Facial nerve injury after mini facelift
Dear Mini Facelift Patient from Atlanta,
Mini facelift, as it sounds, requires minimal skin undermining and dissection. Not knowing what the extend of flap dissection was during your surgery, it is difficult to diagnose your problem. However, according to your description, you may have a minor facial nerve injury. Minor facial nerve injuries usually resolve with time. Talk to your surgeon and make sure you have a frequent follow up with him. Good luck and good healing….. Dr....
