Hi, I am 16 and pretty sure I have pectus carinatum. It seems to be symmetrical and I was wondering how well bracing works, and success rate/risks of surgery.

I have some pictures included, but unfortunately I only have a low quality webcam. The webcam is also attached to my laptop so it was hard to get a good angle, but I think they work. Thanks in advance.
