In the field of cosmetic surgery, the name Dr. Jennifer Walden is one which stands out.
The founder of Walden Cosmetic Surgery Center based in Austin, Texas, the 45-year-old mother of twin boys has emerged as a leading medical authority within her field. She is a media commentator of cosmetic surgical practices as well as a consultant to many aesthetic companies.
When it comes to the medical field, Dr. Jennifer Walden may have been destined to join it since her birth. She is the daughter of a couple already in the field originally in Austin. Her father was a dentist and her mother a surgical nurse.
Walden earned a bachelor’s degree in biology at the University of Texas. She applied to Texas’ medical program and eventually earned salutatorian honors when she graduated. She went through her residency at Texas before moving to New York City, earning a fellowship at the Manhattan Ear, Eye, and Throat Hospital.
After many years in the Big Apple, Dr. Walden eventually returned home to Austin to set up a private practice there in 2011. This was shortly after the birth of her twin sons. By 2014, she also had opened a satellite office in Marble Falls, Texas.
Dr. Walden specializes in more modern types of cosmetic surgery. An example of her practice is the use of the 3-D imaging technology known as Vectra. This procedure creates a visual of a patient’s pre-surgery look. Walden also is known to use the ThermiVa radio-frequency system which helps tightens and restore the vaginal area of a woman. She also has been credited for developing new and approved equipment for breast surgery.
Given her reputation, Walden has a number of honors. She is a board-certified plastic surgeon and was recently recognized by American Airlines magazine as one of the nation’s best in her field. She is on the Board of Directors for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery as well as its Commissioner of Communications. Walden also is a media spokesperson for ASAPS and recently was chosen for membership of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons which is invitation-only.
