Top Cosmetic Surgeons in So-Cal

20151211_075538santa

You’ve been pondering the decision  for quite sometime now and I get it, its hard to surrender your body and your wallet into the hands of a masked and gloved figure that promises everything from candy coated rain drops to you looking exactly like Megan Fox  once your procedure is complete. Selling a fantasy, yes you are correct in your suspicion that there are surgeons and their respective staff that are out there to simply “land the sale” and take a wild guess who the sale is…that’s right the sale is you.

So, how does one choose you ask? Well there unfortunately, is no iron-clad method of choosing the right surgeon for your procedure or procedures. You can scout the internet all you want, but realistically if you don’t have much inside information then everything that you’ve gathered for the past umpteen months of research is merely a medley of  opinions. What you need is inside information. Allow me to elaborate on “inside information”. Say you want to be a Hollywood actress! this is one of your greatest aspirations. You wouldn’t search the web on the how-to’s of making it big in Hollywood, how to dress what to say and so forth. No, you hot tail your rear-end out to Hollywood and get in the scene, gain first hand knowledge through real experiences. That would qualify as your inside information.

My objective with this article is to provide inside information based on my own first hand experiences working as a nurse with different plastic surgeons. I also worked as a private post-op nurse (assuming care and responsibility for patients directly following surgery, in a private setting) for high-profile patients that would travel to Beverly Hills for different types of procedures from all over the world. I have heard reviews first hand from patients (before and after the anesthesia wore off) and have seen the fresh craftsmanship of different surgeons during my many post-op ventures. Minimal pain and blood loss is very important and as a post-op nurse there lies  a great responsibility and concern with regards to the fragility and well-being of each patient. I have seen patients directly after surgery with hardly any pain and ideal blood loss based on their respective procedures. My exposure to the world of cosmetic surgery has been truly  insightful. Witnessing the dynamics of prestigious medical and surgical establishments at different times of the day, different days of the week as they meet the expectations of several different clients with different personality types and ideals is an experience that I will covet always. Allow me to walk you through two top notch surgery centers in Beverly Hills California. Remember, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and a woman should never compromise her happiness. So let’s get started shall we…

When it comes to Liposuction, by far the best in the west is Dr. David Amron. Talk about true artist, he is a spectacular surgeon. I could not write an article about cosmetic procedures without including Dr. Amron at the very top of the list. Dr. David Amron is a board-certified, Beverly Hills dermatologic surgeon specializing in liposuction and body contouring. For the past 20 years Dr. Amron has focused his research and practice on surgical and non-surgical liposuction and body proportioning as well as other integrative therapies relating to weight loss. Over this period of time he has gained invaluable insight into the genetic function and structural proportions of the human form and developed a refined and comprehensive approach to the art of liposculpture. In our current day and age, educated patients recognize the need for a highly tailored and scientific approach to liposuction. That’s why patients come from all over the world to see Beverly Hills liposuction specialist Dr. David M. Amron, and consider him one of the best liposuction surgeons Beverly Hills has to offer.

Not Your Mama’s Bedroom

 If home is where the heart is, the bedroom must be where the imagination lies. I have always been a fan of a posh, comfy, sexy, classy, elegant…well you get the picture- I love a kick ass bedroom!

A Lioness needs her den and I believe that no expense shall be spared when it comes to bedroom affairs. Lets review the facts. Every household is different, you may very well be the sole member of your household or you could possibly share your home with a bustling group of young-ins’ and a papa bear. Are you the female exec with the killer wardrobe worth a fortune that’s dating that hot pro golfer? Whatever the scenario, I  sincerely hope that your bedroom is that one room in your home that provides a peace of mind and a sense of class and sexy with a side order of OMG. Trust me, the man in your life will love it and will be happy to show his appreciation. If you are unattached, baby a bedroom makeover just might be what you’ve been missing. I have taken the liberty to showcase some of my favorite bedrooms. My advice to you is to mix it up yet keep it smooth and cool and sexy, ultimately the final word is yours. Remember a comfy bedroom will bless you with revitalizing rest, thus you have more energy and feel much better. Enjoy!

