Meet Dr. Jacobson

He practiced in New York for eight years; combining both private practice and academic medicine (Columbia University and Mt. Sinai Schools of Medicine). As Director of the Division of Head and Neck Surgery, Trauma, and Reconstructive surgery, Dr. Jacobson has trained many medical students and resident physicians. Moving to Palm Beach in 1989 and establishing the Physicians Skin Care Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Jacobson realized the fulfillment of his life’s professional dream.
Dr. Jacobson combines his deep knowledge of surgical anatomy and skills with his extensive clinical experience to forge the concept of Minimally Invasive Facial Plastic Surgery. Thanks to him our center was the first in Florida and one of the first worldwide where these principles were incorporated into new techniques which are now the mainstay of plastic surgery protocols. These procedures achieve excellent results with no general anesthesia. They are usually done through small incisions around the scalp, mouth and ear canals. Minimal incision surgery leads to rapid healing with down times of days instead of weeks. Furthermore, the patients usually experience minimal pain and bruising. Dr Jacobson is highly respected in the community for his extreme integrity, for being a tireless advocate for his patients as well as a very skillful surgeon. Dr. Jacobson is widely published in textbooks and medical journals, and has been an invited lecturer and teacher both nationally and internationally.
