30 Yo, Sick of Wearing Loose Pants - NYC

Show More Dr Alter was absolutely wonderful. From the first email to him he always answers, himself, within a few hours usually. He even personally called me that night after my surgery (on a Friday night!) to check on me. His knowledge & skill makes him one of the best in the world with oth female & male genital surgery. I did have a cosmetic procedure in 2006 that did not go well with another plastic surgeon (lipo of upper arms) so although Dr. Alter is more expensive than most, for me I was willing to pay for his expertise, experience & knowledge (boy was there a HUGE difference in my experience this time around). I was worried, I had read some reviews that he was arrogant, especially as I was humiliated to begin with. I don't think he's at all arrogant!! He's very confident, which he should be, he's earned that right. He was incredibly down to earth, understanding & honest with expectations. Speaking to Dr Alter was actually the first time I had ever discussed this issue with anyone, ever, and he made me feel incredibly at ease. I'm sure he has to be a very busy man but he made me feel like I was his only patient taking time with me before and after surgery. Would also like to say Molly (the nurse at the surgical center in NYC) was excellent. I did feel at ease and comfortable with her before and after my surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Alter to anyone considering any type on gential surgery. You made have to travel & you may have to wait a little longer to save up the money but he is well worth it!! I really can't express in words how grateful I am to him and for the confidence & comfort he has given me (& that's at 12 days post-op, can't wait to really see the results at 3-6 months!)

39 Years Old, Single W/ No Kids, Labiaplasty Wedge Method - Los Angeles, CA

Show More Dr. Alter is amazing. The hardest decision I had to make in all these years that I wanted this surgery was to actually pick up the phone, go to my consultation appointment, and schedule my surgery date. The easiest decision was selecting Dr. Alter. I knew he was the best. His medical background, experience, research publications, dual certifications in urology & plastic surgery, combined with being the 'inventor' of the wedge method, I knew I was in the best hands. I agree with the other reviewers that Dr. Alter is compassionate and giving with his time. About 1 week after my surgery, Dr. Alter was at his other office in NYC, and I had questions about my healing. I emailed him a few times, and ended up sending photos for his review. He quickly responded and reassured me everything was healing normally. Dr. Alter's office staff and surgical team were great and easy to work with also.

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.
