Voice Lift Surgery is a procedure designed for the aging voice. As we age, so do our vocal folds. They become weak, atrophy, and as a result, vocal quality deteriorates. In addition, constant overuse, abuse, and misuse, especially seen in voice professionals, speakers, and older people can lead to a decreased vocal quality.
There is a way to help restore our voices to a more natural, youthful, relaxed quality. The Voice Lift involves an injection of implant material into the lateral part of the vocal cord. This helps add increased substance to the vocal cord and diminishes the effort needed to obtain vocal fold closure and thus voice. This is performed in a clinical setting or under topical anaesthesic, or in the hospital setting.
