Dr. Jacono was featured in Departures Magazine discussing Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation procedures in New York, NY
Dr. Jacono: The Upper East Side’s Top Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Jacono is among New York City’s most sought-after facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Just ask Departures Magazine, which featured him as one of the top attractions of the Upper East Side.
The article, by Alexandra Wolfe, covers all manner of things to do in New York’s glitziest neighborhood. On a list that includes spas, bars, and iconic restaurants, a visit to Dr. Jacono’s office may seem to be out of place. But this world-renowned plastic surgeon has become a tourist attraction of his own.
Dr. Jacono is a physician of rare caliber. His technical skill, bedside manner, and innovative approaches are unmatched. Peers and patients consider him the best facelift surgeon in the country, if not the world. It is no surprise, then, that people from around the globe flock to his practice for the best anti-aging solutions.
“I’m lucky enough to have a practice that welcomes people from all over the world,” says Dr. Jacono. “I think this is because my techniques are some of the most advanced and successful available. There aren’t many facial plastic surgeons who specialize in minimally invasive surgeries that not only work but look natural. My patients are attracted by what they can’t find elsewhere.”
Dr. Jacono is particularly renowned for his Extended Deep-Plane Facelift. The procedure improves upon the traditional and SMAS facelift techniques. These more ordinary approaches separate the skin from its underlying muscle and pull tissue horizontally. Dr. Jacono’s technique, on the other hand, releases key ligaments and lifts skin and muscle as a single unit. The framework is then lifted vertically, which smooths wrinkles and lines.
The Extended Deep-Plane Facelift offers the most natural-looking results possible. In fact, patients who undergo the procedure report that friends and family can’t tell they’ve had work done. In simpler terms, they look just like themselves, but 15 to 20 years younger.
“The biggest advantage of my approach is that it doesn’t sacrifice quality for technique,” continues Dr. Jacono. “In some cases, surgeons prefer to stick to what they know at the expense of the result. I never do this. To me, the goal is a wonderful aesthetic, and that is what guides my surgical choices.”
Facial Rejuvenation and Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation
As gifted as Dr. Jacono is as a facelift surgeon, he is also skilled at a host of other cosmetic procedures. These include rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, neck lift, and even chin and cheek implants.
“I’m best known for my innovative approach to facelifting, but it also gives me great pleasure to perform other procedures. Being able to give my patients variety is what sets me apart from the typical plastic surgeon.”
Among Dr. Jacono’s most popular offerings is a non-surgical lip augmentation procedure called “French Lips.” This treatment combines different injectables to sculpt the lips. Usually, Dr. Jacono uses Restylane or Juvéderm, hyaluronic acid fillers that add volume. He injects these compounds in such a way that the central portion of the upper lip appears pouty; the inside of the lip is rolled out.
“This kind of stylistic touch is seen in many models,” says Dr. Jacono. “Those sorts of people have unique facial symmetry that includes larger, poutier lips. Angelina Jolie is a perfect example of this. Her lips are wonderfully plump.”
Dr. Jacono pioneered the French Lips technique and published a hallmark article on customizing lip injections in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery. He has proven that it is possible to create carefully sculpted lips without the need for invasive surgery.
