Question about surgery
Can you share some information about your condition, like your inter molar width, the condition of your malocclusion, and what is your goal from expansion? Every case differs and in some cases surgery is really needed. Even Dr. Mew considers that a viable option, but without knowing enough we can't help you.

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.
Your input could help many, many people
