Jennifer Walden is a leading plastic surgeon based in Austin, Texas. Walden’s star is ever rising in the plastic surgery field with her frequent media commentary and contribution to academia. Presently, Walden runs her private practice, Jennifer L. Walden, MD, PLLC & Walden Cosmetic Surgery, and Laser Center, based in Austin. At her medical facility, Walden is leveraging on her eight years of experience to assist people in need of cosmetic surgery particularly breast augmentations, facelifts, eyelid lifts, and rhinoplasties. She is also an expert in liposuction and non-surgical procedure such as Botox injection and soft tissue fillers.
Being a surgeon is a great achievement but being a woman plastic surgeon is a huge accomplishment; Walden knows this. America has over 8000 board-certified cosmetic surgeons, but barely 800 of them are female. Also, of the less than 800 women cosmetic surgeons, a few of them, including Walden, are members of American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The society is the most revered professional body for certified cosmetic surgeons.
As a woman plastic surgeon who has had some plastic surgery procedures performed on her, Walden has empathy for females in need of plastic surgery. Walden explains that women go for plastic surgery because of genuine reasons. For example, after birth, some parts of a woman’s body may become saggy; plastic surgery will restore the saggy parts helping ladies to regain confidence. Walden stresses that many women in search of plastic surgery are unpleased with males’ preconceived notions of the perfect female body.
Walden attended the University of Texas where she pursued medicine. She was an exceptional student who came second in her class. Walden then attended an esthetic surgery fellowship at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital. Immediately she graduated, Walden moved to New York where she practiced cosmetic surgery for over seven years before moving to her home state—Texas—with her two boys.
