Facial Paralysis Surgery and Treatment

patient case studies banner
Facial expressions play an important role in communication, giving depth to our interactions with others. As such, face paralysis can leave one feeling self-conscious and even isolated. When trauma, tumors, viral infections, strokes, congenital differences, or other disorders impair facial nerves, it can transform a warm smile into an awkward grimace, or worse, an expressionless void.

Led by Dr. Michael J.A. Klebuc, Houston Methodist Institute for Reconstructive Surgery's Center for Facial Paralysis Surgery and Functional Restoration provides the foremost in facial paralysis treatment in the world. Our innovative surgical techniques can restore the paralyzed face, achieving facial symmetry, protecting the eye, and eliminating drooling.
