Of course, rumors have been swirling as to why the reality star would choose to undergo a laryngeal shave, most notably that he’s taking the first steps towards becoming a woman. Ask his sons Brandon and Brody, however, and they’re likely to tell you their father is simply addicted to surgery.
“They blame their stepmother [Kris Jenner] for all of the plastic surgery he’s had over the years,” a source reveals to RadarOnline.com. “Kris always encouraged Bruce to have his face nipped and tucked. He’s had plastic surgery to remove excess fat about his eyelids. The Adam’s apple surgery is just following in that pattern.”
While it’s true that Bruce has had plenty of work done since marrying Kris in 1991, the Olympic gold medalist started getting nips and tucks long before they were a couple. Bruce underwent his first nose job and partial facelight in 1984, later having it corrected with a second facelift in 2009.
Few of us can even remember what Bruce looked like before his love affair with plastic surgery. (Hell, some of weren’t even born when he had his first procedure!) If you, too, are curious about a pre-nipped Bruce Jenner, click through our gallery to see what he looked like in high school!
