Hi, facial paresis or palsy is common after acoustic neuroma surgery and if it is paresis and is recovering, the chances of further recovery are there. But if it is palsy and your doctor has documented the need for excising the nerve, you need to go for rehabilitative procedures like gold weight implant for upper eye lid, sling operation for angle of mouth or jump grafting from hypoglossal nerve to facial or a cross over graft or a free flap neuromuscular transfer. Consult a facial plastic surgeon or head and neck surgeon for that. Regards
