Can Chin Ptosis Correction Be Done with V Line Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in getting chin ptosis correction. I am very insecure about my chin especially when I smile, it seems to get bigger. I’ve seen that you have a lot of experience correcting this type of chin, so I am very interested in scheduling an appointment at your place. 

I would like to know how you would correct this. I would like to have no sagging, but without changing the length and width of my chin. I would like to have my jaw and chin to form a straight line, both from profile and front view (for reference, I like Ariana grandes lower jaw and chin :D) 

I thought about getting fillers in my jaw, and I want my chin to fit. I don’t want the v-line look, I want a more U/line look, I don’t want my chin to be too pointy.

A: The only effective treatment for chin ptosis is a submental technique which works by removing some of the inferior/overhanging soft tissue chin pad. By definition that also removes some chin length from the soft tissue reduction and may or may not make the chin a bit wider. In your case this work have to be combined with some submental/neck liposuction to get a better chin-neck profile relationship.
