Jaw surgery versus sliding genioplasty
I agree with your previous surgeons. Based on your profile and the contours of your chin, you would benefit much more from jaw advancement than chin surgery. I have not seen your bite nor photos other than that submitted, but from what I can see you definitely are a good candidate for mandibular advancement, and possibly maxillary impaction. Continue discussing this with your surgeon of choice. Make sure he or she is very experienced in orthognathic surgery and board-certified.

Best of luck!
