Get Rid of Stubborn Fat With SlimLipo and CoolSculpting in Westchester, NY

May 29, 2014

It’s that time of year again–New Year’s Resolution time. For many, that means working
on getting the body of our dreams. After all of that holiday indulgence, a renewed commitment to a healthy diet and exercise regime is a fantastic way to meet that goal. However, diet and exercise are often not enough. That’s because many of us carry areas of fat that just does not want to budge no matter how much we exercise or eat right.

At Bellava MedAesthetics & Plastic Surgery Center in Bedford Hills, NY, we offer the most advanced, state-of-the-art fat removal cosmetic procedures available today: Coolsculpting and SlimLipo. In our experience, clients who undergo these techniques are often more committed than ever before to maintaining their newly slim downed bodies. In other words, they are less likely to be frustrated and throw in the towel when they look in the mirror! After undergoing SlimLipo or Coolsculpting in Westchester, clients are usually thrilled with how they look, and the new goal is about maintenance rather than weight loss.

SlimLipo™ Liposuction in Westchester, NY

Laser body sculpting is the 21st century solution for contouring your physique and quickly achieving the body you want. FDA-approved SlimLipo in Bedford Hills treats your problem areas gently but firmly — removing fat and reducing irregular contouring. This highly targeted laser lipolysis system is ideal for fat reduction in the abdomen, buttocks, flanks, male chest, upper arms, as well as also smaller, hard-to-address areas like the chin, back or ankles.

At Bellava Medaesthetics and Plastic Surgery Center, SlimLipo procedures are carried out by our highly recognized Westchester, NY, plastic surgeon James R. Lyons, MD. Dr. Lyons has carried out thousands of SlimLipo procedures in his 20-plus career. In fact, he is an expert in all fat removal treatments including Tummy Tucks and Mini Tummy Tucks, which he also performs regularly at Bellava in our Joint Commission-accredited medical suite.

SlimLipo is performed under local anesthesia and recovery time is quick—generally 1-3 days. For those patients who have excessive loose skin, it can be combined with a Mini Tummy Tuck.Our laser liposuction patients hail from throughout Westchester County from towns such as Rye, White Plains, Armonk, Katonah and as well as the Connecticut towns of Ridgefield and Danbury.


Coolsculpting is an ideal treatment for those patients who are only interested in nonsurgical fat removal that requires no anesthesia, no cutting or down time. It is a great treatment for those looking to lose 10-15 pounds, and is great for getting rid of that abdominal pooch or muffin top, love handles, flanks or bra roll.

CoolSculpting at our Bedford Hills, NY facility works by freezing stubborn fat that is then naturally eliminated by the body. In the weeks and months after your first treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer from the desire area. Since CoolSculpting works to freeze fat cells deep below the skin’s surface, the outer layer of skin is not damaged nor is there any scarring. Oftentimes, two or more CoolSculpting treatments are recommended for best results. Note, SlimLipo is a better choice than CoolSculpting if you are seeking a greater amount of fat reduction in 1 session, and/or if you need skin tightening.Bellava is the premier CoolSculpting destination for patients hailing from the Westchester towns of Rye, White Plains, Armonk, Harrison, Mamaroneck, Katonah and as well as the Connecticut towns of Ridgefield and Danbury.

To determine which fat removal and body sculpting treatment is best for you, it is important to meet with either Dr. Lyons or one of our expert clinicians. Make a commitment to beat the bulge in 2014 and call Bellava for your FREE consultation today: 914-600-5294.
