Smooth, Lean Body Contours
Liposuction St. Louis
You have changed your eating habits, learned to love the gym, and lost the weight. Unfortunately, certain trouble zones, such as the belly, upper arms, and thighs, may still have stubborn deposits of fat that just won’t go away, no matter how many crunches, push-ups, and squats you do. Dr. Richard Moore and the caring team at The Lifestyle Center can help.
Dr. Moore has been performing office-based liposuction procedures for seven years and was the first physician to introduce Tickle Lipo to the state of Missouri two years ago. We can provide Tickle Liposuction from the comfort of our St. Louis medical cosmetic and laser center. This state-of-the-art liposuction method can remove stubborn fat in a way that maintains patient comfort, reduces swelling and recovery time, and still provides outstanding results.

What to Expect from Tickle Liposuction
Before we proceed with a Tickle Lipo procedure, we will first discuss your goals for the treatment, as well as your medical history and lifestyle habits. Since The Lifestyle Center focuses on a comprehensive approach to patient care, we will also discuss post-procedure strategies for maximizing your results. On the day of the treatment, Dr. Moore will apply local anesthesia before making tiny incisions in the targeted area. Next, the area is infused with a numbing fluid before the Tickle Lipo suction cannula is inserted. This sophisticated device selectively suctions fat in a way that eliminates tunneling, leaves the blood vessels intact, and causes less trauma to the fat cells (meaning that the fat removed during Tickle Lipo provides exceptional transfer stock for butt (Brazilian Butt Lift) and Natural Breast Augmentation using the fat transfer method. The average Tickle Lipo procedure takes 1-2 hours, and you can expect to return to work within a few days. After the procedure, we will want to see you back in the office a few times during the following weeks and months so we can monitor your progress.
Tickle Lipo in Context
Tickle Lipo alone provides results that are noticeable almost immediately. However, when performed in conjunction with complementary therapies, most of our patients experience faster healing and improved results. Ideally, we would like you to return to the office for a lymphatic massage within 24-48 hours of your procedure. This type of therapeutic massage stimulates the lymphatic system, one of your body's primary means of removing waste and toxins. Using rhythmic strokes and movements toward the lymph nodes, lymphatic massage improves your circulation and helps reduce fluid retention in order to expedite your recovery and maximize your results. After receiving Tickle Lipo, our patients also undergo Venus Freeze treatments to tighten and tone the skin, which can sag slightly after fat removal.
Are You a Candidate for Tickle Liposuction?
Ideal candidates for Tickle Lipo have either reached their ideal weight, or are within 10-15 pounds of their ideal weight. Candidates should be in good overall health, and have realistic expectations about what Tickle Lipo can help them achieve.
