Various complications of rhytidectomy have been well described. Although there have been reports of traumatic pseudoaneurysm formation after cosmetic surgery, none has concerned rhytidectomy. We report the first known case of a superficial temporal artery pseudoaneurysm that ostensibly developed 3 months after a face lift. Pseudoaneurysm is an infrequent occurrence in the facial region, and the inclusion of this lesion in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue lesions is important if hemorrhage is to be avoided.
