As one of the few women in plastic surgery, Dr. Walden has said that the culture is not very welcoming to women as it is so dominated by men. She has to prove herself every year as a female surgeon which she is fine with but in this day and age it is a bit ridiculous. She says there are advantages, though, as many women will specifically seek her out as another women.
