How Are Chin Reductions Performed?

I find it difficult to find plastic surgeons who have experience with this type of procedure. Chin augmentation seems more common than reduction itself. I don't know how to describe my chin but i found photos of a patient who had the same issue as me. Unfortunally this Plastic surgeon is quite far from where I reside. I'd like to know what was done to this patient, because it is really semiliar to me. The patient photos- http://www.facesplus.com/before-after/facial-procedures/chin-reduction/

An exam is needed to determine how much fat is present, the bone structure present, skin laxity, and anatomical symmetry.  Traveling to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is important to know your options, and outcome scenarios.
