Polyacrylamide gels (PAAGs) have been widely used for breast augmentation in China and the former Soviet Union since the 1990s. However, breast injection of PAAGs was abandoned due to various complications such as induration and lumps. Currently, this injection procedure is illegally practiced in South Korea and there are a few reports on the radiological findings of PAAG injection mammoplasty, especially describing the sonographic features. We report three cases of PAAG injection mammoplasty.
