Popular socialite, Omotola Taiwo Temilade, aka Omohtee, who had called out Dr Anu Adepoju of MedContour following a botched cosmetic surgery, has told of how she became suicidal and had to spend millions to treat herself after the botched surgery.
She told BBC pidgin how she wanted to make her tummy flat, and “top up” her butt. She has decided to go for Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and Liposuction at MedContour.
She said she paid 1.2 million Naira for the procedure.
She said however that her body was a mess after the operation. She was not able to stand, and her knees were numb.
“After the surgery, I started having complications. I started having belly burns, waist burns, waist numb, and after two months I started having fat necrosis.
“Fat necrosis is when liquid fat that has turned into dirt starts coming out. The thing will just come out like boil, e go come burst, start to dey comot the fat.
“Up till now, my waist is still numb. As I stand up like this, my body is not complete. One is bigger than the other.
“The wound wey she inflict on me still dey heal. I still dey go hospital Evey two two days interval. And to dress the wound, sometimes 7,000, sometimes 10, 000 it depends because sometimes I fit open the wound make another fat necrosis don dey beside the wound. Them go need do operation to bring that one out. Sometimes, maybe the wound don catch infection, them go need do swab. I go buy drug, I go buy this one.
“Money wey I don spend has run into millions, more than money wey I even use do the surgery from am.
“The wound, e dey my belle, e dey my butt, e dey plenty places for my body.”
Following surgery she said she was unable to bathe alone and her brothers had to help carry her.
She added that she was depressed and was always talking about taking her life, so her brothers hid the knives in the house and any other dangerous objects.
She also said she is constantly wondering who would marry her now that everyone knows she has had a botched surgery. She said she does not have a boyfriend at the moment and she is not sure that anyone would want to be with her.
He said he shared her story for others to know, but when people ridiculed her and wished her dead, the reaction she received afterwards was terrible.
Reacting, Dr Anu put the blame on Omohtee for not following post-surgery instructions.
Dr Anu told BBC pidgin: “She come hospital come see us for follow up when she get issues. And usually, when you advice patients on wetin to do after surgery and them no follow am because dem feel say dey sabi how to take care of themselves e dey give issues and at the end of the day, them go say na doctor cause am.”
Doctor Anu insisted that she is qualified to perform cosmetic surgery. She added that she has never claimed to be a plastic surgeon.
