Kalpesh Vakharia, MD is drawing outside the lines to explain Modified Selective Neurectomy, also called Selective Neurolysis, to help improve the appearance and facial function of post-facial paralysis.

Modified Selective Neurectomy is effective in improving the ability to spontaneously smile while providing natural looking facial function and symmetry. In a recent study published in The Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 98 percent of participants in this procedure reported a positive result. 

This procedure involves cutting a specific set/combination of nerves and muscles in order to relieve some of the tension, spasms and limitation of smile in select patient groups. Bell’s Palsy, among other conditions, can qualify a patient for a Modified Selective Neurectomy procedure.
