The occurrence of hematomas continues to be the commonest major complication after female and male rhytidectomy with a reported incidence of 0.2 to 8.0 percent. Large expanding hematomas (30 cc) usually occur in the first 24 hours after surgery and often requires surgical evacuation. Small hematomas (2 to 10 cc) usually resolves spontaneously and can be treated by aspiration or drainage 1 to 2 weeks after surgery 1, thus many Authors recommends to use drainage to prevent and
manage hematoma .
