There are only 800+ women who are board certified in plastic surgery. Dr. Jennifer Walden believes this trend in a male-dominated industry is due to the amount of time it takes to become a surgeon. According to Dr. Walden, many women do not want to forgo their childbearing years in order to pursue a career that takes years to accomplish.
Dr. Walden believes that there are advantages to being a woman in a male-dominated field. 91 percent of patients requesting plastic surgery are women. That statistic gives her the upper hand over her male counterparts because she can answer specific questions related to the female body.
Dr. Jennifer Walden spent seven years as a cosmetic surgeon in New York’s Upper East Side before deciding to return to her hometown of Austin, Texas. Dr. Walden was named one of Harpers Bazaar 24 most cutting edge doctors in the cosmetic surgery field.
She is the top plastic surgeon in Texas and is recognized as one of the top plastic surgeons in the United States.
