V Shaped Chin Revision Options? (photo)

What are the best options to achieved feminine v shaped chin? The chin implant I had made the chin looks wide, squarish, masculine. Replace the implant with different shape or bone cut ?

You would be better served with a sliding genioplasty because the chin becomes more narrow as it is brought forward. An implant makes the chin wider as it adds projection unless it is a central button style implant.
