The Face of Personalized Cosmetic Surgery

Jennifer L. Walden, MD, FACS

Jennifer Walden

Dr. Jennifer Walden is a rarity. To start, only about 12 percent of board-certified plastic surgeons who specialize in aesthetic surgery are women. But that’s only part of what makes Dr. Walden a standout in her field. Her personalized approach, with input from a best-in-class team, is second to none.

With many options to consider, all patients receive a thorough consultation to determine what procedures—surgical and nonsurgical—are best for them. Cosmetic plastic surgery is one choice. Sexual wellness treatments by advanced-level nurse practitioners are another. Medical spa cosmetic treatments by expert aestheticians are also on the list. Dr. Walden helps patients make the best choices for their bodies and lifestyles. “As a board-certified plastic surgeon fellowship-trained in aesthetic surgery, I am fortunate to be able to rejuvenate most areas of the body through surgery if a patient is an appropriate candidate,” she says. “But I can also see through the lens of someone who doesn’t need or want plastic surgery and know what women—and men—can do to improve upon their appearances without undergoing the knife.”

Whether you’re a mother who wants her body to feel “put back together” after having children, a CEO who has run a business for decades and seeks a natural-looking facelift, or a woman who wants a freshened look through noninvasive body sculpting and facial fillers, Dr. Walden and her medspa professionals will guide you to the path toward a more youthful you.
