Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden: A ‘Woman’s Perspective’ On Cosmetic Surgery In A Male Dominated Field

Those baggy sacks of the lower eyelid hanging down under your eyes, the fat building up and that slightly loosened skin hanging below your chin combing to softens and muddles your jaw line?

 

You feel no longer feel you look fresh, determined and, well, young.

 

Enter someone like Dr. Jennifer Walden

 

Yes, Dr. Jennifer Walden is a woman in the field of ‘Plastic Surgery’ that is dominated by men despite the fact that Approximately 90% of all cosmetic plastic surgery is performed on woman.

 

She feels this gives her a better perspective to understand what her patient wants as far as their personal look and not some centerfold model or, as she says, “… the male ideal archetype of a Barbie-doll body.” She has also had some cosmetic procedures herself allowing her to really understand what her patients are experiencing.

 

Now Jennifer Walden has returned to Austin, Texas; the town she grew up in. She attended the University of Texas Medical Branch and graduated as the salutatorian of her class. To finish her formal education; she headed east to the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital where she did her fellowship and then ‘Hung Out Her Shingle’ on New York’s Upper East Side and spent more than seven years there establishing a very respected and rewarding practice.

 

Her return to Austin was prompted by a desire to be close to family and though Dallas and Houston have a thriving plastic surgery business she wanted to work in the Austin area and was questioning how long it would take her get a plastic surgery business up and running in the smaller Austin area. The answer was apparently not too long as her reputation somehow proceeded her and she found two local clients already calling and scheduling appointments for breast augmentation as soon as she stepped off the plane and set her foot back in Austin.
