The general public has been warned about the patronage of Obengfo Advance Body Sculpting Centre.

According to the Medical and Dental Council, any person who visits Dr. Dominic Kwame Obeng-Andoh’s medical facility does so at their own risk and disadvantage.

The Council, in a communique, has cautioned the public, saying the owner of the facility has not been licensed to practise as a body sculpting specialist.

Dr. Obeng-Andoh registered as a general duty practitioner with his primary qualification. They have not registered any additional qualification with the Medical and Dental Council. So the Medical and Dental Council does not know Dr. Obeng-Andoh to be a specialist in plastic surgery,” Registrar of the Medical and Dental Council, Dr. Eli Atipkui, told Citi News in an interview.

He reiterated that the Medical and Dental Council does not acknowledge Dr. Dominic Kwame Obeng-Andoh as a specialist in plastic surgery and body sculpturing.

Dr. Obengfo, as he is popularly known, was freed by the court on the basis of insufficient evidence for practising medicine without licence and operating an unlicensed medical facility.

The court acquitted and discharged him on October 9, 2019.
