Her dad was a dentist and her mom a surgical nurse, and young Jennifer Walden knew at a young age that she wanted to choose a medical profession as well.
Today, the Texas native reigns as one of the most popular plastic surgeons across the United States.
The Austin hometown girl received her diploma from Anderson High School and then graduated from University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor’s degree in biology. Jennifer Walden stood out from the rest of her class, achieving recognition early on with her medical doctorate and salutatorian ranking from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.
Jennifer Walden completed her residency training in the Lone Star State and then headed to New York City. There she studied aesthetic surgery after being selected for a prestigious fellowship at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital. During her time in New York City, Jennifer Walden was named associate of the world-renown aesthetic plastic surgeon, Dr. Sherrell Aston. She stayed in NYC for the next eight years.
The beautiful plastic surgeon got homesick for Texas, especially since deciding on motherhood. She became a single parent by choice and enjoys raising her fraternal twin boys Houston and Rex around family and friends in Austin.
Dr. Jennifer Walden has developed a major female base, because as a woman, she has compassion for those who suffer from body image problems. If a woman decides she would like a tummy tuck and breast lift following the birth of three children, Dr. Jennifer Walden understands and shows sensitivity to normal, everyday women who just want to sensibly return to their youth or pre-pregnancy state. In fact, she says the numbers don’t lie, in that 92% of cosmetic surgery patients are women.
Another great aspect to being a female plastic surgeon is in the comfort factor. Women are not intimidated or embarrassed to discuss cosmetic surgery or expose their bodies to a female surgeon like Dr. Jennifer Walden.
Dr. Jennifer Walden is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. She also serves as Commissioner of Communications for the ASAPS and as a member of its Board of Directors.
