Unhappy Can't afford braces :(

I live in melbourne Australa and am currently 17. I have a class 3 jaw malocclusion, my bottow jaw protrudes by 10mm. To get the surgery (which i dunno how to afford either) i have to first wear braces for about a 6 months which will cost me around $7,000..to get my teeth aligned. I have no idea how i can afford this, rumor has it insurance doesn't cover braces, and even if it did i'd have to wait a year to get it done. I really want to get this surgery asap, collecting the money is one thing, but then having to come up with another $8,000 for the surgery within the year is another.
