How to fix slight facial paralysis? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 2
Before considering surgery, I would want to ensure that you have adequate ability to close your eyelids (sometimes after facial weakness, that can be compromised) and check the health of the eye. I am also noticing an eyebrow asymmetry which could be related to the facial weakness (the right eyebrow is lower than the left). I would suggest seeing an oculoplastic surgeon who can do a full evaluation of both the eye and the face.
Ptosis is not facial paralysis.
Sometimes doctors make off hand remarks to patients. It is unfortunately because you end up believing something that is not at all accurate. You need revisional ptosis surgery. This type of work is tricky. You need a very experienced oculofacial surgeon for this work. Seek more than one opinion.
