We’ve all experienced more than our fair share of skin blemishes. Lucky for us, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Lyons performs cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery in Westchester, New York, along with other many minimally invasive procedures. Among the best for correcting surface blemishes is the Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing procedure. This procedure is able to improve the appearance of:
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Enlarged pores
Bellava Medical Spa in Westchester uses the latest, FDA-approved laser technology to carry out this procedure. This device is the only FDA-approved laser to reduce the visibility of stretch marks. As an added bonus, the Medspa is offering $200 off of this procedure for the month of March! Your skin will look and feel rejuvenated and healthy after only 3-5 treatments, depending on the extent of the damage to the skin. The results can be targeted to specific areas using the handheld device, and recovery time for this procedure is almost negligible.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Lyons also offers a laser skin peel, which can be used to treat deep blemishes in the skin. This cosmetic procedure also utilizes a handheld laser device, but only requires one treatment for the majority of patients. This also requires a very small amount of downtime post-procedure. The Laser Skin Peel can drastically improve the feel and appearance of your skin by targeting the following issues:
- Deep wrinkles
- Skin texture
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Pore size
The Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing and Laser Skin Peel cosmetic procedures at Westchester’s Bellava MedSpa stimulate your skin to produce new collagen, and thus literally create younger, fresher looking skin. These procedures are quick, efficient ways to achieve beautiful skin anywhere on your body in a non-invasive way, utilizing FDA-approved technology at the hands of board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lyons. Combine either of these procedures with a liquid lift or mini-facelift for superb results, targeting deep within the skin to improve surface quality, while also accentuating the shape of the face by reducing sagging skin and strengthening the appearance of the cheekbones.
A full facelift is also a safe way to attain results, as Dr. Lyons has performed over 3,000 of these surgeries and is the best in the area. Chemical peels and photo facials are also available at the Bellava Medical Spa in Westchester, depending on your unique skincare needs. The MedSpa is offering $250 off a series of three photofacials for the month of March! Photofacial procedures are great for reducing sun damage and the effects of aging, particularly dark spots and wrinkles.

Eye and Cheek Lifts in WestchesterTuesday, April 8, 2014
Eyes are often a person’s most beautiful feature, but can start to look different as aging progresses. Among the most common changes are drooping eyelids, which can obscure the natural shape of the eye. Others include bags under the eyes, eyelid wrinkles, and eyelid puffiness. Many people feel that their eyes begin to look permanently tired due to these changes, and that they could use some improvement. Bellava Med Spa in Westchester offers a variety of plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery, as well as minimally invasive procedures, to treat everyone’s needs as aging begins to change their bodies.
Dr. Lyons performs phenomenal cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery in Westchester’s Bellava Spa. Among the procedures offered are eyelifts (blepharoplasty), where he is able to re-shape the eyelids and eliminate the appearance of aging and tiredness. This is done safely under local anesthesia, and the estimated recovery period is less than one week. Dr. Lyons is skilled at placing incisions in the natural creases of the eye, or on the inside of the eyelid, where scars will not be visible. Botox is an option for preventing wrinkles and sagging of the skin, or to treat mild cases of it. Blepharoplasty is more efficient at targeting the more developed issues around the eyes, and has the added benefit of lasting for years.
Issues corrected by this cosmetic surgery at Bellava MedSpa in Westchester include the following:
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping upper eyelids
- Wrinkled lower eyelids
- Puffiness of the eyelids
- Narrowing of the eyes
- More effective than Botox
While eyes are frequently considered a person’s best facial feature, there is no doubt that the cheeks play a vital role in the overall perception of the face. Aging, along with the constant pull of gravity, will bring the skin and fat of the cheeks downward, lessening the shaping effect of the cheekbones. The cheeks become less full, and oftentimes there is a visible hollow area. Dermal fillers are another option for treating hollowness in the cheeks and droopy skin, but are moreso suitable for prevention and mild cases. Bellava Med Spa’s cheek lift corrects more advanced issues, and can last up to ten years!
Dr. Lyons’ cheek lift cosmetic surgery will make you look younger and more alert, and provides the following benefits:
- Accentuate the cheekbones, adding shape to the face
- Reducing the hollowness of the cheeks
- Help reduce bags under the eyes
- Reduce deep creases above the mouth
- More effective than dermal fillers
The combination of an eyelid lift and cheek lift can serve as an alternative to a full facelift, which can require 2-3 weeks recovery and is a more invasive process. Both the eyelid lift and the cheek lift cosmetic surgeries usually involve less than one week of recovery time, thus are great for busy parents and professionals. In some cases, it only takes a bit of well-designed work by the wonderful Medical Spa staff in Westchester to make a huge difference in your appearance.
Westchester plastic surgeon Dr. Lyons offers private, complimentary consultations for all cosmetic procedures at Westchester’s Medical Spa, and will be able to fully explain the eyelid lift and cheek lift procedures in relation to your specific needs.

