Vocal surgery outcomes in trans women

The field of voice feminization surgery for trans women has been an area of active development in recent years. While testosterone thickens the vocal cords in both cis men and trans men on testosterone, producing a deeper pitch, this is a one-way process: no amount of estrogen can reverse it. Vocal cord surgery to raise vocal pitch is meant to fill this need, and a recent study details the outcome of these surgeries on voice quality in trans women.
