UK-Based Nigerian Doctor Found Guilty of Exchanging Botox for Sex with Patient, Tribunal Rules

A UK-based cosmetic doctor of Nigerian descent, Oluwafemi ‘Tijion’ Esho, has been found guilty by a medical tribunal of exchanging free botox treatment for sex with a patient.

Botox injections are used to reduce facial wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles.

Esho, known for appearing on TV shows, admitted to having an improper emotional relationship with the patient, who works as an OnlyFans model.

The patient, referred to as Patient A, claimed she received free botox in exchange for sex at Esho’s clinic and said they exchanged inappropriate sexual messages on Instagram.

The tribunal found that Esho did exchange botox treatment for sex with the woman at his clinic in Newcastle in 2021 and also administered botox for free.

Additionally, the tribunal ruled that Esho told the woman he could give her botox in exchange for sexual services, indicating sexually motivated behavior.

While the tribunal determined that the doctor’s conduct was sexually motivated, it did not find Patient A to be vulnerable due to her profession.

In response, 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 disappointed that the MPTS has today found against me in relation to the charges which I denied,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Throughout the hearing and investigation, with which I have cooperated fully, I stressed that I deeply regretted the mistakes which I made in engaging in communications with Patient A, and I admitted to the charges which related to those serious errors of judgement.

“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.”

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