Pleomorphic adenoma

Visited RML Hospital ,they done tests like FNAC and USG of affected area just in front of left ear and suggested superficial parotidectomy surgery.They are giving dates after 2 months. I want to know the risks involved in this surgery and effect on facial nerves as well as effect of waiting 2 months. Also, suggest some good hospitals for this surgery. i have selected Dr Jayant Jaiswal of BALAJI ACTION MEDICAL INSTITUTE, PASCHIM VIHAR AND Dr Ramalingam of B.L. KAPOOR HOSPITAL, Which one is better.

Only notable complication is facial nerve weakness. It's a simple surgery. Anyone with Head&Neck experience can do the job.
