Is permanent nerve damage possible with chin augmentation? I've heard stories about permanent nerve damage causing partial paralysis as a result of plastic surgery. Is this a risk with chin augmentation? .

Chin Aug Nerve Inj: Complications and side effects are very uncommon with chin augmentation. However, there is a small degree of risk.

I had a brain injury in oct of 2012 from an mva. I have partial paralysis on my left side. Are there any beneficial exercises to help get function bac?
