Marc Jacobs has debuted his new look after revealing he got a facelift from celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacono earlier this week.
The fashion designer, 58, showed off a strong jaw, lifted browline and higher cheekbones as he posed for an Instagram shot from inside a hyperbaric oxygen trailer meant to help him speed up healing.
‘Getting my oxygen on,’ Jacobs captioned the shot, where he gave a shout out to company Hyperbaric Medical Solutions in the caption.

Marc’s included some commentary in his tags as well, writing: ‘#doctorsorders #feeltheheal #yesIamokay #he’sgotthatBenjaminButtons #roadtorecovery.’
The scene looked like something from science fiction as Jacobs laid down inside a glass tube, clad in patient scrubs and holding a bottle of water.
According to Hyperbaric Medical Solutions‘ website Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy ‘is an all-natural, non-invasive treatment where a patient simply breathes 100% medical-grade oxygen at an increased atmospheric pressure.’
‘HBOT can increase the oxygen concentration in the body by up to 1,200% —this gives it the potential to lead to extraordinary health benefits.’
The high-tech looking healing strategy is more accessible than it appears. Oxygen therapy can be covered by insurance, and without coverages costs can range between $250 to $450 a session.
Famous friends flocked to the comment section to compliment Marc’s makeover.

Photographer/longtime personal assistant Nicolas Newbold called his friend ‘Benjamin Button’ while drag queen Miss Fame said ‘I love’ with fire emojis.
Makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi offered hearts and applause through emojis.
Jacobs first revealed that he underwent a facelift while proudly sharing a photo of bandages wrapped around his head post-surgery on Wednesday.
The designer posted a selfie that he snapped at his doctor’s office which he captioned: ‘Yesterday,’ along with the hashtags: ‘#f*ckgravity,’ ‘#livelovelift,’ and ‘#DrJacono’ — a reference to celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacono.

The image shows layers of white gauze wrapped around his head and drainage bags filled with blood and fluid on each side of his ears. He is wearing a face mask, leaving only his brows and eyes visible to the camera.
Jacobs never explicitly detailed what type of lift he had, but Dr. Jacono specializes in facial plastic surgery and is known for his mini face lifts.
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 totaled $75,000.
It’s unclear how much Jacobs paid for his surgery, but he likely spent around $50,000 as Dr. Jacono favors the deep plane method.

‘The deep plane facelift is $50,000 — it’s more expensive than the average facelift, but there is value in it because you look youthful and natural,’ Dr. Jacono told Bravo in 2019. ‘It also lasts longer than a traditional SMAS facelift.
‘I was trained to do a more traditional facelift, that’s what almost all surgeons perform, but it doesn’t last as long,’ he explained. ‘A deep plane facelift should last 12-15 years and a SMAS facelift is half as long, on average. In my experience, when I was performing SMAS facelifts, they would look droopy at a quicker pace.’
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 plenty of love from the fashion community, including Younger actress Debi Mazar, who starred in his eponymous label’s Fall 2015 campaign.
‘Congrats!’ she wrote, adding three clapping hands emoji.

Real Housewives of New York City star Leah McSweeney commented ‘MAJ,’ while Phillip Picardi, the former editor-in-chief of Out Magazine, said: ‘Can’t wait for the reveal!’
Jacobs, who is known for his youthful appearance and ripped physique, is no stranger to physical transformation. Just two years shy of his 60th birthday, he looks completely different than he did as a young designer.
Back in the 1990s, the New York native began his fashion career by designing for sportswear label Perry Ellis. While he did not show off his body in those days, even under clothes he appeared visibly less muscular than he is now, and his tattoos were not yet apparent.
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 broody stare, and baggy clothes — a far cry from his trim, polished look now.
‘I never took care of my appearance. I was like, “Who cares? 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 and to exercise every day.
The designer, who had rarely set foot in a gym, scrubbed up, began sporting a buzz cut and grew out his stubble, marking the beginning of his transformation into how he looks today.
Jacobs has been talking about getting plastic surgery for years, telling GQ in 2008 that he was open to it.
‘I look at Tom [Ford] and he looks great. Whatever he’s doing works for him,’ he said. ‘And I don’t know if he does anything, but I’m not opposed. Whatever makes me feel good, I want more of.’
He added that he had already gone under the knife to thicken the bridge of his nose after running into a glass door.
‘It got so swollen here,’ he said, ‘and I thought, “This is so hot.”‘
