Austin native Dr. Jennifer Walden is one of America’s top aesthetic plastic surgeons. After spending 8 years in Manhattan and building a successful business, she pulled up stakes and headed back to her Texas roots.
Dr. Walden says she always knew she wanted to be a plastic surgeon. With her mother being a nurse and her father a doctor, it wasn’t a huge leap.
Dr. Walden is a member of the prestigious American Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. She has also won a number of awards for excellence, and her commentary has been seen on ABC, Good Morning America and CNN just to name a few.
At her full-service plastic surgery clinic in Bee Hive, Texas, she performs a number of procedures including breast augmentation, tummy tuck, rhinoplasty and vaginal rejuvenation. She also performs Botox injections.
Dr. Walden says she isn’t bothered by the fact that she is in a field where men dominate. In fact, only about 10 percent of plastic surgeons in the U.S. are men. The numbers drop even more in the state of Texas.
Empowering women is Dr. Walden’s goal. She says if plastic surgery will make you feel better about your appearance, you should go for it.
After graduating from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Dr. Walden did an externship in Miami. Soon afterwards, she moved to Manhattan and began working at the prestigious Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic. She says she was able to hone her skills by working under some of the best surgeons in the country. Dr. Sherill Alston is one of her mentors.
Now that she is back home with her twin boys, Max and Houston, all is good. With Texas being such a conservative area, she was worried about how her services would be received. As it turns out, she already had two surgeries booked before her flight home hit the ground.
