Is Chin Reduction Surgery Better or Underbite Surgery in my Case?

When I was little, I was treated for an underbite using an expander and headgear. Now I am 14 and I have braces and my underbite is basically corrected. However, my chin sticks out a lot because of it and is shifted to the right, as seen in the pictures and looks different from both sides. If I had underbite surgery, would I have to have my teeth adjusted again with braces? And also, would either underbite surgery or chin reduction correct the asymmetry? Or is it better to leave it alone?
