The proprietress of Med Contour clinic, Dr. Anu Adepoju has been suspended from the medical profession in Nigeria as a result of multiple claims of malpractice and botched surgeries at her clinic.
There have been a series of complaints from a number of women who went to Med Contour for cosmetic surgery. A particular patient reportedly died of complications she suffered from after being operated upon by Dr. Anu.
According to LIB, Lagos State Teaching Hospital, LUTH petitioned the medical panel following the death of the victim of Dr. Anu’s procedure who died after being transferred to its hospital earlier this year,(read here).
Following another botched surgery, a popular social media personality, Omotola Taiwo Temilade, professionally known as Omohtee, called Dr. Anu out this year also for complications she encountered.
On her own part, Dr. Anu has continued to insist that she’s a qualified cosmetic surgeon, having undergone the necessary training. She said she is a graduate of University of Lagos College of Medicine Class of 2015, after which she went abroad to study cosmetic surgery, making her a Physician member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
In addition, She said she has performed over 300 successful surgeries and blamed patients’ complications on their failure to follow post-surgery care guidelines that she gives because they think they know better.
Recall that in July 2020, Dr. Anu was arraigned in court before Justice Mohammed Liman of the Federal High Court, Lagos, by the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, over her services which allegedly resulted in the death of Nneka.
She has now been suspended from the medical profession in Nigeria and, according to a popular medical doctor, Dr. Olufunmilayo. He said she cannot practice anywhere else in the world.
