTAL: The "Total" column is the product of the score and the number of reviewers.

GRAND TOTAL: The "Grand Total" column is the sum of the "Total" scores from each review site. Plastic surgeons on this table are listed in order of their Grand Total Scores, from highest to lowest.

GRAND TOTAL BOX COLOR:
  • GREEN Grand Total Boxes: Grand Total Boxes are colored GREEN when the doctor received only GREEN scores from each of the ratings sites that reported ratings for the doctor. The doctor may also have some empty (clear) scores if no ratings have been reported for that doctor, but doctors with GREEN Grand Total scores will have no yellow or red ratings.
  • YELLOW Grand Total Boxes: Grand Total Boxes are colored YELLOW when the doctor received a YELLOW score from at least one of the ratings sites, but no red scores.
  • RED Grand Total Boxes: Grand Total Boxes are colored RED when the doctor received a RED score from at least one of the ratings sites.

SECTIONS: Plastic surgeons in each geographic region were divided into three sections, based upon their scores:

EMPTY BOXES: Empty white boxes indicate that we were unable to find ratings for that doctor on that ratings site. There could be many reasons for this including that the ratings site used a different spelling or location for the doctor than the ones that we used; it could mean that the doctor's patients did not visit that site to place reviews; and it could mean other things. Empty boxes neither count for nor against a doctors' score on this site.

Things to Make Note of as You Review the Tables

This page includes plastic surgeons who practice plastic surgery in this geographic region and who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. Doctors who perform plastic surgery but who are not certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons are not included on this site.

There are sites beyond those listed here which provide physician reviews, but not all review sites could be included for practical reasons. The plastic surgery review sites which, in the opinion of TopPlasticSurgeonReviews.com, are the most popular and most pertinent were selected for this website. We have observed that the ratings and reviews for most plastic surgeons tend to be consistent across all ratings sites, so inclusion of additional sites would not likely change the ratings for most plastic surgeons in a significant way.

If a plastic surgeon does not appear on our site, it may be because the doctor is not certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. Visit this website yourself to find out. Alternatively, we could have omitted the doctor based on a variety of reasons listed in our policies and procedures. Or we could have just made a mistake.

Keep in mind that if a doctor has few ratings, this does not mean that the doctor is not a competent plastic surgeon. It may mean that the doctor does not perform as much surgery as the other doctors, or that the doctor has not been in practice as long, or that the doctor happens to operate on patients who do not provide online reviews, that we made a data entry error, or something else. If a doctor has received ratings that placed the doctor in the yellow or red section, this also does not mean that s/he is not a good plastic surgeon. All it means is that they have one or more unfavorable ratings. And there are reasons why good doctors can sometimes have unfavorable ratings including the following: 1) A complication or bad result (all plastic surgeons have them) which caused a patient to write multiple bad reviews. This may not mean that the doctor did anything wrong, even though the patient thought so. In other words, the same complications could have occurred no matter which plastic surgeon operated on the patient. 2) Bad reviews placed fraudulently by someone wishing to damage the plastic surgeon's reputation (yes, this happens). In these cases, the plastic surgeon typically has little recourse with the ratings site, and they cannot do anything about it. 3) Misplaced ratings: we have seen several instances of a doctor receiving a glowing review and only one out of five stars from the patient who wrote the review. In these cases, the patient might have been thinking "#1" for "first place," but who knows. So these situations do damage the doctor's numbers, but they do not mean that the doctor is a bad plastic surgeon. There are other reasons as well, but it remains that there are many reasons why visitors to this site should not attempt to read too much into a low score. This is also why visitors to this site should use it as a gateway to the source sites to see the ratings and read all of the reviews themselves. For example, if a doctor has a pattern of bad ratings accompanied by detailed reviews describing the unfavorable outcome or experience, then that would present a rational basis upon which to avoid that doctor. But this site does not provide that content. We provide tremendous breadth and a great place to start your search for a plastic surgeon with great reviews, but your journey has just begun.
