Adam’s Apple Reduction

Feminising chondrolaryngoplasty, also known as “tracheal shave,” feminises the appearance of the neck by effectively reducing the prominence of the Adam’s apple and is performed through an incision across the front of the neck. Regardless of the incision placement or length, the scar can serve as an undesirable “mark” and a source of continued misgendering for the patient.

The procedure for Adam’s apple reduction involves making an incision in the submental region. Once this is done, the throat muscles are held apart while the thyroid cartilage is shaved down so that the throat looks smoother without having a protruding Adam’s apple.
