Dr. Jennifer Walden: A Female Pioneer In American Plastic Surgery

Dr. Jennifer Walden has just been named as Secretary to the Executive Board of the American Society of for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). The honor is the culmination of a career dedicated to enhancing her patient’s physical appearance and self-esteem. Not only is this Dr. Walden’s first tenure on the ASAPS Executive Committee, but she is the board’s first sitting female member.

The Austin, Texas-based doctor clearly has the bona fides the ASAPS is looking for. A graduate of the University of Texas Medical Branch, with a fellowship in aesthetic surgery at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital, Dr. Walden established and runs her own private practice and ambulatory surgical center in Austin. As one of the few female board-certified doctors in U.S. plastic surgery, Dr. Walden was already a pioneer in the field, but she has continued to work tirelessly towards advancing the field, developing the use of laser technology for high-volume labiaplasty and vaginoplasty procedures.

Dr. Jennifer Walden has also been a strong and vocal supporter of her field, co-authoring the textbook Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, lecturing at conferences around the country, and lending her expert opinion to a number of media outlets, including Fox News, ABC News, Dr. 90210, and VH1. Prior to her appointment to the ASAPS board, Dr. Walden even served as the society’s Commissioner of Communications.

The recognition Dr. Walden has received for her efforts in this field is clearly well-deserved. She has been named as a Texas Super Doctor, a Castle Connely Top Doctor two years running, and, in 2014, Harper’s Bazaar named her as one of the best beauty doctors in the United States. For Dr. Walden, though, the most fulfilling part of her job is the presence and voice it gives her to champion many great causes. She has been an outspoken supporter of the Austin Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the Guardian Angel Society, the Junior League of Austin’s Food in Tummies initiative, the American Heart Association, and several local education programs. Dr. Jennifer Walden is an unflagging supporter of her field and her patients, and she has set the foundation for a long, fruitful career to come.
