Hi there!

The procedure is unlikely to be directly related to the symptoms described, though mild difficulty in chewing/ swallowing is not uncommon for a few days after an anesthetic procedure. I would suggest getting the facial weakness evaluated in detail by an internist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
