Adepoju Anu, a Lagos-based doctor, has come under fire on Twitter after another lady accused the health practitioner of carrying out failed cosmetic surgery on her in Abuja.
In now-viral pictures of the alleged botched surgery, the client explained that she had engaged the services of the doctor because she had no knowledge about previous allegations against her.
The lady said she is based in New York and had returned to Nigeria 10 years after she left the country.
She noted that it was after the surgery that she got wind of the cosmetic surgeon’s past records.
According to the lady, the development has left her with fat necrosis — a condition that occurs when a person experiences an injury to an area of fatty tissue.
The client added that the surgery has continued to cause her untold pain, adding that “I am dying in Abuja.”
“Dr Anu has done it again o. She has been in Abuja doing surgery and giving them infection. Dr Anu gave me infection, fat necrosis. I’m dying in Abuja o. I live abroad, I live in New York. I didn’t know about Anu until I came down to Nigeria,” she wrote.
“I haven’t been in Nigeria for 10 years. It was after the surgery that I started hearing things about her. For real, you don’t have to be harsh on me. I just started following you of recent.

Recall the doctor was arraigned in Lagos last year after a failed cosmetic surgery which allegedly resulted in the death of the client.
Her arraignment had come at about the same time when MedContour Services Ltd, her medical facility in the commercial city, was shut down.
The development had also led to her suspension by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) at the time.
Adepoju had, however, hit back at her critics and blamed the complications on the disobedience of post-surgery rules.
The latest development has continued to ignite heated reactions on the microblogging platform.
Here’s what some Nigerians had to say:
First, putting fat in your buttocks is a risky surgery even when it’s done by professionals plastic surgeons
Not to talk of quacks like Dr Anu,

I think Nigerians are the easiest people to deceive, from Ponzi down to elections and now Dr. Anu.
Dr. Anu has a record of carrying out bad surgery or whatever on her client’s nyash but another daughter of Eve thought it wise to sacrifice her nyash, sorry but no sorry.

Dr Anu has had clients whose surgeries didn’t go south so it shouldn’t surprise you that she still gets recommended. The women that want her services mostly seek advice from peers and not Google.

Stop patronizing quacks.
Stop patronizing quacks.
Whenever you take your breasts or buttocks to one Dr Anu who is not a plastic surgeon to add fat to it, you are putting your life at risk.
You have only one life. Stop using it to patronize quacks.

Anybody that goes to that Dr Anu woman at this point doesn’t deserve your sympathy. There’s the internet with all its vital information but you chose to ignore it.
You’re on your own.

Well i don’t feel sorry for victims of Dr. Anu. Her info is literally all over social media but in the spirit of “It’s not my portion” they go with “faith”, falling for the same trap while expecting a different result. You literally chose to blow up your ANUs yourself. 🤷🏾

— Nnennaya❤️ (@Miss_Veraaa) May 16, 2021
You signed a disclaimer form with Dr Anu before going under the knife. Even after the bad track records she already have, you thought yours will be one of her success case. Now she has spoilt your nyansh and you are coming to us to cry. The person that swear for you has died.
