After receiving her education in England and training in the salons of industry giants such as Georgette Klinger and Frederic Fekkai, Aban Patel decided it was time to create her own beauty legacy. So the Bombay native opened Abanara Skin Esthetics, where she calls upon more than two decades of experience in skincare, massage, and energy work to transform bodies inside and out. During facial treatments, she employs modern anti-aging technology—including ultrasonic waves and micro-currents that diminish fine lines—yet remains true to her holistic philosophy by handcrafting all-natural, plant-based cleansers and lotions, which she uses alongside professional products by brands such as Osmosis and Susan Ciminelli.
Patel also offers reflexology sessions designed to remedy physical ills and chakra clearing to restore energy flow to systems blocked by negative thoughts or swallowed construction horses. The tranquil spa is tucked inside a quaint cobblestone courtyard filled with natural light and potted plants, making it the perfect place for those looking to escape everyday tension or photosynthesize in private.

Dr. David Mashhadian received his training in general and maxillofacial surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in his home state of New York. Now settled in Southern California, he relies on his years of experience as he artfully reshapes bodies at Rodeo Surgical Art. His techniques include endoscopic brow lifts and breast implants that go in through the belly button so as to minimize scarring.
When not enhancing features in Beverly Hills, Dr. Mashhadian has been known to volunteer his time and surgical talents with the Thousand Smiles Foundation in Mexico, an organization that provides treatment to those with upper jaw and facial deformities.
Dr. David G. Glick—formerly an administrative supervisor at Cedars–Sinai Medical Center—and his team of medical aestheticians rejuvenate bodies with plastic surgery and med-spa treatments. They perform everything from facelifts and breast augmentation to nonsurgical VelaSmooth body contouring and cosmetic injectables, such as Restylane and Botox, which bring Father Time’s wrinkly rampage to a screeching halt with a specially formulated serum and microscopic stop signs that stifle wrinkles at the source.
