There are so many ways we can contribute to the lives of others. It is proven fact that gratitude goes a long way, and then having the ability to make others smile, make us smile too. Dr. Jennifer Walden is a plastic surgeon based in Austin, Texas, whose main goal is making her patients feel better about themselves. Her passion and desire to help others began at a young age, as she observed her parents, who were both in the medical field. After finishing high school, the ambitious Dr. Walden set her sights on a career in medicine. Her warm demeanor and personalized approach have established herself as one of the most successful plastic surgeons in Texas.
While she is committed to helping anyone she can, Dr. Walden is an advocate for women empowerment. Her staff consists of 16 women, who are dedicated to providing patients a supportive and worry-free experience both during and after their procedure.
Born and raised in Austin, Texas Dr. Walden learned the importance of helping others through her parents. After obtaining her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Texas, she applied to medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch. While she was initially waitlisted, she persevered and graduated salutatorian of her class. After completing her residency at the University, she was offered a fellowship in aesthetic surgery at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital. She would remain there for several years before deciding to spread her wings and venture into the world of entrepreneurship.
After building a successful practice in the big apple, she began to realize she was ready for a family. Being so heavily focused on advancing her career and building her practice had left little time for traditional dating, so she began to explore other options. With her heart set on becoming a mother, Dr. Walden opted on IVF and soon gave birth to two beautiful twin boys. Shortly after their birth, she relocated back to Austin to be closer to her family. With the help of a strong support system, she was able to reestablish her practice, and begin helping others, right in her hometown.
