Facial Paralysis at Cosmosure

Imagine, if you were unable to move your facial muscles, then how would you eat, drink, talk, communicate or even irritate someone by making faces? Facial Paralysis is a common problem that involves the paralysis of any structures innervated by the facial nerve which causes the cessation of any voluntary movement of the facial muscle. The most common reason for facial paralysis is Bell’s palsy, an idiopathic disease that may only be diagnosed by exclusion.

COSMOSURE has specialist surgeons to deal the situation with expertise. Their experience comes handy to resolve the issue for the patients in a simple manner.

When Should Surgery Be Done, and who are the right candidates for surgery?

  • People who have following symptoms – loss of taste, hyperacusis, and decreased salivation and tear secretion.
  • Unilateral facial weakness is also a major symptom of facial paralysis.
  • People having facial palsy can go through this surgery.


  • The patient is first consulted with by the surgeon regarding the effects and region of surgery.
  • There are different techniques like direct coaptation, interposition nerve grafting, cross-face nerve grafting, and micro-neurovascular free tissue transfer that can be performed.
  • After that, balancing and adjustment procedures are followed to give the face the final symmetry, for example upper eye lifting, static sling placement, and partial cervicofacial Rhytidectomy.

Recovery/ Post-Operative Measures

  • Physical therapy is advised to the patient after the surgery. The therapist teaches how to innervate the facial muscle efficiently after nerve transfer and grafting.
  • Facial exercise is important to gain maximum strength of muscle pull.
  • All the risks are reduced by the use of updated technology and careful techniques by our surgeons at COSMOSURE. This surgery is a day care procedure, and the surgical options are predictable with little downtime. We can give your face its strength back.
