I have a long chin. I don't like it. I want it shorter. My cheekbone doesn't stand out but my chin does. What can I do? (Photo)

Vertical Chin Reduction

Vertical shortening of the chin can be done through either an intraoral wedge removal genioplasty or a submental burring reduction. The decision between the two depends on whether the excess chin pad soft tissues need to be reduced as well.
