Men dominate the field of cosmetic plastic surgery as of the 8100 board certified professions only 851 doctors are women, Dr. Jennifer has led the group of women doctors in showing that women can also prosper in that field. Currently, there are only 12 cosmetic plastic surgeons who are living in Texas. One of the major reason why women are less in surgery is that of the dedication that is required to qualify.
A person would need at least seven years to become a certified surgeon. Seven years for a woman is a lot as she has to delay bearing children. In addition to that, the culture concerning surgery is rough for women just as a woman on Wall Street this makes women like Dr. Jennifer Walden who are in practice to have to prove themselves yearly.
