What Are The Chances Of Regaining Sensation In The Area That Has Undergone Plastic Surgery?

You Hi, basically a few weeks ago i was in a car accident that resulted in a serious facial injury (a huge laceration across my eyelid, through my eyebrow and through the muscle in my eyelid) i had plastic surgery to repair this and the wounds are healing well but i am not regaining any feeling in my head/eyebrow area whatsoever. Im just wondering if this is normal or whether i should consult my surgeon to find out whether the nerve damage is too deep to ever regain feeling?

Hello,

It is because small subcutaneous nerves are injured by the wound. Unfortunately, the recovery will be slow and complete recovery is unlikely.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
