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.

Vampire Facial

Everyone is happy, professional, and extremely helpful. my skin glows

Gynecology Exam

Great staff, I was welcomed, cared for and made me feel comfortable, and Dr. Rod has a good bed side manner.

Laser Vein Treatment

Dr Alinsod & his staff are great! I wish i could see a difference:-(

Clitoral Hood Reduction

Doctor Alinsod wants patient to be completely satisfied and put me at ease in pointing out concerns so that he can give me the results I expect!


The doctor and his staff made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions and concerns. I'm very grateful I chose him for the procedures I wanted done. His professionalism and knowledge is outstanding. [Single best thing is...] The way I'm going to feel when I'm healed.


Excellent Surgical Repair - about 8 years ago.

Clitoral Hood Reduction

The doctor and nurses were very detailed and ensured I was comfortable throughout the procedure. Everything was planned out and went smoothly.


Flying from Las Vegas and driving from San Diego makes my apt time super important. Diane at the front desk is exceptional at being accommodating and helpful. Dr. Alinsod spent his valuable time explaining everything I might expect from the thermavi procedure. He makes the most uncomfortable situations and conversations seem easy. Most importantly my satisfaction is due to the procedure doing what I hoped it would do. Fixing laxity, lubrication and sensitivity. I will be back for more treatments as I age to maintain the health of my vagina and bladder. Thank you for being amazing. [patient name]


Great procedure, great doctor, great office. Less pain


I haven't experienced the three treatments I pre-paid for. Once I do I'm confident I will give you a "highly satisfied" rating. My bladder seemed to be lifted for the first two weeks post-treatment but it is now at the same moderately prolapsed position as pre-laser treatment. I have two left and I know it will improve from here. I did get a lot of improvement in other areas. I am highly satisfied with those. Thank you. [patient name]

Treatment / Procedure

I have always been satisfied with all aspects of this practice. Dr. Alinsod is the consummate professional and he and his staff do a great job.


Dr. Alinsod understands women and their issues. He takes the time to explain the procedure step by step. He sets reasonable expectations and wants to ensure you are happy with the results. During each procedure, he was reassuring that I was doing well and wanting to know if I had any questions and if I was comfortable. Dr. Alinsod's staff is professional, warm and friendly which provides a welcoming environment where you feel safe and cared for. I feel better about myself, much more confident. I like what I see.


Increased elasticity, less pain, increased moisture, less bleeding. Dr. Alinsod is not only my overall favorite physician and a highly skilled professional, but also, a truly wonderful human being. The expertise and knowledge he brings to his practice and patients is unparalleled. While expertly managing a thriving practice he also maintains a preeminent leadership role in the broader industry for which he practices and serves. His reputation precedes him in the development of innovative technologies and techniques, methods in which he strives to promote healing and an enhanced quality of life for his patients as well as an objective for sharing his knowledge through the ongoing training of colleagues worldwide. Dr. Alinsod is surrounded by an incredible team who are equally caring, consistently supportive, responsive and warm. Together this team provides a welcoming and wonderful environment to receive treatment for some of life's most personal and intimate issues. I always feel welcome, cared for, and know that I can entrust my care to this team each time I visit. I am so very grateful for the dedication and authenticity of Dr. Alinsod and his wonderful team, they are a genuine blessing. I truly love them all and feel so incredibly fortunate to be within their care. The ultimate aim would be that all physicians were as devoted to their craft and their patients as Dr. Alisnod and his team. [patient name]


Dr. Alinsod is highly skilled at what he does and is extremely personable. His staff is very friendly and super efficient. The office environment is very clean and inviting.


Dr. Red and his staff are very open to completely answering any questions I ask. The procedures work. They explain exactly what will/should occur.

Yearly Annual Exam

Everything was extremely professional.


I had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Alinsod and his team! I felt honestly right at home. Before my visit, I was pretty nervous and embarassed but I immediately felt at ease with Dr. A. He has a very kind, genuine nature to where you know you're being fully cared for. I was completely comfortable and can't wait for my next session of ThermiVa. I combined it with the O-Shot and UM WOW. I am thrilled with how things are improving and feel like I have some power back down there! Woot woot! Thanks Dr. Alinsod.


The results were evident according to what I was trying to achieve which is to increase the skin and widening inside my vagina and the loosening of the skin.

Vampire Facial

Very minimal wait time and staff are friendly. I look good.


Yes, highly satisfied. Very professional environment. Good results from procedure.
