Marc Jacobs shares a selfie of his new face just 'three days after' undergoing a facelift

Marc Jacobs showed off the incredible results of his facelift, just 'three days after' undergoing surgery to say get rid of his 'turkey neck and jowls.'

While acknowledging he still has 'some' bruising and swelling in his latest post's hashtags, the 58-year-old star wrote that he was feeling rejuvenated and restored.

'Three days after. Ready for lewks. Thank you @drjacono,' he captioned the shot, which showed him in his living room while rocking a trench coat.

Earlier this week, the fashion designer first debuted his new look after his recent procedure from celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacono. 

In an earlier Instagram snap from inside a hyperbaric oxygen trailer meant to help him speed up healing, Jacobs put his strong jaw, lifted browline and higher cheekbones on full display for his 1.6 million followers to check out.

'Getting my oxygen on,' Jacobs captioned the shot, where he gave a shout out to company Hyperbaric Medical Solutions in the caption on Friday.

Marc also 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.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell posted a wide-eyed emoji saying:  'Happy safe Healing can't wait to see the unveiling.'

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna called her pal: 'Fresh as a f***ing daisy.'

Big money: Dr. Jacono (pictured) charges $50,000  for his 'deep plane facelifts,' which he claims last longer than traditional facelifts. It's unclear how much Jacobs' facelift cost 

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 confirmed he had a deep plane facelift. 

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.

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.  

Youthful: Jacobs already looked just as young as his 40-year-old husband, Charly 'Char' Defrancesco. The couple is pictured in 2019

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.
