what is this procedure called (first pic is how it currently is second is how i want it to look)

I have a nice jaw line and I’m really not concerned with changing my face much but the ¿skin? On my chin goes out as far as my bottom lip and it kinda gives me an unattractive side profile. I’m not looking to change bone structure just possibly remove the excess fat or skin. I’m only about 100 lbs so I don’t know if it’s a weight thing that would change from a a different diet or something nonsurg

Chin reduction surgery is a straightforward surgery that takes about an hour. An incision is made inside your mouth (no scar) and the bone is exposed and shaved down with high speed burrs. Dissolvable sutures are placed and downtime is minimal.

From your given photos, the most suitable procedure for your chin is V-line surgery or chin bony reconstruction surgery.
