Happy Healthcare Professional in Denver

I wanted to give you a bit more explanation as to why I traveled from Denver to see you for surgery after we talked at my appointment earlier today. When I am fully recovered I would love to write a testimonial for you and here is why. There are several urogyns in Colorado but none of them compare in terms of skill, experience, procedures offered, etc. There just weren’t any perfect fits in Colorado. None have your exact training and experience. There were other small issues like doctors that only used biologic mesh, don’t like using mesh, etc. One office in Denver I spoke with always does hysterectomies with any kind of uterine prolapse, as a standard. Others have different ways of doing vault repairs. I know there are other ways to perform medicine, but the protocols you follow best fit what I was personally comfortable with. You have pioneered how many things are done with prolapse surgery which says a lot about how a surgeon thinks and how adept he/she is skill wise. Your experience in the field and expertise with teaching means a lot too. Then add being able to perform cosmetic gynecology as well. I wasn’t able to find any urogyn in Colorado or the immediate surrounding states that had all the components mentioned. You also have wonderful (awesome!) bedside manner, which really puts patients at ease and instills confidence in them. There was no question in my mind that it was a good decision for me to come out to California for surgery.

I have appreciated my experience while under your care. Tell all of your great staff thank you as well. They are kind, professional, organized, and thorough. I am recovering with much more ease this time and I am thankful for that. Take care and thank you,

Thank you for the new and improved me!

I will refer not only my friends but also family to Dr. Red Alinsod. He has not only fixed my problems but has made me more confident and happy with my body. I have two children and experienced 4th degree tearing with the first. Being a registered nurse I knew that there was something wrong but never took the time to care for myself. I finally got enough courage to see Dr. Red and I am very thankful I did. He treats you like a person not a patient and he listens to your concerns and validates them. I chose Dr. Red because of his outstanding reputation throughout Orange County. His office staff accomidated my needs. Always giving me time to voice my questions and concerns. I am very happy with my surgery.

Thank you for the new and improved me!

Sincerely, LF

I am originally from the Middle East and in my mid-twenties. After my child was born, some things just weren’t the same (ladies you know what I mean!). But of all the changes my body was going through, this was one that I couldn’t stand. I eventually got the guts to say enough, and do something about it (after trying a billion Kegels with no results!) I had a consultation with Dr. Alinsod and shortly after I decided to go with the vaginoplasty, and perineoplasty. The first week after the procedure was tough, but then it just healed nicely and really changed my life! My partner feels a great difference and the procedure was definitely worth it for the both of us.

Dr. Alinsod is very professional and experienced and really did a wonderful job making me feel more like my pre-baby self again!

words can’t express how grateful I am to Dr. Alinsod and his staff

Because I was so afraid of having surgery, I lived with a prolapse bladder and in need of a hysterectomy for years. About three months ago it became clear that I couldn’t wait any longer. My symptoms finally scared me more than my fear of surgery.

My primary doctor recommended Dr. Alinsod. I left my first appointment with extreme confidence in Dr. Alinsod, and much calmer about having surgery.

Seven weeks ago Dr. Alinsod did a bladder, rectal repair, and a complete hysterectomy on me. My recovery was amazing for this 78 year old. I never had pain in the surgery area, and had to keep telling myself to take it easy as instructed.

As I remember the years of misery and annoyance I went through, I now wonder why I waited so long. The surgery has made a marked improvement in my quality of life, and words can’t express how grateful I am to Dr. Alinsod and his staff.

I would highly recommend Dr. Alinsod!

