It is rude and unacceptable for a person to book a date for surgery with Dr. Lev and then cancel so close to the date that there isn't enough time to rebook. When you cancel close to the scheduled surgery date or just don't show up (yes, believe it or not, once in awhile there are people who are that inconsiderate,) several people are negatively affected by those actions. Dr. Lev, the anesthesiologist, the clinic, the nurses, and you may have taken a date that someone else would have wanted.

Clearly, we've been too lenient when it comes to the required $1000 deposit that patients are supposed to deposit into Dr. Lev's US bank account within two weeks of receiving the Patient Confirmation Form.

So here's the scoop. If you don't meet the two-week deadline to make your required deposit of $1000 into Dr. Lev's US bank account, your surgery date will automatically be put back into the schedule and assigned to another patient. If you need more time to make the deposit, email Didi at and let her know you need more time. We can extend your deposit time as a one-time "courtesy" but you must contact us within that two week period or you will lose your date."

Before You Book Information

Please note: If you plan to lose more than 5 pounds after a facelift, it's advised not to proceed with the surgery until you have lost all the weight you intend to lose. Otherwise, you can lose the beautiful results of Dr. Lev's work.

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.

    I am very interested in a neck and chin lift and possibly a full face lift. How would I go about consulting with the Dr if I live in Canada?

  2. Hello, What is the current price for a full face and neck lift? I am 64 and would like eyes, neck face and forehead done.
