Schedule your Surgery

A Step-By-Step Guide/Checklist
(Please print this out and check each item off as you go)

() Make sure your Passport is in order...you will need one to go to Costa Rica.

()Schedule a date for your surgery. Please contact us for available dates.

() Take photos of yourself (for facelift patients take close-ups of front and side views of your face) and send them to Dr. Macaya by email at: fmacaya@arrivacostarica.com

() With your photos, please include a cover note with your name, any questions and your preferred  surgery date. You will receive a confirmation of your dates.

() Fill out the Health Questionnaire and send it to us. You may send your photos by separate email.

() Make an appointment for your pre-op physical (print out the "Preparations prior to surgery" and take it with you when you go in for your tests). Dr. Macaya prefers the test results to be done within a month of surgery. The doctor prefers the blood and heart evaluation results to be as close to your surgery date as possible. If you do not wish to have the pre-op physical and test done at home, you may have them done here at a minimum cost.

() Once you receive your confirmation, you may make your airline reservations. When you have your flight schedule set, please email the Las Cumbres Inn with your dates, and arrival time, and they will reply with a confirmation. They will pick you up at the airport and provide all the transportation during your stay.

() For all information regarding airport pick up, transportation, lodging and local customs, please contact the Las Cumbres Inn, San Jose, Costa Rica through email or telephone: 011-506-228-1011. They will coordinate all appointments and transportation with the doctors office.
