Embattled Plastic Surgeon Dr Anu Reportedly Suspended From Medical Practice In Nigeria

Dr Anu Arrested & Charged To Court OnoBello

Controversial cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Anu Adepoju has reportedly been suspended from practising by the Nigerian Medical and Dental board following multiple claims of malpractice and botched surgeries at her Lagos-based clinic, Med Contour.

Recall that several women who patronized her clinic have complained about having complications which some still suffer from. One particular patient was rushed to Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) and eventually died after being operated upon by Dr Anu, drawing online outrage.

Earlier this year, LUTH petitioned the medical panel following the death of the victim of Dr Anu’s procedure who died after being transferred to its hospital. Dr Anu, however, continued to insist that she’s a qualified cosmetic surgeon and has undergone the necessary training.

According to her, 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 added that she has performed over 300 successful surgeries and blamed patients’ complications on their failure to follow post-surgery care guidelines.

Dr Anu was pictured in court in July 2020 when the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, arraigned her before Justice Mohammed Liman of the Federal High Court, Lagos, over her services which allegedly resulted in the death of one Mrs. Nneka Miriam Barbra Onwuzuligbo.

She has now been suspended from the medical profession in Nigeria and, according to a UK-based Twitter influencer, Dr Olufunmilayo. Sharing the information on Twitter, he noted that the “suspension Order was issued by the Medical and Dental Practitioners Investigation Panel pursuant to powers conferred on it by s15(3)c of the Medical and Dental Practitioners Act Cap M8 LFN 2004.”

According to him, “she graduated from College of Medicine Unilag 2017. By December 2018 she carried out a Plastic Reconstructive Aesthetic Surgery procedure on a patient who developed complications and went on to die from the complications.

“She was a House Officer when she carried out the procedure. Her suspension is till further notice. It is pending the determination of the case by the Medical and Dental Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal.”

He also added that Dr Anu would not be able to practice anywhere in the world.
