They would like to encourage other affected patients to tackle their paralysis pro-actively and are making a very valuable contribution in this respect.

Symptoms of flaccid facial palsy
After being asked to smile or laugh, the already pronounced asymmetry of rest becomes even more pronounced: no movement is visible in the area of the right corner of the mouth.
The patient should close her eye here.
Reconstruction of facial paralysis with temporal transfer of eye and corner of mouth
A temporalis-muscle transfer has been used powering eye closure and corner-of-mouth lift function at the same time. When slightly clenching her teeth, now the patient can arbitrarily close here eye for lubrication of the cornea and and create a smile.
Reconstruction of facial paralysis with free muscle transfer
Reconstruction of facial paralysis with gold implant to the eyelid, static suspension procedure, and face lifting
Congenital paralysis left. Condition after free muscle flap
Reconstruction of the lid closure and the smile with motor replacement surgery
Asymmetry lower lip: After Botox and fat transfer, a symmetric smile appears
Brow/upper/lower lid lifting and temporalis transfer
Reconstruction of complete eye closure by platinum implant insertion to the upper eyelid
