• Neodymium Magnet Implant •
Our magnet implant procedure is £150.
We offer gold-plated neodymium (rare earth) magnets that have been coated in implant-grade silicone made by Steve Haworth.
Our most popular implantable magnet is only 2.5mm x 4.2mm in size and is 20% stronger than the v1. The most common placement is in your fingertip, specifically the tip of your ring finger, however these can be implanted in any area of soft tissue that has a minimal fat layer.
We also have larger magnets available from Steve Haworth that are 2.8mm x 7.6mm for £180. These are too large for most fingertips, but if you have large thumbs they will fit just fine. These are much more powerful than the smaller size and are a popular magicians implant for tricks.
Neodymium Magnet implants, sometimes incorrectly referred to as a magnetic implant, can have all sorts of useful applications. Mechanics can use them to find lost or hard to reach screws, electricians can use them to detect live wires without touching them and therefore prevent electric shocks, jewellery makers can use them to locate dropped beads or findings. It’s also just cool as fuck and many people have them done purely for the novelty aspect of being able to pick up small magnetic metal objects (specifically ferrous metals such as iron). Having a magnet implanted gives you extra sensory capabilities and will allow you to feel electrical fields near power outlets, generators and pylons.
Magnet implants and other biohacking implantable devices such as NFC RFID chips are becoming more popular thanks to the growing grinder andbody hackers community. This procedure is considered an early Transhumanist or H+ advancement in the world of biotechnology and transhumanism.
• Procedure •
It takes around 2 minutes to make the 1cm incision and insert the magnet under the skin.
Suture stitches are not necessary for the procedure so a follow-up appointment is not required.
We use skin closures to ensure neat healing, minimal swelling and to reduce the potential scarring.
The incision is normally fully closed 5-7 days later (as below) and the swelling will dissipate over 3 weeks.
The incision scarring is usually completely invisible by 3 months.
