Did Chaz Bono Undergo Weight Transformation? Find All the Details Here!
Chaz Salvatore Bono, writer, actor, and musician, became a trailblazer for other trans actors when he publicly came out as one in 2009. Bono started as a child actor in The Sonny & Cher Comedy, a variety show that starred Bono's parents, Sonny Bono and Cher. Chaz's other notable works include Bar Girls, Dirty, 3 From Hell, and Reboot Camp.

In 2012, in conversation with Rolling Stones, the musician revealed he was considering and saving for penile reconstruction. "It's something he will consider in an appropriate time," Bono's publicist, Howard Bragman, told ABC news. "It's not something that is imminent and not something he believes will make him a man," he further added.
After legally changing his name and gender in 2010, Chaz released his book Transition: The Story of How I Become a Man, where he details some shocking turns of his unexpected life, but Bono doesn't reveal if he had indeed undergone bottom surgery. "I've decided to keep my privates private," he writes.
