Center for Facial Paralysis Surgery & Functional Restoration

Is a Smile Restoration the Procedure for You?

The goal of restorative "smile" surgery is to re-establish facial balance and harmony both at rest and in motion while simultaneously correcting the associated functional problems.


The surgical approach is tailored to the individual and is influenced by the cause and duration of the paralysis along with the condition of the facial nerve and muscles. The patient’s age and medical history also influence the decision making process.

Restoration of an active smile and normal resting position of the cheeks and lips is a major goal in facial rehabilitation with functional, cosmetic and social significance. Paralysis of the mid-face often leads to sagging and asymmetry producing a loss of oral competence and drooling.

A large number of procedures are available to restore position, tone and motion to the cheeks and lips. The technique best suited to the individual and their situation is carefully selected after detailed analysis.
