Bum Implants (Butt) Surgeon | London, UK | Mr. Ivo Gwanmesia Skip to main content

A large, shapely bum has become increasingly popular over the years. Your bum can play an important role in creating the attractive curves you desire, and bum implants can be used to achieve the body profile and customized derrière you desire.

You May Consider Bum (Butt) Implants if…

  • You have flat, poorly defined Bum
  • You lack the dramatic curves that can only be achieved through shapely bum
  • You desire customized results
  • You don’t have the fat deposits necessary for a Brazilian Bum Lift


Bum implant surgery is an outpatient procedure performed with the patient under a general anesthetic. Bum implants are created from cohesive silicone. We choose your implant size and shape based on your unique body shape and your desired Bum size. Incisions are created in the superior part of the crease between the bum and are 5 cm long. The implant is then positioned between the gluteal muscles, and the incisions are closed and dressed. A drain is also inserted at the time of the surgery and removed after seven days.

*It is important to note that you should never receive loose silicone injections, as these can be dangerous to your health; bum implants are safe and created from silicone encased within a silicone shell.


You will experience initial bruising and swelling after your surgery and will be given a garment that should be worn for six weeks. You cannot apply pressure to the bum for two to three weeks following surgery. After this time, modified sitting positions can be used to reduce the weight placed on your implants for a period of time. You will need to limit all physical activities during your recovery. Most people are back to their regular routines after two months.


Once healed, bum implants provide you with a permanent enhancement of your bum. Unlike other bum enhancement procedures, which use fat, the size increase using implants is predictable and lasts as long as the implants are in place.


Incisions are placed in the natural creases along the bum, which helps to mask any resulting scarring. If visible scars do develop, they are easily covered with clothing. Scars are likely to fade over time.

Buttock Implants vs Brazilian Butt Lift

What’s the difference between these procedures and who is the ideal candidate for each? It’s not always clear cut, and some patients may be eligible candidates for both buttock-enhancing procedures. Some patients are suitable to combine the treatments. Read Dr Gwanmesia’s recent article explaining how these popular procedures differ and outlining his approach.
