5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty

16 Year Old Labiaplasty. Beverly Hills, CA

Show More I really love Dr. Alter and highly recommend him. He did a beautiful job and made me feel calm throughout the process. He has a wonderful personality and my mother and I loved him. He was able to tame the anxious mother while helping me feel confident about the surgery. I was referred to him by a plastic surgeon in my area that we are friendly with. He had taken a class from Dr. Alter and felt that he was the best. I agree, he's very knowledgeable and he tells you how it is. Zena was also lovely and very helpful, particularly for my mother. Dr. Alter is very blunt, but not in an offensive way. He's an expert in his field and will tell you how it is. He is caring, and kind, and has a wonderful sense of humor. He's professional and is amazing at what he does. I highly recommend him.

Glad That I Did It, Everything Considered - Manhattan, NY

Show More Overall I am glad that I did it. Doctor alter is pretentious and plastic at best and straight up unprofessional, egotistical and uncaring at worst. The results are worth it but you should definitely know what kind of person you will be interacting with considering you will be addressing such personal matters.

Dr Alter is the Best at What He Does - Beverly Hills, CA

5 out of 5 stars Vaginal Rejuvenation

Labiaplasty, Liposuction/Fat Transfer, Rectocele, Vaginal Tightening - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More Dr. Alter's accessibility and promptness impressed me prior to our initial consultation. His practice manager, Zena, was also highly efficient, accommodating my needs since I live out of town. At our consultation, Dr. Alter's superior experience in the field of female genital surgery made me feel secure and clear about our surgical plans. Dr. Mettel, was just as remarkable, his extensive experience in vaginal surgery made this process easygoing and smooth. Besides, I admire Dr. Alter's professionalism; he is always available and flexible. Ultimately, there must not be another surgical intervention that is more intimate and personal for a female than vaginal surgery. As evidenced by so many women's tragic and painful experiences, a poor surgical outcome may not only result in physical disfigurement, but also in deep psychological/emotional trauma. As a result, the choice of a highly qualified and well rounded surgeon such as Dr. Alter is key to a successful surgical outcome. Dear Dr. Alter and Dr. Mettel, Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Tightening, Rectocele Repair, Perineum Repair, Labiaplasty, Clitoral Hood Reduction - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More Both doctors are extremely knowledgeable, experienced, caring and with great senses of humor. You need a sense of humor for how many times you're going have two men you really don't know looking at or handling your lady bits! I never waited more than 5 minutes for an appointment before or after. Zena in Dr. Alter's office is a rock star.

Labiaplasty with Clitoropexy by Dr Alter - Los Angeles, CA

Show More Dr Alter is excellent. He immediately put me at ease as did his anaesthetist (they have been working together for many years). He is dual trained in urology and plastic surgery which I feel is necessary for this procedure. He was always available by email and saw me on the weekend post-operatively because of timing issues. I would highly recommend him for this procedure.

Love my New Vag! - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More Found out through my gyno.... and personal research about which doctor has the most experience. Although Dr. Alter was the most expensive, I chose him because I wanted the best. He generally invented most of the common procedures used today and even does transgender reassignment---if he can make a beautiful vagina out of a penis--surely my issue would be easy. He performs this surgery regularly and has amazing results. I didn't choose him because of his name, but because of his level of skill and expertise in this particular area. I also didn't want to have no inner labia left, just a more sized down version and many doctors simply remove most of it, this look was not for me. Dr. alter likes to maintain a more natural look, but will tailor things to your requests. I had the Alter-v technique (wedge). He also puts ZERO pressure on you to get the surgery, he simply answered my questions and made suggestions for what he could do to address my concerns.
