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.
