My plastic surgery experience with Dr. Jennifer Walden

Published / by TheRugbyUnion

I went to see Dr. Jennifer Walden for rhinoplasty surgery, also known as a “nose job”, about a year ago now. I specifically decided to choose her as my plastic surgeon because of the fact that she’s a woman and she had an amazing track record. In trying to find the perfect surgeon, for my seemingly simple surgery, I noticed that the industry is dominated by male surgeons and I felt like she would better understand my needs and concerns being a woman herself. Dr. Walden proved me right, as I am very satisfied with my results after healing. Before surgery she walked me through all of the steps and she discussed with me in detail about post surgery and how to make sure I healed correctly. Her staff was also great and helpful throughout the process. Knowing that she is one of the 851 board-certified plastic surgeons in the country that are women (the remaining 7,249 are men) made me feel proud to be one of her patients. In doing my research, I also discovered for female surgeons this is a good thing. Over 90 percent of all cosmetic surgeries are performed on women. This includes augmentations to tummy and face lifts. A lot due to the significant changes from giving birth. Most women, like myself, are more comfortable talking to another woman about these things than they are with men. Another thing I liked about Dr. Walden was the fact that she was very personable and knowledgeable. Even though she is very well known, she did not make me feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed. I would refer her to any of my friends interested in plastic surgery.
