Dr. Jennifer Walden is an American Board Certified cosmetic plastic surgeon practicing in Austin, Texas. She completed her medical degree in 1998 at the University of Texas Medical Branch. In 2003, she finished her residency there and spent the following year in the Fellowship Program at the renowned Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York.
She stayed there at Manhattan Hospital for about the next seven years and built a thriving medical practice. After her twin sons were born and reached the age of 17 months, she moved back to Austin so her sons could be near their family. Any doubts she had about whether she would have a successful practice in Austin were short-lived. Before her plane landed in Austin, two patients had made appointments for breast augmentation surgeries, and her practice grew rapidly from day one.
Having entered a profession and specialty where women were in the minority and not always welcome, she had to work extra hard and prove herself repeatedly. Dr. Walden never held back because she was passionate about helping her patients have the best lives they possibly could have. Her goal was to care for the whole person and make them more comfortable in their own body.
In an interview with Vivex Magazine, she said, “I have a set of hands that can work and perform this skill.” She said she was happy to be able to do something that would make the patient’s life better now and for a long time to come. For her excellence, she has been listed in the Texas SuperDoctors publications from 2014 to 2017, a process where doctors are chosen by their peers based on a set of 10 criteria. According to the SuperDoctors Website, only about 5 percent of doctors in a state or region are named to SuperDoctors honor list.
