Need Plastic Surgeon in Texas
« on: January 18, 2010, 04:24:50 pm »
I have had 2 AN's, the first being in 1982.  That is the one that caused my paralysis of the right side of my face.  I have had a Hypoglossal Anastomosis in 1985 with good results.  I am now 50 years old and I find as the years go by that my upper lip pulls more and more to the left (non paralyzed) side.  I am interested in finding a skilled facial plastic surgeon that can remove or smooth out my Philtrum.  That is the dimpled space between the nose and the upper lip.  If it weren't for my Philtrum being crooked you wouldn't be able to tell there is anything wrong with my face when I sit and rest.  I live near Dallas Texas and any help, thoughts or ideas on this issue will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much!  I'm all smiles inside!  :-)  Cindy
