Dr. Jennifer Walden is a super star in the arena of aesthetic plastic surgery. She was recently named one of the top 24 surgeons in the U.S. by Harper’s Bazaar. She was able to train with the top cosmetic surgeons in New York City. She had established her own practice in Manhattan, before deciding to return to her hometown of Austin, Texas. Dr. Walden, is one of the few women who has ever been on the board of directors of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Jennifer is a warm and friendly person, putting her patients and friends at ease with her relaxed manner. She leads a very busy life, with her Austin practice and her two young sons, Houston and Rex, to look after. She moved back to Austin after her sons were born to be near her family and her home while raising her boys. Jennifer got to the place where she is today by a driving focus and a lot of hard work.
She is lucky to have a strong family to support her efforts. Her late father was a dentist. Her mother worked as a surgical nurse. She was one of five children that grew up in a family where education and achievement were major values. Dr. Walden attended the University of Texas at Austin for her bachelor’s degree and then attended medical school. She graduated as Salutatorian of her class. She was then accepted into the plastic surgery program at the University of Texas Galveston. She then did a fellowship program at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital.
Since returning to Austin, Dr. Walden has built a successful and growing business at the Westlake Medical Center where she does most of her surgeries. Her guiding philosophy is to “make things happen.”
