if you raise the saddle by 2 mm's it will almost certainly mean that the saddle will have a very high projection over the bridge. The only way to cure that whilst maintaining sub 13 mm string height is by altering the neck geometry, likely an expensive procedure.

The board does not need to be any particular thickness at the 12th fret - and the extension to the soundhole hardly matters. If its parallel at the moment then 1mm less at the 12th is not going to look odd. It might even make the neck pull up a bit under string tension ?
