Would I benefit from jaw surgery? (Photos)

A couple months ago my orthodontist mentioned that I would benefit from jaw surgery after my braces had been removed. I heard this was an expensive procedure but I feel like my teeth still stick out too much even after the removal of my braces so if that would help, I'd consider it. I've attached some pictures below

it depends. You should have a lateral ceph X-ray and have a consultation with an oral&maxillofacial surgeon to have a diagnosis.
