Our Reviews

"Been with Dr Jansen for four years. He was a great dr to have on my side."



"After reading others’ very positive reviews, I reached out to Jansen Plastic Surgery for the DIEP Flap surgery. It was the best decision I made throughout my journey following a cancer diagnosis. Dr. Jansen is talented, detail oriented, and kind. His clam demeanor was very reassuring in what was a very scary time for me. His team in the office is professional and just as caring. I am a year out from surgery without any complications doing all the activities I love. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results. Thank you Dr. Jansen!"



"I had such a seamless experience with Dr. Jansen and his staff (Angie is phenomenal). I recently underwent liposuction and a breast augmentation with silicone implants done at Crescent City Surgical Center in Metairie (5 stars on the place, too). My recovery has been going well and my results are EXACTLY what I had hoped for. Dr. Jansen listened to all of my concerns and addressed them PERFECTLY. I am thrilled, to say the least. THANK YOU for giving me my body back after kids!!"



"I had gender affirming top surgery (chest masculinization) with Dr. Jansen. He was kind and pragmatic about my desires and possible results. I know there's a large variance in potential outcomes, but i feel like he did a superb job overall, and i couldn't be happier. His staff is also very kind, and i felt like the experience was overall affirming and positive. "



"I first saw Dr Jansen to replace breast implants from 30 years due to Cancer. He was kind,and explained the process .His staff was great. His work was the best decision I made. I am very pleased with the outcome. I recommend him."
