Facial Rehabilitation for Facial Paralysis
Paralysis of the face can occur because of infection, inflammation, tumor or trauma. This can create difficulty with eye closure, vision, nasal breathing, eating, chewing or speaking. In addition, facial paralysis can cause debilitating asymmetry and visible deformity. A number of facial plastic surgery procedures are available for addressing these problems - depending on the details of the specific condition. After a detailed consultation, our surgeons will work with you to decide if you are a candidate for surgical treatment. Most of these procedures can be done on an outpatient basis.
