The world of aesthetic plastic surgeons is typically known as a male-dominated practice, but Jennifer Walden, MD, LCC is a unique individual who has managed to break through that barrier. She is currently based in Texas, and she is known on a national level for her experience, skills and knowledge on plastic surgery. Dr. Walden has founded the MedSpa Walden Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Texas which is fully accredited. When she accepts patients, she analyzes and fully considers genes, ethnicity, race, and culture. This allows her practice to take a unique approach with her patients. Before she ended up in Texas, she worked on her career in New York City. After her residence at the University of Texas Medical Branch, she obtained a fellowship in aesthetic surgery at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital. She continued living at this same hospital even after her fellowship.
This allowed her to work in the Big Apple’s Upper East Side for approximately 7.5 years. Her tenure in the Big Apple let her participate in several clinical trials. These trials resulted in silicone breast implants as a reintroduction to the medical world.It wasn’t until December of 2011 is when Dr. Walden returned to Austin, Texas where she was raised. This was after she gave birth to twin sons. Her private practice was opened soon afterwards in Westlake Hills. 3 years later, she opened another office in Marble Falls, Texas. American Way has identified her as “The Best Plastic Surgeons in America.” Sheryl Sandberg’s book, “Lean in: Women, Work and the Will to Lead,” has played a major role in Dr.
Walden’s inspirations and motivations. Specifically, Dr. Walden has stated in her own words that “Women can, and should, have everything they want in life – personally and professionally. They deserve a rewarding career and a loving family.” She doesn’t believe that women should take no for an answer for anything in life. According to her, family and career can achieve a balance and women should assume this is the case. Women ought to “lean in” which leads them to a comfortable position in their lives. Dr. Walden is a living example of her own words, and other women can look to her, or perhaps Sandberg’s book, for the motivation they need.
