Jennifer Walden is certainly one of the most accomplished women, if not person, in her field. That field is plastic surgery. Dr. Jennifer Walden is certainly one of the most successful and well-respected people in that field of medicine. In fact, she was even named one of the 24 best beauty surgeons in the United States by Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. She is also one of the few women in the history of the organization to sit on the board of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Those are just her professional accomplishments. This woman truly does have it all. On top of having one of the most successful careers in her field, Dr. Walden also has two twin boys that she is raising on her own. The woman literally does it all when it comes to work and parenting. Those that use her new practice in Austin can clearly see that.
She recently moved back to her hometown of Austin after years of running her own private plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, NY. Her story starts in Texas and currently revolves around Texas. Some might say that she is Texan by way of New York.
Walden was born and raised in Austin. She then got her undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin. During her bachelor’s degree is when she decided that she was going to try to go to medical school. Walden applied to Texas and got in after originally being wait-listed by the school.
Her chosen specialty was plastic surgery. She loved the immediacy of the results of surgery and the artistic aspect of it. She graduated second in her class in medical school before starting a resident at a plastic surgery hospital in Manhattan. The residency was very hard to acquire as only two students nationally are ableo to get the residenty position annually.
After 15 years or so in New York she decided to have kids. She was single at the time so she decided to become pregnant by In Vitro fertilization. The impetus for her move back to Austin is the fact that she wanted to raise her twin boys closer to her family the way that she grew up. She has built a strong practice in Austin in just the 3 years that she has been there.