Up first, for the classic and sophisticated, here is one of my personal fav’s… Yes, Chandeliers in the bedroom are in-no doubt. Take this example and play around with it. A new coat of paint adds a dramatic change. Don’t forget new clean flooring is everything. One kings Lane has a duvet set that is almost identical to the set pictured below. Etsy has plenty of Chandeliers with that old Hollywood vintage flair that will give your bedroom that sexy timeless appeal

For those of you that are hot tamales and like your bedroom hot as well, you will appreciate these sexy digs…. I love a great deal and have found a ton of Faux Fur blankets and rugs on various sites like Chairish, where you are encouraged to make the seller an offer for an item that you love. If your offer is fair, usually the seller will quickly seal the deal and you may also negotiate shipping with certain shop owners

Are you a little princess at heart and need a bedroom that would go well with your tiara? A few gallons of high end satin paint will get you started on this “pretty in Pink” bedroom. You can add that dramatic Hollywood regency flair with loads of silky draping fabrics that you can snag at an outdoor swap-meet or if you live in Los Angeles, the garment district. Top it off with an over-sized chic rug and leather seating

Boho-Chic? Fabric draped along the ceiling of a bedroom adds a crazy cool effect to any style room. You could do a heavy silk or a flirty lace or sheer. An old vintage outdoor table top makes for a unique and Fabulous headboard. Eclectic lighting sets the mood and makes this room one that I had to add to my list

Also, if you have a nice sized room you could insert a nice seating area. It gives your bedroom more functionality and makes for a great place for a morning coffee

5 Star Dining Los Angeles

Basketball season, Los Angeles-2010 is when I first realized that I had this love affair with fine dining. There I was sitting in the restaurant at the Staples Center with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and a plate of stuffed artichoke hearts, waiting on my main course. To the left of me, a prominent friend much my elder, yet a very established CEO with a well-known prominent law firm and an inventor of a product the he later sold to 3M for a crazy chunk of change. To my right “Dr. Mcguillroy”, prestigious heart surgeon and USC graduate with deep connections with the elite of California’s healthcare industry. Across from me sat another doctor,  whom I learned was a nephrologist out of USC as well, and his young an attractive acquaintance who wore that smashing Yves St. Laurent number.  It was normal for us to gather as such, as we bore season tickets to the Los Angeles Clippers ( L.A.’s under-dog stepchild basketball team) that we loved dearly. We sat 3 rows behind the players and on nights when the alcoholic beverages flowed, they could hear us as we yelled out some pretty interesting dialogue during these intense and highly entertaining games. Now certainly the simple yet acceptable restaurant at the staples center did not strike my 5 star dining fire, no no…however, it was a pre-cursor if I may, to what would soon to be an expensive habit of gather, eat, drink and debate on a regular basis for us well-dressed academics. 

 

344 N. Camden Beverly Hills California…

mr-chow-beverly-hills-expansion

Ok so Mr. Chow’s in Beverly Hills. The wealthy, the pretty, and of course the celeb’s love this place. My first visit here was with a very good friend of mine, a shy accountant with a very fine palate who actually took my fine dining experiences to another level. For starters we had shark fin soup. The story goes that shark fin soup was created by an emperor in the Sung Dynasty (AD 968) who wanted to show how powerful, wealthy and generous he was to his banquet guests. Serving the expensive dish came to be seen as a sign of respect. Shark Fining is very controversial, according to the Huffington post “China has banned shark-fin soup from official government banquets and receptions, according to a report from the state-run Xinhua news agency”. The battle goes on between restaurateurs and private consumers and activist groups around the world with regards to this intriguing dish. The main course was something to definitely write home about, super fine dining with an unparalleled experience. The lychee martinis were crazy delish.

