Patients with hypothyroidism at risk for prolonged edema after face-lift surgery

May 2, 2016

A small subset of patients with hypothyroidism were prone to prolonged edema following face-lift surgery despite being treated with thyroid replacement therapy, according to study results recently published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery.

Researchers conducted a retrospective review of 198 who underwent a face-lift between Jan. 1, 2014, and May 31, 2015. They identified four women (mean age, 63 years) with documented hypothyroidism and prolonged postoperative edema.
