It is time for Axl to have surgery on his vocal chords or inject them with steroids. 



He had a face lift afterall. But he has to exercise, so it will never happen lol


The voice lift does not necessarily mean surgery. Most of what is known as a voice lift can be achieved through exercise alone, according to Dr. Sataloff. “At least 75 to 80 percent of people looking for improvement can achieve their goals through voice therapy and rehabilitation,” he said. “One reason I wish I hadn’t invented the term ‘voice lift’ is that it makes people think they can get a quick operation and go home. It doesn’t work that way.”

The voice lift begins with a thorough exam to rule out other health problems. Laryngeal pathology, including laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPR), nodules and polyps, must be excluded. Emphysema and other lung problems that can reduce the airflow needed to produce sound also need to be considered.

Treatments for other health problems may affect the voice, too. “Medications for high blood pressure, depression and other disorders can affect the voice,”


Once health problems are discovered and addressed, patients begin vocal therapy, which involves aerobic exercise to increase lung capacity and voice training to strengthen the vocal folds.

As a person’s vocal folds age and the intrinsic laryngeal muscles atrophy, the folds may no longer close tightly, allowing air to escape and creating a breathy voice. The person develops presbyphonia, characterized by hoarseness, reduced loudness, increased breathiness, strain and tremor. Filler injections can temporarily add mass to the vocal folds, while autogenous adipose tissue injections can produce a permanent increase in density. If the vocal folds need more bulk, tiny shims made out of Gore-Tex or Silastic can be implanted.

“We make an incision in a skin crease over the lower part of the larynx and make a small hole in the laryngeal cartilage through which we place the shims,” Dr. Sataloff said. “This brings the vocal folds closer to the midline, so, instead of a gap, the patient has good, firm vocal fold contact, and hence a strong voice with low effort.”

As voice problems become more widespread with increased longevity, treatments are likely to become more effective, according to Dr. Johns. “If we could rejuvenate tissue through biomanipulation, we would have treatment options that could advance the possibilities for presbyphonia,” he said. “And these options may not be as far off as it seems. There are outstanding researchers looking for ways to deliver growth factors and stem cells to rejuvenate aging vocal fold tissue.
