Gunshot wound to face exits through neck: long term effects, medical jargon, avoiding paralysis?

I am writing a fic where one of the characters was shot in the face in-canon, but survived.  The entry wound was towards the base of the left cheekbone, and as far as anyone can tell it crossed left-to-right at a diagonal and exited through the back of the neck, somewhere between the Axis and C3 vertebra of the cervical spine.
