Laryngeal Shave in Beverly Hills

I recently performed a laryngeal shave, on a male to female transsexual patient (MtF TS), who was very self-conscious of the large, unfeminine protrusion in the front of her neck. The male larynx is not only bigger than the female larynx, but the angle of the front cartilages forms a 90 degree keel-shaped prominence (Adam’s apple). In contrast, the female larynx is smaller with a flatter 120 degree angle. During their transition, most MtF TS patients have reduction of their Adam’s apple to help eliminate the appearance of a masculine neck.
