Hello Doctor Thomas,
I was curious to know if after having a surgery like feminization laryngoplasty, if singing would still be possible. More importantly would my singing voice be in a female pitch? Singing has always been a very big part of my male life and I would like to bring my gift with me in my new life. My style of singing is very soulful/R&B/Pop (Beyonce, Joss Stone, Christina). I've attempted in the past to train my voice to so that I may sing more feminine, but to no avail. My voice just sounded strained and "Minne mouse" like. My regular talking voice sounds very feminine, but can become rather raspy very quickly even just talking at a normal indoors volume. At times my talking voice can become little bassy as I unintentional start to relax the muscles. Also sneezing and throat and coughing can become a rather embrasssing activity if I'm not careful. So I'm rather interested in this surgery. Thank you for your time and can't wait for your reply.
