Ok, so i'm 22 now and everytime i go out i feel like the ugliest among everyone, because i feel that my face is very big and rounded, i also have fat under my cheekbones wich make me look square. So, here's the thing, if i make a jaw reduction, will that make my face smaller en therefore pretty?, or what other things can i do to improve my face overall?

In general, jaw reduction removes support for your soft tissues allowing them to sag. It takes away definition and makes one look older. Removing some fat (buccal lipectomy) would provide more midface definition.

Cheekbone and jawbone reduction help make your face smaller and prettier

Based on your given photo, I would recommend you do cheek bone reduction and mandibular bone reduction ( Lower Jawbone reduction). These two procedures would help sweetening your face and make it more like V-shape. The incision for cheek bone reduction and mandibular bone reduction are located inside the mouth.

Jaw Reduction

In order to make round face to a more oval or triangular shape, we do a combination of jaw reduction (reduction of angle to body of the mandible) to chin alteration (usually anterior projection), and change the cheeks (fuller by implant or injection).  I recommend you to see a board certified plastic surgeon who specialize in this type of procedures.
