Your Dr can best tell what you will need. In general a large underbite will need a combo surgery and braces. Lesser bites might need just braces and a chin reduction. After your Dr has taken your records they can show you your problem and what proceedures you will need and what options you might have. Also a second consult with an oral surgeon might be helpfull. Drs also can show you before and after results for different approaches
