Jennifer Walden grew up in Austin, Texas. She started out her path to success at an early age. Attending University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston,Texas was the stepping stone to her medical beginnings. There she was salutatorian.
In addition to University of Texas Medical Branch, Jennifer Walden also attended an aesthetic surgery fellowship at The Manhattan Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital. After this training, Jennifer Walden started practice in New York City.
Going back to her hometown roots, Jennifer Walden returned to Texas in 2011. At that point she also was a co author in a book titled, “Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.”
Plastic surgery is a male dominated field. The overwhelming majority of doctors are male who preform plastic surgery. There are approximately eight thousand one hundred board certified plastic surgeons in the United States. About eight hundred and fifty one of these doctors are female.Only a small sampling of these women physicians are also board certified cosmetic surgeons involved with the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. About one hundred and eighty of them fit that description. Out of that small number only about one dozen women doctors live and work in Texas. For that reason, alone, Jennifer Warden is in the minority.
Jennifer Warden has some theories why this is a male dominated field. There is a lot of years of schooling that are required to become a plastic surgeon. Women who are in the field, may need to delay childbearing to continue on this career path. That can cause some women who are interested in this career to rethink the decision to start on this career path. Due to the fact that the vast majority of best plastic surgeons are men, that can lead to women feeling less welcome in that field.
The vast majority of plastic surgery is preformed on women. She feels that plastic surgery can boost confidence leading to an overall heightened sense of well being. Happiness can follow the stronger sense of confidence. Jennifer Warden feels that is her reason for embarking on this career path and calling.
