nerve damage to lip area
I'm 7 months post op from a face, brow and neck left. My smile was very crooked after surgery and has slowly been improving. Is there anything I can do to speed up recovery. I'm an actor and need to be able to smile normaly again ASAP.

Dear Smiley,

Please keep in regular contact with your plastic surgeon in this regard. Massage of the area could assist and improve healing faster, depending on what exactly caused the problem.
