Facial paralysis involves the loss of movement of the muscles of facial expression. So what that means is that a person cannot smile, the face droops, there’s an asymmetry that results, and this all stems from an inflammation or a dysfunction of the facial nerve itself. So if the facial nerves dot working, it’s not sending a signal to those muscles of facial expression, and then you get the paralysis or drooping of the face.
