Cosmesis is a prime concern for many patients undergoing thyroid surgery. Postthyroidectomy scar-related apprehension among patients has forced the surgeons to develop techniques to reduce the scar or even without scar. We report a case of a young female with thyroid nodule who underwent transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy done through a novel technique (transoral vestibular approach using two ports) at our center as potentially scarless thyroid surgery.
