Reviews, reviews, reviews, reviews – why are they so important? Well, they tell us who to trust and who not to trust as well as which people or products are at the top of the list. Speaking of which – check out Dr. Jennifer Walden Reviews, who so happens to stand among the best. Major reviews of her exist on the web, and they are highly positive. Who is she, then?
Walden has proudly served as a licensed plastic surgeon for eight years and focuses exclusively on cosmetic surgeries, including breast augmentations, face lifts, eyelid lifts and even rhinoplasties – or nose jobs. The cost to augmentate is approximately $7,000 whereas a face lift will usually cost approximately $10,000; a nose job costs between $8,000 and $9,000. Walden performs liposuctions on the abdomen, inner thigh, and arms. Minimally invasive procedures, like injecting Botox or soft-tissue fillers, are among her specialties as well.
I know she is a rarity. There simply are not many female doctors in cosmetic plastic surgery. Of approximately 8,100 U.S. board-certified plastic surgeons, more than 800 are women. Of those, approximately 180 are proud members and leaders within the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, a leading professional organization for board-certified cosmetic surgeons. Only a dozen such members live in Texas. One may find more information at https://www.crunchbase.com/person/dr-jennifer-walden#/entity.
Additionally, Walden, who grew up in Austin, was her graduating class’s salutatorian at the UT’s Medical Branch in Galveston. After finishing her aesthetic surgery fellowship through the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital, Walden then built a successful practice out of New York City and later returned to her hometown. She’s also a co-author of “Aesthetic Plastic Surgery” and currently makes every attempt to hone her writing skills to share her experiences of medical surgery with the world – through fine print.
Dr. Walden is a highly experienced cosmetic surgeon with over 21 years of experience. But while many experienced doctors share their experience exclusively within their own medical circles, Dr. Walden has shared her knowledge with the public through her various media appearances. In the media, Dr. Walden has contributed her knowledge and expertise in various publications and news outlets.
In 2008, Dr. Walden was featured in an article on ABC News, where she discussed plastic surgery ethics. This conversation was started after Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen appeared in a month long reality TV show where she would get weekly aesthetic surgeries performed on her. Dr. Walden brought up the stresses that aging actors go through, and the perceived need to keep up with their younger counterparts through cosmetic surgery. She mentioned how one’s judgement will take a back seat compared to the fear of losing their career with age. She also brought up how some patients have body dysmorphic disorder, causing some patients to seek out plastic surgery like a junkie. “And with every junkie patient, there’s a doctor out there who might not be practicing within the bounds of ethics to do yet another procedure.” Walden explained. “But it’s a cash-driven business, so doctors will do the surgery.”
In 2010, Dr. Jennifer Walden provided commentary on the complications of overly large breast implants. Sheyla Hershey held the record for “World’s Largest Breasts.” Her breast size was 38KKK. But after she got a staph infection in both breasts following another breast augmentation, she was hospitalized. Dr. Walden explained that with each breast containing more than a gallon each of silicone, complications were not unexpected. Dr. Walden also explained that if implants are too big, the body becomes unable to support massive tissue stretch. On September 15, 2010, Sheyla Hershey had her breast implants as well as most of her natural breast removed.
Dr. Jennifer Walden has also been a regular contributor for Texas Super Doctors. She has been published in Texas Super Doctors in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
