Side Profile of Ladies Face

Many suffer from an inability to move the muscles of the face on one or both sides, which is known as facial paralysis. Facial paralysis can result from nerve damage due to congenital or birth defects, trauma or diseases such as stroke, brain tumor or Bell’s palsy.

Face paralysis occurs after the nerves in the face are damaged, which results in the muscles drooping or being weak.

Facial paralysis patients can benefit from surgical procedures like a facelift, neck lift, browlift, fat injection, upper and lower eyelid surgery or rhinoplasty, which changes the shape of the nose. All these aesthetic procedures help to provide a more rejuvenated, symmetrical appearance.

In New York City, Dr. Joshua D. Rosenberg wants you to be your best self. He will use his expertise and capability to perform advanced procedures to rehabilitate the paralyzed face and bring improved functional and aesthetic results.

Medical Conditions Causing Facial Paralysis

Common causes of facial paralysis include stroke, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, Guillain-Barré syndrome, Lou Gehrig’s disease and Bell’s Palsy. Additional causes can include surgery, trauma, tumors, viruses or Lyme disease.

 Different Treatments for the Nerve Damage that Causes Paralysis

The treatment plan for facial paralysis is specifically customized for every patient to achieve the best results. The facial muscles are controlled by nerves. When these facial nerves are damaged, it can limit the physical functions of the face. This affects muscle movement, which influences how you speak, blink, smile and appear in photographs. Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in New York City has effective treatment for face and neck lifting procedures including blepharoplasty, which restores droopy eyelids.

Contact Dr. Joshua D. Rosenberg today for a full consultation to go over all the surgical options for treatment to help you move forward with your life.

Karmita Avila

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
