First, as our facial nerve comes out of our brains, it gives off a few branches (chroda tympani) and stapedial (ear), and travels by the tragus cartilage in front of the ear to a higher level. Our facial nerve then branches into five main branches just in front of the ear, but still under the facial muscles and gives a combination of sensation and movement to our faces. The nerve comes out to a superficial level past the pupil area. If a branch is damaged during facelift or facial surgery, it may take days or months before function returns.
