Dr. Nichter used hybrid implants by Ideal Implant for this woman's breast augmentation surgery. There are chambers on the inside which are filled with silicone during surgery. The outer shell is silicone. This new style of saline implant has the look and feel of silicone and allows for customization during surgery to help correct asymmetry as seen w/ this patient. The right side was filled to 370 cc's, while the left side was filled to 335 cc's.
