Pseudolymphoma, refers to a heterogeneous group of benign reactive T-cell or B-cell lymphoproliferative processes of diverse causes that simulate cutaneous lymphomas clinically and/or histologically. Thread lift involves the elevation of sagging tissues for rejuvenating the face, which loses its elasticity and volume as one ages, by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. The incidence of complications with thread lift is comparatively low, like small ecchymosis, mild erythema, mild transitory hyperesthesia, and mild postoperative tumefaction.[1] Cutaneous pseudolymphoma secondary to facial thread-lift procedure has not been previously reported as a complication. In this case report, we will be presenting cutaneous pseudolymphoma as one of the complications of thread-lift procedures and will be speculating its pathogenesis.
