All of our procedures are safely performed under local anesthesia in the comfort and convenience of our Center.  Dr. Lanfranchi has served over 10,000 patients since 2006 using his specialized technique.



Hello Everyone! I wanted to take a minute to share with you the special process we perform here at The Lanfranchi Center. I will also try to answer a common question that most patients have. How much does a facelift cost in Las Vegas? The answer is not an easy one since there are many factors that determine the final cost. Most practices charge a surgical, facility, and anesthesia fee. These can add up to a large expense. What I do want to focus on is the advantage of having your procedure performed under local anesthesia in an office setting. In my opinion the advantages are huge, both from a medical and financial standpoint. I hope you all agree after reading below.

Here at TLC, on the day of your procedure you will be asked to take an oral sedative (i.e. valium) thirty minutes prior to arrival at our Center. This medicine will take away any anxiety and relax you. As you can imagine, giving effective local anesthesia is both a learned skill and an art. Through ten years of experience I have perfected many different techniques to make this portion of the treatment as comfortable as possible. To be completely honest, the vast majority our patients state that their treatment day was easier than going to the dentist for a dental procedure! Below is a before and after photo of one our clients who had the TLC Premier Lift all under local anesthesia in our Center.

The most biggest advantage to this approach is its SAFETY. By not using dangerous deeper sedation such as general anesthesia, one’s entire body is not unnecessarily stressed. Putting yourself at risk for systemic, even sometimes fatal, complications (i.e. cardiac or lung problems) for a cosmetic procedure does not seem like a bet worth taking. However, this is how most plastic surgeons still practice today. Our alternative method allows us to treat patients of any age, as well as some of those with moderate medical histories (i.e. smokers, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes). This lets our patients safely enjoy the benefits of a facelift, neck lift, or eyelid lift without the unnecessary risks of being put to sleep. For some patients we may contact their family physician to be sure they are in good health before proceeding. Your safety is never compromised, and is always our number one concern.

Amazingly, more than 50% of our patients sleep through the majority of their treatment session. There are even some patients that claim that they did not remember anything about the actual procedure whatsoever! The remaining patients enjoy listening to music of their choice (we have Pandora Radio available in all procedure rooms) while we are working. Most clients admit to dozing off here and there simply because they are so relaxed. Nearly 100% of our patients state afterwards that their experience was easier than they had anticipated. Most clients state that the anticipation of the procedure(s) was far worse than having the actual procedure(s) itself!

To readdress the opening question of “what does a facelift cost in Las Vegas”?, we can now safely guess that pricing can vary greatly based on how “complicated” the process is. We have shown for nearly a decade that these procedures can be safely and effectively performed in an office-based setting. The only fee we charge our patients is the surgical fee. The patient also happens to get the most experienced facial plastic surgeon and Team as their partner!

Stellar Service from Start to Finish

Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.

The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
