As a facial paralysis expert, Dr. Azizzadeh helped hundreds of patients over the years who were suffering from Bell's palsy and/or another type of facial paralysis.

"Bell's palsy is the leading cause of facial paralysis in America. The disease has a very sudden onset and patients experience almost immediate paralysis of the face," he noted, adding that the disease has a very sudden onset and patients experience almost immediate paralysis of the face.

Although Zucker is still dealing with some ongoing effects of the condition—for example, he is still unable to smile or laugh—Dr. Azizzadeh offered encouraging words of advice about Zucker's prognosis.

"Bell's palsy is a devastating disorder that can seriously affect a person's quality of life," Azizzadeh said, adding that fortunately, most people who are diagnosed with the condition can expect a full recovery with no lingering problems.

Dr. Azizzadeh said he is committed to using the most advanced methods to treat his patients who are suffering from Bell's palsy. He works tirelessly to make sure that the treatments do not cause further complications and that the patients enjoy a restoration of their facial movement.

For example, some of the safe and effective treatments Dr. Azizzadeh uses to treat patients with Bell's palsy include Botox, neuromuscular retraining, and surgery. More specifically, selective neurolysis is one of the most current and state-of-the-art surgical treatments for patients experiencing facial paralysis and synkinesis. In order to determine which treatment plan will produce the most optimal results, Dr. Azizzadeh takes the time to conduct a thorough consultation with every patient.

"Using the most cutting-edge technology and procedures, we are able to see amazing results in the treatment of patients with Bell's palsy and facial paralysis," Azizzadeh said, adding that he strongly encourages those suffering from Bell's palsy to seek medical attention from a highly trained and experienced facial plastic surgeon who specializes in facial nerve disorders.
