Bruce Jenner to remove his Adam's apple because he doesn't like his trachea

14 December 2013, 15:34

Los Angeles - Bruce Jenner reportedly wants to remove his Adam's apple.

The former Olympic gold medallist, who announced his split from Kris Jenner after 22 years of marriage in October, met with a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills on Thursday for a consultation about a procedure called a Laryngeal Shave, which would smooth out the lump in his neck.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told gossip website TMZ.com that he hasn't decided whether he will undergo the surgery, which is typically done on patients who are in the first stage of gender reassignment.

The 64-year-old reality TV star also insisted that is not why he wants to have the procedure, and added: "I just never liked my trachea."

Sources revealed that Thursday marked Bruce's second visit to the plastic surgeon's office recently and his doctor took photographs of him.

An insider also claimed that the surgery has been scheduled for early next year.

Bruce, who has six children, including models Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and four stepchildren, including Kim Kardashian, underwent a procedure to remove cancerous cells from his nose in September.

The retired athlete also went under the knife in 2009 to fix a botched nose job and partial facelift he had in 1984, which was documented on his family's E! series.
