“I don’t remember exactly when, but Steven Meisel had recommended a doctor named Dr. Brandt who was, of course, pretty famous and everybody knew,” he explained.

He also discussed his path to a facelift, after starting with “Botox and some fillers.”

“I don’t like the way guys looked when they were, like, very Botox’d and even with the filler, it seemed like it was just becoming too much. So I started doing thread lifts to hold up my jowls and the area of my face where the skin was sagging. But I found that those were only effective for a very short period of time. The fillers were too heavy and the threads didn’t really hold anything up anymore,” he explained.

Marc Jacobs also discussed his reasoning for transparency throughout the process.

“I mean, there have been so many things that I’ve been transparent about,” he continued.

“Like, once when I went to an event with a baseball cap, and people asked me, ‘Why are you wearing a baseball cap?’ And I said, ‘Well, I just had a hair transplant.’ People were amused and amazed that I answered,” he said.

“I’m 58 years old. I don’t think I look bad for 58 years old. I didn’t feel like I had to do this, but I feel like all of these conversations around aging or around plastic surgery are just like any other conversations to me. The problem comes with the shame around them. And I don’t want to live my life with shame, you know?”

“I find that the way I do that is by being open, transparent, and honest about things. Yes, I’m vain. I find there is no shame in being vain. I find there’s no shame in wanting attention. I find there’s no shame in getting dressed up and showing off a look. You know what I mean? Those are some of the things that give me pleasure. Self-care on every level, whether it’s spiritual self-care or meditation, or whether it’s getting my hair dyed and cut, or spending two hours at JINSoon getting my nails done…those are all part of wellness for me. External and internal wellness are really important. I say the same thing about all of it, which is that the better I feel about myself, the better I’m able to be to others,” he concluded.

The news comes just after he recently documented his recovery from a facelift with a photo of himself in an oxygen tank.
