3 weeks post Zygoma fracture and operation. 1 week after swelling down 70%. Last 2 weeks last 30% did not move at all. (photo)
Surgery went well and there were no complications. Bone re-positioned and fixed with mini metal plates through a cut in my mouth. Partial numbness of the facial nerve is present, yet where the root of infra-orbital nerve is - strong numbness. The nerve was not ripped but strained yet l am worried. Is it too soon to worry or this flatness of cheek is serious? I can move my face (wink, pout etc) yet face there is tight and very asymmetric only when l smile. Fracture was on left side Thank you.
