Tracheal Shave Before And After From The Operating Room
This transgender patient underwent a tracheal shave as part of her transitioning process. In the before photo taken before the start of her surgery you can see how she had a very prominent Adam's apple. In the after photo taken at the end of the surgery you can see how the area is already much smoother, though there is a normal level of generalized skin swelling that will further reduce over the first few months after surgery. You can also see the surgical incision line sutures which are removed about 1 week after surgery. Note how Dr. Lamperti places the incision quite high up on the neck to best obscure it.
