Bruce Jenner’s transition to female is reportedly getting serious. According to a report from RadarOnline, the former AP Male Athlete of the Year has undergone breast implant surgery and is in recovery.
“Bruce had silicone breast implants put in a few weeks ago,” a person close to the Jenner family told the entertainment and gossip site. “He went with a smaller implant because he didn’t want to look ridiculous.”
Jenner has been emotional, “but finally feels like this is the body he has meant to have,” the anonymous source claimed.
“Recovery hasn’t been that difficult, but Bruce has had to sleep in a recliner to help with the healing,” the source said. “He’s not allowed to lift anything, and he has to wear a bra 24/7, but he’s expected to resume normal activities in the next six weeks.”
According to Radar, the Olympic athlete-turned reality TV star had breast implants inserted earlier in March, to coincide with other procedures in recent months, including a chondrolaryngoplasty to shave down his Adam’s apple, and a rhinoplasty (nose job) in order to appear more feminine.
Jenner is now scheduled to undergo a “full gender reassignment surgery,” which will take place some time in May or June. The source told Radar Jenner might opt to upgrade his breast size, post-surgery.
The rumor mill is churning with ideas as to how Jenner will make his public debut as a woman. ABC’s Dancing With The Stars is reputedly interested in providing the venue, while an unnamed source claims it has been a lifelong dream of Jenner to grace the cover of Vogue magazine… as a glamorous female model.
“He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this,” the person said.
