The Surgeon that Helped Tessica Brown Remove Glue from Her Hair

Tessica Brown's story went viral when she used Gorilla Glue on her hair. Brown, 40 tried everything she could to get the glue out of her and nothing would work. As she grew frustrated and scared she went to Tik Tok to ask for help.

Dr. Michael Obeng, director of Miko Plastic surgery in Beverly Hills came to her rescue.

The procedure was a huge success and Tessica is recovering from surgery to remove the polyurethane adhesive.


Every year for the past 14 years (except last year due to COVID) Dr Obeng goes to different 3rd world countries to do free reconstructive surgeries (like operation smile) Funds everything but most of the time he pays for it out of pocket. 

If you could plug RESTORE that would be great. We are so grateful and thank you for your support.
