Plastic surgeon to the stars

A profile of “one of the most famous plastic surgeons in history”, and the trail of lawsuits against him:

Few doctors can boast a résumé quite as impressive as Jacobs’s. After growing up in Queens and Long Island, Jacobs attended SUNY Albany and got his medical degree from McGill University. He did his residency at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center, where he says he’d already amassed a large patient following before setting up a private practice in 1995. With aggressive use of Internet marketing, his patient list grew worldwide by the late ’90s, and he became particularly renowned among Austrian women. He’s done work on four Playboy Playmates and countless Playboy models, who have autographed copies of their covers for him to display at his Upper East Side office. Before he sold it to cover his legal expenses, his old Porsche boasted the license plate “BUNNYMAKR.”
