Facial Trauma requires precise understanding of the anatomy for aesthetic reconstruction. The most dreaded complication of doing a facelift is cutting the Facial Nerve. It is possible to cut one branch, but it is almost impossible to accidentally cut all the branches. Here is a patient who was attacked and the left side of his face was slashed open, severing all the branches of the Facial Nerve.
Repairing this requiered precise microsurgical reconstruction.
It is our personal opinion that surgeons who cannot perform microsurgical repairs of the FACIAL NERVE should not be doing FACELIFTS. As this case demonstrates, Dr. Knight demonstrates that he is capable of repairing not just one, but all the branches of the facial nerve if they are injured.
