Jennifer Walden is from Austin, Texas. She graduated with honors at the University of Texas Medical Branch located in Galveston. After finishing her fellowship in aesthetic surgery at Manhattan’s Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital, she was able to build a name for herself in the city of New York.
According to Dr. Jennifer Walden, she has eight years of practice as a plastic surgeon. Her field of specialty is mainly cosmetic surgery that comprises of rhinoplasties, eyelid lifts, face-lifts, and breast augmentations. She also revealed the cost per job like: nose jobs (rhinoplasties) cost $8,000 to $9,000, face-lift for $10,000, augmentation costs around $7,000, etc. Dr. Walden added that she likewise do liposuction services on the arms and thighs along with invasive procedures that are minimal such as soft-tissue fillers and injecting Botox and more
Dr. Walden commented that she is aware of the fact that female doctors like her are rare in the sector of cosmetic plastic surgery since the field is dominated by male doctors. Out of the approximately 8,100 licensed plastic surgeons in the country only 851 are female, and around 150 are members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery – a professional organization of cosmetic surgeons who are licensed board passers. As per Dr. Walden, there are approximately 12 plastic surgeons who reside in Texas.
In her opinion, the main cause for the minor presence of lady doctors in plastic surgery or for whatever field of medical surgery is that it take about 7 years to be a full-pledge surgeon in ones chosen field of specialty, which would be about 5 years training for post-medical school that sometimes include a year or two for fellowship. And in the case of a woman, such circumstance would require having to delay the desire to have children. In addition to that, the surgery field is quite unrefined, obliging lady doctors to prove themselves from time-to-time.
Dr. Jennifer Walden says that the benefits of having a career like hers is that most individuals who go for plastic surgery are women; and majority of her patients disclose that they are more comfortable talking to another woman about some specific parts of their body since they are aware of the fact that she will not be critical about their desire to have plastic surgery.
