Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
Facial Paralysis Treatment
Facial paralysis occurs when a person is no longer able to move some or all of the muscles on one side of the face.
Facial paralysis is almost always caused by:
- Damage or swelling of the facial nerve, which carries signals from the brain to the muscles of the face
- Damage to the area of the brain that sends signals to the muscles of the face
We perform in-office and surgical procedures to treat common facial nerve problems such as trouble with closure of the eye, sagging of the skin of the upper eyelid and eyebrow area, nasal blockage that often affects the paralyzed side of the nose, sagging of the skin of the cheek, trouble pronouncing words due to decreased movement of the lips, and through forming normal facial expressions.
To determine if facial paralysis treatment is the right decision for you, please schedule an appointment with one of our facial plastic and reconstruction specialists.
