Pre-Operative Required Tests

Give the following info to your doctor so he/she knows what medical tests you will need before your surgery with Dr. Lev. Make sure you take these tests NO SOONER than one month before your surgery as Dr. Lev wants the most recent test results possible and the closer to your surgery date that you take your tests, the happier he is.

Please scan and email the test results to Didi Carr Reuben at trlwd2@gmail.com. Note: If you have questions or other concerns regarding our procedures or would like to make an appointment, please use our contact form.

Pre-Op Required Tests

  • Hemogram (CBC)
  • Bleeding Studies (PT-PTT)
  • Blood Urea
  • Creatinin
  • Blood Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Glucose
  • Urinalysis
  • H.I.V.
  • Hepatitis C antibodies
* Please Note: If you are 40 or older, you will need a simple EKG test (in addition to the listed blood tests) which can be done by any doctor with an EKG machine.

Before you go to Costa Rica for your surgery, it is strongly advised that you make an appointment with a dermatologist and have your facial skin checked out for signs of skin cancer. If there is skin cancer on the face, Dr. Lev cannot proceed with the surgery, so it's a good idea not to take any chances and have that checkup by a dermatologist.
