I had the facetite procedure on my jowls seven weeks ago. The upper left side of my lip is not functioning properly. I can't drink from a straw, or pucker my lips. I can chew food, but have difficulty keeping food in my mouth on the affected side. Spitting after brushing my teeth is abnormal. I have tingling and itching sensations on that side of my face. The surgeon assured me that this was the result of a bruised nerve and that full function will eventually return. I have a follow up appointment two months, but I am nervous as I've not noticed any improvement in function seven weeks out. Should I be concerned and seek specialized treatment for this condition? Thank you

Left side upper lip not moving correctly after facetite.
Will wearing a corset/spanx help skin tightening during weight loss?
After liposuction people wear shape wear corsets to help skin tightening. Does it work while losing weight too?
