Ihve had braces previously but the Dr kept a small overbite because he said its better for my profile with my nose. However, when I bite my lower jaw recedes and my face looks very unbalanced. When I'm not biting my chin looks slightly receding. What should my treatment be to fix my issue?

you have a small jaw and orthodontic treatment should have prepared you for this surgery. I would undo what braces have done and have the Orthognathic surgery.
