Can an online doctor advice me on the risks and benefits of reconstructive facial surgery as I have wide cheekbones and big jaw ?

Male, 16 years old, considering getting reconstructive facial surgery as I have extremely wide cheekbones and big jaw so I would like the protruding bones to be narrowed and cut down. Do you think this is a idea? How prominent are the risks? What would process actually involve? How long would it take? Is surgery likely to become an addiction for me?
