The hemifacial lipomatosis (HL) is an extremely rare pathology that results in partial hemifacial hypertrophy. This case report presents a 16-year-old male patient who underwent surgery for swelling in the right hemifacial region 11 years ago and then presented to our hospital with a diagnosis of recurrent HL in the same area.
