Chin Narrowing By Ostectomy

A v-shaped or more pointy chin can be achieved by intraoral ostectomies of the sides of the chin done by a reciprocating saw. This will make the chin bone more narrow. A central button chin implant is only used for a more pointy chin if it is horizontally deficient, which yours does not appear to be.
