Facial Paralysis Specialist
Facial paralysis can occur from several causes and at any age. Common causes for facial paralysis can include:
- Tumor or cancer
- Autoimmune diseases
- Neurologic diseases
- Nerve disorders, like Bell’s Palsy
When these or other conditions cause any form of facial paralysis or difficulties with facial movements, expression or functionality, you need a facial paralysis specialist. Dr. Erez Dayan of the Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe offers facial nerve damage treatment.
Facial Nerve Damage Treatment
Facial nerve damage can present in numerous ways, and this will determine the precise treatment Dr. Dayan will recommend. There can be uncoordinated or unintentional facial movement, restricted movements on one side of the face, a lack of controlled movement that affects function, such as chewing or even no movement at all. Different conditions will affect different nerves and produce varying results.
Dr. Dayan will work closely with your neurologist to diagnose the exact cause of your facial paralysis and determine the best treatment that will restore as much normal control and movement as possible. A neurologist will perform the nerve-related procedures or repairs, while Dr. Dayan works to correct the cosmetic and some functional aspects of your condition.
Some facial nerve damage treatment can be accomplished with minimally invasive means, such as with Botox® injections. This can relax tensed muscles and allow for a better facial aesthetic in some cases. Some skin tightening or various facelift procedures can also be recommended to correct facial asymmetry or drooping eyelids, cheeks and more.
