I'm a 21 year old college student who has been self conscious about my appearance since I can remember. The primary focus of my concern is my long nose with a slight dorsal hump and bulbous tip, as well as my deficient lower jaw. I have photoshopped what I would hope my results would be with surgery. Is this realistic/feasible? What procedures would make these results possible? I am sick of dwelling over my appearance and am ready to make a change. :)
Could These Results Be Possible with Chin Implant/rhinoplasty? (photo)

Rhinoplasty and Sliding Genioplasty
What have demonstrated are reasonable expectations from your rhinoplasty and chin augmentation surgery. Given that you have actually lengthened your chin somewhat you may need a sliding genioplasty as opposed to a chin implant to achieve that exact result.

Reasonable expectations for chin implant and rhinoplasty
The photographs show a reasonable result from a chin implant placement and a rhinoplasty. Both procedures can be performed at the same time under one anesthesia as an outpatient surgical procedure. Please see the link below for patients who have undergone the same combination of rhinoplasty and chin implant in our practice
Results of Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant
The results you have morphed do show that you have reasonable expectations from a rhinoplasty and chin implant placement. During consultation with an experienced surgeon the goals of your surgery will be refined.

Rhinoplasty and chin implant
Your photos are difficult to clearly see. But from what I can tell the combination of nose and chin surgery could work well for you. Good luck. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
Surgery will help
You need an in person consultation; however, it appears as if some surgery on your nose and chin may give you what you desire.
