The thyroid cartilage is the structure that houses the vocal cords. In males, the cartilage tends to be larger and more prominent. For patients who wish to reduce the Adam’s Apple, this is done through a small incision in the neck which is carefully hidden in a crease. This can generally be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Without a hesitation I would recommend Dr. Rodman to any Transgender patient/family looking for Facial Feminization Surgery. She explained every detail of the procedure to us and has an amazing bedside manner. She truly invests in not only the patient but the family as well. I was kept informed throughout the 11+ hour surgery from the nurses in the OR. The PreOp & PostOp visits have all been wonderful – the office staff are equally as amazing to work with. Definitely worth a consult.
