Bruce Jenner Reportedly Schedules 'Big' Surgery That Will Change Everything

Bruce JennerBruce Jenner's reported transition to a woman has been in the tabloids for months, but it's finally beginning to look like this is real, despite still no word from Bruce himself. He is set to speak out on Diane Sawyer on April 24, so at that point, we should hear the truth about what is happening. But there is one major thing left for Bruce to do to make his full transition to a woman, and that is to get sex change surgery on his genitals -- supposedly, that has now been scheduled.

Bruce has reportedly already undergone a trachea shave, nose job, breast implants, and hormone therapy all in his quest to have his outsides match his insides, but the big surgery is the one that will remove his "manhood." A surgeon who hasn't treated Bruce explains to RadarOnline that this is very intensive surgery that could last up to eight hours.

Said Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Mel Ortega:

The testicles are history but the rest is preserved to create the neo-vagina. The tissue is never removed from the body, with the exception of incorporating skin grafts if there’s isn’t enough material.

I looked at doctor-made vaginas online and they look just like regular ones, if you ask me. It's pretty amazing.

No doubt Bruce has looked forward to this moment for years, even decades, however, it still must be scary. Any major surgery is nerve-wracking, but surgery that deals with such a delicate and private area must be really nerve-wracking. That is one place you don't want to end up with an infection or anything going wrong.

I imagine Bruce's kids must be worried too. Hopefully everything goes well and Bruce is finally able to live life as the woman he reportedly feels he always was.
