I have a chin that is vertically long there is a lot of excess height that I want to minimize. My question is how much can be taken off the vertical height in a chin reduction? How much down time is needed after this type of procedure?

The answer is enough. Enough of the chin is removed to give you the desire look. Swelling will take several months for complete resolution.
