  • Adamís apple reduction
  • 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.
