The Lifestyle Center is a leader in the no-implant, fat transfer breast augmentation procedure. We offer a minimally invasive, patient-friendly alternative to breast implants. If you’re interested in natural breast augmentation, we will give you the natural and attractive breasts you desire, without major surgery.
The Lifestyle Center was founded by Richard Moore, M.D. who is a leading physician in the area of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in St Louis, Missouri. Dr. Moore has been featured on Fox 2 News, Great Day Saint Louis on KMOV-4, KMOX radio, and is a frequent guest on Vital Signs (97.1 FM Talk).
Natural Breast Augmentation & Enhancement with Fat Transfer
If you are looking for a natural breast augmentation, we can help you at The Lifestyle Center. We employ stem cell rich fat cells harvested with the Tickle Lipo™ and micro-fat grafting technique to achieve an implant free breast augmentation. The procedure is less stressful on your body than traditional implant surgery and recovery time is quick.
During this outpatient procedure, Dr. Moore removes fat from problem areas of your body with the Tickle Lipo™ system. This has been shown to enhance stem cell survival and hence fat survival versus other harvesting techniques. Once the stem cell rich fat has been harvested, Dr. Moore meticulously injects it into the breast using a micro-grafting technique. As a result, you receive the dual benefits of body sculpting problem areas with the natural breast enhancement so many women desire. New moms love this procedure as it restores volume that often dissipates after childbearing. As compared to implants, breast augmentation with fat transfer involves no large incisions or scars and no foreign objects in your body. Further, it has been shown that 44% of women receiving breast implants will need to have further surgery within 7 years due to problems such as encapsulation which makes the breasts hard and firm, infection, rupture, etc.

This procedure is done as an outpatient under local anesthesia and wakeful sedation.
Average recovery time is 2-4 days, a lot quicker than implant surgery.
