Marc Jacobs has unveiled his new look after getting a facelift earlier this week from famed plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacobo.
The fashion designer, 58, showed off a strong jawline and raised forehead as he posed for an Instagram shot from a hyperbaric oxygen trailer meant to help him speed up healing.
“I’m getting oxygen,” Jacobs wrote at the shot, yelling the Hyperbaric Medical Solutions company in the caption.

Marc also included some comments in his tags, writing: ‘#doctorsorders #feeltheheal #yesIamokay #he’sgotthatBenjaminButtons #roadtorecovery.’
The scene looked like something out of science fiction when Jacobs lay down in a glass tube, wearing patient scrubs and holding a bottle of water.
The high-tech-looking healing strategy varies in cost, but without insurance, a single session generally ranges between $250 and $450.
Jacobs first revealed that he had undergone a facelift as he proudly shared a photo of bandages wrapped around his head after surgery on Wednesday.
The designer posted a selfie he took in his doctor’s office, which he captioned “Yesterday,” along with the hashtags: “#f*ckgravity,” “#livelovelift” and “#DrJacono” — a reference to the famous plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacobo.

The image shows layers of white gauze wrapped around his head and drainage sacs filled with blood and fluid on each side of his ears. He wears a face mask, leaving only his eyebrows and eyes visible to the camera.
Jacobs never explicitly stated what type of elevator he had, but Dr. Jacono specializes in facial plastic surgery and is known for his mini facelifts.
The New York-based surgeon previously worked his magic on Botched doctor Paul Nassif and Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan, who both had him perform their facelifts.
Nassif’s “deep plane facelift” cost a whopping $50,000, while Morgan’s face and neck lift cost $75,000.
It’s unclear how much Jacobs paid for his surgery, but he probably spent about $50,000 as Dr. Jacono prefers the deep plane method.

“The deep plane facelift costs $50,000 — it’s more expensive than the average facelift, but there’s value in it because you look youthful and natural,” Dr. jacono. Bravo in 2019. ‘Moreover, it lasts longer than a traditional SMAS facelift.
“I’ve been trained to do a more traditional facelift, almost all surgeons do, but it doesn’t take that long,” he explains. ‘A deep plane facelift should take 12-15 years and an SMAS facelift is on average half as long. In my experience, when I did SMAS facelifts, they looked droopy at a faster rate.”
Jacobs, who has been plagued by plastic surgery rumors for years, was candid about his decision to go under the knife when he shared his latest post with his 1.6 million followers.
He received a lot of love from the fashion community, including younger actress Debi Mazar, who starred in his label’s fall 2015 campaign.
‘Congrats!’ she wrote, adding three clapping hands.

Real Housewives of New York City star Leah McSweeney responded “MAJ,” while Phillip Picardi, the former editor of Out Magazine, said, “Can’t wait for the reveal!”
Known for his youthful appearance and ripped physique, Jacobs is no stranger to physical transformation. Just two years before his 60th birthday, he looks very different from being a young designer.
In the 1990s, the New York native began his fashion career designing for sportswear label Perry Ellis. Although he didn’t flaunt his body at the time, even under clothing he seemed visibly less muscular than he is now, and his tattoos were not yet visible.
In 1992 Jacobs showed his ‘grunge’ collection for the label. To reflect the times, as well as his collection, he sported long, shaggy hair, a somber look, and baggy clothes—a far cry from his sleek, polished look now.
‘I never paid attention to my appearance. I was like, “What the heck? I’m in the studio 16 hours a day and nobody sees me,” he recalled in a 2010 interview with Harper’s Bazaar.

He went from 21 percent to 5 percent body fat by following the advice of a nutritionist, who told him to cut out caffeine, sugar, white flour and dairy products and exercise every day.
Rarely set foot in a gym, the designer scrubbed himself clean, started wearing a buzz cut and grew out his stubble, marking the beginning of his transformation into what he looks like today.
Jacobs has been talking about getting plastic surgery for years, telling GQ in 2008 that he was open to it.
‘I’m looking at Tom’ [Ford] and he looks great. Whatever he does, it works for him,’ he said. “And I don’t know if he’s doing anything, but I’m not against it. I want more of what I feel good about.’
He added that he had already gone under the knife to thicken the bridge of his nose after bumping into a glass door.
“It’s so swollen in here,” he said, “and I thought, ‘This is so hot.’
