Audio (before-and-after)

Presently this page is limited to audio examples of pitch surgeries. All of the "Before" recordings were made with professional equipment in my office. Many of the "After" recordings were made over the telephone or on the patient's computer and this will affect the audio quality.

Dr. Thomas' comments:

Her vocal pitch was improved after the feminization laryngoplasty surgery, but was somewhat rough and had a very low volume. She continues to smoke cigarettes. She had a laser tuneup which smoothed her voice out and improved the volume she estimates by about 30%. She still puts slight effort into her voice when speaking on the phone but it is perceived as a female. However, she still has trouble competing with background noise.