When I decided that labiaplasty was a procedure that I wished to pursue, I carefully researched the credentials of many physicians that offered this procedure and I quickly recognized that Dr. Alinsod was clearly highly and uniquely qualified (being both board certified in gynecology and trained in this type of an aesthetic procedure). I had the procedure in early January. Prior to the surgery I met with Dr. Alinsod and his extremely kind and professional staff. As soon as I met each of them and Dr. Alinsod, I realized that there was a sincere kindness and professionalism in how they treated their patients, and that I was in very good care. Even then, however, I did not realize how skilled my surgeon actually was. I have had many dental procedures that I only wish could have gone so well. Pain and swelling were minimal and medications that Dr. Alinsod prescribed for pain management were highly effective. My recovery was very quick. The improvement in appearance and comfort is striking. I am quite sure that no one (even another surgeon) would not be able to recognize that I had the procedure done, as there is no scar at all. I truly cannot thank Dr. Alinsod enough for the quality of surgery and care that I got. — MB

I would highly recommend Dr. Alinsod! He is incredibly detailed and it’s obvious that he takes great pride in his work and loves what he does. His staff is fantastic, they always made sure I was comfortable and they were all very nice and answered all my questions with great detail. He’s extremely personable and makes you feel at ease right away…..something most surgeons don’t do. “I’m extremely happy with the outcome and I would recommend Dr. Alinsod without hesitation.”

Dr. Red Alinsod is a caring and compassionate physician

Dr. Red Alinsod is a caring and compassionate physician that has helped change my personal outlook on life. For years I suffered low self-esteem due to the appearance of my vaginal area brought on by the ravages of childbearing. Not only did I leak urine but my labia were quite enlarged and caused irritation and pain. I could not wear jeans or tight clothing and wearing a swimsuit made me feel very self-conscious. I asked friends and family and medical professionals who I should see and all suggested I get in contact with Dr. Alinsod. I have never regretted my decision to seek out his opinion and to go ahead with my aesthetic surgery. I underwent a labial reduction, laser perineorrhapy, and vaginal tightening that has resulted in my renewed sense of youth. Some would call this “vaginal rejuvenation.” I am in my mid 40s and but my private areas are 21 years old again! I am so pleased and happy even more so than my husband who is quite impressed with the surgical results. I feel like a new woman not afraid to dress any way I please and no longer am I self-conscious because I have made the right decision to choose Dr. Alinsod to be my personal aesthetic surgeon for my most private of parts. — NR

I decided to have labiaplasty because I was embarrassed about the size of my labia minora, they were too big. I wanted to feel sexy, and I could not feel that way with my inner lips the way they were. I don’t have a lot of money, so when I saw an ad for this very inexpensive place called San Dimas Surgical Center, I thought this sounded like a good choice. The first thing that should have raised a red flag that this wasn’t the ideal place to have surgery was the fact that on the website there wasn’t any information about the doctor who would be performing my surgery, namely his expertise, which should never be the case with any surgical procedure. To be honest, I just thought this was a common procedure often performed, and it never crossed my mind that anything could go so terribly wrong. After the surgery, I noticed a difference between my two inner lips immediately, but I thought maybe it was just the swelling and it would all end up looking normal after a couple of months. Well, a couple of months passed, and it just ended up looking worse. One side was still very big, and the other side was very short and bumpy, with notches of skin through out. I felt totally scarred and deformed, and what’s worse I thought it would be a permanent problem. I even thought I might have to give up sex because it looked so awful. I was very depressed and worried. This is were I started doing some research and I wanted to find, this time, the best in the business. I came across South Coast Urogynecology, and took a look at Dr. Alisond’s work. His pictures of labiaplasty procedures were the best I’d ever seen, so smooth, so natural. Based on his pictures, I thought if anybody can help me, it has to be him. And sure enough, when I met Dr. Alisond he made me feel so at ease, he is such a gentleman, and so in touch with what a woman needs. He assured me that he could help me, and those news, to a woman who felt so incredibly hopeless up to that point, were music to my ears. My final results are incredible. I am so smooth down there, that I don’t even think any man would ever notice I had anything done! I’m very satisfied with my results. If I could do this procedure over again, I would never again choose a doctor based on price. I would, without a doubt, choose Dr. Alisond. He is very experienced at what he does, and has a great staff, most notibly, Maria, his assistant, who was always so nice and reassuring. If you are considering labiaplasty, please choose wisely, this is such a complex procedure, and you should only let the most experienced surgeon work on such a delicate and important area to us women. Thank You Dr. Alinsod!!! — C
