VOICE FEMINISATION IN BARCELONA
The first step in voice feminisation is surgery. The team of otolaryngologists at barnaclinic+ perform two types of vocal feminisation surgery: Wendler's glottoplasty and the LAVA (Laser Assisted Voice Adjustment) technique. The professional who visits you will define the best option for your case, choosing one or the other or a combination of both surgical techniques.
Both before and after voice feminisation surgery, it is very important to carry out the correct speech therapy work. At barnaclinic+ we have expert speech therapists who will accompany you through the process. First, they will help you to modify your breathing patterns, intonation and voice inflexion to adopt habits and measures that make your voice more feminine. After the intervention, work is carried out on adaptation and recognition of the new voice and help is given to recover the physiology of the vocal cords.
The best surgeons and speech therapists to accompany you on your gender confirmation journey. We change your voice and help you connect your outward appearance with your personality.
WHAT DOES THE SURGERY CONSIST OF?
1 - Vocal examination
To begin voice feminisation, you will meet the professionals who will accompany you in the process on a first visit where they will carry out the necessary examinations to obtain a complete analysis of your voice.
2 - Pre-operative speech therapy
The following professional you will meet will be from the speech therapy team. In these sessions, we will seek to modify respiratory and vocal articulation patterns, as well as to feminise spontaneous expressions or change vocabulary.
3 - Surgery and recent postoperative period
As we have explained, at barnaclinic+ we perform voice feminisation using two surgical techniques: Wendler's glottoplasty and LAVA (Laser Assisted Voice Adjustment). Once the surgery has been performed, either by one or both of these procedures, you will have to rest your voice completely for between one week and ten days, for optimal healing.
4 - Post-operative speech therapy
After voice feminisation surgery, you will meet again with our team of speech therapists to consolidate the results. Our professionals will accompany you in the adaptation and recognition of your new voice, as well as help you to improve and eliminate the scars and thus recover the physiology of your vocal cords.
5 - Follow-up
From then on and after discharge, our professionals will visit you periodically. We will monitor you and will be at your disposal for any consultation, check-up or control.
