Dr. Rukmini “Vinaya” Rednam (@dr.rednam) is popular in a few ways. She’s not only known for being an expert plastic surgeon—and a wonderful mom. She’s well recognized for the way she develops close relationships with her patients. Some may wonder why she chooses to do so. Well, the Houston plastic surgeon (of My Houston Surgeons) would tell you that it’s one of the secrets to her success.
Dr. Rednam is a powerhouse in the medical field, and she’s setting the bar for plastic surgeons all around the globe. Whether she’s performing surgery, spending time with her family, or creating content, Dr. Rednam is dedicated to making people feel special. And although she’s a wife with a busy life, she devotes much of her time coming up with ways to liberate others.
Helping people develop confidence is an area Dr. Rednam is highly skilled in. When it comes to “societal norms”, things can seem harsh at times, leaving people with self-doubt and insecurities. She understands this to the core. That’s why her goal is to comfort those who find it difficult to overcome a lack of self-confidence. She often speaks on mental health awareness, especially when it comes to young men and women. As an advocate for empowerment, the board-certified plastic surgeon has hopes of changing the mindset of people struggling to find happiness, by doing her part to help them find it. One way Dr. Rednam does this is by posting motivating reels and quotes on social media, showing men and women everywhere that they are beautiful, loved, and appreciated.
On National Women’s Day (March 8th), she was highlighted in an Instagram post, where she posed for a stunning photoshoot. The post entailed a long, beautiful paragraph about Dr. Rednam, written by a talented photographer—and close friend of hers—from the Houston area (@jadeelizabethportraiture). In the paragraph, it was mentioned that Dr. Rednam is a woman who “genuinely inspires” and “breaks barriers” for other women, especially those within male-dominated industries. This post, amongst several others, have captured the true essence of Dr. Rednam’s mission; To make people feel special.
But, of course, there’s other ways she inspires people to be themselves.
In the last year, her gender affirming procedures have become widely popular. Gender affirmation—or affirmation surgery—is a type of surgery that provides transgender patients the kind of body they align with. These procedures give them the physical appearance of the gender they’ve always known themselves to be. According to Dr. Rednam, these are some of her favorite procedures to do, simply because they change people’s lives for the better—sometimes instantly!
Many studies have shown that gender affirmations have had a positive impact on overall self-confidence. Actually, most people who choose gender affirmation surgeries are reported to have improvements with their mental health and quality of life. The long-term satisfaction rate of gender affirmation surgery motivates Dr. Rednam’s practice (My Houston Surgeons) to put their best foot forward—as a collective team— every single time. And with thousands of people witnessing their amazing post-procedure videos on Dr. Rednam’s social media platforms, more patients are lining up to live their truth.
Evidently, Dr. Rednam’s ability to build relationships and liberate others resonates with her patients and social media followers. It ignites an inspirational spark in them that wasn’t quite there before. This doesn’t only impact them enough to appreciate her, but to love themselves more. Her plan is to in a small way positively impact mental health —by changing the way people look at themselves—is seemingly working one day at a time.
Dr. Rednam’s mission isn’t always easy, but according to the expert plastic surgeon, everything falls into place when you love what you do.
“I love every aspect of what I do.”, Dr. Rednam told our sources. “That’s what makes everything possible.”
