Abstract

We present in this work our results on repair treatment of sequela as consequence of facial palsy using a static suspension technique as adjuvant to facial palsy´s lesions treatment by Polydioxanone tensor threads (PDO) and Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This technique was used as a treatment in four patients with sequela of facial palsy due to several etiologies. We expose the peculiarities of each case, their personalized treatment and the results that we have obtained so far. Our patients present an improvement of their facial aesthetic as well as their pronunciation, chewing capacity and eyelid closure. Therefore, they developed a better functional and psychological adaptation to their residual sequela due to severe facial palsy.
