Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden graduated at the top of her class from the University of Texas Medical Branch and completed a prestigious externship in Miami. After a fellowship at Manhattan’s Ear, Eye and Throat Hospital, she built up a successful aesthetic plastic surgery center in New York. Eight years later, she opted to move back to her Texas roots with her sons Houston and Rex.
Dr. Walden is one of the top plastic surgeons in the U.S. despite the fact that about 90 percent of the surgeons in her field are men. She focuses on aesthetic plastic surgery and routinely performs nose jobs, breast augmentations, eye-lifts and face-lifts. Her services can range anywhere from $7,000 to $10,000.
Dr. Walden says she doesn’t mind being a rarity. Of the 8,100 plastic surgeons in the U.S., only about 180 are members of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and only 12 live in Texas. Click here to know more.
She says one of the biggest reasons why the field is heavily dominated by men is because women likely have to put off having a family for several years. The field hasn’t always been welcoming to women, says Dr. Walden. “I have to constantly prove myself, but I’m not bothered by that.”
Being a female in the industry does have its pluses. According to Dr. Walden, about 91 percent of cosmetic surgeries are performed by women. This is good thing because women don’t have to suffer through a male’s cookie-cutter Barbie Doll archetype. “Most women just want to correct what is wrong. Dr. Walden on LinkedIn.
Dr. Walden say she can empathize with her patients because she’s experienced some of the same sagging and changes when she became a mother. She openly admits to having plastic surgery and encourages women to take advantage of it if they see something that needs fixing.
Plastic surgery can be used to correct a number of situations affecting a person. Dr. Jennifer Walden offers some insights to this matter.
When going about daily chores and works, a person is bound to be exposed to the sun and get bouts of stress. Over the years, these two works against the face by creating wrinkles that, in turn, age a person. However, plastic surgery can come in handy to correct the situation through a simple procedure called facelift, otherwise known as, rhytidectomies. The procedure corrects sagging of the mid-face, lower cheek and fatty areas, and creases under the eyes and between the mouth and the nose. Facelift involves removal of excess skin and fats and tightening the muscles. The results give a person a much younger look. Another plastic surgery procedure of the face is Rhinoplasty, which involves reshaping, increasing, or reducing the nose. The procedure involves changing how the nose lies to the mouth, removing a hump or reducing the width. When Rhinoplasty is done together with septoplasty and sinus removal, it can correct breathing problems caused by a deviated septum. Dr. Jennifer Walden uses Vectra, a high-end three-dimensional technology in performing this procedure.
