Harper’s Bazaar selects Dr. Jacono as one of the best plastic surgeons in the United States.
Dr. Jacono: The Best and Brightest
Dr. Jacono was recently chosen by Harper’s Bazaar as one of the top facial plastic surgeons in the United States. The magazine specifically noted his work with minimally invasive rhinoplasty and aging face procedures, including eyelid lifts and mini facelifts. Jacono has honed and perfected his craft over the course of his career and has innovated a slew of innovative techniques, including his signature deep-plane facelift. This procedure lifts muscle and skin together as a unit, which allows for tension-free movement of tissue. The result is a natural-looking face that does not look tight or pulled.
In short, Dr. Jacono is on the cutting edge of contemporary cosmetic surgery. He has studied and published improvements in facelift, eyelid lift, and rhinoplasty surgeries, and strives to create better more natural results. Unlike other practitioners, he customizes each procedure to the patient’s needs and does not employ cookie-cutter approaches. Instead, he uses his artistry and understanding of facial balance to create beautiful, undetectable outcomes.
Among his peers, Dr. Jacono is considered a leader. He lectures on his techniques all over the world, specifically at plastic surgery symposia. He also publishes in leading medical journals. This is why patients come from all over the world for his services—they can’t find his expertise anywhere else. “It is a great honor to be included in Harper’s Bazaar’s list of top plastic surgeons,” says Dr. Jacono. “I think it’s a testament not only to my ability but to the nature of my techniques. They never make my patients look overdone. Instead, they enhance their faces’ natural balance.”
Choosing Surgery Over Non-Invasive Options
Although Dr. Jacono is a master surgeon, he is aware that some patients would rather undergo minimally invasive procedures—at least at first.
“Skin smoothing lasers, peels, Botox, and other wrinkle erasers are reliable, fast-growing procedures,” he notes. “They are regularly performed by most plastic and cosmetic surgeons in the country.”
In other words, injectables, laser treatments, and other simpler treatments are on the rise, especially in recent years. This is largely due to the advent of social media and the cultural focus on perfectly balanced faces. Celebrities, in particular, are quick to advertise their experiences with cosmetic procedures.
All of this said Dr. Jacono and other aesthetic surgeons maintain that going under the knife is the gold standard. This is particularly true if patients want to significantly rejuvenate the face and body. The reason for this is that surgery directly manipulates and improves underlying structures that minimally invasive options temporarily treat. Surgery aims to resolve causes, not symptoms.
“Most of the time, my patients begin with non- and minimally invasive procedures and graduate to surgery when they realize they need something more dramatic,” says Dr. Jacono. “There is nothing wrong with this. Everyone has their own journey, and there is no right answer.”
Examples of Dr. Jacono’s Work
Facelift Before and After Patient 1:
This lovely 54-year-old patient was worried about her drooping jowls and jawline, her fallen cheeks, her neck bands, and her tired eyes. To reverse these signs of aging, Dr. Jacono performed a deep plane facelift. He combined this procedure with a neck lift. He also performed an upper and lower blepharoplasty to open her eyes. Lastly, he completed an upper lip lift to shorten the distance between the upper lip and the bottom of the nose.
The patient loves her new look and appears entirely natural.
Facelift Before and After Patient 2:
This 57-year-old patient sent us her own before and after photos just 6 months after a revision facelift. She previously had a SMAS facelift with another surgeon and was unhappy with the results.
TTo reverse her face’s droopiness, Dr. Jacono performed a deep-plane facelift alongside a neck lift and platysmaplasty. These procedures rejuvenated her lower face, neck, and jawline. Dr. Jacono also performed a temporal lateral lift to open her eyes, and a blepharoplasty to smooth her eyelid wrinkles. Lastly, he performed a lip lift, shortening the distance between her upper lip and the bottom of her nose.
