Dr. Jennifer Walden is a force to be reckoned with. Dr. Walden has established herself as one of the top names in cosmetic surgery. With Harper’s Bazaar naming her one of top 24 best beauty surgeons in America, her already busy waiting list is bursting to the brim.
Originally hailing from Austin, Texas, Jennifer Walden radiates a calm warmth both in her practice and outside it. Her father was a dentist, and her mother a surgical nurse who managed her and 4 other siblings at home. Her parents instilled in her the importance of an education, and she took that lesson to heart graduating Salutatorian in medical school and attaining a highly exclusive aesthetic surgery fellowship at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital.
On top of all of this, Walden has twin boys who were born in 2010 With the support of her mother and the help of nannies, Walden relocated her practice to Austin’s Westlake Medical Center and accomplished the seemingly impossible feat of having a thriving career and home life.
Dr. Walden fully appreciates the challenges and demands of “having it all”, and she wants to inspire young girls to pursue both their career goals and family goals. But of course, she wants young women to know that they “must be prepared to make difficult decisions” and prioritize their lives accordingly. Walden emphasizes that girls need the support of nannies, family, or a partner, if they want to maintain a demanding career and rich family life.
While leading her own practice, Dr. Walden is currently on the Board of Directors for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and also its Vice Commissioner of Communications. In addition, she serves as the media spokesperson for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery as well as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Walden was also the Program Director of the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship until her move back to Austin.
