Physician/Peer Testimonials

I had the most amazing time in my preceptorship with Dr. Red. What can I say about aesthetic Vaginal surgery! It was an eye-opener, something beyond what I had imagined. There was a demand created (excellent marketing skills), patients were counseled (superb team), beautiful surgeries, patients’ needs were top priority & end results- truly breathtaking!

Coming from India, where prolapse is very common, I thought I had seen it all in Vaginal Reconstructive Surgery, but was pleasantly proved utterly wrong.

Dr. Red is an astounding surgeon. He thinks the case entirely through, is very clear about anatomic landmarks & is a bold surgeon. His operative skills are “par excellence” and he gives the patient his best…which is the best available. His mindset is of a plastic surgeon….He is soooo patient, every stitch is perfect, like poetry in motion. To top it all, the environment is so warm & friendly, making it so easy to communicate, have an open mind, & learn. If I could even put half of his efforts & skills into practice…I would feel I achieved. The experience was unique. To invite Dr. Red & his entire team to India would indeed be a pleasure. I really look forward a long association.

Warm Regards

Dr. Sejal Desai


I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the thorough, precise, candid experience you gave me during my course with you. The technical instruction I received far surpassed my expectations. I am impressed with, and grateful for, the amount of specific detail to which you provided me. I felt you completely opened up your practice, techniques and secrets to success and that was more than I could have hoped for. You welcomed my plethora of questions with smiles and honest answers.

What is truly amazing about your program is that the learning and support didn’t stop with the completion of my 3-day course. You graciously invited both me and my staff to return whenever needed to ask more questions or to do more observing. In addition, your offer of continued mentorship after our second visit was a pleasant and welcomed gesture.

The ability to learn from and observe several live surgical cases was invaluable. I am completely satisfied with my choice in your program. I evaluated several other programs and cannot imagine anyone being able to find a more valuable experience than the one my staff and I shared with you.

I wish you continued success and thank you immensely for the solid start you have provided me on my new venture.

Fondly,
Courtenay White, MD


After few years of practicing as a trained urogynecologist and reconstructive female pelvic surgeon, I decided to join Dr. Alinsod to explore the area of aesthetic vulvo-vaginal surgery in depth. I was so delight to find what I was looking for. The Private preceptorship with Dr Alinsod is the right choice for an optimal approach in dealing with such complex medical concerns by female patients. Dr Alinsod has a great personality and absolute dedication towards his patients and trainee. He is ready to share the finest details of his great surgical experience in the most humble manner. Taking this kind of training will surely put you on the track. Your future success depends on many things for which people vary a great deal. Remember “I can bring the horse to water, yet can’t force him do drink”. I highly recommend his private course and cordially thank him and his great team members, Laureen, Diane, Maria, JJ, for being so professional in making my experience such a memorable one. There is no better program around.


In June 2010 I had the privilege of spending two days observing six pelvic support, sexual enhancement and genital cosmetic procedures at the hands of a gifted and innovative surgeon.

Although I am a long-experienced gynecologic, genital plastic and female cosmetic surgeon, and both teach and lecture on the subject, the two days I spent with Red were flush with new ideas about technique, helpful and innovative equipment, and office set-up. I was treated like an honored guest by both Dr. Alinsod and his kind and efficient staff.



I recommend Dr. Alinsod as a surgeon, an innovator, a mentor and a “mensch.” To prospective trainees, I would recommend him as a gifted teacher who unquestionably “has his act together” when it comes to one-on-one training in all aspects of, and innovation in, women’s genital plastic, cosmetic and pelvic support surgery. His courses are well organized; Red is very giving of his time, experience, and technique, including the important aspects of in-office analgesia/anesthesia, marketing, purchasing (capital expenditures and disposables) and office setup for these procedures.

July 30, 2011-- I highly recommend Dr. Alinsod’s Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery Course. His willingness to share advanced techniques, surgical pearls, and vast experience make the course an exceptional learning experience. The course is well organized and case observations are excellent. The extensive syllabus, office forms, and supportive materials reinforce the training experience and provide a valued resource for review and reference. It has been my privilege to work with Dr. Alinsod on a number of occasions now and each time I leave with a vast improvement of my knowledge, and skills. He is truly an innovator in the field.

Throughout my life I have had the opportunity to learn from industry icons that not only are leaders in their fields but develop them as well. These experiences have proven invaluable. Dr. Alinsod is one such individual. His foresight, innovation, and personality provided a great learning experience that has furthered my knowledge and skills in Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery. The opportunity to learn from a truly exceptional vaginal surgeon cannot be over emphasized. His ability to teach his innovative techniques, and explain complex concepts makes his preceptor experience second to none. With a well-organized staff, excellent operating facilities, and great location, I am left with only one question, “When can I go back.”



I am practicing gynecology in Istanbul, Turkey. Since the beginning of my career, my interest was in aesthetic surgery and after specializing in gynecology, I sought to specialize in both aesthetic vaginal and pelvic floor surgery. For a long time, I dug deep into the internet for someone who provided a teaching course and found Dr. Alinsod. I decided to take his Aesthetic Vulvovaginal Surgery course because of his world-renowned reputation on this subject. I researched all the training programs available in the U.S. and the world and found out that Dr. Alinsod’s program is second to none. It is the best teaching available for learning the new field of aesthetic vaginal surgery. His expertise in both reconstructive vaginal surgery and aesthetic vaginal surgery and in urogynecology makes the decision easy and sound. He has invented most everything that is new in the field of aesthetic vaginal surgery. Why go elsewhere when you can go to the source of brilliant techniques. So I flew over 20 hours to California for this opportunity.

