MY RESULTS ARE AMAZING
My results are amazing. I literally would not change a single thing – NOT A SINGLE THING! Dr. Alinsod answered all of my questions and was always available, via email, before and after surgery. The procedure itself was a breeze and recovery was not nearly as bad as I expected (in fact, it wasn’t bad at all). You will not be disappointed if you choose Dr. Alinsod. He is a true artist and true professional.

FROM A GRATEFUL NEW YORKER
I will never be able to adequately put into words how you have changed my life. Not only did you eradicate the physical and emotional pain that plagued me for years, but the beautiful work you did instilled a confidence in me that I have not felt since I was young. I always felt like I looked abnormal, and on top of that I experienced immense discomfort and pain on a daily basis. I was even teased by my first boyfriend for the way that I looked, which absolutely scarred me and made me feel like I could never be intimate again. For years I was traumatized and battled with internal anxiety, avoiding relationships in order to avoid the pain and embarrassment of feeling judged. I felt completely helpless and alone, thinking I would never feel normal or have a healthy relationship, if any relationship at all.
All of that completely changed when I found you. Not only is your bedside manner the best I have ever experienced, but the attention you give to your patients is absolutely remarkable. Each time I had surgery with you, it felt more like I was going to a day spa than a medical facility. It all started with Diane at the front desk, who was always incredibly sweet and more than helpful, and Maria, whose gentle and nurturing presence made me feel like I had my mom with me during surgery. It all ends with you, one of the most talented doctors I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Your work is the epitome of precision, a hybrid of science and beauty that is nonexistent outside the realm of your practice. Despite having an abundance of patients constantly demanding your time, you somehow managed to make me feel like I had your full attention, like I was your only patient. I felt cared for and I felt important. During the healing process when I had a lot of questions and worries, you immediately responded and constantly reassured me that everything was going to be okay.
Dr. Alinsod, you are not just a doctor, you are not just an artist, and you are not just a kind, hardworking, intelligent, innovative human being. No word or title can entirely depict who you are and what you do, so all I can say is thank you. Thank you for lifting the emotional and physical burdens I carried for years. Thank you for transforming me, for making me feel beautiful. And thank you for being a catalyst in the growth of self-confidence I have lacked for the majority of my adult life. I don’t think you will ever truly know the magnitude of the impact you have on the lives of your patients. I am truly honored and grateful to know you.
Thank you for everything, Dr. Alinsod.

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!
FROM ANONYMOUS AND GRATEFUL
My experience at your office was absolutely amazing. I have never felt so welcomed at an office. And when I say that, I don’t just mean welcomed by you, I mean by you and your ENTIRE STAFF. Everyone at your office is amazing, and incredibly comforting. You weren’t the first doctor I considered, but you were the last. I knew the moment I walked in, saw your results, and received the warm welcome you and your staff gave me. Everyone treated me as if I were their own daughter going into surgery. My mom was with me, and to be honest, I though I was blessed to have her there, she didn’t need to be. Thats how truly great everyone made me feel.
I cried after the surgery, I cried tears of joy due to my amazing results. I was so uncomfortable, for so many years. I don’t mean to sound vain, but I was afraid to do anything sexually, I was embarrassed, I was uncomfortable, and 10 months after the surgery, I can tell you I feel GREAT. The results are remarkable. Especially considering the little time frame I experienced some pain and discomfort. After a month I was pretty much completely back to normal in every way. And after 3 months, I was back in the gym, had a boyfriend (which I was afraid to have prior to the surgery), and CONFIDENT.
I never, ever, in my life thought I would be confident enough to have sex. My life changed after this surgery, for the better. I was so afraid to move forward in life and nearly haunted by my outer lips. I know it sounds dumb but what can I do? It’s how I feel. There’s nothing I can do about how I genuinely feel and have felt since i was about 13. I am 21 and was 21 going into the surgery. I was terrified. But EVERYTHING went great. Like I said, I was thoroughly taken care of by you and your staff before and after the surgery. If results aren’t exactly what you want them to be, post op, you will help to get us there. It’s not an easy surgery, and nothing will ever be perfect, but your team will not stop until I am happy.
I can’t thank the office and you, Dr. Alinsod, enough for what you’ve done for me. I am so fortunate to have had a great experience and I wouldn’t recommend another surgeon to do my labial surgery anywhere else. I If I lived far I would fly to Los Angeles to get it done with you if necessary. You are the best. Your staff is the best. Like any surgery, this is a serious one and not to be messed with. Nobody should walk into any office and rush into it. I don’t want to mention any names but I did sit down with a big Beverly Hills doctor prior to meeting you and I’ll tell ya, I left hysterical and in tears. The meeting made me extremely uncomfortable. I felt like the staff and the doctor didn’t give 2 craps about who I was, the meeting was the least bit personable, and I was just another young girl getting vagina surgery done. That’s honestly how I felt. I was devastated! Here I was, at the so called best office in LA, and I had a gut feeling something was off. I did my research and met with you and was immediately comfortable. I drove from LA to Laguna Beach to meet with you, and eventually get my surgery done, and boy, it was worth it. I want to thank you, Dr. Alinsod, and your staff because they are truly amazing. This isn’t an easy process, but 3 months down the road, my life has changed for the better. I am not encouraging surgery but if it’s something other women must do, as I have done, I am encouraging all to go to you, Dr. Alinsod. Go ahead and let others read this heart felt letter.

