This case takes place in California and involves an older male who presented to a plastic surgeon for multiple cosmetic procedures, including a rhytidoplasty facelift and Botox facial fillers. The patient had undergone multiple other procedures with the same doctor, all of which lacked complication. On this occasion, the facelift procedure was completed and the patient was released, with instructions to follow-up with the surgeon in two weeks. During the ensuing days, the patient planned to consult the surgeon about a chemical peel procedure but noticed redness, inflammation, and warmth radiating from the site of his incision. The patient had called the physician’s office to inform them of his symptoms, at which point he was told that he had nothing to worry about. In reality, he had developed a severe infection, which required numerous procedures to remedy as a result of delayed intervention.
