Voice feminization surgery
What is voice feminization surgery?
Voice feminization surgery is a procedure to raise the pitch of your voice or make it sound higher. Surgery changes the length, size, or tightness of your vocal cords.
Your vocal cords (also called vocal folds) are bands of soft tissue in your larynx (voice box). They control the pitch of your voice. They vibrate when you breathe air. The surgery changes the folds so that they vibrate differently and produce higher-pitched sounds when you speak.
Are there different types of voice feminization surgery?
There are different approaches to voice feminization surgery, including:
Formation of the anterior glottic web shortens the length of your vocal cords. This is the most common type of voice feminization surgery. It is also called Wendler’s glottoplasty.
Cricothyroid Reconciliation (CTA) increases the tightness of your vocal cords.
Laser Reduction Glotoplasty (LRG) decreases the mass or size of your vocal cords.
A laryngologist performs voice feminization surgery. This type of healthcare provider specializes in larynx and throat surgery.
Why is voice feminization surgery performed?
- You may choose to have voice feminization surgery if you:
- Are a transgender woman (male transitioning to female).
- Having a sex differentiation disorder (born with both male and female sex organs).
- Have disorders that require androgen (male sex hormone) therapy as treatment.
- Having ovarian cancer where the tumors produce androgens.
