A 30-year-old female presented with both breast disfigure and pain
for 4 years. She had Polyacrylamide injection breast augmentation 5
years ago. Humps were noticed on the chests below the breast folds.
Ultrasound revealed larger areas of liquid under the mammary glands
extended to the subcutaneous tissue of the chests inferiorly. During
the injectable removal surgery around 200ml yellowish opaque
gel-like substance was squeezed and sucked out from each breast
through the areolar incision.
Nontoxic Polyacrylamide is
a polymer form of neurotoxic
Unpolymerized acrylamide can be present in very small amounts in the
polymerized acrylamide. Polyacrylamide had been legally used as
human soft tissue filler for various purpose such as breast
augmentation in China from December 1997 to April 2006, affecting
more than 300,000 people.
