Dr. Jennifer Walden is an excellent plastic surgeon whose practice provides breast augmentations, eyelid lifts, face lifts and rhinoplasties. She also performs liposuction surgery.

At best the number of board certified females equals 10 percent of the total. Perhaps a dozen or so live in Texas.
Her take on the challenge is that plastic surgeons must complete five years of additional medical training, and then maybe several years more to complete a fellowship. The atmosphere for success and is not as welcome for women. Dr. Jennifer Walden has the additional pressure of having to prove her worth. However, she has proven she can handle the pressure.

The majority of these women are not trying to achieve bodies that look like a Barbie doll. Their reasons for surgery are due saggy or asymmetric parts of their body they want to change.
A woman’s body will also experience a number of significant changes after giving birth. Add to this the fact that many women are more comfortable talking to another woman about their medical concerns, and Dr. Jennifer Walden knows that patients value her skills.
