5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Jana Cole is the one to go to for a beautiful breast augmentation here in Alaska. She is very informative and does what the patient asks even if it is not her own personal preference. I would refer anyone interested in the procedure to her in a heartbeat.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Overall, I'm extremely pleased with my doctor. She seems very experienced and knowledgeable, and I'm very happy with my results and with the quality of care I received. One thing is that all of my appointments with her have been very quick - she gets in and gets things done, not a lot of waiting around or extra talking (in fact, her and her staff are so efficient that I was actually done with my first post-op appointment before it was even scheduled to start. There's not much waiting around in that office!). She seems very willing to answer questions, but doesn't necessarily ask for a lot of input. She told me how the surgery would go, and what size she thought I would be afterward. There was no discussion about what I might have wanted - I was not invited to bring in pictures or an example of what bra I'd like to fit into. This is something that doesn't bother me - like I said, I'm very happy with my results - but someone who wants a little more control over the process might have been frustrated by her approach. I decided to trust in her judgement and experience, and was not disappointed, but this won't work for everyone. Part of my experience may have been because I was having a medically recommended, insurance covered, breast reduction, and not a completely cosmetic procedure that I was going to be mostly paying for out of pocket. She may be more communicative with other patients, or this may just be her style. It may also be that I didn't really ask questions or put myself forward - since I pretty much decided that I wanted the surgery, period, and wasn't too concerned about the details. Overall though, I was very pleased with not only her, but also all of the other staff that I met with during the process. Everyone was polite and friendly, and several people called my home after the surgery to ask how I was doing. I also was very impressed with the staff at the Alaska Surgery Center, where my surgery was performed.

Dr. Cole is a passionate surgeon. Her and her team are positive, encouraging, and are always open to any questions you have. She was knowledgable and made such an uncomfortable subject easy to talk about. Dr. Cole seemed excited to work with me and only said nice things about my breasts. She is definitely the go to doctor at Plastic Surgeons of Alaska. They do a great job of taking care of you.

The practice overall has been very informative and accommodating to my questions. Dr. Cole, while efficient in her patient volume hasn't let her welcoming vibe wear off and has made sure to allow you to feel comfortable with questions and concerns. I haven't had a bad experience yet and I am hoping this trend continues through to surgery and post ops. **Post op*** I've only seen her at the first post op. Second post op was one of the assistants and the next appt will be as well. That is slightly odd to me, but I'm sure if I voiced this, I would be able to speak to her. Hoping at 1 month I will be able to see Dr. Cole for progress
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
Dr. Cole is a good surgeon. I am marking 4 stars only because she is too quick sometimes. She needs to spend a bit more time with the patient. She was super quick after the surgery as well. I did not feel well on the medication, however, the surgery went great and my breasts looked wonderful. Looking forward to see how scars will turn out. so far I am super happy!
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Very informative, understanding, & patient. I work in the medical field; however, there is a lot of emotional garbage involved for me. I didn't expect it to come out quite the way it did. She didn't miss a beat, was empathetic, but didn't baby me! Thank you! Love love love her!!!
I had a great consultation with Dr Cole. She was knowledgeable and I felt her confidence in my future results... Initially I was only going to do the lift with silicone implants and just asked her thoughts on the belly-frankly she hit the nail in the head- why do one and not the other. She suggested a smaller implant since I was going to get the TT and it would make my waist look smaller- she suggested 300-400cc under the muscle... I will decide by pre-op on the size. Tentatively thinking 375cc because I have a fair amount of tissue still...
3 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
The plastic surgeons in Alaska are slim pickings. I thought Dr. Cole did an excellent job with the augmentation however, I also felt that she should have respected my request for the larger size. Just don't tell her to use her judgement or you will walk out of there with what you didn't want or weren't expecting. It was a good lesson learned

Dr. Cole seems friendly and knowledgeable. I asked many questions about all the risks the incision types, the different types of implants and profiles, how the lift works etc and she answered them all to the best of her knowledge. She does talk a little fast but it's cute.
