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.

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.?
