Jana K. Rasmussen, M.D., FACS
"For a Womans Touch in Plastic Surgery". Our office motto is "An educated patient is a happy patient." We strive to inform you fully of your options, including limitations, potential risks, and anticipated outcome. Our personal and professional commitment is to provide exceptional individualized care that will improve the health and well being of our patients. We accomplish this by providing personalized, affordable excellence in Plastic Surgery.
Although Dr. Rasmussen maintains a "general" plastic surgery practice, she has special interests in certain areas of plastic surgery including skin care and facial rejuvenation, breast surgery, both cosmetic and reconstructive, and body contouring.
Our office offers several options to achieve younger, healthier skin, to soften the appearance of fine facial wrinkles and reduce pigmentation irregularities. In-office services include supervised skin care programs, micropeels, MegaPeel Microdermabrasion, collagen and other injectable fillers, and BOTOX injections. More aggressive out-patient services include skin resurfacing techniques such as the pulsed carbon dioxide laser. She also performs other facial cosmetic procedures including facelift, browlift and eyelid surgery.
As a woman, Dr. Rasmussen understands the personal nature of a womans decision to have breast surgery. Whether a woman chooses breast surgery to reduce the discomfort associated with large breasts, implants to better balance the body, breast lifting to restore a more youthful shape, or reconstruction after a mastectomy to aid in her rehabilitation from breast cancer, Dr. Rasmussen utilizes her extensive experience to educate patients and promote realistic expectations.
She also has considerable expertise and experience in the area of body contouring, such as body sculpturing, liposuction and abdominoplasty. Dr. Rasmussen also offers endermologie, a non invasive body contouring treatment patented in Paris, France in 1982. Endermologie goes beyond traditional treatments to sculpt your figure by improving your skins tone and condition, and reducing the dimpling and "orange peel" texture known as cellulite.
By paying close attention to your individual needs, Dr. Rasmussen can ensure natural, personalized results.

During your first visit with Dr. Rasmussen, she will evaluate your complaint or medical problem, review your medical history, examine the appropriate body area, discuss the diagnosis, and recommend options for treatment. The goals, anticipated outcome, limitations, and potential risks will also be discussed. Generally, no definitive treatment is performed during this consult, but it is a time to provide information and answer any questions you may have. A loved one is encouraged to be present. If surgical treatment is decided upon, scheduling of surgery will be arranged and preoperative instructions will be given. If you are seeing Dr. Rasmussen for a cosmetic consultation, you may view educational video tapes during your visit. She does not expect you to schedule surgery at the time of the consult; rather she prefers that you take time to consider your options and then return for a second visit, should you decide to proceed with surgery. Second opinions are encouraged to allow you to make the decision thats right for you.
