Are jaw implants safe?

Jawline implants have been utilized for many years with several types of materials. The most common types are Silastic-silicone like, Goretex-like, and acrylic-like products. The Goretex can be customized at the time of surgery and yields the most ideal 'look' in my view. The use of 'standard' sizes, can lead to the impression you noted. Maintaining a balance with the rest of the face is key; and avoiding the 'over prominent' look is important.
