I do a lot of breast augmentation and secondary breast surgery. VECTRA® has proven to be invaluable when dealing with asymmetry, and helps the patient decide on the implant size that will let them achieve their goals. For rhinoplasty procedures as well, it's been a great adjunct to my consultations and surgical planning.
When Dr. Jennifer Walden installed the VECTRA 3D system in her plastic surgery practice, she anticipated the value it would bring to her patient consultations. With many of her clients interested in cosmetic procedures, she saw the benefit in improving their understanding of the expected outcomes. She was pleasantly surprised, however, when local media outlets started showing up at her door for stories on how she uses this new technology, the first of its kind in Austin. This has resulted in segments on several local TV stations and featured articles in news publications.
Of course for Dr. Walden, it's still all about the patient. "The VECTRA 3D system has become an important part of my patient consultations and education. It provides clarity for my patients by helping them understand what they would look like after surgery, and it helps me in the surgical planning process."
In addition to her skills in plastic surgery, Dr. Walden is also an established author, having published numerous articles as well as co-authoring an award-winning textbook entitled Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. She serves as a consultant to the nation's leading breast implant and aesthetic companies including Allergan Medical, and serves on their National Council of Leaders in Breast Aesthetics. Dr. Walden is interested in both the technique and artistry of aesthetic surgery, and has developed her own instruments for breast surgery.
Dr. Jennifer Walden is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and is fellowship-trained in Cosmetic Surgery. Before relocating to Austin, Dr. Walden was an Attending in Plastic Surgery at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat and Lenox Hill Hospitals with the academic appointment of Clinical Instructor of Surgery (Plastic Surgery) at New York University Langone Medical Center. She completed her medical education and residency training at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas.
