After plenty of speculation as to his motives, it looks like Bruce Jenner is finally ready to show off the results of his Adam’s apple surgery. Earlier in the week, Bruce was out and about, with his neck free of turtlenecks and scarves.
TMZ initially broke the news that Bruce was investigating having his Adam’s Apple reduced, which was surprising news given that it is generally one of the first steps in a male to female transformation. After the rumors broke, it was announced that Bruce would hold off on the procedure, which he said he was interested in having because “I just never liked my trachea.”
While Bruce has yet to confirm whether or not he is in transition,Bruce’s appearance has become significantly more feminine over the years, with each facelift making him appear to be a little softer. Not helping the rumors is the fact that some have said he has been cross dressing for years and the fact that Bruce was spotted with long, manicured fingernails.
In the new photos of Bruce showing off his shaved trachea, Bruce still has the long locks he has been wearing since his split from Kris Jenner. However, it looks like Bruce has treated himself to an appointment at the hair salon ahead of filming for Keeping up with the Kardashians, as his hair appears to be thicker and he looks to have gotten a dye job with the ombre effect currently popular with young women, including his stepdaughters. The new photos also seem to indicate that Bruce is suffering from gynecomastia, more commonly referred to as “man-boobs.” His condition is surprising considering he is a former Olympic athlete that remains very active, even at 64. If the rumors are true, then it is possible that Bruce is taking hormonal supplements to help develop breasts. Otherwise he should wear a more flattering shirt to stop the rumors.
Bruce was thought to initially be undergoing the Adam’s apple shaving procedure in December, but held off until mid January under public scrutiny. The laryngeal shave — which starts at $5,000 — “is, in many cases, a part of gender-reassignment surgeries,” explains NYC-based cosmetic surgeon Michael Jones. “But that’s not the only reason to have it.”
Indeed, Bruce has said that he simply didn’t like his Adam’s apple and because he has had plastic surgery in the past may not have hesitated before going under the knife.
As for his kids, his sons reportedly fully support his decision to reduce his Adam’s apple.
According to a source on RadarOnline, “The boys don’t think their father is trying to become a woman and simply laugh at rumors.”
However, they do believe his association with the Kardashians is what is responsible for Bruce being so concerned with his appearance and his willingness to go under the knife.
“They do believe that Bruce became more conscience of his physical appearance and how he looked after Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered,” the insider explained.
“They blame their step-mother (Kris Jenner) for all of the plastic surgery he has had over the years.
“Kris always encouraged Bruce to have his face nipped and tucked. He has had plastic surgery to remove excess fat above his eyelids. The Adam’s apple surgery is just following in that pattern.”none
