The Adam’s apple is a prominent cartilage clearly visible in most men, especially after the age of 30 when calcium is gathered, transforming it into a hard bone and making the surgery difficult.
The surgeon makes a horizontal incision parallel to the upper neck line at the highest point possible. So the scar is hardly visible. The surgeon will then use a surgical device to reduce the height and size of the protruding cartilage, making it as flat as possible. The surgery takes about one (1) hour and can be done using local or general anaesthesia, depending on the patient’s age and the height and size of the bone. If local anaesthesia is used, patient may return home immediately after the procedure. If a general anaesthesia is required, an overnight stay in hospital is necessary.
