For many patients considering a facelift, the pain of recovery is one of the greatest reasons they hesitate to book a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. That is why Dr. Paul Lanfranchi dedicates a significant amount of attention to easing the recovery process, which he has perfected during his long, illustrious career.
The TLC Lift™ and the TLC Premier Lift™
Our most renowned procedure, the TLC Lift™, focuses on the lower face, jawline, jowls, and neck. The neck in particular concerns many patients, as this area seems to magnify the signs of aging. Dr. Lanfranchi and the TLC Team specialize in treating only the face and neck. As such, they have mastered the facelift art of repositioning the SMAS layer of muscle that makes up the support structure of the face. Next, they contour the facial tissues to reduce jowling, under chin fullness, and muscle banding of the neck if necessary. Once these underlying layers are remodeled, the skin is tightened, reducing wrinkles and “turkey/chicken neck” folds and freshening the appearance of the lower face and neck. The TLC Premier Lift™ includes additional procedures, such as upper and lower eyelid lifts, brow lift, or facial fat transfer to customize your facelift and create a whole new you. These additional procedures do not significantly increase overall recovery time. The TLC Premier Lift™ is incredibly popular for turning back the clock more than any other procedure available at The Lanfranchi Center
Why Choose The Lanfranchi Center?
All procedures performed at The Lanfranchi Center are done under local anesthesia with oral sedation. The reason? Patient safety. General anesthesia bears many risks and lengthens recovery time as the medication affects the whole body rather than just the treatment area. Dr. Lanfranchi has safely been performing procedures using local anesthesia with oral sedation for the entirety of his career. This means your experience is top notch, with fewer risks, a faster recovery time, and the results are beautiful and natural.

How Painful is a Facelift?
To maximize your outcome and minimize complications, Team TLC will explain your procedure in detail during your consultation, so you will know what to expect the day of your facial rejuvenation and beyond. We’ll hold your hand through the journey from beginning to end, including providing comprehensive care instructions for before and after your procedure. Preparing well for your rejuvenation day will maximize your outcome and minimize your recovery time, so you’re back to your daily schedule within 5-10 days. Some patients with less strenuous jobs may even return to work sooner.
After your facelift, you’ll be prescribed pain medication to help minimize discomfort. Swelling, bruising, and redness are all normal effects of a facelift. Elevating yourself on pillows and getting plenty of rest following your procedure, as well as avoiding sun exposure, will also speed the healing process. Every patient’s tolerance for pain differs, and Team TLC will work with you to make your recovery as quick and pain-free as possible. Most of our patients have said their TLC Lift™ or TLC Premier Lift™ was easier to handle than a visit to the dentist’s office
