Jaw Surgery Has Left Me with No Upper Teeth when I Smile. Do I Need Jaw/lip Surgery to Fix Smile?

When I was a kid I was told I needed Jaw surgery to fix my overbite. Well, I didn't expect them to take away my once beautiful smile. I now show no upper teeth when I smile and look like a grandma. I never smile anymore, and have been in severe depression. On top of that, my lips are deformed and have become paper thin. My nose also expanded, and I have numbness on my lips/chin. Do I need upper jaw surgery to fix the issue, or are they're less evasive procedures than jaw surgery again.
