Fat grafting could help you also I would consider implants in your lateral jaw to also masculinize your face and make it look less long.

It is difficult to give clear advice as your photo appears darkened. I recommend consulting with a qualified doctor for facial cosmetic surgery who might be able to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. It's possible the issues you have are genetic, and dependent on your facial bone structure, and there may be solutions, such as adding volume to your cheek with filler or fat transfer or enhancing the mid-face with facial implants to add more definition. Facial implants bring balance and better proportion to the structural appearance of your face. They define your face by increasing projection and creating more distinct features. This all depends upon a proper consolation with an appropriate doctor.

Your photo is dark so it's hard to make specific comments

in will make a few general comments

 

1- a long face in a young male may be due to the underlying boney structure. Craniofacial or maxilla facial surgeons address those issues

2- al long face in a women that is long because of a long forehead can be helped with bangs

3- a long face in older patients can be due to a lack of distinction between the face and neck.  This can be improved with a face/ neck lift
