Nurse Practitioner

A Board Certified Advanced Practice Nurse, Lori Lankford has over twenty years of surgical nursing and extensive experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. She has partnered with Dr. Wendel at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery to provide the best procedures and products to address her clients’ areas of concern, and spends quality one-on-one time with our clients to educate and prepare them for procedures and treatments. Lori also teaches nurses, practitioners, doctors and surgeons across the country for injectable products and techniques as an Allergan Medical Institute Trainer.

Lori’s professional goal is to help each of her clients find the best methods to address their skin care concerns and reveal their natural beauty. She focuses on gentle, long-lasting, non-invasive solutions that enhance appearance and self-confidence. Lori listens to her clients to ensure she understands their unique skin care needs. She provides exceptional expertise in non-surgical facial rejuvenation with the Sciton Joule Erbium:YAG Laser – Contour TRL, Profractional XC Therapy, Sciton Broad Band Light (Intense Pulsed Light), RevLite Nd:YAG Laser, and with injectables such as Botox, Dysport, Juvéderm family of fillers, Restylane products, and other available soft tissue fillers. Lori also has experience as an independent consultant and clinical educator for Solta, maker of the Fraxel™ Laser, and Allergan Medical, makers of Botox® Cosmetic, Juvéderm, and Kybella.

Lori stays on the cutting edge of aesthetic medicine. As a national ACE Trainer for AMI (Allergan Medical Institute) and independent practice consultant, she is always one of the first injectors in Nashville to experience use of the newest products coming to market.

Lori lives in Brentwood with her husband Jerry, their children Vivienne & Quin, and their two Westminster terriers, Sophie and Lucy. She enjoys the arts through music, photography, drawing and museum visits. She is actively involved with Cul2vate, a local non-profit.
