Hoarse, rough, and aged voice to clear, beautiful, and young voice
Vocal cord surgery can alter voice that is hoarse and rough, or voice that has been changed for various reasons including aging. Unlike changes in voice resulting from a cold or laryngitis, voice that has been hoarse and changed for a long time might result from a problem in the vocal cords.
The human voice is created when both sides of the vocal folds make a vibration. When the vocal folds are immobile or disturbed by a bump on either of them, our voice becomes rough and hoarse.
Vocal cords are also a part of human body. As the muscles in our body get feeble with age, vocal cords become weak and our voice also ages. You should suspect an “aging voice” if you often experience choking while eating or your voice is characterized by reedy roughness and weak voice.
Today, with phonoplastic surgery, aging voice can be treated to sound young, and rough voice can be cleared. If your vocal folds have been changed because of a bump or hardened flesh on the vocal folds, these can be removed through surgery. In case the vocal folds do not make a vibration owing to their immobility, injection with a bulking substance is required. It is the same case with the aging voice resulting from weakened muscle in vocal folds. Bulging the vocal cord can make its vibration easier and change the hoarse and rough voice to clear voice.
