Our Work Method
Excellent work demonstrated
Stage 1 VOCAL EXAM
The treatment starts with an appointment in the clinic, here, the anatomy of the larynx will be recorded and a complete study of the voice will be performed. This study includes:
A perceptual exploration.
An aerodynamic exploration.
A stroboscopic exploration of the larynx.
An acoustic-Spectrographic examination.
Also, the voice will be recorded while speaking (reading of a phonetically balanced text).
Stage 2 SURGERY
Every surgical technique to lift the vocal tone are based around three fundamental principles:
1. Increase the tension of the vocal cords.
2. Alter the consistency of the vocal cords.
3. Reducing the mass of the vocal cords.
The current surgical techniques to feminize the voice are the following:
- Shortening Vocal Cord through an endoscopy (Wendler glottoplasty).
- LAVA (Laser Assisted Voice Adjustment) Orloff ‘s Technique).
POST-SURGICAL SPEECH THERAPY
Once you have completed the surgery of your vocal cords, and after the compulsory vocal rest, it is convenient to do speech therapy rehabilitation to strengthen what has been achieved with surgery.
The sessions on voice feminization mainly focuses on the exercise of the following elements:
The relaxation, the blow, the respiration, and the posture…
The vocal work is mainly based on singing exercises and the joint application of various voice techniques, its main objective is to consolidate all previously cited elements to obtain a female and harmonious voice.
Along with speech therapy sessions, you should perform a daily series of exercises at home and apply them in your daily live. These will serve as “training” and settlement for the maintenance of the new voice. In order to obtain better results, the vocal work should be encouraged and continued.
