How does an Adam’s apple reduction work?
During the first consultation we discuss all topics that are related to the treatment. This is how we enter into a conversation about what bothers you most about your Adam’s apple and what you would like to change about this. We will discuss how the operation will work, what result you can expect, what the possible risks are and how the process will continue after the operation.
The plastic surgeon will then check whether you are a suitable candidate for Adam’s apple reduction. The doctor will ask about your health, medical background and any medication use.
The Adam’s apple reduction can be performed in combination with other Facial Feminization Surgeries. The operation will then take place under general anesthesia. If you only opt for the Adam’s apple reduction, the treatment will be performed under local anesthesia.
During the operation, the doctor will grind the cartilage so that the Adam’s apple no longer protrudes. An incision is made under the chin of about three centimeters wide.
