Patient Testimonials (p2)

Thank you too Sir. It has always amazed me how such a excellent doctor would have time to email his patients. You know, we never get to talk directly with our doctor unless it is by paid appointment but I have actually been able to communicate with you and you actually reply me. That has always been amazing to me. Thank you so much for somehow making time to do that. I absolutely honestly don’t know how you do it but I am so grateful. You are a very kind doctor and I appreciate all you have done for me. You definitely stand out unlike any doctor I have ever encountered. You will always have patients because it is not just a job but you earn their trust and you are sincere. You can’t fake that. Thank you so much for being who you are and for picking a job you seem to love. You make a world of difference.

Finally Decided to Do Something
At 36 years of age, I finally decided to do something about my uncomfortable and painfully enlarged labia minora. Living in Los Angeles, I felt a great advantage in finding the best doctor who specialized in labiaplasty and aesthetic vaginal surgery. Hence, I found a popular doctor in Beverly Hills who is considered elite and profound with his gynecological surgical work in laser technology. I had a consultation, and even scheduled my pre-‐op and surgery. Listening to my intuition, I decided to search the internet to watch various videos of the labiaplasty surgery. In doing so, I found Dr. Alinsod and I was so impressed with his specialized high frequency radio waves technology, as opposed to the laser technology. For me, I wanted local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia, and I wanted to drive home rather than having to depend on someone to drive me home. Immediately, I knew that I needed to consult with Dr. Alinsod because he is the pioneer of the radio waves technology for gynecological surgeries and is one of a select few in California able to perform this unique technique. So, I drove one hour to his beautiful beach front office and received the best consultation imaginable. All my questions were answered in detail and his staff made me feel at home and welcomed. With only two and half weeks before my laser labiaplasty with the Beverly Hills doctor near my home in Los Angeles, I canceled and decided to have my radio wave labiaplasty surgery with Dr. Alinsod in Laguna Beach. He personally answered all my emails of pertinent questions prior to my surgery date, which I thought was refreshing and attentive. His staff, Laureen, also emailed me the Patient Brochure which included substantial information, visual pictures, and heartfelt testimonials from satisfied patients.
I opted not to take pain narcotics and anti-‐anxiety medication during the surgery and was completely alert while Dr. Alinsod performed my labiaplasty. In fact, after the local numbing cream and local anesthetic was applied, I felt little to no pain, and conversed with Dr. Alinsod and his staff, while even watching some television during my labiaplasty. His staff, Janette and Maria ensured that my comfort level was optimal and even provided me a mirror to see the progress and completion results of the surgery. Maria, thanks for also extending a hand of comfort and assurance. By holding my hand, your nurturing aura maintained my feeling of ease. Once the surgery was over, my vital signs were taken, and I independently drove home safe and securely. I thought I would need the ibuprofen, but the numbing cream and ice was sufficient for my tolerance level. I emailed Dr. Alinsod and thanked him tremendously for changing my life.On day two, I felt no pain, but continued to ice continuously. Janette extended a warm courtesy call to make sure all was well. Thanks Janette. I feel very thankful to have had my labiaplasty by Dr. Alinsod because my results are natural, exceptional, and stellar. Most of all, any prior discomfort from having 36 years of enlarged labia has vanished. I appreciate the comradery amongst Dr. Alinsod and his staff. And I certainly appreciate the superior expertise of Dr. Alinsod…You are the best! Affectionately, I have ascribed an adjective for each stage of my experience: 1. Consultation; Personable 2. Pre-‐Op; Informative 3. Surgery; Interactive 4. Post-‐Op; Functional. If anyone wants to feel confident about proceeding with a gynecological surgery, Dr. Alinsod is an extraordinary choice for successful results.
Best Regards, JB
Beyond Happy with the Results
There are no words for how pleased I am with the results from my surgery. Being a model, it was very important to me that I selected the very best doctor and after a long, extensive search, I chose Dr. Alinsod. He was the best choice. I am beyond happy with the results. Dr. Alinsod is in a league of his own. He is a surgeon’s surgeon. I would gladly recommend anyone to him and I am so lucky, grateful, elated that he was the doctor that helped me. Thanks Dr. A! — JS
PS. I should mention my photographer friend who’s seen a lot of women, down there, told me I have one of the prettiest ones he has ever seen!

You deserve much financial and personal success in your life. The impact you’ve had on my life is tremendous! I don’t know what kind of an emotional state id be in now if I hadn’t had the revision. I am very happy with the results. Give Janet and tasha my reguards. I will miss having an excuse to call them, they are such lovely ladies. Best of luck to you all.
For many year I researched labiaplasty surgery and had numerous consultations, asked questions, and finally went to a plastic surgeon in La Jolla, CA. The plastic surgeon claimed to have done “many” labial surgeries among with her tummy tucks, faces, and breasts. Two weeks after surgery, I felt some stitches had come out and that something was terribly wrong. I should have trusted my gut instinct and went with a full time vaginal surgeon instead of a part time vaginal surgeon. The nurse at the plastic surgeons’ office gave me some instructions, which I followed completely, but I kept insisting something was amiss. Two weeks later a revision was done under a poorly done local anesthesia and I felt the entire procedure and was in pain. After the revision healed my labia were like flaps and were barely attached by thin strands. Now the well-known La Jolla surgeon changed from a nice professional to one with attitude and indifference. It was hurtful.
I was terrified to try and find the right surgeon to fix this bad result. There are many doctors who advertised performing labiaplasty but not fixing or revising them. It makes you wonder who are actually formally trained in labial surgery? I was very fortunate to find Dr. Red Alinsod as the expert in labial revision surgery. His credentials are as a vaginal surgeon first and foremost, not a breast or face or tummy expert but simply a world renowned vaginal surgeon. He responded immediately to emails and even gave his opinion on photos of my result without charge. He was a very compassionate person which made a huge difference. During my consultation with Dr. Alinsod he could not understand why I had been sutured the way I was or why the plastic surgeon approached the surgery in the manner she did. He spent a great deal of time with me to ease my fears and give me the options of how to go about fixing the labia. He told me how the blood supply to the labia minora varies greatly and how Wedge or Z-Plasty labiaplasties and skin removal techniques are prone to improper healing and “holes” and dangling tissues. After many discussions and emails I finally had Dr. Alinsod re-do my labiaplasty and I have not looked back with any regrets. I chose to have the “Barbie” technique, which Dr. Alinsod developed and perfected, as my revision procedure. I just wished I had gone to him first and not for the revision. It was a long and painful procedure to remove the old stitches and scar tissue left by my original surgeon but it has been worth the effort. My labia now are beautiful and natural looking. You cannot tell anyone had done surgery on me. My own doctors cannot tell.
My original labiaplasty and time of revision were two years apart and that time in between was very trying for me, emotionally and physically. Not only was Dr. Alinsod compassionate but he was professional as well. He never rushed me. My situation was not passed off as “No Big Deal.” I loved Dr. Alinsod’s care for me and think the world of him. I am now very happy with my labial appearance and feel a great deal of confidence to move forward with my life. Thank you Dr. Alinsod for not only your professionalism and expert hands but for your empathy and understanding.
Like many of his patients who travel many miles and over many states to see him, I now travel more than an hour to see him for my routine gynecology and aesthetic needs and I do so with a smile. Save time, money, and personal grief and have Dr. Alinsod as your surgeon. I am willing to speak with you personally about Dr. Alinsod and his team.
