Woman who splashed £9,000 on forehead reduction reveals real reason why she had surgery

Woman who splashed £9,000 on forehead reduction reveals real reason why she had surgery

She opened up about her life post-op

A woman who splashed out a small fortune on forehead reduction has revealed the real reason why she had the surgery in the first place.

Beth Halsey made headlines last month after opening up about her decision to go under the knife to have her hairline surgically lowered after being bullied at school for her 'fivehead'.

The 27-year-old, who lives in Colchester, Essex, forked out a whopping £9,000 for the three-hour procedure after hiding under her fringe for 20 years.

Beth first heard about hairline lowering surgery two years ago and began making enquiries before opting to go under the knife at the start of last month (5 March).

After three hours under local anaesthetic to remove part of the skin, Beth said her 'fivehead' has finally reduced to a forehead.

She previously said: "For some people having a fringe is absolutely fine but for me it got to the point where I then started hating the fringe as well as the forehead.

"I didn't want to be stuck with it forever."

Beth carried on: "When people say 'there's nothing wrong with me' that's not the compliment people think it is. It comes across as quite patronising.

"I know I don't have to have this surgery but it's going to change my life and it has."

Revealing she once 'never knew surgery was option', she said: "I learnt about this surgery, looked into it and went for the consultation and it was all amazing.

"They try to keep it looking natural and make sure your face still looks in proportion. My hairline was lowered by about an inch or just under."

Beth likened the healing process as feeling 'like a bad headache', adding that the pain was 'manageable'.

"There's an immediate difference," she gushed. "I'm over the moon with the results.

"Once it's healed I'll start venturing out with no fringe. This will be my first time going out with my forehead on show for 20 years!"

Since then, Beth has made an appearance on yesterday's airing (1 April) of This Morning to share a little more about the ins and outs of the ordeal.

The 27-year-old is thrilled with the results.

She told hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary that she is now buzzing over the results and that she can finally say bye-bye to her fringe once and for all.

Beth later admitted: "It was like a few nasty, teasing comments when I was in primary school - that was obviously the initial starting point.

"But then going forward, it's just an insecurity that I've always had and I don't know why, or what kind of the reason is that it continued. But it just did.

"Like I say, I've had a fringe my whole life. If I was going down the street on a windy day I'd be trying to cover it the whole time, or swimming in front of people that I didn't know very well... I was always just very conscious of it."

Elsewhere in the chat, Beth told ITV viewers that it was 'freeing' to no longer have to worry about her fringe flapping in the wind, adding: "I can be my true self and post pictures on Instagram."
