What Exactly Can I Do to Fix my Chin, I Am Unhappy with the Way It Affects my Profile? (photo)

I have not done anything to my chin before, I was born with it; however I am dissatisfied with the way it looks. I recently found that is might be a deep labiomental groove problem. I looked into it and it said something about implants being a more permanent way to solve the problem, but I refuse to have any implants; I consider them unnatural. Sometimes i pinch where the crease is, and it looks normal. I basically want to know is there ANY surgery or facial exercise that can fix my deep chin?

Deep labiomental groove

The groove is best treated by filling it in  There are no exercises that will help.  The groove can be filled in with fillers (Radiesse is a good choice) or by an modified chin implant.  Subtle "defatting" of the inferior chin would be helpful.
