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.

"68 year old woman, overweight and tired of being miserable - I am a 68 year old woman, over weight and tired of being miserable. I had suffered with large breast since middle school; my breast just kept getting larger and my back and neck always hurt. I was in a car accident in 2011, broke my back, neck, collar bone, ripped Rotator cuff and concussion. I went through many surgeries plus procedures to help the swelling in my neck. Needless to say but I put on weight and my breasts were getting bigger and bigger. I made up my mind to have a breast reduction and help with the migraines and back/neck pain. Dr Fara is wonderful, he fully explained the procedure and what he can do for me. I am ecstatic over my results. I love my new breast and I do mean love! Very happy. Dr. Fara is kind and has a great bedside manner too. Called everyday after the surgery to make sure I was good. I listened to him before the surgery and started my high protein diet and I was doing exactly as he needed for me to be a success. Day of surgery, his staff and nurses were fantastic. I am 5 weeks out and I feel great, the itching is controllable, the incisions are healing nicely. I have itty-bitty titties now. Yeah, Dr. Fara, you are a rock star. I saw the pictures of before the surgery and I almost cried. Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. Fara."- S. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2023

"From my very first consultation, I knew that I was in the best hands - I just wanted to take this time out to express how overwhelmingly happy I am with my Tummy Tuck results. The process of finding Dr. Movagharnia Fara who is a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON with over 20 plus years of experience was very easy. I was referred to him by my best friend who has had a few procedures with Dr. Fara, and her resluts and overall experience were AMAZING! From my very first consultation, I knew that I was in the best hands. I expressed to Dr. Fara how unhappy I had been for years with the excess skin and fat on my stomach. He assessed my concerns and assured me that he would be able to give me a flatter tummy. He was very thorough with the details of the surgery and was able to answer every question and concerned that I had with very honest responses. I knew immediately after my consultation that this was the Dr. I wanted to move forward with. He gave me very precise instructions to prepare for my Tummytuck and 2 months later on November 21, 2022, my life changed forever. I am now 4 weeks post-op and I am so HAPPY with my results. I feel very blessed that I chose Dr. Fara and I look forward to the positive progression that I will have through out my healing process. Thank You Dr, FARA!!!! You are the ABSOLUTE BEST PLASTIC SURGEON EVER.......God Bless you, and your AMAZING STAFF, Mrs. JUDY and Mrs. FARA.Sincerely,Lynese Doukoure"- A. / RealSelf / Dec 23, 2022

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.
