Do I Need Jaw Surgery? (photo)

im 16 with an 8mm overbite. my old orthodontist didn't do anything to fix it and just left me in braces for 5 years. we filled a law suit and won. now we are with a new orthodontist who says i need jaw surgery. he said i could try the herbst but he doesn't guarantee that it will work because of my age and he thinks that my jaw has stopped growing.
