The growing demand for near perfect bodies via plastic surgeries in Nigeria, has created an influx of cosmetics clinics which in turn has created a full-blown money-making industry. From just one clinic, which was pioneered by Modupe Ozolua in the year 2000, who brought in doctors from America at least twice every year to perform surgeries via her company, Body Enhancement Ltd., there are now several clinics today in Nigeria that perform all manner of body enhancement surgery.

Still in its ‘puberty’ stage, the industry is no doubt gaining momentum, judging by the number of women and men who are recreating parts of their bodies that make them insecure, by embracing the technology that plastic surgery has to offer.
