If there is serious concern about your appearance, then I would suggest you to consult a cosmetic surgeon who can evaluate you for the same and also comment about the feasibility of reconstructive surgery. I wish you all the best for the same.

you will have to first visit an orthodontist who will take a series of radiographs and models to diagnose the cause of ur deficient chin. He along with a maxillofacial surgeon will decide regarding the treatment plan and the need for a surgical correction...
take care...
