Thank you for posting your query.

Bell's palsy can lead to incomplete recovery of facial muscle weakness in about 5-10% of cases; in the rest, almost complete recovery occurs within 1-2 months.

At this stage (after so many years of your illness), there is no medication that can help you.

Physiotherapy including facial exercises may help a bit.

For good benefit, plastic surgery may be required. You can discuss this with a plastic surgeon.
