A graduate of Manchester University Medical School, Ivo is trained in all aspects of Plastic Surgery. He trained within the London Deanery, working in most of London’s Teaching Hospitals. He obtained his Certificate of Completion of Training in Plastic Surgery in November 2010. He spent all of 2011 working as a fellow within the Craniofacial Unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital. In August 2013, he left the UK for the United States where he undertook a 12 month fellowship in Craniomaxillofacial surgery at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, United States.

During his time at the Cleveland Clinic, Ivo spent time further subspecialising in adult and paediatric craniofacial surgery. He also undertook pioneering research which led to the development of a new technique for the reconstruction of the middle vault of the nose, known as the ‘Fulcrum Spreader Graft’. This method is now published in the scientific literature. He is the author of several papers and is co-author of several chapters in the newly published Plastic Surgery textbook ‘Plastic Surgery – A problem based approach’ as well as the author of a couple of chapters in the new Atlas for Craniofacial Surgery.

Ivo consults patients at 10 Harley Street in Central London and operates at both the Highgate Hospital in North London and the Welbeck Hospital in Central London. The types of procedures Ivo performs include:- facial aesthetic surgery (facelift, brow lift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, neck lift, otoplasty, rhinoplasty genioplasty, insertion of orbital rim implants, mandibular and malar implants), breast aesthetic surgery (breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast uplift (mastopexy), body contouring surgery (liposuction, body lift, abdominoplasty, brachioplasty and thigh lift).

"I was lucky enough to have Ivo Gwanmesia assigned to me to do my Revision Rhinoplasty after i was left with a wonky nose and unable to breathe. On my first consultation with Gwanmesia he completely put me at ease with his calm and understanding professional attitude. We discussed all the the issues i had with my nose after a different surgeon had unfortunately not operated correctly. Gwanmesia made sure my expectations of the revision and the reality of the situation may not be the same. On the day of my surgery Gwanmesia came in to see me to again reassure me, take photographs and run through everything one more time. Surprisingly he also saw me just before i got put to sleep again to reassure me. I cannot explain how much this calmed my nerves. After the surgery was complete he made sure all information on do's and don't's were given to me and that i was feeling ok. I am now 3 months post op and i am over the moon with my results. I can now breathe and my nose is completely straight and has a much nicer shape. The after-care i received from Gwanmesia was again very professional and thorough. Comparing my experience with Gwanmesia to the previous surgeon there is no comparison!! i would highly recommend Ivo Gwanmesia to anybody. He has done an outstanding job with my collapsed nose that has gone above and beyond my expectations. Thank you!!!"

"After a consultation I decided to go with DR Gwanmesia as he made me feel most at ease from the start. He was recommended at first due to being an expert in revision surgery as I had a bodged septo rhinoplasty on the NHS which needed correction and also to make the nose smaller and straighter. We had a meeting prior surgery to discuss what I wanted from the surgery and he made suggestions and we agreed on what we both wanted from the procedure. I met him on the day and he was calm which made me feel better as I was getting nervous by then. I was in surgery for 3 1/2 hours which was a bit longer than I expected but was down to Dr Gwanmesia wanting the results we talked about and also a lot of scar tissue from the previous surgery and breaks. It has been 6 months since surgery and I could not be happier with the results and how it now looks. Couldn’t speak highly enough on how Dr Gwanmesia and just wish I would have found it first time round!"
