The New York Times cites Dr. Jacono as one of the best facial plastic surgeons in New York, if not the world.
New York’s Top Aesthetic Surgeon: Dr. Andrew Jacono
Dr. Jacono has been selected, by peers and the New York Times, as one of the state’s Super Doctors. He specializes in facial cosmetic and plastic surgery. He alters aesthetic appearances and offers life-altering functional changes to domestic violence victims and those born with facial deformities.
The Super Doctors list is peer-created and upheld. Physicians are asked to nominate physicians who they themselves would choose when seeking medical care. In this sense, the list is a very personal one that takes into account not only the technical ability but bedside manner and ease of patient experience.
Once physicians make their selections, nominees are evaluated on a number of factors. These include disciplinary history, professional achievements, and peer recognition. Doctors with the highest total score from surveys, research, and peer review panels are then selected for the Super Doctors list.
Voted Super Doctor
Dr. Jacono has been consistently nominated for the Super Doctors list. He is considered by peers and patients to be one of the best facial plastic surgeons in the country, if not the world. This is a grand distinction, especially for a doctor based in New York, where there is a very high concentration of cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists.
As impressive as he is as a surgeon, Dr. Jacono is also an accomplished scientist. He is the assistant clinical professor at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The head of facial plastic surgery at North Shore University Hospital, and fellowship director for the Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He has been published widely in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal and Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery. He has also been featured on Good Morning America, Anderson Cooper 360, and CNN.
“Truly honored and humbled to be a nominee on the Super Doctors list,” says Dr. Jacono. “I pride myself on providing the best care to my patients, and on giving them the results they most desire. And I think that what sets me apart is my attention to detail and innovative techniques that few other doctors employ.”
What, Really, Sets Dr. Jacono Apart From the Rest?
A metropolis filled with celebrities, influencers, and beautiful people, New York also happens to be a hotspot for cosmetic surgery. Alongside this extremely high demand comes a need for the best and brightest in aesthetic medicine.
Dr. Jacono is the cream of this already flourishing crop due to a number of factors, including his excellent bedside manner and extreme attention to detail.
“The simple truth is that quality supersedes everything,” says Dr. Jacono. “The goal of every surgeon should be to provide the best possible results, adhering exactly to what the patient wants. For this reason, client-doctor communication is incredibly important. It also builds genuine connection, which is essential for an exceptional outcome.”
What perhaps distinguishes Dr. Jacono the most, however, are his innovative surgical techniques, namely the Extended Deep Plane Facelift. He pioneered, perfected, and mastered this procedure over the course of his career.
Dr. Jacono’s Facelift Technique
The deep-plane facelift improves upon more traditional facelift methods. Older procedures separate the skin from muscle and pull the facial framework taut. More often than not, this creates a pulled, overly tight look that appears altogether unnatural. Celebrity plastic surgical disasters are a testament to the ineffectiveness of these techniques.
Dissatisfied with the results of traditional facelifts, Dr. Jacono set out to develop a new technique that would leave patients looking just like themselves, but 15 to 20 years younger. The Extended Deep-Plane Facelift Technique was born from this desire.
Instead of separating the skin from underlying muscle tissue, Dr. Jacono keeps the skin and muscle together as a single unit. He then releases key ligaments, which allow for tension-free movement of facial structures. Lastly, he repositions everything at a vertical rather than horizontal angle. This leaves patients looking smooth, rejuvenated, and beautiful, eliminating wrinkles and jowls and rarely causing unnatural tightness.
Teaching His Facelifting Method
Dr. Jacono regularly lectures on his Extended Deep-Plane Facelift at national and international symposia. He believes that it is incredibly important to share scientific knowledge with peers so that they may also provide clients with cutting-edge care.
That said, the Extended Deep-Plane Facelift is an incredibly difficult procedure to learn, let alone master. For this reason, the vast majority of facelift surgeons, even those who have been taught the technique, choose not to use it in practice. Only physicians with specialized training, like Dr. Jacono, offer deep-plane facelift services to their patients.
“My Extended Deep-Plane Facelift is at the cutting edge of modern cosmetic surgical techniques,” says Dr. Jacono. “It provides results that are dramatic, beautiful, and semi-permanent. It aims to improve upon older facelift techniques that are less effective. The best part is that it is extremely safe to perform—it almost never causes facial nerve injuries or long-term complications. Other facelifting techniques don’t boast the same statistics.”
