Paralysis can result in a drooping or "sagging" appearance due to a loss of muscle function.

Hemiplegia is a condition in which one whole half of the body is paralyzed from head to foot. In adults it is often a result of stoke, spinal cord injury, or central nervous system disease.

Facial hemiplegia is paralysis of half of the face and causes include stroke, brain tumor, traumatic injury, and nerve dysfunction. Bell's Palsy is a type of facial paralysis in which the affected half of the face droops due to partial or complete loss of muscle control. Bell's Palsy is usually temporary.
