About adam's apple reduction
The laryngeal prominence in the throat, also called the Adam's apple, is one of the subtle yet major distinguishing factors between men and women. An Adam's apple is typically widely associated with men and adds to a more masculine appearance. Our Atlanta, GA board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Fara Movagharnia, is skilled in performing tracheal shaving procedures, which reduce the cartilage on top of the larynx (voice box) that is responsible for the protruding area along the neck. This surgery can help in the male to female transformation, allowing a more feminine and smooth appearance to be achieved. In some cases, it can also raise the pitch of the voice since the cartilage on top of the voice box is partly responsible for creating a lower-toned voice in men. At the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Movagharnia can meet with you and create a custom treatment plan based on the amount of cartilage you have and your end goals. Call today for a consultation.

"The Right Choice - After considering an elective orchiectomy for several years, I started serious research on where to have it performed. I had my criteria as we all do, and the CCRS under Dr. Fara Movagahrnia seemed to meet them, so I gave them a call. The office manager, Judy, picked up and we had a friendly discussion of all my concerns. She understood my situation so I was not embarrassed asking about certain details. Judy provided a clear picture of the process, and after thinking it over, I called and scheduled the surgery. After complying with the pre-surgery requirements, I met with Dr. Fara the day before and we discussed my motivation and general health. Up to now all contact with the CCRS was very congenial and informative and I was ready for the procedure. Early the next day I arrived at the nearby out-patient surgery center, met Dr. Fara, got prepped and moved to surgery. I woke up a short time later, rested then dressed. Dr.Fara came to make sure all was OK...which it was, and offered to drive me back to my motel, which he did. All the while his friendly demeanor kept me very relaxed. The next day I was able to drive to his office for a final checkup and was given a warm greeting by the doctor and staff. I was told to call with any follow up questions of which I had a few that were quickly answered. Overall, my orchiectomy experience with Dr. Fara at the CCRS was efficient, friendly, and successful. I still contact the center from time to time and if passing through Atlanta will stop by to say hello. Why go anywhere else for your orchiectomy?"- T. / RealSelf / Aug 12, 2020

The tracheal shave is usually performed as an outpatient surgery with the patient under local or general anesthesia. To perform a chondrolaryngoplasty, our plastic surgeon makes a small horizontal incision above the larynx and pulls back the neck muscles to reveal the thyroid cartilage. Our surgeon will carefully shave thin layers of the cartilage until the projection is significantly reduced. Dr. Movagharnia will only remove as much cartilage as possible without injuring the vocal chords, so some patients may still have a slight protrusion, but the neck will be smoother after the procedure. Once he has removed the cartilage, the neck muscles and skin will be stitched back together and cleaned before the surgical area is covered with bandages.
What to expect
You will be able to leave after the procedure to recover at home and will return for follow-up appointments at our Atlanta, GA office. You should expect some bruising and swelling in your neck as well as mild pain and discomfort. You are advised to rest your voice as much as possible for at least three weeks after the surgery. Scar management therapy will be discussed with Dr. Movagharnia to help you minimize your surgical scarring during the recovery.
