Rhinoplasty Follows Forehead Reduction Surgery After Feeling Self-Conscious About It For Ten Years
In 2021, Brooks had also gone viral after receiving a forehead reduction surgery. She says she hid her big forehead underneath a fringe prior to the procedure, and spent $6,958 on a surgery to reduce it by 3 centimeters, according to the Daily Mail.
Brooks, from North Carolina, spent years with a fringe to disguise and cover up her 8.5 centimeter forehead. For comparison, the average female forehead size is around 6 centimeters in the US.
At the time, she says she decided to go ahead with the forehead reduction surgery, claiming she has always disliked the way her forehead looked, which kept her feeling self-conscious over the last ten years.
