Why do I have a crooked sliding chin after genioplasty? (Photo)

After I had a sliding genioplasty to reduce the length of my chin my face looks crooked. The left side has a dimple on the jaw line. I looked at the x-rays and the bone is slanted. How can this be fixed?

Sliding Genioplasty Asymmetry

If the bony cuts are asymmetric by x-ray and that correlates with the asymmetry that you see, then adjustment of the bone needs to be done. That could be realigning the osteotomy lines or a burring reduction of the longer chin side.
