Oluwafemi ‘Tijion’ Esho has been found guilty by a medical tribunal in the UK of engaging in inappropriate behavior with a patient.

The UK-based cosmetic doctor of Nigerian descent engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a patient, exchanging free Botox for intimate relations, the tribunal revealed.

Botox injections involve using a toxin to temporarily paralyze muscles and are commonly used to reduce facial wrinkles. Esho, known for his appearances on various TV shows, admitted to an emotional connection with the patient, identified as an OnlyFans model.

Patient A alleged that she received complimentary Botox in exchange for s*xual favors at Esho’s clinic, as well as engaging in inappropriate conversations on Instagram. The Medical Tribunal Practitioners Service (MPTS) determined that Esho indeed traded botox treatment for s*x with the patient, despite his denial of any physical intimacy.

The panel, based in Manchester, concluded that Esho had engaged in s*xual activity with the woman at his Newcastle clinic in 2021 and provided botox without charge, stating that he believed he could exchange the treatment for s*xual services.

The committee determined that the doctor’s actions were driven by sexual motives, but they did not consider Patient A to be vulnerable due to her profession.

In reply, Esho, the founder of the Esho Clinic with branches in London, Liverpool, and Dubai, expressed his disappointment with the ruling made by the MPTS.

He maintained that he solely engaged in exchanging “inappropriate” sexual messages on Instagram and never engaged in any form of physical sexual contact with the woman. Additionally, he offered his apologies for his behavior.

“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 s*xual 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 likely to reconvene later in April to determine if Esho’s fitness to practice has been compromised as a result of his wrongdoing.
