Facial paralysis is a debilitating condition, which results in an inability to smile, drooping of the face, and corneal irritation/eye damage. Various microsurgical procedures may be an option to treat facial paralysis, including nerve transfers, cross facial nerve grafts, and vascularized functional muscle transfer. There are “static” options as well that can improve symmetry and the ability to protect the eye.
