Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
That is a good concern.
Bell's palsy related facial distortion may persist for long time.
Sometimes it may take more than a year to get back original facial shape.
Physical therapy of the facial muscles, electrical stimulation of the facial nerve, and also high dose steroid courses may be tried to restore the original shape.
Please discuss with your neurologist about these options.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
