Hello! I want to know which I should get first to get a dramatic or a very noticeable result on having a v shape face. Is it asymmetric jaw reduction surgery or an asymmetric chin shaving surgery?
Should I Get a Jaw Reduction or Chin Reduction? (photo)

Thinning the jaw area may help. I can't tell if a chin implant would help from the photos submitted. You really need an in-person exam to assess what is best for you. One option is to try Botox to the jaw. If you like the appearance, then a permanent jaw reduction can be done. Best wishes.

From that one picture, I'd suggest simply shaving the asymmetry off the left side of the chin. You have a masculine chin, and making it more "V" shaped would tend to feminize it. Correcting the asymmetry may help, though. A profile picture would help in providing a more detailed answer.
