ABOUT Dr. Rukmini ‘Vinaya’ Rednam
I feel very lucky in life that events transpired to take me down the path to become a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. As a board certified plastic surgeon, I have had the opportunity to be a part of so many amazing men and women’s stories whether for cosmetic or reconstructive reasons.
I am very grateful to be able to be a part of the journey that individuals who are going through gender transitioning are on. It can often be difficult to find compassionate and caring surgeons, and I pride myself on being able to a trusted and warm individual with all my patients.
My philosophy as a plastic surgeon is that whether a patient is seeing me for a functional issue or a cosmetic concern from the start they are active and vital members of their own care team. I make every effort to listen to my patient’s concerns and goals, and together come up with a plan 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 my patients like I would a member of my own family.
After completion of my plastic surgery training, I spent an additional year in an aesthetics fellowship in Florida where I performed both top surgery (both removal and multiple techniques for augmentation) and body contouring for feminization and masculinization. I am able to provide education and surgical options for these body-affirming surgeries. As a team, Drs. Sturm, Rodman and I are committed to providing exceptional care while you are proceeding on your transitioning journey.
