Dr. Jennifer Walden is nationally renowned, and popular for her career as a plastic surgeon but her associations with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society define more of who she really is as a person. A natural born leader, she is only woman to be on the board of directors for the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. She has been featured in several magazines being portrayed as one of the best plastic surgeons in the country and is also a published author. A mother, a media darling and family woman, Dr. Jennifer Walden is a force to be reckoned with. Her hard work has gained her recognition and her generosity has given her the good name. She is deserving of this award and is a wonderful person for dedicating her time to such a good cause.
With the field of medicine constantly advancing finding a good doctor is becoming more important. New procedures require more developed training for doctors as well as the tools they use on a daily basis. Surgeons are already held to high standards, and even more so as science and technology becomes more innovative. Aesthetic or plastic surgeons learn a variety of procedures as their skill is not only segregated to breast implants and quick tummy tucks. Now victims of burning and scarring can visit aesthetic surgeons and have their skin grafted, replaced, and ultimately recreated to decrease scarring and burn visibility. The constant revolution of surgical skills and their uses creates a desire for the best, most skilled surgeon in the field and Texas seems to be a hub of great aesthetic surgeons.
One stand out doctor is Jennifer Walden, a Texas native with years of experience in aesthetic surgery both in the operating room and outside it. Walden has created a name for herself not only because of her skill but because of her constant research dealing with the evolution of both surgical procedures and tools. Walden co-authored a book entirely about the world of aesthetic surgery and has had multiple papers published in medical journals involving her personal research in aesthetic surgery techniques. Walden has also appeared on a few big name channels like Fox News, ABC News, and VH1 to discuss a myriad of topics involving aesthetic surgery.
Walden got her start in Texas after obtaining her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas. She then graduated salutatorian from the University of Texas Medical Branch before continuing her medical education through her internship and residential years. After she finished her residency she was offered a highly sought after fellowship in New York at the Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital where she performed under Dr. Sherrell Aston, a widely known aesthetic surgeon. After perfecting her skills during her fellowship Walden stayed at the hospital and worked in the Upper East Side for nearly eight years until she moved back to Texas. She now runs her own private practice in Austin.
