Dr. Jennifer Walden has been the subject of several magazine articles that highlight some of today’s more prominent surgeons. As a female plastic surgeon specializing in the field of cosmetic surgery, Dr. Walden is considered to be one of the more empathetic doctors in her field. Her patients often describe her as having a professional yet compassionate attitude that makes them feel at ease. As one of only 851 board certified plastic surgeons who are female, Dr. Walden has come to view herself as a rare individual within the field of cosmetic surgery.
The connections Dr. Walden makes with her patients stem from her roles as both a female doctor as well as a mother. Since the majority of cosmetic surgeries are performed on women, she feels she has a greater understanding of how their sense of self is connected to the way they look. Many women choose to have tummy tucks or breast lifts to bring back the younger, more suppler appearance of their bodies. This is especially true of women who have gone through pregnancy. As a female cosmetic surgeon, her patients feel more comfortable in confiding their feelings with her, because they believe she will be better at understanding their needs.
As the mother of twin boys, Dr. Jennifer Walden is often described as a hometown girl. Although she moved to New York for her residency and stayed for seven years afterward, she eventually came back to her home town of Austin, Texas. Family is important to her and she wanted her sons to be close to their roots. She also wanted to bring the skills she had obtained to the Austin area, which she felt was in need of more options for cosmetic surgery. Her goal is to provide women with a better sense of self-esteem through the cosmetic procedures she offers at her clinic.
