Confirmation of the Date of Surgery and Payment

  • In order to confirm your surgery date, we will require a deposit of US$ 1000.00 which can also be done over the phone with a credit card.
  • We would require a credit card release form signed and emailed to us prior to that.
  • Your balance due will be required 2 weeks before your surgery.
  • In order to ensure your safety, we will require blood work that is recent and that has been completed within 6 months of your surgery date.
  • Send us your medical clearance either via fax or email it to the attention of:  Gudrun Watson RN (Fax:  858.500.7778, email:  gurdrun@drgplasticsurgery.com)
  • Once we receive your information we will review it and ensure that you are ready for surgery!
  • When planning for your surgery please ensure that you have someone to take care of you at least for the first 24 hours.
  • For your own safety, Dr. G will not perform surgery without an assigned caretaker who will shuttle you from surgery, take care of you, and bring you back the following day for your post-op appointment.
  • If you do not have someone available, we can always make alternative arrangements.  Currently, we are working with Reprise (www.reprisepostop.com), considered one of the best in California when it comes to patient care. Remember, your convenience and comfort is our top priority!
