Facial Paralysis

Facial paralysis is a loss of facial movement due to nerve damage. Your facial muscles may appear to droop or become weak. It can happen on one or both sides of the face.


Causes of Facial Paralysis:


• Nerve damage

• Congenital (present at birth)

• Trauma or disease

• Stroke

• Brain tumor or Bell’s palsy


Facial Paralysis Surgery:


Facial Paralysis Surgery is used in the very latest reconstructive procedures to restore function, symmetry, and appearance for those with facial paralysis, or weakness on one side of the face.


Follow Up for Facial Paralysis Surgery:


It is extremely important to follow the surgeon’s post surgery instructions carefully, especially:


• Avoiding strenuous activity or lifting according to the surgeon’s instructions.

• Alerting the surgery team immediately in the event of any problem or unexpected change.

• Keeping follow-up appointments, one day, one week and one month after surgery.
