Is Bruce Jenner really contemplating a sex change? Several weeks ago, the reality star reportedly inquired about a flattening procedure on his Adam's Apple. Now, National Enquirer claims Kris Jenner's ex went through with the surgery.
According to the magazine, Bruce Jenner visited the Beverly Hills Surgical Center earlier this week, When he departed, he supposedly had bandages covering his neck. This implies that he may have had a laryngeal shave. A laryngeal shave involves the flattening of the Adam's Apple and is a common procedure for men undergoing a sex change. So naturally, reports are flying that Bruce Jenner secretly wants to be a woman. In fact, a source told Enquirer that this rumored Adam's Apple surgery was just the first step in a process.
"He was also told to stay off his feet for the rest of the day — to just take it easy and rest," a source said. "But before Bruce had his Adam's apple shaved down, he talked to the doctor at length about having his penis removed next."
Of course, the National Enquirer is not the most trustworthy of sources, so we have to take this report with a grain of salt. Still, this is not the first time tabloids wondered if Bruce Jenner was considering a sex change.
Rumors that Bruce Jenner wants to be a woman intensified last month when he reportedly asked a plastic surgeon about the laryngeal shave. Still, Jenner insisted at the time that he had no desire for a sex change.
"I just never liked my trachea," he told TMZ.
The next day, TMZ reported that Bruce Jenner canceled the Adam's Apple surgery. The reality star was reportedly upset that news of the procedure leaked to the press. But there were conflicting reports over whether Jenner canceled the laryngeal shave for good or whether he just planned to have it at another facility.
Meanwhile, this week's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians also fueled rumors that Bruce Jenner was considering a sex change. During Sunday's episode, the reality star sported long hair and manicured nails, leading some on Twitter to wonder if he really did want to be a woman.

Robert Kardashian's widow also claimed that Bruce Jenner secretly wanted to be a woman. Ellen Kardashian told Star that Bruce Jenner's first wife, Chrystie Crownover, believed he liked wearing female clothes.
"Of course Bruce was every woman's heartthrob when he was that age, right?" Ellen Kardashian said. "But Chrystie said, 'Yeah, until I went on a trip and I came back and he had gone through all my clothes. And I found my bras ... He'd clip them together and wear them.'"
