Billionaire Frank Lowy, the 84-year-old chair of Westfield and Scentre, has had brain surgery, a legacy of a fall in May.
Lowy, the chairman of the Football Federation of Australia, underwent a surgical procedure to correct a complication, most likely the result of a tumble from the stage during a presentation at the A-League Grand Final.
Westfield says the procedure was performed in Europe where he was holidaying. He is now out of hospital and is expected to make a full and rapid recovery.
A few days prior to the surgery, Lowy began to feel unwell and an examination revealed he had a subdural haematoma, which is not uncommon following trauma to the head.
“Mr Lowy is now resting comfortably and following a short convalescence will return to Australia,” says Westfield.
