Treatment for prominent chin? (Photo)

Deep mental labial fold
The length of your chin in a vertical dimension is causing your deep mental labial fold. I would recommend a genioplasty procedure to lengthen your chin and possibly reduce the prominence from a side view. A genioplasty allows a surgeon to control both dimensions of the chin and should give you the result that you are wanting to achieve. For the fullness of your lower face, I would recommend a procedure to reduce the lower buccal fat pad... the procedure is called a bichectomia. Both procedures can be performed at the same time and in the office under intravenous sedation. Best of luck!
If your upper teeth are pushing your lower lip down, a deep submental crease will result. If not a chin lengthening procedure by genioplasty or implant would help.
Based off the photos, it is difficult to provide an accurate surgical plan. A chin reduction/witches chin correction might be necessary to soften the appearance of your prominent chin. In concern to the Buccal Fat Removal- the photos are again hindering my proffesional opinion - Fillers like VolumeXC in the upper cheeks to lift the folds is a common treatment for nasal labial folds. Please call for an in person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon and hyperesthetic facial specialist.

Botox for the mentalis issue would help. Also, the labiomental crease can be reduced with fillers such as Voluma. I can't assess the buccal area well from the pictures. An in-office consultation with imaging and simultaneous morphing would help in the decision making process. Best wishes.
