Voice feminization

This surgery is one of the most notable advances in our field, allowing us to give patients a higher-pitched and more feminine voice. Until very recently, people whose physical gender did not match their gender identity were able to their appearance through plastic surgery and hormone treatments, but their voice prevented complete transformation. Now there are techniques that are able to respond to these vocal requirements.


There are two primary techniques:


Thyroplasty type IV

This consists of joining the thyroid cartilage with the cricoid cartilage, which “stretches” the vocal folds and results in a higher-pitched frequency.




In this procedure, the size of the vocal folds, or their area of vibration, is reduced, making them resemble those of women (which are smaller). The result is raised pitch.
