Popular Nigerian doctor and influencer, Dr. Chinonso Egemba, better known as Aproko Doctor, has advised women considering cosmetic surgery to ensure their surgeons are fully qualified.
Aproko Doctor gave this advice via his Twitter handle following the death of a 20-year-old lady, Destiny Jojo, after a butt lift procedure in Lagos.
Recall that Destiny Jojo passed away after a perceived botched Brazilian buttlift procedure.
The 20-year-old is said to have developed complications with breathing after the surgery and was rushed to a specialist hospital, where she passed on.
Reacting to the news, Aproko Doctor advised ladies seeking to undergo cosmetic surgery to make sure their surgeons are fully qualified.
“If you want to have cosmetic surgery, make sure your surgeon is fully qualified. Yes, every surgical procedure comes with risks, esp BBLs. A lady just died here in Lagos following one of these surgeries. May she RIP BBLs can be dangerous and carry a huge risk, so be aware.” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, a lady has claimed that the hospital where a 20-year-old lady died after undergoing cosmetic surgery was running a discounted promo.
The lady, in an online video, alleged that the hospital was offering discounts for the liposuction procedure.
She criticized the hospital for undervaluing the surgical procedure despite being aware of the risks involved. According to her, she doesn’t understand why a surgical procedure will be discounted when it is not a commodity.
