Hate Your Voice? Alter Your Pitch with Thyroplasty Surgery

Lower Your Pitch with Thyroplasty Surgery

Thyroplasty Surgery

It doesn’t matter if you are a guy with a high-pitched voice, or a girl with a low-pitched voice, not sounding like your gender can have negative repercussions on a person and can affect your social life. While not everyone is blessed with a low-pitched or a high-pitched voice, there are ways to change the pitch of your voice. One way is to alter your voice consciously and practice this until it becomes a natural habit. Another way to modify the tone of your voice is to breathe from your diaphragm and practice better breathing. You could also seek out voice training from a speech expert to increase your chances. However, these natural methods do not always work for everyone, so voice lowering surgery is often the next step.

Voice lowering surgery, also known as Thyroplasty surgery, can permanently alter the pitch of your voice. The difference in tone between a male and a female is determined by the vocal fold, which is longer and larger in males versus females. Just like an instrument, lower sounds come from instruments with thicker and longer strings. However, while the tone of your voice changes during puberty, it doesn’t always change as one would like. Due to this, there are adults out there who are unhappy with their voice because their pitch is abnormally too high or too low.
Do you have a high pitched or a low-pitched voice that has not responded to therapy? Currently, at the New York Voice Center, we offer Thyroplasty surgery to help lower the pitch of your voice. A phonosurgical technique, Thyroplasty surgery changes the length or position of the vocal cords and alters the thyroid cartilage of the larynx.
