Well after watching this site almost 2 years, I have been in contact with several patients of Dr. Lev and I am booked for Tummy Tuck and Breast Implants the 19th Then a second surgery the 27th Facelift to include neck upper eye and lip lift. I will put up my hideous before pics . I had no idea how horrid it was till I took these, LOL of course I keep it all sucked tucked and pushed up but can't wait till I can relax.

16 day's away from my arrival in Costa Rica

well I will be putting up Before tummy and face when I get there and I will keep updates and answer as many questions as I can. I get so frustrated with some of the fake reviews our there. One even contacted me directly to say her review was not true about a different Dr. I have had email contact with several clients of Dr. Lev and I have a maxillofacial surgeon as a boyfriend he will be watching every stitch. Stay tuned and contact me if you are going between Jan. - 17th-Feb. 11th we can share our time
in recovery

8 day's to go

Pretty excited so here are the before ugly pics. It is so much worse in pictures than my mirror. I am pretty sure that is God's since of humor eyes get bad so we don't see ourselves age LOL

On my way

I am on my way this morning so took before tummy last night.

Tummy Done

Couple more pictures

Day 1 facelift

Just got back to room 1st look

3rd day

Three day's is too long in this helmet get your surgery on a Monday - Wednesday

HELLmett off

Hell is what that thing is . Dr. Removed it and drains eyelid stitches out looking forward to tomorrow take new bandage off and wash hair

Day 4

Pain is gone, just really really tight

10 day's after face

hardest part is the waiting for bruising to go away.


I swear I had said I was staying at Verdeza but I somehow di not. They are fantastic and for $140 a night which includes all food, all transportation to the scheduled appointments with your Dr. I also had my surgery done at the local clinic rather than the hospital. You are never alone for a moment and they are also very professional, and nice. I feels very third world when you drive up, but once inside you can relax. Carlos the driver is also very very helpful and makes sure you understand everything. No regrets

Bruises still dark

I hope the bruises get a lot lighter before Saturday when I go home. Still can't stand up completely straight either.

Headed Home

19 day's since facelift

Still bruised under left eye and neck. I started wearing makeup but still so tight. I feel like the big headed Queen from Alice in wonderland. I can't wait for my head to feel normal. My tummy is still so swollen tried to wear jeans they fit great but it feels so weird. I hope I can sneeze without saying ouch lol.

Pics three weeks after


Still really swollen but much better than before Surgery

Multiple Treatments

Why can't we chose all of them it looks like I paid a fortune for one thing.

Only one regret

Just too low and scar too wide. I am lucky my husband can resurface with his laser after six months or so

Picture Face 3 months post

Still getting better this is 4/28/2017 surgery done 1/27/17
Costa Rica Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Lev was just as every other person has described. He and the entire staff of the clinic and Verdeza were awesome. I have no regrets other than the amount of discomfort of the tummy tuck and how long before I start ti feel normal.
