The tracheal shave procedure is a gender confirmation surgery that can help individuals adjust their appearance in a way that more directly aligns with their gender identity.
The tracheal shave is a surgical procedure that is commonly performed as part of gender reassignment surgery. It is also known as chondrolaryngoplasty or tracheal chondroplasty and involves reducing the size of the Adam's apple, which is the protrusion in the front of the neck that is more prominent in males than in females. The tracheal shave procedure is typically performed on transgender women who wish to have a more feminine appearance.
The tracheal shave procedure can also sometimes be performed on cisgender women who have a larger-than-average Adam's apple, enabling them to enjoy a more elegant and feminine appearance. While the procedure is generally safe, there are some risks involved, such as bleeding, infection, and damage to the vocal cords. It is important for patients to carefully consider the risks and benefits of the procedure before undergoing it.
