Dr. Jennifer Walden, Austin local plastic surgeon is also a philanthropist who loves to help her community. Before Dr. Walden relocated to Austin, she was a successful doctor in New York City. She grew up in the Austin area and attended the University of Texas Medical Branch of Galveston. She graduated at the top of her class before going onto her fellowship at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat hospital in New York. Once her fellowship was completed, Dr. Walden then went on to open her own practice in cosmetic surgery.
There is a limited number of women who practice plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery. The number of women is lower as it takes longer to earn your degree as well as to complete your fellowship in this area of medicine. For most women, they do not want to spend the amount of time needed to successfully be a surgeon due to the interference in their own lives. In order to complete this, women must hold off having children in order to focus on their career. For this reason, most women enter into a different area of medicine.
Dr. Jennifer Walden is more than just a surgeon. She is a mother to a set of twin boys, Houston and Rex, who were born in New York. It was after her boys that she decided to move back to the Austin area in order to be closer to her family. Upon returning to Austin, Dr. Walden went on to open her own plastic surgeon practice. Located in the Westlake Medical Center, Dr. Walden offers her expertise to those who want to have breast augmentations as well as nose jobs, face lifts and more. For women who are searching for someone to do Botox, this is also readily available in her practice as well. To know more about him click here.
Dr. Walden is also very active within her community by partnering with FIT, Food in Tummies to offer free meals to those in need who are in school. On weekends, when kids normally do not have enough food to eat are at home, they are given a backpack with free food in it to help them be full when not in school. Those kids who receive free or reduced lunches at school are the ones who are helped in this program.
