A friend of mine hated the deep lines running from her nose to her jawline. “People come up to me on the street and ask me why I am so sad—when I’m not sad at all,” she said, looking—truth be told—a wee bit sad. As a beauty editor and seasoned spa enthusiast, I suggested she investigate fillers and we were off.
James R. Lyons, MD, a board certified plastic surgeon at Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa in Bedford Hills (182 Rte 117 ByPass Rd, Bedford Hills 914-864-2120; bellavaspa.com), recommended Juvéderm, numbed her face, and got to work. Here’s a guy who really loves what he does: he was grinning ear to ear as he injected the filler and massaged it in, stepping back periodically to admire his handiwork. My friend was grinning too, despite the $1,000 price tag, and walked out with noticeably diminished lines.
