Tijion Esho is a British cosmetic doctor known for aesthetic medicine and non-surgical procedures, and is the founder of The ESHO Clinic. He is the resident cosmetic doctor on the E4 reality show; Body Fixers.
Early and personal life
Esho was born and grew up in North London and is of Nigerian descent. During his youth he attended Edmonton County Secondary School, and initially wanted to become an artist but due to his conservative African up-bringing he was encouraged not to follow this career option. In 2000, Esho started his education at Leicester Medical School, and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Medicine (MBCHB). In 2007 he completed his foundation year and the following year Esho completed his MRCS, then after completing junior (core training) surgical rotation training, Esho moved to the vocational training scheme (General Practice training scheme).
Esho started his career at the NHS as a surgical trainee, completing his junior training before training as a GP, and shortly after that he founded the Le Beau Ideal Lifestyle Clinic and then in 2013 "rebranded" to The ESHO clinic with locations in London and Newcastle upon Tyne. In early 2016, Esho launched Midas By Esho, a lip augmentation tool to help practitioners sculpt and position lips whilst making augmentations. Apart from the development of Midas, Esho has been involved in pioneering new techniques and methods in laser skin rejuvenation, lip augmentation with the Nano Droplet technique, Cupid’s Bow Lift and leading a Botox revolution with Robot Botox.In autumn 2017, Esho launched the ESHO product range in collaboration with beauty company Deciem. He has also advocated for stricter UK legislation when it comes to safety protocols for cosmetic surgery. He is not a surgeon however and is not trained to operate cosmetically.
In 2018 Esho coined the phrase "Snapchat dysmorphia" - the phenomenon of people requesting procedures to resemble their digital image.
In 2016, Esho was cast as the resident cosmetic doctor on E4’s non-scripted reality show; Body Fixers, a spin off from the hit show; Tattoo Fixers. Body Fixers was produced by Studio Lambert and first aired in September 2016, and in February 2017 it was announced that the show would run for a second season. Prior to Body Fixers, Esho had made guest appearances on Channel 4’s Bodyshockers.
The ESHO Initiative
In October 2016, Esho launched The ESHO Initiative in collaboration with Church Pharmacy and Cosmetronic. The main objective of the initiative is to provide corrective treatment free of charge, to patients who have been the victims of botched cosmetic procedures, those who have been born with congenital deformities and those who have experienced severe scarring or disfigurement, due to a life changing incident.
