The Ridiculous Reason This Jenner Might Get Plastic Surgery


Ok, I know you thought it was going to be Kris Jenner when you clicked on this post. Maybe even Kendall or Kylie. But nope, the Jenner who is thinking of going under the knife is none other than…Bruce! Apparently, the Jenner/Kardashian family patriarch recently met with a plastic surgeon to consult about a “laryngeal shave,” aka a procedure that lessens the Adam’s apple.


A laryngeal shave is usually done on patients who are undergoing MTF gender reassignment surgeries, but Bruce says that’s not the reason why he wants the surgery. Bruce Jenner told TMZ:

“I just never liked my trachea.”

Bruce originally visited his plastic surgeon because he wants surgery done on his nose for a scar that didn’t heal well after he had basal cell carcinoma removed, but reportedly stayed to consult about his trachea.

You know what? I feel really sad for Bruce. I’m sure he doesn’t need the sympathy of some random blogger, but it must suck to be a famous, former professional athlete who still struggles with body image issues, especially issues like not liking your trachea. I mean, your TRACHEA?! I imagine most people never give their trachea a second thought, but when you’re living in a fame-mongering fishbowl of a reality show, it seems like every possible thing you dislike about your body must become magnified.

Bruce has had plenty of plastic surgery in the past, but trachea surgery sounds fucking painful, especially for an elective surgery. I hope, if Bruce ends up getting it, it brings him the body confidence he’s looking for. And I hope Kris Jenner has to bring him endless popsicles and glasses of water and ice packs while he recovers.

    Weirdly enough (and embarrassingly enough, since I just wrote a post about wanting my ears pinned), I’ve thought about getting something done to my neck because it’s oddly-shaped. Necks are weird, though, and the idea of healing plastic surgery on your throat sounds AWFUL.

    I thought Bruce and Kris were separated? So the Wicked Witch of the West wouldn’t be around to give him popsicles. :(

    I think that’s kind of sad that he Hayes himself so much he would be willing to go through that, it sounds terrible. I’m also surprised he would be willing to go under the knife again after his nose job got so botched.

    Considering the rumors that have been around about Bruce forever along with his changed appearance over the last six months or so (increasingly “feminine”) I can’t help but see this as part of a desire to appear more feminine.

    And would anyone judge that? If he came out and said- yes, I feel more comfortable making my exterior appearance fit how I feel internally so I’m doing this- no one would say oh poor Bruce- he’s so influenced by body image issues. So if he’s doing it for some body image problem- why do we judge that? Do we really need to know his internal motivation in order to “decide” whether it’s a “good enough” reason?

    Plastic surgery has turned out as a style statement for your family! Well.. I am thinking of undergoing a forehead lift surgery. My face started showing signs of ageing and I know ageing process is something we can’t stop but still I want to look younger at least for some more years. Hope it will all work out good!
