Is it possible to be a successful Cosmetic Surgeon and a beautiful, accomplished woman? If you are talking about Dr. Jennifer Walden, it is definitely possible. She is one of only a few women, to have ever served on the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Currently, she is on that Board, and also is an author, media commentator, plastic surgeon and founder of her own medical practice, and the Walden Cosmetic Surgery Center PLLC, located in Austin, Texas.
Dr. Walden is a Texas girl, born in Austin and growing up in a wealthy suburb of Austin, attended the best schools, which are located in her neighborhood. Going into a field of medicine was a clear choice for Dr. Walden. She chose plastic surgery because the creativity and originality called out to her artistic skills and personality. She understands her patients’ (mostly females) wanting to look better. Dr. Weldon received most of her education in Texas, until she was accepted as one of two associate surgeons chosen that year to practice in a surgery fellowship program in Manhattan.
No surprise, Dr. Weldon fell in love with the city of Manhattan and stayed for eight years, learning the business and opening her own clinic in association with her mentor and experienced plastic surgeon. Dr. Weldon admits that dating, marriage and having children were not in her plans throughout her twenties and thirties, however she changed her career plans when she reached her late thirties and had twin boys in 2010 using in-vitro fertilization, since there was no man in her life. With deep family roots in Austin, Dr. Walden moved herself and her sons back to Texas so her sons would be surrounded by family as they grew up.
It did not take long for the accomplished aesthetic plastic surgeon to re-locate her successful medical practice to Austin where she continued to be noticed, received awards and named to a number of “Best” lists. In 2014. Dr. Walden was listed as one of the twenty-four best beauty surgeons by Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and also placed on the list of “Super Doctors” in 2014 and 2015. The “Super Doctors” are selected for showing a consumer-based focus in their medical area of expertise.
