I had a Mid face / Neck lift 14 weeks ago. My mouth is now crooked. Any suggestions? (photos)

Marginal mandibular injury
Mouth crooked from facelift
depending on what techniques were done, there certainly could be some marginal mandibular weakness (at the very least) resulting from your surgery. It can take 6 months to a full year for that nerve to regain its strength if it was just weakened during surgery from some manipulation. At this time, the best thing to do unfortunately is give it time. You are only 14 weeks out and you may be surprised as there may be some improvement over the coming months. Keep an eye on it and hang in there!
