Tessica Brown, the woman who went viral after she used Gorilla Spray Adhesive in her hair, underwent a successful surgery.

As reported by TMZ on Thursday, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng performed a grueling, four-hour surgery on Brown, who has had the Gorilla Glue product on her head for over a month.

After the surgery was complete, Brown was seen on video getting emotional, as she was able to finally run her fingers through her hair.

“I can scratch it,” Brown said, as she felt her locks.

Last week on TikTok, Brown explained that when she ran out of her usual hair spray, Got2b Glued, she used the Gorilla Glue product instead.

“Bad, bad, bad idea,” she said in the now-viral clip.

Although she washed it 15 times, Brown was forced to seek professional medical help when the glue would not come off.

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Brown was able to chop off her ponytail with help from friends and "Goof Off" superglue remover.

Gorilla Glue — which previously released a statement saying their “product is not indicated for use in or on hair as it is considered permanent” — issued another statement, obtained by TMZ, applauding Brown on her successful operation.

"We are glad that Miss Brown was able to be treated and we hope that she is doing well,” a representative told the outlet.

This week on our show, Loni — who has been heavily invested in Brown’s story — announced that Emmy-winning hairstylist Robbi Rogers has offered to make Brown a wig.

On Thursday, after reporting on Brown’s surgery, Loni reiterated the offer to gift Brown “a wig style of her choice, if she wants.”
