Modern Luxury Manhattan names Dr. Jacono New York’s top facelift surgeon
The Best Facelift Surgeon in New York
New York has always been the center of fashion, cuisine, and artistry: millions visit the Big Apple every year to experience its sights, smells, tastes, and sounds. In other words, Manhattan is, and always has been, the light of global culture.
It comes as no surprise, then, that Manhattan is also home to some of the best plastic surgeons and dermatologists. A trip down Park Avenue will have you brush paths with the most talented aesthetic practitioners in the country, if not the world. These doctors pride themselves on offering the most exquisite nip-and-tucks and non-invasive treatments. In the best cases, they can make their patients look between fifteen and twenty years younger.
But who among this group of elite physicians is the most respected and sought-after? Modern Luxury Manhattan believes it to be none other than Dr. Jacono, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon located at 630 Park Avenue. “It is an incredible honor to be included in this issue as one of the best plastic surgeons in New York,” says Dr. Jacono. “I am also excited that my signature technique, the deep-plane facelift, has been featured.”
A Cut Above
What, exactly, sets Dr. Jacono apart from the rest of his ilk? The answer lies in the details. While the vast majority of plastic surgeons employ a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approach, Jacono relies on his artistry to deliver great outcomes.
“For me, my methods are secondary to the overall aesthetic. My surgical techniques are complex and advanced, but they’re not the whole procedure. My eye for harmonious proportions always guides me. That’s why my patients look natural.”
In addition to being a master surgeon, Dr. Jacono is also a dedicated scientist. He is constantly at the cutting edge of surgical advancements, lecturing at conferences and symposia around the world. He has also published studies in an array of peer-reviewed medical journals, including the Aesthetic Surgery Journal.
“Staying up-to-date on modern advancements not only challenges me but gives my patients more options,” says Dr. Jacono. “At the end of the day, I want to make my clients as happy as possible, and that begins with research.”
More than anything else, Dr. Jacono believes in natural-looking results. Unlike plastic surgeons on the West Coast, he caters to a more discerning clientele that is wary, if not downright afraid, of looking overdone. To avoid this, he has developed laser-precise procedures that avoid pulling skin and muscle too tight. To him, less is more, and subtlety is key. The best example of Dr. Jacono’s aesthetic sense is his signature technique: the Extended Deep-Plane Facelift.
What Is the Extended Deep-Plane Facelift?
The Extended Deep-Plane Facelift is a fresh take on older, less reliable facelifting methods. The traditional facelift, for example, pulls facial skin taut without manipulating underlying musculature. The SMAS facelift, an improvement on the traditional, separates skin and muscle before pulling both horizontally.
These techniques certainly eliminate wrinkles, lines, and jowls. However, they come with undeniable problems. Most patients report looking “glossy” after surgery as if their skin were covered in cling wrap. Others say that they look overfilled, or like they’ve had a lot of cosmetic surgery. With these complaints come issues of self-image. In some cases, patients get revision surgery to correct the flaws of a previous procedure.
Early in his career, Dr. Jacono became dissatisfied with the pitfalls of the traditional and SMAS facelifts. In his view, they didn’t do enough important structural work and only treated the face on a superficial level. This led him to pioneer and perfect the Extended Deep-Plane Facelift, an advanced, difficult-to-master procedure.
Dr. Jacono’s signature lift does not separate skin and muscle. Instead, it lifts the two together as a single unit, which prevents the face from looking tight or pulled. It also releases key ligaments, which allow for tension-free movement of specific tissues. After everything is repositioned on a vertical plane, the face loses its wrinkles, folds, and other age-induced imperfections. The technique also firms drooping cheeks, tightens the jawline, and snatches the neck.
“The reason that the Extended Deep-Plane Facelift looks so natural is that it doesn’t pull everything to an unnatural degree,” says Dr. Jacono. “Releasing certain ligaments allows tissue to move in a more dramatic way without risk. Additionally, lifting everything vertically places it in a more natural position. When we age, our faces don’t droop horizontally—they fall vertically.”
To Dr. Jacono, the Extended Deep-Plane Facelift is the culmination of his life’s work. It is not exactly a surprise that he has become globally renowned for the technique. After all, it is the best, most natural-looking option out there, and it will likely stay that way for a long time to come.
