LUTH want surgeon investigated over client’s death from botched butt implant  

563, Nneka Onwuzuligbo

The Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, said cosmetic surgeon and owner of Med Contour Aesthetic Clinic, Dr Anuoluwapo Adepoju, should be investigated over the death of Miss Nneka Onwuzuligbo, from a botched butt implant and surgical body modification.

LUTH and Dr Adepoju have been trading blames over who between them caused Nneka’s death.

In a petition to the Medical and Dental Practitioners’ Investigation Panel, the hospital distanced itself from the death of the lady in question whose inordinate desire to have a certain kind of butt and figure led to her death.

It said, the damage had already been done by Dr Adepoju before Nneka was transferred to the hospital.

Quoting the petition, wrote: “She was noted to have significant deterioration of the vital signs before referral to LUTH for intensive care management on account of progressively worsening symptoms.

“Details of the surgical intervention subsequently received from Dr Adepoju (Exhibit A) showed that she had liposuction of the anterior abdomen, back, flanks and arms with fat transfer to the buttocks and hips. The surgery was done under spinal anaesthesia. The tumescent technique was used where three litres of fluid were infused into the patient and five litres of fluid were aspirated. She had two pints of blood transfused before presentation on account of anaemia.

“The account given about the patient further had it that there was no previous history of similar presentation in past surgery of myomectomy done three years before the liposuction and fat grafting. It was revealed that on the second day after the surgery, she was noticed to have persistent foul-smelling discharge from all the surgical sites.”
