http://www.facialparalysisinstitute.com/ Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, one of the best facial paralysis surgeons in the world, shows a patient before and after undergoing facial paralysis surgery to correct paralysis on one side of the face. As seen in the video, the young girl had difficulty forming a symmetrical smile before her procedure. This patient underwent a two step procedure called a Gracilis Free Flap surgery, in which the gracilis muscle and its nerve is transplanted from the lag to the face to promote improved facial symmetry and reanimation.
