How to Make Your Adam's Apple Look Smaller

Your Adam's apple is that small ball-like protrusion that moves up and down in the front of your neck whenever you swallow. It's more visible in men than women. During puberty, growth spurts in boys make the Adam's apple more noticeable because while your body thins out, the Adam's apple grows. If your prominent Adam's apple is bothering you, there are some things you can do to make it appear smaller.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Camouflage the size of your Adam's apple with make-up.

    Dust contouring powder over your Adam's apple. Use a powder that is up to two shades darker than your skin tone. Darker colours make the area look smaller.

  2. 2

    Gain weight by increasing your caloric intake.

    The increase of body fat makes your Adam's apple less prominent. Gain enough weight until you are happy with the appearance of your neck.

  3. 3

    Consult your doctor about undergoing surgery to make your Adam's apple smaller.

    Adam's apple surgery, also known as a tracheal shave, is done under complete or local anaesthesia and reduces the size of the Adam's apple by removing excess cartilage.

Tips and warnings

  • Wear turtlenecks, scarfs or chokers to hide your Adam's apple.
