Shaving Around the Adam's Apple
You're at the high school baseball game with your friends, and you see your big brother's friend Justin in the dugout drinking from a water bottle. With every sip he takes , a big bump moves up and down on the front of his neck. The boys your age don't have bumps like that, you think to yourself.

Chondrolaryngoplasty commonly called tracheal shave is a surgical procedure in which the thyroid cartilage is reduced in size by shaving down the cartilage through an incision in the throat, generally to aid those who are uncomfortable with the girth of their Adam's apple. After an anesthetic local or general , depending on whether or not it is the only surgery to be performed is administered to the patient, a small, horizontal incision is made on the bottom of the Adam's apple. The muscles in the throat are then held apart with forceps , and the protruding cartilage is shaved down with a scalpel , thus making the throat appear smoother and less angular. The incision is then closed with sutures , and a red line will mark the incision for about six weeks.
