She is well aware that very few female doctors opt for cosmetic plastic surgery. There are nearly 8,100 certified plastic surgeons, and only 851 out of these are women.
Dr. Jennifer Walden states that the reason why so few women enter into surgery is that it requires a minimum of five years of training which is after completing medical school. This will be followed by a year or two of getting a fellowship. This means that a woman will have to delay her bearing of children. Besides, she feels that a female surgeon has to prove myself all the time. But Dr. Jennifer Walden is fine with all this. Instagram Photos.
