About Red Alinsod:

Dr. Red Alinsod is a Gynecologist practicing in Laguna Beach, California. Dr. Alinsod specializes in aesthetic vaginal surgery, gynecology, urogynecology, vulvovvaginal surgery, aesthetic laser treatments, and pelvic reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Alinsod earned his Medical Degree from Loma Linda University School of Medicine and completed his OB/GYN residency from Loma Linda University Medical Center. He was the first Rutledge Fellow at MD Anderson Cancer and Tumor Institute and was also a Galloway Fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Medical Center.

Dr. Alinsod was accepted into Yale’s Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship, but was unable to attend due to his military commitment with the US Air Force. During his time in the US Air Force, Dr. Alinsod was able to continue his medical training by being a part of the Gynecological Services at George Air Force Base in California and at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, as he concentrated on benign gynecology, urogynecology, and pelvic surgery.

From his 12-years in the military, he was able to train extensively in hysteroscopic and advanced laparoscopic surgery and also became one of the first Fellows of the Accreditation Council of Gynecologic Endoscopy. Dr. Alinsod left the Air Force as a Major and then went on to join Facey Medical Group in Southern California. He was on the Board of Directors at Facey, Chaired Risk Management, and was a Pension Trustee. He also spent time training residents and urogynecology fellows from UCLA as well as a large cadre of physicians who flew in for his very successful preceptorships.

Later in 2004, the South Coast Medical Center in Laguna Beach appointed Dr. Alinsod in charge of developing the Women’s Center and leading the urogynecology services. Since then, he has dedicated his efforts to expanding South Coast Urogynecology, Inc. This unique center of excellence has served the women of Orange County with distinction. It has become the one center able to cater to the needs of women from annual pap and physicals, incontinence and prolapse treatments, to bioidentical hormones and menopause, and to aesthetic labial and vaginal surgery.

Dr. Alinsod has developed many patents and inventions, including the world’s most commonly used device for vaginal surgery, the Lone Star APS Vaginal Retractor. He is the owner of the patent for “Sling with Bladder Support” that most pelvic reconstruction kits are based on. He also owns the patents for “Implants and Procedures for Treatment of Pelvic Floor Disorder” and the Alinsod Surgical Table and Stand. The Alinsod scissors, pickups, and clamps were all developed by Dr. Alinsod specifically for pelvic reconstructive surgery and to this day are the only instruments specifically designed for urogynecologic surgery. Currently, Dr. Alinsod has the largest patient series (Over 1500 placements) of augmented pelvic repairs using ultra-lightweight mesh dating back to 2005.

Dr. Red Alinsod is influential in the development of aesthetic vulvovaginal surgery. He founded “CAVS” (Congress for Aesthetic Vulvovaginal Surgery) in 2005 and is considered one of the pioneers of this evolving field. He is responsible for the current techniques in radiofrequency labiaplasty of the minora, the “Barbie” and Hybrid Look for labiaplasty, he invented the Medial Curvilinear Labia Majoraplasty, and he invented the central and lateral clitoral hood reductions.

He developed the combination Pudenal-Levator Block for In-Office Awake/No IV labiaplasty and vaginoplasty and has taught this technique worldwide. He was also the first surgeon to perform non-invasive labia majora RF skin tightening and RF vaginal canal tightening. Additionally, Dr. Alinsod is currently the Medical Director for Women’s Health for Thermi Aesthetics developing specific devices and treatments for women who suffer from labial and vaginal laxity.

Dr. Alinsod is highly sought after in presenting talks locally and nationally and in teaching physicians the art and science of pelvic reconstructive surgery as well as aesthetic vulvovaginal surgery. His one-on-one surgical preceptorships have had profound effects in the practices of many gynecologists and urologists. Red’s focus continues to be on reconstructive and aesthetic vulvovvaginal surgery to improve patient lives.

Yearly Annual Exam

the entire staff and Dr. are great

Pap Smear

He always makes me feel comfortable and always has time to answer all my questions


Dr. Red and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. The procedure was absolutely painless, as he said it would be. And on day 3 I already see and feel changes. I know the full effect will be felt at 6 weeks....I can't wait. Thank You for your service. painless and absolute results....Love the Dr and staff.


Dr. Alinsod is an amazing human and surgeon. He made me feel comfortable, heard me out, and delivered better results than I could have hoped for. I highly recommend Dr. Alinsod! It looks so natural no one would ever know that I had work done. I'm also so much more comfortable now that the excess skin has been removed. So grateful!


Not as much leaking


Dr. Alinsod is a caring and knowledgeable professional. He takes time to discuss options and answer all your questions. His support staff are also great. I highly recommend them.

Cystocele Repair (Bladder Repair)

Less urine leakage. Dr. Allinson is straight to the point and got the job done.


My appt was for 11am but somehow it was in your books for 9:45. I confirmed that 11am time several days before and nothing was said that it was for the earlier time. Furthermore, being told that my treatment was 'we are just giving it to you' with attitude was inappropriate and unprofessional. Not too happy and feel I was taken advantage of. Thanks guys!


Yes! Staff was so friendly! And procedure was not painful! They all made me feel comfortable.


Dr. Alinsod is the best female doctor I've ever had I was so nervous but the dr and his staff was amazing, thank you for caring for me.


Reasons I love Dr. Alinsod and his office and his staff: 1.) Dr. Alinsod is not only professional and skilled to the endth degree, he is accessible both personally and professionally. He always makes me feel at ease as does his wonderful staff. 2.) Every procedure, including surgery, he has performed on me has been highly successful. 3.) The office is lovely and welcoming and gorgeous.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

I have been seeing Dr. Alinsod for about 5 years and I think he's a great doctor. He's knowledgeable, personable, and caring.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Great Doctor. He actively listened and provided alternative potential solutions and immediate short term relief to my discomfort as well as a long term plan. His compassionate, professional demanor put me at ease. Great, knowledgeable and professional staff. Very friendly too. Relief of my discomfort.

Vaginal Vault Suspension

Having hope that he will bring the best result more than other doctors does. Unsatisfied about the financial options provided.


I got exactly what I asked for. Great service! Great results!


To my surprise I am more sensitive and am able to achieve an orgasm quicker and with more intensity. This was an unexpected bonus. I am now able to watch an entire movie and not have to run to the restroom before it finishes it, I have reduced the size of the Kotex I use, actually this is for my own insecurities. I believe I do not have to wear one because there is no longer an urgency about having to use the restroom.


My incontinence issues have been GREATLY improved. Since finishing the Rx in January I have had only 2 or 3 accidents. Both!!


This was a checkup yearly all was great. Dr Alinsod is the best doctor #1 and his staff are #1 as well.


Still waiting for the complete results. I have one treatment left and am hoping my vaginal moisture will return as discussed with Dr. Alinsod. I've definitely noticed a slight bit of moisture, but an confident it will continue after my third treatment.


Dr. Allinsod very knowledgeable about UTI infection and other issues I had.. Explains everything very thoroughly..
