Crooked Smile After Bichat Pad Removal, Is It Permanent Damage? (photo)
I did a removal of the bichat pads 8 months ago. Even after all this time, my smile is crooked. Greatly reduced the fat of the face, but the right side of my smile does not raise (upper lip). After the surgery, this side of my face was incredibly more swollen than the left. I fear that the surgery has caused permanent damage. What can it be?
