What is Long Chin Surgery?

Finding the Golden Ratio of Chin for your face

Long face refers to an unbalanced and asymmetric face that is long downward or upward. Long face is mostly narrow in width and chin is retruded. In some cases, they can’t close their mouth completely even though their upper lips are not short. And it includes the case that their gum is shown too much when they smile due to overexposed front teeth.
