New Office, New Look
Dr. Jacono, world-renowned facial plastic, and reconstructive surgeon, recently opened a new office for operations. The space, located on 630 Park Avenue in New York City, was a passion project since 2015.
Before, Dr. Jacono had been operating out of his surgical center in Great Neck, on the Gold Coast of Long Island. However, he thought that, just like his patients, his business could benefit from a bit of a facelift.
“I’ve seen a lot more cosmetic surgeons collaborate with interior designers these days,” says Dr. Jacono. “So, I did just that. There were a lot of reasons for this, but for me, it was to cater to the right clientele. For the most part, cosmetic surgery is an elective, luxury item for the well-heeled customer with disposable income. The average Park Avenue patient is used to a well-appointed home, so giving them a similar office environment would hopefully offer a sense of real comfort.”
Who Are Dr. Jacono’s Clients?
These days, Dr. Jacono’s patients tend to be high-profile. Thanks to his unmatched technical skill, he has become trusted worldwide.
“Generally speaking, my patients range from socialites and heiresses to corporate executives and actresses. Other patients come from foreign countries and different coasts and make a vacation out of their New York stays. I feel incredibly excited and lucky to have such a varied clientele.”
What Is Dr. Jacono’s Expertise?
As a dual-board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Jacono is skilled in a variety of techniques. These include rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, neck lift, and even implant work. He is also an expert in non-invasive techniques, like laser resurfacing and filler injections.
Above all, however, he is lauded for his innovative approach to the facelift.
“I am best known for my minimally invasive facelift techniques. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world lecturing on this topic.”
The most comprehensive of these techniques is the Extended Deep Plane Facelift. More traditional methods separate skin and muscle and pull the face too taut. Dr. Jacono, on the other hand, releases ligaments and keeps muscle and skin together as a unit. He then repositions this tissue vertically. The result is a smooth, natural-looking face that does not look tight or pulled.
Hiring an Interior Decorator
Dr. Jacono prides himself on being a master aesthetician. He is also extremely interested in art, fashion, and technology. However, he realized early on that he needed help from a professional to make his new office look perfect.
“In 2015, I partnered with Mary Evans, an architect at Casals-Evans Design Group. She is an expert in interior design and space planning, and she has a great sense of what looks good and what doesn’t. It was important for me, from an efficiency perspective, to have everything under one roof. So, in order to bring my vision to life, we completely gutted the maisonette and built it from scratch. This means that the walls, the windows, and everything else in the space are new. The equipment is also cutting-edge. This is the probably most updated office and surgery center out there right now.”
After two years of work, Dr. Jacono’s new office at 630 Park Avenue was officially unveiled in November 2017.
What Is the Office’s Aesthetic?
Dr. Jacono wanted to make the most of the building in which the office is located. For this reason, he decided not only to enhance its many details but to invest in a private art collection.
“My goal was to have a sophisticated, luxurious space that showcased the building’s rich prewar history. The entirely custom-built center includes original marble inlay and raw silk appointments. There is also a robust art collection featuring pieces from Damien Hirst and Fabio Modica. I also placed personal photographs from my international mission work and of memories with my children on the walls.”
What Are Dr. Jacono’s Favorite Accents?
Dr. Jacono loves the space as a whole, and he has difficulty picking one particular detail as his favorite. That said, he is especially fond of one accent.
“In my opinion, the highlight of the space is on the ceiling: an 18-karat gold dome hallway. The gilded dome reminds me of the Plafond de la Galerie d’Apollon at the Louvre in Paris. My recreation is not as impressive, but it still looks gorgeous.”
