Dr. Jennifer Walden has been practicing plastic surgery for eight years. She grew up in Austin, Texas, where she graduated as the salutatorian of her class from the University of Texas Medical Brand at Galveston. She completed her aesthetic surgery fellowship at a Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital in Manhattan. While living in New York, she built a successful plastic surgery practice before deciding to make the move back to Austin in 2011. Aside from practicing medicine and performing surgeries, she is the co-author of a book called Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Walden focuses primarily on cosmetic surgery which includes breast augmentations, face-lifts, nose jobs and eyelid lifts. In a world where there are mostly plastic surgeon males, she has stood out in the crowd to help others feel better about themselves. She is among approximately 8,000 board certified surgeons with only 851 of them being women. Dr. Jennifer Walden is also a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery which is known as the leading professional business organization for board certified surgeries. She feels that a valid reason why there more be more male surgeons is because women tend to start families earlier in life and many may not want to delay that part of their life. She has proven herself as one of the leading surgeons in the industry as a woman and is proud to help give others the confidence that they so desperately desire. As a woman, doctor and mother she fully understands the changes that our bodies go through. Many want surgery because they are embarrassed or self-conscious of certain parts of their body. Dr. Walden has empathy for her patients and strives to make them more confident and comfortable in their skin.
Moving from New York to Texas has definitely been a change. In fact, she had to analyze whether her business would become successful because the atmosphere is quite different. She was very pleased to find that the community of plastic surgeon took very well to the practice and she already has appointments booked prior to the office even opening. She moved back to be closer to her family as she is raising two twin boys. The experience to run her own practice in her hometown and raise her boys close to family has been a positive decision. She looks forward to expanding her businesses within the community and help other women feel empowered and confident.
