Tracheal Shave Cost

Thanks for your question. Cost will depend on your region of the country and your surgeon. 

However, in our Austin, TX practice, the cost is typically around 4,000-5,000. This procedure is also commonly combined with other facial feminization surgeries so the cost can be reduced by combining other surgeries during one anesthetic.

Tracheal Shave Adam's Apple Reduction

Reduction of the thyroid cartilage, or tracheal shave, is a procedure commonly performed at my practice. The surgery involves a small incision in the neck, about 1CM, and we do not use any drains.  It is performed at a licensed out patient surgery center center.  The cost for the procedure at my practice including the surgery, anesthesia, and operating room is a total of $6450. Hope this helps!Dr. Sajan

Adam's apple reduction

The cost of this surgery depends partly on the type of anesthesia you choose, and on your age.  Generally between $3000-$4000. In a young man, the cartilage is often soft and easier to remove, meaning the anesthesia cost may go down.  In older patients the cartilage starts to turn into bone, making the procedure more difficult and requiring deeper anesthesia.A full evaluation in the office will help us discuss your goals and expectations and give an accurate answer on pricing.Best of luckDr Rodman