 

930 Hilgard West LA…

STK West LA, apparently so cool that I couldn’t get an image of the interior; but here’s a photo of  Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary (aka Mr.Wonderful) from shark tank, with a combined estimated net worth of over $550 million dollars, basking in the ambiance!

Can you say wagyu? STK known for their Australian wagyu. According to Wikipedia” The Australian Wagyu Association is the largest breed association outside Japan. Both full-blooded and Wagyu-cross cattle are farmed in Australia for domestic and overseas markets, including Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, the U.K., France, Germany, Denmark and the U.S. Australian Wagyu cattle are grain fed for the last 300–500 days of production. Wagyu bred in Western Australia’s Margaret River region often have red wine added to their feed as well.

Sorry, had to get that fact out there, I love my wagyu! Ok so back to the restaurant. Super sexy, swanky with superb service. Truffle fries and the highly coveted table-side caesar salad, which is prepared table-side for your viewing pleasure are two of my favorites. My water-glass will never be empty here as the servers are hyper attentive and well versed with regards to the menu and surprisingly- if you’d like, a brief history of certain dishes that are offered and why that dish is so important to the STK brand. You must have the tuna tartar when visiting this swaggy and sophisticated spot. Ask about the cocktail with the egg foam on top (a cool surprise for your palate). Lastly, I love that the staff greet me by my first name when I call to make a reservation. For the guests that frequent STK, your phone number is saved in their system so when you phone in, your call is answered with an immediate and warm personal greet. STK has my vote any day all day.

 

9200 Sunset West Hollywood…

boa

BOA Steakhouse… Celebrity hot-spot, BOA Steakhouse is a contemporary American steakhouse. A place for the new “Rat Pack” to hang your hats. Great steaks and seafood, something for everyone with an award-winning wine list. And I know what you’re thinking; what if a “celebrity hot-spot” is not your cup of tea, you just want a decent steak and a kick-ass glass of wine. My subtle answer to that concern would be IT’s HOLLYWOOD BABY! Sorry, but that’s the way it goes in those neck of the woods. If the food is excellent, the decor is sexy, the wine list superb and the champagne on point; nine times out of ten it will be a celeb hot-spot with paparazzi outside the door, the whole enchilada honey. If you can get past all of that then your reward is an extraordinary dining experience. Lobster mashed potatoes and that mac n cheese are two of my favorites at BOA. The steak, outstanding and the wine list is definitely A list worthy. Check out Katana, a sister restaurant where you can order filet mignon and foie gras skewers!

 

7963 Melrose Los Angeles…

carl-night

Carlito’s Gardel Argentine steakhouse, one of my personal favorites. Very early on in my fine dining chronicles I was lucky enough to stumble across this honeycomb hide-out on melrose. It started one night while I was online looking for a swanky and intimate spot to dine that offered a killer steak and the best bottle of rosé  west of the 5 freeway. Carlito’s is hidden in plain sight and it is quite a sight to see. At night the crisp white table cloths and soft lighting, compliment the expensive wine glasses and fine china, that compliment the flawless menu that is offered at this Argentine gem. The walls are decorated with some of Carlito’s  most famous guests and although a little tight inside, this fine restaurant made my list purely on quality. They serve a lobster bisque that will take your breath away. If in case you were wondering, the rosé is excellent and worth every penny. Moreover, what stands out here is the service.  As soon as you are seated you are greeted by the waiter and the sommelier. The sommelier Max has curated an impressive 18-page tome of unique and boutique wines with one of the finest and most extensive selections of wines by the glass I’ve seen anywhere. This is one of the few places I can confidently order a $72 bottle of wine that drinks like it costs well over $100. There’s even an entire page dedicated to the rare wines of Giacomo Conterno. Now, that’s a serious wine program. Everyone was friendly and attentive. Someone in my party dropped a utensil on the ground, and within seconds, our waiter magically appeared with a replacement. I will admit that the steak at Carlito’s is as good or better than some of the more well noted spots in the area. Once you feast your eyes on the menu and indulge in the fine experience that Carlito’s Gardel offers, you too will be an instant fan.
