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 b oard certified gynecologist practicing in Reno NV with a very talented and progressive group of physicians. Our interests include general gynecology, minimally invasive surgery, urogynecology with pelvic reconstruction and in-office procedures. I first met Dr. Alinsod about 5 years ago when I came to watch him do pelvic reconstruction with permanent mesh. I was “wowed” by his surgical skills, compassionate and caring nature, and his teaching style. He made it easy for me to adopt his practical, innovative, and brilliant approach to pelvic reconstruction. Over the past 5 years, our group has been using the “Alinsod technique” for vaginal reconstruction with great results. After reviewing his data on the Restorelle mesh presented at AAGL in 2008, we decided to visit again to gain further insight on his current techniques and pearls regarding pelvic reconstruction and urethral slings. Mpathy sponsored the day with Dr. Alinsod and his delightful staff and we found this course to be very helpful and enlightening. He also tickled our interest in aesthetic vaginal surgery and invited us to take his training course.
I took the aesthetic vaginal surgery course with Dr. Alinsod and gained even greater respect for him. The course was fascinating, informative, comprehensive, unbelievable, tailored, professional, and …FUN! The amount of information provided was incredible and beyond generous. The enthusiasm that Dr. Alinsod has in this area of his practice is contagious. During the course, I kept trying to process all the pearls and tools and how I could apply them to my practice as soon as possible. While the surgeries were impressive and packed full of tricks and tips for success, the supporting information regarding setting up this kind of practice was equally helpful. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Alinsod and learn from a true master and pioneer in the field of vaginal surgery. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in aesthetic vaginal surgery and believe that the investment will be returned many-fold!
I am a reconstructive and female urologist in the San Fernando Valley and Beverly Hills and was fortunate to attend a private preceptorship in aesthetic vaginal surgery with Dr. Red Alinsod. You will reliably begin your training with high expectations regarding the quality of the training due to the cost of the program, but you will certainly not be disappointed and will likely leave only wishing you had attended sooner. From the beginning of your experience to the end, you will feel that Dr. Alinsod has painstakingly crafted his unique program only for you and that he has carefully chosen surgical patients, during your training, who demonstrate the spectrum of functional and aesthetic challenges.
I sought out Dr. Alinsod to provide comprehensive aesthetic vaginal training to complement my formal training and expertise in repair of pelvic prolapse and urinary incontinence. The surgical experience was terrific, beginning with discovering Red’s approach to augmented mesh prolapse repairs. Even the most seasoned pelvic reconstructive surgeons will discover surgical pearls from Red and I am already using some of the pearls I have “stolen” from Red. The days in the office are a mix of surgically relevant and carefully thought out lectures and observation of Red’s surgical methods. He is a consummate surgical instructor and a gentleman. Red has “opened up” his secrets for developing a successful aesthetic practice that focuses on surgical excellence and compassionate care. It is as close to a turn-key practice addition as one could hope to achieve.
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.

My experience working with Dr. Alinsod was extremely rewarding from both an educational and financial standpoint. The surgical training I received allowed me to immediately begin introducing vaginal rejuvenation procedures to my office practice safely with high patient satisfaction.
The value of “ in office” cosmetic vaginal surgery provides an opportunity to manage one’s time in a more efficient and economical manner.
Eliminating the reliance on insurance reimbursement is liberating.
He provides a comprehensive program with precise surgical technique and unique technical approaches to the restoration of the female pelvic floor.
He is truly defined by the statement “ a scholar and a gentleman”.
I have continued to consult Dr. Alinsod since my training and he eagerly responds and provides helpful hints and solutions to complex anatomical issues.
I highly recommend the “ one on one” teaching experience and the marketing information which is needed to successfully develop a cosmetic vaginal practice.
