Aging Voice / Glottic Insufficiency

The muscles that control your voice are often affected by aging in the same way as other muscles in the body, resulting in lost volume and bulk, a process known as atrophy. The tissues that vibrate with speech also become thinner and stiffer over time, resulting in changes to the quality and strength of your voice that can cause you to sound “old.”

A voice lift rejuvenates weakened, older voices by injecting fat, collagen or other substances into the vocal cords to restore lost volume and produce a stronger, clearer voice. Synthetic implant materials may also be placed in the vocal cords through a surgical procedure. This procedure can be performed on nearly anyone unhappy with the effects of aging on their voice.
