He has long said he hates his trachea, but that’s not the real reason for the surgery
Bruce Jenner is now living apart from his wife of many years, Kardashian – Jenner matriarch Kris Jenner and, according to ongoing reports, he’s using the newfound freedom to make the transition to a woman. He recently had his Adam’s apple shaved off.Bruce never made a secret of the surgical interventions he’s had so far, including a couple on his face to remove skin cancer and several for purely aesthetic reasons. This is one intervention that he would have probably wanted to be kept a secret.
In December, he was spotted leaving a doctor’s office; because said doctor specialized in an intervention known as laryngeal shave, it didn’t take long for people to put 2 and 2 together and discover the real purpose of the visit.
Jenner was so upset that word of his plans got out that he canceled them immediately but, since then, he had been shopping for another doctor to perform the intervention under more discrete circumstances, Radar Online says.
Said and done: Bruce went into “the Beverly Hills Surgical Center in the early morning hours of Jan. 19 to have the procedure with famed plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen J. Pincus,” the publication says, citing the latest print issue of The National Enquirer.
The tab even has photos of Bruce leaving the clinic with bandages on his neck, and Radar stresses that the laryngeal shave is “the facial feminization process prior to gender reassignment surgery,” thus feeding into a rumor that has been making the rounds for months.
Having Bruce photographed a few days ago with perfectly manicured and long fingernails did nothing to end speculation that he’s in the process of becoming a woman.
“The car took him back to his Malibu home, and he was told no talking for a few days. He was also told to stay off his feet for the rest of the day — to just take it easy and rest,” a spy tells the tab about the laryngeal shave.
Before Bruce went under the knife, the tipster continues, the former Olympic champ and reality star also spoke to the doctor “at length” about getting gender reassignment surgery next.
