Has anyone gone from a measurably recessed maxilla to a forward grown one?

I just got the y-plate expander, although I’ve read posts saying it’s not as good as the active because it isn’t as high on the palate.. I’m hoping to get more forward growth/placement/remodeling,I’ve already noticed a (relatively) big improvement from mewing with good body posture and chewing every now and then, but I’m curious to see the side profiles of these people who got results from chewing, cause the pictures are always frontal.


please don’t reply if it’s “mine looks more forward/prominent” I’m lookimg for someone who has taken clear pictures (don’t have to post them) or measurements in any way, preferably through a cephlagram

There were pictures in the success stories sticky but they seem to have been purged by imgur?

 No, but this is the goal! My cheekbones refuse (maxilla) to so much. But I’ve been trying for 1 year now, and let stop! It takes years, even for children.

For research and dissemination I will be collecting in this community the adult expansion, cranial adjustment, NCR, and face-pulling results. I implore our community users to keep accurate records for themselves and others; these can include dental/palate impressions, before/after pictures, X-Rays and 3D scans.

The purpose of this collection is for use as evidence for theories proposed here. This collection will only be re-posted on this community and will not be submitted anywhere else.

For those looking into expansion and movement in the near future, please consider keeping records for your own sake and for others. Pictures of dental impressions alone can be very helpful.

If you have successfully completed any expansion/movement of facial bones and have any of the above records, please submit them to the community with your personal story of what you did and what the results were (use multiple posts if necessary). Palate expansion, Maxilla movement up and forward, development of the orbital rims, zygomatic, and mandible / jawline are of specific interest. Please ensure that pictures are taken with the same angle, distance, and lighting: This will allow the community to see sharper jawline, higher cheekbones, decrease in dark circles under eyes, changes in nose shape, a more oval face, and improved symmetry.

If you wish to share anonymously, please send me a personal message and we will arrange an anonymous transfer. If you do not have any records to share,  your personal experience is also very valuable. Please tell us what you have done and what the results were.

Your input could help many, many people
