Males tend to have a much more prominent Adam's apple than females although small Adam's apples are
more common in males than many people realise. The Adam's apple can be reduced with a procedure called a
"tracheal shave" or "thyroid chondroplasty". It is not always possible to make a large Adam's apple invisible
with this procedure; rather the intent is to change it from the masculine protrusion to the feminine straight neck.
We use the submental approach, creating a tunnel over the platysma, underneath the skin.
Then over the thyrohyoid muscles, dissecting the wings of the thyroid bone, and removing the protruding cartilage of the wings.
