PROF. DR. Park Sung Yong Analyzes Treatment Result for Patient Living 3 Years with Facial Paralysis
The patient’s original condition
The patient said that about 3 years ago she suddenly suffered from nerve paralysis on one side of her face. Her condition includes:
- The right mouth muscle is not movable.
- The mouth is distorted.
- The 7th nerve was paralyzed for 3 years.
When she smiles, her right mouth muscle is completely immobile. Sharing with the doctor, she said that she had been undergoing treatment at many places but the outcome was not as her expectation.
The following is the analysis of Dr. Park Sung Yong about the patient’s recovery results:
PROF. DR. Park Sung Yong’s analysis
After 20 days of surgery, it can be seen that the facial expression on the right side of the patient has improved by about 70% compared to the original condition. Distortion of the mouth has been significantly improved, the movement of the right facial muscles has become more natural, the face has become more well-proportioned. After 1 to 2 months, the patient’s condition can improve from 80% to 90%.
Nowadays, there are lots of ways to treat facial paralysis such as using drugs, physical therapy, acupuncture, implantation, etc., but for the case of facial paralysis for years of this patient’s, the above methods are not effective.
Gangwhoo Cosmetic Hospital applies the surgical method using autologous materials, which helps the nerves to recover better, thereby shortening the recovery time. This method is considered the best in Viet Nam nowadays and even better than some muscle paralysis methods in Korea and other countries.
