Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to alter the labia (lips) around a woman’s vagina. This surgery is usually requested to make the labia smaller or fix labia lips that are not asymmetrical. This type of surgery has been getting more and more popular partially because of images women see in pornography and because of body-baring clothing like bikinis or yoga pants.
Dr. Jennifer Walden is an aesthetic plastic surgeon, who practices in Austin. Dr. Walden decided early on that she wanted to be in the field of plastic surgery. She was drawn to this area because she felt a kinship with women who were seeking to improve their appearances, and she liked that plastic surgery showed immediate results.
Dr. Walden has stated in interviews, “Some women have a real issue with contouring when wearing tight jeans and yoga pants. They want to look and appear sleeker in that area. And enlarged labia can have a real impact on a woman’s sex life. In mechanical terms the labia can be tugged on constantly, which can cause repeated pressure during sex, which leads to severe discomfort.”
According to Dr. Walden labiaplasty has shown steady growth in her practice. She typically performs at least 2 to 3 operations per week in her Austin location, and she is highly sought by clients from all over the nation.
Dr. Walden has quite an extensive resume. She had a successful practice in Manhattan from 2004 through 2011. Once the doctor became pregnant with her twins, she decided to move back to her hometown of Austin, Texas. Here she spent time rebuilding her practice and after three years her business is better than ever. Dr. Walden is a published author, appears on television, in magazines, and has accomplished to be the only woman ever to serve on the board of directors for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
