When I smile the muscle pulls it so hard. I really want to get surgery to fix this? (Photos)

The pointy chin can be reduced through an intraoral approach though bone reduction techniques. Your crooked smile shows a palsy of the marginal mandibular facial nerve on your left side which is why the lower lip pulls upward. The depressor muscle is not working on that side. Why that is there is unclear but if caused by Botox it should have worn off by now.
