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.
