Dr. Pravin Reddy

Medical Director

Dr. Pravin Reddy is a board-certified plastic surgeon and Medical Director of The Reddy Aesthetic Institute and SkynBar. Dr. Reddy’s goals are to create a practice based on high standards of integrity, best evidence, and patient safety in order to achieve a superior client/patient experience. He is a firm believer that superior training and evidence-based practices are the best ways to achieve best results. Consistent with this philosophy, Dr. Reddy continues to visit and learn from the leaders in plastic/aesthetic surgery.

Dr. Reddy, who is available for appointments every Thursday at SkynBar, completed his surgical training at some of the world’s premiere institutions, including Georgetown University Medical Center, McGill University, and Memorial Sloan Kettering.  In addition to his training in a variety of disciplines within plastic surgery, Dr. Reddy has an interest in aesthetic surgery as a natural extension of reconstructive plastic surgery.

 During his education and training, Dr. Reddy was awarded a US Surgical Grant and NIH Fellowship for basic science research. He is one of a handful of surgeons formally trained in microsurgery and has performed over 500 microsurgical reconstructive cases as a solo surgeon.  He is an experienced craniofacial surgeon and a member of the International Faculty of the AOCMF.

For the past several years, Dr. Reddy has shifted his focus from reconstructive surgery to aesthetic/cosmetic surgery. Dr. Reddy’s current interests in aesthetic surgery include face lifting, nose reshaping, breast surgery, and high-definition body sculpting.  The practice has a special interest in explant surgery of the breast. High-definition body sculpting is one of the signature procedures offered by Reddy Aesthetics and is the logical progression of liposuction. The procedure is specific to creating athletic physiques by framing muscle groups and not simply removal of fat. The skill to acquire this technique was the result of careful study and direct training from international leaders in the field of body sculpting.

Dr. Reddy holds full privileges in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Northside HospitalPiedmont Hospital, and Augusta Hospital.  He is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Bioengineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
