I have fixed the posture of my tongue and i am mewing.
I wondered if a surgical operation to open the palatine suture followed by a rapid palatal expander could work.
I have only 18 so in theory just open the suture of the palate and enough to have expansion.

what do you think?

I'm not an expert but, if your tongue fit between your upper teeth then it's enough to expand your palate through mewing, no surgery needed

In the future, please put more detail about the question/content of the thread in the thread title

What you're talking about is SARPE, Surgically assisted rapid palate expansion. No, absolutely do not go for surgery for an issue which has been proven to be non-surgically correctable, especially at 18. You can either expand with your tongue, or you can can expansion done with a device.

ok, but with which device?, I checked the FAGGA, but I live in Italy and it's not yet there. With ALF? Could the classic RPE be good at my age (17 Almost 18)?

thanks

Your tongue is the device.

I am 32 and started 13 years after you. I have expanded without surgery or devices.

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
