Modern Aesthetics’ and Plastic Surgery Practice’s Editorial Board of Directors member plastic surgeon Jennifer Lee Walden is also an author and media commentator. However, her medical career began in New York at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital under the mentorship of Dr. Sherrell Aston. After her fellowship in aesthetic surgery, she stayed on for seven and a half years with the hospital working on New York City’s Upper East Side where she was an active participant in trials which brought back the silicone breast implant.
In December of 2011 after the birth of her twin sons, she moved back to her hometown of Austin, Texas and founded a private plastic surgery practice, Jennifer L, Walden, M.D, PLLC and Walden Cosmetic Surgery Center, PLLC, followed by a branch office in Marble Falls in 2014. In that same year she was named by Harper’s Bazaar as one of the 24 Best Beauty Surgeons.
Walden is best known as being one of the first doctors to perform numerous vaginoplasties and labiaplasties by way of laser machines. She uses a 3-D imaging technology which shows the outcome of the surgery on a specific patient before even going under. Then she rejuvenates and tightens the vagina with a temperature-controlled, radio-frequency system. She also developed her own breast surgery instruments which are carried by the Accurate Scientific and Surgical Instruments. Walden is also a consultant for numerous aesthetic corporations.
Not only does she perform surgeries and procedures, but she is also an expert plastic surgery commentator for network giants Fox News, ABC News, E!, and VH1, as well as for Dr. 90210. She even co-wrote the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery textbook, and was elected as one of the few female members serving the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Board of Directors
Born in Austin, Texas on November 17th, 1971, Dr. Walden completed her primary school studies at Anderson High School, then went to the University of Texas to get her undergraduate degree in Biology. Finally, she graduated from the university’s Medical Branch as salutatorian of her class when she received her MD.
