Are there any alternatives to surgery for treating vertical maxillary excess?

Purely cosmetic reasons. My upper jaw is too far forward and causes my upper lip to bulge forward because of gum positioning. Are there any cheaper alternatives to surgery?

Have you had an assessment by a specialist orthodontist? I can't say if surgery would help achieve your goal, but given that the occlusion of your teeth is fine, I think surgery would be a drastic measure.

So do you suggest something like Invisalign? I've had braces in the past but failing to wear my retainers caused my overbite to come back. I remember what I looked like before my overbite fully came back.

These two pictutes can show the maxillary excess a little better. Are you telling me there are other (and possibly less invasive and expensive) options other than surgery?
