About Red Alinsod, MD
Dr. Red Alinsod graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine and completed his OB/GYN residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center. His focus in those early years was pelvic surgery. He was the first Rutledge Fellow at MD Anderson Cancer and Tumor Institute and was also selected as a Galloway Fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Medical Center. Dr. Alinsod was accepted to Yale’s Gynecologic Oncology fellowship but was unable to attend due to a military commitment with the US Air Force. He headed the Gynecologic Services at George Air Force Base, CA, and Nellis Air Force Base, NV, as he concentrated on benign gynecology, urogynecology and pelvic surgery.
Dr. Alinsod is instrumental 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 labiaplasty, invented the Medial Curvilinear Labia Majoraplasty, and 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.
