Best approach to damaged/torn nerve from facelift? (Photos)

Hi lower face and neck lift 13 days ago. Smile now as in pics. After saying it would correct, Dr suddenly wanted to take me back into surgery now to check/ repair the nerve. I refused. I'm told that if i need corrective surgery it makes no difference if it is today or in the next ten days but would have been ideal to do neurological tests in first few days. True? I don't know how much swelling and debilitation will occur in a second operation. Appointment with neurologist due Monday. Advice needed.
