Dr. Jennifer Walden Says Being a Surgeon Takes a Rough Path

Dr. Walden was born and raised in Austin, and she was always a bright student in the class. The above is evidenced by the fact that she scooped the position of the salutatorian of the medical class in University of Texas at Galveston. The review reveals that Dr. Walden went to the aesthetic surgery fellowship in Manhattan Hospital after University. She then built a successful career in New York City, before deciding to return to Austin in 2011. Dr. Walden is a Co- author of the book titled Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

In a review, Dr. Walden stated that she has been practicing plastic surgery for a period of 8 years. She majors on cosmetic surgery, especially face-lifts, eyelid lifts, rhinoplasties or nose jobs, and breast augmentation. She says that the augmentations cost approximately $7000 while face lifts cost $10, 000. On the other hand, nose jobs cost from $8000 to $9, 000. Dr. Walden also says that she does liposuction on arms, thighs, abdomens, as well as inner thighs. She as well performs procedures that are minimally invasive such as injection of Botox and filling of soft tissues.

In the review, Dr. Walden also said that she is a rarity, as there are only a few doctors, who agree to go into plastic surgery. Out of the more than 8000 plastic surgeons that are board certified, only 851 are women. Of the above, only 180 members are in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Association. Dr. Walden says that the field is more male dominated because it requires intensive schooling. One takes at least 5 years post medical school training and years of fellowship to be a surgeon. Walden says that many women avoid the field because it may sometimes demand they delay their child bearing ages. She also posits that being a surgeon is rough and has until the recent past been unwelcoming to women. Instagram Photos.
