Dr. Rednam offers a range of Surgical Body Procedures in The Woodlands and Houston, Texas. In addition to traditional body contouring procedures, Dr. Rednam also specializes in post-weight loss plastic surgery for bariatric patients and others who have lost significant weight.

Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a single surgery combining two or more body contouring procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, labiaplasty, Brazilian Butt Lift, and more to restore a pre-baby body and achieve a more shapely and youthful appearance.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat and sculpt the body. This popular procedure can be performed on the abdomen, arms, back, bra area, hips, thighs, knees, and under the chin. Liposuction is often performed with other surgical procedures for comprehensive body sculpting. Additionally, Dr. Rednam offers “Awake Liposuction” for select arm and neck procedures with no general anesthesia and less downtime.


VASERlipo is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that uses ultrasound energy to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. VASERlipo requires less downtime and is less painful than traditional liposuction.

High Definition Liposuction

High definition liposuction goes beyond traditional liposuction. In addition to removing stubborn pockets of fat, Dr. Rednam can use high definition liposuction to sculpt treated areas, refining contours and helping patients achieve a more toned, sculpted look with improved muscle definition.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery, also called abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to eliminate loose skin on the stomach and tighten abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck can be beneficial for people who have lost significant weight and can restore a flat stomach for women who have loose skin or separated ab muscles after pregnancy. This procedure is often combined with liposuction for optimized results.

Post Weight Loss Surgery

Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight often face loose skin at the end of their weight loss journey. Dr. Rednam is skilled in customized post-weight loss surgical treatment that can tighten loose skin and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat on the thighs, stomach, arms, and more.

Circumferential Body Lift

A circumferential body lift is an extensive surgical procedure to remove excess skin from the abdomen, sides, lower back, and buttocks for comprehensive body contouring. This procedure is typically performed on patients who have experienced major weight loss and are seeking a solution for significant loose skin.

Bra Line Lift

After massive weight loss, a bra line lift or upper back lift can remove excess skin, rolls, and fat to reveal dramatically improved contours. This procedure is popular with both male and female patients and yields instant results after outpatient surgery.

Arm Lift

Women are often frustrated by sagging skin on their upper arms, due to aging or weight loss. Arm lift surgery, also called brachioplasty, is a procedure to tighten sagging skin on the upper arm. An arm lift may also eliminate excess fat and reduce the size of the upper arm.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift aims to tighten loose skin on the upper legs, and it is often beneficial for patients who have experienced significant or rapid weight loss. Dr. Rednam offers horizontal or vertical thigh lift procedures, which can remove excess skin and reduce sagging for smoother thighs.


Labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation surgery to reduce the size of the inner labia. Women with labia that are naturally very long or have changed as a result of childbirth or aging may seek labiaplasty for aesthetic reasons or for functional purposes.

Labia Majora Volume Enhancement

Labia majora volume loss and laxity is a common occurrence for women as they age or after pregnancy. This can cause discomfort, irritation, and dryness, as well as affect self-confidence. Labia majora volume enhancement with structural fat grafting is a quick and effective treatment option that can restore youthful volume to the outer vaginal lips.


Monsplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the mons, a region located at the lower abdomen where it meets the upper part of the vulva in the pubic area. This procedure can be beneficial for women who have excess fatty tissue or excess skin on the mons due to factors such as weight loss or gain, genetics, or other reasons. Removing excess bulge in this area can provide relief from discomfort and embarrassment.
