Facial Reanimation

Bell's palsy is a condition causing paralysis or weakness of the muscles on one side of the face. Damage can cause the affected side of the face to droop and can damage the facial nerve. This can affect the sense of taste, how you make your tears, or saliva. In most cases, the weakness is temporary or significantly improves over weeks.
