Facial Weakness

 7np

Facial Weakness is caused by damage to the facial nerve which controls the muscles of the face. There are many causes, including Bells palsy and tumours. Half the face droops, the eye doesn't close properly and saliva may drool from the corner of the mouth. The image on the right shows the facial appearance of facial weakness affecting BOTH sides of the face.

Facial weakness may be complete or partial, temporary or permanent. Severity varies, and the resulting disfigurement is a major psychological factor to patients. Surgical or medical options are available, including plastic surgery and muscle relaxing agents.

Dr Anthony Maloof offers specialised plastic surgical reconstruction for facial weakness, including the upper face and brow, mid face/cheek, lower face and neck, and upper and lower eyelids. The type of surgery required will vary between patients depending on severity and duration of weakness, and region of face involved.
