What type of facial reconstruction (plastic surgery) would you recommend for a more "dimensionally proportionate" face? (photo)

Apart from a few things, I've really struggled with the way I look. I know that my face is disproportionate (weight is also a factor), and it's caused me a major lack of self-esteem. Would love to know how I could possibly improve my features.

I am going to assume that you mean non-surgical options. I would recommend that you start with Kybella. It's an injectable that melts the fat under your chin and delivers more definition to the jawline. Schedule a consultation with a very experienced injector to discuss.

Plastic surgery for disproportion of facial dimensions

Thankyou for your question.

You have mentioned plastic surgery but your question is in the non surgical section, so I assume that you are asking about non surgical options from the plastic surgical arena to address your concerns.

The photographs relate to the lower half of the face and the neck. I don't see the side view of the neck but from what I do see you have a pleasing heart shaped profile to the lower face perhaps with a slightly sharper point in the chin than the average person. The profile could be improved by reducing the neck with for example cryolipolysis (cool sculpting), a more permanent solution there and by filling out the chin contour with a long lasting filler such as Juvederm voluma. 

I hope that is helpful.

best wishes in the pursuit of your aesthetic goals.

It is difficult to fully evaluate your face and neck with only the pictures you provided.  I would say that it does appear that liposuction under your chin would help to balance your profile though.
