Shaving/burring Method to Narrow Chin?

Is it possible to narrow the chin with the blurring/shaving method. I feel if I got a chin implant it will make my face look longer and the chin wider.

There are limitations to chin narrowing with the burr method, but certainly a procedure that can be performed. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

         The chin can be narrowed by burring.  This can narrow it a few mm.                                                                                                                                         Kenneth Hughes, MD                                                                                                                                        Los Angeles, CA

Chin Narrowing by Bone Reduction

+1

Lateral tubercle reduction of the chin by burring or saw osteotomy is a common technique for chin narrowing. That is done from an intraoral approach and will make the chin less wide and more triangular in shape from the frontal view.