When I came to Laguna Beach, I met a kind, helpful, and happy person. We were instant friends. He infused his surgical skills into me and taught me his finer points on aesthetic vulvovaginal and pelvic floor surgery. We did cases for an entire week mostly in his office. Amazing feats of surgery with the patient awake and comfortable, truly useful in countries such as mine where cost savings are very important. He showed me an amazing new technique for hymenoplasty which will be helpful to those nations that are doing hymenoplasty in large numbers. You would be surprised about the innovation of his technique and the fantastic results he has achieved with this surgery. Patients from all over the Middle East and the world travel to Laguna Beach to take advantage of Dr. Alinsod’s compulsion for perfection.

I thank Dr. Alinsod for his kindness, for his smiling face and hospitality. I greatly appreciate the time he spent with me. We will be friends for life and I look forward to Dr. Alinsod’s visits to Europe. I would also like to thank Laureen, Tasha, Maria and Diane. I hope to meet you again in the near future.



As an OB/GYN physician who has practiced aesthetic and wellness medicine for the past 10 years, I can say that Dr. Alinsod’s course in cosmetic vaginal surgery is a true highlight of my postgraduate medical training. Dr. Alinsod emphasizes the surgical techniques first and foremost, without complicating the surgery with needless extra steps that do not improve the results. There is absolutely no pressure to buy proprietary equipment. His techniques are well-presented in a very logical manner and demonstrated so clearly and meticulously that any motivated physician can learn these procedures and practice them in their office with great results.

Moreover, the extensive syllabus and office forms (both in print and digital) reinforce the training and have allowed for the smooth addition of this service into my practice. I felt that after this training course, I learned how to adapt my current surgical technique to perform labiaplasty and vaginoplasty in my office with great results, and market the service effectively to my patients. Dr. Alinsod’s course is truly the first choice for any physician looking to add cosmetic vaginal surgery to his practice.

    When I decided to train in vaginal aesthetic surgery, I was looking for a training complementary to pelvic floor surgery. I'm sure I found the world expert in this field with you: combined pelvic floor reconstructive surgery and vaginal-perineal cosmetic surgery.That was so great and your training was highly above my expectations in this field. Even though I am already an accomplished expert urogynecologist and pelvic floor surgeon and am in the forefront of reconstructive pelvic surgery in Belgium, I was very impressed the way you organized this course with professional efficiency and with the assistance of all your team. Specifically, I was fascinated by performing all these procedures under local anesthesia in very safe conditions. Also your surgical skill and instruments (Alinsod's retractor) allowed me to perform this surgery alone without an assistant. But of course not without Maria!

    So all of this was sure a valuable investment for me, and my long journey to visit you was really worth while! .

    I want to thank you, Red, and all your staff for the kindness and hospitality during my stay. For sure-- you have a friend in Belgium!



    I am a board certified gynecologist and have been in private practice in Greenwich, Connecticut for over 25 years. I have specialized in sexual enhancement surgery since 2003 and have performed well over 1000 procedures covering vaginoplasty, labial reduction, labia majora reduction and hymenoplasty. Almost all of these surgeries have been undertaken with a diode optical laser with very satisfactory results. However, I felt it was time to bring my skills to the next level. I found Dr. Red Alinsod of Laguna Beach, California, who pioneered a different and unique approach to aesthetic vaginal procedures using radiosurgery with the Ellman Surgitron®.

    I worked two very full days with Red in a one-on-one preceptorship, learning his techniques for surgery under local anesthesia, use of fine suture materials, and how to make precision incisions with radiosurgical instruments resulting in a 90% reduction in lateral thermal damage that I found so problematic with the laser. We used radiosurgery with the Ellman Surgitron® for reduced post-operative discomfort, minimal scar formation, enhanced healing and excellent cosmetic results. Within 10 days I incorporated all of these newly learned skills into my practice and was delighted not only with the immediate cosmetic results but with the significant reduction in post-operative discomfort experienced by my patients. Most importantly of course, patients were extremely pleased with the results. A patient who I previously performed laser reduction labiaplasty couldn’t believe how comfortable she was immediately after a subsequent vaginoplasty.

    Individualized training with Dr. Alinsod was not inexpensive, and I had my reservations before committing to work with him. Those doubts were completely dispelled. Red is a terrific teacher and has showed me how to provide a much higher level of aesthetic surgery for my patients. His training is unquestionably worth the cost.

    I am delighted to be have been given the opportunity to attend Dr. Alinsods course in Laguna Beach, California. I had the pleasure of first meeting Dr. Alinsod at the CAVS conference in Arizona and was very much impressed with his enthusiasm and dedication to the field of aesthetic gynecology. His love and commitment for the ongoing improvement of this specialty was apparent immediately.

    It was somewhat of a daunting task trying to decide which course to attend. There were many available all of which vary significantly in cost. Dr. Alinsods course is a bit more expensive than others but as the saying goes “you get what you pay for”.

    His course imparts both organizational skills and leadership qualities second to none, as well as providing the insight into refined techniques and invaluable information on guidelines and protocols needed to build and pursue a safe practice in aesthetic/cosmetic gynecology.

    Dr. Alinsod is an enthusiastic and conscientious teacher who showed commitment beyond what I could have ever expected. Without hesitation, I cannot recommend his course more strongly.
