Size of jaw implants
The size of the implant is more determined by the amount of deficiency you have.

More risks with larger chin and jaw implants
As with any surgery there are always possible risks. Potentially the risks can be greater with larger implants. This is a topic that would best be discussed in person as it is a bit too lengthy to cover in this forum. If you are planning to have the procedure done here in the US, I would be more than happy to take a look at you. Please contact my office at 212-688-5882.
Best of luck to you.
