ADAM'S APPLE SHAVING
Adam’s apple shaving procedure involves an incision in the throat just under the chin. The vertical muscles of the throat are then separated to expose Adam’s apple and the tracheal cartilage is shaved to reduce its size.
What is Adam’s Apple Shaving?
Transsexual women often request the surgery (Adam’s Apple Shaving) to decrease the Adam’s Apple bulge. This procedure is possible with local anesthesia and sedation to keep the patient relaxed.
The surgeon places a small horizontal incision along a natural skin fold in the neck to expose the tracheal cartilage then proceeds to shave down the tracheal convexity.
The patient may be discharged on the same day and come back for check-up after about 7 days.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q1 : How will the post-op period be for me?
You may experience temporary pain with tightness over the incision site and a bit of difficulty in swallowing.
Q2 : Will my neck be completely flat and lady-like?
The surgeon cannot guarantee a completely flat result since shaving too deep will damage the vocal cords and lead to hoarseness.
Q3 : Will my scar show after the surgery?
Since the incision is along a natural skin fold in the neck, it will become inconspicuous as it heals. If you have experienced forming keloids in the past, you must weigh the benefits of having a flatter Adam’s Apple against the risk of having an obvious neck scar.
Q4 : What are the risks of this surgery?
As with other surgeries, the risks include bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, nerve injury, and unfavorable scarring. As stated above, too much resection can lead to hoarseness.
Q5 : How do I prepare for adam's apple shaving surgery?
To avoid complications and reduce risk factors you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines (other than those that your doctor allows you continue), at least two weeks before your schedule. People with diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.
