UK-Nigerian Cosmetic Doctor, Tijion Esho Exchanged Free Treatment For Sex With Patient -Medical Tribunal

The panel ruled Esho did have sexual intercourse with the woman at his clinic in Newcastle in 2021 and administered botox free of charge.

A popular UK-based cosmetic doctor of Nigerian descent, Oluwafemi ‘Tijion’ Esho exchanged free botox for sex with a patient, a medical tribunal has found. Botox injections are shots that use a toxin to prevent a muscle from moving for a limited time. The treatment is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.

Esho, who has been featured on several popular TV programmes, was said to have admitted to an improper emotional relationship with the patient, who is an OnlyFans model.

The woman, referred to as Patient A, earlier claimed she got free botox in return for sex at his clinic. She also alleged that they exchanged “inappropriate” sexual messages on Instagram.

During a recent hearing, the Medical Tribunal Practitioners Seevice (MPTS) found that Esho exchanged toxin treatment for sex with the woman. The 42-year-old doctor, who has several celebrity clients, had told the tribunal he never had any physical sexual contact with Patient A.

But the panel, during sitting in Manchester, ruled Esho did have sexual intercourse with the woman at his clinic in Newcastle in 2021 and administered botox free of charge.

The tribunal also ruled that the doctor told the woman he “could get away with giving her Botox in exchange for sexual services”. The panel found that the overall conduct of the doctor was sexually motivated, but it did not find Patient A to be vulnerable because of her profession.

The panel is expected to reconvene later in April to decide if Esho’s fitness to practice is impaired because of his misconduct.

Responding, Esho, who is the founder of the Esho Clinic, which also has locations in London, Liverpool and Dubai, said he was “disappointed” with the MPTS’ ruling.

He insisted that he only exchanged “inappropriate” sexual messages on Instagram but never had any physical sexual contact with the lady. He also apologised for his conduct.

“I am truly sorry for those actions, and apologise to everyone I let down as a result. However, I have always been clear that whilst my conduct in communicating with Patient A was wrong, I repeat categorically that it never crossed over into any physical sexual contact.

“Whilst I respect the MPTS and the process, I do not agree with its decision. My life’s work has been and will remain focused on helping people. I remain dedicated fully to this purpose. I am incredibly grateful to my patients and friends who supported me throughout this incredibly difficult period,”, he posted on Instagram.
