Patients seeking a breast augmentation from a highly experienced and qualified physician put their trust in board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Larry Nichter. With more than 27 years of experience in the most advanced plastic surgery techniques, Dr. Nichter and his staff at the Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, California, are dedicated to providing patients with an exceptional cosmetic surgery experience in a warm and welcoming environment. Dr. Nichter is recognized as an Ideal Implant Premier Surgeon due to his vast experience working with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. Dr. Nichter has placed the IDEAL IMPLANT in over 100 patients, and is monitoring a nine-year study on the safety features of this exciting new breast implant technology.
Why Women Choose the IDEAL IMPLANT
Some women may worry about the cost of breast implants in Newport Beach, and also wonder how to pick the right breast implant for them. The IDEAL IMPLANT was invented by a plastic surgeon who took the best features of both silicone gel implants and saline-filled implants and combined them for a beautiful, natural, revolutionary new implant. While silicone implants are filled with a sticky, silicone gel, the IDEAL IMPLANT is filled with a sterile saline solution.
Breast augmentation patients can look at a silicone gel implant and the IDEAL IMPLANT side by side and see that they have a similar natural appearance. Unlike unstructured saline implants of the past, the IDEAL IMPLANT won’t collapse when upright. In fact, its unique design actually reduces folding and wrinkling, which is thought to be a common reason why implants rupture or deflate. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, you’ll know instantly if you have a leak just by looking in the mirror, which brings peace of mind to many women.
Comparing the Cost of Breast Implants in Newport Beach
The average cost of a breast augmentation is around $3,718, according to 2017 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This cost does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities, or other related expenses. When comparing the IDEAL IMPLANT and silicone implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT costs about the same. But Dr. Nichter says his patients should also consider the long-term investment of their decision:
“Because of the high rupture rates for silicone gel implants, I tell my patients to just plan on removing them every 10-12 years, because after that the rupture rate is so high. You don’t have to do that with IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants. You can just leave them in until there’s a leak because it’s just simple saline, the stuff that’s in an IV solution. It’s incredibly safe and so there’s far fewer lifetime surgeries with an IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, compared to traditional silicone gel implants.”
Breast Augmentation Before and After Photos
Dr. Nichter has invested his time and research on the development and study of the IDEAL IMPLANT since the early testing stages. For nine years, Dr. Nichter has followed patients who chose to have the IDEAL IMPLANT to see how the implant performed over time. Recent statistics just released from the IDEAL IMPLANT CORE study data showed that the IDEAL IMPLANT had lower rates of both rupture and capsular contracture when compared to silicone gel implants.
In these photos, you’ll see a 43-year-old woman who chose the IDEAL IMPLANT nine years ago for her breast augmentation. She is part of the group of women that Dr. Nichter continues to study.

Before surgery, this patient’s left breast was larger than her right breast, so each implant was filled differently to help balance total volume and size. These were 390cc implants which were inflated to a larger volume overall. The back of the right implant was inflated to 261cc, while the front of the right implant was filled with 121cc. This resulted in a total right implant volume of 445cc. The back of the left implant was inflated to 261cc, while the front of the left implant was filled to 93cc. This resulted in a total left implant volume of 417cc.
