Botox for facial asymmetry after Bell's palsy
Thank you for your question. It is extremely important that you consult your neurologist first to be sure that it is safe for you to have Botox.
You should also consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in plastic surgery following neurologic injury and has an excellent reputation in your community.
In some cases it is possible to use Botox in the normal, nonparalyzed side of the face and eyes to reduce the intensity of muscle contraction and create a more symmetrical look with the previously paralyzed side that does not move completely.