About 4 years ago I noticed a marked vaginal looseness. This became a very bothersome problem for me. I spoke with my primary care doctor who prescribed kegel exercises. This obviously did not work, as it does not work for most women unless they are 20 years old and never had children. I then spoke with my gynecologist who told me that the surgery to tighten my vagina was possible with a price tag of about 27,000 dollars. I was very upset. If you are reading this and considering this surgery, you already know my frustrations. I started Googling “vaginal tightening” and luckily found and clicked on Dr. Alinsod’s website. I called and spoke to Diane who immediately was able to set up an appointment for a consultation and surgery the same day because I would be on vacation down in southern California at the time. I live in the Northeast and had to fly in.
I was met at the door by Maria who is wonderful, very understanding and down to earth. She made me feel very relaxed. Dr. Alinsod walked in and I was so impressed. He mixed professionalism with humor and understanding. He made me feel instantly relaxed. The vaginalplasty surgery went wonderfully. At this time Dr. Alinsod said I was also a good candidate for labia plasty. At the time this was not important and I choose not to do it.
I can honestly say I did not follow the “healing plan”. The next day I went to Universal Studios with my family and went on a lot of rides. This was not a good idea. I caused some stitches to rip. Within 3 weeks I had to go back to see Dr. Alinsod and have him re-stitch me. He did this happily and free of charge. After 6 weeks I questioned how I was healing and went back down to Southern California to see him. Dr. Alinsod believed I was healing great and told me I was fine. After a few more weeks I emailed Dr. Alinsod and told him I was not as “tight” as I had hoped to be. He told me if I was unhappy, he would make me “good as new” and would also perform labiaplasty on me free of charge because it was a training day for him. It was extremely nice of him to do the extra surgery for me. I am now a couple weeks into the healing process and I am doing great. The surgery site looks terrific! This time I am taking it easy.
I have never met a more professional and kind doctor. He responds to all emails lightening fast and always is patient and kind. He is a true gift to his profession. He gives women a fresh start where others cannot. He is a pioneer in vaginal plastic surgery and goes where 99% of all other doctors will not. His staff is understanding, patient and kind. I would recommend him to ANY woman who wants a fresh start and who wants to feel like the woman she once was or had always wanted to be. Thank you Dr. Alinsod, you are a diamond on a beach of stones.

FROM NURSE IN O.C.
I had surgery the first week of February months after my husband died. I was vulnerable and frightened. The initial HMO physician assigned had not inspired much confidence. After an additional consultation, I made the decision to utilize another Cigna provider; Dr. Red Alinsod. From day one, this physician made me feel comfortable. His track record (easily found on the Internet) along with the praises from staff members did not do him justice. This is a warm and competent physician. I sailed through the initial surgery and recovery with minimum discomfort and minimum recovery time. The additional procedure done with his assistant (Maria Islas) in his office last Thursday again, proved how skilled this doctor is. I was informed at every step before and closely followed after each procedure afterwards. His staff, and especially his assistant Maria Islas, are well trained, professional, kind and courteous. I am a registered nurse. I have been in the healthcare industry and licensed since 1971. I do healthcare for a living. I am very aware of the subtle nuances of good patient care. My hat is off to this type of customer service. In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to say “thank you” to Maria and to Doctor. I am very grateful…this physician saved me from a world of urinary track infections, embarrassment and discomfort not to mention preserving my good health. You Rock Doc.
