My philosophy as a plastic surgeon is that whether a patient is here for a functional issue or a cosmetic concern from the start she is an active and a vital member of her own care team. Every effort will be made to listen to patient’s concerns and goals, and together come up with a plane to achieve them. I strive to create an environment built on trust and compassion where patients feel open and relaxed during their preoperative, surgical and postoperative care. Plastic surgery is a multifaceted specialty and requires a great deal of attention to the smallest of details for the best results. I am committed to providing this type of excellent care while always treating a patient like I would a member of my own family.

“Dr. Rednam is an amazing doctor!! She is extremely talented, a perfectionist along with being kind and compassionate with a way of making her patients feel special. I felt comfortable immediately. She makes herself readily available before and after surgery. I have never had to wait more than ten minutes to see her, but she takes her time with me and answers all my questions anticipating ones that I may have forgot. I would and have recommended her to anyone that asks. She is great!!”
“By far the best plastic surgeon I have met. When I started researching doctors I found the top 20 in Houston and had consultations with them all! Dr. Rednam was the only one who made a personal connection with me and didn’t treat me like just another patient on her schedule. Her team is also the same and are always available when I have questions. My surgery went amazing and recovery has been a breeze. She’s really good at what she does!”
“I absolutely Love! Dr. Rukmini Rednam. As a Breast Cancer Survivor, I fill very blessed to have crossed paths with her. In my journey through breast reconstruction she has shown compassion, been caring and informative in helping me choose the right treatment for me.