Adivive for Buttocks in WestchesterTuesday, April 1, 2014
We’re all familiar with plastic surgery implants, which often put silicone or saline gels into areas like the buttocks and breasts to achieve a healthier appearance. These procedures are effective, but may not always turn out as expected. Dr. Lyons at the Bellava Medical Spa in Westchester offers a more natural alternative to artificial implantation cosmetic surgery: Adivive Fat Transfer! This is a minimally invasive procedure that is sure to improve the firmness and fullness of the buttocks. This procedure tends to have a higher long-term success rate than other methods used.
Adivive is a fat transfer system that is approved by the FDA. Fat is taken from other areas of the body, such as the tummy or thighs, processed, and injected into the buttocks. While similar cosmetic surgeries may have a lower rate of fat retention to the injected area, the Adivive system “purifies” the fat grafts by removing excess materials like oils. This means that the buttocks will continue to look healthier and firmer for a longer period of time. The benefits of the Adivive cosmetic procedure at Bellava MedSpa Westchester include:
- Lasting results: often a 70-80% fat retention rate
- No scarring occurs
- More efficient fat grafts than other procedures
- Local anesthesia is used
- FDA approved cosmetic procedure
- Firmer buttocks are achieved
- Buttocks become lifted and fuller
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. James Lyons may recommend coupling the Adivive Fat Transfer procedure with a SlimLipo Laser procedure. This is FDA approved and only requires a few days of recovery time after it is completed. This cosmetic procedure is utilized to eliminate unwanted fat via a laser technique that achieves long lasting results.
One major perk to combining both the Adivive Fat Transfer and the SlimLipo fat reduction cosmetic surgeries at Westchester is that it reduces overall recovery time, as opposed to having to come back and undergo a SlimLipo procedure afterwards. You will see even more drastic improvements in the shape of your body and the fat density in various areas when you undergo both procedures simultaneously. The SlimLipo procedure can be done on the thighs to achieve a more localized improvement in conjunction with the buttocks enhancement, or on another area of the body for a more complete transformation. Benefits of SlimLipo at Bellava MedSpa Westchester include:
- Ability to sculpt the body into the desired shape
- Safer than regular liposuction
- Minimally invasive
- Removes fat in the desired areas permanently
- Tightens loose or sagging skin
- Can be used on the breasts for amazing results, eliminating the need for breast reduction plastic surgery, and allowing for less recovery time and scarring
- Can be used for many areas, including the breasts, buttocks, thighs, abdomen, neck, back, and more.
Westchester plastic surgeon Dr. Lyons offers private, complimentary consultations for all cosmetic procedures at Westchester’s Bellava Medical Spa, and will be able to fully explain the Adivive for Buttocks procedure in relation to your specific needs.

Breast Augmentation and Adivive Fat Transfer in WestchesterWednesday, March 26, 2014
Dr. Lyons at Bellava’s Medical Spa in Westchester, New York, offers a variety of options when it comes to enhancing breast size and shape. The traditional method of breast augmentation involves implanting saline or silicone gels into the breasts. A more natural alternative to this is the Adivive Fat Transfer system, which takes fat from another area of the body and injects it into the breasts. Both of these breast enhancing cosmetic surgeries at Westchester can help with the following:
- Enlarging naturally small breasts
- Adding symmetry to breasts that are different sizes
- Bringing breasts back to their former state after pregnancy
- Lifting breasts to eliminate sagging
Traditional breast augmentation requires general anesthesia, and causes a small amount of scarring, which Dr. Lyons places in inconspicuous areas such as the armpit and the crease underneath the breast. The implants can last up to 25 years, and do not inhibit your ability to breastfeed. There is a short recovery period after this plastic surgery, and mild swelling may last for up to a month. Bellava Med Spa in Westchester is offering $500 off “Natrelle Gummy Bear Implants” for the month of March!
The Adivive Fat Transfer procedure simply takes fat from another place on your body and injects it into the breasts. This leads to a more natural feel and look of the breasts. Fat can be taken from thighs, the tummy, upper arms, and other areas of the body. This cosmetic surgery allows for long lasting results, with a 70-80% fat retention rate in the breasts. This is achieved by “purifying” the fat by removing extra materials like oils, allowing it to last longer.
- Adivive Fat Transfer is used for smaller size increases, in increments of one cup size per treatment. For those desiring a larger increase in size, traditional augmentation or multiple Adivive procedures will be recommended
- Adivive allows you to reduce the fat density in the area of removal, while at the same time achieving fuller breasts
- This procedure causes no scarring, uses local anesthesia, and requires little recovery time
- Plastic surgeon Dr. Lyons has performed over 1,000 procedures
For those who may be interested in breast reduction, Dr. Lyons at Bellava’s Medical Spa in Westchester has multiple options for you, too. Breast Reduction Surgery may be performed to reduce the size and manipulate the shape of the breasts, as well as improve symmetry. This is great for improving posture and decreasing the severity of back problems associated with very large breasts. It also improves your range of movement, and ability to fit into clothing.
Alternatively, Dr. Lyons offers a SlimLipo procedure, which can be utilized to reduce breast size permanently. The recovery time is only a few days, and the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. This procedure will also tighten loose skin around the area.
Westchester plastic surgeon Dr. Lyons offers private, complimentary consultations for all cosmetic procedures at Westchester’s Medical Spa, and will be able to fully explain the Breast Augmentation and Adivive Fat Transfer procedures in relation to your specific needs. To schedule a free consultation, call 914-600-5295 today!
