The average recovery period is 8-12 weeks, however it is possible to recover within a month. Around 50% of patients will recover fully within the first weeks and a further 35% will have recovery over the next few months. This is a temporary condition, but 100% recovery is not guaranteed. Regeneration of the facial nerve can continue up to and beyond 18 months. Continued recovery in small increments has been reported years later.
