Tracheal Shave surgical Procedure

Most surgeons who specialize in transsexual surgeries will perform. It is likely the most common surgery performed on transsexual women.

After an anesthetic is administered to the patient, a small, horizontal incision is made on the bottom of the Adam’s apple. The muscles in the throat are then held apart with forceps, and the protruding cartilage is shaved down with a scalpel, thus making the throat appear smoother and less angular. The incision is then closed with sutures, and a red line will mark the incision for about four to six weeks.

 

Postoperative Recovery – Tracheal Shave (Adam’s Apple surgery Thailand)

After Adam’s apple surgery, some numbness and temporary discomfort may persist around the incision for few days, but this can be controlled with pain medication. The bruising and swelling that does occur will usually subside considerably in the first week. Bandages will come off a day or two after surgery. Stitches from the surgery are removed during the 5 days, though this varies from patient to patient.

Normal work can be resumed 3 days after an Adam’s apple procedure. You should be able to shower 1 day after the bandages come off. However, vigorous activity should be limited for several weeks, including jogging, bending, sex, or any activity that increases your blood pressure.

Most of the visible signs of Adam’s apple surgery should disappear within a few weeks, and minor swelling and bruising can usually be hidden. Do not worry if you feel a bit tired and let down at first, as your body heals itself and you begin to look better, you will feel better as well. Patients are usually very satisfied with their new look once their surgery site has completely healed. Patients often do not realize just how much their contributed to an older appearance until they see their new, refreshed look.

 

Treatment after surgery during the first 5 days of Adam’s apple:

- Removing Incisions within 5 days after surgery.

- No heavy exercise 2 weeks after surgery

- Scars are usually well hidden and normally fade in time

- Swelling and bruising can be minimized by keeping the head elevated as much as possible during the first few weeks of recovery
