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 tiny line will mark the incision for about four to six weeks.

The bruising or swelling that does occur will usually subside considerably in the first week. Bandages will come off a day or two after surgery.
