Bruce Jenner Under the Knife Again – this Time it’s his Windpipe!

'I just never liked my trachea!' Bruce Jenner 'to undergo surgery to flatten his Adam's Apple'... a procedure normally part of a sex change

The man widely seen as the stepfather of the Kardashian clan including Kourtney, Khloe, Kim and Rob, and who married matriarch Kris Jenner in 1991, separating from her this fall, is to have surgery to flatten his Adam’s apple.

Bruce Jenner, 64, apparently met with a cosmetic surgeon in Beverley Hills this week to discuss the procedure called a “tracheal shave”, which is commonly used when a man is undergoing the initial stages of a change of gender.

Known medically as a chondrolaryngoplasty, the surgery lessens the amount of cartilage in the neck.

But the thrice-married former Olympic decathlon gold medalist denies wanting to become a woman, and insists:

“I just never liked my trachea.”

He also says that the removal this year of a cancerous growth, left a large scar on his nose, and this was why he spoke to the surgeon in the first place and happened to ask about his Adam’s apple while he was there.

It is reported that the surgery is likely to take place early next year. The op will hardly be the first time that Bruce has gone under the knife, and he admits himself that much of his earlier procedure has been “ill advised.” Still, way to go, Bruce!
