I am 19 years old, had braces however my chin is now quite recessed and the skin on my chin is very tight when I close my mouth. Second side profile picture is what my jaw and chin look like when I push my jaw out.This is ideally what I would like to look like. What surgeries would you recommend to achieve a something like the second side profile? Also is there anything I can do in the meantime to perhaps improve it slightly, maybe see an orthodontist or get a small implant for the short term?

A chin implant may be a suitable compromise for you.
Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of chin implants and facial procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
