Teenage height problem

Patient

Q: Iam 18 years old and a female. I have a problem with my height. I am really short and I also have a big face for my body. It is really abnormal and unattractive. I have been suffering this since after I lost my weight at very young age. I was 14 when I stopped eating a lot and I was really skinny. At the same time, I stopped growing too. And now iam fat and my face is the first one to get fat and the very last one to lose weight if I become slim. Sometimes it would just be the same fat even if I lose weight. I am wondering is there any chance of me growing? As I am eating a lot and I have gained a lot of weight. By the way,I have got a lump my legs. If igrow will my face be smaller?
