Tessica Brown, the woman whose hair’s been Gorilla Glued for more than a month, finally has sweet relief as Ghanaian-American plastic surgeon, Dr. Obeng has saved her hair.
Tessica took up Bev Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng on his offer to perform the $12,500 procedure for free, and it was a pretty grueling process. … about 4 hours long!
TMZ shot the whole thing, from start to finish, and it’s wild to see it play out — and to see the relief on Tessica’s face when it was all said and done.
Tessica was under a light anesthesia during the procedure, you’ve gotta see her reaction as she came out of it, and immediately reached for her hair. She got pretty choked up once she realized she could once again run her fingers through it.
Tessica Brown went viral when she had swapped out her normal hair spray for Gorilla Glue Spray Adhesive, thinking she’d be able to wash it out a few hours later. Since then she’s been through the wringer … suffering severe headaches, trying at-home remedies and even went to the ER, but everything just made her scalp burn intensely.
After surgery, she says she can’t wait to get her hair back to that length, and it is pretty amazing how much of her hair Dr. Obeng was able to save.
