According to popular online doctor, Dr Olufunmilayo on Twitter, Dr Anu Adepoju of Med Contour has been suspended.
He broke the news saying the doctor has been suspended from the medical profession in Nigeria following multiple claims of malpractice and botched surgeries at her clinic, Med Contour.
Recall Dr Anu has been in the news with some saying a beauty queen died after she had a cosmetic surgery on her in 2018. More recently a lady who was allegedly operated upon by Dr Anu was rushed to LUTH due to complications from her cosmetic surgery. She eventually died.
It’s said LUTH petitioned the medical panel following the death of the victim. And the battle began.
Also popular social media personality, Omotola Taiwo Temilade, popularly known as Omohtee, called out Dr Anu following a botched surgery that left her with complications.
Dr Anu has continued to insist that she’s a qualified cosmetic surgeon and has 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.
She has said patients’ complications is their failure to follow post-surgery care guideline she gave them.
Dr Olufunmilayo shared the news of her suspension writing: “Dr. Anu of Med Contour has now been suspended from the medical profession in Nigeria. Remember her viral story was all over social media when Omohtee said she ruined her buttocks. Dr Anu was alleged of also killing a beauty queen in 2018 who she did surgery on.
“Dr. Anuoluwapo Olufunmi Adepoju has been suspended from the medical profession in Nigeria with effect from 5th November 2020.
