Vertical Reduction Genioplasty with Chin Cleft Reduction

You have a very long chin with a steep mandibular angle. That could be signfiicantly improved by a vertical reduction genioplasty removing up to 10mm of bone. Since that procedure is done intraorally the chin cleft could be treated by the placement of a small dermal-fat graft between the muscle and the skin. Computer imaging would have to be done to see if jaw angle implants would also be beneficial for an overal more complete jawline change.

Your facial development pattern is quite common.if you have a reasonable bite,you could consider a genikplasty with a sliding bone surgery to alter the chin vertically and in profile as well as the width. Using damal implants would really change your look successfully.
