Facial paralysis and disorders affecting facial movement result in a visible deformity that negatively impacts the physical and psychological well-being of affected individuals. Fortunately, corrective surgical and non-surgical options exist to address deficiencies found in patients with facial paralysis.
Facial movement disorders significantly vary in severity and individual evaluation is necessary in order to formulate appropriate treatment plans. These can range from Botox and physical therapy to complex reconstructive surgeries with nerve grafts and muscle transfers.
If you or someone you know is affected by a facial movement disorder, please contact Dr. Mashkevich to schedule an evaluation. For more information please visit the web site for the Facial Paralysis and Rehabilitation Center.
