Combination voice therapy and surgery

Voice feminization surgery only focusses on pitch and due to Leung et al. (2018) Speaking fundamental frequency contributes to 41.6% of the variance in gender perception. So if we would only work on pitch, it wouldn’t be enough to be perceived as female. This is why voice therapy in is highly recommended.
