Facial Paralysis Treatment
Damage to any of the many facial nerves can cause impaired movement and an unbalanced facial expression. Both are equally concerning to victims and are reasons to seek facial paralysis treatment from a highly qualified and experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Residents of Salt Lake City and other Utah communities are fortunate to have such a resource in Dr. Eric Cerrati.
Facial paralysis in various forms can cause different functional problems, like difficulty breathing, chewing, swallowing, drinking and speaking. Some paralysis symptoms can even cause eyelid problems that complicate vision. Issues with the facial nerves also cause loss of muscle tone and the ability to perform or control facial expressions. Often, the facial features begin to progressively droop and sag as more control and sensitivity is lost.
The nature of the damage or illness affecting the facial nerves determines where and to what extent the effects are felt and seen. Dr. Cerrati will perform a thorough examination as well as record a detailed medical history before proposing any treatment modalities for facial paralysis. This will be accomplished during a confidential facial paralysis treatment consultation with the patient and his or her loved ones.
