Nerve Damage After Mentalis Resuspension?
Surgeon cut tiny branch of nerve - said would have permanent numbness on section of lip. Numbness one inch on mid lip+labiomental fold+ incisor numb. Do I allow surgeon try repair ( he could not do it time as 'couldn't see other end') or should I see a top microneurosurgeon? Is time a factor to consider? I know 3 months(when had op) is not long but I do heal fast and the rest of lip, had the normal 'tingly healing numbness' - unlike this one specific area which definitely feels very different
