Chin Reshaping and Cleft Reduction
With a pointy chin that is not overprojected horizontally, an intraoral shave/reshaping can be done to make it less pointy and reduce the the size of the vertical cleft as well. It usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks to see most of the chin swelling subside although the final result can take up to three months after surgery to see.
