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.

Augmentation Labiaplasty

[Single best thing is...] I feel so confident, where I lacked confidence before. Best decision to come to Dr. Alinsod, he was amazing from start to finish. From giving me peace at the consultation, to following up with me post augmentation. The best part of all was my results, I am so so happy with my results and I wish I could have done this earlier in my life. Thank you so much Dr Alinsod and your staff for making it the best experience from beginning to end. Would recommend to anyone :)

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

This is my third pellet replacement for my bioidentical hormones. Easy, quick, painless. A++


Felt amazing and I loved the results!

Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction

Love the entire staff. [Single best thing is...] Facial improvement.

Cystocele Repair (Bladder Repair)

Bladder was significantly lifted! I do not wake up through the night to use the restroom, decreased urination during the day, no feeling of urgency. [Single best thing is...] I can sleep through the night.


Surgeon was very skilled surgically.

Pap Smear

Very professional and knowledgeable. Dr Alinsod has a way of making his patients feel comfortable. He's the best. His staff is excellent as well. [Single best thing is...] Dr Alinsod was on time. I was completely comfortable with my procedure. His knowledge is second to none in female health.


Staff is always nice and the treatments are relaxing. Dr. always friendly. [Single best thing is...] Less wrinkles


I am hopeful that the painless, non surgical treatments will work for my leaky bladder problem.

Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction

I enjoy a close medical relationship. [Single best thing is...] wrinkle reduction.


I was a nervous wreck, Dr. Alinsod answered all my questions and put me at ease. His bedside manner is very gentle. His staff are top notch, Cindy, Diane, and Marisol were super helpful and sweet throughout this process. I've been to many doctors before but I've never experienced this level of exceptional treatment and care. I will continue to see Dr. Alinsod for any future treatment needed. During my procedure I felt no pain and was at ease just like Dr. said I would. My results were amazing.

Laser Hair Removal

Amazing doctor and team! I feel very warmly welcomed by Diane and nurses!


Staff and Dr. always professional, friendly, and efficient. Very knowledgeable and good at explaining things. [Single best thing is...] my chronic skin condition is kept under control as well as possible.

Reduction Labiaplasty

Dr. is very easy to communicate with. He made me feel very comfortable with my procedure. Satisfied.


Everyone is amazing!

Augmentation Labiaplasty

Amazing doctor and staff! I couldn't be happier with my results!


Yes [highly satisfied], Dr. Alinsod was informative, professional and meticulous. I am happy with the results and would highly recommend him to others! Thank you for creating a better quality of life! [Single best thing is...] I came in for a rectocele repair which is 100% better, with the added benefit of a PRP injection which has helped my bladder leakage, which was problematic, but not my biggest issue. Really happy with the results.

Augmentation Labiaplasty

I'm so happy with the results of my procedures. [Single best thing is...] The way I look and feel.

Gynecology Exam

I always feel well heard and receive excellent medical care.


I'm highly satisfied because Dr. Alinsod is the best when it comes to the female anatomy in my opinion. This time I had the Thermiva done (only two treatments, going for my third one soon) and so far I'm very satisfied for what it's done for me in helping with overactive bladder. I don't run to the toilet every 20-30 minutes like I used to and it's so liberating. The Thermiva is to tighten the inside vagina and gives a firmer outside look, but for me, it's done wonders for my overactive bladder and I couldn't be happier. Thank you, Dr. Alinsod!
