There are two options for your chin reduction. One approach is a combination of bone and soft tissue removal. This is done by a submental incision from under the chin. This is a good technique of you only want a horizontal reduction of your chin and no vertical change. If horizontal reduction and some vertical lengthening would be appropriate then an intraoral bony genioplasty is needed. This choice can be determined by doing some initial computer imaging to see the exact chin reduction change that best fits your face.
The condition is called macrogenia and is corrected by sliding genioplasty. The chin would be cut and pushed back.
