This is a 44-year-old patient left sided facial paralysis from the television report, which was caused by herpes zoster virus (Bell’s palsy). Only half a year after the nerve grafts and transfer, he can consciously produce a smile on the left side of his face (look at the typical "laugh lines" on his cheek and next to his eye). In addition to improved resting symmetry and control of fluids, his facial expression has been "dynamized" by the donor nerves. His joyful surprise is clearly recognizable in the right picture. His distinctive smile is now being diligently practiced with his own intensive exercises in front of the mirror as well as accompanying therapy in order to perfect it. His joy is contagious.
