The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) has said it will investigate a cosmetic surgery outfit, Med Contour, over alleged botched surgeries of patients.
In a letter signed by Tunde Irukera, the commission’s Chief Executive, it said Med Contour was found to likely engage in conduct “that is otherwise considered unprofessional, misleading and potentially injurious, including resulting in possible fatalities”.
Med Contour came under scrutiny after a Twitter user, @Omohtee12, complained of a botched surgery she had with the firm.
In the video she posted on her handle before it was deleted, she claimed to have spent huge sums of money to recover after the surgery, saying she had also suffered some mental trauma along the line.
The FCCPC however said it is not probing Med Contour for licensing or disciplinary reasons but for issues of authorisation of the business, operators and associates to carry out the surgery to an outcome promised to its customers as implicated under the Federal Competition and Customer Protection Act (FCCPA).

The commission also said it will gather information from customers who have had similar experiences with Med Contour to find out if their experiences were satisfactory.
It urged the public to come forward with useful information about their experiences with Med Contour.
