How much can the maxilla move by mewing?

Wondering just how much expansion and upswing can be done through mewing. I was going through some of the forum posts and I read that John Mew said the maxilla is recessed by about 20 mm in the average human as of recently. I mean I doubt it's possible to move the maxilla that much but what is possible? Is 10 mm growth unrealistic? I am currently 18 and I don't have the worst facial structure but its not the best. Can your average joe's bone structure turn into model tier via mewing, proper chewing and swallowing, and by improving posture?

Absolutely! I am a 25 y/o male with very narrow palate and crowding, long face etc. who grew up a chronic mouth breather due to undiagnosed tongue tie which did not get corrected until I was 18. The same year I learned about orthotropics and began mouth taping and became a nose breather. I got some x rays done that year and found my airway was very small, like a straw. They told me surgery was the only option.

Seven years later I finally found a great doctor and am going to begin maxillary expansion in a couple weeks. Got some more x rays done and my airway was significantly larger!! Maybe double or even triple the size. My face is also significantly more symmetrical and defined. All I have been doing is mewing and nose breathing along with a very good diet with plentiful fat soluble vitamins and minerals.

so yes! Stay disciplined and you will absolutely get results.
