Texas plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden had an attraction to the sciences at a very young age. With her father being a physician and her mother a nurse, it seems that she naturally gravitated to medicine. Dr. Walden currently runs her own aesthetic plastic surgery center in Westlake. She has 19 years of experience under her belt and a huge throng of loyal patients.
Dr. Walden built a successful practice in Manhattan before opting to pull up stakes and return to her Texas roots. After graduating from high school, she graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in biology. She went on to complete Walden’s medical training at the University of Texas Medical Branch. She also completed an externship in Miami.
She moved to Manhattan after being chosen for a fellowship at the prestigious Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital. It was there where she honed her skills as a aesthetic plastic surgeon. Walden also partnered with world-famous plastic surgeon Dr. Sherell Alston.
After becoming a mom of twin boys in 2011, Dr. Walden says she gained more fulfillment as a surgeon. But she also became homesick, and chose to move back home to have her sons raised around family. She has received many awards in her field. The most recent, the selection in Texas Monthly Magazine as one of the state’s Super Doctors.
Dr. Walden admits she’s a rarity in her field. The plastic surgery field is made up of less than 10 percent women. Dr. Walden theorizes that many women opt for other fields because becoming a plastic surgeon can take several years. This often means delaying starting a family.
Dr. Walden says she enjoys her job because it gives her the opportunity to help others. “I want to give them results they can be proud of.”
