Facial Paralysis Patient Smiles Again
Left with facial paralysis following surgery to remove a brain tumor, Anthony struggled to blink, drink or smile. Follow Anthony’s journey as he has a temporalis tendon transfer and eye surgery performed by facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Kofi Boahene to improve his quality of life.
