Cost of Adam's apple Reduction

Thanks for the question.  The cost for an Adam's apple reduction is in the range of $3500-5500, depending on the geography and setting, as the cost of doing this in an operating room with an anesthesiologist is typically more than having it done in the office with local anesthesia.  Good luck!

Adam's apple reduction

A prominent Adam's apple is from growth of the thyroid cartilage in the neck. Your vocal cords are attached to the front of your cartilage, so you should go to an experienced surgeon to have this procedure done. Overly aggressive surgery can result in permanent damage to your voice.

I do this procedure under general anesthesia so that I ensure no damage is done to the vocal cords themselves. Prior to removal of cartilage I look in the voice box with a camera and mark the exact point the vocal cords attach. In doing this, the maximum amount of cartilage is removed all the while preserving your voice.

The cost varies by region, but in Dallas I typically charge between around $2000 depending on whether additional procedures are added. An additional anesthesia and OR fee is added to that making the total cost approximately $5000.

Best of luck to you,

We charge 4,500 $ when it is a sole procedure. With combo procedures the cost is reduced. It can be done under local anesthesia in clinic or the operating room while the patient is asleep. 

Hope this helps.

Best of luck,

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. 

Best wishes,

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

In the average case, we charge $3000 -$3500 depending on the type of anesthesia chosen. It may or may not completely eliminate it but without photos/exam it is impossible to say.
