Meet Dr. Steven R. Jacobson
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Skilled, Innovative, and Patient-Centered Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Steven R. Jacobson’s skills as a plastic surgeon became quite apparent while training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. A lifelong Minnesota native, Dr. Jacobson earned his medical degree at the University of Minnesota before taking a surgical residency position at Mayo. Even among the best of the best he was an outlier, winning a prestigious Foundation Scholar fellowship to train in Australia under Dr. Bryan Mendelson, the world’s leading authority on facial anatomy.
That’s where Dr. Jacobson mastered minimally invasive facelifts, and the experience inspired him to develop his own natural skills in facial rejuvenation, aesthetic, and reconstructive breast and body surgery. Soon after, Dr. Jacobson accepted a staff position at Mayo where he taught and practiced as a plastic surgeon until 2016. During that time, he has become internationally known for his technique and results.
What really sets Dr. Jacobson apart is his patient-centered approach. His patients truly appreciate how he takes the time to listen to their concerns and understand their needs. During his tenure at Mayo, Dr. Jacobson was the only plastic surgeon to win the Karis Award recognizing exemplary patient care.
His patient-centered method has also pushed him to develop innovative techniques using progressive technology to significantly reduce complications and speed recovery time. Dr. Jacobson’s simplified approach to plastic surgery is to achieve the best result with the fewest possible side effects.
Other plastic surgeons around the world are now adopting his techniques. As with all new technology, someone needs to discover how to use those tools in a real-world setting and then pass that knowledge along. Dr. Jacobson is recognized as one of those leaders. Through research and his day-to-day practice, he has become a trailblazer, taking full advantage of today’s cutting-edge advances. Dr. Jacobson has been asked to speak in 20 different states and 10 countries around the world to share his insights and best practices.
Dr. Jacobson is Board certified in both general and plastic surgery, and is the current president of the Minnesota Society of Plastic Surgeons as well as a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He has served as principal investigator in multiple studies and published articles in leading medical journals including: Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Aesthetic Surgery Journal, American Journal of Surgery, World Journal of Surgery, The Breast Journal, and Clinics in Plastic Surgery.
Despite offers from around the country, Dr. Jacobson and his beautiful wife Dyan chose to remain in Minnesota where they are raising their four active children. His move to private practice will allow him to simplify and focus more on patients and their outcomes, which is his passion.
