Dr. Jennifer Walden grew up in Austin, Texas, where she also took her education. She graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Biology, which she then followed up with a Medical Degree at the University of Texas. She finished top of her class which secured her a fellowship to practice in the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital. After finishing her fellowship, she later moved to the City of New York which is where she specialized in plastic surgery and more specifically cosmetic surgery.
Her passion for her work made her take part in a research on the impact of using silicone for breast implants. Dr. Jennifer Walden often says that seeing a happy smile on her patients’ faces gives her more satisfaction than even the salary she earns. Her motivation to take part is cosmetic surgery was partly a mission where she wanted to improve the quality of life of women that were not confident about their looks by giving them the best face lift that she could.
Dr. Walden admits that working as a woman in a male dominated field has its own challenges. She is however welcoming to the challenges which motivate her to work hard. Her efforts have often been recognized as in 2015, she was voted to be among the top plastic surgeons in the United States.
In 2010, Dr. Walden got twin baby boys which prompted her to relocate her services from New York to Texas. She therefore put up a satellite cosmetic surgery center in Austin as she did not expect to have many clients as compared to New York. She was surprised to get booked for several procedures even before she had completely settled down in Texas.
Dr. Jennifer Walden has been involved in the authoring of the book Aesthetic Plastic Surgery which gives an overview of what plastic surgery involves in terms of the cost of getting a plastic surgery, the risks involved, and a detailed procedure of how cosmetic plastic surgery is done. Dr. Walden has also been involved in publishing of several journal both solely and in conjunction with other plastic surgeons.
