Polyacrylamide gel has been widely used for soft tissue contouring for more than 30 years and has been used for breast mammoplasty augmentation in China since 1997. As Korea is close to China, Korean clinicians often encounter the patients who have undergone polyacrylamide gel augmentation mammoplasty. Therefore, radiologists should know the ultrasonographic and mammographic findings and the complications of polyacrylamide gel augmented mammoplasty; this can be helpful in the diagnosis and management of those patients. We report the characteristic radiological findings of a patient who had undergone mammoplasty augmentation with polyacrylamide gel.
