A woman spent USD $7,000 to reduce the size of her forehead because she thought it was too huge.
Camila Coleman Brooks, 26, a model for ten years used her fringes to hide her 8.5cm forehead as she disliked the way it looked.
Coleman underwent the forehead reduction surgery which went on for two-and-a-half hours. Her hairline was moved, reducing her forehead by 3cm.
“I used to look in the mirror and all I would see was a huge forehead,” Coleman said.
She said when she was younger, she would style her hair in a way so that her huge forehead was disguised. She was using fringes or hats to hide it, but now after the surgery, she is pretty much satisfied.
“I didn’t need the procedure to make me happy, but I love how I now look,” she said.
“Having surgery was something I wanted to do for myself. It wasn’t that I didn’t like how I looked, I just wanted to be more proportional.”
In February, Coleman decided to put an end to all her hacks and go for a surgery instead and headed to a clinic in Ohio. Here, a part of her skin was removed to reduce the size. The doctor made an incision along the hairline and carefully removed a part of it.
First few days after the surgery were difficult as she couldn’t move her eyebrows properly.
“The top part of my forehead is still numb and it may take a while for the feeling to return there.”
A scar also remains, but should be healed in some weeks.
