Being a female plastic surgeon
Plastic surgery is a field mostly dominated by men, but Dr. Walden quickly found she had an advantage over the opposite sex. As an estimated 91% of plastic surgeries are performed on women, she realized that there was a market that needed someone like her. She happens to be a mother of twins which has helped her closely identify with other women whose body has changed due to pregnancy. When feeling insecure about certain parts of their body that they want to change— she has found that women feel a lot more comfortable talking to another woman about it.
Jennifer Walden was born in Austin, Texas in 1971 to a dentist father and a mother who was a surgical nurse. After graduating high school she completed a degree in Biology from the University of Texas. She then continued her education on the medical branch of the same university and completed an MD, graduating a salutatorian.
