Is jaw surgery worth the risk - am I better off with dealing with this for the rest of my life? (photos)

I first noticed the problem when I was 13 and had oral braces. One day I went to bite a sandwich and my right side of my jaw popped when trying to fully extend and then popped again to close it. Since then it does it when I yawn or open my mouth wide. I know I have facial asymmetry and those problems correlate. I'm in the military and I'm allotted one elective survey for free. But I'm unsure of how the surgeons here are, for I don't know if I'd come out better or worse... any advice or help ?
