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.

As you undergo correction in the near future, please consider keeping records for your own sake and for others. Pictures of dental impressions, scans, medical reports reports can be very helpful even with all personally identifying information blocked out.
