Is Jaw Surgery Needed for 5 Mm Overbite? Any Alternatives?

Hi, i'm 15 years old and have a 5mm overbite. I don't wish to go for extractions as I've read some articles regarding pulling teeth as a method of treating an overbite: the results don't look so nice... So i'm left with another option: Jaw surgery. I would like to know if it is really necessary for my case and the consequences (risks of relapse, aesthetics, functional and such). Thank you in advance.
