Surgery or Invisalign
Invisalign does not work well in the long term for underbite cases. You need to have the skeletal discrepancy considered and planned around. Surgery has a high morbidity (pain and recovery and possibility of side effects. If someone has suggested surgery, you should spend time and get many more opinions. You should go with full brackets.
