1) Vocal Fold Shortening and Advancement of Anterior Commisure (VFS AAC)
The new method of voice feminization surgery, called “Vocal Fold Shortening and Advancement of Anterior Commissure,” is the world’s first treatment that does not incise the skin and get the same result of modifying the vocal cord to a female shape using an endoscope. This procedure which was developed by Yeson Voice Center was presented at the Voice Foundation Association in the United States on May 29, 2007.
2) Percutaneous Injection Laryngoplasty
Percutaneous Injection Laryngoplasty is a new method developed to improve the operating procedures using electromyogram. Without the need of anesthesia, this new process preserves major vocal membrane and vocal layer, and allows for inserting an organic prosthesis in the right place. The electrymyogrammic needle helps to spot and insert the material, improving the voice dramatically almost permanently.
3) Microlaryngeal surgery+PDL
Microlaryngeal surgery, or phonomicrosurgery, has been developed since 19th Century as the observation of the larynx through reflecting mirrors began. Laryngeal mirrors (tools with small mirrors attached which are used to see into the larynx through the mouth) provided the most significant part of understanding and treating vocal fold diseases.
4) Multichannel Phonokinetic Evaluation System
Multichannel Phonokinetic Evaluation System is newly developed by Yeson Voice Center to evaluate the phonatory pattern and substantiated the phonatory muscle usage and kinetic aspect of respiratory phasing during classical singing.
