The Adam’s apple is the forward protrusion of cartilage on the front of the neck, clearly visible in most men. After the age of 30, calcium is gathered and transforms into hard bone, making the surgery difficult.
In this procedure, the surgeon makes a horizontal incision parallel to the upper neckline at the highest possible point, so the scar’s visibility is minimized. The surgeon then reduces the size of the protruding cartilage and flattens it as much as possible.
The procedure normally takes about one (1) hour and can be done using local or general anaesthesia, depending on the patient’s age and the size of the bone. If local anaesthesia is used, the patient may return home immediately after the procedure. If general anaesthesia is required, an overnight stay in hospital will be necessary.
