Gary J. Alter is an American plastic surgeon who has been a longtime supporter of our community. He has headquarters in Beverly Hills as well as offices in New York and Dubai. I suggest giving him strong consideration for your needs, as he is very experienced. I personally know several satisfied patients. He was also a major supporter of our first all-transgender performance of The Vagina Monologues in 2004. I am honored to know him personally.
Alter graduated from UCLA School of Medicine in 1973 before additional training at Baylor and The Mayo Clinic. He was one of the first physicians with Board Certification by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Urology.
He has an office-based practice. Alter is known for genital plastic surgery, especially genital reconstruction. He has invented many original surgical procedures adopted by other plastic surgeons in the field, including the “Alter Central-Wedge labiaplasty technique”.
Alter is a frequent subject of media coverage. In addition to appearing in almost every major print media outlet, he was featured on E! Entertainment’s programs Dr. 90210 and Botched. He has been highlighted on Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother (documentary) and on the TLC show Strange Sex. He has appeared on the Discovery Health Network, TLC, CNN, the Larry King Show, and was a recurrent guest on “Red Eye” on the Fox News Channel.
