How much does it cost to have my Adams apple removed?

Adams apple

To clarify, the adam's apple can not be removed.  It can be shaved down so that visual appearance is not as prominent.  This procedure can range from $3,000-$5,000 depending on the area of U.S. you have this done.  Every office is different with their pricing.  Our office is experienced in handling out of state patients, we are more than happy to help answer any other questions you may have.

Adam's apple reduction

Thank you for your question. 

Firstly, the Adams apple cannot be removed, just shaved down which is why it is also known as “tracheal shaving”. This procedure is done by making a small incision and shaving the thyroid cartilage down to give a smoother, more feminine appearance and will result in minimal scarring. The cost varies on location and surgeon but I can tell you that the RealSelf average cost for this procedure is around $4,000- $5,000. I would recommend scheduling a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to have a physical examination done and exact estimate written up. Best of luck in your endeavors!

It cannot be removed, it is reduced. By how much depends on the anatomy at the start. Prices vary widely from region to region and between surgeons. My package fee is $3000.00. This includes my fee, anesthesia, operating room, labs and all visits/consultations.
