Aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden grew up in Austin, Texas. After a successful fellowship with the prestigious Manhattan Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic, she built her own highly-successful practice, before returning to her Texas roots.
Dr. Walden has been practicing plastic surgery for nearly 15 years. She specializes in cosmetic surgery with a whole host of procedures such as eye-lifts, face lifts, nose jobs, vaginal rejuvenation and breast augmentations. Depending on the procedure, costs could run as high as $12,000.
Dr. Walden admits she’s a rarity in her field. Only 851 of the 8,011 board certified plastic surgeons in the U.S are women; she is one of a dozen set up in the state of Texas.
Dr. Walden says that the road to becoming a plastic surgeon is a long one. There are a few obstacles that make the profession a bit unwelcoming to women. There is usually about five years of post-medical school training required, plus additional years, in some cases. For women who want to start a family, this can be pretty daunting. Because of the rough culture, women have to continuously prove themselves.
She says one of the biggest advantages of being a woman plastic surgeon is providing women patients with a more realistic version of what a woman should look like. Many male surgeons go for a Barbie Doll-type look that isn’t even close to representing the ideal woman.
Dr. Walden freely admits that she has had Botox and even Juvederm to tighten her skin and diminish laugh lines.
A self-admitted feminist and liberal, Dr. Walden says she chose her field to help and empower women. It is a way to help women gain self-esteem and have a better quality of life. She says she is very happy that she’s doing something to help women. His Facebook page
