The controversial Nigerian cosmetic surgeon, and CEO of Med Contour Medical and Laser Hospital, Dr. Anu Adepoju has finally responded to allegations leveled against on her botched surgeries.
Speaking to Abisola Alawode of Legit.ng, Dr. Anu, who was accused of negligence and attempted ploy to kill Omohtee who called her out recounted how she was blackmailed by a popular blogger.
She also reacted to claims that she sacrifices some of her clients for ritual use.
Speaking during the interview, she said;
“As at the time Omohtee said her but cheeks was numb and not the same, she was 4 months post op. At first, skin numbness is normal post-surgery. For some people it takes longer, it depends on your body. However, with proper post-operative care, that should not last for long. You are supposed to have surgery massage that will stimulate your blood vessels; it also helps with tissue profusion.
“Some patients are not able to do all of this because of financial constraints or distance. We tell them what to do and they tell us we have someone who can do this for me at home and then they go home and you have some that you tell not to sit for two weeks or two months and you find them sitting, you tell patients you cannot drink or smoke and they go behind your back and do all these things.
“Once this happens, they have delayed healings and say it is the fault of the doctor. If only Omohtee came to us to complain about issues she was having. She never told us her abdomen was numb, we found out on social media. She came back to us once to complain about the size of her butt cheeks and we tell our patients that no two parts are the same and even if you think there is a difference, it is not noticeable and you need to give it time.
“All we needed to do was reassure her if she came to us about these issues but we heard about them like anybody else on social media and we needed to educate the public about what truly happened. We have no patient die on our table. In the history of our operation, we have never had any patient die on our table.”
Doctor Anu was charged to court by the Federal Government today, Friday July 3 over alleged botched surgery.
The surgeon was arrested Federal Competitive and Consumer Protective Commission (FCCPC) at 11:33am on Wednesday for carrying out a botched cosmetic surgery that led to the death of one Mrs Nneka Miriam Barbra Onwuzuligbo among other allegations.
She was however released on bail by the presiding judge.
