The post-op picture of this lady is wonderful. The Surgeon(s) and their team, who reconstructed the whole left side of this woman’s face, are exemplary. Thank you for sharing this case.
I wanted to comment on the post-op picture also. The team that did the reconstruction on her face is very skilled. Was there any lose of felling in her face or nerve damage? Would the side that was worked on possibly drup or stay the same with time and aging. Did she stay with her husband and what country did this happen in.
