Does Teeth Need to Be Extracted for Wearing Braces?

Hi, I am at 31 age. My problem is my lower teeth is pushing out the upper teeth. I would like to wear braces for beautiful smile. I consulted a dentist who said that 4 teeth should be extracted to make space. I am scared of hearing. Can you please suggest me. I would like to clear some doubts regarding this 1.) how would be my face cuts after wearing braces? 2.) extracting teeth may result head ache and eye sight? 3.) does it impact if I married? Thanks in advance.
