It all depends on the degree of forward or backward movement. Normally if it's less than 5mm facial change is minimal

In brief: Maybe

If the jaw surgery is corrective, to correct malalignment of your jaws, then necessarily your appearance will be changed, usually for the better. Discuss this with your oral surgeon in detail before surgery.
