Renowned Ghanaian-American plastic surgeon, Dr Michael Obeng is offering to help a Louisiana woman who used Gorilla Glue, a permanent bonding adhesive to hold down her hair.
Forty-year-old Tessica Brown went viral on social media after she posted videos on Tik Tok on February 3 expressing regret for using the permanent glue on her hair after she ran out of hairspray.
In the video, Brown, who has been nicknamed the ''Gorilla Glue Girl'' by social media users after her clip went viral revealed her hair has since not moved for about a month despite trying herself and visiting the hospital to get the glue removed.
Brown traveled to the Beverly Hills office of Dr Michael Obeng on Wednesday to get help from the renowned Ghanaian plastic surgeon.
Dr Obeng offered to help after seeing a video Brown posted on TikTok, expressing agony.
''The goal is to be able to dissolve the glue and not burn her scalp,'' Obeng revealed.
Aside from Dr Obeng's benevolence, a GoFundMe page has raised more than $18,000 (GHC104,580.) to support Brown.
YEN.com.gh previously reported that Dr Michael K Obeng is building a pharmaceutical plant in the country that is worth $11 million.
The renowned Ghanaian medical professional revealed that his underlying motivation behind this project is to strengthen pharmaceutical manufacturing in Africa.
This, according to Dr Obeng is in order to improve public health outcomes and to positively contribute to economic development across the continent.
