Static reconstruction of malar region in facial paralysis: a new alternative technique for plasty of symmetric mouth appearance.

Abstract

Static suspension using fascia lata graft is used as a reconstructive procedure against drooping of the mouth corner for treating longstanding facial paralysis. Although it achieves symmetry at rest, movement of the mouth corner at mouth opening is restricted to some extent because it is fixed with fascia lata to the immovable temporal fascia, the parotid… (More)
