The plastic surgeon who freed “Gorilla Glue girl” Tessica Brown’s locks hopes his “magical solution” could take hold — and is “in talks” to make it commercially available.
Dr. Michael Obeng, 47, told TMZ that requests for surgery at his Beverly Hills business has seen a “hundredfold increase” since he saved the Louisiana mom’s hair, which had been stuck for more than a month when she used Gorilla Glue after running out of her usual spray.
He has also been contacted by companies hoping to produce the secret formula he came up with to successfully remove the tight-holding gunk.
“We have had a lot of inquiries,” he said of his “magical solution.”
“We are in talks … to go commercial and make it available for people who have had Crazy Glue, Gorilla Glue or any type of adhesive glue that is not easily dissolved,” he told the outlet.
Even if those plans don’t take stick, Obeng said business is soaring for his regular surgical work.
“We’ve had over 5,000 patient inquiries in the last 4 days … we’re not even equipped to go through that many people,” he said.
He’s not the only one hoping to profit from the sticky situation.
Mom of five Brown, 40, already has her own line of merchandise, and has hired a full-blown celebrity management team to help make the most of her viral infamy.
Her original TikTok clip about her hair disaster — in which she admitted using the glue was a “bad, bad, bad idea” — has been seen more than 36 million times by Wednesday.
