Trachea shave is one of the simplest and swiftest procedures of facial feminization surgery, but it must be done by an expert surgeon since a too agresive shave could weaken the larynx structure or voicebox and permanently alter the vocal quality.
The surgery is done through a small incision, that usually coincides with a crease or fold of the neck to conceal the resulting scar. The surgeon cuts and shaves the excess cartilage and smoothens out the surface to prevent the skin to reveal any irregularities.
Adam's apple removal is done under general anesthesia, with other procedures of facial feminization surgery, or alone.
How long will adam's apple removal take?
