Abstract

BACKGROUND. Temporal hair loss has been reported to occur in up to 8.4% of patients after rhytidectomy. To date, no one has described the associated histopathologic findings. OBJECTIVE. The objective was to illustrate the microscopic findings seen in the affected area of hair loss after rhytidectomy. METHODS. Two punch biopsies from the temporal area were performed, and pathologic material was submitted. RESULTS. Histopathologic finding was suggestive of acute localized telogen effluvium. CONCLUSION. One mechanism for temporal hair loss after rhytidectomy is an acute localized telogen effluvium.
