Vocal Folds Shortening and Retro­displacement of Anterior Commissure (VFSRAC)

Recommended Posts

Are there doctors that specialize in

Vocal Folds Shortening and Retro­displacement of Anterior Commissure (VFSRAC) in the United States or Canada?  I am not comfortable flying to South Korea due to tensions between USA and NK.  I originally was planning on Yeson Voice Center and Dr. Kim  but now I need a "Plan B".  My wife and my mom both put the kibosh on my idea of going to Seoul.

There is Dr. Haben in Rochester, NY who specializes in vocal chord surgery.   I've read good things about him.   Find him at  professionalvoice.org

Thank you for that information Jani

I went to his site and found the voice feminization surgery and explanation quite interesting.  I simply don't know if i could get it past my wife.  She says i sound fine.....i try to believe that......but?

Oh you sound fine Charlize! :)  How long has your wife been listening to you?   I don't know how hard you try, but I found your voice to be fine.  

 

I've heard the healing time from surgery is long and you can't speak for several months as the vocal chords heal in their new form.  Then you have to continue voice therapy to relearn how to speak with the new voice.  It sounds like a whole lot of work.  It is good that there are options here in the US.

A friend of mine had her work done by Dr. Haben and while she is happy, about the only noticeable to me about her before and after is that her North Carolina accent has gone even further south and west.  We love her but chuckle about the results, even when she is around.

Dr Haben does Vocal Fold Webbing Anterior Commisure Retrodisplacement (VFWACR).   I want Vocal Folds Shortening and Retro­displacement of Anterior Commissure (VFSRAC).  I don't think they are the same.  I need this one:

I wasn't aware there was a difference.  Maybe he or someone in his office could recommend another surgeon.

      Hello "Girl inside my head", welcome!  Certainly do dive in and look about, and ask questions.     Do you have a name that you use, that we could call you?  Cheers, Jani

      That's what I took it to mean, that they could do more.  I think he was just giving an honest appraisal.  30% in top management is really good and I would think this is a high number for financial businesses overall.      Jani

      That sounds pretty good. I wonder why he said it was a "mixed review," unless its just to say that more work needs to be done.  Thanks, Jani.   Carolyn Marie

      New user as of today.    I struggle as a male but I'm a female trapped in a man's body.    I think and act like a girl but in a man's body.    I someday hope to be the real me.

      Thank you all so much. I really appreciate your responses!   The consensus seems to be to keep it to myself, and be prepared to document potential harassment, and only then make an issue out of it. I think that is the route I'll take. Phew - that's a load off!   @tracy_j, your experience sounds a lot like my potential situation. I really appreciate you sharing that.   I've read the HR policy on the dress code, and it says not to wear anything casual - to keep it business appropriate, which I think even in the unlikely event I'm brave enough to wear woman's clothing to work, so long as it's business-attire, it technically shouldn't be an issue. I took your advice looking at legal issues, and if I'm understanding it correctly, both my state and the federal law protect against discrimination based on sex which may include pregnancy, gender identity, or orientation as well as biological sex organs.

      Wow, it's been a year on HRT. I have come a long way in a year. If you told me I would still be on cloud 9 back then, I wouldn't have believed you. But here I am and still feeling great. Thank you all for being here and supporting me through this last year. I am looking forward to the things to come.    Hugs    Shawnna
